There a 3 types of Amino Acids, Conditional Amino Acids, Nonessential Amino Acids and Essential Amino Acids, However all of them are important to us. 'Essential' amino acid just means they cannot be made by the body. Amino acid supplements are especially vital for athletes because they support muscle building, and people over 50 as generally people over 50 lose muscle mass. They form proteins which are the building blocks of health and Amino acid supplements can help ensure you have the amino acids you need for cell growth, tissue repair and body functions. Amino Acids also play a vital role in supporting lung function, balance blood sugar, maintaining a healthy heart and lots more.
Fuel for muscles in an easy to use powdered form.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue, where it plays a vital role in metabolic processes. Intense training depletes Glutamine levels and although glutamine is present in high protein foods, such as meat and fish, it's used as a supplement because if it's taken just before or just after exercise, it can help maintain glutamine levels during this crucial time. This can in turn help the recovery of muscles after exercise.
Glutamine has a wide range of functions
Glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the human body. It has a wide range of functions including providing antioxidant support, supporting the immune system, tissue growth, kidney and brain function. Suitable for vegetarians & vegans.
Free-form to help ensure optimal absorption
Lamberts® L-Histidine is a pure, free-form amino acid that is ready to be absorbed by the body without needing to be broken down by digestive enzymes. This product is made in the UK in a factory working to pharmaceutical GMP standards and each capsule provides a full 500mg of L-Histidine HCl.
Necessary for the mineral selenium
This sulphur containing essential amino acid has antioxidant properties and is necessary for the mineral selenium to be absorbed and utilised. Additionally, methionine can be a detoxifying agent assisting in the removal of certain heavy metals from the body.
In its free-form for maximum absorption
Phenylalaine is an essential amino acid and is the precursor for the amino acid tyrosine. Like tyrosine, it is the precursor for the neurotransmitters called catecholamines (adrenaline, noradrenaline and dopamine).
Tyrosine is considered a non-essential amino acid because the body can make it from phenylalanine. It is important to brain nutrition because it is a precursor of the neurotransmitters - dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline. It also acts as a precursor for certain hormones, including thyroxine and for the major human pigment melanin.
L-Carnitine primarily regulates fat burning in the body
L-Carnitine primarily regulates fat burning in the body. Its most important known metabolic function is to transport long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of muscle cells where they are oxidised and burned for energy. This can make exercise more productive, particularly for runners and for those undergoing intensive training. Cardiac muscle is especially dependent upon this mechanism as an important source of metabolic energy.
A vital component involved in many essential metabolic processes
Cysteine is a sulphur amino acid and a vital component involved in many essential metabolic processes such as assisting the metabolism of omega-3 fatty acids, contributing towards the strength of hair, aiding in enzyme and insulin production, and assisting the elimination of heavy metals from the body. Suitable for vegetarians & vegans.
