Description

Description

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 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 two delicious flavors, mixed berry and cool lime, and 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 tablets 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!

FAQ

FAQ

  1. What are Kion Aminos made of?

    Kion Aminos are extracted from plant-based sources like beans and peas. Both the tablets and powder are free of binders, fillers, plant residues, sugars, yeast, gluten, soy, corn, wheat, rice, and animal products. Our Kion Powder does contain natural preservatives, specifically citric acid and malic acid.

  2. Do Kion Aminos contain all 9 Essential Amino Acids?

    Kion EAAs contain 8 of the 9 Essential Amino Acids (EAAs). Our formulation excludes Histidine because blood Histidine levels will rise naturally when you consume the other EAAs.

  3. How much leucine is present in Kion Aminos?

    Our exact ratio of EAAs is proprietary, but 5 grams of Kion Aminos contains .9-1.35 grams of leucine.

  4. Are Kion Aminos vegan and gluten-free?

    Yes. Kion Aminos are completely plant-based, and the entire line of Kion supplements is gluten-free.

  5. How much dietary protein is a serving of Kion Aminos equivalent to?

    Numerous testing has proven just how little of the protein we eat actually gets absorbed. Whey and soy have a utilization rate of 16%, beef, lamb, and fish have a 33% utilization rate, and whole eggs have a utilization rate of 38%. We've formulated Kion Aminos to be 99% utilized, meaning when you take 5 grams, you absorb 4.95 grams. Therefore, 5 grams of Kion Aminos are roughly equivalent to the following:

    • 10 grams of egg protein
    • 15 grams of meat protein
    • 30 grams of whey protein
    • 30 grams of nuts/soy/dairy
  6. What's the difference between the powder and the tablets?

    The Kion Aminos tablets are unflavored, while the Kion Aminos powder comes in mixed berry and cool lime flavors. Additionally, the powder contains a few ingredients that the tablets do not: malic acid, natural flavor, citric acid, stevia extract, and sunflower lecithin. As a result, the powder contains 2 calories from carbohydrate per serving, as opposed to the effectively zero carb/calorie pills.

  7. What is the difference between EAAs and BCAAs/collagen/protein powder?

    You can learn about the difference between EAAs and BCAAs here, and what makes them different from other protein powders here.

  8. Are EAAs safe for teens?

    Kion Aminos are safe for children and teens. They will not stunt growth and development, and they might even encourage it via upregulated protein synthesis.

  9. Should I take Kion Aminos daily?

    You can take Kion Aminos daily, even if you aren't working out, as amino acids provide the building blocks for nearly all other physiological functions. There is no harm in taking them every day.

  10. Should I take Kion Aminos before, during, or after workouts?

    You can take Kion Aminos at any time around your workout, depending on your personal goals.

    • Take them 20-30 minutes before a workout as a pre-workout boost or to support fasted exercise
    • Take them during your workout if you need an extra push through a high-intensity session or every 1-2 hours during long sessions
    • Take them within 1 hour after a workout to improve your recovery
  11. Will Kion Aminos break my fast?

    Kion Aminos will not interfere with most of the benefits of fasting, as they do not contain added sugars or binders and have minimal calories (<0.3 calories per tablet). EAAs can actually enhance your fast by increasing energy levels, accelerating fat loss, improving athletic performance, staving off appetite cravings, and helping you maintain muscle mass. However, EAAs have been shown to inhibit cellular autophagy, so you should avoid taking them if that's your primary fasting goal.

  12. Do EAAs spike blood sugar?

    Leucine is typically the amino acid thought to increase blood sugar. However, compared to BCAAs, in Kion Aminos leucine is packaged with 7 other amino acids. These other EAAs help to buffer the glycemic response normally experienced from high leucine consumption in their absence. Therefore, the insulin response for most individuals from Kion Aminos is negligible.

  13. Aside from exercise, what else do EAAs support?

    Kion Aminos have many benefits aside from supporting vigorous exercise. EAAs also benefit brain and neurotransmitter health, improve protein synthesis and muscle retention, and they can aid in improving REM sleep. They can even be used to support injury recovery.

  14. Will EAAs disrupt sleep?

    No. Kion Aminos may actually aid in deep sleep by supporting healthy neurotransmitter levels and REM sleep.

  15. There are brown clumps in my Kion Aminos powder. Is this normal? What are they?

    The brown specks are pieces of solidified organic sunflower lecithin. This is a completely natural occurrence with this product.

  16. Can I combine Kion Aminos with creatine, exogenous ketones, protein, and other supplements?

    You can combine Kion Aminos with certain supplements like creatine and exogenous ketones. Any supplemental protein like whey and BCAAs, or fat like MCT oil, will interfere with the utilization rate of our formula. Having said that, our aminos are fully absorbed within 30 minutes, so any other supplement taken or food consumed outside of that timeframe will not interfere with utilization.

  17. Can I crush the tablets?

    Yes. Our founder puts them directly in his mouth and chews them – although we’ll warn that it’s not pleasant! If you’re going for taste, opt for the powder.

  18. Will heat damage or diminish Kion Aminos?

    Heat will not affect the formula or the taste, although it is best to store them in a cool, dry place. They can also be refrigerated after opening.

