Sometimes, simplicity is key. Amino Factor is a simple product. It only contains three ingredients: L-Leucine L-Isoleucine L-Valine Those three amino acids make up the Branched-Chain Amino Acids or BCAA’s. Basically, these are the most important amino acids you could take in to help protect and rebuild muscle tissue around workouts. Amino Factor is a 2:1:1 Instantized BCAA product. That specific ratio is one that has been clinically proven to increase muscle protein synthesis, speed up recovery, reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), and reduce muscle catabolism (waste). 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. What are BCAA’s? 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!
2:1:1 BCAA RATIO- The perfect ratio of branch chain amino acids (BCAA’s). The BCAA’s in Amino Factor work to promote muscle recovery and prevent muscle breakdown.
WORKOUT STRONGER AND LONGER- BCAA’s start being special the moment they hit the body. They are spared by the liver and sent directly to the muscle tissue where they can be used as fuel during workouts. The longer and more intense you workout the more BCAA’s will be called on and used as fuel. While there is no stimulant effect, users often feel tough workouts become more manageable as they find they can push through, keeping the same intensity from beginning to end.
BURN MORE FAT- BCAA’s aren’t sold as fat loss supplements, but maybe that should be reconsidered. While they can’t help you sitting still, BCAA’s effect on protein synthesis during workouts means more fat gets incinerated! It takes calories to build new muscle and ingesting BCAA’s before and during workouts enhances the bodies’ ability to turn fat and carbohydrate (glycogen) into energy. Additionally Leucine has been shown to stifle hunger. Eat less + Burn more = Fat Loss.
ARE BCAAs SAFE? 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.
