CAN I USE AMINO SWITCH™ INSTEAD OF PROTEIN?

AMINO SWITCH contains ALL 9 Essential Amino Acids and is rapidly absorbed. This makes it a perfect alternative to protein shakes or food immediately after training.

AMINO SWITCH™ contains all 9 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 absorbed verse the amount of amino acids supplied. In other words, how much protein (amino acids) is consumed verse what is excreted or wasted. AMINO SWITCH™ provides the highest possible NNU of 99% vs Whey at around 16%.
CAN I USE AMINO SWITCH™ DURING TRAINING INSTEAD OF A STRAIGHT BCAA SUPPLEMENT?
Yes. AMINO SWITCH™ contains all three (3) BCAA’s plus the additional six (6) Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s) required by the human body. In fact Tipton et. al., has performed research on both BCAA's and EAA's and his conclusion in a recently published paper (circa 2017) suggests EAA's provide 50% greater results than using BCAA's alone.
WHY HAVE YOU ADDED SCHISANDRA TO AMINO SWITCH™?
Schisandra chinensis is a key ingredient in AMINO SWITCH™. This berry has been used as an adaptogen for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. Adaptogens by nature allow our bodies to respond more positively and adapt faster.
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 nutrient utilisation.
