World's First Strength-Enhancing BCAA+ formula
ALL-NEW AMINO BUILD™ is a superior BCAA+ amino acid formula designed with a 2:1:1 BCAA matrix powered by a 4-gram dose of Leucine shown to increase strength by over 40%. Other cutting-edge compounds were added to enhance the overall workout experience including a clinical dose of Betaine. This amino fuel tastes great, mixes easily, and can be used to aid strength and muscle endurance. AMINO BUILD™ also supplies vital electrolytes and Taurine, a powerful cell-volumizing agent, for a truly advanced BCAA-amino formula.
  • 100% Free-Form 2:1:1 BCAA Matrix
    The branched chain amino acids in AMINO BUILD™ are 100% free form. Free-form amino acids are singular molecules, which means they are quickly digested and absorbed by your bloodstream. The formula supplies a massive 8 grams of BCAAs in a 2:1:1 ratio, which helps fuel your skeletal muscles, preserves muscle glycogen stores and helps to reduce the amount of protein breakdown.
  • Increase Strength by over 40%:
    AMINO BUILD™ is precisely formulated with a 4-gram dose of L-leucine shown in a clinical study to help subjects increase their 5-rep max strength by over 40% in just 12 weeks.1 A clinically studied 2.5-gram dose of Betaine has also been added to the formula that helped subjects significantly enhance their muscular endurance. Together, these will help you get stronger and go longer.*
  • Enhances Endurance with First Dose
    A 1-gram dose of Taurine consumed 2 hours prior to cardio training, the same amount in AMINO BUILD, is clinically shown to improve performance in endurance athletes.
  • Added Cell-Volumizing Compounds
    In addition to its key ingredients, the formula delivers 4 grams of a Cell-Volumization Muscle Complex comprised of Taurine L-glutamine, L-citrulline malate and L-alanine. Together, these compounds work to enhance cell volumization during training.
  • Best-in-Class Taste
  • AMINO BUILD™ was flavored by experts in one of the world's top flavoring houses in order to taste better than any other amino acid powder on the market.
  • Get More for Your MoneyUnlike the competition, Performance Series products contain superior key ingredients in clinically dosed amounts that are fully disclosed so you know exactly what you are paying for.

Health Notes

Green Tea

Green Tea
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • 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.

High Cholesterol
Dose: 75 mg of theaflavins, 150 mg of green tea catechins, and 150 mg of other tea polyphenols dailyAn extract of green tea, enriched with a compound present in black tea (theaflavins), has been found to lower serum cholesterol in a double-blind study of people with moderately high cholesterol levels. The average reduction in total serum cholesterol during the 12-week study was 11.3%, and the average reduction in LDL cholesterol was 16.4%. The extract used in this study provided daily 75 mg of theaflavins, 150 mg of green tea catechins, and 150 mg of other tea polyphenols.
High Triglycerides
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Intake of three cups or less of green tea daily has been shown not to affect blood triglyceride levels.1 Intake of four or more cups per day has been correlated with lower triglyceride levels.2 Overall, the evidence is unclear on how much of an effect high levels of intake of green tea has on triglyceride levels.

Sunburn
Dose: Apply a formula containing 10% green tea polyphenols before sun exposure

Green tea(Camellia sinensis) contains polyphenols that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, and animal and preliminary human studies have suggested that these polyphenols, when given orally or used topically, can protect skin against ultraviolet rays.1, 2, 3, 4 In a small, controlled human study, topical application of green tea extracts containing from 2.5 to 10% polyphenols significantly reduced the amount of burning from exposure to ultraviolet rays, with the 10% solution exerting greater protective effect.5

Influenza
Dose: Gargle with a liquid extract containing 200 mcg per ml three times per day

In a preliminary study of elderly nursing home residents in Japan, only 1.3% of those who gargled with a green tea extract three times a day during the winter developed influenza, whereas 10.4% of those who gargled without the green tea extract developed the disease (a statistically significant difference). The presumed active ingredients in the extract were a group of flavonoids called catechins, which were present in the extract at half the concentration as that in green tea.1 It is possible, therefore, that gargling with green tea itself might also be effective for preventing the flu.

In a double-blind study of healthcare workers, the combination of 378 mg per day green tea catechins and 210 mg per day of theanine (another component of green tea) taken for 5 months reduced the incidence of influenza infection by 69%, when compared with a placebo.2

Immune Function
Dose: Refer to label instructionsGreen tea has stimulated production of immune cells and has shown anti-bacterial properties in animal studies.1, 2, 3 More research is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of green tea in protecting against infection and other immune system-related diseases.

