What’s the best way for me to take AMMO-8?
The best way to take AMMO-8 is 1-2 scoops before or during training. It can be mixed in water, carbohydrate beverage and/or GP3 EVO/Warfare. We also suggest taking 1 scoop AMMO-8 first upon waking with Athlete’s Superfood (optional) to get your body anabolic and alkaline as quickly as possible.
Can I mix AMMO-8 in protein powder?
You could add AMMO-8 to any protein meal or drink to make it more anabolic. For pre and intra-workout we recommend taking it on its own or mixed with a carbohydrate drink (see Battle Juice). The non-essential aminos acids found in regular protein will only “get in the way” of the more important essential amino acids found in AMMO-8.
Does AMMO-8 replace the hydrolyzed protein or isolate I’ve been using for my workouts?
YES! AMMO-8 is vastly superior to isolate and even hydrolyzed protein. You would have to take 3x the amount of protein to get anywhere near AMMO-8’s anabolic effect. And even then, the digestion and absorption doesn’t come close.
Why not just take BCAAs?
BCCAs (leucine, valine, isoleucine) make up only 3 of the 9 Essential Amino Acids (EAAs). BCAAs are quite good for minimizing muscle breakdown, but for actual muscle protein synthesis and growth, all EAAs must be present.
