This amino acid and the amino histidine combine in the body to form the molecule carnosine. Research shows that muscles with higher levels of carnosine can generate stronger muscle contractions and maintain better endurance with less fatigue. Getting beta-alanine throughout the day leaves your muscles topped off with carnosine to keep your energy levels optimal.
Arginine is an amino acid that is readily converted to nitric oxide (NO) in the body. NO is a potent vasodilator, which means that it gets more blood—and, therefore, more nutrients like amino acids, glucose, and oxygen—flowing to the muscles. This leads to enhanced energy levels and better blood flow to the brain for better mental performance.
Essential AmiN.O. Energy Chewables provide the most critical B vitamins—thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), and B12. The B vitamins are critical cofactors in helping the body convert the food you eat into energy. So getting a quick dose of these can help you produce natural energy when you need it most. And because they are water soluble, getting them in multiple doses throughout the day is the best way to keep energy levels steady.
This potent antioxidant quenches free radicals that are produced in your body to prevent them from causing damage to tissues, including muscle cells and nerve cells. These free radicals also break down the NO that your body produces from arginine. So having a dose of vitamin C can keep NO levels up, helping maintain good blood flow to your muscles and your brain. Vitamin C also can keep your immune system running optimally to help prevent you from getting sick and run down.
In addition to important amino acids and vitamins, Essential AmiN.O. Energy Chewables also deliver a dose of caffeine. This central nervous system stimulant works to make you more alert, boost cognitive function, and increase energy. Research shows that getting smaller, more frequent doses of caffeine throughout the day enhance brain function and alertness better than fewer larger doses.
Three Optimum Nutrition’s Essential AmiN.O. Energy Chewables deliver an effective dose of all these ingredients for better energy, alertness, and brain function anywhere and at any time of day.
