Switch Nutrition Amino Switch


  • All Essential Amino Acids
  • Perfect Ratios for Nitrogen Utilisation
  • Boost Muscle Repair
  • Support Exercise Performance



Switch Nutrition Amino Switch delivers all nine essential amino acids in ratios that are perfectly in alignment with the Master Amino Acid Pattern. Yeah, I know. It's all sounding a bit science-ey. However, when it comes to scientific validation, Switch Nutrition Amino Switch is bang on the money. So let's explore this in more detail. 


There are nine essential amino acids that the body can not synthesize. If we do not consume them through our high quality protein foods in our diet (or supplements ... hint, hint), then muscle tissue is catabolised to provide them. If this happens too much over time, then we start to lose this important reservoir of amino acids, which is muscle. You see, essential amino acids have so many vital roles in the body. They are the most important nutrients for the human body, after only oxygen and water. In fact, rearch into cases of self-imposed starvation (hunger strikes from long ago) showed that only when blood essential amino acid levels began to fall did organ health become compromised. Fortunately, living in developed nations means that we do not see much of this. However, this does illustrate just how important these nutrients really are for human health. The EAAs in Switch Nutrition Amino Switch are important for so much more than just exercise performance and recovery.

Switch Nutrition Amino Switch is based on the Master Amino Acid Pattern research, which has clearly demonstrated in a number of clinical trials that this ratio is perfectly taken up by the cell. This is the essence of bioavailability. 99% bioavailable, to be specific, which is the Net Nitrogen Utilisation (NNU)! The further we get away from this balanced ratio, the less we find the cell can take up from the blood. This means more of the EAAs are broken down for energy with a toxic by-product called ammonia. So more bioavailability is certainly a good thing. It means less toxicity, and more anabolism, whether this be general upkeep or building of organs, soft tissues, bones or muscle. 



amino switch benefitsThe Master Amino Acid Profile has been demonstrated to be an excellent adjunct for weight loss programs, ensuring that muscle is not catabolised for energy during these diets, which is often the case, and helping to prevent the re-bound weight gain that so commonly occurrs once a diet is completed1. Muscle mass has a role in setting the basal metabolic rate, or the rate at which we burn calories at rest (and when active). So to finish a weight loss program with more muscle means our calorie expenditure is higher. Not only are EAAs excellent for use during weight loss, but also for repair and recovery from exercise. They may also be taken immediately before or during exercise in order to stimulate muscle protein synthesis (MPS). MPS is an anabolic pathway of the body, which, when active during moderate to intense exercise, helps to offset the catabolic effects of cortisol on muscle mass2,3.  



Switch Nutrition Amino Switch is an exceptionally well-rounded product that helps you achieve your body composition goals whilst profoundly supporting the general health of the body at the same time. This product may also be used to complement a diet that is low in protein, or low in quality protein, for situations of muscle wasting, or when the important processes of digestion and absorption are hindered.

How to Use Switch Nutrition Amino Switch


Before training - consume 1 serving of Amino Switch in 400 - 600ml of water to reduce muscle catabolism (breakdown).

During Training - consume 1 serving of Amino Switch in 400 - 600ml of water up to every 40 minutes of exercise

After training - consume 1 serving of Amino Switch in 400 - 600ml of water to improve muscle recovery.

Between meals - consume 1 serving of Amino Switch in 400 - 600ml of water to support a positive nitrogen balance.
