Each serving of Amino IV contains 5g of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), the amount typically found in a 25g serving of protein.
Since 2013, Amino IV has always been formulated with essential amino acids (EAAs), the amino acids that your body cannot produce and must be consumed through your diet.
Each serving is packed with premium electrolytes, so you can reach for Amino IV during those sweat-filled training sessions to replenish key minerals.
Why take BCAAs and EAAs?
There are 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) that our bodies do not produce, so we must get them through our diet. If you are consuming enough protein every day then you are getting a good supply of EAAs. If you aren't good about eating/drinking protein, every day, then you should probably add in Amino IV. Those who are weight training, endurance training, or any other activity that causes a high use of skeletal muscle will have a higher demand for EAAs to help repair the muscle tissue.
Three of the EAAs are known as branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), and it is these three that have the most activity in signaling the process of muscle protein synthesis in the body. Since 2013 we have known to combine BCAA's with all the other EAAs, as the body must have saturation levels of specific EAAs in order for the BCAAs to have the greatest impact. Yeah, it is a mouthful, but you can trust in us to know how to formulate from science. Amino IV's got it all.
Amino acids are also burned as fuel in the body, similarly to carbohydrates. Since most of our customers consume a post-workout Select Protein shake that delivers a surge of amino acids, we recommend consuming Amino IV during your workout, similar to how you'd enjoy a sports drink when training.
Animal-sourced amino acids tend to have higher levels of heavy metals, poor taste, and worse solubility. We use only 100% vegan ingredients in Amino IV.
These aren't your typical cheap electrolytes found in a sports drink. We use forms that have high bio-availability and added purpose for training. Most electrolyte powders are loaded with table salt, while we use novel forms like glycerophosphates.
Like all of our products, our raw materials and finished products undergo third party testing for ultimate quality control and assurance.
with superior forms of electrolytes you won't find in your gas station sports drink. Amino IV replenishes and refreshes while delivering amino acids to be used as fuel.
Drinking electrolytes is most commonly associated for their importance to replenish yourself during/after sweating, and there is no doubt about that! When it comes to sweating, sodium is the most important electrolyte to replenish.
Amino IV's smart electrolyte blend contains a modest amount of sodium, but we put a bigger focus on electrolytes like magnesium and calcium, which sports drinks contain little to none of. These electrolytes are vital in things like muscle contraction, so for the purpose of any type of weight training or intense athletic training, our electrolyte blend shines.
On top of this we did not use cheap forms of these electrolytes, which have low bioavailability and can cause bloating of your gut, or even have a laxative effect at certain amounts. As always, trust in us to use the best.
