Amino Acid products are fast becoming one of the most intrinsic products in everyone’s pantry, with more people from all types of activities recognising the importance of these supplements in their lifestyle. The latest offering is Chronicle Nutrition’s Prime Amino.

Chronicle Nutrition’s mandate centres on the concept of clinical dosing, and they have stacked up once again, ensuring that each serving gives you the results you need. With the most effective amounts of each ingredient, Prime Amino not only encourages muscular development and protein synthesis but also prevents muscle catabolism, stopping you from wasting nutrients and energy trying to rebuild old muscle.



Prime Amino contains a full 16g amino acid spectrum, 6g of which are BCAA’s in a 2:1:1 ratio, scientifically shown to be one of the most effective ratios. This ratio being divided between 3g leucine, 1.5g isoleucine, and 1.5g valine, the dosage of BCAA’s, combined with other amino acids such as glutamine, beta-alanine, citrulline, and taurine, you will be able to train harder, for longer, and recover much more effectively.

Leucine is noted as the most integral amino acid in protein synthesis, if isoleucine or valine are not present in the mixture, then leucine is severely inhibited, and might not even work at all. This same concept has also been noted in the absence of glutamine with regards to BCAA’s, if glutamine is not present in a BCAA mixture, it is not absorbed as effectively, if at all.


One of the biggest issues in building new muscle is trying to retain as much muscle that you currently have, and not that breakdown. There really is no point in losing some muscle mass due to intense cardio or weight training, then trying to rebuild that and then build new muscle. Prime Amino will stop the catabolism of your current muscle mass, by feeding the body with amino acids which then encourages protein synthesis, and will eliminate the need for your body to tap into current muscle mass for energy.


Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of energy, but where does it turn to when there are no carbohydrates available? The body turns to amino acids, and it usually does this by breaking down muscle mass. Despite not having any carbohydrates or stimulants such as caffeine, it will provide the body with energy, due to the intake of amino acids, and because of the lack of stimulants, you can sip on it throughout the day for some extra energy.


Muscle hydration during intense exercise is one thing that is severely overlooked, with some people just not drinking enough water, but sometimes this just isn’t enough. Prime Amino has a unique hydration and electrolyte matrix that will ensure that your muscles are sufficiently hydrated.

Electrolytes are lost through sweat throughout the day, but mainly during intense exercise, and by replenishing lost electrolytes, the muscle is protected from cramps, and fatigue.


Chronicle Nutrition Prime Amino is available in 4 different flavours. These include Blackcurrant, Blue Raspberry, Orange Naartjie, and Pineapple, all of which taste incredible and will leave you drooling for the next sip.


Chronicle Nutrition Prime Amino retails for just R359.00 for 600g. Each 600g tub provides 60 x 10g servings or 30 x 20g servings, depending on your individual needs. A 20g serving will cost you R11.96, while a 10g serving will cost R5.98. The serving suggestion recommended for individuals under 90 kg is just one single serving (10g), whereas individuals over 90 kg would benefit from a double serving (20g).
