4 Compelling Reasons You Should Take Amino Acids if You Want to Get the Best Possible Results from Your Training
So you’re putting in all this hard work to get in shape and get more toned… of course you want to get the fastest possible results, right???? I mean, what woman in their right mind would want to take a year to get the same results they could get in 6-8 months?
There are many supplements available on the market today that can help you achieve faster results from your training, and AMINO ACIDS are one of them. That’s why pretty much every serious athlete on the planet takes them!
WHAT ARE AMINO ACIDS?
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins that play many critical roles in your body. When you eat protein, it’s broken down into amino acids, which are then used to help your body with various processes such as building muscle, regulating immune function, and synthesizing hormones and neurotransmitters. They are also crucial in boosting athletic performance or improving mood.
Your body needs 20 different amino acids to grow and function properly. Though all 20 of these are important for your health, only nine amino acids are classified as essential. These are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine.
Unlike nonessential amino acids, essential amino acids can’t be made by your body and must be obtained through your diet. The best sources of essential amino acids are animal proteins like meat, eggs and poultry.
4 PROVEN BENEFITS OF AMINO ACID SUPPLEMENTS
BENEFIT 1: INCREASE MUSCLE GROWTH
Amino Acids are proven to significantly increase muscle protein synthesis. And when your muscles grow faster, you will get toned faster and increase your resting metabolic rate (the calories burned while at rest).
BENEFIT 2: DECREASE MUSCLE SORENESS
By reducing soreness, you will be able to get back into the gym sooner and crush your workouts! The faster you recover, the hard you can train and the faster you will get results.
BENEFIT 3: REDUCE EXERCISE FATIGUE
When you exercise, your muscles use up amino acids causing their levels in your blood to decrease. When amino acid levels in your blood decrease, levels of the amino acid tryptophan increase in your brain, triggering fatigue. By supplementing with amino acids before and during workouts, you reduce tryptophan related fatigue and are able to train harder and longer.
BENEFIT 4: PREVENT MUSCLE WASTING
Muscle proteins are constantly being broken down and synthesized. Muscle wasting or breakdown occurs when muscle protein breakdown exceeds muscle protein synthesis. By supplementing with amino acids, you help prevent the breakdown of muscle proteins and aid in the synthesis of muscle proteins, shifting the balance away from muscle wasting an in favor of muscle synthesis.
NOT ALL AMINO ACID SUPPLEMENTS ARE CREATED EQUAL
In order to receive all of the benefits listed above, you need to find an Amino Acid supplement that contains a balanced proportion of ALL 20 Amino Acids, because without all 20, protein synthesis is not optimized.
