All Goals, All Day, All9™ Amino

All Goals, All Day, All9™ Amino

Every person has a different set of goals that they want to achieve each day. These goals might be as small as taking the stairs instead of the elevator to lose weight or pushing yourself for those extra five minutes during a training session to gain muscle mass. Irrespective of what your goals might be, your body needs protein—specifically amino acids—to perform various physiological functions. 

Back to the basics: what are amino acids?

Also referred to as the building blocks of life, amino acids are the molecules that combine to create proteins. These molecules consist of 20 organic compounds that are categorised according to non-essential or essential amino acids. Non-essential amino acids are produced by the body and do not have to be added to your diet, while essential amino acids (EAA) cannot be produced by the body and must therefore be added to your diet. Of the 20 amino acids that the body needs to function properly, 11 are recognised as non-essential and nine as essential. Three of the nine essential amino acids are branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs).

More about branched-chain amino acids

Thanks to the unique chemical structure of branched-chain amino acids, they are metabolised directly in the muscles and not in the liver, resulting in quicker recovery and increased energy. 

Branched-chain amino acids consist of three essential amino acids known as leucine, isoleucine and valine.

Leucine

This branched-chain amino acid is important for protein synthesis. Leucine is also known to improve brain activity and helps to prevent muscle breakdown and muscle recovery.

Isoleucine

The body uses isoleucine to regulate blood sugar levels. Isoleucine is known to increase insulin excretion, helping the muscles take in more sugar from blood, ultimately decreasing blood sugar levels.

Valine

This branched-chain amino acid produces energy and helps to restore tissues and cells, supports the nitrogen balance of the muscles, and stimulates the growth and recovery of muscles. Valine is also involved in energy production.

Why add essential amino acids to your diet?

Even though amino acids might be a popular term in the fitness world, the benefits of these organic compounds are not restricted to individuals who exercise. From a fitness point of view, amino acids can help to repair damaged muscle and build new muscle, while from a health and wellness perspective, amino acids can help to regulate the immune system, assist with calcium absorption, encourage skin elasticity, and assist with the synthesis of neurotransmitters and hormones.

All9™ Amino, the full spectrum of BCAAs and EAAs

All9™ Amino is the ultimate sugar-free stamina, hydration and lean muscle recovery supplement with a 2:1:1 ratio of 5 g naturally fermented branched-chain amino acids and additional essential amino acids. All9™ Amino contains coconut water powder and electrolytes for hydration and nerve function, as well as glutamine and taurine to enhance physical performance. The perfect ratio of ingredients helps to increase strength, improve hydration, provide more stamina, and recover faster.

What do the perfect ratio of ingredients do?

  • L-glutamine prevents muscle soreness and aids with recovery.
  • Electrolytes and coconut water powder hydrates the muscle and prevents cramping.
  • AstraGin® allows for faster absorption of nutrients in the body and helps the body convert nutrients to energy faster.
  • Taurine stimulates the metabolism, as it helps the liver to create bile salts that break down fatty acids in the intestines. Taurine also encourages the muscles to function properly and helps to protect the muscles against damage.

Who can use All9™ Amino?

All9™ Amino is not limited to a specific demographic. Whether you are striving to improve your general health and wellbeing, push your body to its limits with endurance training, improve your performance as a sport athlete, or grow muscle mass, you can achieve all goals, all day, with All9™.
