ACID 9 is a great tasting amino acid supplement that will help enhance muscle protein synthesis, leading to increased muscle growth and repair. Not only does ACID 9 taste great, but it includes the exact EAA ratio from industry leader Compound Solutions' AMINO9™ formula in a generous 7g dose.
Amino9™ is composed of a unique, clinically-substantiated blend of the nine essential amino acids. This amino acid blend contains what the body needs to optimize muscle protein synthesis (MPS). Amino9™ is designed to help bodybuilders, competitive athletes, and anyone leading an active lifestyle to improve strength and body composition.
People generally take amino acids to help induce muscle protein synthesis, especially during their workout window. Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS) is what is responsible for turning ingested amino acids (from protein or supplements) into muscle tissue. In order for your body to do this, it needs all 9 Essential Amino Acids (EAAs). These 9 EAAs include the well known Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) which include Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. Because ACID9 contains all 9 EAAs, it includes the qualifying amount of amino acids your body needs to gain muscle.
You could, however, it's important to ask why you would do this. While it's true that your body can source amino acids from circulating free amino acid pools, these pools are quickly depleted—which limits your body's rate of muscle protein synthesis (and by extension, muscle growth). In these conditions, your body's rate of muscle protein synthesis cannot exceed muscle protein breakdown.
