Key Benefits

  • High in BCAA - The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine & L-Valine are the KEY to instigating the muscle repair process. Each can of Amino Energy drink contains 1000mg of L-Leucine and 500mg of L-Isoleucine & L-Valine using the proven 2:1:1 leucine heavy ratio for optimal muscle growth.
  • L-Glutamine - L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the bloodstream and imperative for effective muscle use. Research has shown it promotes effective muscle growth, improves power and curbs cravings for sugar, helping you to maintain a healthy diet.
  • L-Arginine - Arginine is a KEY ingredient if you're aiming for maximum blood flow & muscle pump. Drinking Amino Energy both before and after you train is the ideal way to deliver a consistent supply of L-Arginine to your body, maximising muscle pump while you are train!
  • Taurine - Taurine is a muscle hydrating ingredient; combined with the L-Arginine you can expect massive muscle fullness from the Amino Energy.
  • Beta Alanine - This is the ingredient responsible for that "tingly" feeling you get when you drink Amino Energy, but it isn't just to let you know you've taken it! Beta Alanine works to buffer the lactic acid build up in your muscles which causes the "burn" when training hard. By buffering the build up you can train for longer before the burn kicks in!
  • Caffeine & Green Extracts - Optimal Nutrition have extracted caffeine from natural Green tea and green coffee for a massive boost to mental focus. 100mg of caffeine per Can gives you a clean kick to get through your workout and reduce fatigue afterwards.
