Amino Acids are the building blocks of muscle protein and we offer the best value range of high-quality amino acid supplements.

Amino acids make up a large proportion of cells, muscles and tissues, and have an influence on the function of organs, glands, tendons and arteries.

They also build the solid parts of our bodies, such as the eyes. There are two types of amino acids: essential (Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Valine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan) and non-essential (Alanine, Arginine, Asparagine, Aspartic acid, Cysteine, Glutamic acid, Glutamine, Glycine, Proline, Serine, Tyrosine). Essential acids enter the body via food and non-essentials can be created by the body.

Being exposed to toxins and pollutants in the environment actually prevents amino acids from developing. This is where amino acid supplements are useful.

Amino acid supplements are recommended to help with metabolism, and to improve health and well-being. They work well with protein shakes in the recovery stage after exercise. You can buy amino acid supplements for the following effects: anti-aging, arthritis, osteoporosis, cholesterol, diabetes, fat-burning, skin, hair loss, menopause, sleep, mood and performance and virility. Protein shakes will contain many of the amino acids the body requires for physical training.

However, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) make up 25% of all of the amino acids in skeletal muscle tissue, and they are not metabolised in the stomach, like other amino acids, but directly in the muscle tissue.

Amino acid supplements, come in various forms: tablets, capsules, liquids, and powders. The liquid forms can be used in cooking, for example, to replace soy sauce or to splash over a salad. All three forms ensure that the body is not depleted of its essential amino acids.
