This has to be hands down my Favourite Supplement. Intra and post-workout, sugar and stimulant-free and, of course, fantastic flavour!

This beauty contains a superb amino blend of Beta-Alanine, Glutamine, and Taurine, to name a few. Most importantly, Chronicle prides itself on using only the best quality ingredients, thereby ensuring PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE products.

Prime Amino contains the most effective and scientifically proven amino ratio of 2:1:1. Now, many of us have thrown this ratio around in conversation, but do we really know what it means?

Let’s think of it as a ‘chain’, which consists of 3 links. The amino’s, namely Leucine, Iso-leucine, and Valine are linked through carbon bonds that chain together, and break off into branches, hence ‘branched-chain amino acids’. The 2:1: 1 ration refer to the fact that there is two-parts Leucine to one-part Iso-leucine and Valine.

The most important ‘muscle building’ and recovery component, which is what you want, is the leucine. Prime Amino uses that specific ratio because it has been proven to increase protein synthesis, and many amino’s over-do this ratio (10:1:1 or even 12:1:1) when the aforementioned ratio is, in fact, better suited to speed up recovery!

The blend is great during your workouts, as it gives your muscles a constant supply of nutrients and prevents cramps (we don’t really want that while lifting). Personally, I like shaking up a fresh batch after my workouts too, to ensure my electrolytes are replenished.

Prime Amino contains all essential amino acids and electrolytes, and will certainly keep you at your prime! I would recommend this 5-star supplement to anyone in the fitness industry, or any sports enthusiast.

Extra Tip: Boil 100ml water, add 1 tablespoon of gelatine powder, and 1 scoop Prime Amino. Add another 400ml cold water and mix. Refrigerate this mixture for 3-4 hours and enjoy a delicious, fruity jelly as a post-workout treat!

Flavours: Blue Raspberry, Pineapple., Black Currant, and Orange Naartjie.
