Neon Sport, the up and coming company from the owners of Cellucor will be releasing a range of products in 2013. One of these products will be their intra-workout, amino acid matrix supplement titled Kinetic. Here is a breakdown of what will be in the supplement and a discussion of how well it compares to similar products on the market today.
Neon Sport Kinetic Intra-Workout Highlights
- Branched Chain Amino Acids
- Silk Amino Acids
- L-Carnitine Tartrate
Neon Sport Kinetic Intra-Workout Ingredients & Dosage
Neon Sport Kinetic is an intra-workout and recovery supplement filled with amino acids. A full serve of Kinetic measuring 10g will contain the following ingredients:
- Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) - 2.5g: Kinetic’s formula will comprise the branched chain amino acids of leucine, isoleucine and valine in a 3:1:1 ratio.
- Silk Amino Acids (SAAs) - 4g: These are the amino acids present in silk, a strong protein product. These amino acids include in order of magnitude; Alanine, Glycine, Serine, Valine and Threonine. While it contains other amino acids, these represent the most abundant.
- Kinetic Energy Blend (631mg) - This small blend will contain L-carnitine tartrate, coconut water and ascorbic acid or vitamin C.
Neon Sport Kinetic Intra-Workout Pros & Effectiveness
There’s little doubt that additional branched chain amino acids is beneficial both in terms of recovery and for muscle protein synthesis and growth. Indeed, the BCAAs in Neon Sport’s Kinetic will also benefit exercise performance as well.
Neon Sport Kinetic Intra-Workout Cons
BPI Sports was one of the first companies to really market silk amino acids with their supplement Blox. While one of the best tasting supplements around, there’s very little research on the constituent proteins in SAAs on exercise performance, other than its ability to assist with muscle protein synthesis. Perhaps time will tell whether or not SAAs are worth its inclusion. The inclusion of L-carnitine tartrate and coconut water is excellent in providing energy and electrolytes, although there might not be enough in one single serve, so doubling up might help.
Neon Sport Kinetic Intra-Workout Taste & Mixability
Neon Sport Kinetic will be initially made available in 3 flavours including; Strawberry Lemonade, Fruit Punch and Watermelon. If Blox and Xtend were anything to go by, Kinetic will be an excellent tasting and well mixing supplement.
Neon Sport Kinetic Intra-Workout Verdict
Neon Sport Kinetic offers a 10g serving of BCAAs, SAAs and an energy blend. You can’t really go wrong with extra amino acids, so depending on the price, Kinetic may be a suitable addition to your supplement routine, especially for during your workout.
