CytoSport Monster Amino is a branched-chain amino acid formulation for lean muscle growth and recovery.
To enhance lean muscle 4.5 grams of L-Leucine have been added which helps stimulate muscle protein synthesis at the cellular level. This means that your body is more efficient in utilizing the protein you eat from your food or drinking whey shakes.
Unique to this BCCA supplement is the use of PepForm which are Leucine peptides made from a proprietary process that binds free-form leucine to leucine peptides isolated from whey. This makes for a more concentrated and effective performance product.
Key to any branched-chain amino product is the ratio between the three amino acids. CytoSport have used a 6:1:1 which is 6 parts Leucine to 1 part Isoleucine and 1 part Valine.
Monster Amino is NSF Certified which guarantees that you are receiving nothing but the best quality, free of any banned substances. NSF screens supplements for more than 200 substances banned by most major athletic organizations.
The most effective time to use this is either 10 – 20 minutes before your training or to drink it during your workout which will improve the utilization of the amino acids from your post-workout shake.
