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 providing 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.

9 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.

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.

  • Still making up my mind

    star

    I am going with satisfactory for now, not exactly sure what this is doing but I was suffering a lot of pain in my fingers that was becoming debilitating but since I added Taurine to my daily protocol the pain has lessened. Can't say it is the Taurine or if the Taurine has fixed something else that is contributing to the pain. I added it for healthy gall bladder etc which I am still evaluating.

    I take this product first thing on a empty stomach before a workout and my body responds really well. As a marathon runner I felt this really helps with the warming up and long distances in the early mornings.
