    Overview :

    Amino Acids form the chief structure of proteins; many of these are essential for human growth, development, and nutrition. Simply put, they are the building blocks of the body. They contain nitrogen, which is not contained in fatty acids or sugars. Protein is vital to every living organism, from the smallest to the largest; all of these organisms are comprised of protein. In addition, protein is necessary to many chemical processes that sustain life. There are 1600 basic proteins, which make up the human body and they are all made from only 22 amino acids. As a result of digestion, protein is broken down to these 22 amino acids. Nine of the twenty-two are generally considered essential, which means that they cannot be manufactured by the body. The remainder are non-essential, which means that they can be manufactured by the body. When just one amino acid is deficient, serious health problems can occur. An amino acid deficiency may be caused by many factors, particularly a low-protein diet. Other factors include stress, trauma, infection, age, medications, and chemical imbalances within the body. It is important for amino acids to be kept in balance.

    Amino acids are required for many bodily functions:

    • Building cells and repairing tissues
    • Maintains and repairs muscles, tendons, skin, ligaments, organs (especially the heart and brain), glands, nails and hair,

    FAQ

    Frequently Asked Questions - Amino Acids

    • What are amino acids?

      Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are critical for the body to function properly. Protein has an important job in building and rebuilding body tissue and providing the body with nitrogen, an essential element for all living beings. They are absolutely vital and have wide-ranging roles, including the repair and maintenance of muscles, organs, ligaments, connective tissues, glands, nails, hair, skin, etc.  Amino acids are considered the building blocks of life a deficiency in even one of them can have detrimental effects on one’s health and well-being.

       

      There are both essential and nonessential amino acids. Essential amino acids must be obtained from the diet while nonessential amino acids are made by the body.

       The following is a list of the essential and nonessential amino acids:

       ESSENTIAL

      Isoleucine

      Leucine

      Lysine

      Methionine

      Phenylalanine

      Threonine

      Tryptophan

      Valine

       

      NONESSENTIAL

      Alanine

      Arginine

      Asparagine

      Aspartic acid

      Cystine (cysteine)

      Glutamic acid

      Glycine

      Histidine

      Hydroxylysine

      Hydroxyproline

      Proline

      Serine

      Tyrosine

    • What is the difference between essential and non-essential amino acids?

      Generally speaking, there are twenty critical amino acids used by cells in protein biosynthesis. Nine of these amino acids are termed “essential” and need to be acquired from dietary sources; the body cannot produce them. “Nonessential” amino acids, on the other hand, are produced in the body from other amino acids when given an adequate supply of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.  Nevertheless, in certain life stages or during certain situations even some of these nonessential amino acids are required in such substantial quantities they are considered “conditionally essential”.

    • Are the amino acids in Amino Acid Complex “free form”?

      Yes, they are in free form.

    • Why is there an “L” in front of the amino acids on the label?

      Amino acids are by definition any molecule that contains both amine (amino) and carboxyl functional groups.  All amino acids share this common chemical "backbone" that consists of a carbon atom to which four substituent groups are bonded: a nitrogen-containing amino group (NH2), a carboxyl group (COOH), a hydrogen (H+) atom and an "R" group. 

      The "R" group or side chain varies in electric charge, size, structure and solubility in water, giving each amino acid its distinct chemical properties.  Since all amino acids (except glycine) contain at least one asymmetrical chiral carbon atom, which produces a stereoisomers (mirror image), they exist in nature as two forms (stereoisomers).  The forms are designated as either D- or L-, depending on their structural relationship to a right- or left-handed reference point.  While both forms are found in biological systems, all amino acids constituting proteins are composed of the L-form. DL-amino acids are a 50/50 mixture of both the D- and L- form of the molecule.

    • Is 5-HTP fat soluble?

      5-HTP is an amino acid and the absorption of amino acids in the intestine depends on transporter molecules, so solubility in fat or water is not instrumental for absorption. In addition, the research shows that 5-HTP is effective whether you take it with or without meals.

    • What is the difference between L-Carnitine and Acetyl L-Carnitine?

      L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring substance produced by the body, made up of the amino acids lysine and methionine and requires iron, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and C for production. Acetyl L-Carnitine is this substance bound to acetic acid, an important co-factor in the production of acetyl CoA, a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. In the brain, acetylcholine is involved in learning and memory and stimulates muscle tissue.

      - 5-HTP 100 mg - from seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia (shrub)
      - L-Lysine 500 mg – Synthesized, nature identical

    • What are the most popular forms of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)?

      The most popular form of branched chain amino acids or BCAAs are valine, leucine, and isoleucine. These three essential amino acids make up one third of muscle protein, and are responsible for: rebuilding stressed muscles, promoting quick recovery, and preventing muscles from breaking down.

    • How do regular amino acids and branched chain amino acids differ?

      Branched chain amino acids, also called BCAAs, are the combination of three essential amino acids—valine, leucine, and isoleucine. Because they make up one third of muscle protein, branched chain amino acids are particularly important for anyone who lifts weights. Branched chain amino acids differ from amino acids because they are metabolized in the muscle, rather than in the liver. This means that after digestion occurs, BCAAs can be burned as energy-producing fuel, or they can be used to build new proteins. BCAAs rebuild are ideal for athletes who participate in endurance activities as well as bodybuilders dieting for a show, as they rebuild stressed muscles, promote quick recovery, give you extra energy, and prevent muscles from breaking down.
