Metabolic Maintenance offers a product called BAM® which stands for Balanced Amino Maintenance. BAM®, which is offered in a powder or capsule form, offers energy and workout performance benefits without the calories found in energy drinks or pre-workout drinks.

BAM® Balanced Amino Maintenance includes a proprietary blend of free-form amino acids that are easily absorbed into the body, making them quickly available to support energy, be utilized for muscle protein synthesis, and to enhance detoxification. Each amino acid is from high-quality sources and carefully dosed to provide ratios commonly found in nature.

Benefits of BAM® Balanced Amino Maintenance

Increased Natural, No-Crash Energy

One of the biggest benefits of BAM® is providing energy without a crash. Most traditional energy drinks or pre-workout drinks use sugar, caffeine, or other fast energy sources that cause a crash shortly after.

Instead of a fast-energy/fast-crash method of providing energy, BAM® offers more natural forms of energy such as L-Arginine, L-Isoleucine, L-Alanine, L-Threonine, and Vitamin B-6. These amino acids as well as vitamin B-6 collectively help increase blood flow, are broken down as energy, and help the body better absorb energy from natural food sources. The result is a more natural, more sustained energy and reduction of fatigue.

Improved Workout Performance

BAM® also provides an influx of essential amino acids that help promote muscle building and protein synthesis. Amino acids such as L-Histidine HCI, L-Leucine, L-Lysine HCI, L-Valine, L-Glutamine, L-Methionine, and L-Threonine help in the biosynthesis of protein. They help to build and repair muscles. These essential amino acids can help jumpstart muscle tissue recovery, and provide your body with the necessary nutrients to facilitate muscle synthesis and maintenance.

No-Calorie Energy & Athletic Performance

BAM® is offered in a capsule form that has 0 calories, or in a naturally-flavored powder that uses strawberry whole fruit powder and monk fruit extract for flavor and has only 25 calories per serving.

Increased Cognitive Function

Several of the supplements in BAM® can help promote cognitive performance. L-Phenylalanine, L-Threonine, Vitamin B-6, and Chromium help with nerve function or cognitive function, helping to regulate mood and improve cognitive function.

What does BAM® Balanced Amino Maintenance contain?

The proprietary blend included in BAM® was specially designed by our nutritional experts to provide essential amino acids and vitamins for optimal workout and energy performance.

The BAM proprietary blend includes:

L-Histidine HCI

L-Histidine HCI is an essential amino acid that plays a role in protein-building. It can also help address upper respiratory concerns and promote joint comfort and mobility.


L-Leucine is an essential amino acid and is one of the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). This amino acid stimulates greater protein synthesis than any other amino acid.


L-Phenylalanine is a precursor to key neurotransmitters and plays a role in regulating mood. It can also assist in balancing neural and cognitive functions.

L-Lysine HCI

L-Lysine HCI is a building block of protein and can help with athletic performance.


L-Arginine increases blood flow, helping provide energy to the body and increasing stamina.


L-Valine is an essential amino acid that is also among the 3 branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). Valine assists in muscle synthesis and maintenance and plays an important role in muscle tissue repair.


L-Isoleucine is the third branched-chain amino acid and is broken down for energy. Isoleucine is known to boost energy levels and can assist the body in recovery from strenuous physical activity.


L-Glutamine detoxifies the body, improves muscle hydration, and promotes muscle growth. It can help the body recover more quickly from physical exercise.


L-Aline plays an essential role in supplying energy to the body and can help relieve or prevent fatigue.


L-Methionine builds bone strength, which can help in athletic performance.


L-Threonine helps improve cognitive function as well as supporting bones, muscles, and connective tissues.

Vitamin B-6

Vitamin B-6 is a multi-functional vitamin that offers several benefits to the body. These benefits include helping provide a healthy metabolism, assisting in nerve function, boosting levels of energy, supporting brain function, and helping derive energy for food.


Chromium helps keep the brain healthy while helping to absorb nutrients.
