GEN-TEC AMINO LEAN
300G ORANGE (60 SERVES)
GEN-TEC NUTRITION’S AMINO LEAN is a premium blend of instantised,
free form amino acids with anti-oxidants; Vitamin C and Green Tea
extract for individuals with a goal of supporting a positive nitrogen
balance whilst reducing free radical damage. With added Chromium Pic
AMINO LEAN is also ideal for maintaining a higher lean muscle mass to
body fat ratio.
AMINO LEAN is best consumed either before fasted cardio, during
exercise or throughout the day. AMINO LEAN has been naturally flavoured
and coloured to produce a tasty, refreshing beverage to be enjoyed
whilst supporting your goal of a lean healthy body.
Protecting lean muscle is achieved via the use of amino acids such as
branched chained amino acids. Branched chain amino acids play a
critical role in stimulating protein synthesis and support a positive
nitrogen balance which allows effective muscle repair and maintenance to
take place (Rogero and Tirapegui, 2008). During periods of fatigue, the
levels of branched chained amino acids in the muscles can drop,
especially during prolonged endurance events. Consuming BCAA can
mitigate the symptoms of fatigue during exercise and assist in recovery
post exercise (Choi et al., 2013).
Glutamine is an amino acid which primary functions are to increase
protein muscle repair and provide the cells of the immune system with
energy (dos Santos et al., 2010). Athletes consume glutamine to protect
and help the immune system recover from intense training and decrease
the risk of upper respiratory tract infection (Sacks, 2003).
During periods of calorie restriction, mental focus can take a
significant hit, especially when hard training is involved. The adverse
effects from this can be overcome by supplementing tyrosine and
caffeine. Tyrosine is an amino acid which manufactures neurotransmitters
like dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (O’Brien et al., 2007).
Tyrosine is observed to increase performance on stress-sensitive
attention tasks which would otherwise lead to a decline in cognitive
(mental ability) capacity (Mahoney et al., 2007). During acute periods
of stress there is a heightened use of tyrosine-dependent
neurotransmitters which is a contributing factor to the reduction in
motivation, attention and working memory, therefore consuming tyrosine
can increase “brain power” under times of moderate-heavy stress (Mahoney
et al., 2007).
Caffeine not only combats fatigue but it aids in the release of
endorphins which reduce the perception of pain during exercise (Sökmen
et al., 2008). In addition, like tyrosine, it stimulates the production
of neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine which improves
alertness and vigilance during periods of fatigue and sleep deprivation
(Goldstein et al., 2010).
In order to manage body fat levels, ‘AMINO LEAN’ has been formulated
with caffeine derived from green tea extract and the Epigallocatechin
gallate (EGCG) present in green tea which aids fat loss (Sinclair and
Geiger, 2000). Together they can shift substrate utilisation during
exercise to increase the amount of fatty acids used for energy
(lipolysis) and supress the body’s use of stored glycogen for fuel. This
increased mechanism of fatty acid mobilisation is ideal for athletes
who aim to keep the body fat levels low without sacrificing lean muscle
mass. Overall the effects of caffeine and green tea extract increase
thermogenesis and mobilisation of fats which aids in the reduction body
The addition of arginine alpha-ketoglutarate and glycine increase
vasodilation of blood vessels, allowing a more fluent blood flow of
nutrients to the muscle cells, thus aiding nutrient transport (Botchlett
et al., 2013). Furthermore its use in combination with the above
ingredients ensures that ‘AMINO LEAN’ provides an all-round approach to
supporting optimal body composition.
