USN AMINO STIM
All-In-One: Boost Muscle and Athletic Performance, Augment Mental Focus and Mood, AND Build Muscle with this results-proven Energy-Enhancing Amino Acid Stack
Written By: Dr. Matt Gaston Villanueva, Ph.D., USN Athlete and Ambassador
USN’s AMINO STIM is truly an all-in-one supplement, containing zero Calories, zero carbohydrates, and consisting of 4 primary ingredients: 1) CarnoSyn®; 2) Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s); 3) Theacrine (TeaCrine®); and 4) PhytofareTM. Combined, these high-quality ingredients work synergistically to pack an extremely powerful energy-, muscle performance-, AND functional athletic performance-enhancing punch.
CarnoSyn®: Push Past Your Physical Limits
CarnoSyn is the highest-quality beta-alanine on today’s market. In fact, research is piling up, providing substantial evidence on how effective beta-alanine (a singular amino acid) is at enhancing muscle strength, power, endurance, growth, and, possibly, even fat loss. In terms of a mechanism of action, in the human body, CarnoSyn is taken up by muscle fibers and combines with the amino acid histidine to form carnosine (a di-peptide). Carnosine provides nearly all the benefits associated with CarnoSyn, and having higher levels of carnosine in the body increases its performance by amplifying the muscles’ buffering capacity of hydrogen ions, which are produced during high-intensity exercise bouts (e.g., repeated reps and sets of weight lifting). Therefore, carnosine’s affects, ultimately, allow your muscles to contract with more strength AND for longer time periods of muscular work.
Lastly, evidence also suggests beta-alanine acts as a neurotransmitter, increasing nerve firing in the central nervous system. This appears to be one reason why many individuals experience a boost in mental alertness and energy from beta-alanine supplementation, an affect similarly attained through caffeine supplementation.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s): Fuel Your Working Muscles, Stimulate Muscle Growth, and Protect Your Hard-Earned Lean Muscle Mass
Decades and decades of strong, applied research have proven that the BCAA’s (i.e., valine, isoleucine, and, particularly, leucine) stimulate muscle protein synthesis and the synthesis of the cellular machinery responsible for carrying out the processes of muscle protein synthesis. Therefore, BCAA’s not only increase the rate of muscle protein synthesis, but they also increase cells’ capacity for muscle protein synthesis!
BCAA’s also help to reduce the rate of muscle protein breakdown. With a basic understanding of the equation for muscle growth – muscle protein synthesis > muscle protein breakdown = muscle growth – clearly, by increasing muscle protein synthesis and, simultaneously, decreasing muscle protein breakdown, you powerfully combat the loss of lean muscle mass and enhance your potential to make gains across time.
Importantly and lastly, the BCAA’s in AMINTO STIM are free-form, requiring no digestion, and are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream upon ingestion. They spike blood amino acid levels faster and to a much greater extent than peptide-bound amino acids (e.g., those found in whey protein) and, thereby, have a more immediate impact on increasing muscle protein synthesis and negating muscle protein degradation. This, alone, makes AMINO STIM an ideal and crucial component of a well-rounded supplementation regimen for professional athletes, bodybuilders/competitors, recreational athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and the like, year-round.
Theacrine (as TeaCrine®): Harness Explosive Energy for Optimized Performance and Gains
Theacrine is a purine alkaloid that is structurally very similar to Caffeine, and both of these substances, in addition to the L-Theanine found in AMINO STIM, elicit potent stimulatory affects on your central nervous system, which lead to elevations in concentration, mood, and fat breakdown.
Unique to USN’s AMINO STIM, TeaCrine technology is a Game-Changer! Research provides preliminary evidence indicating Theacrine activates similar signaling pathways as Caffeine. However, stimulation with Theacrine does not appear to lead to any tolerance over a time frame where Caffeine would normally show tolerance and resultant diminished effects. This suggests the possibility that the human body either does not have a tolerance, or may have a reduced tolerance, to Theacrine, which can translate into sustained, long-term, and MAXIMUM effects and results!
PhytofareTM: Exploit Green Tea Catechin Complex’s Most Powerful Benefits
Phytofare catechin complex, which is derived from green tea phytonutrients, contains approximately 2.2 times the amount of catechins (by weight), compared to generic green tea extracts! As with the generic extracts, the dominant catechin in Phytofare catechin complex is EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), which has been the subject of numerous investigative studies testing its potential use as a therapeutic for a broad range of applications, which include: HIV, cancers, malaria, neuro-degradation diseases, weight/fat loss, and anti-aging.
In addition to the solid science and evidence-based practice that fully supports the AMINO STIM formulation, you can easily and safely incorporate AMINO STIM into your supplementation regimen at any and/or all of these time points:
- First-thing-in-the-morning, upon waking.
- In between main (e.g., solid food) meals.
- Pre-, Intra- (during), and Immediately Post-Training, for both weight lifting and cardio sessions.
Long-Term Results: AMINO STIM facilitates Max Focus, Intensity, Performance, and Recovery, each and every time you train, making it a potent piece of the formula for living a healthy, fit lifestyle and experiencing permanent changes in your physique and athletic performance. And, it will elicit mind-body affects during training that you can FEEL and that cannot be achieved through the use of any other amino acid stack/energy supplement on the market. I recommend starting with a dosage of one rounded scoop and, then, adjusting your intake from there, based on sensitivity.
