Hammer Endurance Aminos have recently been added to our inventory of supplements and those of us who have used them have noticed really positive results. Check out the specs from Hammer Nutrition below as well as comments from some of our local athletes who have put these to the test.
Endurance Amino is ideal to use after all workouts and races, and really shines when taken hourly during training sessions and races that extend beyond two hours. Endurance Amino gives you a wide range of powerful amino acid benefits, without you having to break the bank.
Endurance Amino compares extremely well to high priced amino acid tablets on the market, at a fraction of the cost. The foundation of Endurance Amino is the three Branched Chain Amino Acids, or BCAA (l-leucine, l-isoleucine, l-valine), supplementation of which helps delay exercise-induced or central nervous system-induced fatigue, improve immune system reaction, and enhance recovery. Another amino acid, l-alanine, is included in the Endurance Amino formula. The liver can convert l-alanine into glucose as needed, which the bloodstream transports to the muscles for energy. Additionally, l-alanine aids in the synthesis of pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5), which is also needed for protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism.
Last, but certainly not least, Endurance Amino contains glutathione, a tripeptide consisting of the amino acids glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine. Glutathione is one of the three endogenous antioxidants the body maintains to control excess exposure to free radicals produced during exercise as well as from exposure via the environment. With an Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity (ORAC) score/rating estimated to be an astounding 12,000+, glutathione is undoubtedly a potent antioxidant, arguably the most important one in existence.