Infection
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Herbs that directly attack microbes include the following: chaparral, eucalyptus, garlic, green tea, lemon balm (antiviral), lomatium, myrrh, olive leaf, onion, oregano, pau d'arco (antifungal), rosemary, sage, sandalwood, St. John's wort, tea tree oil, thyme, and usnea.

Obesity
Dose: An extract supplying 270 mg of EGCG and 150 mg of caffeine per day

Green tea extract rich in polyphenols (epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG) may support a weight-loss program by increasing energy expenditure or by inhibiting the digestion of fat in the intestine.1 Healthy young men who took two green tea capsules (containing a total of 50 mg of caffeine and 90 mg of EGCG) three times a day burned significantly more calories and oxidized significantly more fat than those who took caffeine alone or a placebo. In a preliminary study of moderately obese individuals, administration of a specific green tea extract (AR25) resulted in a 4.6% reduction in average body weight after 12 weeks. The amount of green tea extract used in this study supplied daily 270 mg of EGCG and 150 mg of caffeine.

While caffeine is known to stimulate metabolism, it appears that other substances besides caffeine were responsible for at least part of the weight loss. Although the extract produced few side effects, one individual developed abnormal liver function tests during the study. In another study, consuming approximately 12 ounces of oolong tea (a semifermented version of green tea) daily for 12 weeks reduced waist circumference and the amount of body fat in a group of normal-weight to overweight men. However, in another study, 300 mg per day of EGCG was no more effective than a placebo for promoting weight loss in overweight postmenopausal women.2 Additional studies are needed to confirm the safety and effectiveness of green tea extracts for promoting weight loss.

Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: Refer to label instructionsA meta-analysis of 17 randomized controlled trials, including a total of 1,133 subjects (mostly overweight or obese, and/or having type 2 diabetes or borderline diabetes) found that green tea consumption significantly improved blood glucose control and insulin sensitivity.1

Prostate Cancer
Dose: Several cups per day (enough to provide 600 mg of catechins daily) In a double-blind trial, men with precancerous changes in the prostate received a green tea extract providing 600 mg of catechins per day or a placebo for one year. After one year, prostate cancer had developed in 3.3% of the men receiving the green tea extract and in 30% of those given the placebo, a statistically significant difference.1 These results suggest that drinking green tea or taking green tea catechins may help prevent prostate cancer in men at high risk of developing the disease.

Hives
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Two components of green tea, the polyphenols epigallocatechin (EGC) and epicatechin gallate (ECG),1 are reported to have an antihistamine effect. Some doctors recommend approximately 3 cups of green tea per day or about 3 grams of soluble components providing roughly 240 to 320 mg of polyphenols, although no human trials have studied the effects of green tea in people with hives.

Crohn's Disease
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Tannin-containing herbs may be helpful to decrease diarrhea during acute flare-ups and have been used for this purpose in traditional medicine. A preliminary trial using isolated tannins in the course of usual drug therapy for Crohn's disease found them to be more effective for reducing diarrhea than was no additional treatment.1 Tannin-containing herbs of potential benefit include agrimony (Agrimonia spp.), green tea, oak, witch hazel, and cranesbill. Use of such herbs should be discontinued before the diarrhea is completely resolved; otherwise the disease may be aggravated.

Leukoplakia
Dose: 3 grams daily of a combination of whole green tea, green tea polyphenols, and green tea pigments, along with painting the mixture on the lesions three times per day

In a double-blind trial, people with leukoplakia took 3 grams per day of a mixture of whole green tea, green tea polyphenols, and green tea pigments orally and also painted the mixture of the tea on their lesions three times per day for six months.1 Those in the green tea group had significant improvement in the healing of their lesions.

Abnormal Pap Smear
Dose: Twice weekly, apply a cream with 15% polyphenols to the cervix and/or take a 200 mg EGCG supplement daily

In a preliminary study, women with cervical dysplasia were randomly assigned to receive either 200 mg per day of EGCG-a green tea extract known as (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate-200 mg per day of poly E (another green tea extract), or no treatment (control group) for 8 to 12 weeks. More than 50% of the women receiving EGCG or poly E had an improvement in their Pap smear, compared with only 10% of the women in the control group.1

Parts Used & Where Grown

All teas (green, black, and oolong) are derived from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. The difference is in how the plucked leaves are prepared. Green tea, unlike black and oolong tea, is not fermented, so the active constituents remain unaltered in the herb. The leaves of the tea plant are used both as a social and a medicinal beverage.

