Kion Fasting Bundle
Kion’s Favorite Combo To Support Fasting!
- 2 Bags Kion Coffee
- 2 Bottle Kion Aminos Tablets
Fasting is a simple practice that can have profound impacts on your mental, physical, and spiritual health. However, simple doesn't always mean easy. The first few hours of a fast can be difficult to get through due to hunger pangs, low energy, and brain fog.
That's why we've curated the Kion Fasting Bundle, which includes two powerhouse products to help you get through your fast while still reaping the benefits of fasting.*
The Kion Fasting Bundle includes:
Kion Coffee: Organic, black coffee is a clean source of caffeine, which has been shown to suppress hunger and improve energy levels during a fast. Our coffee is also rich in polyphenols that can enhance many of the benefits of fasting, including improved body composition, gut health, and autophagy.*
Kion Aminos (Tablets): Pure essential amino acids (EAAs) are a great way to “hack” your fast for better energy levels, better cognition, and sustained muscle mass.* They can also provide the fuel you need to get through fasted workouts. Our Aminos are essentially zero calorie, and don't contain any sugars or artificial sweeteners that will break your fast. (Please note: If you are fasting purely for longevity, you may want to avoid taking EAAs as they can stimulate the mTor pathway and interfere with autophagy.)
Upgrade your fasting practice today with the Kion Fasting Bundle!

Ingredients & Label
Aminos Tablets Ingredients:
L–Leucine, L–Valine, L–Isoleucine, L–Lysine HCl, L–Phenylalanine, L–Threonine, L–Methionine, L–Tryptophan
Kion Aminos Tablets
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.
