What is the Best EAA for muscle recovery? Well, that's a loaded question. One that cannot be answered with any integrity. The best? That all depends on a variety of variables, starting with your goals. In this video, we break it down for you so you can educate yourself to help Amino Acid supplement users better understand it's mechanisms so that you too can join the "best" EAA for recovery conversation.
Xeno & Xeno Energy is an amino acid supplement that is inclusive of all Essential Amino Acids, and Branched Chain Amino Acids. Additionally, it contains hydrolyzed collagen peptides and hyaluronic acid to further support joint health, and repair of myo-facial tissue. It also has the amino acid Taurine with a comprehensive electrolyte blend to promote hydration.
WHY WOULD I TAKE IT?
If you work out hard and get sore muscles, Xeno’s job is to repair, restore, and reduce the amount of time needed for recovery. If you want to bounce back quicker and stronger from your most strenuous workouts with less soreness and downtime, this is why you would take Xeno. Even if you’re looking to promote more recovery on off-days, Xeno can be consumed throughout the day to further perpetuate an anabolic state.
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Xeno works on three specific levels. First, it contains taurine and electrolytes to promote intra-cellular muscle hydration and prevent cramping. Secondly, the combination of hydrolyzed collagen peptides and hyaluronic acid are needed by tissues at the muscle surface, the fascia. Then we have developed a combination of all 20 amino acids, called Myo-Seq. Myo-Seq is a precise amino acid ratio based off the amino acid sequence of skeletal muscle tissue, which is perfect for muscle protein synthesis because it provides the right amino acids, in the right proportions needed to build muscle as quickly and efficiently as possible.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?
Xeno is best taken 45-60 minutes prior to exercise. You can either take ½ scoop or 1 full scoop dissolved into 16oz (500mL) of water, and mix vigorously until foaming and allow the foam to settle.
