What Is AMINO-GRO?

AMINO-GRO is the latest advancement in the Amino Acid category . Combining BIO-GRO Bio-Active Peptides with a research proven 2:1:1 ratio of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs – leucine, isoleucine, valine), instantized Glutamine and the hydration and electrolyte power of CocoDrate™, sets AMINO-GRO apart from any other product in the category. Just as important as what is in AMINO-GRO, is what is not in AMINO-GRO. The leading formula is also sugar free which makes it perfect for both muscle gaining and fat-loss phases of training∆ⱡ

What does AMINO-GRO do?

Muscle

With the clinically validated 2:1:1 ratio of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) and the power of BIO-GRO, the AMINO-GRO formula is like no other when it comes to performance, recover and muscular development. Leucine in the form of LeuciTor™ activates the critical mTor muscle-building pathway which is a key factor in muscles ability to adapt to training. The addition of BIO-GRO utilizes the power of Bio-Active Peptides to the muscle to increase protein synthesis, which has been shown to increase lean muscle mass in clinical studies. To compliment the BCAAs and BIO-GRO, instantized glutamine has been added to the AMINO-GRO formula providing additional muscle-sparing protection, which ultimately assist in gaining lean muscle.∆

Recovery

The very essence of building muscle revolves around how fast you can recover from each intense workout. AMINO-GRO is scientifically designed to help accelerate and optimize your recovery. The combination of BCAAs, BIO-GRO, glutamine and CocoDrate™ (a proprietary combination of Cococin™ coconut water powder with other electrolytes) work together to prevent muscle breakdown, signal protein synthesis and hydrate the muscle for improved recovery.∆

Performance

One of the most critical factors in performing at your peak is being well hydrated and having a positive balance of electrolytes. AMINO-GRO incorporates CocoDrate™ to help keep your body performing at its peak! With AMINO-GRO, you’ll recover faster and more completely after each workout. This allows you to perform at a higher level in each training session that follows. This ability to train at peak levels translates to improved performance.∆

Frequently Asked Questions

As a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop of AMINO-GRO in 6–10 oz. of cold water. Consume 1–3 servings per day depending on your training goals. AMINO-GRO can be use throughout the day or for a pre-workout/intra-workout boost. AMINO-GRO can be used on its own or in combination with other iSatori supplements.
The simple answer is yes. The AMINO-GRO formula is a 0 Sugar, 0 Fat, 0 Gluten formula with only two grams of carbohydrates per serving. It is a delicious tasting formula that will assist in recovery, performance, lean muscle and hydration. Many people use AMINO-GRO throughout the day to stay hydrated while keeping calories in check.
The first thing you will notice when you first use AMINO-GRO is the incredible taste! This is a refreshing performance supplement that can be used every day to support your training goals. With the research proven ratio of BCAAs and BIO-GRO, support for your lean-muscle gains will be turned on from your very first serving. Recovery time will be shortened allowing you to maximize every workout. On top of this, your hydration and electrolyte levels will approaching their peak, contributing to maximum performance in and out of the gym.∆

TALK ABOUT FLAVOR

This amino has the best flavor around I suggest the Frosted Lemonade.

Posted by BigHoss16 on September 12, 2016

I can truly say __ the best Aminos I__ve ever tried

We’re all on the hunt for more muscle and recovery. I’ve tried literally every amino out there including pills, powders and liquid. This is the BEST tasting amino I have ever had. The profile is great too 2:1:1 on BCAAs, Glutamine, Biogro and hydration properties?!?! This is great for off season or cutting for a show and I’ve used it for both. Try the Lemonade

Power and Flavor

5 stars across the board. You have to try the Lemeonade it the best I’ve EVER tried. Mixes really well, looks great, solid amino formula.

Posted by Siera on January 30, 2016

Tastes just like a snow cone!

The amino acid profile of this product is top shelf! I use this everyday during my workout and tastes amazing!!
