Whether you’re looking to stimulate faster muscle growth, recover more rapidly from exercise, become more resistant to fatigue during a grueling workout, or just benefit from additional amino acids in their most absorbable form to support aging or a vegan, vegetarian, or ketosis diet, Kion Aminos essential amino acids has you covered.*

Essential amino acids are just that: essential. Your body can’t produce them on its own and yet they are crucial for supporting and maintaining the muscular, skeletal, enzymatic, nervous and hormonal systems of the body.* All of these systems need to be running optimally if you're hoping to get to sleep faster, promote muscle synthesis, enhance recovery from exercise, support optimal cognition, support your immune system, digest properly, and much, much more.*

Your body generally gets amino acids from the protein you consume as food. But your body’s amino acid utilization from common protein sources is often less than 50% of their content, with the rest being excess calories and waste. About 48% of egg protein is utilized by your body, less than 32% for meat, poultry and fish, less than 18% of whey and soy protein, and only 1% of branched chain amino acids are utilized by the body.

The amino acid utilization of Kion Aminos is a whopping 99%, meaning your body is actually absorbing and utilizing the essential amino acids it needs.* Plus, Kion Aminos are formulated in the exact, scientifically validated proportions needed for maximum utilization and absorbed by the body within twenty-three minutes.* So if you’re running from the gym, in need of a quick energy boost, staving off hunger pangs, or in the middle of a long workout, you can easily give your body the support it needs – and fast.

And yes, this means you get all of the essential amino acids, but without actually having to prepare, chew, digest or engage in any other stressful or inconvenient way of getting your protein. Don’t take this the wrong way: of course, we’re all about eating high-quality, nutrient-dense, tasty foods like steak, eggs, and nuts, but when you’re in a situation that requires you get your protein fast and you get it absorbed even faster, Kion Aminos is the perfect solution.


So what’s inside Kion Aminos?

Kion Aminos is an essential amino acids (also known as EAA’s) supplement that is 99% utilized by the body for protein synthesis.* No other form of protein comes close! The ingredients contain eight essential amino acids, perfect for omnivores, Paleo dieters, vegans, vegetarians, and ketosis support.

Kion Aminos contains:

  • Tryptophan to encourage the release of important neurotransmitters and hormones for mood and sleep, such as serotonin and melatonin.
  • Lysine, which, if deficient, can result in a deficiency in niacin (Vitamin B), as well as slow connective tissue repair.
  • Methionine to supply sulfur and other compounds required by your body for optimum metabolism and growth.
  • Valine, which is needed for muscle fiber firing, tissue repair, and for the maintenance of proper nitrogen balance in the body.
  • Leucine, which stimulates muscle protein synthesis and may be the major fuel involved in anabolic (tissue building) reactions.
  • Isoleucine, which is important for blood sugar regulation, muscle development and repair and energy regulation.
  • Threonine, which is important for antibody production, immune system activity, and can be converted into glycine and serine.
  • Phenylalanine, which stimulates the release of neurotransmitters and hormones such adrenaline and noradrenaline, which are necessary substances for optimum activity of your central and peripheral nervous systems.

With each amino acid performing a variety of functions within your body, you want to ensure you have enough of them at the ready and in the proper ratios. Kion Aminos provides this in both tablet and powder form.

Kion Aminos tablets contain one gram of essential amino acids per tablet, with NO binders, fillers, stearates, coating or dye. Just eight essential amino acids formulated to be in the perfect ratio for your body's absorption and utilization. And there is only 0.4 of a calorie per tablet.

Kion Aminos powder comes in a delicious cool lime flavor that is 100% all natural and sugar-free. The included five-gram scoop allows you to easily portion your serving that dissolves easily in water or your favorite drink.

As a dietary supplement, we recommend that you take five grams (five tables or one scoop) of Kion Aminos daily. As an exercise aid, take five grams thirty minutes prior to physical activity and repeat every two hours of exercise. For maximum absorption, take Kion Aminos twenty minutes before or one to two hours after other dietary protein and fat.

With so many benefits, such convenience, and the fact that these amino acids are essential to your body, Kion Aminos are a superb addition to just about any diet.

So try Kion Aminos today and propel your performance and vitality to new heights!

    Great product, you need to put the powder in small packages for backcountry hunting. I can’t stand the tablets and it’s nice to get some flavor when I’m the backcountry.

    Im interested in this product but didnt see what ratios the BCAAS are in the tablets. Can someome let advise?

    • Team Kion

      Hi Ary, while we can’t disclose the exact formulation, Kion Aminos are aligned with the MAP (Master amino acid pattern) and contain all eight essential amino acids – the exact building blocks needed to support and maintain your body’s systems – delivered in the exact proportion needed for maximum utilization.

    I remember listening to one Ben’s podcasts and him saying something along the lines of, if you do a workout without EAAs and then do the workout with the EAAs you will notice a huge difference. I decided to test this and OMG! It was night and day. My endurance was up, my strength was up, and my recovery was also significantly increased. This product will definitely be a regular for me.

    BCAA vs. Kion Aminos-

    I have tried different BCAA products over the years and never felt the benefits as boasted by the providers. Then I heard Ben ask to put them to the challenge compared to his new Kion Aminos. At 54 years old, I play hockey and grapple and I can say Kion Aminos work better hands down, less soreness, quicker recovery and a little more gas in the tank during these events.

