Amino VITAL Teams with AJGA to Provide Nutritional Hydration to Golf’s Next Generation

Trusted Sports Nutrition Brand Becomes Title Sponsor and Official Health and Wellness Partner

(Raleigh, N.C.) - Amino VITAL has partnered with the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf. The four-year agreement includes support of the Amino VITAL / Joey D Golf Junior Championship, April 15-17, at The Seagate Country Club in Delray Beach, Florida. Amino VITAL will also sponsor the Amino VITAL Operation Hydration program and be the Official Golf Fitness Sponsor of the AJGA.

“Amino VITAL is proud to align with the AJGA and the exceptional platform they provide to support aspiring young players. Their dedication to helping athletes perform their best mirrors the underlying principles of our advanced sports nutrition products,” said Jerry Piercy, Ajinomoto’s Wellness & Sport Nutrition Business Manager. “We salute the AJGA's commitment to inform and educate players and parents about the critical role healthy hydration plays in support of improved energy, focus, performance and recovery in training and competition.”

Amino VITAL delivers five key amino acids crucial to enhancing an athlete’s performance - the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine and valine, plus glutamine and arginine. These amino acids have been incorporated into four optimal formulas, creating the Amino VITAL Synergy System, which provides the perfect combination of components for each step of the performance process: energy, focus, endurance and recovery. Amino VITAL has been perfected into an easy-to-mix powder that can be dissolved quickly in water, or taken on its own, to provide a great-tasting sports nutrition product.

Amino VITAL is effective and safe for use by athletes of all ages, making it the perfect sports nutrition product for aspiring junior golfers. Amino VITAL provides natural energy with no caffeine, allowing golfers to perform at their best, on the course or in the training room. As part of the Amino VITAL Operation Hydration initiative, Amino VITAL products will be provided to players during all 115 AJGA tournaments to keep them focused and well hydrated.

“This partnership with Amino VITAL allows AJGA members, parents and staff to have access to resources necessary to maintaining nutrition and hydration at golf tournaments,” said Jason Etzen, AJGA Chief Business Officer. “With Amino VITAL as an AJGA Official Partner, health and wellness will remain at the forefront of our organization.”
