Essential Amino Acids

The body needs 20 different amino acids to grow and function properly. Though all 20 of these are important, only nine amino acids are classified as essential and must be obtained through diet. Our capsule comes with all the 9 essential amino acids to boost athletic performance and improve mood.

Why take Amino Acids?


MUSCLE

Prevent muscle breakdown and preserve lean body mass. They also maintain muscle protein synthesis, and improve muscle recovery.


ENERGY

Amino acids reduce fatigue, regulate mood, improve athletic performance and strength in both men and women.


SKIN

Amino acids regulate protein synthesis and are highly safe for humans. They build collagen in the skin and provoke different healing responses.


FOCUS

Amino acids lead to improved focus and increased happiness. Tryptophan is responsible for production of serotonin in the body.

Ingrediemts

L-Histidinee, L-isoleucine, L-leucine, L-lysine, L-methionine, L-Phenylalanine, L-threonine, L-valine, L-tryptophan.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are amino acids?

    Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. When proteins are digested, amino acids are left. The body uses amino acids to make proteins to simply help the human body grow, break down food and repair body tissue. Amino acids may also be used as a supply of energy by the body.

  • How many essential amino acids are there?

    Out of a group of 20 amino acids, only 9 are considered essential. 

  • Why are there only 9 essential amino acids out of 20?

    There are 3 groups amino acids can be divided in. Those include: 

    ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS

    Essential proteins can’t be created by the body. As a result, they need to come from food.The 9 essential proteins are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.

    NONESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS

    Nonessential means that our anatomical bodies produce those amino acids, even when we don’t obtain them from the food we eat. Nonessential amino acids include: alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine.

    CONDITIONAL AMINO ACIDS

    Conditional amino acids are not essential, except in times of illness and stress. Arginine, cysteine, glutamine, tyrosine, glycine, ornithine, proline, and serine are all conditional amino acids.

  • Why do I need to take amino acids?

    Amino acids are important to reduce fatigue, muscle damage, or soreness during or after exercise. They also support immunity, promote muscle building and provide a source of energy during prolonged exercise.

  • How are amino acids absorbed in the body?

    Amino acids have four calories per gram. This is actually the same number of calories as glucose, an element of sugar.
    However, for amino acids as supplements, only small amounts of amino acids are consumed. So they’re reduced in calories, and you are very unlikely to gain weight from them.

  • What are branched chain amino acids (BCAA)?

    Three of the nine essential amino acids—leucine, isoleucine and valine—are composed of 35 percent of our muscle protein. These three key components are branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and they’re especially important. BCAAs are important amino acids which are element of muscle protein. They help to preserve muscle glycogen stores and reduce the total amount of protein breakdown.

  • What is the difference between BCAA and essential amino acids?

    BCAA is a subset of the 9 essential amino acids which form a major part of the muscle protein. Three out of nine essential amino acids, namely leucine, isoleucine and valine, constitute branched chain amino acids (BCAA). 

  • Can anyone take amino acids?

    Yes. Amino acids are nutrients that make up proteins. Amino acids are widely consumed in regular foods. There are no risks associated with taking amino acids. But if you suffer from severe kidney dysfunction, and phenylketonuria, you may need to restrict your amino acid intake. 

  • What happens if I have amino acids deficiency?

    Amino acids deficiency can harm normal growth, muscle strength, skin and hair texture. 

  • Is it true that amino acids moisturise your skin and hair?

    Yes. Skin and hair have a natural moisturising factor to prevent them from drying out and half of this natural moisturising factor comes from amino acids.
