Alpha Amino

I always get really excited when I find a product that tastes like something I limit myself to. Cellucor’s Alpha Amino mixture is a perfect example. I wasn’t too sure what to expect when drinking this during my gym session, but I was surprised at how similar it tastes to cordial. If you’re like me and enjoy watered down cordial and you are looking to add amino acids into your diet, then this is the product for you.

Alpha Amino Flavours

  • Blue raspberry
  • Grape
  • Lemon Lime
  • Watermelon
  • Fruit Punch

Personally, the lemon-lime flavour is my favourite, because it has a tangy taste, but also a hint of sweetness and it doesn’t leave a sugary leftover taste in your mouth. It glides down and revives your body and quenches your thirst.

You can choose from two serving sizes 30 servings valued at $45.99 and 50 servings valued at $59.99 direct from Cellucor’s website. If you’re impatient like me, Mass Nutrition also stocks this excellent product and if you’re a Sunshine Coast local head to Mass Nutrition Mooloolaba and Kawana to pick up a great deal and friendly advice.

One scoop equals

  • Muscle recovery elements
  • Muscle growth help
  • Reduction in muscle pain
  • Increase in strength

I never truly considered drinking aminos throughout my workout. However the benefits are endless, and the ingredients are mind-blowing.

With chia seed extract, raw coconut concentrate, and now HydraMax for increase concentration to muscle tissue, this makes Alpha Amino’s Alpha-Hydration Formula the ultimate sports drink for committed athletes.

In every serving, Cellucor has included 14 essential amino acids for recovery and endurance. The recommended daily dose depends on the person, however, don’t exceed four servings per day.

You can take one scoop of powder to 250-350mLs of water to drink during your workout or after it. You can drink this sports drink at any time of the day because it promotes recovery and hydration.

I used to drink BCAAs during my workout, but because Cellucor includes BCAAs in their Amino mixture, I believe the better option would be to drink this blend because it incorporates BCAAs and the essential amino’s your body needs.

Which do you think is the better product? Why spend double when you can buy one product that has all the necessary ingredients to recover your body after an intense gym session?
