What are the amino acid supplements?

A large proportion of our cells, muscles, and tissue is made up of amino acids, meaning they carry out many important bodily functions, such as giving cells their structure. They also play a key role in the transport and storage of nutrients. Amino acids have an influence on the function of organs, glands, tendons, and arteries. They are furthermore essential for healing wounds and repairing tissue, especially in the muscles, bones, skin, and hair as well as for the removal of all kinds of waste deposits produced in connection with the metabolism.

The importance of amino acids for human well-being is on the increase.

Unfortunately in the real world, countless factors are working to prevent our bodies from receiving a full and balanced supply of these all-important substances. Among these factors are the pollution caused by burning fossil fuels, the chemicals fed to cattle, the intensive use of chemicals in agriculture, and even habits such as smoking and drinking, all of which can prevent our bodies from fully using what we eat. Worse still is the amount of nutrition that is lost from our food through processing before we actually get to eat it...

By providing the body with optimal nutrition, amino acid supplements help to replace what is lost and in doing so promote well-being and vitality.

If the body is lacking in the minimum energy and nutrients, the body cannot carry out its bodily and mental functions. Without the necessary vitamins, proteins (amino acids), trace elements, and minerals, there is a risk of debilities and metabolic disorders which can have serious consequences.

The amino acid pool has to be right.

Almost every disease caused by civilisation is a result of imbalances in our metabolism. The amino-acid pool is jointly responsible for achieving a balanced metabolism.

The amino acid pool describes the entire amount of available free amino acids in the human body. The size of the pool amounts to around 120 to 130 grams in an adult male. If we consume protein in the diet, the protein in the gastrointestinal tract is broken down into individual amino acids and then put back together again as new protein. This complex biological process is called protein biosynthesis. The entire amino acid pool is transformed, or ‘exchanged’ three to four times a day. This means that the body has to be supplied with more amino acids, partly by protein biosynthesis, partly by the diet, or through the consumption of suitable dietary supplements.

The objective is that the amino acid pool is complete and maintained in the correct combination. If one or more amino acids are not available in sufficient quantities, the production of protein is weakened and the metabolism may only function in a limited way.

BCAA or Branched Chain Amino Acids are extremely important for building muscle. BCAA help with preventing muscle break down and play a key role in building new muscle mass. The human body cannot produce BCAA and so all BCAA’s need to be obtained from food and supplementation. BCAA supplements differ from other amino acid supplements because they are immediately taken up by the muscles and are not stored in the liver.
