Product Overview





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.*

  • 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.*
  • 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 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.

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.

Great aminos. Mixes immediately. I love throwing a scoop Or two into my gym gallon and it really delivers great nutrients for my stamina recovery and growth. Love betancourts products. Always reliable and deliver what the promise. Definitely recommend

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.

How I ran it: I started with 1 scoop intra/post workout but then jumped to 1 thru out the day at work and 1 post workout. Profile: 9 It starts as a 4:1:1 ratio of Advanced Water Soluble BCAA Blend,L-Leucine 4000mg, L-Isoleucine 1000mg, L-Valine 1000mg, Glucose & VO2 Max Blend 2100mg, L-Taurine, L-Glycine, N-Acetylcysteine and more!!! Effectiveness: 9 I took 1 scoop of Pure Amino as intra workout on training days. It did really help me. It kept my stamina high and gave me the urge to work out longer. Recovery between the sets was phenomenal. I never really felt tired or sore the next day. Taste: 8 I had the fruit punch, which tasted like sipping on a lil kids drink. Just put 1-2 scoops and shake but it give a min or 2 for the foam to dissolve.Then sip on that bad boy!!! Value: 9 For $26 on BB for 28 servings at .93 each is a damm good deal. Overall: 9 I really like this product.As I said, It taste great and worked well for me. It didn’t disappoint me. Betancourt to me is known for their quality,so you can’t go wrong with them. Give it a try you wont be let down. Wish i could have put more time into this because its worth it!!!

HARD TO CHOKE DOWN! I like Betancourt products for the most part but OH MY GOD this taste awful. I had to add coconut sugar just to stand it. As far as the effectiveness its ok, it has a decent BCAA ratio but nothing special when you consider products like Xtend, Blox and numerous other bcaa products that have great ratios and taste good.

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

The flavor of this was awful. I usually can choke a supplement down, but this was nearly impossible. I took one sip and had to dump it out. Mixed well, but I just couldn't get past the flavor!

Very good amino acid product, with a few extras thrown in. The way I ended up using it most of the time was 1 scoop pre-workout, usually mixed with a stim pre-workout product, then one scoop during my workout. I believe it contributed to some really good workouts and recovery was great for the duration. 2 scoops pre and one scoop intra was very nice. Pure Amino is advertised as a "BCAA endurance & recovery drink mix". I'd say it delivers. You can't really go wrong, a very good BCAA product that tastes decent and uses natural flavors and colors. Taste is so/so, but drinkable.

This product tasted ok and was manageable to drink so it didn't bug me that much. I experienced a lot more energy and endurance in the gym while using this product. I didn't really believe the whole "BCAA" hype where people consuming it during there workout to act as a lactic acid buffer, but after taking this product it definitely made me reconsider. I absolutely fell in love whith how fast I was recovering from using this stuff. Definitely recommend!!!!
