This offering from Twinlab has several key components such as crystalline fructose, B-complex vitamins and energizing carbohydrates. One of the primary constituent of the protein component is L-Tryptophan, a widely used dietary supplement with several benefits.
L-Tryptophan increases the serotonin levels in the body and can be used as a treatment for insomnia or other neurological disorders. It is known to help overcome mood swings and nervousness. It reduces aggression and symptoms of PMS. Side effects may include nausea, headache and blood pressure fluctuations in a few cases, but Tryptophan is generally considered safe.
Nitrogen Retention Properties
Peptide-bonded amino acids, the base for Twinlab Amino fuel has better nitrogen retention properties in comparison with other amino acid forms, facilitating muscle growth. Amino acids are building blocks for proteins – they help in building and repairing tissues, increase body immunity and facilitate better functioning of enzymes and hormones. Almost all of the body’s protein requirements is obtained primarily from dietary sources. However, in rare cases of protein deficiencies, the impacts are far-reaching considering that proteins account for close to three-quarters of the dry body weight and play a crucial role in almost all the biochemical reactions in the body. Therefore, buy the Twinlab Amino fuel if you develop symptoms of protein deficiency such as excessive fatigue, low energy levels, or even if you are a vegetarian with a low protein diet.
Amini Acids Are Vital To A Comprehensive Plan
Chemically, amino acids serve multiple functions, both in the intact state and also when breaking down. In the intact state, amino acids work to build and repair cells. Protein storage is another function of intact amino acids – this happens when the rate of storage is higher than the rate of degeneration. An amino acid supplement is therefore suitable in cases, where the breaking down process is very active or higher protein storage is required -suitable for growing children, a lactating or pregnant mother, aged people and recovering patients.
Contains Essential Carb Components
Decomposition of the stored amino acid is associated with the process of generating energy – every gram of protein that breaks down generates well over 4 calories of energy. Once the intact amino acid requirements of the body are met, the excess amino acids are processed for stimulation, energy generation and deamination. In the deamination process, the amino acid is broken into two parts – one is nitrogenous while the other is non-nitrogenous. The nitrogenous part is used in synthesis of urea and ammonium salts. The non-nitrogenous component is transformed into fatty acids or carbohydrates.
In addition to meeting the crucial protein requirements of the body, the Twinlab Amino fuel also has energy carbohydrates and fructose components, enhancing the energizing properties of the Amino fuel. The importance of peptide-bonded amino acids is emphasized by the fact that close to 95% of the muscles and the heart is comprised of amino acids. Consult your trainer or physician for the right dosage suitable for you before you buy the Twinlab Amino fuel as a dietary supplement.
