AMINO ACIDS FOR MUSCLE RECOVERY AND PROTEIN SYNTHESIS
Amino Recover is a breakthrough product designed to use amino acids for muscle recovery and protein synthesis. There has been nearly 20 years of research conducted to arrive us at this very specific combination of amino acids in the most effective anabolic ratios. This formula is uniquely designed to support strength gain, function, and prevent muscle loss as a result of aging. Amino Recover offers you the right ratios to offer you the best results that essential amino acids have to offer.

Discussion The Amino Recover is a must have for building and maintaining strength. As an avid runner, weight lifter and cross-trained athlete, I am very active and need any edge I can to maintain strength. This amino acid formula has been studied by and developed by internationally recognized researchers in the field of muscle metabolism, anti-aging, and longevity. Seventeen years of research resulted in this particular blend of nine essential amino acids. This blend also includes but is not limited to branched chain amino acids such as leucine, isoleucine, valine, and arginine. They are proportioned in the most optimal ratios for muscle anabolism. Amino Recover is designed for both young and old who are seeking to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, quicken muscle recovery, and stimulate muscle strength and function.
Quality Over Quantity Data shows that protein synthesis in both the young and elderly is primarily driven through essential amino acids. Studies demonstrate there is no benefit to protein synthesis from adding nonessential amino acids to an essential amino acid supplement. To give you an example, the addition of 22 g of non-essential AAs to 18 g of EAA offered no additional benefit to net muscle balance when compared to the provision of 18 g of EAAs alone. In addition, 15 g of EAA with ratios similar to Amino Recover, offered twice the impact on muscle protein synthesis than an equal amount of high quality protein.
Essential Amino Acids’ Effect on Exercise Most people are familiar with taking EAAs post exercise; however the ingestion of EAAs prior to exercise increases delivery to the muscles in need. Research studies have demonstrated that exercise and amino acid intake has a positive effect on muscle protein synthesis. Branched chain amino acids have also improve post workout recovery time all while decreasing exercise induced muscle damage, promoting protein synthesis, and modulating exercise related cytokine production. For example, leucine enriched EAA supplementation extended the anabolic response and sensitivity of skeletal muscle to AAs. A study done by Borsheim et al says that over time, exercise will increase the beneficial effects of EAA supplementation on lean body mass, strength, muscle retention, and improve functional parameters of muscle.
Why Arginine? Under normal demand in a healthy individual, arginine can be sufficiently synthesized. When an individual experiences increased stress, the arginine levels may not be met. There is also strong evidence that arginine has an effect on muscle growth and protein synthesis. Though the mechanisms as to how are not fully identified, it is likely multifactorial. It is known that arginine converts to nitrous oxide, which relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow to muscles. One critical finding is that without arginine in the EAAs formula, plasma arginine decreases, potentially reducing the rate of protein synthesis.
Muscle Loss as a Result of Aging When people think of EAAs, most direct their minds towards sports and athletics. What nobody is telling you is that there is incredible evidence that supports EAAs for aging. In the fourth decade of life, there is a natural catabolic effect or breakdown of muscle as a result of metabolic changes combined with sedentary lifestyle. Studies using EAAs at doses of 6.7 to 45 g/d in advanced age, bed rest, and recovery from surgery have shown important benefits. The benefits demonstrated increase in protein synthesis, enhanced muscle strength, and improvements in functional parameters of studied muscles. EAAs have huge potential in preserving muscle function in the elderly. Non-essential amino acids are not as effective as EAAs when it comes to muscle anabolism and may be inadequate to maximize anabolic efficiency in the elderly. High amounts of leucine as found in Amino Recover is also an important factor that is required for optimal stimulation of protein synthesis in the elderly. There is also research supported evidence that the presence of carbohydrates in a nutrition a supplement is not beneficial for the elderly and may impair muscle anabolism. Amino Recover is a highly effective blend of EAAs with arginine that provides zero carbohydrates.
