Amino Complete from NOW offers a blend of 20 essential and non-essential amino acids:
- L-aspartic acid
- L-glutamic acid
It was formerly called Amino 1000, but they have recently changed it to Amino Complete. It has many uses as a sports supplement, preserving muscle, enhanced recovery, and can make up for an incomplete diet of protein and BCAAs.
For my purposes I took this supplement while on a
low-calorie diet to ensure that my body was getting all the essential amino acids and wasn't breaking down muscle tissue to get it elsewhere. Amino acids are more quickly absorbed than protein, so I would also take this immediately after a workout and then have a shake when I got home.
Another great use I found for this was in between weights and cardio. Since my routine involved doing weight training followed by cardio I didn't want to run with a stomach full of protein shake, so naturally Amino Complete was the prime choice. I also didn't want to be burning calories from the shake; I wanted to burn calories from fat.

This was a great choice as I decreased BF% without decreasing too much LBM. In fact if anything, I have gained LBM while using this supplement combined with a good diet of high protein and low carbs.
At the beginning of the cycle I could bench 225 for a 1 rep max, now I am pushing 235lbs for 4 reps. Also, biceps have increased and strength and legs have increased substantially as well. For a reasonable price, this supplement is very effective and because it has been researched so much it has been suggested that it really works... unlike some of the other supplements out there.
Amino acids also play many roles in general health as they may help fight many health conditions. Although I don't have any of these conditions I wouldn't mind a little bit of extra protection from them just in case. They are also an essential role in maintaining healthy skin.
From a bodybuilding perspective this might be a good thing to carry in your gym bag for extra long workouts, in between weight training and cardio, or if you don't have time to get protein immediately in you.
For a good price you can get about 30 servings of these pills for 10$. It is great for cutting and also has mass-building effects. Also for all around health this stuff is great. If you want something that works, then Amino Complete brings it to you.
I can tell you from my experience that it has spared me significant lean body mass and I will continue to use them from now on.
