💥 New Product! 💥 BOOST ENERGY, ENDURANCE, FOCUS & RECOVERY 🥇 • • • PRIMAL ENERGY AMINO is an amino acid energy drink that has been formulated with L-Carnitine and Chromium, through innovative and cutting edge science to increase energy, enhance mental focus, maximise performance, and improve muscle recovery. L-Carnitine can help to improve physical performance when used in conjunction with a training regimen. Additionally, L-Carnitine can help to delay fatigue during physical activity and helps by supporting fat metabolism and oxidation. Chromium provides support for healthy glucose metabolism and assists the body to metabolise carbohydrates and fats. Can be used anytime throughout the day, as an alternative to energy drinks while studying or at work for that little extra boost, or before, during, or after your workout. 🍓🍋🍒🥭 Amino Energy is available in 2 flavours: Mango Raspberry, Strawberry & Lime sorbet . Available exclusively at @dischem_pharmacies @dischem_livingfit
The many amazing abilities of amino acids
Primal Energy Amino’s blend of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA), which include L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine, provides an additional source of energy, as the body preferentially metabolises BCAAs over other proteins when energy demands are high. By supplying your body with these amino acids in supplement form, you’ll limit muscle loss during hard training sessions.
Also included are the amino acids Beta-Alanine, L-Glutamine, L- Taurine, L-Citrulline, L-Tyrosine and L-Theanine. Both Glutamine and Taurine are important amino acids for optimal muscle repair.
They also play important roles in regulating cell volume, which is beneficial for optimal hydration.
Beta-Alanine delays muscle fatigue and, therefore, improves workout performance because it’s a precursor to a lactic acid buffer produced naturally by the body. Another important precursor included in this blend is L-Tyrosine. It helps create dopamine, so supplementing with it can heighten mental alertness, drive and focus, increase feelings of well-being and stave off physical and mental fatigue.
L-Arginine produces nitric oxide in the body, which dilates blood vessels to ensure more nutrients and oxygen reach working muscle more efficiently. Your body will also remove more of the metabolic by-products that build up during exercise more rapidly to enhance recovery and improve endurance.
And L-Citrulline, along with another ingredient, Malic Acid, are involved in energy production at a cellular level, which promotes more efficient energy production and reduces muscle fatigue.
Produce more energy, more efficiently
The L-Carnitine contained in Primal Energy Amino will improve the efficiency with which your body breaks down and uses stored fat as a source of energy. As fat delivers double the energy per gram compared to carbohydrates and protein, a steady supply of fat-derived energy can help to improve physical performance and delay fatigue during training.
The inclusion of Chromium provides additional energy production support, promoting healthy glucose metabolism and assists the body to better metabolise both carbohydrates and fats.
You can sip on Primal Energy Amino throughout the day while studying, or at work for an extra boost. Otherwise, use it before, during or after your workout to get the most from your training. It’s the ideal alternative to other sugar-laden energy drinks, and it’s available in tasty Strawberry & Lime Sorbet, and Mango Raspberry flavours from your nearest Dis-Chem store.
