Description
Ultra-Concentrated Anabolic Amino Acid Formula
Monster Amino is an ultra-concentrated BCAA formula that delivers an 8:1:1 ratio of Leucine to Isoleucine to Valine. Recent university research shows that Leucine enriched beverages consumed with exercise synergistically activate and prolong activity of the mTOR signaling pathway, which increases muscle anabolic potential (muscle growth). The mTOR pathway is the “trigger” that signals the very genesis of muscle protein synthesis.

Monster Amino is able to achieve the anabolic 8:1:1 BCAA ratio by combining PepForm™ Leucine Peptides, and free-form L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine for maximum muscle-building performance.

Health Notes

Amino Acids Overview

Amino Acids Overview
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Used for AmountWhy
Liver Cirrhosis
18 grams daily of L-ornithine-L-aspartateas L-Ornithine-L-Aspartate2 stars[2 stars]
As both a supplement and injection, L-ornithine-L-aspartate has been shown to significantly improve liver function, mental status, and brain function.
Alcohol Withdrawal
Refer to label instructions as L-Tyrosine, D,L-Phenylalanine (DLPA), L-Glutamine, L-Tryptophan, and a Multivitamin1 star[1 star]
In double-blind research, alcoholics treated with L-tyrosine combined with DLPA (D,L-phenylalanine), L-glutamine, prescription L-tryptophan, plus a multivitamin had reduced withdrawal symptoms and decreased stress.
Athletic Performance
Refer to label instructions as Aspartic Acid1 star[1 star]
Aspartic acid is an amino acid that participates in many biochemical reactions relating to energy and protein. Research suggests that it may help reduce fatigue during exercise.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Twenty amino acids are needed to build the various proteins used in the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues. Eleven of these amino acids can be made by the body itself, while the other nine (called essential amino acids) must come from the diet. The essential amino acids are isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Another amino acid, histidine, is considered semi-essential because the body does not always require dietary sources of it. The nonessential amino acids are arginine, alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine. Other amino acids, such as carnitine and taurine, are used by the body in ways other than protein-building and are often used therapeutically. L-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea that is said to help relieve stress. Beta-alanine has been used to prevent fatigue during exercise.

        Comments about CytoSport™ Monster Amino - Fruit Punch:

        I tried this product because Xtend by Scivation has changed their formula and well it wasn't good change. I use this during my workout and it makes my muscles feel energized. I also have seen recovery improvements after really heavy sessions so that's a plus. I wouldn't suggest taking it on days off. I tried mixing it in a jug and sipping on it throughout the day, but I got a terrible headache both times. The taste is not really the best, but it's tolerable. I probably will try to find something else to take this stuff just doesn't cut it.

              This is a real great product. I've been on it for a week. It taste great after a workout (which is recommended you should take it). Recovery time is outstanding, sometimes i think i'm not working out hard enough because my recovery is kicking in fast and hard.