  1. cal collier

    This came as a sample packet, with another purchase. I gave these to my son, who had completed an ultimate tournament and was pretty exhausted. These Aminos did appear to pick him up, but he said he did not like the flavor at all – much too sweet. I think maybe a little less stevia would fix the flavor issue, or go with a stronger flavor to offset the stevia. Disclaimer – this was my 15 year old son’s review. Thank you

    • Team Kion

      Thank you for the review… We’re always trying to make our products better, and your feedback helps a ton!

  2. Joe

    Not sure how to rate this I had a good/bad response. I took three tabs before the workout, according to Ben’s recommendation.
    Good – during the workout (CrossFit) I felt like superman and ended up beating the rest of the group in the workout.
    Bad – later during the day I had the worst abdominal pain I have ever had.
    Not sure if its a “get used” to the pain or if it goes away with more use…but I stopped since the pain was not something I want to continue with.
    Any advice on what the pain was or how to get around it?

    • Team Kion

      This is not a typical response to the Aminos, and may be a sign of underlying GI or other issues…. However, we are not medical professionals and recommend you speaking with your doctor before continuing supplementation.

  3. Doug Clayton

    Love this stuff. Curious about the L-Lysine HCL. How much are we getting in each 5mg scoop assuming uniformity of the mixture? I have had some minor issues with dehydration and renal fluctuations and there are articles about Lysine in large doses being dangers for kidney function. I am going to assume we aren’t getting a large dose but I wasn’t sure how much we are getting. Thanks!

    Also, a tip: The stuff mixes better if you use warmer water to mix it and then add cold water to cool it off.

    • Team Kion

      We are not doctors and recommend you speak with a licensed medical professional to assess if the Aminos are a good option for you… Each amino acid is present in different moderate levels to ensure the best ratio for optimal absorption/utilization.

  4. Tom S.

    This is a quality amino product. It does have a bit of an aftertaste that’s reminiscent of every other amino acid powder that doesn’t use a ton of artificial flavors, but this is more or less unavoidable. I use this for the later part of a daily 16/8 or 20/4 fast if I start to get hungry or feel fatigued – always does the trick. I’ve also noticed some performance improvement in the gym when training fasted after consuming Kion aminos.

  5. Travis

    I use before and after every fasted workout. Love them. Much better than a whey shake

  6. Greg

    I feel that this product has been helpful in supporting my prolonged efforts on the bike (>2 hours). I do wish that there was an option with no Stevia and very mild flavor. The Stevia “aftertaste” gets a bit old when on the bike for 8-9 hours, I like the flavor profile of Skratch Hydration, and it would be great if Kion Aminos could move closer to that idea. Not sure if it’s possible due to the bitterness of aminos, but I can wish! I do trust that this is the best formulation for my needs and I will continue using it. 🙂

  7. Joe Teson

    The only reason I didn’t give this 5 stars is because I’m not a fan of the mixed berry flavor. Other than that, I love the benefits and how I physically feel when I take this routinely. Since I’m not a fan of the flavor I mix the powder with 8 oz of spring water, shake vigorously, and drink the entire thing in one shot. I’m going to be ordering this product again, just a different flavor.

    • Team Kion

      Thank you for the feedback! Sorry to hear the mixed berry isn’t your fave… Definitely encourage you to give the Lime powder or tablets a shot.

  8. Christine Smith

    Love this!!! I am less sore after working out. I feel that being less sore has also improved my sleep. I’m also going to try taking them before bed.

  9. dylansbarton

    I was given a free sample with a purchase of the 3x coffee bundle. A week later I bought the product itself. I did a pretty intense workout and drank this product 10 minutes before. Not only did I feel a surge of energy before the workout, but it didn’t deplete afterwards. The next day my soreness was minimal which was surprising because I had gone 2 months without doing any type of workout before this

    • Team Kion

      Awesome Dylan! Keep up the great work <3

  10. Marianna

    This is truly an amazing product. It’s delicious, easy to drink, it doesn’t make me feel sick like almost everything else on earth. It gives me a boost before weightlifting or hot yoga and it also helps with muscle recovery during sleep. I want them to print on the label about how it helps with sleep, it is the best thing that has happened to my sleep schedule in my whole life. I just wish it had been created sooner.

  11. Stephen

    Pleased that the product boast >90% bioavailability (5 star). However, the taste has a lot to be desired (1 star) Taste like berries with an aspirin crushed up in them. The taste could be better. I just drink it anyway to get the benefits of the amino acids.

    • Team Kion

      Sorry to hear you don’t love the mixed berry flavor… The tablets could be a great option if the powder isn’t your thing, but the Lime powder offers a more mild, refreshing taste.

  12. Rita

    This powder is perfect! It is a powder so it can easily be added to your drink so that you don’t have to take yet another handful of pills. As a great tasting powder, you can add it to water — yes, water!– and have a refreshing drink with the added benefits of getting your aminos. So many times, the healthy drinks and supps are not quite as tasty as their not so great counterparts and it gets tiring to always have to buckle down and do the right thing. Not so with this powder! You’ll love it and it’s great for you!

