Boost Muscle Growth and Performance with the Aminocore Advantage

Why there is a need of Aminocore? Muscle protein is made up of 20 Amino Acids (AA), of which nine are considered Essential Amino Acids (EAAs), meaning they cannot be produced by the body in amounts necessary to sustain, much less optimize, physiological functioning and muscle growth. When it comes to getting the correct balance of EAAs, hard training athletes, including bodybuilders, must remember that muscle protein is in a constant state of turnover where protein synthesis is occurring continuously to replace proteins that are constantly being broken down for energy and tissue repair. A failure to achieve the right balance of dietary EAAs means that it will be impossible to synthesize new muscle proteins. Instead, the breakdown of lean mass will continue to supersede its regeneration and the athlete will fail to grow a single ounce of muscle. This is where the Branched-Chain Amino Acids’ L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine (muscle-specific EAAs) are of particular importance. Of the three BCAAs, L-Leucine remains the primary precursor for muscle protein synthesis and plays a major role as a regulator of intracellular signaling pathways – notably mTOR – that are responsible for switching on and sustaining muscle protein synthesis (growth). But all three BCAAs, along with the remaining EAAs, must be supplied in exactly the right ratio for full muscle-building effect.

 

That a steady infusion of BCAAs, and a complete balance of all EAAs, remains essential to continuous muscle growth is undeniable. For the purposes of building muscle and optimizing energy, however, the BCAAs reign supreme. To perform their role, these “muscle” aminos, unlike other aminos, are spared by the liver and instead go directly to the muscles, where they are used for fuel or to build and repair muscle. The harder we work, the more we burn through our BCAA supply. This means that to keep the muscles firing to their fullest and growth steady we must have on board a bounteous supply of BCAAs. With the advent of the ground-breaking Aminocore, today’s most potent BCAA formulation, we can now maintain a constant state of muscle protein synthesis to avoid the catabolic consequences of unregulated muscle breakdown. In this way, the high dose BCAAs contained in Aminocore have a unique capacity to stimulate the highest possible rate of muscle protein synthesis. In addition, this specifically-engineered product will also fuel protein synthesis triggering training intensity while stripping bodyfat to single digits. Here’s how it works.

 

Optimal ratio of BCAAs:  The proper ratio of BCAAs in sufficient qualities remains paramount for maximum muscle protein synthesis. As such, Aminocore provides a scientifically-validated 45:30:25 ratio of L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine and an unrivalled 18.8g of BCAAs to maintain, and sustain for longer, the highest degree of muscle protein synthesis. The study from the Karolinska Institute, a world leading medical university also responsible for selecting Nobel laureates in Physiology or Medicine, found that supplementing with high-potency BCAAs such as those found in Aminocore profoundly enhanced human muscle building, an effect that was mediated through changes in signalling pathways controlling protein synthesis. Indeed, the BCAAs were found to be a major catalyst in muscle cell Muscle Building Signalling, engaging this process by a staggering 350%.

 

Powerful BCAAs: Along with its powerful anticatabolic (muscle preserving) benefits, the BCAAs in Aminocore also help the body to tap into fat stores while hanging on to hard-earned muscle. In addition, Aminocore doubles as a fuel source during prolonged exercise when glycogen stores have been depleted. During training, the body invariably leeches protein from muscle to provide a backup energy source. By taking Aminocore both before and during our workouts, the body will instead turn to a ready supply of BCAAs rather than hard-fought muscle tissue, a process that preserves muscle, boosts energy and enhances metabolic efficiency (and fat loss).

 

Additional power of B Vitamins: As well as significantly boosting muscle protein synthesis to keep muscle turnover high and muscle growth on the increase, Aminocore supplies a uniquely-powerful matrix of six B-Vitamins (varied forms of B3, B6, B9, and B12) to upregulate metabolic power, release cellular energy, support muscle protein synthesis and optimize nutrient absorption.

