Amino Acids Supplements
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, but their function in your body go beyond just being “building blocks”. They are part of nearly every system and function within your body from enzymes to hormones, from metabolism to the brain and mental processes and much more.
The nine essential amino acids are not able to be produced by the body and therefore need to be attained from the foods that you consume, such as meats, dairy products, eggs and careful combining of certain plant based protein sources. However when our daily protein intake is low, natural supplements that provide additional amino acids may be a great option to fill any nutritional needs.

Amino Acids Info
There are 21 different amino acids and they are the building blocks of life - the body uses them to synthesise protein. Twenty percent of the human body is made up of protein, which plays a crucial role in almost all biological processes.
There are thousands of different proteins in the human body. They provide all sorts of functions essential to our survival. A large proportion of our cells, muscles and tissue is made up of amino acids. They give cells their structure, they play a key role in the transport and the storage of nutrients, they also have an influence on the function and integrity of organs, glands, tendons and arteries. They are the backbone of the many thousands of enzymes and they are essential for healing wounds and repairing tissue, especially in the muscles, bones, skin and hair.
By maintaining an ideal daily intake of amino acids your body and brain are able to function at their best.
Some examples include L-Arginine to support healthy circulation; L-Theanine supports a calm state of being, soothes mental tension and although not a sedative, may assist in achieving a good night sleep.
A girl's best friend...
This product is a game changer. After years of ever worsening PMS symptoms - bloat, cravings, acne, terrible mood swings, feeling psycho for 3 weeks out of 4 - I finally broke and decided to try supplements, I didn't like the person I was becoming. After reading through these reviews I decide to try the Go Hormone Harmony. Ah-may-zing!!! After only one month I feel like a new woman! Only one day of psycho irrationality, shorter, a less painful period, less acne and bloat, and just generally feeling all around happier. My new best friend. I am recommending this product to all my girlfriends and will be giving it to my daughters once they are older. Thank you Healthpost!!
L-glutamine for gut healing..
I was diagnosed with coeliac disease a couple of months ago. My gut was so shot, I couldn't really eat anything without feeling awful. I'd heard L-glutamine is good for the gut so I brought some to put in my lacto-free smoothies. I've improved a lot since I started taking it. I still have a long way to go, but its helped heaps. I've brought my second lot :) I'd recommend this.. but taking too much made my guts rumbly. Everything in moderation ;)
Take it every day for the last 5 years
It's helps with my moods I tried going off it just to see if I really need it or not and noticed a change so I'm back on it and have been taking it for a least 5 years now.