  13. Kay

    I got the Cool Lime powder. This is the cleanest tasting amino drink I’ve tried. Others tend to have weird off flavors or a sharp smell. I can gulp this one down really smoothly. With Ben Greenfield formulating the EAA content, I know this is a supplement I can trust.

    • Team Kion

      Awesome! Glad you love the Aminos and thanks for the feedback <3

  14. Rebecca Roeter

    I love Kion Aminos! I use them as my go to pre-workout. Great taste, clean, and they help me feel energetic throughout my workout! Also, following my workouts I don’t feel as hungry as I did with my former pre-workout. Win-Win-Win!

  15. John

    Honestly the most effective supplement I’ve ever taken. I’ve tried lots of different bcaa’s, creatine, etc. This one takes the cake. Give me a major boost in strength & I don’t get nearly as sore. Lets just say if I skip a day with Kion, ill notice!

  16. Tommy W.

    I was looking for something to help with my early morning, fasted workouts. Before taking Kion Aminos I could get through the workouts pretty well, but just wouldn’t “kill it” like I wanted to. With Kion Aminos I am working hard in the AM and feeling great doing it. I was a bit skeptical that the aminos would help that much, but in my experience they are a huge boost in performance. Plus my recovery seems better, too. I’m keeping the aminos on auto-ship for the foreseeable future! Thanks, Ben!

    • Team Kion

      Love this <3 Thanks for sharing your experience Tommy!

  17. Jeff

    LOVE THIS STUFF …. tastes great, performs amazing. Been using it pre-workout for HIIT and I’ve noticed a major improvement in endurance and strength.

  18. Sarah

    I use this after my morning run to help me continue my intermittent fasting.
    It keeps my brain sharp and body fueled as I get three little kiddos ready for the day and then myself off to work.
    I have also been using this product during my fourth pregnancy and I have been able to continue intermittent fasting and running and feeling great until I eat my first meal. We are due this thursday and I am still getting out there. Thank you Kion.
    FYI – Thank you been for putting out such great research on your pod-cast.
    I listen to you during my morning runs!!

  19. Howard McNeill

    I a simple word, WOW! Don’t remember ever being so impressed by the way a product performs as I have the Kion Aminos. Great job, Ben and the whole Kion team on producing a product that truly delivers. My favorite way to take these is in a fasted state just about 30 mins before I go for a run or an upper body workout. These aminos give me a steady supply of energy throughout my entire workout, without making me jittery like caffeine or having a huge crash like with some of the “energy drinks.” Planning to do my first Spartan Trifecta this year at 50 years old, and Kion Aminos will definitely be part of my game plan! Thanks again for a great product!

  20. Jeremy Roberson

    I really enjoy the product. I was taken the capsule version before this flavor came out. It was hard to accept the flavor at first but now I enjoy downing it in the morning or before my workout. Im feeling good with it while maintaining a simple training routine. I look forward to more in the future.

  21. Joshua Rundquist

    I recently ran a marathon, joined the sub four hour club and set a 45 minute PR. I primarily fueled with Kion Aminos throughout the run. While there are multiple other factors at play such as training and the fact that I ran my previous marathon the day after a half, I would still state that fueling with such a high quality product did play a major role in how I felt throughout the run and lowering my perceived rate of exertion.

  22. David Reinisch

    Weirdly, works as advertised. I’m a 62 year old competitive rower. These allow me to skip a meal and train on an empty stomach so the added flexibility on when in the day to train is wonderful. I’m no longer tethered to not having enough to eat to go train or having to wait to fully digest a meal to train. And when I train with these, the perceived effort has shifted from those moments in every workout where my mind is saying, “I can’t do this anymore, just shoot me” to “this is fun”. It’s like my good feeling endorphins are no longer masked by the pain of the workout. I am faster cause I can work harder cause the pain threshold has moved. I’m excited for how this impacts the races. I’ve been using these three to five times per week for just the high intensity workouts on the erg and for the strength training sessions. As I’m only 5’8″ and 145 pounds, I use only 4 tabs and that seems to have plenty of positive effects. Zero side effects. I’ve shared this with some other team members and they are noticing identical benefits to mine. I’ll check in again after race season gets under way.

      Thanks for sharing your experience David!

  23. Cecilie

    Hi! Im loving the kion aminos. Finding my workouts getting so much easier and really getting that extra boost! You are saying that 5 gram of these are equal to 15 grams of meat protein, or 30 gram of whey. Does that mean I do not need to add any more protein than 5 grams of the kion aminos after my workout and can substitute the protein in my smoothie with the aminos, or should I have some other protein source as well and just reduce the amount a bit? If I would want the aminos to be the only protein source, should I then add more then 5 gram? I usually have 5 gram before, 5 gram during if im working out for about 1,5 hour, and 5 grams after. Hope you can give me some pinpoits, thank you =)

    • Team Kion

      We recommend that you do not consume any other significant source of protein at the same time as the Aminos (within approx 30 min). This will alter the amino acid profile, which can have effects on absorption.

  24. Stephen

    Honestly. Tried it 3 times. Each time rocked my GI system not in a good way.
    Other kion products have been great but this one not for me.

    • Team Kion

      Sorry to hear that you’re experiencing this issue. Contact support@getkion.com and they’ll take care of you!

