ADDITION of Guayusa Extract: Guayusa is a rare, naturally caffeinated herbal infusion produced from the leaves of a Holly tree native to the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador. Guayusa has been part of Amazonian culture and cultivation for thousands of years, treasured for its unique balance of caffeine, antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids, and its energizing effects. Unlike coffee or other energy drinks, guayusa provides balanced energy without the jitters or the sudden crash commonly associated with caffeinated drinks. Its catechins provide a slow release of caffeine for awake and sustainable energy.
OFF THE CHAIN Aminos is an incredible breakthrough in the supplementation of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's) and recovery aids for muscle growth and repair after grueling training sessions. With its intention of use before, during and after training, our BCAA’s help kick-start protein synthesis which plays an important role in muscle growth and recovery. Hi-Tech's Essential Amino Acids superior ratio of rapidly absorbed free-form amino acids with potent energizers and NO ingredients was formulated to help you achieve OFF THE CHAIN gains - including muscle-building BCAAs and L-Citrulline for muscular pumps. OFF THE CHAIN Aminos has the ability to promote the following:
OFF THE CHAIN Key Benefits:
MORE L-Citrulline: L-Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that is an important intermediate in the urea cycle, functioning along with L-Arginine and L-Ornithine to rid the body of ammonia which is a byproduct of protein metabolism. Because Citrulline is a precursor of Arginine, it provides a readily available source material for Arginine production, which in turn, can be used for the production of Nitric Oxide (NO). NO plays a fundamental role in vascular function and blood flow. Citrulline therefore, not only supports detoxification pathways, but also supports NO production and a healthy cardiovascular system.
LESS L-Taurine: L-Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that does not belong to the group of 20 Proteinogenic Amino Acids. L-Taurine is also the cheapest amino acid available in manufacturing and is why many companies load their products with it to artificially increase the total amount of stated amino acids per serving.
OFF THE CHAIN Aminos promotes Nitric Oxide production with micronized L-Arginine to support Nitric Oxide production and micronized L-Citrulline to promote Nitric Oxide production throughout training. OFF THE CHAIN aminos contains a healthy dose of Essential Amino Acids to accelerate Protein Synthesis and help achieve faster recovery enabling users to recover and grow.
With all the new supplements hitting the market on a near-daily basis, there are undoubtedly some hidden gems that get ignored. Branched-chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are precisely one of those supplements - not quite relegated to obscurity, but nevertheless overlooked until recently.
Like so many Hi-Tech supplements hitting the market, new research studies are sparking a BCAA resurgence. Taking amino acids may sound boring and outdated, but there are many reasons why OFF THE CHAIN Aminos allow for a lot of exciting, growth-producing reasons. First, BCAAs are comprised of three amino acids - leucine, isoleucine, and valine - that when taken together, can produce impressive improvements in strength, lean mass, energy production, and weight loss. BCAAs not only perform these actions independently, but can also increase hormone production for additional muscle gains and prevention of catabolism (muscle breakdown). In short, BCAAs promote protein synthesis in muscle, provide energy in muscle directly (an effect exclusive to these three amino acids), decrease soreness following exercise, increase exercise endurance, and increase testosterone, growth hormone, and insulin levels. BCAAs may comprise up to one-third of muscle protein, making them exclusive power plant amino acids for muscle building.
OFF THE CHAIN Aminos contains over 1,250mg of L-Glutamine, which is the most abundant amino-acid within the body and is primarily stored and synthesized within skeletal muscle. When an athlete puts their body under great metabolic stresses, like heavy training exercise, it can deplete the body of its natural stores of glutamine. In these situations, glutamine becomes an essential amino acid that needs to be supplemented to reduce potential for a catabolic state. L-Glutamine increases intra-muscular stores of glutamine and increases the cell volume of the muscle. Glutamine also increases muscle protein synthesis, as well as decreases degradation of muscle protein. Glutamine has also been shown to increase plasma growth hormone levels as well.
