Supplementing Your Diet with Amino Acids

When we encounter disease, nutritional problems, or environmental toxins, amino acids can become very important.

There are an estimated 100,000+ proteins found in the human body.  Structural proteins build and renew every cell, organ, and system in the body.  Functional proteins, including enzymes, carry out the metabolic functions of life itself.  They are all made from combinations of essential and nonessential amino acids.

Supplementing a diet with amino acids, combined with healthy eating and adequate water intake, provides the nutritional support needed to maintain metabolic balance, build muscle, and repair damaged cells.  Additionally, they improve and stabilize mood, support and protect nerve function, balance your immune system, aid in chronic fatigue, keep your heart healthy and more.  Unlike amino acids derived from food sources, free form, pharmaceutical-grade amino acids require no digestion.  Absorption is rapid and complete.

The value of using a complete amino acid supplement ensures all of the amino acids are available when they are needed.  When you experience emotional or physical stress, including injury, inflammation or infection, your body requires an increased supply of amino acids for support, defense and repair.  Having these nutrients readily available in a form requiring no digestion for assimilation provides broad-based amino acid nutrients to prevent or improve conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, hypoglycemia, depression, and more.
