Your muscles take the brunt of the onslaught from intense strength training. The muscle damage that occurs during your workout is beneficial in the long run, but it thrusts your body into a state of protein breakdown, otherwise known as catabolism.
That’s why the sports scientists at SAN created Amino Acid 5000. It’s formula was specifically designed to have the most highly-bioavailable Free Form Amino Acids possible. Coupled with powerful insulin-mimicking properties to speed delivery to the muscle cells, this formula quickly halts catabolism and promotes protein synthesis.
Amino Acid 5000 provides essential Branched Chain Amino Acids and Essential Amino Acids that prepare your muscle tissue before workouts and aid in recovery after intense training sessions. Taken before, during and after your workouts, Amino Acid 5000 will fuel your workouts, stimulate protein synthesis to improve recovery, and move you from a catabolic state into a natural anabolic state.
Strength coaches recommend Free Form Amino Acids during training to ensure quick amino acid uptake into blood circulation within 15 minutes. This extreme efficiency means you can fight fatigue, improve recovery, and maximize performance after intense training.
Amino Acid 5000 boasts a powerful 3:1:1 BCAA ratio of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine. Combined with the Essential Amino Acids L-Lysine, L-Threonine, L-Methionine, L-Tryptophan, L-Cysteine, this equates to a 5000 mg. dosage (per 5 tablets) of recovery-enhancing aminos. The addition of Vitamin B1 (as Thiamine), B3 (as Niacin), B12, Magnesium (as Magnesium Citrate), Calcium (as Calcium Carbonate) and Zinc (as Zinc Gluconate) are designed to support nutrient uptake and bioavailability.
Harness the Power of Mimicking Insulin
SAN’s Glucose Disposal Nutrient Partitioning Complex is included to harness the power of mimicking insulin by optimizing your body’s response to naturally-produced insulin, resulting in a leaner, more muscular and healthy physique.
This insulin-mimicking nutrient complex in Amino Acid 5000 contains Banaba Leaf Extract and Decaffeinated Green Coffee bean extract to ensure that carbohydrates are stored as glycogen rather than fat, fueling hard-working muscles much more efficiently.
Banaba Leaf Extract (AKA Corosolic acid) is a triterpenoid found in the leaves, and this helps support and maintain normal, healthy blood sugar levels by stimulating glucose uptake. In a study of humans using banaba extract, it was shown that this natural compound supported healthy blood glucose levels. This natural plant extract safely mimics insulin, can be taken orally, and has no adverse effects according to Japanese research.
