Amino IV delivers BCAAs, EAAs, electrolytes, and taurine. Since 2013 we have understood the importance of consuming EAAs alongside BCAAs, and through our careful processes have designed the flavors to be extremely refreshing and thirst quenching. Amino IV is most often used during training sessions, whether it be as a source of electrolytes, or a way to stay hydrated in place of a typical carbohydrate-loaded sports drink.
Each serving of Amino IV contains 5g of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), the amount typically found in a 25g serving of protein.
Since 2013, Amino IV has always been formulated with essential amino acids (EAAs), the amino acids that your body cannot produce and must be consumed through your diet.
Each serving is packed with premium electrolytes, so you can reach for Amino IV during those sweat-filled training sessions to replenish key minerals.
Why take BCAAs and EAAs?
There are 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) that our bodies do not produce, so we must get them through our diet. If you are consuming enough protein every day then you are getting a good supply of EAAs. If you aren't good about eating/drinking protein, every day, then you should probably add in Amino IV. Those who are weight training, endurance training, or any other activity that causes a high use of skeletal muscle will have a higher demand for EAAs to help repair the muscle tissue.
Three of the EAAs are known as branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), and it is these three that have the most activity in signaling the process of muscle protein synthesis in the body. Since 2013 we have known to combine BCAA's with all the other EAAs, as the body must have saturation levels of specific EAAs in order for the BCAAs to have the greatest impact. Yeah, it is a mouthful, but you can trust in us to know how to formulate from science. Amino IV's got it all.
Amino acids are also burned as fuel in the body, similarly to carbohydrates. Since most of our customers consume a post-workout Select Protein shake that delivers a surge of amino acids, we recommend consuming Amino IV during your workout, similar to how you'd enjoy a sports drink when training.
