AmiNo flow is the first supplement to qualify as an Amino-Oxide: a new category combining amino acids and nitric oxide boosters. There have been similar products claiming to be a 2 in 1 Amino Acid-Nitric Oxide product, however an analysis of these formulas reveals that the Nitric Oxide claims are based on a single ingredient rather than a system of NO ingredients. This drove Muscle Elements to create a product that delivered full doses of amino acids and nitric oxide potentiators to warrant being the first authentic Amino-Oxide product on the market.
AmiNo flow’s Muscle Growth & Recovery Elements contains taurine and 5 grams of anti-catabolic BCAA’s at a 3:1:2 ratio to work synergistically with nitric oxide boosters. AmiNo flow utilizes 2 grams of L-citrulline per serving rather than the bonded L-citrulline malate, as this form would typically only yield 50% of actual L-citrulline. In addition, AmiNo flow’s Pump & Transport Elements also includes Agmatine Sulfate, L-Histidine, L-Ornithine HCL, and Grape Seed Extract. The function of this blend is to enhance the delivery of nutrients due to the improved blood flow and in combination with BCAAs has a positive effect on protein synthesis. Fluid balance and hydration are maintained from sodium phosphate, magnesium phosphate and calcium phosphate which make up the Hydration & Endurance Elements.
One of the most exciting aspects of AmiNo flow is its versatility. It can be taken at different times throughout the day for optimum amino acid and nitric oxide blood levels. AmiNo flow can also be utilized as a pre-workout booster by adding it your favorite pre-workout, such as PreCre. Furthermore AmiNo flow can be taken as a stand-alone pre-workout to increase nitric oxide production, exercise capacity, and of course eXplosive Pumps!
AmiNo flow is the next step in Amino-Oxide supplementation combining muscle sparing amino acids, blood flow increasing nitric oxide components, and hydrating fuel electrolytes. Imagine an amino acid supplement that allows you to increase protein synthesis, nitric oxide, muscular endurance, muscle fullness, and recovery as well as maintain positive nitrogen balance!
BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) - a group of amino acids that include leucine, isoleucine and valine which are among the nine essential amino acids necessary that must be supplied in the diet. Branched chained amino acids are absorbed directly in muscle and metabolized quickly*. BCAAs play a key role in protein synthesis, reduce DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), muscle fatigue, protein degradation, muscle damage and spare muscle glycogen*. Research suggests that 10 grams a day is enough to reduce DOMS and muscle damage*. AmiNo Flow contains 5 grams of BCAAs per servings/ per scoop.
Taurine - an amino acid that is a derivative of cysteine and that plays a role in cardiac function and in skeletal muscle*. Research has shown that supplementation of taurine increases muscular performance, exercise capacity, reduces lactate acid concentration during exercise, muscle damage and oxidative stress after exercise*. A gram of taurine is recommended per day for exercise capacity*. AmiNo Flow delivers on that by giving 1 gram per serving/ per scoop.
Citrulline - an amino acid that is involved in the urea cycle and is a precursor along with arginine for nitric oxide*. It is produced naturally in the body and is found naturally in food such as cucumber and squash. Citrulline when supplemented increases the use of amino acids during exercise, increases arginine for nitric oxide production, enhances anaerobic performance, reduces muscle soreness, increases nitrogen balance, reduces fatigue and increases aerobic energy*. Dosages of 1.5 grams of citrulline per day are needed for nitric oxide production*. AmiNo Flow provides 2 grams per serving/per scoop.
Grape Seed Extract - natural extract from Vitis Vinifera which are usually standardized for polyphenols to increase potency. Grape seed extract contains many compounds like resveratrol that have been shown to increases nitric oxide production, oxidative capacity and reduces oxidative stress after exercise*. AmiNo Flow provides 75 mg's per serving/per scoop.
AgmaMAX® - (Agmatine Sulfate) - a metabolite of arginine that plays a role in the production of nitric oxide by the modulation of nitric oxide synthase which are enzymes that play a role in nitric oxide production*. Agmatine appears to induce vasodilation from NO production which leads to increased muscle pumps, nutrient transportation and enhanced blood flow to working muscles. AmiNo Flow provides 250 mg's per serving/per scoop.
Ornithine - an amino acid that is involved in the urea cycle and is a precursor of arginine. Ornithine has been shown to be associated the ability to induce the secretion of anabolic hormones such has growth hormone but new findings suggest it has a myriad of another functions such as protein synthesis, protein catabolism and reduction physical fatigue*. AmiNo Flow provides 125 mg's per serving/per scoop.
Histidine - an amino acid that is that is essential to the human body and that is found in food such as meat, poultry and fish. Histidine along with beta alanine form the dipeptide carnosine which is present in muscle tissue and is a precursor to histamine which affects vasodilation via NO*. Histidine has been shown to effect nitrogen balance and may increase nitric oxide (NO)*. AmiNo Flow provides 125 mg's per serving/per scoop.
Di-Calcium Phosphate, Di-Potassium Phosphate, & Di-Sodium Phosphate - electrolytes are compounds that effect fluid balance in the body and are essential minerals for the body to function properly*. Hydration and fluid balance have a direct impact on physical performance and beverages that include sodium and other electrolytes improve fluid balance and electrolyte levels effected during exercise*. AmiNo Flow provides 750 mg's of total electrolytes per serving/per scoop.
