Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) have been used by top bodybuilders and other athletes for years due to their ability to support training endurance and recovery!* BCAAs are comprised of three powerful amino acids – leucine, isoleucine and valine – and are perfect for any hard-training athlete because they serve as primary building blocks for muscle and help combat muscle loss and protein breakdown, especially during intense training.*
And while many BCAA powders deliver these basics, most BCAA or amino powders are not based on scientific research, nor are they designed to enhance performance. MuscleTech® researchers knew this when they created the original AMINO BUILD® formula, and that’s why they engineered more than just another “me too” amino formula. Instead, AMINO BUILD was developed with elite athletes in mind and formulated with clinically researched ingredients that drive peak performance – including a massive dose of BCAAs, clinically researched doses of leucine, and betaine – that other amino formulas simply didn’t have.*
Betaine has quickly become a staple of many athletes’ supplementation plans because of its ability to deliver real musclebuilding results.* With the launch of the original AMINO BUILD® formula, Team MuscleTech® researchers were among the first to include a clinical dose of betaine in any supplement, and the science continues to support this amazing ingredient!
In a 2013 study featuring 23 experienced strength-trained men between the ages of 18 and 35 conducted at a leading American University and published in the Journal of The International Society of Sports Nutrition, researchers found that subjects who supplemented with 1.25g of betaine twice a day with weight training, gained 3.75 lbs. of muscle in 6 weeks – while the placebo group gained just 0.66 lbs.* That’s over 5.5 times the muscle gained versus the placebo group from the exact dose found in 2 scoops of AMINO BUILD® NEXT GEN
