What we think

Amino Complex is a melange of amino acids designed specifically for sports and training related activities. It contains a high concentration of BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids), stimulating muscle protein synthesis (building lean muscles). BCAAs are essential amino acids, meaning your body cannot produce them itself and must receive them through nutrition and supplementation.

This slightly sweetened mixture of citrus-y goodness will help you recover more efficiently after workouts, decrease muscle soreness and ensure your muscles are reaping the rewards of your efforts in the gym or on the mountain. Amino acids also promote mitochondrial biogenesis – the body's internal production of energy, reducing your fatigue.

HOW WE USE IT

We like to take one scoop with 6oz of water once to twice daily.  Sometimes we like to mix it in with food and other things like smoothies.

I recommend this product

Love It!

First thing in the morning, I put the required amount into a small jar with a lid and just enough water to shake/mix - then swallow. No need to put in a beverage. This product makes me more aware, focused and energized.

I haven't been using this enough to see if there's a difference in performance, but it's got a nice flavor that isn't too overpowering.

It's kind of a pain to use since you need to spoon it into a beverage but the product itself is great. I wish there was a capsule form or individual packets, so transporting it would be easier and it would already be measured out.

Our trainer wanted us on a amino complex to "enhance nitrogen retention and increase muscle mass, to prevent protein catabolism during prolonged exercise, to promote muscle glycogen resynthesis following exercise, and to prevent sports anemia by promoting an increased synthesis of hemoglobin, myoglobin, oxidative enzymes, and mitochondria during aerobic training. So, we put one scoop in our gym water bottle. I'm pushing more weight and less fatigued at the end of the workout - so unless there is another mitigating factor I'm saying this product works for me.

I've been using this for a couple of weeks. It seems like it helps with recovery, and gives me energy if I use it pre-workout. The taste is good if you like the flavor of lemonade. I do use other Thorne products as well. Side note: Make sure you clean your bottle really well if you're adding it to a water bottle. The taste is hard to get out and I've noticed that if you don't rinse it well enough, the next time you drink regular water it tastes like drinking chlorine water from a pool. Not exactly the best taste to have in your mouth.

The Thorne Aminos are the most effective BCAA complex I have taken. I take them during resistance training workouts as well as before and after runs and I generally feel more energy due to faster recovery and lower levels of fatigue throughout my workout. One complaint is the flavor - it is a decent taste at first but the longer the drink sits, the less tolerable the taste becomes; however, I chose Amino Complex Berry by Thorne Research for its physiological benefits and not the taste - so 5 stars for an effective formula!