  25. janice.m.flood

    The mixed berry powder tastes great. I use it for post workout muscle recovery and it is excellent. I used to use a whey protein powder and my muscles were constantly sore. With the Kion Aminos the soreness in my muscles has been reduced significantly. Great product!

  26. Boone Zavik

    The mixed berry powder is a perfect flavor. It has enough flavor without being too much and the sweetness is just right. Since taking it before my workouts I feel great throughout the whole workout period and I leave having energy for the rest of the day. I also have noticed that muscle soreness has reduced. I used to feel pretty sore the next day, but that hasn’t happened since taking Kion Aminos, could be coincidence, but I keep lifting more and more and feeling great.

  27. Richard Mihalovich

    I love Kion Aminos! They are a huge part of my everyday supplement routine. I’ve packed on some serious muscle and my recovery time literally got cut in half since taking it.

  28. Jaynied Dylan

    I absolutely love all the aminos I’ve tried from kion. The tablets are awesome and I love the mixed berry powder! I can notice a big difference in definition, energy and recovery when I use these. Highly recommend!

  29. Tucker Newman

    I use it after every workout, absolutely love it!!!

  30. otoyali1986

    Hello thank you for the answer regarding blk coffee intake.

    What about collagen? MTC? And butter coffee? Is this also ok 30 mins or so after the amino acids?

    Thank you!

    • Team Kion

      The Aminos should have enough time to absorb in that time frame!

  31. Michael Quinn

    Hi, I’m a 42 year old triathlete and I started on the Kion Aminos 3 weeks ago to help with my fasted workouts and in an attempt to speed healing of a hurt shoulder. I noticed a difference during my first workout. I was able to hold a much harder pace without the mental fatigue I normally experience. After 3 weeks my shoulder, which has bothered me for 6 months is also noticeably stronger and hurts less. I’d recommend these for anyone doing fasted workouts or doing rehab.

    • Team Kion

      Awesome to hear the Aminos could help you get back to dominating races!

  32. Steve Bowley

    I’ve been doing CrossFit and taking every pre-workout imaginable for the last 8 years. I workout fasted every morning and I’m in awe at the energy I have without the caffeine! Not to mention it continues throughout the day. I’ve also noticed lesser soreness.

    • Team Kion

      Love this <3 Thanks Steve!

  33. otoyali1986

    Hello, I just started using the Kion amino acids. So far so good. If I take them after my morning workouts, which I do in a state of fast. How long should I wait after I consumed the product to
    Drink coffee? Black course!

    • Team Kion

      Really the biggest thing to avoid would be another significant source of protein, and coffee would be less of a concern. Having said that, Kion Aminos absorb very quickly (less than 30 min) so if you’re looking to consume them with only water, wait about half an hour so they’re fully absorbed.

  34. Edward

    I work out early during my fasting phase. These aminos give me the energy to power through my rigorous workouts. The days I don’t drink them are night and day. Highly recommend.

  35. srjaeckel

    Amazing. Not like a crappy workout supplements that makes you rage and chew on the walls. Calm, clear head. Can push much harder in the gym. I take the pills.

  36. Robert Clark

    I have the same issue as Bruce. Taste is not good and it gets very frothy after mixing. I am sure it is delivering the goods though so no worries. I will look at the tablets as suggested.

  37. Bruce Apfelbaum

    Taste is really awful & is very frothy after mixing. I want something to drink as a pre-workout supplement so all my energy is devoted to the workout. I’m sure it works but hard to get past the taste. I mix it with other products. Would appreciate suggestions.

    • Team Kion

      Have you tried the new Berry Aminos flavor or the tablets, Bruce? Could be a great option!

  38. nauzy

    I would buy this product if it had no flavoring as all react to all flavoring.

    • Team Kion

      You could give the Kion Aminos tablets a shot!

  39. Lee Maasen

    Kion EAA’s has been an absolute game changer for my body composition and recovery. After becoming educated that the supplement industry is NOT FDA regulated and a lot of companies are simply not telling the truth about the ingredients or adding artificial flavors and food colorings. It was challenging to find a company that I could trust and count on and KNOW with certainty that I am getting what is on the label. Outside of this product truly being the top of the market(hours of researching) I use it in many different ways; As a pre-workout boost, post-workout recovery, before going to sleep, during any fasting -I also train fasted sometimes- and on days I simply need a pick me up. Love this product and will continue to use it for a long time.

  40. Billy Sanderson

    I still like this product, since incorporating it daily in conjunction with intermittent fasting i’ve noticed improved lean muscle mass without breaking my back working out. For personal preference, the lime is better. New berry flavor is kind of bollocks mate, tastes awful, not like mixed berries at all. Ordered 2 jars instead of 1, oops. Mixed berry formulation seems to dissolve slightly better overall, but takes a bit longer to stir in the clumps. I’d honestly like to see this product available in a flavorless formulation with the stevia removed. cheers.

    • Team Kion

      Thank you for your feedback Billy!

