WHAT ARE AMINO ACIDS AND HOW DO THEY BENEFIT ME?
Amino acids are crucial components of protein molecules, which are critical to almost all biological processes. They allow more efficient use of proteins, which in turn, provides an array of positive results.
Amino acids provide a host of benefits including:
Increased Energy Levels
New Muscle Growth
Regulation of Metabolic Processes
Reduction of Fatigue and Recovery Time, During and After Strenuous Activity
Improved Mood and Athletic Performance
Prevention of Muscle Loss
Amino acid supplementation can help to align your metabolism, balance your hormones, and infuse your body with the essential nutrition that it needs to perform at the healthiest level.
The most efficient way to use amino acid supplements is to introduce them via subcutaneous injections. A tiny insulin needle is used to inject the nutrients directly into the fat surrounding the abdomen.
ABOUT BCAA's: BRANCHED CHAIN AMINO ACIDS
Branched Chain Amino Acids are a group of three essential amino acids, which your body produces. When these levels are low, you must replenish them either through diet or supplements.
Supplements are available in many forms, including powders, pills, and liquids. The efficacy of ingested forms are however, sub-par compared to injection.
BCAA injections completely avoid the digestive system and absorbed directly into the body. Therapeutic dosages are determined by a physician.
BCAA’s are known to assist in both muscle retention and amplifying fat loss, especially when on a calorie restricted diet. BCAA’s contain 3 of the 9 essential amino acids:
Assists in the Regulation of Blood Sugar Levels
Encourages Growth Hormone Production
Promotes Wound Healing
Promotes Protein Synthesis and Muscle Repair
Involved in Muscle Metabolism
Immune System Function
Muscle Growth Stimulation and Regeneration
L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid composite, derived from the essential amino acids, Lysine and Methionine. This nutrient prevents fat from being stored through oxidation by shuttling the fats directly towards the mitochondria, the body’s internal metabolic furnace.
L-Carnitine is also known to increase the number of androgen receptors in muscles, creating an optimal environment to build lean muscle. This amino acid derivative has also been used to treat heart and circulatory system disorders.
L-Carnitine has long been a popular ‘go-to’ supplement in the fitness world and has since gone mainstream due to its positive effects.
