Amino energy is an industry-leading product. It's a best-seller for a good reason. Amino Energy combines all 9 of the essential amino acids for optimised health and athletic performance, with a natural, balanced form of caffeine to really give you that extra edge to get yourself at your best. We truly believe every healthy person needs a little Amino Energy in their day no matter what your goals and lifestyle.
First up in Amino Energy is the Aminos! Amino acids are the simple compounds which combine to create a protein peptide - which is why they are often referred to as 'building blocks' of protein and muscle. Amino acids therefore fulfil the role of building muscle and repairing body structures, hence why they have such significant importance to the fitness industry - they're the nutrients of gains. The human body contains 20 amino acids - 11 non-essential, which your body naturally creates, and 9 essential amino acids, which your body requires from dietary intake. Amino Energy contains all 9 of these essential amino acids, in a high quality and effective dosage to optimise the availability of these key nutrients in your body. Thus, with Amino Energy on your side, you've got a peak supply of everyone to improve your recovery and help you build muscle mass, thus maximising your strength, power and athletic performance in every aspect.
Second is the caffeine. Amino Energy contributes caffeine content in the form of green coffee and green tea extract - two natural forms that leave you feeling light and energised with a clean and natural boost - completely crash and jitter free. This boost can be used for anytime and every-time you need it, to help you perform in every element. Whether you're firing away your incredible brain power at work and start to feel a little tired and sluggish, you're a bit slow to get started in the morning or you're enroute to the gym, Amino Energy will help to reboot that energy. This means you can say goodbye to the numerous coffees a day, the energy drinks and sports drinks stacked full of sugar - saving not only your health but your wallet too!

However, we do caution that you avoid consuming more than 300mg total in the workout and pre-workout combo.
