Amino Acids - 11 reasons why they could drastically improve your health!

Amino acids: what they Are and why YOU NEED them!

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Our bodies use them to create or synthesize proteins, heal injuries, create hormones and enzymes, and perform many other critical health functions.

One significant function in the body that you may have heard a lot about is detoxing.

The term is often used when referring to some magic-like substance from a Brazilian rainforest or made from unicorn horns but detoxing the body requires proteins (amino acids), vitamins, enzymes and oxygen to do its job properly. 

Out of the hundreds of functions your liver performs each day, ensuring toxins are safely removed from your blood is probably the most important and the most farthest reaching in terms of overall health.

Optimal liver function is critical!

For example, when you break down protein in your gut ammonia is created, which your liver converts it into a substance called urea. Urea actually has some very important functions but we will discuss that in another blog post, however like anything "the dose makes the poison" and urea still needs to be eliminated by your kidneys through your urine.

Any wastes your liver cannot use are converted so they can be either carried out by bile into your small intestine or carried by the blood to your kidneys.

Your liver detoxifies harmful substances in two steps.

  1. The first step uses enzymes and oxygen to burn toxins, especially fatty ones.  This way, they are more water soluble, making them easier for the body to eliminate.
  2. The second detox step combines partially processed toxins with sulfur or amino acids so they can be removed through bile or urine.

It's important for both steps of the detoxification process to be in balance while getting enough nutrition for each step to work.

If toxins aren't broken down fast enough during the first step, they are recirculated through your blood until the liver has the material it needs to handle them. Kind of like when you're trying to find a parking space at the mall and you keep going around in circles looking for a parking stall.

On the other hand, if toxins are broken down too quickly in the first stage but the packaging in the second stage can’t keep up, the partially-processed toxins build up in your body. So you found a parking stall only to get inside the mall and theres a line up at your favourite store and no one is happy with the wait.

These free radicals can do more harm than the original toxins. When you're exposed to a heavy load of toxins through the environment or diet, especially over a long period of time, the nutrients needed for the second stage can become exhausted, preventing your liver from handling the load.

By now the need for sufficient protein and nutrients for your liver to work optimally should be looking pretty important... but if not, try this on for size.

Your liver also breaks down or deactivates certain hormones - like insulin, estrogen and cortisol -the stress hormone, and it clears them from your blood. Do you think having extra insulin, estrogen or cortisol floating around in your system would help with weight loss, muscle gain or better health?

Nope, so I guess we need a good source or protein, right?

By consuming high quality amino acids, like AMINO PRO, we:

  1. Reduce ammonia – see our next blog post on Ammonia (next week)
  2. Reduce stress on the digestive system from the reduction of ammonia and the effort required to digest food
  3. Reduced load on the liver, allowing the liver to remove toxins and hormones that can make weight loss, recovery and healing harder and less efficient.
  4. Reduced load on the kidneys from the reduction in urea
  5. The above contribute to Improved digestion and Absorption of nutrients,
  6. Healing and recovery,
  7. Skin and hair quality,
  8. Libido (who doesn't want a better sex drive, right?),
  9. Energy (I've got young kids so I need all the energy I can get!),
  10. Mental clarity
  11. Better Sleep and more...

 

While it is true that you can get good quality proteins from food, the unfortunate fact is that much of the protein in the food you eat is NOT converted into Amino Acids (your body's building blocks).  It is instead lost to nitrogen and ammonia waste that your body must get rid of.

So yes sadly, most of that expensive post-workout steak is calories you may or may not want, a stress on your digestive system, and is in actuality less than 25% of its protein value in actual amino acid absorption. If you're a Vegan or Vegetarian using plant based proteins that number is 15% or less!  

Just 10 caps of AMINO PRO™ = 60g of Ribeye steak or 800g of cooked Quinoa. 
See Nitrogen (protein) Utilization

Because of this, almost everyone is lacking or deficient in protein without realizing it, and this deficiency manifests as a nagging injury, difficulty losing weight, poor energy and metabolism, low libido, bad digestion, poor skin and hair quality or weak immune response.

The symptoms of protein and amino acid deficiency are often something you are aware of but you just can’t put your finger on.  It affects so much of your health, energy and wellbeing.

However, whether you’re a hard-charging athlete, have an injury, need added hormone or neurotransmitter support, the unique formula in AMINO PRO™ is optimal for improving health and performance with 99% absorption and utilization.

This unique formula gives you all the advantages of eating an entire steak but with only 0.4 calories!

All in a convenient, portable, instantly digestible capsule that you can wash down with your favorite drink. 

Finish your workout and wash down some AMINO PRO™ and get the equivalent of eating an entire steak without having to prepare, cook, cut, chew, digest or do anything other than swallowing a few capsules.

Don’t get me wrong!  I’m all about real whole foods like steak, eggs and dairy. However, when you’re traveling, training, or your day is just plain full and you have just minutes to figure out how to get all the protein you need, AMINO PRO™ is the perfect solution. 

Tested.  Safe.   Effective.  Nothing else like it!

Each capsule contains 540mg of the perfect blend of amino acids in a vegetable gelatine capsule with NO excipients or added ingredients of any kind!
