by NutraBio represents a breakthrough in amino acid supplementation:
AminoTherapy amino acids contain absolutely no fillers, excipients, flavors,
sweeteners or additives of any kind, unless absolutely necessary. Just 100% pure active amino acids for
maximum bio-availability and optimized results. Other manufacturers, in an
effort to keep costs down, dilute their products with cheap fillers and add chemical excipients to increase their manufacturing output,
we don't! NutraBio's AminoTherapy amino acids
undergo state of the art analysis to insure zero tolerance for impurities and
are manufactured under the strictest standards producing the highest quality and
purest supplements available anywhere.
Acids Stacks are amino acids synergistically stacked together for the
purpose of combining multiple amino acids in popular and convenient blends.
Unlike most manufacturers these stacks contain 100% active aminos with
absolutely no added fillers or excipients.
Amino acids are the building
blocks of protein in the body and are essential for the synthesis of
structural proteins, enzymes, some hormones and neurotransmitters. Amino
acids are also involved in numerous metabolic pathways that affect exercise
metabolism. Consequently, it has been suggested that athletes involved in
intense training require additional protein in the diet or that they should
supplement their diet with specific amino acids.
There are twenty amino acids
which are coded for DNA and therefore are used for protein synthesis. Of
these twenty, humans can only produce ten within their body. These ten are known as
non-essential amino acids since it is not essential that we get them through
food or supplementation because our bodies can produce them. The ten
essential amino acids that we can produce are alanine, asparagine, aspartic
acid, cysteine, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, proline, serine and
tyrosine. Tyrosine is produced from phenylalanine, so if the diet is
deficient in phenylalanine, tyrosine will be required as well.
The other ten must be
supplied in the food we eat or through supplementation. Failure to obtain
enough of even one of the ten essential amino acids can result in a
degradation of the body's proteins, (your muscle) to obtain the one amino
acid that is needed. Unlike fat and starch, the human body does not store
excess amino acids for later use so the amino acids must be in the food we
eat every day.
The essential amino acids are arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine,
lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. These
amino acids are required in the diet because the human body does not have
all the the enzymes required for the biosynthesis of all of the amino acids.
Below is a list of the
twenty amino acids that are coded by DNA for use in protein synthesis. There
are many other amino acids such as ornithine and GABA for example, that have
important uses in our body but are not used in protein synthesis. Creatine
is also considered an amino acid and is actually a combination of three amino acids -
Arginine, Glycine and Methionine.