 

The Right Ratio
As stated above, and as scientifically shown, the correct ratio of BCAAs remains among the most important of muscle growth determinants. With Aminocore, the lifter receives a perfect 45:30:25 ratio of BCAAs to optimize continuous growth. This ratio includes 3681mg of Leucine, that unparalleled trigger of muscle protein synthesis, to greatly enhance the body’s nitrogen balance: a state of active muscular growth. A ‘limiting nutrient’, L-Leucine must also be supplied in specific amounts in relation to other aminos in order to properly assimilate protein in the body. Aminocore also features 2454 mg L-Valine, a key component in glucose metabolism, protein synthesis and immune support. L-Valine enhances glucose production for energy during intensive training, thus providing the endurance edge, while also improving the detoxification of excess nitrogen in the liver, thus reducing fatigue to further bolster energy levels. Finally, Aminocore provides 2045mg L-Isoleucine, which increases the rate of post-workout muscle recovery and the regulation of blood sugar. L-Isoleucine also assists hemoglobin formation to boost red blood cell effectiveness, to further increase energy levels and extend muscular endurance.

 

High Potency BCAAs
A product that is clinically proven to provide a 350% increase in muscle growth activation has to be of the high possible potency and efficacy. Along with being the purest, free-form source of BCAAs and having no added fillers or non-BCAA aminos, Aminocore achieves such a staggering increase by supplying 8.18g of highly bioavailable BCAAs in the perfect ratio. With the right dosage and the purest possible pharmaceutical-grade formulation, clinically significant results in muscle protein synthesis, energy-enhancement and fat loss can be achieved. This is the Aminocore Advantage.

 

Killer Bs
To augment its muscle-boosting ratio of BCAAs, a further key feature of Aminocore is the combined effectiveness of six B-Vitamins (varied forms of B3, B6, B9, and B12), which work together to engage a number of important metabolic processes in the body to: enhance fat loss; break down nutrients down into more readily absorbed constituents; improve protein metabolism and cellular growth; upregulate cell signalling and DNA reparation; boost immunity; enhance red blood cell formation; and, with their antioxidant function, improve health and vitality.

 

Balancing the EAAs
To develop a complete physique and improve training performance, we must first be sure that our EAA levels are suitably high. The best way to do this is to take both a reputable EAA product like musclEAA and  BCAA formula like Aminocore. The key thing to remember here is that whenever EAA (including BCAA) levels are low, muscle tissue will be sacrificed and energy levels will plummet. Therefore, to maximize muscle growth, each of the nine EAAs must at all times be in ratios conducive to keeping the structural metabolism essential to the biosynthesis of new proteins high. This, combined with a high protein powder supplement like Isoflex, well-balanced diet, hard training and proper rest and recovery are the true keys to building a lean, muscular physique.


Directions

To activate protein synthesis and increase muscle recovery, take 1 serving of Aminocore during weight training or any athletic event. On non-training days, Aminocore can  be taken anytime on an empty stomach. Due to the potent nature of this product, it is not recommended to exceed 2 servings daily. Pour 1 scoop of Aminocore into water and shake or stir well. Take during workouts, or anytime you want to decrease muscle breakdown and increase protein synthesis. Carefully read the instructions on the label and follow the directions before use.

Amino Acids Aren't Just for Athletes - Here's Why.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Amino acid supplements are most often associated with sports and athletic endeavors, taken to help support energy and improve workouts. But they may be helpful in the everyday health-conscious person’s regimen, as well, helping to support sleep, mood, immune function, energy production and more.

What are amino acids?

Amino acids are organic compounds that make up proteins. Proteins and their amino acids are well known as the building blocks of life. When your body digests proteins, they’re broken down into amino acids, which are then used for many different purposes, including growing and repairing body tissues and breaking down food. The body uses 20 unique amino acids, and all 20 are necessary. However, nine of these amino acids are essential, meaning they must be obtained through your diet because your body can't make them on its own. Essentials amino acids include histidine, leucine, isoleucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, valine and tryptophan. Some other amino acids can be considered essential in times of illness or stress, such as arginine, which your body cannot produce in high enough quantities while fighting diseases like cancer.

