Energy-based amino acid products are becoming more and more popular with leading South African supplement brands. The latest amino energy product to be released is Chronicle Nutrition’s Amino NRG.
Like the rest of Chronicle Nutrition’s products, Amino NRG contains the clinically researched efficacious doses of each ingredient in order to elicit optimal results. Not just that, Amino NRG contains ingredients to prevent muscle catabolism and to assist muscular energy, fat loss and mental focus. It also contains an electrolyte hydration matrix to help prevent cramping during intense exercise.
In order to build muscle, it is imperative that you keep your body in an anabolic state as far as possible. Unfortunately, exercise (especially long bouts of cardio) is a catabolic process where fat, muscle and other tissue is broken down to provide the body with energy. Amino NRG inhibits the breakdown of muscle tissue by feeding the body with the necessary amino acids thereby stimulating protein synthesis. When Amino NRG is consumed during extended bouts of cardio, and other exercise, you will be able to protect your muscle mass but will still be able to lose body fat.
To give you an extra kick, Chronicle Nutrition have added a blend of Green Tea Extract and Caffeine to Amino NRG. Not only do these ingredients help to increase energy levels and endurance so that you can easily power through extended bouts of exercise, but they also help to keep you mentally focussed on the task at hand so that you can give it your all.
The BCAA combo along with the caffeine and green tea also make a powerful fat burning blend. Caffeine and Green Tea Extract work to increase metabolic rate
The 2:1:1 ratio of BCAAs has been proven to be one of the most effective doses when it comes to their muscle building effects. Not only is the ratio optimal but with 3g of leucine, 1.5g of isoleucine and 1.5g of valine so is the dosage. I mean, would you expect anything less from the guys at Chronicle Nutrition?
While leucine is known for its ability to bolster protein synthesis, if it is not combined in a 2:1:1 or 3:1:1 ratio with isoleucine and valine, its muscle building effects may be inhibited.
Amino NRG also contains a blend of electrolytes in order to ensure that your muscles are adequately hydrated. Replenishing electrolytes is imperative during extended exercise sessions as they are lost through sweat. By making sure that you are continually replenishing these lost nutrients, you will be able to ward off possible muscle cramps and ensure optimal muscle contraction.
AMINO NRG is a stimulant-based, amino acid complex formula designed to support high intensity, endurance training as well as muscle recovery. AMINO NRG features 13 different amino acids including Green Tea Extract and Caffeine combined with 3 grams of BCAA’s to help fuel your muscles during workouts. AMINO NRG also contains an Electrolyte and Hydration Matrix to help prevent cramping during races and intense training sessions.
Amino NRG is currently available in 3 flavours. These include Pineapple, Blue Raspberry and Black Currant, all of which taste really great and are an absolute pleasure to sip on during exercise.
Chronicle Nutrition Amino NRG retails for just R359.00. Depending on how you take it, you can either get 30x 20g servings or 60x 10g servings. For a 20g serving it will cost you R11.96 per serving while a 10g serving will cost R5.98. For individuals over 75kgs, I would suggest using a 20g dose and for those under 75kgs, a 10g single dose should be sufficient.
Amino NRG is ideal for those early morning fasted cardio sessions as it will help to protect muscle, give you an energy boost and assist with fat loss. That being said, it can also be used during training sessions at any time of day and even during the day when you are not able to eat a meal.
With a great taste and a good price, it is definitely a supplement worth giving a go!
