Silk Amino Acid (SAA) Building Blocks

  • Increases Stamina

  • Speeds Recovery

  • Builds Muscle

BLOX takes aminos to a whole new level, by using Silk Amino Acid (SAA). Silk Amino Acids are a remarkable and innovative Amino Acid Sequence. SAAs are a chain of eighteen plus particular amino acids, but out of all the silk amino acids only 5 stand out to be the most importent (L-Alanine, Glycine, L-Serine, L-Valine, L-Threonine). Silk Amino Acids are more commenly found in health car products such as lotions, soaps, hair, and skin products. Resent studies have been shown to provide a variety of biological effects in animals, ranging from enhancing exercise performance to lowering blood cholesterol and blood glucose levels to possessing antioxidant and antiviral activities.

How to Use:

Take one (1) scoop with 8oz of ice cold water before, during, or after your workout. Use once daily on training days and throughout the day on non-training days.

Silk Amino Acids (SAAs)

As the name implies, silk amino acids (SAAs) are derived from the protein in silk.

The protein is hydrolyzed to produce polypeptides (short protein chains) comprised mainly of the amino acids alanine, glycine, serine, valine, and threonine. While each of these amino acids provide specific benefits in the body individually, research shows that supplementing them together in this unique form delivers a plethora of benefits.

Although you may think that silk amino acids are brand new, they are actually not all that new.

You may have actually used them without even realizing it. But instead of consuming them as you would in a supplement, you probably put them on your hair or skin. SAAs are popular in the cosmetic industry and can be found in shampoos and cosmetics.  That's because they can penetrate hair and skin and help to moisturize them. But don't go guzzling your shampoo. You can now get SAAs in supplement form.

The most recent study on SAAs comes from Korea and shows that six weeks of silk amino acid supplementation in mice showed some impressive changes in performance and hormone levels.

The Korean scientists reported that the mice getting silk amino acids for six weeks more than doubled their exercise endurance. Having better endurance not only means that you can go harder and longer during your cardio workouts, but it can also boost your weight workouts. Mainly it can help you to complete more reps with a given weight. The end result can lead to greater muscle growth and strength gains as well as enhanced fat loss.

The mice getting the silk amino acids also increased their muscle mass by 15% as compared to a control group.

The increased muscle mass was concomitant with increased fat loss. In other words, silk amino acids may help to simultaneously gain muscle and lose body fat. This may be due to the fact the mice supplemented with silk amino acids had boosted their testosterone levels by more than double during exercise. Having higher testosterone levels during workouts can increase muscle strength and muscle growth. Plus, they simultaneously decrease their exercise cortisol levels to almost half. Since cortisol interferes with testosterone's anabolic actions, lower cortsiol further facilitates the muscle strength and growth-promoting properties of testosterone.

Other studies have shown that silk amino acids also offer health benefits.

They have even been found to lower blood cholesterol, triglyceride, and glucose levels, as well as act as a potent antioxidant.
