Essential aminos are those aminos that your body can't make... You can only get them through your diet. Essential aminos are important for a couple of reasons. First, your body can take them and turn them into other non-essential aminos as needed. Second, many of the essential amino acids can be used to make energy (useful during dieting) when needed. Third, you can maintain a net nitrogen balance on essential aminos only-you don't non-essential aminos to get into an anabolic state. Fourth, the essential aminos found in Animal Nitro come in the form of uncoupled aminos. They are free of chemical bonds and they do not need to be digested. Therefore, they can be rapidly assimilated, bypass the liver, and enter systemic circulation quickly and efficiently. When essential aminos come in "uncoupled" forms, they can also exert pharmacological and physiological effects that plain protein powders can't. Fifth, Animal Nitro contains a specific, proven ratio of amino acids. We just don't throw them in there. They come in a precise formula that has been modeled after actual human muscle protein itself. No other amino formula has this blend of aminos that we call Human Muscle Protein Complex(tm) (see below). Finally, research has recently shown that non-essential amino acids are not required for boosting anabolism via protein synthesis. Only essential aminos are necessary. So yeah, essential amino acids are just that important.
Whether you're dieting, bulking or maintaining, Animal Nitro can help. For dieters, Animal Nitro can help keep energy levels up as some of the aminos in Nitro have the ability to be oxidized (used to energy). The aminos in Animal Nitro can also exert anti-catabolic effects, helping to preserve lean mass during calorie-restriction. Gainers can also use Animal Nitro. With Animal Nitro, they can get key aminos delivered fast without all the extra calories. And Animal Nitro won't leave you feeling full or bloated.
Absolutely. Each pack contains approximately 4600mg of BCAAs. One interesting thing about Human Muscle Protein Complex(tm)... As you know, we modeled it after actual human muscle protein. As it turns out, human muscle protein has roughly a 2:1:1 ratio of leucine:isoleucine:valine. A wealth of studies have been performed on the benefits of BCAAs specifically and guess what? The important published studies used the same 2:1:1 ratio of BCAAs as found in human muscle protein. Coincidence? We don't think so. Matching the amino protein profile of an amino supplement to human muscle will yield the best results according to research. Animal Nitro also contains the proven 2:1:1 ratios of leucine:isoleucine:valine. How's that for cool?
