Our bodies produce most of their own amino acids due to the protein makeup of the Amino Acids. There are 10 amino acids that our bodies don’t produce. We can only get these Amino Acids through the food we eat or supplementation.
Amino acids are made up of proteins that our bodies are unable to store like they do fats and carbohydrates. Amino Acids are continuously recycled through the removal and addition of nitrogen. This constant recycling enables our bodies to carefully regulate protein balance. However, the recycling process is inherently inefficient, so different intakes are needed for different people.
Ten of these amino acids can only come from nutritional sources. Our cells are in a constant cycle of breakdown and regeneration. This creates a constant ongoing and variable need for these nutritionally derived Amino Acids.
The constant and sometimes increased need for dietary increases in amino acids is from constant breakdown and regeneration of the body’s cells. Our bodies use Amino Acids for cellular regeneration. These Aminos are derived from the foods we eat and aren’t always adequate for optimal cellular regeneration.
This creates a need for supplementation. We use an Amino Acid product that blends the most important ones into a single formulary.
These important Aminos are; Carnitine, Citrulline, Lysine, Arginine + Ornithine jointly, and Glutamine. They are all discussed separately in the pages ahead.
Improves fat metabolism and energy, reduces recovery times and promotes muscle building potential.
Converted to Arginine in the kidneys. Longer lasting effect than just Arginine alone. Some research is looking at the benefits of helping with ED. Promotes vasodilation, blood flow, immune system.
Lysine is very important in the creation of carnitine, which converts fatty acids into energy and also lowers cholesterol levels. L-lysine also seems to play a role in absorbing calcium and helps the body form collagen, which aids in the growth and maintenance of bones and connective tissue.
Your body uses ornithine to synthesize arginine, then arginine is used to produce nitric oxide. Nitric oxide regulates smooth muscle contraction, which allows it to relax the muscles in blood vessels. Promotes vasodilation and blood flow.
The amino acid ornithine is a perfectly-suited supplement to arginine. It is reduced to arginine in the body, but this occurs very slowly, so that its effects last a long time. The combination of both amino acids improves the overall regeneration capability of the body and leads to a noticeable increase in vitality.
Glutamine plays key roles in protein metabolism, cell volumizing, and anti-catabolism. Glutamine also increases your ability to secrete Human Growth Hormone, which helps metabolize body fat and support new muscle growth. Glutamine’s anti-catabolism ability prevents the breakdown of your muscles.
These Aminos are available in Intramuscular Injections (IM) or through Intravenous Infusion (IV)
