Because of their physiological functions amino acids contribute to the health of hair and bone. Furthermore the form melanin and antibodies and blood. Using amino acids the body can spill out adrenaline, dopamine and endorphins. They are helping against stressful situations and protect against Alzheimer and Parkinson.
The need for amino acid
In total there are 20 different amino acids. About half of them are essential viz. the body can not form the acids by itself. They have to be supplied (in sufficient amounts) from outside. Often it is advisable to also include non-essential amino acids with food. In stress situations, in case of illness or when the body needs to do a lot it could come to an increased amino acid requirement so the body's own supply is no longer sufficient.
The effect of the amino acid
The most important amino acids are tyrosine, threonine, glutamine, glutamic acid, arginine, glycine, serine, valine. Many of them are offered by Athletic Plus. Need for glutamine arises in the training or in case of illness. Tyrosine is a great "pic-me-up", mood motivator and performance enhancer. Therefore it is required by sportsmen who have to perform under stress. The regular intake of amino acid as a food supplement sportsmen can improve their exercise performance. The motivation increases and the mental resilience will be increased.
Form of amino acid
In the proteins amino acids rows like on a string of pearls. This chain must be broken down using the digestive juices, so the body can use the proteins. This process is called hydrolysis. Shorter fragments of proteins are called peptide. Peptide-bonded amino acids will be absorbed faster and easier as complete proteins (like steaks). Amino acid hydrolysis are available as tablets or in powder form. In our shop you can order amino acids of Athletic Plus for sports nutrition online.
