are the basis of all life forms, and all life forms rely on amino
acids for food. There are 22 amino acids and all are vital to
our longevity. Other than water, amino acids are the most abundant
substance in our bodies.representing 75% of the body's dry weight.
Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells, and proteins are
part of every one of those cells. The human body has over 40,000
known combinations of the amino acids that make up the building
blocks of proteins.
These building blocks are 20 times more plentiful in the body
than vitamins. They are 4 times more plentiful in the human body
than minerals, however, minerals, as we know, are an essential
part of the more complex amino acids and proteins.
Amino acids not only combine with other amino acids to form new
ones, but they combine with minerals to form more complex amino
acid complexes. Almost all the nutrients we ingest are made up
of amino acidsexcept minerals. Examples: vitamins, enzymes and
probiotics are all complex forms of amino acids.The more complex
the protein, the more processes in the body it takes to break
it down to its free form state. We want the amino acids to be
more readily available ..in their free form state. Less than
.1% of all protein in your body is in this free form state. (Just
as an aside, that's why our whey protein powder is so wonderful.
The proteins are in their most simple state.) Plasma amino acids
are generally those immediately available.
Amino acids are the basis
of all life forms, and all life forms rely on amino acids for
food. A way to picture this: just as a
chemist uses a periodic table to simplify all matter into elements
nutritionist might be able to use the basic 22 amino acids to
combine the building blocks of all life. If our body is working
right, it can make about 13 of the amino acids itself. There
are 9 essential amino acids that must be ingested.
Essential must be ingested.
Nonessential can only be made by the body when the essential
amino acids are present with their cofactors in adequate amounts.
Conditionally essential (6) means that certain circumstances
(i.e. illness, age, poor diet, enzyme deficiency, stress, allergies
and pollution) they are considered essential. But really, in
certain situations, any amino acid could be considered essential.
Each protein complex is made up of amino acids. The amino acids
must be in the correct proportions and they all must be there
in the matrix, or the protein may fall apart or malfunction.
It's only as strong as its weakest link!
It all starts with digestion. This is where the protein bonds
are broken down first into peptides, then releasing free form
amino acids into the body to be used where required. The go to
the most life preserving pathways or places first. If there aren't
enough available, the body's rebuilding processes suffer.
The ability to break down protein into free form amino acids
differs for each person. Many factors such as aging, poor diet,
lack of digestive enzymes, erratic sleep patterns, stress, lack
of exercise, food allergies, environmental pollution and illness
may result in an amino acid deficiency.
This is why supplements and quality supplements are so critical.
We can't direct amino acids where we want them to be in our bodies.
We can't regulate our digestion although we're constantly working
on improving our health. So supplementing with the most simple
and free form of amino acids, reduces the possibility of digestion
struggles, and sends the aminos on their way. Minutes after the
free form aminos are available to the stomach, they are available
to the blood stream!! You have essentially bypassed the conversion
and breakdown of the protein bonds and gone straight to the bloodstream!
Enter AYoungevity products: Classic
Tangerine Ultimate ! Each of these products contain the following
amino acids, in their free form:
used by the body as fuel, mainly by the brain, nervous
system and muscles. Important cofactor in the storage of energy
from the body's Dreb cycle. Used to produce glucose. Known to
build the immune system and be helpful in the post-injury state.
(essential) to children and conditionally essential to
adults. Increases protein synthesis, protects against tumor and
cancer formation, regulates hormone secretion, and in creases
polyamine synthesis and thymus function. Aids in the stimulation
of the body's own human growth hormones (HGH). This increases
wound healing, ensures that fat is burned more efficiently and
that muscle tissue is built up. Once HGH is released, the body
can build muscle and bone, and use fat stored while involved
in insulin production. It's an important part of any weight loss
program. Helpful for the liver. May increase the motility (the
ability of sperm to move) and normal sperm count and contribute
greatly to resolving problems of infertility. The body needs
Arginine to repair itself properly, occur naturally during a
state of sleep.
Aspartic Acid thought to increase stamina and therefore
fight fatigue. Assists in detoxification of ammonia. Promotes
uptake of other toxins from the bloodstream and trace elements
in the gut. Assists in the transport of magnesium and potassium
needed for healthy skin and hair. Promotes a faster recovery
from surgery/injury, and increases white cell activity in the
immune system increasing resistance to disease. May help with
respiratory problems such as bronchitis.
