Default Purus Labs AminOD - Review





Purus Labs

https://www.puruslabs.net/

AminOD


Everyone knows how important Amino Acids are for protein synthesis and every one knows how much research and testing Purus Labs puts into their supplements. Well if you don’t you should. Purus Labs puts more time into their products then most any other company out I have seen. I have yet to receive a supplement from Purus Labs I didn't like. The only downside to AminOD is Dosage. Most will need to take two scoops to receive recommend Daily dosages.

Amino acids are essential for muscle growth and recovery. The good thing about Amino Acids is the timing of them. There really isn’t a bad time to use them. Research has shown you can take them anytime and receive great benefits from them. Purus Labs makes sure to use only proven and well research doses in their supplements and AminOD is no different.



When researching Amino Acids and timing. I came across a research article that tested amino acid uptake before and after working out. It was a very small controlled group, but had interesting results. This might be very helpful to some people; if you’re burnt out on Pre-Workouts, need a break from stims or want to add some punch to your pre-workout. Taking Amino Acid beforehand increased muscle phenylalanine concentrations by 130% and remained elevated 2hrs after working out.

“These results indicate that the response of net muscle protein synthesis to consumption of an EAC solution immediately before resistance exercise is greater than that when the solution is consumed after exercise,”

If you’re looking for an Amino Acid Supplement look no farther, Purus Labs is top notch and will not disappoint you.

The flavors Blue Razz Lemonade, Jolly Watermelon and Strawberry Limeade are all pretty good. I like Strawberry Limeade the best out of the three. When mixed with water and shaken it only takes a few shakes and everything is dissolved. Even after sitting for a bit there is nothing settled at the bottom.

Is 2.1 g. leucine really enough to have an effect?

That's the lowest it can be and be effective. It is recommend to get 8g or more a day spread out in doses, but every study seems to say something a little different. I just take it post workout at 2 scoops or I'll just take one along with a Protein shake. I have also seen Amino Dosage based off body weight. At roughly 175lbs 4.8g is the recommended Does... At 200lbs it's 5.4g and at 220lbs its 6g.

I like to keep a EAA or BCAA on hand all the time, but don't use as much as I would like or use Daily due to the cost of most of them. I normally buy a couple tubs when they go on sale. You are right thou about cost. Most are around $20-30 for 30 servings (avg.) But when you need to take 2 scoops. That's $60 a month. I see a lot of buy 1 get 1 free online. Those make it a much better deal. Then if your like me and don't use them everyday. 2 tubs can last a long while.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
