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
