Seeking Health Optimal Amino Blend, 150 ct

Seeking Health Optimal Amino Blend, 150 ct Seeking Health Optimal Amino Blend, 150 ct Seeking Health Optimal Amino Blend is a comprehensive, well-balanced, and hypoallergenic blend of 20 amino acids.These organic compounds are essential building blocks for proteins, and are needed to form structural proteins like muscle, hair and collagen, and functional proteins like enzymes, antibodies, hormones, and other molecules essential for life. Amino acids also play important roles in immunity, neurological function, detoxification, and energy production. There are thousands of different proteins in the body, each with distinct functional properties, which are all constructed from different combinations of these 20 common amino acids. Deficiency of amino acids can be caused by impaired absorption, insufficient stomach acid, digestive enzyme deficiencies, dietary protein restriction, stress, infection, medication, and aging. Seeking Health Optimal Amino Blend provides: 20 essential and non-essential amino acids: Of the 20 common types of amino acids, nine cannot be made by the body and thus must be supplied by the diet or through supplementation. These nine amino acids are referred to as ?essential amino acids.? Depletion of one essential amino acid can set the stage for impaired protein synthesis, which can result in problems ranging from indigestion to more serious conditions. In addition, if the body lacks sufficient essential amino acids, deficiencies in nonessential amino acids can also exist. Supplementing the diet with both essential and nonessential amino acids can help optimize amino acid status and maintain proper metabolic functions. Pharmaceutical-grade crystalline amino acids: is made from high-quality pharmaceutical-grade crystalline amino acids to ensure maximum purity. ?L-form? amino acids: Generally, supplemental amino acids come in two forms and are designated with an ?L? or ?D? prefix. The L-form is the naturally-occurring isomer of amino acids and is the only form that the human body can directly use to build proteins. For maximum benefit, Optimal Amino Blend contains only ?L-form? amino acids. (The amino acids taurine and glycine occur in only one form and thus do not have L- or D- designations). Ready-to-absorb, free-form amino acids: Free form amino acids are not linked in peptide or protein structures and thus do not need to be digested. Rather they are ready for rapid absorption directly into the bloodstream. By providing amino acids in their free-form, Optimal Amino Blend can provide a source of easy-to-assimilate amino acids for persons with impaired digestion due to illness, aging, or bariatric surgery who may be unable to ingest, digest, or absorb sufficient dietary protein. It may also be helpful for individuals with food allergies, protein intolerance, or those with restrictive diets. Warnings: Store in a cool, dry place (59-85 degrees) away from direct sunlight.
