Amino acids are essentially the building blocks of proteins that are critical to life, having many functions in a person’s metabolism. The human body uses twenty amino acids, ten of which are naturally produced by the body. The remaining ten acids need to be ingested because they are not naturally made by the body. They are essential and indispensable and can be found in products such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and milk.
Like the letters of the alphabet make words, amino acids make all the proteins used in the human body. The body produces thousands of different proteins and it cannot use the protein as it is naturally found in food. The body has to break down the consumed protein by using digestive enzymes. These enzymes then cleave off peptides and rebuild the protein into human compatible proteins such as:
- Body tissues like hair, nails, skin, bones, blood, muscles, and organs
- Hormones that regulate metabolism
- Enzymes that enhance the chemical reactions in the body
- Antibodies that enhance the immune system
Many amino acids are used to synthesize other molecules, for example:
- Tryptophan is a precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin.
- taurine is a major amino acid in muscle and brain tissues
- Some non-standard amino acids are used as defenses against herbivores in plants
Basically, Amino Acids are more important to a persons well-being than what they realize. Provide 1 Shot Liquid Protein is collagen based protein and has been broken down to the basic amino acid and peptide units by a proprietary blend of mild enzymes. It contains all the essential amino acids necessary making it easily digested by your body in the shortest amount of time. Your body will absorb over 97% of the amino acids– within 30 minutes — necessary for optimal body performance and repair.
Everyday Workout: 1 one-ounce shot 30 minutes before workout/training and 1 one-ounce shot within 30 minutes after the workout/training.
Heavy Strength Training: 2 one-ounce shot 30 minutes before workout/training and 1 one-ounce shot within 30 minutes after the workout/training. The 2 one-ounce shots before workout/training help with stamina during an extended, high-intensity workout.
Extended Workout:Take an additional one-ounce shot during extended periods of exertion such as long day of training, triathlons, etc.
