Introducing

ALPHA AMINO

Cellucor Alpha Amino Cellucor Alpha Amino

Amino acids may sound like something out of your 4th grade science book, but as the precursors to protein, they are at the very core of athletic performance.

When you’re knee deep in sweat and the dreaded feeling of fatigue sweeps over your entire body to threaten your training, you can reach for a towel, or you can choose to push further with Alpha Amino.

Endurance

Hydration

Recovery

Upgrade Your
Aminos, Improve
Your Performance.*

Just as you’re working diligently every single day to improve your health and fitness, we work alongside you, improving our products so that you can keep raising the bar.

We’ve tailored this new version of Alpha Amino to include a well-studied 2:1:1 BCAA ratio for optimal performance in addition to 11 essential amino acids. An integral part of the Alpha Amino formula are electrolytes, which help keep your body hydrated and ready to tackle any challenge.

Why Are Electrolytes In A BCAA Supplement?

You can’t perform your best if you’re dehydrated and depleted of important minerals. Hydration is an underrated but key component of optimal performance, which is why we’ve upgraded the Alpha Amino formula to include BetaPower. It is a natural and scientifically studied ingredient that improves hydration, protects against cell stress during intense activity, and even boosts physical performance– especially strength, power and muscle endurance.*

Be The Alpha
On Post-Training/
Non-Training Days.

After a grueling workout only two things matter: replenishment and recovery. Replenishing lost minerals and electrolytes while fueling your muscles with aminos can help fight muscle breakdown during recovery.*

When you’re not training or recovering, you can still reap the benefits from Alpha Amino. When water just won’t cut it, don’t reach for a sugary sports drink, grab some Alpha Amino for a flavorful, sugar free way to hydrate.

I love this product! It is funny how you notice the affects of something when you dont have it! SO hydrating! Unfortunately you have to be cautious with your flavor choices....pink lemonade is disgusting. I thought that I would be safe tasting a new flavor but NOO no..and bodybuilding surprised be with their return/exchange policy. Basically I cannot return this for free OR exchange it. I would have to pay basically what it cost to buy to return it and then turn around and use my "store credit" to buy another flavor. I am more disappointed though with BB.COM because their fast shipping, promotions, marketing,etc is awesome, I really assumed their customer service would be, too. I am sure its somewhere in the fine print, but of course I didn't read the return policy beforehand, I am sure many people do not. Like I said, definitely surprised at this and super disappointed. Guess I will suffer with this chalk tasting BCAA.

This is an awesome recovery/hydration product! I had calf cramping due to both muscle fatigue and dehydration, so I started to use this for the electrolytes instead of Gatorade. No sugar or calories is great! Love the amino acids & L-glutamine in the mix! My recovery is so much quicker after a hard workout! My muscles used to be sore for a few days if I changed up the routine, but now the soreness goes away super fast! And so far the cramps have stayed away, too! Love the fruit punch & icy blue razz, but the mixed berry was waaay to sweet for me! I usually mix 1 scoop in 16 oz water. Two thumbs up!!

I love this stuff. I only take it maybe once or twice a week and not once or twice as day per the label, but when I do take it I really notice it (pretty much other than PWO the only supp I can actually tell it's working right away). I mostly take it after playing basketball on days that I have to lift a few hours later. It works really really well for re-hydrating. WAY more noticeable than gatorade. 1 scoop of this stuff makes me feel basically totally hydrated without being bogged down in sugar. 32oz bottle of gatorade doesn't have near the effect. Plus I feel MUCH better during my workout having taken this stuff versus not taking it. I'm not saying it replaces gatorade and all it's benefits, but for rehydrating and recovery after a hard workout, this stuff is great. I had 2 free samples of this stuff that I thought worked really well, and glad i finally pulled the trigger on bought it. I still take my PWO a couple hours after this product. Maybe someday I'll start taking it on all workout days, but for post heavy sweat workouts, it's fantastic.

I received a sample of this product so it's hard to gauge recovery effects off a single serving, but it definitely seems like a good amino supplement, and I like the added electrolytes. Sports drinks can be a little much when working out, so mixing this with a bottle of water makes it a good intra-workout supp. It says you can use as little as 4fl oz, but I prefer it watered down a bit more. I wasn't a fan of the lemon-lime flavor though, it does have a lemon-lime taste, I'm just not a fan of those types of flavors.
