Delivers a multi-function, performance enhancing intra-workout to provide optimal recovery support, increase muscle hydration and support muscle growth.
EliteAmine features a select combination of clinically researched ingredients in effective amounts that mixes easily and tastes delicious!*
EliteAmine works to repair muscle tissue during and after exercise with a 2:1:1 ratio of Branched Chain Amino Acids BCAAs, Glutamine + Sustamine® and HICA, all contributing to repairing muscle tissue and decreasing post-workout soreness.* This means you can recover faster and be back at your training the next day feeling fully recharged.* EliteAmine is the only BCAA recovery formula to include ActiGin™ – a new and patent pending complex that has demonstrated clinically to increase high intensity endurance, increase recovery and decrease inflammation.
Potassium is found in abundance and is closely related to Sodium, both of which are important for cell hydration. Healthy foods rich in potassium include beans, leafy greens, potatoes, squash, fish, avocados, mushrooms, and of course bananas. Potassium is a part of every cell in the body and is important for proper brain, muscle, heart and nerve function.
Sodium is an essential nutrient for all animals and some plants. In humans its most important function is to maintain the water balance in the body. Sodium is found in trace amounts naturally in foods such as fruits and vegetables, although the main dietary source of sodium is added in our diets. Sodium ions work to keep cells hydrated and its main function is to carry signals across the cell membrane making muscle function and nerve responses possible.
Magnesium is an especially important mineral that regulates a diverse range of functions in the body including protein synthesis, blood glucose, blood pressure and muscle and nerve functions. It is also the second most abundant element in human cells. Magnesium rich foods include spinach, squash seeds, nuts, fish such as mackerel, and beans and lentils.* Branched Chain Amino Acids BCAAs
Branched chain amino acids are amongst the most important amino acids we can consume as they are not only essential (meaning we must obtain them from diet and they cannot be synthesized by our bodies), but are also direct precursors to proteins that translate into muscle tissue!* The specific ratio of BCAA of 2:1:1 (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine) is the same ratio that constitute approximately one third of skeletal muscle tissue in humans and is most similar to animal muscle tissue. BCAAs have been researched for their effects on post exercise recovery and muscle soreness as well as reducing muscle protein breakdown during exercise.
L-Glutamine, Sustamine® (L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine)
L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in human blood, and just like amino acids plays a big role in protein synthesis (muscle growth). There are an abundance of sources of L-Glutamine in foods such as meats, fish, eggs, wheat, beets, spinach and cabbage, however despite its wide availability is still considered to be conditionally essential – really meaning your body can never have too much of this amino acid.* We have also included a glutamine dipeptide, Sustamine® a patented form of L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine that is absorbed at a much higher rate than glutamine alone.* The combination of these 2 forms of glutamine contribute to better cell hydration and can also be a source of energy next to glucose, while preventing muscle catabolism during exercise.
Alpha-Hydroxy-Isocaproic acid is the end product of Leucine metabolism (where protein synthesis uses Leucine to create muscle tissue) and as its bi-product triggers anti-catabolic signalling by flushing out toxins that can break down muscle tissue.
The Cocos nucifera is a member of the palm family and the seed or nut as we call it is actually called a drupe. This tropical super food is a staple in the diets of many people in the tropics and subtropics, and is gaining much popularity as a natural source of hydration. Coconut water has been used for intravenous rehydration in extreme remote situations where there has been limited access to medical saline. It truly is nature’s hydration offering a whole host of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals and its electrolyte content, which gives it the ability to hydrate cells effectively.
ActiGin™ is a proprietary all-natural absorption and performance enhancing support ingredient combination, derived from highly purified Panax notoginseng and Rosa roxburghii. It has been shown in studies to support enhanced endurance and reduced oxidative damage to muscle tissue. This exciting new ingredient compound is standardized to a highly fractioned concentration to deliver maximum results.
