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.
Loved the sample pack to be able to try different flavors. Great taste and definitely helps to eliminate muscle soreness. Blue Hawaiian is a favorite as is raspberry rage
