A BCAA Product You Can Feel

  • Unbelievable Flavor
  • 10 Grams of BCAAs
  • 4 Grams of Citrulline
  • 3.2 Grams of Beta Alanine
  • 1.5 Grams of HICA

Cellucor COR-Performance β-BCAA features BCAAs, Beta Alanine, Citrulline and HICA which are proven to help athletes build muscle, sustain maximum output, and recover from intense training and sports activities.*

Beta Alanine is known for the ‘tingling’ sensation most users feel after consumption. Cellucor COR-Performance β-BCAA uses a clinically studied 3.2g dose of Beta Alanine to deliver maximum results and a great activation feeling that let’s you know the product is ‘kicking in.’*

The vast majority of Beta Alanine users report a slight tingling sensation after ingestion. If you don’t feel the ‘tingles’, don’t worry, the product is still hard at work to maximize your workout.*

Beta Alanine in a BCAA Product?

Most BCAA users are looking for that extra something, an edge to help them train harder, longer. Beta Alanine is an amino acid that has been shown to support muscular endurance and improve performance. Beta Alanine is an effective fatigue arrester that prevents lactic acid from accumulating too quickly in skeletal muscle (which occurs during training) allowing you to bring your best.*

Introducing HICA

Cellucor COR-Performance β-BCAA also features a clinically studied dose of HICA, a metabolite of the Branched Chain Amino Leucine, to support lean mass and strength gains. The clinically studied dose of HICA in Cellucor COR-Performance β-BCAA, when taken by weight training athletes, netted increases in muscle and decreased symptoms of training-induced muscle soreness, once again helping you to train harder and longer.*

COR-Performance Series

The Cellucor COR-Performance Series features premium, innovative formulas you expect from Cellucor in an all-new line up of commodity sports nutrition products. Featuring clinically dosed formulas and unmatched flavor systems, the COR-Performance series is designed to satisfy every customer: great formulas, great flavors and great prices.

Amino X Product Highlights

  • World’s First Effervescent Instantized Amino Acid Product
  • 10g of Micronized Anti-Catabolic Amino Acids per Serving!
  • 0g of Sugar per Serving
  • 500 Anabolic IUs of Vitamin D per Serving
  • Caffeine-Free – Can Be Used Anytime, Day or Night
  • Mixes Completely (No Clumping)

In addition to being a highly anabolic blend, AMINO X is the first instantized effervescent BCAA formula. By utilizing an effervescent delivery system along with instantized amino acids, BCAAs, EAAs, Vitamin D and Citrulline Malate are taken up more rapidly. Additionally, the effervescent form of Vitamin D may serve further anabolic functions, while Citrulline Malate helps to support nitric oxide production, aiding users in maximizing their full anabolic potential.*

Stack with Nitrix, N.O.-Xplode, Syntha-6 and TrueMass for maximum physique and performance impact.

Amino X Ingredients when combined with regular exercise are designed to support:

  • Protein synthesis/Anabolism*
  • Glycogen Resynthesis*
  • Anti-Catabolism/Muscle Sparing*
  • Recovery from Training Sessions*
  • Muscular Endurance*
  • Resistance to Muscular Fatigue*

What Puts Amino X Above the Competition?

BCAAs

Branched-chain amino acids are three specific amino acids – leucine, isoleucine and valine – that are part of the nine essential amino acids. An interesting aspect of BCAAs is that they are metabolized in the muscle tissue, not the liver. For this reason, BCAAs lend themselves readily to help support muscle recovery as well as offsetting muscle breakdown. Most notably, leucine has many novel anabolic properties. Along with stimulating muscle protein synthesis, leucine may also activate the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), which is responsible for regulating cell growth.*

EAAs

In addition to delivering the all-important BCAAs, Amino X also contains the essential amino acids L-Taurine, L-Citrulline and L-Alanine. The amino acid citrulline is known for its promotion of nitric oxide production, while taurine promotes the uptake of nutrients into the muscle cells and alanine is known to convert to pyruvate in the body which may help aid in the production of glucose during intense training.*

Effersorb Technology

To further amplify the blend, Amino X is an effervescent formula. The use of an effervescent delivery system in this instantized formula allows nutrients to be absorbed rapidly and completely – not to mention the convenience of never having to deal with clumping during mixing.*

Caffeine and Sugar Free

With zero calories and zero grams of sugar, this non-caffeinated, instantized amino acid formula is an ideal recovery support agent that can be used anytime, day or night.*

Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder Highlights:

  • First Ever Instantized Formula
  • Mixes Easily with a Spoon
  • Leucine, Isoleucine, & Valine in 2:1:1 Ratio
  • Unflavored Versatility

Each serving of Optimum Nutrition Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder provides a 5,000mg (5g) blend of the three Branched Chain Amino Acids (L-Valine, L-Leucine, and L-Isoleucine) in every serving. The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), so named because of their branched chemical structure, are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds. The method to produce ON Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder yields a powder that mixes readily in water or juice and does not readily clump or settle to the bottom. As a result, the difficulty in mixing you may have experienced with other BCAA powders is greatly reduced.
