AminoSelect - 120 Capsules
AminoSelect™ is a comprehensive essential amino acid formulation, enriched with a high leucine content to help promote healthy lean body composition and healthy muscle function.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, typically supplied by protein-containing foods in the diet. Individuals who fail to consume, digest or absorb adequate amounts of protein may benefit from taking AminoSelect™ to provide the essential amino acids needed to build muscle fibre and other protein-containing structures in the body (for example, collagen, bones, antibodies and enzymes).
The human body is not efficient at storing excess amino acids for later use; therefore, amino acids must be consumed daily. Ideally, the typical American diet would provide sufficient quantities of essential amino acids but numerous metabolic and environmental factors-for example, high-stress levels, illness or injury, all of which are implicated in accelerated protein breakdown-may support the need for amino acid supplementation. AminoSelect™ may be recommended for individuals whose diets are insufficient in quality protein, individuals with catabolic metabolisms, athletes whose protein demands are naturally increased due to high physical activity, and anyone with malabsorption due to intestinal inflammation, low hydrochloric acid levels, pancreatic insufficiency, microbiome imbalances or other issues.
AminoSelect™ contains superior quality amino acids in their free form (as opposed to protein-bound) to promote their rapid absorption and utilization. All nine essential amino acids are included with extra-high levels of the branched-chain amino acid leucine. Leucine is required for the synthesis of muscle tissue. Research suggests that supplementation with high leucine essential amino acids may be effective at helping older adults to significantly improve muscle physiology, enhance physical performance and promote lean body composition. The tryptophan in this formula is supplied in the form of 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), a metabolite of L-tryptophan and the immediate precursor to the calming neurotransmitters melatonin and serotonin.
