Optimum Nutrition – Amino Energy Advanced – Product Overview

The OG Amino+Energy product that started the initial craze of adding caffeine to the amino acid blend category gets another installment in the evolution of the class. This time they take the energy and add a bit of focus/cognitive boost along for the ride.

They use a decent amount of nootropics from the cholinergic world and that comes in the duo of Alpha GPC and CDP Choline. Both are known to ramp up cholinergic pathways that are associated with mental acuity, memory, and even performance enhancements during physical activity. They also add the powerful curcumin extract that has been shown to have a plethora of health benefits ranging from GI health to mental acuity.

Combined with the classic EAA, Taurine, caffeine and Beta Alanine combination from the standard amino energy template its looking like they may have one upped the game. Nootropics and mental boost type ingredients have been on a real surge as of late with almost everyone dipping their toes into the cognitive enhancement game. It’s still early to tell but it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on to see if the nootropic hybridization of many different products stick around for the long haul. Especially as grey area stims are disappearing from the market and caffeine’s doses are peaking out.
