You can’t build muscle without Aminos.
Are you doing functional exercise to build muscle? Then you need Amino to get the most out of every WOD. Your body literally can’t make muscle without branch chain amino acids (BCAAs), and they’re depleted every time you workout. Supplementing with Amino by Driven® Nutrition gives your body the essential muscle building blocks it needs to both turn on and run the anabolic process.
How Driven® Nutrition’s Amino Works
Essential BCAAs Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine promote your muscles’ uptake of fuel, boost muscle synthesis, suppress muscle breakdown, increase power and reduce fatigue—allowing you to go harder, longer.
BCAAs and muscle-building
Resistance training triggers muscle-protein synthesis, signaling your body to grab proteins to construct new muscle tissue. Supplementing with BCAA’s during and after resistance training can increase these anabolic signals, and that’s what you need to get ripped.
The importance of Leucine
The essential amino acid Leucine is the single most powerful amino acid involved in muscle synthesis. Leucine is what turns on your body’s muscle-creation assembly line (known as mTOR). Leucine also promotes glucose intake into cells for the first 45 minutes after consumption, and induces the release of insulin, both of which support the anabolic state. AMINO is formulated with the ideal ratio of two parts Leucine to one part Isoleucine and Valine.
Add to Leucine the BCAAs Isoleucine and Valine, plus Glutamine (another amino acid that promotes muscle synthesis), plus some fuel to power the assembly line, and boom! You’re in mTOR—muscle protein synthesis.
A better, faster source of BCAAs
Yes, you can get BCAAs from animal proteins like chicken, beef and fish. But your body has to digest those whole foods, and break them down to the molecular level, to make the BCAAs available in your bloodstream.
The fast-acting BCAAs in Amino are immediately available to your muscles because they totally bypass the digestive process. When you supplement with Amino, the pure, clean blend of ready-to-use aminos are absorbed quickly and directly, giving you a virtually “instant-on” switch for muscle building.

“Makes water taste so good during the workouts. It mixes really easy.”
Marcela Perea – Owner CrossFit 100
“Amino is great during my workout, the Lemonade flavor is refreshing and a nice pick me up during or after a training session. It’s also great on days when I go to the gym in the early morning as an alternative to water throughout the day.”
