Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy provides the essential amino acids, including the branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) requried for muscle protein synthesis and to initiate lean muscle-building. This product contains a host of amino acids, such as L-Glutamine, Citrulline and L-Tyrosine to specifically enhance performance and recovery.
Essential Amino Acids have been studied for decades by leading scientists around the world. Studies conducted by NASA have examined how amino acids may reduce muscle wasting in astronauts. The bulk of evidence clearly points toward an anabolic effect of essential amino acids, as reported in numerous research papers. This puts EAAs in a prime position to support optimal health and improve body composition.
What Does Essential Amino Energy Do?
Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy combines the world's best EAAs with beta alanine to reduce lactic acid build-up in the muscle and support endurance for a hard-hitting gym session. Beta alanine is an amino acid that supports the synthesis of carnosine, a dipeptide found in high concentrations in skeletal muscle tissue that has an antioxidant effect and acid-buffering role.
With the addition of nitric oxide precursors, Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy dilates blood vessels to improve the supply of oxygen and nutrients to working muscles whilst potentiating the all-important muscle pump. This formula contains citrulline, a specialised amino acid that elevates blood arginine levels more rapidly than arginine itself. Just to be safe, optimum nutrition have also added arginine to the equation. These amino acids are used as "raw materials" to support the synthesis of nitric oxide.
Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy prevents catabolism and ensures that you have all the nutritional support needed for lean muscle gains. This is achieved by including eight of the nine essential amino acids. Tryptophan is not required for muscle protein synthesis as it is not incorporated into muscle protein.
Optimum Nutrition Essential Amino Energy incorporates a natural energy blend into the mix from both green tea and green coffee extracts. Instead of typical caffeine or caffeine anhydrous, naturally sourced caffeine contains antioxidants and other synergistic nutrients, like L-theanine. L-theanine increases alpha brain waves, which help to offset some of the side effects of caffeine, which can sometimes lead to jitteriness or scattered focus.
Essential Amino Energy is a versatile product that can be used any time as a pick-me-up. Amino Energy can be used as a potent pre-workout energy supplement at a dosage of 2 to 6 scoops, depending on your level of caffeine sensitivity.
How to Use Essential Amino Energy
