THE ATHLETE'S SPORTS DRINK/BCAA PRODUCT OF CHOICE AMINO PERFORMANCE
is the athlete's sports drink/BCAA product of choice. Featuring a complimentary 50:50 ratio of BCAAs and L-Glutamine plus a hydrating vitamin and electrolyte complex,
AMINO PERFORMANCE delivers a novel, comprehensive amino product. Powered by 4X leucine to other branch chain amino acids means you're maximizing the body's ability to fuel skeleton muscle, increase protein synthesis, preserve muscle glycogen and minimize muscle tissue breakdown.
AMINO PERFORMANCE's hydrating electrolyte and vitamin complex ensures you're replenishing important vitamins and minerals either before, during or after you workout. More vitamins and minerals won't increase performance but a shortage of them will certainly hamper it.
PRE WORKOUT NUTRITION TAKEN CARE OF. AMINO PERFORMANCE is what we call the ultimate peri-workout nutrition supplement, strategically providing the body with key nutrients around periods of stress - such as when working out or during a competition - in order to optimize performance and recovery.
SUGAR FREE / CAFFEINE FREE. AMINO PERFORMANCE is sugar free and caffeine free ensuring no crashes or jitters. This means AMINO PERFORMANCE can be consumed anytime of the day including evenings if you train later in the day.
EXTREMELY VERSATILE. AMINO PERFORMANCE is so versatile it can be used either when training fasted in a morning - or before any training period. It can be used intra (during) exercise for fatigue reduction, and post exercise for optimal recovery. It can even be sipped on during the day on non-training days acting as a great tasting hydrating sports recovery drink.
THE POWER OF BCAA POWDER: Branch chain amino acids have been used for decades in sports performance and recovery. They act as a raw fuel substrate to working muscles making them great for fasted training fans. Consuming a BCAA powder increase our ability to recovery, aid in fat loss and help with keeping our immune system strong and healthy.
RECOVER WITH 4X LEUCINE
AMINO PERFORMANCE is powered by 4X leucine, the most important amino acid of them all. At 4X leucine to other branch chain aminos you're maximizing the body's ability to fuel skeleton muscle, increase protein synthesis, preserve muscle glycogen and minimize muscle tissue breakdown.
Amino Performance uses instantized BCAAs and a complimentary serving of L-Glutamine ensuring fast delivery and uptake.
FASTED TRAINING AND THE ROLE OF BCAAs:
WHAT THE SCIENCE SAYS BCAAs are not metabolised in the liver. They compete for absorption with tryptophan for uptake across the blood-brain barrier. If you increase the ratio of BCAAs to tryptophan in the blood stream this will lead to a decrease in the amount of serotonin synthesised which, studies suggest, may reduce fatigue during exercise. Further research of BCAAs show that intake prior to fasted training increases phosphorylation of p70s6k, which is a signalling pathway, including mTOR, that increases protein synthesis. Therefore consuming a BCAA powder when training fasted allows you to take advantage of the fatigue reducing effects of BCAAs meaning you can continue to perform at maximum capacity.

Since the Amino packaging has been changed to a tub rather than a bag it has a really foul smell and just isn’t the same. I don’t know if the product has changed as it tastes the same but unfortunately it has put me off buying it again.
Excellent service as always!
Great post workout
Will be using Icon again. Need to restock shakers though
I’ve been using Icon Nutrition’s products for a long time now and it does what it says! Every product is made to very high standards and good quality. I love the battle oats bars and the Whey Protien flavours as well as the Amino Performance to help with my performance in the gym! Great Company and staff are very friendly, service is quick and effiecient.
