Amino acids are essential to life. They are central to virtually every function of the human body. All body tissues - every muscle, hair, nail, enzyme, and brain cell - is made of amino-acids. They are the precursors to happy and sad brain chemicals or neurotransmitters.
The pool of amino acids is highly dynamic, changing moment by moment by shifting the flow of metabolic pathways in response to multiple physiological signals. The benefits of taking amino-acids to improve your health can hardly be overstated.
They are central to the bio-chemistry of your body. They play a major role in nearly every chemical process that affects both physical and mental function. Ensuring a balanced and optimal intake of amino acids becomes critical for prevention as well as treatment of many chronic illnesses.
Discover the therapeutic potential of amino acids from improving libido, relieving pain, stimulate weight loss, slow ageing, ease pain, balance mental health, optimize gut function to boosting energy.
