What are amino acids?
Amino acids are the basic units that make up proteins. They have three parts: an amino group, a carboxyl group, and a side chain. Each type of amino acid has a different side chain, which gives it unique properties. Amino acids join together to form proteins by peptide bonds. The human body needs amino acids to create proteins and other essential molecules. There are 20 different types of amino acids, and 9 of them are essential and must come from our diet.
What are essential amino acids?
Essential amino acids are the nine types of amino acids that the body cannot make on its own and must be obtained from a diet. They are necessary for the production of proteins and other important molecules in the body.
What’s the difference between Whey Protein and EAAs?
While both essential amino acids and whey protein can be used to support muscle growth and recovery, essential amino acid supplements are generally considered a better option.
Although whey protein is a complete protein source that contains all nine essential amino acids, it also contains non-essential amino acids, which the body may not need in large quantities. Additionally, the digestion and absorption of whey protein may be slower compared to essential amino acid supplements.
Essential amino acid supplements, on the other hand, contain only the amino acids necessary for protein synthesis, allowing for more efficient and rapid absorption by the body. This makes them an ideal choice for those looking to maximize muscle growth and recovery.
Furthermore, essential amino acids are crucial for various bodily functions and are required in specific amounts to support protein synthesis. The availability of all essential amino acids is important for muscle growth, repair, and maintenance. Thus, supplementing with essential amino acids can help ensure that the body has an adequate supply of the necessary building blocks for protein synthesis, leading to better results in terms of muscle growth and recovery.
Is the product acceptable for Vegetarians? For Vegans?
Vegans do not eat any animal products, while vegetarians consume animal byproducts like eggs, dairy, honey, and wool derivatives. "Invisible Force" is not suitable for vegans as some of its amino acids are derived from wool, but it may be consumed by vegetarians who are okay with wool derivatives.
Where is Invisible Force made?
We have two manufacturing partners, one in Tennessee and one in Wisconsin. Both are major nutrition manufactures and are NSF® certified.
Where do the ingredients in the formula come from?
They come from high quality sources all over the world, including the USA, China and Vietnam.
Does Invisible Force invent this technology? Does it own the patent?
No, we partner with the company that owns the exclusive license though.
Where can I view the patent?
Where can I learn more about how BCAAs on their own do not work? I’ve always heard these are great nutritional supplements.
It's understandable to be confused about the effectiveness of BCAAs, especially since the sports nutrition industry has been promoting them for almost a decade. While there's some good information on Google, there's also a lot of conflicting information. It's important to remember that BCAAs are fantastic and critical ingredients, but they don't build muscle on their own. Check out this link at the end of this paragraph for the definitive description and rationale for BCAAs. https://aminoauthority.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/bcaas-myth-or-reality-by-dr-wolfe.pdf
How do you test the product for potency and purity?
A battery of tests are completed both before and after production. Each ingredient is identity tested as well as tested for microbiological and heavy metal conformance to specifications and global regulations including some of the toughest in the world (e.g. markets like Australia, Canada and Japan). Additionally, after manufacturing the product is tested for microbiology/heavy metals again as well as the potency of the amino acids (our patented EAA technology requires precision ratios). Upon verification that all specifications are met or exceeded, a Certificate of Analysis is generated as well as retain samples as per FDA regulatory requirements.
When’s the best time to take INVISIBLE FORCE?
The best time to take amino acids depends on your fitness goals. Generally, taking them before or after exercise can help with muscle recovery and growth. However, some people also take them in the morning or at night to support overall protein intake throughout the day. It's important to follow the dosage instructions and consult with a healthcare professional before starting any supplement regimen.
Do I need to take Whey Protein when taking INVISBLE FORCE?
There’s no need, however INVISIBLE FORCE is light and refreshing. We know some people who like to also take a whey protein shake during the day because it makes them feel full.
What about BCAAs?
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) that are often used as supplements by athletes and fitness enthusiasts. However, they are not as effective as essential amino acids (EAAs), which provide a complete spectrum of amino acids required for building and repairing muscle tissue. While BCAAs can be a useful supplement, they should not be a substitute for EAAs.
Does INVISIBLE FORCE contain lactose?
Nope, it’s lactose-free. No uncomfortable bloat.
Does INVISIBLE FORCE contain GMOs?
No GMOs here.
Why does INVISIBLE FORCE mix clear?
Other brands add dyes to match their flavor…red for berry, for example. We didn’t feel the need. Dyes don’t help with performance, so why bother?
Will INVISIBLE FORCE help me lose weight?
Absolutely. Not only does our product have fewer calories than whey protein, it helps build lean muscle which in turn helps burn fat
Is there a downside to taking INVISIBLE FORCE two, three, four times a day? What about a double scoop?
There’s no downside, just diminishing returns. For example, research shows a 57% improvement in muscle synthesis with one scoop and 78% with two. Is there a benefit – sure! But it’s not double for two scoops. If you do choose to take the product multiple times a day, it’s best to space them out: let the body use the EAAs as fuel until depletion, then refuel. Rinse and repeat.
Why not just eat more protein-rich food?
We’re a big proponent of nutrition through real, quality foods. The reality is, though, that you don’t always have a chicken breast handy! Additionally, it takes you hours to digest the protein in the food to release the EAAs that build muscle…and sometimes you just don’t want to wait. Foods like steak also come with cholesterol and salt that aren’t friendly to a healthy lifestyle. INVISIBLE FORCE is simply pure muscle building power, nothing more or less.
