Mix & Shake

 


Description


Amino Vital’s Mix & Shake delivers the amino power of branched chain amino acids plus glutamine and arginine for long-term conditioning, muscle recovery and higher performance. This elite, high potency formula contains pure, naturally occurring branched chain amino acids leucine, valine and isoleucine, as well as conditionally essential amino acids arginine and glutamine. Amino Vital has also enhanced the formula with immune-supporting vitamin C and minerals.

Muscle fibers are made up of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, valine and isoleucine. BCAAs provide muscle energy and repair muscle tissue. They are essential amino acids that can only be derived from protein foods (such as red meat and dairy products) and supplementation. Although arginine and glutamine are amino acids that can be made by the body, they’re considered conditionally essential amino acids if demand for them exceeds the body’s ability to produce it. Certain conditions, such as physical stress, prolonged exercise, surgery or infections can deplete arginine and glutamine levels, making supplementation necessary.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that neutralizes harmful free radicals (toxic molecules that cause damage to cells) associated with the development of degenerative diseases, heart disease, cancer and aging. This water-soluble vitamin helps keep the immune system functioning optimally. Studies suggest that vitamin C may be especially beneficial for athletes, helping to reverse some of the free radical damage that may occur from exercise and decrease the recovery time between workouts.

Taking a supplement drink such as Amino Vital’s Mix & Shake delivers the nutrition you need to support long-term conditioning, encourage muscle recovery and repair and achieve greater resistance to injuries and a stronger immune system.
