Why choose Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy?

Optimum Nutrition is a brand whose basis has always been working with the basic building blocks that will always define success for athletes; proteins, amino acids, carbohydrates and proven ergogenics such as essential amino acids, and caffeine. Add to this mix high-quality research and development team and the backing of a billion dollar holding company, and you have a brand whose products consistently rate among the very best in the field for taste and effectiveness.

Amino energy is Optimum Nutrition's pre-workout formulation and a supplement built, as the name suggests, around essential amino acids - the building blocks of protein without which you can train all you want but you will never get bigger. Optimum recognise that with the training period being one where your muscles (made of amino acids) are torn down, it is essential to assist the recovery process by providing them BEFORE you train so they are available to enhance recovery while training. Amino energy is another great Optimum supplement and one which will win fans for anyone wanting a lower stim pre workout which works the fundamentals better than anything else out there.

A classic old school pre workout with a great taste.

Read CSN's in-depth and unbiased review of Optimum Nutritions's Amino Energy

Optimum Nutrition is unquestionably one of the world’s leading sports supplement manufacturers. Their reputation is built on providing a wide range of high-quality supplements, many of which are world-wide best sellers. At CSN Optimum Nutrition products have gathered exceptional levels of brand loyalty, reflecting the fact that these products meet our customers’ expectations.

Optimum Nutrition’s Amino energy is a two-in one supplement designed to give you the mental focus and energy to get you through even the toughest training sessions, whilst simultaneously providing essential amino acids that are important for recovery and muscle growth.

Claims and benefits made by Optimum Nutrition about Amino Energy

Amino Energy was designed to ‘give you the edge’. Created to provide a burst of energy without being overly stimulant heavy to prevent crashing and with amounts of caffeine that can be used periodically throughout the day to keep you not mentally in the game.

Each ‘great tasting’ drink also contains an essential variety of amino acids so not only are you supporting your mental performance, you are supporting recovery and muscle growth too.

Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy Ingredients

Amino Energy is ‘packed full’ of micronized amino acids to ensure efficient dosing and uptake into the body. Amino Energy contains not just the branch chain amino acids that are essential for triggering muscle building processes, but 5g of all the essential amino acids that body needs to further support recovery and muscle growth.

Recent research has shown that BCAA’s on their own are less effective than EAA for supporting recovery and building muscle, as although BCAAs, namely leucine, trigger muscle protein synthesis (MPS), which is the metabolic pathway that allows new muscle tissue to be built, this ‘trigger’ is only going to be effective at building muscle if all the other essential amino acids are present as these are required to fully support the repair and creation of new muscle tissue.

Because of the moderate caffeine content at 100mg per serving, around the same as a strong cup of coffee, Amino Energy is not overly stimulant heavy so can be used throughout the day whenever energy levels and mental focus are getting low. Energy is further supported with the addition of coffee bean and green tea extract, adding a little extra ‘punch’ in terms of energy whilst supporting overall energy metabolism.

Amino Energy is also low in calories, with zero sugars and just 29kcal per serving, so can be used to effectively provide energy alongside a calorie controlled weight loss plan.

CSN's recommended usage

If you are looking to help lift fatigue first thing in the morning or throughout the day and keep fatigue at bay during training then mix one scoop of Amino Energy with around 300ml of water. If you are using it as a pre-workouts supplement, then 1.5-2 servings can be used. With any caffeine supplement, it is always important to assess your personal tolerance to caffeine at lower doses before attempting to use higher doses.

Can it be stacked with any other sports supplements?

Amino Energy can be used alongside any of your favourite supplements that are in line with your goals. However, it might be wise to avoid using Amino Energy alongside any other pre-workouts or supplements that contain caffeine.

To support muscle growth then Amino Energy combined with Optimum Nutrition’s Gold Standard Whey as a post-workout protein shake will further support muscle recovery and growth and help you meet your daily protein requirements. For ‘hardgainers’ then Gold Standard Gainer provides all the essential nutrients and energy to support muscle growth, including a premium quality protein source and carbs from powdered oats, peas and potato.

For anyone serious about building muscle and supporting their performance, then creatine is an excellent part of any supplement stack with these goals in minds.

Summary of Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy

Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy is a high-quality combination of essential amino acids and energy boosting ingredients to support recovery, muscle growth and performance. Each serving contains 5g of micronized amino acids and 100g of caffeine, alongside green tea and coffee extracts to provide an immediate pick-me-up, to lift fatigue and boost energy levels.

Amino Energy is suitable for use throughout the day whenever energy levels are flagging and mental performance in diminished and as a pre or intra-workout that not only helps you perform at you best but contains all the essential amino acids you need to start the recovery and muscle building process straight away.
