I love branch chain amino acid (BCAA) supplements. When taken in the right amounts at the right times, they can help you build muscle, lose fat, and give you more energy during your workout. That’s why I’ve used them before and after my workouts for years.
With all of these benefits I’m always on the lookout for a new and hopefully better BCAA supplement. I recently found a new product by BSN called Amino X that looks like it fits the bill. If you are like me and work out intensely 3-5 days a week I think it could be for you too.
Key Ingredients In Amino X
- BCAAs – Give you more energy for your workout, fuel muscle growth, and help you lose fat faster.
- Citruline – Study’s show it increases your endurance so you can workout harder, longer.
- L-Alanine – Enables your body and muscles to have more energy during exercise.
- L-Arginine – Ensures the pumps you get post-workout last longer .
- Taurine – Can help you build muscle, and help your muscles recover faster post-workout.
- Vitamin D – Studies show that higher blood levels help you perform better physically.
Drinking Amino X also means that you’ll never again have to deal with the inconvenience of having most of your drink stuck to the bottom of your glass. That’s because Amino X comes in a micronized, effervescent powder. This means it mixes easily in water and stays completely dissolved. I think this is awesome. That’s because more amino acid powders are difficult to mix and leave most of the powder stuck to your glass.
Who Should Drink Amino X?
This is a great pre and post-workout supplement for anyone who works out intensely several days a week. When I write work out intensely I mean to say that you lift weights, sprint hills, train with kettlebells, or something similar.
If you are an endurance athlete that bikes, runs, swims, etc. for an hour or more each workout you’re better off with a carb-based supplement like Cytosport Cytomax.
When Should You Take Amino X?
Since it doesn’t contain caffeine or other stimulants, amino x is safe to drink at any time of the day. It’s especially great as a pre and post-workout drink given all of its potential muscle building and performance enhancing benefits. You can also drink it between meals when you crave a refreshing drink.
What Flavors Does Amino X Come In?
You can get Amino X in blue raspberry, fruit punch, green apple, and watermelon.
