Product Overview

PURE-AMINO

BCAA ENDURANCE & RECOVERY DRINK MIX

4:1:1

RATIO
BCAA'S

Pure-Amino™ is the most advanced All-Natural BCAA Endurance & Recovery Drink Mix available. It improves upon the typical 2:1:1 ratio of BCAA’s by providing a 4:1:1 ratio (Leucine 4g, Isoleucine 1g, Valine 1g) based on the fact that L-Leucine is the most important Amino acid when it comes to anabolic signaling for muscle growth and tissue repair (recovery). Pure-Amino™ also features the muscle anti-oxidant NAC: N-Acetylcysteine which has been shown in research to aid the protection of muscle cells during exertion by promoting Glutathione. This is also what is believed to be responsible for NAC’s ability to boost aerobic endurance in some athletes. To further promote Glutathione, Selenium is used as well; these two muscle protecting ingredients (NAC and Selenium) have been shown to boost endurance and possibly hormone levels as well.*

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS:
  • NAC & Selenium Backed by Research to Boost Aerobic Endurance.
  • 4:1:1 Ratio of Water Soluble BCAA’s that mix CLEAR
  • No Artificial Sweeteners, Colors or Filler.*
WHEN CAN I TAKE PURE-AMINOTM?
  • 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.*

I have no idea how this Amino worked as I only used it twice and could not get past the horrible taste. It mixes well but I preferred to drink straight water. Bullnox fruit punch has a whole different flavor and a 10 in my book for a pre-workout. Hopefully they can figure it out because I have to assume the benefits are there.

The taste was fine for me. I did notice that BB's product wasn't the same as the product I bought at Vitamin Shoppe, the watermelon was new and improved taste. The one from BB was NOT new and improved so I hope the taste isn't too bad. I would make sure you don't make the same mistake as me, and not noticed till I opened up my shipment. I don't know why BB would still have the old product? I didn't call them either I just went with it.

If I could rate the flavour of this as a zero I would, I cannot get past the terrible taste of this product. I cannot drink it and will never buy this product again, as nice as it is to have a limited amount of additives and flavourings this product is unbearable. The ingerdient profile is okay but there are many many other products with better ingredient profiles that taste much better and are roughly the same price as this which I only bought as a buy one get one deal. Save your money and look for something else.

While this product seemed to work as expected the taste of the grape flavor was extremely bad. I had to actually force myself to finish each serving which makes it harder to take as directed. I will be trying another flavor & hope to see the full effects

I usually really enjoy Bentacourt Nutrition Products, however this product, the Pure Amino, is something I cannot support or recommend it to others. I have never had a product upset my system as much as the Pure Amino by Bentacourt. This was harsh and disruptive to my digestive system; and as a nutritionist, I will not put my clients on this product.
