ON amino energy is a performance boosting supplement that provides energy that is needed to sustain long training hours. The benefits of this unique formulation are as follows:
- Great amino acid blend: Each serving (2 scoops, 9g) of ON Amino energy delivers 5g of amino acid blend, which consists of BCAA, glutamine, taurine and other essential amino acids. It works as the best fuel for the muscles. Each amino acid in this formula has a unique function to perform, which ultimately enhances the training performance. Recovery rate too increases immensely with this supplement. As a result, there is an overall increase in the training intensity without any concern about muscle soreness or stiffness. A steady source of amino acids that are micronized for the purpose of maximum absorption, helps repair the microscopic wear and tear of the muscles effectively. This also prevents muscle breakdown.
- Better blood circulation: ON Amino supplements contain L-citrulline and L-arginine that increase the nitric oxide levels in the blood. This dilates the blood vessels to promote more blood circulation. Better blood circulation leads to enhanced delivery of nutrients to the muscles and a higher supply of oxygen. More oxygen supply prevents lactic acid build up and hence causes reduced muscle soreness. Increased blood flow also helps the muscles to look fuller and much bigger.
- Maximum focus: While intense training, focus is essential to prevent injuries. Each serving (2 scoops, 9g) of this supplement provides 100mg caffeine, along with 50mg green tea extracts and 10 mg green coffee bean extract. All these ingredients are extremely effective for increasing attentiveness and focus, and hence ensure the best of the performance. Also, the natural extracts in this supplement boost metabolic functions, which further tend to raise the energy levels and endurance to withstand longer hours of training conveniently.
- Better muscle synthesis: Amino acids help trigger protein synthesis which is very important for new muscle fibers to develop. Therefore, ON Amino Energy brings more muscle gain in a shorter span of time. Amino acids are also easily absorbed by the muscles to prevent breakdown during or after long training hours. Consequently, it not only helps to build muscle faster but also supports muscle retention.
