Why Should I Take Purus Labs AminOD?
The importance of amino acids, concerning muscle protein synthesis, has long been accepted and validated; however, which exact amino acids at what specific ratios are the more important questions, along with what total dosage amount and when should it be consumed. We utilized a meta analysis on over 10 years of ergogenic amino acid research to bring you the most comprehensively anabolic amino acid composition available. It even outperforms whole protein.
Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) have consistently outperformed whole protein and other mixed amino acid formulas regarding stimulating Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS) and maintaining a positive net protein balance (NPB). Succinctly, Purus Labs AminOD utilizes 7 of the 10 EAAs, based upon the 6g composition derived from Tipton, Borsheim, et al. data and strategically merged with the ratios from Pasiakos’ studies using heightened L-Leucine content. It is devoid of L-Methionine due to life extension purposes.
Why Is AminOD Better Than Other Amino Acid Products?
Whole protein, consumed either pre or post exercise, was proven inferior at enhancing muscle amino acid uptake and muscle protein balance when compared to EAA + Carbohydrate (CHO) solution taken at either of the same time-points (Tipton 2007). Consuming this 6g mixture 1 and 2 hours post, without CHO, was also shown to be 2x more impactful on stimulating net muscle protein balance when compared to another 6g blend of EAAs and Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAAs), much like whole protein (Borsheim 2002). This study was powerful as it proved there is no need for NEAAs regarding muscle protein synthesis (MPS), only EAAs. It also let us know we could drop the 35 CHO, as it proved they had no added benefit on MPS. Furthermore, EAAs, not NEAAs, were shown to individually stimulate MPS when administered in bolus dosages (Smith et all 1994), further sustaining that NEAAs are irrelevant.
The research speaks, a carefully designed EAA formula is more anabolic than whole protein...and a ton cheaper! The 6g EAA composition, used by multiple researchers as depicted above, served as our base structural formula for Purus Labs AminOD, as it was designed specifically to mimic muscle tissue amino acid content (Borsheim, et al. 2002) and had consistent human, oral research surrounding it. We chose to enhance the Leucine content based on Dreyer’s work showing Leucine enriched EAA + CHO formula, consumed post resistance training, increased mTOR activation leading to greater MPS (Dreyer et al. 2008). We used another, more current, EAA composition to determine Purus Labs AminOD’s amino acid ratios, with the goal of enriching the L-Leucine content within our dosage. This particular 10g EAA composition with 35% Leucine elicited a 33% greater MPS response compared to another 10g identical composition with 18.6% Leucine. The other EAAs within our composition are reduced parallel to this study’s ratios, to allow 35% Leucine enrichment (Pasiakos 2011).
What's In Purus Labs AminOD?
How to Take Purus Labs AminOD:
As research provides evidence for effectively taking a serving of Purus Labs AminOD pre, intra and 1-2 hours post workout, mix one serving in 8 oz. cold water in any of the above instances to maximize muscle protein synthesis. For an anytime flavor splash, mix one serving of Purus Labs AminOD in your water and enjoy as needed.
