INTRA-WORKOUT PERFORMANCE ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS AND RECOVERY FUEL
Every time you begin to train you are presented with a unique opportunity. Under normal circumstances, you have relatively little blood flow going to your muscles. But once you start to train, blood flow increases exponentially to the exact thing you’re trying to change, your muscles.
So why would you send the blood empty? To do so would be to miss a huge window of opportunity to supply nutrients to the muscles. You wouldn’t send a plane from LAX to Sydney without passengers, right? Amino Matrix takes full advantage of this opportunity and sends a fully loaded plane.
Amino Matrix represents a blend of meticulously curated EAA aminos and other synergists to maximize protein synthesis, decrease muscle breakdown, provide energy substrates, and increase blood flow. Taken together these ingredients will drastically increase your ability to sustain performance and reduce post-workout soreness.
ACHIEVE AN ANABOLIC STATE WITH EASE!
By using the most advanced recovery amino blend available, you can bounce back from workouts quicker and safer, while promoting more muscle growth.
Amino Matrix is a powerful dietary supplement that effectively improves muscle function and accelerates recovery during exercise. This supplement functions by:
Amplifying protein synthesis
Minimizing muscle breakdown
Providing ample energy
Elevating blood flow
It contains all the essential amino acids (EAA), and other vital nutrients, required to support muscle recovery by utilizing the hyperemia effect during workouts.
Unlike competitors who promote mixing EAA and BCAA supplements (branched-chain amino acids that include leucine, isoleucine, and valine), Amino Matrix uses only EAA aminos, which have critical metabolic signaling properties beyond their value as building blocks of proteins. Leucine, a master signaling molecule—triggering the process of protein synthesis—but it needs other EAAs to send the call. Taking Leucine with BCAA has long been thought of as a safe way to increase muscle mass, however, when increased levels of BCAA exist within the blood, it reduces the synthesis of serotonin, which diminishes mood and stimulates hunger. BCAA is also linked to cardiovascular disease.
At Optimum EFX, we want you to train smart and clean!
To optimize your workout, you need to understand why and how to incorporate aminos, particularly EAAs, as they play a vital role in preventing muscle breakdown. As you work out, your muscles receive increased blood flow, which brings important amino acids to aid in their growth. During normal protein turnover, the body is constantly ping-ponged between using energy to build protein (anabolic static) and then expelling energy to break it down (catabolic state). By taking recovery aminos, you ensure that these amino acids remain in your muscles and continue to build.
Amino Matrix contains Citrulline Malate, which also helps with blood flow, boosts physical output, and reduces muscle soreness by eliminating toxic ammonia in the urea cycle.
When we exercise, our ammonia levels increase, which signals muscle fatigue and reduces energy creation. Citrulline increases the conversion of products like ornithine (which disposes of ammonia) and L-arginine (which widens blood vessels), as it is more bioavailable. Thus, Citrulline's benefits are twofold: it gets rid of toxic wastes in the blood while catalyzing the breaking down of these toxic wastes into something usable, nitric oxide.
L-Aspartic Acid is an EAA amino that boosts endurance and works alongside Citrulline to remove toxic ammonia from the body.
When you use a leucine-rich EAA blend during training, it makes it difficult for Tyrosine to get into your brain. Tyrosine is necessary for making dopamine, which helps with motivation and neural drive and can improve how you perform in sports. We've included Tyrosine in Amino Matrix to counteract this.
Betaine Anhydrous, also known as trimethylglycine, is a recovery amino that possesses lipotropic properties that boost the oxidation of lipids. As a methyl donor EAA amino, it plays a crucial role in the production of various brain chemicals, leading to improved mood, energy, well-being, and cognitive abilities. Betaine is indispensable in critical biochemical processes such as lipid and DNA metabolism, and acts as an osmolyte, regulating fluid levels in the body. This, in turn, increases signaling for muscle growth.
