What Is It: This is the first amino acid product that will help burn fat with the ketogenic diet with BHB Salts, MCTs, BCAAs
How It Works: BPI Sports’ Keto Aminos™ can help not only support your keto diet efforts, but also counteract some of the withdrawal symptoms that can come with eating less carbohydrates. As your body adapts to your new diet, the short-term side effects can include excessive thirst, frequent urination, lightheadedness, fatigue and a foggy mental state. In other words...the keto flu. These flu-like symptoms are due to electrolytes imbalance including sodium, potassium and magnesium.The Beta-Hydroxybutrate salts (BHB salts) in Keto Aminos™ help with replenishing the loss of electrolytes so you can stick to your workout routine and stay on track. Plus, it even helps you get more out of your workouts, while consuming less oxygen for a greater output in the gym with less expenditure, pushing your fat loss efforts even further.
Aside from getting you “keto-adapted”, Keto Aminos™ is designed for accelerated fat loss, lean muscle building and optimal recovery. Besides the BHB salts, the newest ketogenic diet-friendly BPI Sports formula features a stimulant-free blend of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and aminos that allows your body to utilize fat as an energy source, for more weight loss success. The essential amino acids L-Citrulline and L-Glutamine are also part of the Keto Aminos™ ingredients blend to specifically assist with helping you preserve lean muscle mass, minimize muscle breakdown and increases muscle pumps for better workouts.
Use: Take one (1) serving (2 scoops) blended into 12oz of ice cold water, either before or during workout, or as directed by a qualified healthcare practitioner. On non-training days, take one (1) serving (2 scoops) first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, or as directed by a qualified healthcare practitioner.
MCTS (MEDIUM CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDES)
Some studies have shown that medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) found in oils such as coconut oil can help in the process of excess calorie burning, resulting in weight loss.*
BHB is crucial in helping you save your hard earned muscle mass and not burning it away as fuel during workouts. By helping to maintain already healthy blood sugar levels within a normal range, BHB supports your body to be less likely to turn to muscle and glucose for energy during workouts and will instead turn to using cellular energy and ketone bodies produced from fatty acids. This is extremely important for when you are dieting and in a caloric deficit.*
ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS (AS OLIGOPEPTIDE ENZYMATIC TECHNOLOGY)
Essential Amino Acids are not produced by the body and must be added to your diet via food or supplement. They help improve and increase muscle recovery, lean muscle building, performance and protein synthesis.*
GLUTAMINE (AS OLIGOPEPTIDE ENZYMATIC TECHNOLOGY)
Glutamine has been a staple with athletes for years because it helps support recovery and prevents muscle breakdown.*
CITRULLINE (AS OLIGOPEPTIDE ENZYMATIC TECHNOLOGY)
Improved blood flow to increase nitric oxide levels and muscle pumps, to promote endurance and performance.*
