 Optimum Nutritionís Superior Amino 2222

Description

Optimum Nutrition's Superior Amino 2222 provides top-grade amino acids plus L-glutamine to promote the growth, development and repair of muscle tissue. This high-performance formula contains pure, naturally occurring essential and non-essential amino acids derived from soy protein isolate, whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate. Superior Amino 2200 ensures a positive nitrogen balance, where high levels of protein are maintained in the muscle, promoting rapid muscle growth.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Twenty amino acids are needed to produce necessary body proteins and enzymes. They build the proteins used in the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues, including muscle. Superior Amino 2222 includes eleven non-essential amino acids and nine essential amino acids to ensure total protein utilization. Essential amino acids can only be derived from protein foods (such as red meat and dairy products) or dietary supplements.

Optimum Nutrition's formula also includes L-carnitine, which is produced in the body from the essential amino acids methionine and lysine. L-carnitine is also found in animal products (especially red meats). It enhances cellular energy production by using fat as energy. This increased use of fat as energy can preserve muscle glycogen (stored energy) and decrease muscle fatigue. Some studies show that L-carnitine supplementation can enhance athletic performance, especially intense exercise activities.

Carnitine, along with arginine and glutamine are nonessential amino acids that may become essential if demand for it exceeds the body's ability to produce it. People who may have low levels include vegans/vegetarians, breast-feeding women, premature infants, those on hemodialysis, and injury and burn victims.


Pros

Optimum Nutrition's Superior Amino 2222 ensures a convenient way of getting enough high-quality amino acids in one's diet to promote muscle growth, strength and performance. Superior Amino 2200 capsules are easier to swallow than most amino tablets and are rapidly digested and absorbed.

Studies have found that the nutrients in Superior Amino 2222 have numerous benefits including:

  • Promotes rapid muscle growth
  • Improves strength
  • Enhances energy production from fat
  • Supports physical performance

Cons

Few side effects have been reported with the use of amino acids. Although side effects are uncommon, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, body odor and stomach upset have been reported with the use of L-carnitine.

People with hypothyroidism, seizures, high triglyceride levels, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), depression, Reye's Syndrome, kidney or liver disease should not supplement with amino acids or L-carnitine without consulting a physician.

Be aware that some drugs may interact with the nutrients in Superior Amino 2222 including:

  • Allopurinol
  • Anticonvulsants
  • AZT
  • Chemotherapy
  • Cisplatin
  • Cyclophosphamide
  • Docetaxel
  • Doxorubicin
  • Fluorouracil
  • Gabapentin
  • Methotrexate
  • Paclitaxel
  • Phenobarbitol
  • Valproic Acid

Is it for you?

If you're concerned with high-quality protein intake to build maximum muscle mass and enhance your physical performance, Superior Amino 2222 is for you. Vegetarians would also benefit from Superior Amino 2222 supplementation. However, people with hypothyroidism, seizures, high triglyceride levels, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), depression, Reye's Syndrome, kidney or liver disease should not supplement with amino acids or L-carnitine without consulting a physician.


Dosage and Directions

Take 2 capsules before each meal and again before and after intense training. Amino acids should be taken on an empty stomach so that they won't compete for assimilation with amino acids present in the food you are eating. Take amino acids 45 minutes before a meal and immediately before and following a workout. You may take it with diluted fruit juice or other carbohydrate liquid. You can order Superior Amino 2222 from Optimum Nutrition at the lowest price found online here.
