AMINO SWITCH™ is a dairy and lactose free Essential Amino Acid (EAA)supplement that contains all 9 EAA’s at the Perfect Human Ratio. This ratio is designed to help SWITCH ON muscle recovery and SWITCH OFF muscle breakdown. At SWITCH NUTRITION™, we use the Master Amino Acid Profile (MAP)ratio to maximise Net Nitrogen Utilisation (NNU) This means AMINO SWITCH™ will provide you with the greatest amino acid absorption and utilisation.
We have also added essential Co-Factors, L-Tyrosine, Balanced Electrolytes, Vitamins and Schisandra Chinensis to AMINO SWITCH™. This powerful combination may help reduce fatigue, enhance recovery, regulate cortisol, support energy and improve performance.
Build muscle and burn fat without the extra calories using AMINO SWITCH™.
AMINO SWITCH . faq’s
IS AMINO SWITCH™ A COMPLETE PROTEIN?
Yes and no. AMINO SWITCH™ contains all the essential amino acids found in a complete protein source. However, it contains fewer calories. AMINO SWITCH™ can be used as a low-calorie alternative to protein shakes or protein foods.
WHAT IS NNU & NPU?
NNU (Net Nitrogen Utilization) or NPU (Net Protein Utilization) is the same thing. Nitrogen is used interchangeably with protein. NNU or NPU is the ratio of amino acids converted to human proteins (muscle, enzymes, hormones etc) to the amount of amino acids supplied. In other words, how much protein (amino acids) is consumed verse what is excreted or wasted. AMINO SWITCH™ is designed using the MAP (Master Amino Acid Profile) which provides the highest possible NNU of 99% absorption.
WHY IS THE MASTER AMINO ACID PROFILE SO IMPORTANT?
It took researchers more than 30 years to provide us with an understanding of the Perfect Human Ratio (PHR) of Essential Amino Acids. Now with this information we can maximise the benefits of muscle building and recovery without excess amounts of calories, stress on our body, acidity or wasted protein.
For example, many athletes trying to build muscle will consume a minimum of 2g of protein per kg of body weight per day. For a 100kg male this is 1.4kg of protein a week (7 days). This same athlete will not put on 1.4kg of muscle a week because much of the protein is wasted or converted to energy. AMINO SWITCH™ would require a fraction of this amount to provide the same results because it is 99% utilized with only 1% wastage. This gives you much better bang for your buck.
CAN I REPLACE PROTEIN WITH AMINO SWITCH™?
Yes, you can. One (1) serve of AMINO SWITCH™ is equivalent to 35g of Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) or 60g of meat, fish or poultry. Therefore one (1) serve can replace one protein shake or meal for most people.
CAN I USE AMINO SWITCH™ DURING TRAINING INSTEAD OF A STRAIGHT BCAA SUPPLEMENT?
Absolutely. AMINO SWITCH™ contains all three (3) BCAA’s plus the additional Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s) required to help remodel muscle and boost your metabolism.
HOW WILL AMINO SWITCH™ HELP ME BURN FAT?
If you are on a calorie restricted (hypocaloric) diet it is important to provide your body with enough essential amino acids from protein to prevent muscle breakdown and loss. However, not too much that the calories from the protein prevent you burning fat. AMINO SWITCH™ has a significantly higher bioavailability and NNU than normal protein, but with much fewer calories (0.2 calories).
L-TYROSINE IS NOT AN ESSENTIAL AMINO ACID. WHY HAS IT BEEN ADDED TO AMINO SWITCH™?
L-Tyrosine is involved in the production of 90% of your neurotransmitters, including adrenalin and dopamine. Adrenaline is responsible for increasing alertness and energy which may help you to train longer and harder. Dopamine is involved in promoting thoughts of motivation and suppressing thoughts of fatigue, allowing for a lowered perceived effort. In other words, AMINO SWITCH™ may help you push harder for longer and feel less fatigued during exercise.
WHY HAVE YOU ADDED SCHISANDRA TO AMINO SWITCH™?
Schisandra Chinensis is a key ingredient in AMINO SWITCH™. It’s a berry that has been used as an adaptogen for centuries to promote vitality, energy, libido, endurance and reduce fatigue. Adaptogens by nature allow our bodies to respond more positively to stress and adapt faster. Therefore, if you stress your body by exercising the adaptive response is to build muscle, increase strength, enhance endurance and burn fat. This process is sped up with the supplementation of Schisandra.
