Building blocks for muscle recovery, reduced cravings, better cognition, immunity, and more.*
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.

Kion Aminos Tablets

Kion Aminos Mixed Berry Powder
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.
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.
Our exact ratio of EAAs is proprietary, but 5 grams of Kion Aminos contains .9-1.35 grams of leucine.
Yes. Kion Aminos are completely plant-based, and the entire line of Kion supplements is gluten-free.
- 10 grams of egg protein
- 15 grams of meat protein
- 30 grams of whey protein
- 30 grams of nuts/soy/dairy
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.
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.
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.
- 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
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.
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.
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.
No. Kion Aminos may actually aid in deep sleep by supporting healthy neurotransmitter levels and REM sleep.
The brown specks are pieces of solidified organic sunflower lecithin. This is a completely natural occurrence with this product.
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.
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.
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.
