BIG DOG’s MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™
BIG DOG’s MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD ™ is a premium essential amino acid blend, containing all nine essential amino acids, including Lysine, Threonine, Phenylalanine, Methionine, Histidine, Tryptophan, the branched-chain amino acids Leucine, Valine and Isoleucine, plus an ample amount of the conditionally-essential amino acid Glutamine. These nine essential amino acids are the most vital group among all 20 amino acids, as they can not be manufactured by the body and must be obtained from food or supplements. From these nine essential amino acids, all other amino acids can in turn be synthesized within the body; each of the 50 000 + proteins created and utilized within our body is a result of a combination of these 20 amino acids.
Glutamine, making up 60 % of skeletal muscle, and being used far more than any other amino acid, can under normal conditions be sufficiently manufactured by our body, but strenuous work-outs can deplete its levels so fast that consuming extra L-Glutamine becomes necessary to minimize muscle break-down and improve protein metabolism.
The three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine are the most well-known essential amino acids (EAAs); they make up approximately 35 % of muscle protein and thus definitely belong to the key nutrients required to make progress in the gym. Supplementing with free-from BCAAs will provide muscle sparing anti-catabolic support, supply the necessary nutrients to delay fatigue and promote energy production, especially when taken before and during workouts. As BCAAs bypass the liver and gut tissue and directly enter the blood stream, they quickly elevate circulating BCAA levels and serve as a good source of fuel for work-outs.
However, BCAAs do not work independently from other amino acids to build muscle. BCAAs merely begin the process of protein synthesis, but do not offer the full complement of building blocks needed to promote elevated muscle protein synthesis and repair; all the other six EAAs need to be present, along with Glutamine, to complete this process. The adequate availability of ALL essential amino acids is an indispensable factor for accelerated muscle growth.
Without a well-balanced profile of ALL nine essential amino acids, including the BCAAs, plus Glutamine, it is simply not possible to optimally enhance muscle gain, recovery, athletic performance and alleviate muscle soreness. Research has proven that a full spectrum EAA blend like MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™ promotes protein synthesis better than BCAAs alone; due to its wider amino acid profile, it simply covers more bases.
KEY BENEFITS OF BIG DOG’s MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™
While each and every one of the nine essential amino acids has its unique individual benefits related to promoting better health, muscle protein synthesis and performance, lets have a look at what these EAAs can do in synergy, when supplied in an optimally designed well-balanced blend, such as MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™ :
- helps the body grow and repair muscle faster by improving and regulating protein synthesis in muscle;
- increases body fat reduction, when compared to supplementing with a whey protein shake;
- produces significantly greater strength gains as compared to using whey protein;
- prevents muscle break down and jump starts protein synthesis in muscles, when taken shortly before exercise;
- decreases muscle fatigue in glycogen-depleted athletes, supporting exercise endurance;
- improves post work-out muscle recovery and shortens recovery time;
- provides more energy while dieting;
- offers a perfect alternative to athletes, who may have problems tolerating whey protein.
Science has clearly proven the numerous benefits of supplementing with a premium EAA blend, and MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™ is definitely one of the best choices due to providing all essential amino acids in a scientifically-proven potent balance. Supplying 4.7 g of BCAAs in their optimum 2:1:1 ratio, accompanied by ample amounts of all six remaining essential amino acids, plus 3 g of Glutamine, with each serving, makes MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™ your best bet to optimize your athletic performance, recovery, and overall health.
As MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™ does not contain any calories, it is also the ideal supplement for athletes, who strive to lose excess fat and want to maintain muscle tissue during times of minimizing their total calorie and carbohydrate intake; supplementing with essential amino acids prevents muscle catabolism and gives more energy while dieting.
MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™ is also most beneficial to athletes, who regularly train on an empty stomach, or if there should not be sufficient time for a post-work-out meal.
The best times to consume MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™ are before or during work-outs, or in between meals. Supplementing with EAAs before and during exercise improves performance; consuming it between meals can help prevent muscle loss.
MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™ is currently available in delicious Citrus Twist flavor; further amazing flavors, including Watermelon, Grape, and Orange are coming soon. Preparing MUSCE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™ to treat yourself to a powerful refreshing and tasty amino boost is easy; just mix one level scoop ( 15 mg) with 16 to 24 ounces of cool water and enjoy; you will promptly experience the astounding full impact of MUSCLE AMINO IMPACT GOLD™.
Last, but not least, please note that EAA blends are not an equal replacement for whey protein. A high quality EAA blend and a high quality whey protein don’t compete with each other, but rather enhance and complement each other’s benefits when taken together.
