Hyper Amino Ingredients
Hyper Amino is more than just a BCAA blend with a sprinkle of energy. It contains a vast array of aminos intended to support your body in all areas from recovery to circulation to anabolism. The energy blend is equally unique as it’s not just your standard hit of caffeine like many competitors on the market, but enough chit-chat let’s see what they’re packing!
Hyper Amino® Amino Blend (5g)
BCAA 2:1:1 Matrix
Hyper Amino contains a rather unique mixture of unconventional stims and a comprehensive amino acid matrix. Hyper Amino begins where all good amino products should start with a nice hit of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Composed of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine, the BCAAs are a special type of amino acids that possess the unique ability to trigger muscle protein synthesis.[1,2] Additionally, these three aminos also accelerate the recovery process and decrease muscle soreness, a.k.a. DOMS.[3,4]
Higher dose of BCAAs than Amino Energy!
We usually like to see at least 5g of BCAAs in our intra / post workout products, but since this is intended more of as a “during the day” pick me up, we’ll let the sub 5g dose slide. That’s especially true since Gaspari is claiming that it has 33% more BCAAs and L-Glutamine than Optimum Nutrition’s AmiNO Energy, while using less cheap ingredients like taurine!
Amino Recovery Matrix
If you train hard, you have to recover “hard” too. And recovery is longer than just the hour or two following your gym session. It starts then but goes on for much longer than that. For this reason, Hyper Amino has included L-Glutamine and L-Taurine in its Amino Recovery Matrix as both have been demonstrated in research to improve recovery and alleviate muscle damage and soreness.
In the case of Taurine, the recovery benefits are enhanced when the amino is used alongside BCAAs, as it just so happens to be here. This will keep your body in a pro-recovery state all day long so you recover quicker and can get back in the gym to tear the weights a new one the much faster!
Blood Flow & Performance Enhancement Matrix
Having good circulation is good for a number of reasons. Aside from the obvious ones of keeping you alive and healthy, good circulation for your muscles means delivering a fresh supply of oxygen and nutrients to them regularly. This helps keep them supple and can go a long way to improving performance and recovery.
One way supplements can support optimal blood flow is by boosting nitric oxide levels in the body which cause vasodilation (expansion of the blood vessels). This “opens the flood gates” so to speak and enhances circulation throughout the body, but particularly working muscles.
To aid this process, Gaspari has added two proven nitric oxide boosters in L-Citrulline and L-Arginine. Although Citrulline has been shown to be more bioavailable, and more effective, than Arginine at increasing N.O. levels in the body, that doesn’t mean arginine’s inclusion is useless.
Arginine is the amino in the body that is directly responsible for nitric oxide production, so the more available arginine the better!
Essential Amino Matrix
Looking for a full 5g dose of BCAAs? AminoLast sustains you during aimmediately after your workout. Use Hyper Amino for all those times outside of your peri-workout window for maximal gains and recovery.
Your body needs more than just the 3 amino acids to successfully build and repair muscle tissue. There’s actually an entire pool of essential amino acids (EAAs) that must be acquired through food or supplements due to the body’s inability to synthesize them. Unless you want to be munching on cold chicken breast all day long, that means getting aminos in supplementary form.
To supply your body with all the essentials needed for growth and recovery, Hyper Amino contains the “semi-conditional” amino L-Tyrosine as well as other EAAs including: Histidine, Lysine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, and Methione.
The BCAAs give the “kickstart” for muscle growth, and the EAAs are the supply train that keep it running all day long!
Hyper Amino® Hyper Energy Matrix (200mg)
Ilex Guayusa Extract
Unless you’ve happened to visit an Amazonian rain forest, chances are you’ve never heard of this ingredient. Ilex guayusa is a tree found in Ecuador, South America. The Jivaro, a native tribe that resides there, used to make a tea made from its leaves as part of their morning ritual.
Guayusa contains less caffeine than coffee, but more than green tea (our next ingredient) so this is where the stimulant component of Hyper Amino begins.
Provides L-Theanine, Theobromine, and Theophylline
In addition to the caffeine, Guayusa contains L-Theanine, which is commonly found in tea and combines extremely well with caffeine to reduce stress and increase productivity.
Next, it also contains theobromine, one of the feel-good the stimulants often found in chocolate.
Finally, guayusa also provides small amounts of theophylline. This helps to relax muscles in the airway and help with breathing when exercising.
The energy from Ilex Guayusa is a calm, smooth, and invigorating form of energy, and the teas are often interchanged with coffee as a change-up — exactly how Hyper Amino can be used for you!
Green Tea Extract
Green tea has long been heralded for its beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system, due to its high polyphenol and catechin content. The most notable catechin of green tea is EGCG.
Health benefits notwithstanding, green tea is also beneficial for fat burning thanks primarily to EGCG’s role in fostering lipolytic actions in the body.[10,11] You’ll also receive a modest energy boost from the small amount of caffeine contained in it, but the majority of energy will most likely be felt from the ingredient above and below this one.
Guarana is an alkaloid found in all sorts of energy drinks. The seeds contain approximately twice the amount of caffeine as regular old coffee beans. While we don’t know the standardization used here, one thing we do like about this ingredient is that it will increase the stimulatory effects of the other ingredients in Hyper Amino.
This essentially gives us more “bang for our buck” and doesn’t necessitate the inclusion of additional caffeine or other choice stimulants.
