During exercise, and especially high-intensity training, glucose and glycogen are broken down for energy. In the process, hydrogen ions (H+) are also produced within the muscles. H+ accumulation causes the muscles to become more acidic and ultimately leads to fatigue. Packed with Beta-Alanine, Histidine, and Phosphates, ON’s Beta-Alanine Powder is designed to help boost your intramuscular buffering system so that you can train harder, longer.*

One scoop of ON’s Beta-Alanine Powder provides 1.6 grams of pure Beta-Alanine. Stack the unflavored version with shakes and other powders to get you closer to your daily total, or mix up the flavored version in cold water. Getting about 3 grams a day should be your goal for training performance.

Amino acids are essential to the human body. Athletes and bodybuilders can particularly benefit from supplementing amino acids because they assist in repair, growth, and development of muscle tissue. The body, through assimilation of amino acids, produces over 50,000 proteins and over 15,000 enzymes. Amino acids are not only responsible for the production of all the body’s enzymes (including digestive enzymes), but they also play a primary role in normalizing moods, concentration, aggression, attention, sleep, and sex drive. After protein is consumed, it is broken down into amino acids. Then, individual amino acids are used to create necessary body proteins and enzymes. Digestive enzymes break down the proteins a person consumes into amino acids.*

Scientists, experts, and medical professionals agree that getting enough amino acids in one’s diet is a significant factor in maintaining good nutrition. Each two tablet serving of Superior Amino 2222 Tabs offers 2,222 milligrams of high quality amino acids including the eight essentials. Superior Amino 2222 Tabs are easier to swallow than most tablets and are quickly digested and absorbed. Used in conjunction with a well-planned diet that includes ‘complete’ proteins, these tablets can play a role in supporting muscle recovery from exercise. Because we used micronized aminos, they can get into your system that much quicker.*

Optimum Nutrition’s BCAA 1000 capsules contain a powerful balance of Branched Chain Amino Acids which are the building blocks of muscle mass and size. Metabolized directly in the muscle, BCAAs may improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acid groups for repair and rebuilding. The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s), so named because of their unique branched chemical structure, are necessary in that the body cannot make them from other compounds. In recent times, these amino acids have been researched for their possible anticatabolic (preventing muscle breakdown) and anabolic (muscle building) effects.
