Working in a supplement store I have the opportunity to try and learn about new product that we get in stock. A product in particular that I believe is worth mentioning and reviewing is the "AMINH2O" by Advanced Nutrition Systems. In this article I will cover why you should use BCAAs, the ingredients in the product, taste/mixability, and the price.
If you have been to a gym (pretty much any gym), you have seen bodybuilders with gallon jugs full of a colored substance. They drink this substance throughout the work out, and sometimes down even more right after the work out, and with good reason. According to this study, taking amino acids post-work out decreases muscle soreness, increased power output, and increases muscle recovery.
The ingredients in AMINH2O is by far one of the best I have seen in an amino acid supplement. Coming from someone who used to buy from ample amounts of various supplement brands, this by far takes the cake! Not only do you have the amino acid 3:1:1 ratio blend of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine at a 4 gram dosage....but you also get 4 grams of the "Recovery And Hydrate Blend" that gives you L-Citrulline DL-Malate 2:1 (Shown to improve performance). Betaine Anhydrous, L-Glutamine, Taurine, and Coconut Water Powder.
AMINOH2O is by far the best tasting amino acid I have ever tried! I absolutely love the cherry limeade flavor out of the cherry limeade, watermelon, and blue raspberry options. Also, it only took a few times stirring the shaker cup around for the aminos to be fully blended. No blender ball, no endless shaking, just stir and it's ready.
Where Can I Find It? How Much?
The price of AMINOH2O is sold at a low price of 39.99! That's BCAAs, citruline, betaine anhydrous, glutamine, taurine, and coconut water powder all in one!
Out of all the amino acid supplements I have tried, I really like AMINOH2O the most. The taste and mixability cannot be beat, the ingredients are far more/better than those of common "amino acid complexes", and the price is pretty low in stores. Only downside...wanting to drink it all day. AminH2O is a solid product.
