Amino Acid Complex (100 caps)

What is Amino Acid Complex?

Our Amino Acid Complex is a very comprehensive formula with all 18 free-form amino acids present including vitamin B6 to ensure high bioavailability as well as the digestive enzymes bromelain, papain, and pancreatin that further extend bioavailability.

Amino Acids are the precurser to all proteins in the body, proteins are essential for developmentstrucureand nutrition.  Proteins are critical components of all life on Earth.

Many chemical processes that sustain life rely on proteins.  All 1600+ simple proteins in the human body are manufactured from just 22 amino acids. When food is digested any protein is always broken down to these 22 amino acids. Nine amino acids are not able to be manufactured by the body and are considered to be "essential" in our diets. The remainder are termed non-essential, which simply means that they can be manufactured to some extent within the body.

Serious health concerns can occur if  any one amino acid is deficient.  Causal factors include low-protein diets, excessivestress or trauma, infection, age, medications, and other imbalances within the body. It is very important that the amino acids are kept in balance..

Amino Acid Benefits

• Critical to a good acid-alkaline balance

• Energy sources that are vital to brain function

• Builds connective tissue (collagen) and muscle

• Builds cell structures and repairs tissues and muscles, tendons, skin, ligaments, organs (especially the heart and brain), glands, nails, and hair

• A key component of the enzyme and hormonal systems

• Transports oxygen throughout the body

• Makes antibodies to protect from bacteria and viruses

• Builds the nucleoproteins RNA and DNA

• Aid in the production of neurotransmitters

Essential Amino Acids:

Leucine (branched chain amino acid)

» Possibly aids in recovery and repair of muscle tissue

» Leucine can support healthy energy levels

» Helps support healthy blood sugar levels

Valine (branched chain amino acid)

» Possibly aids in recovery and repair of muscle tissue

» Valine can support healthy energy levels

» Helps support healthy blood sugar levels


» Phenylalanine may support healthy energy levels

» Phenylalanine can support healthy brain function

» Phenylalanine supports a healthy mood through making dopamine and norepinephrine

» Phenylalanine can support a healthy appetite 

Lysine HCl

» Needed for growth and tissue repair

» May support healthy immune function

» Assists in the production of enzymes and hormones and antibodies

» May prevent and relieve cold sores caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV)

Isoleucine ( branched chain amino acid)

» Can aid in recovery and repair of muscle tissue

» Isoleucine can support healthy energy levels

» Helps support healthy blood sugar levels


» Threonine can help digestion and intestinal tracts function more smoothly

» Threonine may possibly assist metabolism and assimilation

» Threonine can help to prevent fat build-up in the liver

» Threonine is an important component of collagen, elastin, and enamel protein


» Can be important to normal growth and metabolism

» May support hair, skin, and nail health

» Methionine possesses powerful antioxidant properties due to high sulfur content

» Assists in the breakdown of fats; can help to lower cholesterol levels

Histidine HCl

» Histidine can support healthy inflammatory response

» Histidine can support healthy joint function

» Histidine is necessary for the growth and repair of tissues, as well as the myelin sheaths that protect the nerve cells

» Histidine is required for the manufacture of both red cells and white cells 

Non-Essential Amino Acids:


» Cystine functions as an antioxidant

» Cystine can support healthy blood sugar balance

» Cystine is required for proper utilization of Vitamin B6

» Cystine can support healing of burns and wounds

Aspartic Acid 

» Aspartic Acid can support healthy energy levels

» Aspartic Acid supports healthy immune function by producing immunuglobins and antibodies

» Aspartic Acid can help the body rid itself of ammonia and other toxins

» Aspartic Acid is Essential to the synthesis of several other amino acids


» May be important to cardiovascular health

» Can help repair damaged tissues

» Proline is important for optimal skin health; may prevent collagen loss

» Major component of collagen, therefore it is important to tendons, bones, cartilage, and connective tissues


» May support healthy immune function

» May support cellular growth and repair

» May speed recovery times from injury, trauma, and burns

» May support healthy digestion

» Considered essential for proper brain function


» May help support a healthy appetite through the production of norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter that controls appetite

» Tyrosine plays an important role in the function of the adrenal, pituitary, and thyroid glands

» May support healthy brain function and healthy mood


» Helps maintain cell membranes

» Taurine helps glucose uptake which helps healthy blood sugar balance

» Helps regulate the contraction and pumping of the heart


» Assists in the production of immunoglobins and antibodies

» Energy storage source of glucose by the liver and muscles» Serine can support healthy blood sugar levels

» Required for the metabolism of fat and tissue growth


» Assists in the metabolism of glucose

» Important in converting energy to stored energy

» Alanine is an important source of energy for muscle tissue, the brain, and central nervous system

» Helps produce antibodies, thereby supporting healthy immune function


» May support healthy immune function by stimulating the thymus gland

» Aids in liver detoxification by neutralizing ammonia

» Arginine can support cardiovascular health

» Promotes the production of hormones that stimulate growth and development


» Helps trigger the release of oxygen to the cell-making process

» May support healthy prostate function

» Glycine is required by the body to make DNA & RNA

» May enhance the activity of neurotransmitters