Lowering cortisol is another benefit of Schisandra which may help to reduce muscle breakdown and allow for greater recovery. Also, Schisandra seems to improve your bodies response to caffeine, therefore helping your pre-workout or fat burner maintain its benefit. We are excited to be able to source one of the most highly concentrated 10:1 extracts to help support your goals.
WHY HAVE YOU ADDED ELECTROLYTES AND CO-FACTORS TO AMINO SWITCH™?
It is critically important for peak performance that you maintain hydration and correct electrolyte balance. In fact, a 2% drop in water may result in a 20% drop in performance. At SWITCH NUTRITION™ we set out to create the perfect amino supplement. To achieve this, we added a natural balance of highly absorbable electrolytes to maintain hydration of your cells. We also added Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin C to help support amino acid metabolism and utilisation.
HOW WILL AMINO SWITCH ASSIST WITH KETOSIS?
When on a ketogenic diet you need to be careful of how much protein you consume as it can be converted to glucose and bump you out of ketosis. However, because Amino Switch is 99% utilised there is only 1% (0.2 calories) available to be used as energy. This means AMINO SWITCH™ provides all the muscle repairing benefits of protein without the additional calories that can be converted to glucose. If there isn’t additional glucose from protein, then you are more likely to stay in ketosis while using AMINO SWITCH™.
IS AMINO SWITCH GLUTEN, LACTOSE, SOY FREE AND VEGAN FRIENDLY?
Yes. One of the big reasons we developed AMINO SWITCH™ was to provide people with a NON-DAIRY, gluten and lactose free protein option that tastes amazing, is affordable and obtains results. Plus... we haven’t harmed any animals in the production of KETO SWITCH™.
IS AMINO SWITCH™ CALORIE FREE?
Not quite but its damn close. Due to the unique Master Amino Acid Profile, 99% of the amino acids are used by your body to create human protein. That leaves only 1% that can be used for energy. Generally, 5g of EAA’s @ 4 calories per gram is 20 calories but in AMINO SWITCH™ only 1% can be used for energy so it contains only 0.2 calories per serve.
HOW MUCH OF EACH INGREDIENT IS IN AMINO SWITCH™?
AMINO SWITCH™ like ALL other SWITCH NUTRITION™ products is 100% open label. This means all active ingredients are clearly illustrated on the tub or sachet. No hidden fillers and no proprietary blends. Just 100% quality.
IS AMINO SWITCH™ A HIGH-QUALITY PRODUCT?
AMINO SWITCH™ is formulated based on the leading research available and manufactured in a HACCP and GMP certified facility. In addition to this we independently LAB TEST each batch for purity and potency. This process guarantees the highest quality product and provides the best results.
CAN I USE ANOTHER PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT IN ADDITION TO AMINO SWITCH™?
Absolutely. Due to the rapid absorption and high bioavailability of AMINO SWITCH™ we recommend using it before and after exercise. However, this doesn’t mean you should avoid other protein supplements or foods. In fact, you can have an additional protein shake after AMINO SWITCH™ post workout and it will be utilised more efficiently. AMINO SWITCH™ will turn on protein synthesis ahead of the protein shake consumption. Think of AMINO SWITCH™ as the key that starts your muscle recovery engine.
CAN I USE ANYTHING ELSE WITH AMINO SWITCH™ FOR BETTER RESULTS?
Absolutely. If you are attempting a ketogenic diet or trying to burn more fat we suggest using KETO SWITCH™. KETO SWITCH™ is an exogenous (external) BHB ketone supplement that helps you get into or stay in ketosis. BHB (Beta Hydroxybutyrate) has been shown to enhance cognitive function, lower inflammation, improve performance and much more.
THERMAL SWITCH™ or POWER SWITCH™ are great combined with AMINO SWITCH™ pre-workout to increase energy, boost performance, enhance strength, reduce fatigue and support muscle recovery while burning fat.
ADRENAL SWITCH™ is the perfect post workout partner for AMINO SWITCH™. With added L-Leucine, L-Glycine, Vitamins, Minerals and Herbs that will help SWITCH ON the recovery process ADRENAL SWITCH™ was made to stack with Amino Switch.
