A lighter, faster, and more flavorful alternative to protein, Amino VITAL Rapid Recovery reduces the stiffness and soreness that slows you down so you feel better and bounce back quicker.
What are amino acids?
Amino acids are simply the building blocks of all proteins. By ingesting protein in its simplest form, you save your body a step in the digestion process, absorbing it more quickly than a heavy protein bar or shake, realizing the benefits more quickly.

Amino Vital® ships a sample of each batch to a state-of-the-art anti-doping research laboratory that has been designated by the BSCG. The laboratory analyzes the sample for over 160 substances that are banned by sports organizations such as the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the National Football League (NFL), and many other professional and amateur sports leagues. A product that bears the BSCG seal lets the customer know that the product has received BSCG Certification and that no banned substances were found above detection limits.
