life time amino recovery supplement

Amino acids are something we often refer to as a “best-kept workout secret” because they’re an essential supplement to add to your workout routine if you want to make sure you’re building lean muscle and recovering well from your workouts. The reason it’s a “secret,” though, is because despite the proven benefits, we find it’s a supplement that many still aren’t aware or taking advantage of.

Amino acids are important protein-building blocks that your body needs in order to recover from hard workouts — and if you want to see progress from the time you put into exercise, then you need to make sure you’re also properly recovering from those efforts.

Delivering amino acids to your body through a dedicated supplement allows them to be utilized with a higher efficiency than whole-food protein or protein powders. The LTH Amino Recovery supplement is the go-to choice for our team of dietitians and trainers because it’s easily absorbed and gentle on digestion, is made with a blend of all the essential and conditionally-essential amino acids (including an ideal ratio of BCAAs), and tastes great without any sugar, artificial sweeteners or colors, or unnecessary fillers.

How Do I Use LTH Amino Recovery?

The supplement may most benefit those who are regularly exercising, seeking body-composition changes, experiencing soreness, not meeting their daily protein goals, losing muscle mass, suffering from gut issues, or having trouble digesting whole protein or protein powders. In addition to aiding in recovery, other advantages include promotion of a leaner physique, support for joints and tendons, slowed loss of lean muscle for healthy aging, decreased hunger, boosted mood and cognition, and dampened muscle soreness or DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).

Aminos are generally well tolerated, however, anyone with kidney or medical concerns should speak with their doctor before adding new supplementation to their routine.

The best time to use LTH Amino Recovery is immediately before, during, or after exercise. You’ll mix a serving of it into water (about eight to 10 ounces of liquid). You can also customize your dose by using one serving per 100 pounds of body weight. LTH Amino Recovery is also available in single-serving packets (each packet is equivalent to a one-scoop serving from the tub).

Additionally, the supplement can be used between meals for those who are at risk of losing muscle, such as those who are sick, injured, or aging. In those cases, its recommended use is one to two times daily.

LTH Amino Recovery comes in Cherry Limeade or Lemon Lime flavors and contains 10 calories per serving.
