Essential Amino Acids The Building Blocks of Health
Amino acids are organic compounds composed of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, along with a variable side chain group. Unlike nonessential amino acids, essential amino acids can’t be made by your body and must be obtained through your diet and/or supplementation.
Essential amino acids perform varied roles in your body. They’re involved in important processes such as tissue growth, energy production, immune function and nutrient absorption.
Supplementing with certain essential amino acids may help improve mood, boost exercise performance, prevent muscle loss and promote weight loss.
This patch combines 8 essential amino acids which include the three BCAA’s as well as tyrosine which is used to improve alertness, attention and focus.
Their Roles in Your Body
Essential amino acids perform a variety of roles in your body. They are involved in important processes, such as, tissue growth, energy production, immune function and nutrient absorption.
Phenylalanine: is a precursor for the neurotransmitters tyrosine, dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. It plays an integral role in the structure and function of proteins, enzymes, and the production of other amino acids.
Valine: is the first of three BCAA’s (branched-chain amino acids). It stimulates muscle growth, muscle regeneration, and energy production.
Threonine: is a principal part of structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin, which are important components of the skin and connective tissue. It also plays a role in fat metabolism and immune function.
Tryptophan: Though often associated with causing drowsiness, tryptophan has many other functions. It is needed to maintain proper nitrogen balance and is a precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter which regulates your appetite, sleep and mood.
Methionine: plays an important role in metabolism and detoxification. It’s also necessary for tissue growth and the absorption of zinc, selenium, and minerals that are vital for good health.
Leucine: is the second BACC (branched-chain amino acid). It is critical for protein synthesis and muscle repair. It also helps regulate blood sugar levels, stimulates wound healing, and produces growth hormones.
Isoleucine: is the last of the three BACC’s (branched chain amino acids). It is heavily concentrated in muscle tissue to aid in metabolism, immune function, hemoglobin production, and energy regulation.
Lysine: plays a major role in protein synthesis, hormone and enzyme production, and the absorption of calcium. It is also important for energy production, immune function, and the production of collagen and elastin.
Fortunately, these vital compounds are found in Amino Fitness to help you meet your daily needs.
