Optimum Nutrition's AMINO ENERGY is an Essential Amino acid supplement, with stimulant in form of Caffeine, which improves energy and focus, gives muscle pump and aids muscle building.
- Glutamine prevents muscle catabolism, boosts immune system and enhances glycogen storage in muscles.
- BCAA's are an integral part of muscle building process. They are anti-catabolic as well as anabolic in nature, which help initiate muscle synthesis and aid in strength and recovery.
- Beta-alanine helps improve power and strength ultimately aiding muscle building.
- L-arginine is a conditionally amino acid, which needs to be supplemented while exerting heavy or poor in nutrition. Arginine is the only precursor of nitric oxide and a vital precursor of creatine.
- Supplementing with arginine results in vasodilation (dilation of nerves) therefore increases uptake of oxygen and other nutrients during exercising. Hence giving a muscle pump
Before and/or during endurance exercise or within 30 to 45 minutes after weight training
