Betancourt Pure Amino - 28 Servings
Pure-AminoTM is the most advanced BCAA Endurance & Recovery Drink Mix available. It improves upon the typical 2:1:1 ratio of BCAA’s by providing a 4:1:1 ratio (Leucine 4g, Isoleucine 1g, Valine 1g) based on the fact that L-Leucine is the most important Amino acid when it comes to anabolic signaling for muscle growth and tissue repair (recovery)1. Pure-AminoTM also features the muscle anti-oxidant NAC: N-Acetylcysteine which has been shown in research to aid the protection of muscle cells during exertion by promoting Glutathione2. This is also what is believed to be responsible for NAC’s ability to boost aerobic endurance in some athletes3. To further promote Glutathione, Selenium is used as well; these two muscle protecting ingredients (NAC and Selenium) have been shown to boost endurance and possibly hormone levels as well.When can I take Pure-Aminotma:
- Pre-exercise: for a non-stimulant boost in exercise performance and a delay in fatigue.*
- Intra-workout: can be taken during training to promote muscle repair or a delay in fatigue. *
- Post-exercise: the 4:1:1 BCAA blend featuring L-Leucine will promote recovery from intense exercise. *
- Also supplement with Pure-Amino at any time during the day in between meals to promote an anabolic state. *
- NAC & Selenium shown to boost glutathione, which is linked to energy production
