SUPPORT STRENGTH AND POWER AND ENCOURAGE MUSCLE GROWTH


AMINO ACIDS OVERVIEW

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Without enough protein, your performance will suffer, and your muscles will never grow. It has been shown that the protein requirements for athletes may well exceed that suggested by the RDA (0,8g/kg/day). This increases the protein requirement for athletes to approximately double or triple that of non-athletes. Research has shown that 2.0 to 2.6 g/kg/day of protein are required for periods of intense weight training. Bodybuilders and other athletes can especially benefit from supplementing with a high quality amino acid formula because they aid in repair, and growth of muscle tissue.

AMINO ACIDS IN-DEPTH

Amino acids are the chemical units or building blocks of proteins. Amino acids are essential nutrients that the body requires for proper growth and maintenance, protein substances make up the muscles, tendons, organs, glands, nails, and hair. In addition amino acids are responsible for the production of body\'s enzymes which catalyze most of the reactions in living cells, but amino acids also play a key role in regulating moods, aggression, attention, sleep and virtually all other cellular process. The body has twenty different amino acids that act as these building blocks. Human body doesn’t have all the enzymes required for the biosynthesis of all of the amino acids. Nonessential amino acids are those that the body can synthesize for itself. Essential amino acids, also called limiting amino acids, are those that cannot be produced in our body and therefore have to be obtained from food sources. Unlike fat and starch, the human body does not store excess amino acids for later use-the amino acids must be in the food every day.


PHYSICAL ACTIVITY CAN MARKEDLY INCREASE PROTEIN/AMINO ACID REQUIREMENTS

It has been shown that the protein requirements for athletes may well exceed that suggested by the RDA (0,8g/kg/day) because of a greater lean mass, a greater need for tissue repair, and because a small amount of protein is burned during training. This increases the protein requirement for athletes to approximately double or triple that of nonathletes. Research has shown that 2.0 to 2.6 g/kg/day of protein are required for periods of very intense weight training. Amino acids come from protein rich sources such as meat, fish, dairy products, and vegetables such include dried beans, peas, soy, nuts, and seeds. But we can also supplement our diet with high quality amino acid supplements. Bodybuilders and other athletes can especially benefit from supplementing amino acids because they aid in repair, growth, and development of muscle tissue. Various amino acid supplements are available, either as individual ones, or in a number of combinations. See the subcategories to get further details!
