Injection of Amino Acids

Our bodies produce most of their amino acids due to the protein makeup of the Amino Acids. There are ten amino acids that our bodies don’t have. We can only get these Amino Acids through our food or supplementation.

Amino acids are made up of proteins that our bodies cannot store, like fats and carbohydrates. Amino Acids are continuously recycled through the removal and addition of nitrogen. This constant recycling enables our bodies to regulate protein balance carefully. However, the recycling process is inherently inefficient, so different intakes are needed for other people.

Ten of these amino acids can only come from nutritional sources. Our cells are in a constant cycle of breakdown and regeneration. This creates a continuously ongoing and variable need for these nutritionally derived Amino Acids.

The constant and sometimes increased need for dietary increases in amino acids is from the continuous breakdown and regeneration of the body’s cells. Our bodies use Amino Acids for cellular regeneration. These Aminos are derived from our foods and aren’t always adequate for optimal cellular regeneration.

This creates a need for supplementation. We use an Amino Acid product that blends the most important ones into a single formulary.

These important Aminos are; Carnitine, Citrulline, Lysine, Arginine + Ornithine jointly, and Glutamine. They are all discussed separately in the pages ahead.

Amino Acid Carnitine

Improves fat metabolism and energy, reduces recovery times, and promotes muscle-building potential.

Amino Acid Citrulline

It was converted to Arginine in the kidneys. Longer lasting effect than just Arginine alone. Some research is looking at the benefits of helping with ED. Promotes vasodilation, blood flow, immune system.

Amino Acid Lysine

Lysine is essential in creating carnitine, which converts fatty acids into energy and lowers cholesterol levels. L-lysine also plays a role in absorbing calcium and helps the body form collagen, which aids in the growth and maintenance of bones and connective tissue.

Amino Acids Arginine + Ornithine

Your body uses ornithine to synthesize arginine; then arginine is used to produce nitric oxide. Nitric oxide regulates smooth muscle contraction, which allows it to relax the muscles in blood vessels. Promotes vasodilation and blood flow.

The amino acid ornithine is a perfectly-suited supplement to arginine. It is reduced to arginine in the body, but this occurs very slowly so that its effects last a long time. The combination of both amino acids improves the overall regeneration capability of the body and leads to a noticeable increase in vitality.

Amino Acid Glutamine

Glutamine plays a critical role in protein metabolism, cell volumizing, and anti-catabolism. Glutamine also increases your ability to secrete Human Growth Hormone, which helps metabolize body fat and support new muscle growth. Glutamine’s anti-catabolism ability prevents the breakdown of your muscles.

These Aminos are available in Intramuscular Injections (IM) or through Intravenous Infusion (IV)