  41. Daniel McNamara

    I do a 20-30 min workout every day in the afternoon with some kettlebells, dumbbells and bodyweight type exercises. I usually do one set to failure mixing up HIIT, slow lifting and explosive lifting (just to keep the body guessing). I honestly can’t afford to take these as a daily supplement but I thought I’d try it on a harder type day, so I took 3 tablets 20 min before and couldn’t believe what a difference it made to how many reps I could do before failure (I’m getting towards my normal failure reps thinking WTF I have so much more in me!) and the type of soreness afterwards (took 2 more before bed – couple of hours after dinner so that I’d be ok to get back into it the next day). I’m incredibly happy with my purchase and wish I could afford this as a daily supplement but will probably spread one bottle out across two months or so on harder days.

  42. William Drury

    I like the product, just started working out again a couple times a week. Supplementing with the Kion Aminos along with Creatine and some Whey Protein, my recovery has been good and I have put on 7 lbs.

    Only negative is the pills are not easy to swallow for me.

      Happy to hear you’re having great results! Thanks for the feedback… A great alternative to the tablets is our new Berry Aminos powder <3

  43. burnslauren94

    Love love love!!!!! Tastes so good. Watermelon flavor next?!

  44. ashley

    love these things! Everyday staple!

  45. Brett Pentecost

    Love this product! I met Ben at a spartan race and did not know who he was at the time but later saw him on Joe Rogan’s podcast and realized that was who I met at the race I was just at in SoCal last year. I’ve started following his podcasts and some of his news letters and have fallen in love with the wealth of knowledge he shares and after looking into his supplement line these Kion aminos were the perfect supplement for what I was looking for to be able to get a complete blend of quality amino acids I can take in a fasted state to help support my body’s recovery and improve functions and energy in the morning when I am still fasted. I also started using the Kion flex as many of the things in that supplement were already things I was sourcing individually to consume in my diet to help with joint inflammation and over all recovery. It is a quality supplement that saves me lots of time and money having to otherwise source those ingredients individually.

  46. Tomy Lulgjuraj

    I do like that it provides more aminos then regular BCAA’s, and it does help with my workouts. The weird thing is, I get a flem response in my throat similar to when I consume dairy, for that reason I probably won’t order this again.

  47. Benjamin Gehrke

    I can’t really put my finger on it because my diet is not the greatest. But I’ve always had a tough time recovering from hard workouts. After being on this stuff regularly I find I can actually workout harder and not be as sore. As if my muscles are getting something they have been missing. I highly recommend this product.

  48. Austin Martz

    I started incorporating these into my offseason training plan- about 20 minutes before a big interval workout and/or heavy lifting. Combined with some creatine and electrolytes, I’ve been feeling great in my workouts and recover well too. I use the powder and the taste is relatively subtle so you don’t get that sugary temptation. Will continue to buy these.

  49. Organic life

    The question of the day is, what food sources are these amino acids extracted from????
    The nutritional label tells me nothing other than the serving recommendation.
    You are what you eat, so if you don’t know then what are you really eating??

    • Team Kion

      The amino acids are derived from plant based sources such as beans and peas mixed with a culture that breaks them down to a sugar form. Then the individual amino acids are extracted from the broth using a process involving centrifugal force which separates them by their weights. They are pure, pharmaceutical grade, crystalline amino acids. There are no plant residues or sugars, yeast, gluten, soy, corn, wheat, rice, preservatives, excipients or animal products. They are vegan. They are produced in a cGMP Laboratory in the USA.

  50. Wesley Robins

    Great product, highly recommended for anyone trying to gain muscle but also living a busy lifestyle. Add a scoop to a jug of water and sip it throughout the day! I like to use it with a little creatine, l-citrulline, and beta-alanine for a preworkout boost.

  51. D1

    Works great, easy to digest. High quality as promised. A+ company. Thank you Kion and Ben.

  52. Robert castillo

    Never received my last purchase. I also need to cancel my monthly shipments. How do I go about doing this?

    Never received my last order. Also need to cancel my monthly shipment. How do I go about doing this?

  54. Bill McGovern

    If you have any sort of lingering toxicity from psychiatric drugs, fluoroquinolones, other drugs or another form of TBI, I would recommend against using this product. I took just one tablet and had a hellish reaction, including symptoms of serotonin syndrome. Days later, I am still suffering and have nothing but regret from using this product.

  55. Mike

    I purchased these to help with my Sealfit workouts. I’m quite satisfied. I also found the supplement had a positive effect on my memory and mood.

  56. jpro

    so far so good, definitely feel the energy and appetite control effects.

  57. jpro

    so far so good, definitely feel the energy and appetite control.

  58. Vern Rowe

    Depending on the day, I do fasted cardio or resistance or yoga each morning. I just turned 64 and my body doesn’t recover as fast as it used to. I was looking for a product that gave me a bit more energy and stamina during workouts and eased the soreness I experienced the next day. Kion Aminos delivered. Thanks for such an effective product!

  59. Rod Hauer

    Ordered the powder and I agree with other posts it tastes awful, I cut it with lemon flavored electrolytes. I take it after workouts and seems to help, have good energy the rest of the day.

  60. Minette

    Unbelievable! I tell everyone I found the magic unicorn pill that ACTUALLY helps with sustained energy level, less hunger pains while intermittent fasting, and better cognitive function throughout the day. Don’t even hesitate, grab a bottle. You won’t regret it!

