NO NONSENSE. JUST PROVEN INGREDIENTS.
Branched-chain-amino-acids (BCAA's) are essential in muscle repair and recovery. When consumed in a 2:1:1 ratio, the main amino acids - leucine, isoleucine and valine have been scientifically shown to support muscle growth and repair. They also act as an energy source to help fuel your muscles during prolonged activity and endurance style training. Amino Z BCAA 2:1:1 is suitable for people who want to optimise their performance and maximise muscle recovery.
What you can expect from Amino Z BCAA 2:1:1
• May assist in recovery
• May enhance performance and energy level during exercise
Below we have answered some commonly asked questions about this product.
What does the research show for BCAA supplementation?
The research points to two main benefits of branch chain amino acid supplementation.
1. BCAA's may increase lean body mass. One study found that in trained men given 14g BCAAs daily for eight weeks alongside a routine weightlifting plan, the consumption of BCAAs promoted fat loss (2.2% body fat) and promoted lean mass accrual (4.2kg) to a greater extent than 28g of whey protein (2.1kg lean mass and 1.2% body fat) and 28g carbohydrate (1.4kg lean mass and 0.6% body fat). 
2. BCAA's may reduce fatigue during exercise. A study was conducted on the fatigue levels of elite male racers. The finding concluded that those supplemented with a high amount of BCAAs reported a reduction in physical and mental fatigue.

What are unflavoured BCAAs made from?
Amino Z's BCAA's are derived from fermented starches.
Where are Amino Z's BCAAs 2:1:1 made?
Amino Z manufactures and packages all our products in our own manufacturing facility here in Sydney, Australia.
We source pharmaceutical-grade amino acids from China, as do the majority of other supplement companies.
When should I consume BCAA's?
As far as BCAA's are concerned, there are several occasions throughout the day where they can be beneficial. Some of the most beneficial times are before, during or right after your workout.
What are the main benefits of BCAA's?
There are two main benefits of BCAA's.
Increase protein synthesis (i.e. muscle tissue repair). BCAA's have been shown in clinical research to promote protein synthesis, rebuilding and repairing damaged proteins (i.e. muscle cells) in the body.
Prevents muscle breakdown. BCAA's can also help to avoid exercise-induced muscle breakdown. This helps reduce muscle soreness, enhance recovery time and improve muscle growth and thus strength over time.
Which allergens are processed in the Amino Z manufacturing facility?
Milk, fish, tree nuts, gluten and peanuts.
Amino Z conducts thorough, regular and systematic cleaning and anti-cross contamination measures to ensure your product is safe to consume.
Why is this product so much cheaper than similar products on the market?
Many other brands incur a high degree of costs associated with producing products. It is not uncommon for a product to be produced by a third-party manufacturer and then shipped (or imported) to a wholesaler. The wholesaler then sells to a retail store, who on-sells to the customer. The end result is that often four separate businesses are taking profits at each stage (the brand itself, the manufacturer, the wholesaler and the retailer).
We take a very different approach which allows us to keep our cost structure down and we pass those savings on to you, without sacrificing product quality.
We have our own purpose-built manufacturing plant located in Sydney Australia and we sell directly to you. This eliminates all additional parties from the process, thereby eliminating a lot of unnecessary costs.
The significant cost savings we incur allow us to invest into high quality ingredients while still offering a significantly cheaper final product.
I haven't tried this product before. What if I don't like it?