    Big fan of the Amino powder!

    1) Noticeable strength increase during my workouts;
    2) Satisfies appetite during late morning or afternoon hunger;
    3) Taste is subtle, but is enjoyable. Which I appreciate as most Amino or BCAA supplements taste Jolly Ranchers and seem too good to be true.

    Con’s (both of which are more so me vs. product)
    1) Could use a bit more of a kick after early morning consumption;
    2) I rip through the 30 servings real fast. Although well spent, this can get pricey.

    Love it though, thanks!

    I take amino acids for three scenarios; 1. Before an early morning endurance session when I don’t want to eat. 2. After a hard session and I’m not going to eat right away. 3. Sometimes before bed if it was a hard training day To support my recovery while I sleep with no calories. I’ve tried 2 other aminos that didn’t have loads of artificial colors and flavors but this one is by far the best. It’s not sweet, it has the right ratio and bioavailability which is crucial when taking any supplement and it’s moderately priced. The main benefits I’ve felt with this amino is preserving lean muscle during endurance sessions, energy and appreciate suppression. This is top quality.

  7. Team Kion

    Hi Chuck, Kion Aminos contain 30 servings per container. How long each container lasts depends on your usage. Kion Aminos are a very versatile supplement and have many uses. You can refer to this Cheat Sheet to gain a better understanding of how much you will potentially use.

    5 stars for the tablets and 3 for the powder. I do agree with a previous review posted by another customer that the taste of the powder is not great. The tablets however have been great in several instances including extended fasts. As always, I know I can trust the label which is so important to me. Thanks Ben!

    Im not usually one to use supplements but as a highly active person, Ive always had a hard time maintaining muscle from my strength training because I also love endurance pursuits. Thought Id give this a shot and I am loving it! Its incredibly convenient, clean, and tastes great. Its perfect for fueling when you know you need something but don’t want to weigh down digestion from a meal. I wanted to try it out before subscribing, and lets just say ill be subscribing!

    I use this product daily in my training drink. I mix it with fresh squeezed lemon juice, creatine, taurine (sometimes electrolytes) & crushed ice. The stevia in the product relieves the sour taste of the lemon. So refreshing. I look forward to trying more Kion products because I have faith in the research Ben conducts to provide us the best products available. It is slightly pricey but I am looking for optimum health so I will continue to use this product. Thanks Ben. Love your commitment & I have learnt so much valuable information from listening to your podcasts.

    Just starting out with this product. Recovery time after workouts seems shorter. Very happy with my results so far

  12. Rated 4 out of 5


    I can’t really tell if it is having any effect, but I have no reason to complain either. I am trying to get some protein without putting more strain on my digestion, liver, kidneys etc. I am wondering…Does this still have to be processed by the kidneys or liver?

    Really amazing product! I get automatic shipments for these aminos. They have helped me with better muscle development and recovery already. Also really useful to get me through a fasted workout and focus better. 🙂

    Have been a subscriber for several months now and have not had an issue with delivery at all. I find this product helps keep me satiated between meals without any stomach issues. Love this product and would recommend it over any essential amino acid supplements on the market. Thank you for making a clean and effective supplement!

    The only issue I had was with timely delivery on my first shipment but each one after has been arriving promptly

    This is an amended review. It would seem that my initial order got caught up in the Christmas mail rush and delayed my order. I was in contact with Amber and she was awesome in helping find my order. The customer service has been great! Now for the product itself. The aminos are pure aminos. That is great for absorption, but I have one minor complaint and that because these tablets are pure compressed aminos there is tablet breakage in the bottle and a lot of product “dust.” All-in-all this is the type of product you would expect from Ben.

    Cassandra Gill

    Taste isn’t amazing, but it is natural and grows on you. As an athlete, I really like these full spectrum amino acids to make sure I’m consuming enough protein while competing in endurance sports and working out intensely. As a college student, the upfront price may be expensive, but buying meat from whole foods costs me more per serving.

  21. Rated 3 out of 5


    I have no doubt the quality is superb based on Bens standards and reputation. I’m excited for the benefits. However, it is sweetened which I don’t like. Any way to get an unsweetened option?


    • Team Kion

      Thanks for the feedback! I suggest you try the tablets as an alternative to the powder that we flavor with stevia.

    Where’s histidine?Why doesn’t this have all 9 essential AAs?

    • Team Kion

      Thank you for your comment. There is debate on whether histidine is an essential amino acid because the body can produce it on its own. It seems best classified as semi-essential because adults can typically produce enough histidine from other amino acids in the liver to support the body’s daily needs, however children must obtain histidine in their diet. It is easily obtained in foods such as meat, dairy and some grains.

    Way overpriced. The original product, MAP, is 27.50 on Amazon. Sorry Ben, it’s hard to support you when you Jack up the price!

    • Team Kion

      Thanks for the feedback, Mitch. We do our best to use the best raw ingredients, the highest manufacturing standards, and the most trustworthy partners. Our prices reflect that, not an attempt to gouge customers. Also, some of the cheaper brands found on Amazon typically contain 30 fewer tablets than Kion Aminos.
