Amino acids have many functions in the body; they are the building blocks for all body proteins.

Product Description

It is formulated with a blend of uniquely processed whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate. Structural proteins that build muscle, connective tissues, bones and other structures, and functional proteins in the form of thousands of metabolically active enzymes. Amino acids provide the body with the nitrogen that is essential for growth and maintenance of all tissues and structures.

Proteins and amino acids also serve as a source of energy, providing about 4 calories per gram.

Individual amino acids also have specific functions in many aspects of human physiology and biochemistry. Amino acids serve as precursors for many nitrogenous substances. These include heme, purines, pyrimidines, hormones, and neuro-transmitters, including biologically active peptides.

In addition, many proteins contain amino acids that have been modified for a specific function, e.g., calcium binding or collagen cross-linking. In the fasting state, blood plasma contains all metabolically important amino acids in characteristic concentrations, and each amino acid is present in a defined ratio relative to the others. After a meal, the ratios of plasma amino acids change to reflect amino acid intake, but return later to their original levels. Normal plasma amino acid levels are extremely susceptible to physiological state and show considerable variability.
