Amino VITAL® all-natural sports nutrition products help improve energy, focus, endurance and recovery

Raleigh, NC (January 4, 2016) – Successful golfers are easy to identify. They work harder – and smarter. They practice, train and recover, and they don’t cut corners. They demand the best - from themselves, their equipment and their nutrition products. They understand the science behind their game and their training, and they recognize what their bodies need to perform at the highest level. To meet the high demands of today’s top golfers, Amino VITAL® has developed a complete sports performance system specifically designed to fuel active bodies. Backed by more than 100 years of scientific research, Amino VITAL® offers a new era of sports nutrition today.

Amino VITAL® delivers five key amino acids crucial to enhancing an athlete’s performance - the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine and valine, plus glutamine and arginine. These amino acids have been incorporated into four optimal formulas, creating the Amino VITAL® Synergy System, which provides the perfect combination of components for each step of the performance process: energy, focus, endurance and recovery. Amino VITAL® has been perfected into an easy-to-mix powder that can be dissolved quickly in water, or taken on its own, to provide a great-tasting sports nutrition product.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. They are essential for muscle cell growth, repair and maintenance, as well as mental focus. They work faster than protein because amino acids don’t have to be broken down for your body to use, meaning they are absorbed more quickly into your system and start working faster during training or competition when your body needs it most.

Amino Vital products are formulated with the combination of the highest quality amino acids available to deliver quick and sustained muscle energy, fuel your mind for peak mental clarity, and support fast muscle recovery so you can train and perform powerfully day after day. Amino VITAL® has been helping athletes at all levels reach their peak performance for years.
