Make Every Workout Count
Your muscles take a lot of abuse during intense strength training, and that muscle damage is beneficial in the long run, but it thrusts your body into a state of protein breakdown, otherwise known as catabolism.
Amino Acid 5000 was specifically formulated to deliver highly bioavailable Free Form Amino Acids to halt catabolism in its tracks and promote protein synthesis with the help of advanced insulin-mimicking properties that speed the delivery of vital amino acids into your muscle cells.
Amino Acid 5000 provides Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) and Essential Amino Acids (EAA) that protect your muscle cells during workouts and aid in recovery after intense training sessions, making it ideal for before, during, and after your workouts.
Strength coaches around the world recommend taking these specific fast-acting amino acids during training to fight fatigue, improve recovery, and maximize performance.
Enhanced Muscle Recovery
Amino Acid 5000 delivers a BCAA ratio of 3:1:1 as well as EAAs in a high-potency 5000-mg dosage (per 5 tablets). Vitamins B1 (Thiamine), B3 (Niacin), and B12 plus Magnesium Citrate, Calcium Carbonate, and Zinc Gluconate help to support nutrient uptake and improve bioavailability.
Harness the Power of Insulin Mimicking
The Glucose Disposal Nutrient Partitioning Complex in Amino Acid 5000 harnesses the power of insulin by optimizing your body’s response to this naturally produced physique-changing hormone, resulting in a healthier, leaner, and more muscular physique.
This insulin-mimicking nutrient complex contains Banaba Leaf Extract and Decaffeinated Green Coffee Bean Extract to ensure carbohydrates are stored as muscle glycogen rather than fat, helping to fuel hard-working muscles more efficiently.
Banaba Leaf Extract (AKA Corosolic acid) is a triterpenoid that’s been shown in studies to help support and maintain healthy blood sugar levels by stimulating glucose uptake. Japanese research shows this natural plant extract safely mimics insulin, can be taken orally and has no adverse effects.
Q: I’ve been trying to have a protein drink right before and after training, but it’s tough to train with a full stomach. Plus, I know how important protein is right after training, but my appetite is so low that I have to force myself to have a shake. Can this take the place of a shake?
A: Amino Acid 5000 has a great array of essential and non-essential amino acids along with other beneficial nutrients and our Glucose Disposal Nutrient Partitioning Matrix. You won’t get the same amount of protein as you would in a shake, but this formula boosts nutrient uptake and has insulin-mimicking effects, so it’s perfect for pre- and post-workout. Then you can have a protein shake or meal once you have your appetite back to maximize the post-training nutrient-intake window.*
Q: I eat a lot of fruit, but I’ve never heard of any reason to use banana leafs, and I can’t find any info online about benefits of them. Do you have any links showing why it’s helpful?
A: That’s actually a common mistake if you read the label quickly… It’s actually Banaba leaf, not “banana.” Banaba Leaf Extract is part of our insulin-mimicking complex (along with Green Coffee Bean Extract). It stimulates glucose uptake to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, so it has a nutrient-partitioning effect, helping to make sure carbs are stored as muscle glycogen rather than fat.*
Q: I’m on a strict diet while getting ready for a photo shoot, so I have to watch calories, but I don’t want to risk losing any muscle. Will these have a negative effect on my calorie intake?
A: We understand that struggle, but you don’t have to worry with Amino Acid 5000, and it sounds like the perfect solution for your needs. With 5 grams of amino acids per 5-tablet serving, calories wouldn’t be a concern. Plus, the combination of branched-chain and essential amino acids taken before and after training will ensure that you’re protecting yourself from any muscle wasting.*
