Plant-Aminos are a favourite of ours. Not only do we love the fresh and natural tropical flavour of these guys, but the versatility and performance benefits are indisputable too! MacroMike have made a comprehensive blend with Plant Aminos to cover every base and give your body absolutely every amino acid it could possibly need to function, repair and rebuild at its very best. As always with MacroMike, authenticity is never compromised - and you can expect everything just as natural, gut-friendly, clinically baked and body-friendly as ever!
- Optimises muscular recovery time for a faster and better recovery for even the hardest of training sessions - Light and sweet tropical flavour that we love to drink, and find helps to boost satiety throughout the day - Supports optimised health and digestive function - 100% natural and vegan-friendly!
The formulation of Plant-Aminos certainly places it as a cut above - this is not 'just another amino acid supplement'. MacroMike have instead created here an all-inclusive supplement that can . What's inside is what's most impressive, so let's dive straight in to telling you more about that!
The first and most obvious inclusion in Plant Aminos is amino acids! But not just any amino acids - instead you MacroMike have included a comprehensive list. First off is the 3 BCAA's, often know as the pinnacle amino acids for boosting muscular recovery since these essential amino acids are the ones that actually reside within skeletal muscle. Next comes the complete range of essential amino acids (EAA's) - the key building blocks that your body depends on dietary intake for. We find this part particularly important- as most plant-based diets tend to lack one or more of these amino acids so it is important for those gaps to be filled - and ensure your overall wellness and function is as good as it possibly can be. You get a bonus inclusion of non-essentially amino acids - like glutamine, taurine and Tryptophan that also play a role in boosting gut health, mood and healthy hormone control! Together, the complex and total inclusion of so many amino acids helps to maximise your performance, function and recovery.
Next up is two key ingredients that play an important effect on pumps and performance - L-Citriline and AAKG. These two are pretty common ingredients in most pre-workouts (after all, they're extremely proven in their benefits!), but within Plant Aminos, they are exclusively natural and plant-based. Therefore, you can trust the source and its purity. Both are effective in reducing fatigue and improving muscular stamina during training, whilst also increasing nitric oxide levels and blood flow to muscles during exercise and to help deliver the ingredients needed by the body to make proteins for optimal repair and recovery. This just goes to show that Plant Aminos really a little different and a little better than the norm - with use and benefits even in workout performance too!
Finally, within Plant Aminos you get a 'dream team' of B vitamins with diverse roles as antioxidants, assistants in digestion of food, energy production and optimal neurological function. The added dose of vitamin C will promote a healthy immune system and keep you fighting fit which is key whilst training intensely.
What's in it?
Taurine is a powerful non-essential amino acids which may act as a natural antioxidant and anti0-inflammatory in the body. When exercising intensely we actively break down muscle cells and tissues, this l-taurine may assist the repair and recovery process. L-taurine may also eliminate harmful oxidants and toxins, helping to increase the production and activity of other antioxidants found in the body. L-taurine is a must when implementing a strenuous workout regime.
Pumps & Performance
Packed with watermelon derived l-citruline and AAKG (arginine alpha-ketoglutarate). Both may be effective in reducing fatigue and improving endurance for both aerobic and anaerobic exercise. When partnered they work to increase nitric oxide levels and blood flow to muscles during exercise and to help deliver the ingredients needed by the body to make proteins for optimal repair and recovery.
We’ve included optimal doses of the 3 juggernaut BCAA’s along with all of the EAA’s and some great non-essential aminos to help optimise performance, energy production, tissue growth and repair. As advocates for gut health we’ve also included glutamine which works in unison with tryptophan, methionine and the 3 BCAA’s to maintain a thriving gut and healthy immune system. Tryptophan can also boost serotonin which is responsible for sleep, mood, and behaviour.
Natural Caffeine Blend
Don’t think natural stimulants can work as well? We challenge you to give this a try (and do some research).
Caffeine levels in these powerful natural stimulants are not to be scoffed at. They all derive from plants which produce naturally occurring caffeine and due to their natural form they also carry other beneficial nutrients and antioxidants.
