Superior Amino 2222 is designed to provide a full spectrum of all the amino acids (essential and non-essential). Ingestion of the essential amino acids is important because they cannot be produced by the body and therefore must be eaten. Essential amino acids are important for proper bodily functions, including recovery and growth in response to training. However, each tablet of Superior Amino 2222 only contains just over 2 grams of amino acids, and when you consider it contains 20 amino acids, that equates to tiny amounts of each amino acid. You would have to have a very poor diet for 2 grams of protein to have any real impact on your recovery or gains in size and strength. The only scenario where is it likely that 2.2 grams of amino acids may be of benefit is in vegetarians and vegans where normal dietary sources of protein may be lacking. Even then over half of the amino acids contained in this product can already be produced by the body without them being eaten in the diet.
The amino acids in Superior Amino 2222 are predominantly derived from whey protein, therefore it is not suitable for vegans. While ingestion of the essential amino acids is more important than the non-essential amino acids, anyone who is already eating protein from any quality sources (e.g. whey, casein, egg, meat or fish) will already be getting well over 2.2 grams of these amino acids from only one small portion (e.g. 30g of whey protein would contain well over 2.2g of essential amino acids).
Sizes: 150 capsules/soft gels/tablets, 300 capsules/soft gels/tablets
- Contains a small dose (2.2g) of amino acids; when compared to a small portion of any good protein source (whey, egg, casein, meat, fish) this is a tiny amount of each amino acid.
- May be of use to vegetarians who don’t consume any good sources of protein that are available to them (e.g. dairy products).
Who’s it for
Superior Amino 2222 is suitable for those who are extremely lacking good sources of protein in their diet and therefore 2g of protein may be of some benefit to them.