                Comments about MuscleTech® Amino Build™ - Green Apple:

                Aminobuild tastes like fruit juice and has some of the best ingredients. I find a lot of amino supplements are under dosed with Leucine, and I appreciate that Aminobuild has saturated amounts of Leucine for the strength benefits. The taste though is the major reason I prefer it over other amino supplements.

                  Mixes great and tastes good during workout. Has a good mix of essentail branch chain aminos to help with muscle break down. One of the few products I will always use while dieting.

                    Taste is good not great, but you get used to it after a five or so uses. I use two scoops for 16 oz. 2 hours before my workout. I experience increase in endurance in my overall workout. I've also tried it during my workout and experience a slight increase in overall strength. I did experience better recovery time as well. The product does what it says and is a great value for what you get out of it.

                    Comments about MuscleTech® Amino Build™ - Green Apple:

                    Taste : 4.5/5
                    It tastes like a green apple Jolly Rancher, but there is definitely some chalkyness when mixed with cold water. I tried 1 scoop in 20 ounces and 2 scoops in 20 ounces and both were slightly chalky. The powder itself has a consistency similar to flour, while other intras I've had are more like sugar. For me it wasn't a problem; it tastes good and goes down smooth.

                    I also tried the White Grape flavor and found it to be very tasty as well. Not too sweet and very similar to an Airhead candy.

                    The label says 1 scoop per 8 ounces, but that would be much too sweet for me. Even 1 scoop in 20 ounces is pretty sweet and doesn't taste watered down at all.

                    Mixability: 5/5
                    The highest powder to water ratio I've tried is 2 scoops in 20 ounces and that mixed perfectly fine. No clumps, no leftover powder, and no grittyness. Just to be safe, I usually invert my bottle once or twice before taking a sip at the gym, but that wasn't necessary with Amino Build. It does get a little frothy if you shake it too much, which I found a strange, but just like the foam on a protein shake it goes down pretty quickly. No problems here either.

                    Endurance: 3.5/5
                    I won't say it made me want to workout longer than usual, but it did make the end of my workouts feel more manageable. I didn't notice much of an increase in physical endurance, but definitely better mental focus and drive, which might even be better.

                    Strength Increase: 4/5
                    Did I feel 40% stronger? Idk, what does that even mean? Should I be lifting 40% more weight? Doing 40% more reps? I really can't figure out why any company would quantify a claim like that, but I definitely think Amino Build helped me move more iron than usual. And if I didn't increase the weight, what I was lifting felt lighter than usual. Maybe it was just placebo effect, but the extra load on my muscles will result in real (and not placebo) gains, which is all that matters.

                    Other Adverse Side Effects: 5/5
                    None at all.

                    Overall: 4./5
                    I've used a few different free-form BCAA and Intra supplements before trying Amino Build, and one of my biggest gripes about most of them is how their flavor tends to linger in the shaker even after you wash it once or twice. The daily life of any given shaker I use goes something like this. Mix Pre-wo, drink pre-wo, mix intra, go to gym, drink intra, go home, add more water, go to work, drink water, add more water, etc. Is it gross that I reuse the same shaker all day without washing it? Don't know, don't care, but imagine mixing an intra in some water then still kind of tasting it after you've put 100+ ounces of water through that shaker. Anything that watered down is going to taste terrible and don't even get me started on the smell of day old intra. Amino Build solves that problem by not hanging out in the tiny little crevices in plastic shakers. A+ for that; good work MT.

                      It has a great profile to start off with and the taste is pretty good it did take a little getting used to though. and It has almost a vanilla like smell to it. But it mixes fairly easily leaves a little foam but no biggy. I do however wish that it didnt require two scoops to get the amount of aminos I'd like if they could make it just one big scoop that be fine by me but that's not to big of an issue really. I would suggest this to anyone trying to mix it up or for first buyers of aminos great product.

                        I got a tub of this, wasnt to big a fan of it. I was super excited for this flavor because i love apple. But found out this really tasted nothing much like it, it was more of a chemically taste apple compared to alot of others I have had.
