Amino 12000 is a dietary supplement designed for competitive athletes and bodybuilders and that is manufactured and sold by the large supplement company, Weider. It is meant to assist people who are struggling to balance their diets to produce the results that they want, because as they work to drop their fat and cholesterol intake, they also tend to lose out on amino acids and proteins.
Through Amino 12000, Weider’s goal was to provide the amino acids (the building blocks for protein) to athletes and bodybuilders without having to resort to consuming the fatty foods that would work against their fitness goals.
Each Weider Amino 12000, not surprisingly, contains 12,000 mg of whey and milk proteins, in order to provide a user with all of the non-essential and essential amino acids that are required by the human body in order to be able to continue to produce protein. The official website for the product states that the use of this product stimulates the synthesis of muscle protein when it is used following resistance workouts.
The directions for this product recommend that 4 tablets be taken with breakfast, and that another 4 tablets be taken ahead of a workout. After the workout, another 4 tablets must be taken, with a meal. It should be taken with a glass of fruit juice or water and it is important to wait a few hours before or after taking any other medication, as it could have an impact on the way that those substances function.
The ingredients that make up this formula include: alanine, arginine, aspartate acid, cystine, glutamatic acid, glycine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, proline, serine, theonine, tryptophan, and valine. Each tablet is made up of 250 mg of casein, and 835 mg of whey protein isolate.
Before taking this product, it is highly recommended that a doctor be consulted. The reason is that it is not appropriate for everyone, and it could cause health issues if it is used by certain people. These include, but are not limited to, children, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and people who have an allergy or other health concern relating to milk derivatives. This product could also be problematic for people who have heart conditions.
It is meant to be a product that is used for only a short period of time. Even if it is appropriate for you, you should still consult a doctor before continuing its use for a period that is longer than 6 months.
