What’s in Max Effort’s Amino Recovery?
Salt (sodium chloride) helps regulate your muscle contraction and nerve function. It also regulates your body’s fluid levels.
Low sodium levels can cause dehydration, muscle cramps and even organ failure. Athletes may need to consume more salt to replenish that which is lost during exercise.
Depending on body shape and size, some people will need more salt than others. It’s generally important to keep your salt levels topped up after a heavy gym session.
Magnesium also plays a role in regulating your muscle contractions. Also, it blocks calcium, helping your muscles to relax.
If you don’t have enough magnesium in your body to compete with calcium, your muscles may over- contract, which can cause cramps or spasms.
Magnesium is, therefore, widely endorsed for the treatment of muscle cramps.
Potassium citrate is used to treat various kidney conditions because it can minimize the acid that’s present in urine.
Supplementing with potassium citrate helps improve your muscle function, as well as keeping a healthy blood pressure level. Additionally, potassium citrate promotes energy cell production in your body.
Potassium citrate also helps maintain water levels in your body, and even converts excess blood sugar into glycogen. This is extremely beneficial for athletes.
If you have the right amount of potassium citrate in your diet it can help to reduce body fat and, consequently, increase muscle mass.
Athletes use the amino acid glutamine to help with muscle repair and growth. Glutamine helps improve the protein synthesis rate within cells, which means that it helps increase muscle growth.
It’s also important for muscle recovery because it helps carry nitrogen around the blood and delivers it to muscles. If your body lacks nitrogen, it’s difficult to grow new muscle which is why glutamine is important for muscle repair after you work out.
L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine
Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). They’re also called essential amino acids because your body can’t synthesize them. You therefore need to include them in your diet.
Athletes take BCAA powders to improve exercise performance and to optimise muscle growth. BCAAs can also help reduce post-gym tiredness and even help you lose weight.
They’re mainly broken down in your muscles, rather than your liver, and experts believe that they help you produce energy during exercise. And, like most amino acids, your body uses BCAAs to synthesise protein and muscle.
Additionally, they help your cells use your blood sugar, enabling you to preserve the glucose stores in your liver and muscles.

A container costs $34.99 (about £56.60) and will give you about a month’s supply of 30 capsules.
