You may be asking yourself "Why don't you have _____ in it?"
That's a great question, and truthfully - it's because it didn't make sense for us.
When we created Amino Factor, we wanted a true 2:1:1 BCAA product with a great flavor - and no gimmicks!
We could have added glutamine, taurine, beta alanine, etc. but ultimately the goal of Amino Factor was to make a great BCAA product that is incredibly versatile regardless of your goals.
BCAA's are simple - three ingredients - and they work. Even without the gimmicks and flash.
BCAA's are Branched-Chain Amino Acids.
Amino Acids make up all the protein we consume in every food source. There is a total of 22 different Amino Acids.
Out of the 22 Amino Acids, there are 9 Essential Amino Acids - those are the ones we HAVE to eat to survive. The other 13 amino acids can be 'produced' in our bodies after we have consumed the 9 Essential Aminos.
Out of the 9 Essential Aminos, we have the 3 BCAA's - Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine.
Those three amino acids are the magic-makers. They're the ones that increase protein synthesis, help with soreness, and help you break through those plateaus!
Absolutely. Since BCAA's are just amino acids, there's very little possibility of any sort of allergy or reaction to them. BCAA's are just part of our food sources, just extracted so we can get them in by themselves to be utilized as quickly as possible.
Amino Factor can be used by everyone that is exercising and needs to repair muscle. It can also be utilized to protect muscle from being lost during a weight-loss phase.
Simple - Mix 1 Scoop with about 10oz of water around your workout. That could be before, during, or after! Personally, I mix it with my water while I'm working out and sip on it in between sets. This helps me to increase my water intake and stay hydrated while also protecting my muscles and aiding in the process of repairing them after the workout.
Some of the effects are long-term, so you won't notice them as easily after your first dose. You should notice decreased soreness and quicker recovery after your first dose. People tend to notice this the most when they are taking it for the first time with a grueling workout they know will leave them sore for days - and realize they are not nearly as sore as they would have been normally.
On Training Days: As a dietary supplement, mix one serving of Amino Factor with 8-10 fl. oz of water. Consume pre, intra, or post-workout for best results.
On Non-Training Days: Amino Factor can be consumed anytime to improve muscular recovery and increase protein synthesis.
Warning: Not recommended for anyone under the age of 18. Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing. Always consult your physician before using this or any other dietary supplement.
Love the flavor!! The taste is so delicious!
Hey Amber, happy to hear you like the flavors!!! The Amino's are very tasty!! :)
The raspberry lemonade is great as an addition to water at the gym or I like to mix it with some sparkling flavored water. Delish! Helps with those sugar cravings, too.
Definitely can see the difference. My muscles recovery is much faster. It is also so delicious. Helps me with sweets craving.
Our Amino's are delicious Elena, glad you can feel that the product is working!! :)
I definitely notice improved stamina and recovery across all exercise. Highly recommend before, during, after a workout!
We're happy you like the product Karen!!!
I love the Amino Acids. The flavors are great and the product really works!!
Hey Brad, We're really proud of our Aminos. Great taste and nothing else you don't need. Thanks for your review!!
Truly the best tasting BCAAs I’ve ever had. So many amazing flavors, Gushing Gummy by far my favorite! I also love how well it blends, no clumpiness or needing to stir forever. And it mixes very well with unflavored Glutamine without changing the flavor. I love it so much that I have to Eeny Meeny Miny Moe before every workout! You will not regret it.
Thanks Rimma!!! It is hard to choose the best tasting flavor!!
Simple the best results and by far the best taste
We think they taste great too Derrick!!
Best tasting amino I have ever had. I may have added some rum to it and blended with ice :)
Awesome Renee!!! It taste so good I'm not surprised the cocktail was tasty!
I absolutely love the taste and since I have started using it, my body is not as sore during the day as it was in the past. It mixes easily, and I add it to my glazed donut protein shake to make it taste like a caramel apple donut.
We're happy you like the products Jill!!!
Amino Factor is the best. No need to try any other BCAA supplement.
We're happy you like it Ryan!!
