SECRET WEAPON® AMINO
Speeds Recovery | Promotes Anabolism
SECRET WEAPON® AMINO is a comprehensive performance Amino Acid formula containing 7g BCAA, 5g L-Glutamine and 3g Citrulline Malate. This formula is designed to support muscle and endurance during intense workout and speeds muscle recovery post training. Secret Weapon® Amino also promotes Anabolism when used with sensible high protein diet and intense training regimen. *
The Power of Secret Weapon® Amino
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and therefore, the building blocks of lean muscle. Secret Weapon® Amino contains THREE key amino acids that promotes muscle growth and boost performance.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) refer to three specific amino acids - Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine - that the body must obtain from either food or BCAA supplementation. BCAAs can be used by muscle cells as an energy source, which may help reduce muscle breakdown during exercise and help support recovery and repair after weight training. As a result, BCAAs are a popular and relevant supplement among those who exercise regularly*.
L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and plays an important role in muscle recovery and muscle protein development. L-Glutamine is effective at building muscle and preventing decrease in muscle mass during intense physical workout regimen typically during pre-contest preparation. During periods of intense physical activity be it from strength training or daily life, L-Glutamine levels can be depleted which may limit protein synthesis. L-Glutamine is very effective intestinal and immune system health compound, as these cells use glutamine as the preferred fuel source rather than glucose. *
3g Citrulline Malate
Citrulline Malate is commonly used to boost nitric oxide levels and used as a sports performance supplement. Citrulline Malate supplementation may help to delay fatigue and improved endurance during prolonged exercise. *
