AMINO RUSH™ BCAA 2:2:1™ is a very versatile product. Consume AMINO RUSH™ 2:2:1™ prior to a fasted workout, or during a workout or athletic event. AMINO RUSH™ 2:2:1™ can also be stacked with your favorite pre- and post-workout supplement, such as SHOTGUN® 5X™ or SYNTHESIZE®. Always drink 12 to 16 ounces of additional water with each AMINO RUSH™ 2:2:1™ drink. BCAAs, which constitute links in a protein chain, are essential for a variety of functions, including increased muscle protein synthesis, decreased muscle soreness, and have a muscle-sparing effect on muscle tissue.† The 2:2:1 Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine Ratio is a Patent Pending Proprietary Blend of BCAAs. Many supplement companies went afoul by increasing Leucine content in the BCAA profile. While their intentions were noble, their science was faulty. Consuming the Patent Pending 2:2:1 BCAA ratio in AMINO RUSH™ BCAA 2:2:1™ allows you to ignite the explosive muscle building power of not only mTOR, but also GLUT4!† It's the mTOR / GLUT4 Bio-Synergistic sizzle that's going to give you the locked and loaded SHOT-GUNS you need to kick ass on the field and in the gym!
