Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy provides the essential amino acids, including the branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) requried for muscle protein synthesis and initiating muscle-building. In addition, this product contains a host of amino acids, such as L-GLutamine, Citrulline and L-Tyrosine, that specifically aid in performance and recovery from exercise.
Essential Amino Acids have been studied for decades by leading scientists around the world, with studies for NASA even looking at how to reduce muscle wasting in astronauts. There are countless research papers examining the effects of essential amino acids on human health and body composition, with evidence pointing towards a strong anabolic effect.
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 to support muscle endurance for a hard-hitting gym session.
Beta alanine is an amino acid that supports the synthesis of carnosine, a dipeptide (composed of two amino acids) that is found in high concentrations in skeletal muscle tissue and exerts an antioxidant effect, as well as buffering acids.
With the addition of nitric oxide precursors Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy dilates blood vessels to supply oxygen and nutrients to the working muscles at a more rapid pace 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 acid are used as "raw materials" or "building blocks" to support the synthesis of nitric oxide.
Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy prevents catabolism and ensures you have all the nutritional support for quality lean muscle gains. This is achieved by including eight of the nine essential amino acids. Why only eight? Tryptophan is not required for muscle protein synthesis and is not incorporated into muscle protein.
Optimum Nutrition Essential Amino Energy incorporates a natural energy blend into the mix from both green tea extracts and green coffee. And naturally sourced caffeine makes all the difference. Instead of just taking your typical caffeine or caffeine anhydrous, naturally sourced caffeine contains natural antioxidants and other synergistic ingredients, like L-theanine. L-theanine increases alpha brain waves, which help to offset some of the side effects of taking caffeine, as caffeine can sometimes lead to jitteriness or anxiety.
Essential Amino Energy provides a versatile product that can be used any time during the day for a no nonsense pick-me-up or just increase the dosage for a potent pre-workout energy supplement.
