GLYCINE TO PROMOTE GLUCOSE FORMATION FOR MUSCULAR ENERGY
NAC & SELENIUM COMBO FOR OPTIMIZING PERFORMANCE
4:1:1 RATIO OF BCAAS & ELECTROLYTES
Pure-Amino™ attempts to improve upon the typical 2:1:1 BCAA ratio by providing a 4:1:1 ratio focusing on L-Leucine; the BCAA responsible for anabolic signaling for optimizing muscle growth.† The BCAA's can be considered to be the most important of the Essential Amino acids for muscle performance as they promote muscle tissue repair. Recent research on NAC: N-Acetylcysteine, has shown that it promotes the protection of muscle cells during exertion by promoting Glutathione. Selenium also promotes Glutathione as well and the combination of these two muscle cell protecting ingredients have been shown to be endurance and possibly hormone boosting performance aids.Pure-Amino™ can be taken at any time during the day:
- Pre-exercise: for a non-stimulant boost in exercise performance and a delay in fatigue.
- Intra-workout: can be taken during training to promote muscle repair or a delay in fatigue.
- Post-exercise: the 4:1:1 BCAA blend featuring L-Leucine will promote recovery from intense exercise.
- Also supplement with Pure-Amino™ at any time during the day in between meals to promote an anabolic state.

- Health Notes
Amino Acids OverviewAmino 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 Amount WhyLiver Cirrhosis 18 grams daily of L-ornithine-L-aspartate as L-Ornithine-L-Aspartate[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 Multivitamin[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 Acid[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.
