Product Overview

MusclePharm AMINO1. Hydrate + Recover.



Amino1 Sport is the ultimate daily performance supplement with benefits for hydration, recovery, muscle fuel, and cellular energy. Specifically, Amino1 features ingredients such as Arginine Alpha-Keto Glutarate (AAKG), which helps to produce nitric oxide (N.O.) and widen the blood vessels to increase blood flow and nutrient delivery to the muscles. Secondly within the Cellular Energy & ATP Fueler blend, Amino1 Sport contains Taurine, the electrolyte regulator, ensuring a proper balance of these electrolytes is delivered to the muscle. The recognizable blend for this formula is the patented BCAA 3:1:2™ complex. The BCAA 3:1:2™ ratio takes 3 grams Leucine, 1 gram Isoleucine and 2 grams Valine. Leucine, the most dominant and fastest absorbing, not only breaks down into usable glucose, like isoleucine and valine, for the muscle, but also stimulates the release of Insulin, jumpstarting the anabolic process. The Recovery Matrix offers L-Glutamine, the most abundant amino acid there is, and responsible for repairing damaged muscle, L-Glutamine serves an excellent complement to the BCAA’s as it is delivered to the muscle at the time when it is most needed: during anabolism. Also within the recovery matrix are L-Alanine, beneficial for utilizing blood sugar as energy, and L-Glycine, which fights muscle degradation by boosting the body’s natural supply of creatine, as well as help deliver glucose to the muscle. Lastly, Amino1 Sport features the Hydration system of Coconut Water Extract which naturally provides electrolytes like sodium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorous to hydrate the muscles to prevent muscle breakdown, dehydration and cramping.

Amazing pre-workout especially for cardio days. The endurance boost it gives me helped me jump over a running plateau i was stuck at.

A lot of the reviews indicate that the flavor is terrible. I have tried almost everything on the market and this is by far the best in my opinion. It mixes well and doesn't have a strong, chemical taste. I especially like that it doesn't contain soy or artificial colors. I add liquid Vitamin D and a packet of Grape propel to mine. A squirt of a liquid flavor enhancer like Mio might be a game changer for a lot of the people who don't like the flavor. I have been using MP Amino1 Cherry Limeade for 5 years.

Cherry Limeade my butt! I want you to imagine the flavor of good ol' fashioned bubblegum. You know what I'm talking about, the pink stuff. Traditional flavor right? Now chew it for 30 minutes and then take that flavor and dilute it with 8-12 ounces of water. That is "cherry limeade" according to Muscle Pharm. And to make sure I wasn't losing my mind, I had three other people try it. They all noted it was disgusting and confirmed that it tasted like old bubblegum. I cannot speak for the other flavors but DO NOT BUY THIS FLAVOR!

Ive tried both flavors and they are absolutely terrible. They taste like ground up Tums. Super chalky and bland. Very disappointing for a company that otherwise makes good products.

I've orders this product a few times and the cherry limeade is the better of the two flavors. I've found that the flavor is best within a few minutes of mixing up....wait a bit and it starts to taste a bit odd. I do feel that I have more energy during a workout if I take this before, and I definitely recover faster (less muscle soreness/fatigue) if I take this afterward. Highly recommend.

This is a great product overall. But the taste of the Cherry Limeade is the stuff of nightmares. It's revolting. Absolutely horrendous. Do yourself a favor and get another flavor, unless you hate yourself, in which you should definitely buy the Cherry Limeade.

I don't know why everyone thinks this product tastes so bad, it is delicious and tastes like Kool-Aid! In addition to enjoying the taste, this supplement does not give me extreme headaches like comparable products and has really helped with muscle recovery.

This is an updated review for this product. MusclePharm has got it right with Amino 1 in terms of nutritional profile and taste, especially in Cherry Limeade. I am a little bit disappointed that they have discontinued this in the 50 serving size. I have purchased this a few times, and almost always in the Cherry Limeade flavor. This is probably one of the best flavors that MP has created, hands down, and will always be your go to once you try it. This mixes very easily. I prefer my BCAA’s more on the light side, so even with one scoop and 12 to 20 oz of water, this still has that great cherry taste. A bonus to this is that this particular formula keeps you hydrated. I have noticed that the price for this has gone up and they have discontinued the bigger sizes, but this is still a solid purchase overall. I haven’t tried Fruit Punch so I can’t comment on that flavor This would not be my first BCAA of choice, but I would recommend to others looking for a solid BCAA to take. I would purchase again.
