Amino Action helps with muscle building and recovery while providing muscular energy, endurance and prevents dehydration. Amino Action contains essential branch chain amino acids and an electrolyte blend. Branch chain amino acids are known as the famous BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) These tough guys help prevent the breakdown of protein during a workout. Since these three special amino acids do not have to be taken to the liver to be converted into glucose for energy they are first inline along with lipids to be utilized after muscle and liver glucose storages are running low. So keeping branch chain amino acids elevated during physical activity will prevent the likelihood of metabolizing protein, help with recovery and actually increase your physical activity endurance. Electrolytes play a huge role in hydration and promoting proper body functioning. Having balanced electrolytes maintains proper water levels, blood viscosity, and smooth muscle contractions.
