APN Essential Aminos - 60 Servings
APN Essential Aminos are the perfect combination of Branch Chain Amino Acids and the 9 Essential Amino Acids.
Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein and, in fact, the building blocks of life itself. They are essential to optimal metabolic function and critical to growing and maintaining both muscle mass and lean body mass, therefore, the key to human performance.
L-phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that is converted into another amino acid called tyrosine.
This amino acid is needed to form important brain chemicals (neurotransmitters and hormones) including norepinephrine (aka noradrenaline), epinephrine (aka adrenaline), their precursor L-dopa, and finally thyroid hormones, which are responsible for the regulation of our metabolism.
Without sufficient L-phenylalanine it’s possible to experience cognitive dysfunction, depression, and appetite loss.
Valine is one of three branch-chained amino acids (BCAAs) and promotes the repair of tissues.
Valine helps with energy prevision, regulates blood sugar levels, and assists with normal growth and development.
It also is involved in stimulating the central nervous system.
Valine is often taken in supplement form with other BCAAs to build muscle mass in athletes.
Another branch-chained amino acid (BCAA), leucine is the fourth most concentrated amino acid found within muscle tissue.
It helps to maintain nitrogen balance and energy supply.
The third branch-chained amino acid (BCAA), isoleucine is also involved in muscle development and repair.
It is broken down by the body to provide energy within the muscle tissue and assist the body when recovering from strenuous physical exercise.
Insufficient levels of this amino acid within the body can produce symptoms that are similar to those experienced by people suffering from hypoglycemia.
This is a key essential amino acid that helps to build a healthy immune system.
It is involved in the development of antibodies and has important antiviral properties.
Studies show that this particular amino acid is especially beneficial for safeguarding against herpes virus. Lysine also assists with the formation of collagen and muscle tissue.
This essential amino acid helps to maintain the balance of protein within the body and therefore supports normal growth and development.
It is also involved in supporting the central nervous system, cardiovascular system, immune function, and liver function.
Threonine is required to produce the amino acids serine and glycine that produce elastin, collagen and muscle tissue. Combined with methione and aspatic acid, thronine also helps to process fatty acids and prevent liver failure.
This essential amino acid is required to produce the important neurotransmitter serotonin.
The level of serotonin in the body has a direct influence on emotions and mood.
Low levels of this neurotransmitter can lead to insomnia, depression, and weight gain; among other problems.
Tryptophan is also needed for the manufacture of vitamin B3 (niacin).
This nutrient assists with the regulation of blood sugar, stop free radical damage, and prevent cholesterol buildup.
Methionine, like the important Arginine, is a sulphur-containing essential amino acid.
It helps the body to effectively process and remove fat.
The body needs high levels of methionine to produce the amino acids taurine and cysteine, as well as the powerful amino acid glutathione.
Histidine is essential for infants to ensure the regulation of growth and natural development and repair mechanisms.
The body needs it to produce histamine, glutamate, ferritin and haemoglobin. It is therefore essential for various metabolic reactions, energy and blood supply as well as detoxification of heavy metals. Other functions include the regulation of the blood pH and supporting the healing of wounds.