  61. Tom D

    I am one month in using the Kion Amino tablets. Typically I take them pre and post workout (CrossFit 5x a week). There has been a significant difference in my recovery. I have noticed my muscles feel less sore and my overall energy level is improved. When I wake up I feel good, not crushed!

  62. George I Vitorovich

    The best product like this I have ever taken. Until now amino acids have only been theoretically helpful. The quality shows~

  63. Richard Preston

    Been on the Keto diet for 90 days and just added Kion to my daily workout routine. Power and focus in the gym has gone to a new higher level. I look forward to the results in the coming weeks and months.

  64. Mario Berber

    I’m three weeks in to using the Aminos powder. I take it 30 min before a workout & I take it on a empty stomach every morning. I like to take it in the morning for recovery. I’ve been having some awesome workouts. I would say the best I’ve tried.

  65. paulmartinez67

    Best in the business hands down

  66. Neil Howell

    I now consider these EEAs a necessity. I can tell a big difference whether working out or doing chores around the place. Huge help when doing a workout fasted.

  67. MSimpson

    For being 64 yrs old, I am felling better taking Kion Aminos once or twice a day.

  68. Kortney O.

    I got the lime powder. The taste is hard to get past for me; it is really not good. I definitely feel like the stevia should be removed and something actually natural (real flavoring) added. I mix it with black tea, and it is still so strong. It also gives me bad breath afterwards- so just gotta brush my teeth after I drink it.
    However, having said that, I do feel like it works. It helps curb my hunger and I feel like it helps me recover so I’m not so worn out and gives a little energy boost. I have thyroid issues, so I am tired a lot and I think this helps. I just wish it tasted better. As of right now, I dread drinking it! This is why it only gets 2 stars; also it’s a little pricey ($15 or so less would be a more reasonable price point, but that’s my humble opinion..).

  69. Jacob nash

    Definitely a difference in muscle soreness and recovery. Taste is decent. Mixes great. On long rides i use one scoop every hour. Rode 100 yesterday and feel fine today.

  70. Jillian Murphy

    As anyone will see from these reviews, this product is not just your common or garden “Amino drink”. Most of the “workout energy amino” type products have a lot of stimulants, colors and junk in them. They are not something you will benefit from putting in your body. This is a clean, pure, simple product. I find that especially as a supplement to intermittent fasting, they are a fresh way of making sure I don’t lose muscle or get fatigued while fasting. They help keep energy up and seem to help my blood sugar stay more even. But don’t take my word for it… just ask any other person who has taken these. The opinion is pretty much unanimous. Try them and you’ll be a believer!

  71. Kj Davis

    I’ve had a remarkable gain in fitness after supplementing with Kion aminos. I absolutely love them, the science behind them, how they make me feel, how they help me perform. They’re even helping my knee. I’ve taken up fasting for autophagy to decrease inflammation in it from an ACL replacement four years ago and have also incorporated fasted workouts along with aminos. There’s such a huge difference from where I was just a month ago. I’ve been a fan of Ben Greenfield for over a year, so I trust in his products as well. This is one that I’ll keep using. Thank you, Ben and the Kion team for all your research and blog posts. Keep up the great work!!

  72. Jessica Tarleton

    I love working out while fasting. Taking Kion amino acids, gives my body the energy I need to push through a grueling workout.

  73. Alfredo Torres

    Kion Aminos is awesome! I love the fact that it provides the right amount essential aminos before and after an intense Workout. The fact that it has no fillers or crap reduces the amount of toxins in your body.

  74. Thomas Harnett

    The product science is solid, yes I performed my own experiment to verify what was advertised. With no changes in diet or workout program I experienced 2.5% fat loss and 3 pounds increase in lean mass in 1 month using the same two measurement methods. Bioelectric Impedance and calipers.

  75. tschroeder717

    Great tasting convenient and seems to help build muscle on keto diet

  76. Dominic Wilson

    Super clean energy. This not only gives me the essential aminos I need to optimize performance but gives me stable, good and clean energy. I often use it as a pre-workout, post workout or even for an energy boost on rest days. Mixability is relatively good and the taste isnt bad. Definitely recommend.

  77. matt4

    I have been using Kion Aminos for the last two weeks and they have been great! I switched from BCAA’s and have been able to prolong my fasting longer than before. I usually add some ice and a few drops of lemon juice for improved taste. I plan on using this supplement for a long time.

  78. Brady Crone

    Best Aminos I’ve used. Tastes good and no tummy upsets during long workouts or while fasting. Definitely helps in maintaining muscle while on a keto diet. I noticed a significant difference in Muscle Recovery & soreness when using it before during and after workouts whether it be endurance or heavy lifting…or Both!

  79. Sheila H McDevett

    I tried the Kion Aminos because i know how much Ben puts into everything that goes into improving his health. I am a Masters crossfit athlete and recovery is key for me. I am enjoying and feeling the benefits of the product. I highly recommend.

  80. Paul N.

    Really liking the powder. I’m using it as a replacement for breakfast in order to do TRE. Taste is good too. I also think it’s helping with workouts, but my sample size is still too small (two weeks) to know for sure.

