AMINO SMART Amino Edge 420g
- 9 Essential Amino Acids
- 4.2g BCAA per serving
- 5.3g Glutamine per serving
Amino Edge™ contains all 9 essential amino acids necessary to maximise recovery and build muscle, plus 1 extremely important non-essential amino acids (Glutamine) sometimes known as a conditional non-essential amino acid. These 9 essential amino acids cannot be made by the body, they must be consumed. Essential amino acids are the “building blocks” of the body and are absolutely crucial to your body if you want to reach your maximum fitness and athletic potential.
Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in human muscle – over 60% of your muscle mass is made of Glutamine. During intense training, Glutamine levels are greatly depleted in your body, which decreases strength, stamina and recovery. It can take up to 6 days for Glutamine levels to return to normal after extreme explosive or endurance exercise. For optimal sports performance consuming approximately 5 grams of Glutamine rapidly speeds up the process of muscle repair and recover
L-LEUCINE, L-ISOLEUCINE, L-VALINE 2:1:1 RATIO BCAAS & HOW THEY WORK
BCAA’s make up 35% of human skeletal muscle mass, during intense training, the body is normally in a highly catabolic condition or muscle wasting state, whereby the bodies demand for BCAA’s spikes to begin the recovery process. If the blood is not rich with BCAA’s the body will scavenge them from muscle in other areas of the body to begin the recovery process. Providing the body with Branch Chain Amino Acids in supplement form, especially during those times of exercise stress profoundly affects the process of protein synthesis enabling it to continue onward ensuring maximum muscle recovery.
