What in the world is a senior citizen (women of-a-certain-age) doing playing around with amino acids?
But, again, me? Why did I think I'd give the Amino HD1000 (especially a huge bottle such as this) a whirl? Well, I have heard that the elderly (such an awesome word), the seniors, and the ladies of-a-certain-age can also use amino acids to help take care of their own declining muscle mass even without all the vigorous exercise.
See the quote from a reputable website below:
Is it beneficial for basically non-exercising seniors to take amino acids? (the following quote is from ---- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2730227/)
Now that I've been using them awhile, here are my observations.
- Sometimes I "taste" the capsule for a few minutes after taking it or them if I take two. But this is entirely because I tend to "taste" large capsules or pills - especially if it is a natural product. This goes away in a few minutes, so that is fine with me. I can handle that.
- I think I am already seeing a bit less of a tummy. I don't know why this is or what is taking place and it may simply be my imagination, but I like less tummy!
- I don't see any muscles building up and don't really expect to. I am truly hoping that these amino acids will help to preserve the muscle mass I currently have and perhaps regenerate some that I have lost. Am I dreaming? I don't know, but it is a happy thought, isn't it?
- Of note: without researching this somewhat online (in addition to the previously quoted NIH.gov article) as to whether or not it is plausable or good for a senior citizen to consume this product, I would not have participated in this product review.
Branch Chain What? AminoHD 1000 BCAAs launched at Amazon recently: Don't let the name fool you. Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein.
- Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are "essential" amino acids, meaning that the body cannot synthesize them - BCAAs must be consumed through high-protein foods and/or supplements.
** Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) make up 35% of essential amino acids in muscle protein. **
Dieting Down? Use BCAAs to retain muscle mass.
Bulking Up? Use BCAAs to help build muscle mass.
BCAAs are best taken any time the body has high protein requirements and low whole food intake.
- Ideal intake times are: PreWorkout, IntraWorkout, Post-Workout, Between Meals, During Intermittent Fasting, and Before Bed.
You won't wake up after 1-day looking like a juiced up NFL linebacker.
But it just might give you the extra edge to keep and create that lean muscle tissue we're all after.
- Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are shown to Support Muscle Building and Exercise Recovery!
- AminoHD 1000 is now complete with Diet Standards "MuscleDelivery Matrix" - Combines a trusted 2:1:1 Ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine.
- BCAA's + Veggie Capsules = PURE! (This is the most pure form of BCAA's you can take in a capsule.) - There are No Fillers and No other ingredients - NO: Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Glycerin, Titanium Dioxide, or "Pharmaceutical Glaze" (whatever that is). Just pure BCAAs!
- BCAA in Capsules: No more messy powders, sugars (real and fake), and terrible taste. Just Amino Acids that bypass your liver and directly metabolize in your muscles!
