Other Aminos: More Information

Your body can't produce a single muscle fiber or cell without protein, and before those proteins can even be put to use, they need to be assembled from nutrients called amino acids. There are 22 of these key nutrients found in the human body, and nine of them come strictly from food. Amino acid supplements help to increase levels of the nine essential amino acids and other beneficial amino acids to help keep diets in balance.


Many athletes, fitness enthusiasts and bodybuilders use specific amino acid supplements to increase performance, lose weight faster or promote muscle growth. Using amino acid supplements may also decrease the risk of muscle breakdown or catabolism when you're following a restricted calorie diet. For vegetarians, amino acid supplements can help make it easier to obtain amino acids that are aren't found in most plant-based proteins.