  81. Steve McLeod

    I think my work recovery is faster and I have less muscle loss when not working out and eating enough. I am 61 yrs young and going for my third order of the Amino 🙂

  82. Frank C. Allen

    I have only read the reviews. I am not going to work out or start a new routine. I’m 70 years old & I haven’t been sick, not even a cold, in over 30 years. I’m 6′ 1″, 222 lbs. & people already think that I lift weights, but, I never have. I do take supplements & they do work for me. I’m looking for a change in my getting up in the morning & the feeling I get after working in my yard. Stiffness & pain. Smile

  83. njpcptrainer

    I wish I could give a good review but I haven’t received my product yet. I ordered it on July 9th and it July 22 now and I still haven’t gotten it, This is the slowest delivery I have ever dealt with,

    • Team Kion

      Sorry about this! We received your support request and are looking into what caused this delay. Please look out for an email from Team Kion.

  84. Josh

    Amazing. Taking ten grams in the morning gives me hours of energy. Helped with reducing my caffeine intake, recovery, and my focus. Great nutrition.

  85. tschroeder717

    Great taste ,Dissolves in water fast

  86. Anibal

    I really enjoy EAA and I use it mainly during my fasting, my only question would be, which form of silica is used here. Great product

    • Team Kion

      It is silicon dioxide.

  87. Steven Lee Epperson

    Aminos are great, easy to take the amount is great.

  88. Paul

    Excellent product puts me in beast mode after 18/6 IF

  89. Jayne Peterlin

    I don’t know where to start! Ben’s podcasts have change my life!!! I started on his amino’s, Flex, serum. Things are changing so fast in the way I feel it’s hard to explain. I’ve ordered his other products and can’t wait to get this week! The serum I absolutely love! My face has never felt so tight, clean and clear. After a workout I will wipe my face and apply the serum. I apply it after shower and before bed. It’s change the redness I have had for months.

    The amino’s I take first thing in morning and after workouts. If I need a boast I take before working out. Love them and feel a big difference! I cannot wait to try it in my ultra runner races! 3 more weeks and I’ll give you a update. I plan to use Ben’s guide on how to use in racing. I cannot say enough about the Flex. My world had change with these products. I don’t know Ben, I stumbled on his podcasts and listened intensely For a few weeks before diving into product! I couldn’t have made a better choice! Thank you Ben!! Looking forward to reporting back after my races in August!!

  90. Matt Klacman

    So far so good after a week. Originally purchased as a preworkout to replace some of the others that have refined/processed sugars. Have since started using it as the morning shot as well. Great taste, I was skeptical (sorry Ben). Mixes very well as has been said. Really love the clean ingredients. Thanks.

  91. elizwallsuva

    I am a 27 y.o. female, 122 pounds, 18% body fat, and I just started taking my Kion Amino tablets daily, 30 minutes before I start my workout at the gym or before I go for a long run (to allow for the 23 minute minimum absorption time for an empty stomach). I have been taking 3 Kion tablets to start out instead of the recommended 5. They taste pretty bad, but I LIKE that because it reassures me there are NO binders, fillers, stearates, coating or dye. I swallow them down with my usual water mixture of exogenous ketones and Aprey’s “Bulletproof Octane” MCT oil. I have been able to run 8-13 miles at a time much faster, without the usual soreness the following day. I have also been able to train with heavier weights & solid stairmaster sessions daily without feeling fatigued. I am encouraged to continue taking these Kion aminos (& to increase my daily dose to 5 tablets) to see how much more muscle I can build, fat I can lose, and if they will help me run the Army 10 this October faster.

  92. Scott Pedersen

    Really incredible stuff ! I Love to climb or trail run fasted in the morning and Kion Aminos takes you to that Superman level no joke . Highly recommend

  93. Customcardioandfitness

    This is a must for anyone looking to insure and improve a high quality amino cascade throughout the day! The tablets are convenient and no stomach issues what so ever.

  94. CJ

    Amazing! Very good product! I will be ordering more. Great for workouts and recovery is much better.

  95. Sam

    So far, so GREAT! I’ve been experimenting with intermittent fasting and have taken this a couple of times pre workout on days where I’m lifting heavy. I felt INCREDIBLE. I’ll probably be buying more once I run out. Going to try and make it last because at $1 per serving, it’s not the cheapest, but the quality appears to be self evident.

  96. Michael

    Noticed an immediate difference when taken before a workout. Noticed almost immediate difference in strength and muscle gain, as well. This is the highest dose of amino acids I’ve ever seen, and I won’t stop using it, even on non-workout days.

  97. Bobby

    I noticed a significant energy boost when using this product. I can’t quite handle the recommended dose before exercise, but that just means I can save more money! I like how this product isn’t loaded with junk like other amino products. Already subscribed and ready for the next batch!

  98. Pete

    I’m a 60 year old guy, and couldn’t resist pushing my limits with a few 50+ mile rides within the first week of buying a new road bike. A few days later my hip flexors were screaming. Trying other BCAs, ice baths, massages nothing worked to ease the excruciating deep pain. After reading up on these essential aminos, I ordered and took a double dose…within 1/2 hr, pain gone! Worth every penny!! Thanks for having a product that matches your claims. You don’t see that very open these days.

