Amino acids are organic compounds that contain amine (-NH2) and carboxyl (-COOH) functional groups, along with a side chain (R group) specific to each amino acid. ... In the form of proteins, amino acid residues form the second-largest component (water is the largest) of human muscles and other tissues.
The above shows
- Amine (-NH2) Group
- Side Chain -R
- Carbolic Acid -(COOH)
The R Group varies from one amino acid to the other - thus contributing to the full spectrum of the different natural amino acids.
9 of these are essential, which can be obtained from food. The rest are non essential and supplementation is the route. The entire spectrum when made available helps in the body obtaining its overall benefits from amino acids
Amino acid deficiencies can lead to :
- A weak immune system
- Loss of antibody production
- Stomach acid/ alkali imbalance
- Dizziness/ nausea
- Water retention
- Mood swings and depression
- Muscular weakness
- Poor control of blood pressure and sugar
A few factos on Amino Acids
When adequate amounts are not supplied, disease will result. Whichever amino acid we are lacking in will set the bar for how our bodies use the others.
Our body requires synergy of all amino acids working together. Failure to obtain even 1 of the 8 essential amino acids results in degradation of the body's proteins.
The chain is only as strong as its weakest link...the body is only as strong as its weakest amino acid.
Symptoms of amino acids defficiency
- Mood swings & depression
- Anxiety & Nervousness
- Chronic Fatigue
- Chronic Pain
- Muscular Weakness
- Loss of lean body tissue
- Inability to lose body fat
- Digestive disorders
- Impaired healing of wounds
- Susceptibility to infection
- Dry, brittle hair, skin & nails
- Blood sugar & Blood pressure
Biotex formulated this complex with special attention to the ratios in which these amino acids will be useful for the body i. E in the same ratio as prevalent in the "egg"
The Amino Complex has ben formulated with 18 specific amino acids of which three are "Branch Chain Amino Acids", or BCAA's.