Glutamic Acid known as brain fuel and a calming agent against
anxiety. Precursor to Gaba, a component of GTF and is required
for the production of other non-essential amino acids and folic
acid. Assists in the metabolization of sugars and fats and is
abundant in the brain as a neurotransmitter sending messages
from one brain cell to the next. Increases firing of neurons
in the nervous system. Helps correct personality disorders. The
brain converts it to a compound that regulates brain activity.
A deficiency results in brain damage.
the simplest amino acid. Is responsible for proper muscle
function and the freeing of energy to be used by them. Builds
the immune system by producing antibodies and is effective as
Histidine (essential) builds the immune system. Found
effective when used in the treatment of allergic diseases, rheumatoid
arthritis and ulcers. May help unblock nasal passages, resolve
redness and swelling.
Isoleucine (essential) is part of branch chain amino
acids and important in hemoglobin formation, and thererefore,
healthy blood and the transport of oxygen in the body. Important
in the regulation of blood sugar levels.
(essential) is part of branch chain amino acids and believed
to be responsible for lowering high blood sugar levels, and is
important in the healing of bones, skin and muscle tissue.
(essential) may inhibit the growth of viruses and is most
well known for its use in soothing the effects of herpes. May
improve endurance to stress and battle fatigue. Important for
vegetarians. Aids in the absorption of calcium and deficiencies
could lead to calcium excretion (kidney stones) and possible
dwarfness. Strengthens the thymus gland and immune system. Important
in collagen formation in tissue, necessary for neutralizing viruses
and repairing damage to the eye lens.
Methionine (essential) along with other body substances
such as selenium, detoxifies heavy metals (such as lead) and
excessive levels of Histamine. A powerful antioxidant preventing
free radical damage to tissues. Produces choline, a brain food,
and may help with the digestive system, helps in the breakdown
of fats, prevents the buildup of fat in the liver and arteries,
premature hair loss and fight fatigue. Beneficial for people
with allergies. Along with Acidophilus and Bifidus, helps increase
neuro-transmitters in the brain. Helps create adrenaline which
controls sexual activity and mitigates the effects of high histamine
levels and prevents premature ejaculation. Should be taken with
Phenylalanine (essential) in the L-form required by the
thyroid for normal function, thought to control appetite, and
act as an anti-depressant by increasing moods. May enhance the
ability to learn and the retention of memory. Produces neurotransmitters
that the brain uses to manufacture norepinephrine, a natural
stimulant that creases a sense of well being. Involved in the
production of phenylethylamine, a brain stimulant. Being used
today by many as an appetite suppressant in obesity. A precursor
to norepinephrine (the brain's version of adrenaline) and dopamine
in the brain. Helpful after an allergic reaction, cold or flu
to restore sense of well being. Promotes relief from symptoms
that may interfere with normal sleep.
(non-essential) acid critical to the proper functioning
and formation of tendons, joints and heart muscle.
known to increase the immune system by building up antibodies,
aid in the proper metabolism of fats and fatty acids, and assist
in the growth of muscles.
Threonine- (essential) is thought to help maintain the proper
protein balance in the body and prevent fatty buildup in the
liver. May boost the immune system by forming antibodies and
immunoglobulins. Helps regulate the central nervous system.
(non-essential) found to elevate the mood and is conditionally
effective against depression. Helps to form red and white blood
cells and enhance the immune function. Known to suppress the
appetite; and may aid in losing excess weight. May stimulate
growth hormone release for positive muscle growth and the burning
off of excess fat. Helps break down Phenylalanine. A lack of
it trigger a deficiency of the hormone norphinephrine, resulting
in depression and mood disorders. Used to synthesize epinephrine
(essential) is part of the branch chain amino acids and key to
the proper nitrogen balance of the body. It may aid in improving
muscle metabolism and tissue repair; very helpful for after surgery
or other stress put on the body such as most forms of exercising
or heavy weight training.
Every amino acid requires cofactors to function
at its best or at all, therefore never take amino acids as single
ingredients! Because Youngevity's products: Classic Ultimate,
Tangy Tangerine Ultimate and Sports Tech formulations have superior
safety and potency, the use of these combinations are becoming
more common than plain vitamin combinations and certainly are
directly competing with over the counter or prescribed pharmaceutical
remedies for common ailments caused by nutritional deficiencies.