  99. Jonas Sova

    Best Aminos on the market

  100. allstar_ry13

    These aminos taste so good and mix well! They are not too sweet, just a very clean and smooth Aminos supplement! Thank you for the great prodcut!!

  101. Michael Dylan Cone

    I enjoy running in a fasted state. Lately, my long runs have been hitting me hard after the 90-minute mark because of being fasted. Kion Aminos have helped boost my performance and curb fatigue on these runs, helping me go the distance!

  102. sodmount

    Wow, this is why I listen to Ben’s podcast. Over the years (yes I have been listening for awhile) I have learned so so much from you Ben (thanks for that). This product made a huge difference in my workouts! This is a great product!!! Thanks Ben for your knowledge and your podcast and NOW your products!!! We want more products from you in the future, we trust YOU.

  103. Anthony Anzelmo

    I used the Kion Aminos Cool Lime Powder. Fantastic product that really rejuvenates your body and mind post workout. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was because of the flavor. There was a bit of a chemical taste when mixed with water but that was the only downfall. Highly recommend.

  104. Ethan

    So far so good, I am looking forward to trying these on fasted days as well.

  105. Johnny

    One of my favorite supplement staples. It has an easy taste, and has benefits for daily life on off days and training days. I will definitely be buy this again!

  106. Andrew Bachi

    Wow! These are so much better than any BCA I have tried. Definitely helped me with muscle gain and to recover more quickly from a workout. I recommend these for anyone who is looking for great gains.

  107. Lisa

    Kion Aminos not only gives you more energy while working out (especially during fasted workouts), it’s also a great recovery booster. I used this product while training for the Boston marathon and could feel it helped with endurance, strength and recovery. When I ran out of the product I trained for about 3 weeks without it and could tell a huge difference in my performance. I reordered and had the same energy boosting/recovery enhancement effects as before. I plan to always keep some on hand.

  108. Matt

    Awesome product. Love no added coloring, etc. Perfect by themselves or mixing with some ketones, ice and club soda for a fasted snowcone!!

  109. Josh

    I’ve been taking MAP aligned aminos for over two years to balance out protein synthesis issues related to autoimmune. These are great quality at a solid price

  110. Brandon

    Kion Aminos are great. I primarily use them while fasting, as Ben recommended in a Facebook video. I find that they help me sustain a 24 hour (or longer) fast much easier.

  111. amy

    Compared to BCAAS, this blows my workouts away! I use pre-workout as well as a compliment to morning fasting. The taste of the powder is good and it mixes well with other flavors as well. If you are in the market for amino acids, try these first!

  112. nebelskirjn

    Kion Aminos is amazing! Usually the aminos I have used taste horrible but you take them because they are good for you. Not only are these great for you they taste awesome! Just some ice, water and Kion Aminos in a blender makes an awesome frozen dessert!!

  113. Valerie

    Great product! Helps with recovery after a workout big time. Sometimes it gives me a headache. No complaints besides that. I’ll be buying it again.

  114. Angie

    Kion Aminos helped my husband and I build and maintain muscle and fight cravings between meals and during periods of fasting. It tastes great too! The only downside is the small container, I used it up very quickly.

  115. John Shoffner

    I started using Ben’s Nature Aminos a few years ago and did some research on the specific protein stack. It’s true that the arrangement and quantity of the specific proteins here work synergistically because of the uniqueness of the blend. Use it exactly as Ben describes (before and after a work out) (be careful of your timing eating fat) and you will truly enjoy this product. It’s even good for a super quality protien snack when traveling (I chuckled when I read that Ben used this often on airplanes to avoid the crap food – but he’s right). Nothing beats a well timed and bio-correct amino stack. Go for it. One note: I like the pill form better – the powder gives me a bit of insulin spike, tastes pretty good though. Enjoy. -JS

  116. Kelsey

    Kion Aminos has helped me put on more muscle in a shorter amount of time than anything else I’ve ever taken. Great workout booster, and also hands down the BEST way to fight cravings during fasting. Fabulous product!

  117. Jeff Leonard

    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.

  118. Ary Trinidad

    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.

  119. ruiz_josealberto

    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.

  120. Dale Daubenmeyer

    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.

  121. cramey13

    Big fan of the Amino powder!

    Pro’s
    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!

  122. Jonathan Profili

    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.

  123. 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.

  124. Alex

    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!

  125. Natalie Foote

    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!

  126. Simone

    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.

  127. Joe Allison

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

  128. Kan

    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?

  129. Georgiana Gilbert

    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. 🙂

  130. tschroeder717

    Great tasting and mixes well in water

  131. Steve

    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!

  132. Eric

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

  133. Robert Hawk

    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.

  134. Brian Haynes

    great product, get it!

  135. tschroeder717

    Great taste

  136. 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.

  137. pialomax2

    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?

    -Pia

    • Team Kion

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

  138. Jacqueline Corbett

    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.

  139. Mitch Mitchell

    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.

  140. Thomas Diones

    Amazing quality, great taste, and a clean feeling. I wish i had a bottomless container of this stuff because im going to be using Kion aminos for the long haul.
