Amino Gold (1000mg) Description from Ultimate Nutrition
All life depends on proteins. Proteins carry out all biological functions in living organisms including humans. Proteins are made of amino acids, which are their basic building blocks. Essentially, amino acids are strung like beads in long chains in proteins. In the body, proteins are made from individual amino acids. Therefore, nutritional supplementation with amino acids ensures that all cells, tissues and organs in the body have a ready supply of amino acids.
Ultimate Nutrition's Amino Gold contains all of the most important amino acids and branched chain amino acids for optimal nutritional support. These amino acids, of course, provide the body with the support to produce proteins. Amino acids, however, carry out other important functions. Nutritional supplementation keeps the amino acid supply in the bloodstream within healthy range. Under some circumstances, such as stress whether it is due to high-intensity exercise or other reasons, amino acids in the blood can be depleted so that important substances in the body cannot be produced in the right amounts at the right time in the right place. For example, if serotonin cannot be synthesized in the brain, ordinary stress may be aggravated to depression. Some amino acids, such as glycine, glutamine and, among others arginine, combine with and neutralize toxins. This is of paramount importance for liver health, since detoxification takes place in the liver. People suffering from abnormal liver function, chronic arthritis, and excessive chemical exposure usually have poor amino acid profile. Branched chain amino acids (BCAA), valine, isoleucine and leucine, greatly aid detoxification and liver function. Hence, supplementation with amino acids is critical for restoration of appropriate amounts of amino acids, which help foster better health.