What do amino acids do?

Individual amino acids have unique roles in the body. Each one plays a part in helping your body to perform and function. While many more amino acids and their operations are vital for health, here are a few ways these molecules work to keep you healthy. Amino acids such as phenylalanine are precursors to neurotransmitters such as dopamine and norepinephrine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps us to feel pleasure and plays a role in thinking and planning. Other neurotransmitters such as valine play a role in muscle growth and repair and the production of energy. Tryptophan is a well-known amino acid for supporting sleep. It’s also a precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which regulates mood, sleep and appetite. Histidine also helps regulate our sleep and wake cycles. It’s used to produce histamine, a neurotransmitter responsible for immune health, digestion and sexual function. Leucine helps your body synthesize protein to repair muscle. It also aids in blood sugar regulation, wound healing and growth hormone production. Isoleucine is similarly involved in muscle metabolism and is found in high amounts in muscle tissues.

Amino acids and your health

When considering taking amino acid supplements, it can be hard to know what to choose. An amino acid supplement that includes all essential amino acids typically is a good place to start. But if you’re looking to support specific areas of health, there are some specific amino acids to consider. Remember to always discuss taking new supplements with your healthcare provider.

Sleep support

If quantity and quality of sleep are a concern for you, tryptophan can be a helpful amino acid. As mentioned previously, it plays a part in supporting healthy neurotransmitter production, including serotonin which helps to regulate your sleep. Tryptophan is another popular amino acid taken for sleep support. You’ll also find it in some sleep combination formulas with histidine, which also plays a role in sleep and wake cycle regulation.

Mood support

For mood support, tryptophan may be helpful due to its role in supporting healthy serotonin production. Studies have shown that tryptophan supplementation can help support healthy mood. Tyrosine and its precursor phenylalanine are converted into the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine. When taken as a dietary supplement, these amino acids have been shown to support alertness and arousal.

Immune function

Amino acids – especially arginine, glutamine and cysteine precursors such as methionine – are essential for immune cells, as they provide instructions for healthy cell function. Without them, your T-cells cannot grow or activate. They also play a part in the production of antibodies, cytokines and other important substances.

Specialty diet support

Most people obtain enough essential amino acids from diet as long as enough protein is consumed. However, if you consume a diet low in protein, such as a plant-based diet, you may find amino acid supplementation to be a convenient way to boost your intake. Plant-based proteins can lack some of the essential amino acids, whereas animal protein contains all of the essential amino acids your body needs to function. To obtain all of these amino acids from plants, your diet must be carefully crafted to include a variety of beans, legumes, grains and other sources of amino acids. One way to top up your amino acid profile as a plant-based eater is to take a supplement. Those following the keto diet or intermittent fasting might also benefit from amino acid supplementation. When you’re following an extremely low carbohydrate diet (such as keto) or do not consume enough carbohydrates throughout the day, your body has limited glucose. When this happens, your body needs to rely on a different source to create energy. During ketogenesis, your body will use fatty acids and ketogenic amino acids to produce energy through ketone bodies. Put simply, consuming ketogenic amino acids such as leucine and lysine can help your body produce ketones and, therefore, energy. This energy is then used to power your body's organs, such as your brain, heart and muscles. If you’re on a very low carb, keto, or fasting diet, taking amino acids might help you feel more energetic.

The bottom line

Amino acids are critical for your body's functioning, and nine of them are necessary to obtain through diet or supplementation. Several amino acids have been shown to help mood and sleep regulation and support healthy immune function. Additionally, if you are on a special diet such as plant-based, keto, low carb or fasting, you may find amino acid supplementation increases your energy levels and helps you feel better. Choosing an essential amino acid supplement containing all nine essential amino acids or a branched-chain amino acid supplement can help ensure that you obtain all amino acids and their benefits.
