As promised, I’m using Fridays to talk about fitness and share some product education.
AminoWise is a great product to take during a workout. Many people assume AminoWise is just a BCAA supplement, but it’s so much more! There are 3 different blends in this supplement that help you fight fatigue and enhance recovery during and after exercise.
Are you wondering what BCAAs are and why you need them? “BCAA” stands for branched-chain amino acids. These amino acids make up 35% of your muscle mass and help reduce muscle soreness, support muscle growth, and sustain muscle mass. BCAAs must be consumed through what you eat and drink, they are “essential,” meaning your body cannot manufacture them without proper nutrition. To break it down, BCAAs are an “essential” amino acid, amino acids are the organic compounds that makeup protein, protein is the building block of muscle mass which helps metabolism.
If you don’t work out and are not trying to gain or sustain muscle mass, a healthy diet will most likely give you enough BCAAs. If you are trying to build muscle, not lose muscle mass, are lifting weights, or training heavy, BCAAs are essential to rebuilding, growing, and repairing muscle. They also help your body produce insulin, which helps you turn sugar into energy. Many people who train at high levels take them to prevent muscle damage and soreness. BCAAs have also been used to treat ALS and some muscular diseases.
AminoWise is a BCAA supplement and more!
AminoWise contains a muscle performance blend. This blend provides branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), L-citrulline, and B-alanine – with a few other key amino acids. People have used BCAA’s for strength training and during exercise for years and they are a very popular fitness supplement. During exercise our muscles undergo stress, which in turn causes them to grow and tone. However, during exercise small amounts of muscle can be consumed as energy. This biological process can be increased when people consume very low carb diets. BCAA’s can prevent your body from using muscle as fuel by providing energy right to the muscle and promote lean muscle mass. They can even spare glucose stores to help you work out more efficiently. L-citrulline is a powerful agent in producing Nitric Oxide (NO) in the blood. Nitric oxide is a vasodilator, which means it helps improve vascular blood flow. Enhanced blood flow during exercise can lead to better oxygenation of muscles, faster removal of toxic metabolites, and potentially improve your work out capacity! Yes, that’s correct!
AminoWise also contains a Recovery Blend. This blend contains wolfberry powder and antioxidant ingredients to support recovery after a hard work out. The polyphenols, zinc, and vitamin E work synergistically to protect the muscles from fatigue and damage induced by exercise. Specifically, they work to reduce the release of lactic acid!
Lastly, AminoWise provides a Hydration Mineral Blend. These mineral ions are in the exact ratio lost in sweat to keep you more hydrated, which in turn helps you recover faster. This blend replenishes important minerals lost during exercise, such as sodium citrate, potassium citrate, calcium citrate, and magnesium citrate.
Mix 1 scoop of Aminowise with 8 oz of water and sip on it during and after your workout to stay refreshed.

We are down to two posts left in this series! I will post both of them tomorrow so we can wrap this up and move on to NingXia Red next Saturday, which is great for workouts but has SO MANY OTHER BENEFITS too! I will do a ditch and switch installment for it so you understand what it can replace!
