Finding the right supplement, especially the right BCAA supplement, is one of the best feelings in the world. It means you have one less problem!

This is especially true when you consider there are enough BCAA products on the market to fill Xanadu.

So to help you gauge expectations and hype for Dymatize’s upcoming Amino Pro, here’s a preview of what to expect.

Amino Pro Pump

Dymatize Amino Pro
I like that they added 1 g of the amino acid citrulline in here to help boost nitric oxide production and increase muscle pumps. Citrulline also has the ability to recycle arginine back into the body.

So if you’re taking a pre-workout with arginine, combining it with the citrulline in Amino Pro is going to give you an even better pump.

Taurine Time

In addition to the BCAA’s in Amino Pro, another great single amino acid you’re going to get is taurine (2 g). Taurine promotes cell volumization, which allows you to draw more nutrients into cells.

In addition to better nutrient delivery, taurine enhances muscle growth and recovery by improving protein synthesis and preventing muscle cramps. [1]

BCAA Benefits and Breakdown

Amino Pro Reviews
BCAA supplements are well researched, and really one of the best products to take if you’re looking for something to improve your overall performance.

Branch chain amino acids are heavily utilized during muscle contraction. By supplementing with them during your workout, studies show it boosts strength, endurance, and even promotes better muscle growth and recovery. [2]

Each serving of Amino Pro has 2.5 g of BCAA’s in the vaunted 2:1:1 ratio that’s used in studies of BCAA’s.

Most experts recommend taking at least 5 g of BCAA’s during your workout, so you should plan on taking 2 servings of using Amino Pro if you use it as an intra-workout supplement.

Amino Pro Taste, Price, and Availability

I thought the lemon lime flavor was pretty refreshing. This is a BCAA product, so keep in mind that there’s going to be foaming at the top, and it won’t mix completely.
Amino Pro is available at most online retailers, and a 30 serving container is currently selling for about $20.

Amino Pro Final Thoughts

Dymatize’s Amino Pro ultimately has a decent price point. You’re going to want to use 2 scoops at a time to get a full 5 g serving of BCAA’s, but since a 30 serving container is only $20, this puts the cost per serving at about $1.30, which is average for a BCAA supplement.

The lemon lime tastes excellent, and I enjoyed drinking it during my workout. Moreover, the extra citrulline helps with blood flow and nitric oxide production. Amino Pro is a very serviceable intra-workout or amino product that you can stack with anything.
