AMINO BLAST is a fully disclosed bcaa & eaa supplement with performance and hydration blend containing L-carnitine-tartrate, Betaine and Electrolytes.
What are Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAS)?
Branched Chain Amino Acids are essential amino acids made from Leucine (5g), Isoleucine (2g) and Valine (2g). They are considered essential as the body cannot make them by itself so must come from food or supplementation. The correct dosage for Leucine to trigger protein synthesis is 5 Grams.
Why use aminos?
During exercise protein breakdown increases rapidly but protein synthesis fails to rise, meaning training sessions are less productive than they could be. Because of this your body falls into a catabolic state (muscle wasting) and rapid muscle recovery becomes something far away from your grasp. Using Amino Acids during your workout can help prevent this and increase protein synthesis.
Amino Acids are not just beneficial during your workout though, you can use them both pre and post workout to help improve performance and recovery for both between sets and post workout. They can also be used any other time of day to help prevent muscle wasting such as upon waking or just before you go to bed.
Who can use them?
Any active adults that are taking part in intense training or exercise.

L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate (3g) - L-Carnitine-Tartrate (LCLT) is the most superior form of L-Carnitine for muscle recovery, performance and supporting hormone balance. A study into LCLT showed a significant reduction of muscle damage, the better you can recover the harder you can train and the more often you can train.
Betaine (2g) – Has been proven to boost strength up to 25% and muscle power by up to 20%. Since that study many more have come out backing up the claims that with the use of Betaine muscular fatigue is delayed allowing athletes to train harder for longer.
Electrolytes – Magnesium (16mg), Phosphorus (60mg), Potassium (70mg) and Sodium (30mg) - Crucial to rehydration during and post workout to avoid injury and replenish what is lost in sweat that cannot be replenished with water.
