Hey, guys, Sean Nalewanyj, of EliteImpactLabs . And today, I want to do a quick review on quot;Multispectrum Amino Acids Supplements.quot; So, if you’re trying to build muscle, burn fat or gain strength, protein is obviously going to be the most important nutrient in your overall diet. It’s responsible for building and repairing damaged muscle tissue. And it’s the only nutrient that can directly improve your body composition on its own. Now, protein is made up of individual building blocks called quot;Amino acidsquot;. There are typically around 20 recognized amino acids found in the human body, eight of which are considered to be essential, because they can’t be manufactured, and have to be consumed through your diet.
And because of the central role that amino acids play in the muscle building process, many supplement companies offer formulas that contain a wide spectrum of these amino acids in liquid or pill form. But are amino acid supplements worth your money? The reality is that your body is very efficient at the process of digestion and absorption. And all of the regular proteins that you are consuming throughout the day are going to be eventually broken down into these individual amino acid building blocks anyway. Amino acid supplements simply provide these building blocks in predigested free form, so that they can be utilized by your body at a faster rate. However, having those amino acids utilized at a faster rate,.
Doesn’t really provide you with any unique advantage over consuming regular whole food proteins. If you’re consuming a standard bodybuilding diet that includes about 1gram of protein per pound of body weight each daily, you’re always going to have a steady stream of amino acids available when your body needs it. So, there’s nothingÂ inherently wrongÂ with amino acid supplements from the standpoint of basic effectiveness, it’s just that you’re going to end up paying a much higher cost on a gram for gram basis for a product that is essentially protein compressed into tablet or liquid form. A much more effective and economical route is to simply supplement with a high quality whey protein powder. Whey protein will be.
Less expensive per serving. And it’s going to provide your body with a protein source that is already rich in the most anabolic amino acids available, particularly LLeucine, LValine and LIsoleucine. Now, what about singular, isolated amino acids? Well, I don’t recommend bothering withÂ the multispectrumÂ formulas for the reasons that I’ve outlined in this tutorial. There are few singular amino acids thatÂ are worth supplementing with individually in higher amounts that you aren’t going to get from diet, and that you’re not going to get from the multispectrum formulas. So, the main ones that I recommend would be first off, Beta Alanine. Beta Alanine,Â raises intramuscular levels of carnosine which improves muscular.
Strength and endurance. And a highly reliable dosage for that is 3.2grams taken daily. The second would be Acetyl LCarnitine, whichÂ has been shown to have positive effects on fat loss and cognitive function for improved focus during your workouts. And I recommend about 2grams taken 30 to 45 minutes preworkout. The third would be LCarnitine LTartrate, which improves muscle recovery and increases androgen receptor sensitivity. And the study dose for LCLT is 2grams daily. And finally, LTyrosine, 1gram to 3grams taken preworkout has been shown to improve mental focus, performance and fat loss when combined it with caffeine. And all four those singular amino acids will be included in their study dosages in our.
Brand new Muscle Amp preworkout formula, which is going to be launching sometime in midMarch. And you can get yourself on the prelaunch VIP list for that using the link in the description box below to ensure that you get your own supply when our first 500 bottles are released.

BCAAs Explained in 60 seconds Should You Supplement With BCAAs
BCAAs. What are they? Should you be taking them? BCAAs are actually amino acids, branched chain amino acids. They’re also quot;essentialquot; amino acids, which means your body can’t make them and you have to eat them. And there are three of them. Isoleucine, which helps with energy uptake and preserves protein breakdown. Valine, which isn’t all that special. It does what the other two do but it’s not really good at it, kind of more of a tagalong. Then there’s leucine, which is THE main BCAA. It helps preserve lean mass, increase insulin levels, and most importantly, it activates mTOR, which promotes muscle growth. Leucine.
Is so important that studies even found it’s better when taken alone than BCAAs mixed together. Kind of like the Beyonce of the group. So BCAAs are pretty important stuff and is usually recommended to take between 520 grams a day. Thing is, you’re already taking it. Proteins, such as chicken, beef, eggs, and peanuts, all contain loads of BCAAs. If you consume enough protein in general, supplementation is simply unnecessary. They’re even in the protein shake that some of you drink! Unless you’re eating very little protein or on an extreme weight loss plan, skip the supplement and fry up the pan instead!
