AMINO ACID COMPLEX
When you're feeling fatigued or weak, Amino Acid Complex's will help boost
Protein is the second most abundant substance in our body, aside from water.
Proteins are composed of amino acids, linked together by peptide bonds. When
we eat protein the body must break these bonds in the digestive tract. Then
single amino acids, or amino acids in short chains, are absorbed into the
body, where they are reassembled into whatever substance the body needs.
Some amino acids can be manufactured in the body from other amino acids and
are thus called non-essential. They are alanine, aspartic acid, arginine,
citrulline, glutamic acid, glycine, hydroxyglumatic acid, hydroxyproline,
norleucine, proline, and serine.
The amino acids that the body cannot produce and need to be taken in through
the diet are called essential. They are histidine, isoleucine, leucine,
lysine, methionine, cysteine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, threonine,
tryptophan, and valine. Branched chain amino acids have a branch in their
structure. They are leucine, isoleucine and valine.
Amino acid complexes can be used for many different health and performance
enhancing purposes. Recently high protein diets have made protein a popular
supplement for weight loss. Protein slows the rate at which sugar enters the
body. By avoiding spikes in blood sugar protein minimizes the storage of
sugar as fat. Individuals with blood sugar imbalances, like diabetes and
hypoglycemia, will benefit from protein’s regulation of blood sugar. Protein
also builds muscle tissue, which burns more energy than other body tissue
and can lead to weight loss. Athletes, people who perform physical labour
and anyone who is physically active requires protein to repair their tissue
and build more lean tissue. People who are recovering from illness or long
periods of inactivity require protein to rebuild their body tissue. The
immune system is dependent on protein to make cells that protect our body.
Frequent colds, flus and chronic infections are signs that the body may need
The benefit to using amino acid supplements over protein is that the amino
acids are easier for the body to absorb. There are a large variety of amino
acid supplements and amino acid processing techniques. In general, look for
amino acid supplements prefaced by the letter L (such as L-arginine). These
are more similar to the amino acids in the body than are amino acid
supplements prefaced by the letter D. Amino acid supplements are available
as tablets, powder, liquid and capsules. Higher quality formulas use
superior processing techniques, have the amino acids in proper ratios for
optimal absorption and avoid adding binders and fillers. Here are some of
the more common processing techniques and types of amino complexes:
Free-Form – Free form amino acids do not have to be digested. They
are absorbed through the small intestine, into bloodstream and become
quickly available to muscle or other tissues. They help to prevent muscle
Di-Tripeptides - Two or three molecule amino acids that are quickly
digested and absorbed. May significantly increase the amount of amino acids
that the muscle takes in because of the slightly slower rate of intake.
Protein tablets – Protein powder is compressed into tablets for easy
intake. This protein is no different than the protein powder supplements.
Amino acids are still in protein chains and the body still needs to break
Branched chain amino acids – These amino acids have a branch in their
structure. When taken in by the muscle the branch can be broken to release
energy. Muscles can use this energy during contractions. Branched chain
supplements can have different ratios. Optimal ratio for normal use is 2:1:1
(leucine : isoleucine : valine).
There are many reason why someone might benefit from taking Amino Acid
supplements including: age, drug use, medications, strenuous exercise,
infections, and vitamin deficiencies. Amino acids can help to speed recovery
after a surgery or physical trauma. It is also important for those who have
difficulties eating solid food simply because they are not getting the
protein they need. Those with conditions such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's,
Dementia, Depression, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue, and Liver
Disease can also benefit from general amino acid supplementation.
The strategy behind using amino acids for optimal uptake into the muscles is
a science unto its own. If you are interested in optimizing your athletic
performance obtain more information about amino acids from reputable fitness
Do not take high amounts of supplemental amino acids if you have impaired
kidney function. Pregnant women should only consume amino acids under the
supervision of a health professional. Certain amino acids can be toxic in
excessive amounts, including aspartic acid, glutamic acid, homocysteine,
cysteine, serine, and tryptophan. Take amino acid supplements at least 1/2
hour before or after a meal to maximize their absorption. If you take an
individual amino acid supplement for longer than one month, take it with an
amino acid complex. This will ensure that you do not deplete the levels of
any amino acid in the body.
