Sugar Free. Support growth. Enhance muscle recovery. Premium grade aminos. Highly bioavailable amino acids for muscle growth and recovery. Essential amino acids responsible for muscle anabolism. "Nutritional supplementation may be used to treat muscle loss with aging (sarcopenia). However, if physical activity does not increase, the elderly tend to compensate for the increased energy delivered by the supplements with reduced food intake, which results in a calorie substitution rather than supplementation. Thus, an effective supplement should stimulate muscle anabolism more efficiently than food or common protein supplements. We have shown tat balanced amino acids stimulate muscle protein anabolism in the elderly...." Elena Volpi et al., American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 78, No. 2, 250-258, August 2003. Amino Acid Supplements Effective In Increasing Muscle Performance. This study examined 10 weeks of resistance training and the ingestion of supplemental protein and amino acids on muscle performance and markers of muscle anabolism. Nineteen untrained males were randomly assigned to supplement groups containing either 20g dextrose placebo ingested 1h before and after exercise for a total of 40g/d. Participants exercised 4 times/wk using 3 sets of 6-8 repetitions at 85-90% of the one repetition maximum. Data were analyzed with two-way ANOVA (p<0.05). The protein supplement resulted in greater increases in total body mass, fat-free mass, thigh mass, muscle strength, serum IGF-1, IGF-1, mRNA, MHC 1 and lla expression, and myofibrillar protein. Ten-wks of resistance training with 20g protein and amino acids ingested 1h before and after exercise is more effective than carbohydrate placebo in up-regulating markers of muscle protein synthesis and anabolism along with subsequent improvements in muscle performance." D.S. Willoughby, J.R. Stout and C.D. Wilborn. Biomedical and Life Sciences Volume 32, Number 4,467-477. Advantages of Amino Acid Supplementation: To fully allow for tissue repair it is necessary to derive all the essential amino acids to facilitate the muscle building process. This is why proteins that include every essential amino acid are known as "Complete" proteins. Proteins that do not contain every essential amino acid are known as "Incomplete" proteins and are lower in quality in terms of aiding muscle growth. Important Amino acids such as L-arginine (for increasing growth hormone levels and improving blood flow), L-glutamine (for muscle recovery and the immune system), the BCAA's (for tissue repair and protein synthesis) can all be found in one place, along with many other amino acids that have important processes in the human body.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Twenty amino acids are needed to build the various proteins used in the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues. Eleven of these amino acids can be made by the body itself, while the other nine (called essential amino acids) must come from the diet. The essential amino acids are isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Another amino acid, histidine, is considered semi-essential because the body does not always require dietary sources of it. The nonessential amino acids are arginine, alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine. Other amino acids, such as carnitine and taurine, are used by the body in ways other than protein-building and are often used therapeutically. L-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea that is said to help relieve stress. Beta-alanine has been used to prevent fatigue during exercise.
