Why are amino acids important for the body?
In order to understand what amino4u is all about let’s first look at amino acids in general.
There are 20 different amino acids in the body which serve as building blocks for cells, bones and tissue. Exactly eight amino acids are essential for the body and must be supplied via food intake. A protein-rich diet is the prerequisite for obtaining part of these indispensable amino acids.
The total proportion of free amino acids in the blood, the so-called amino acid level, should not fall below 75g/l in order to be physically efficient and to set in motion important conversion and repair processes for the body. This level can be determined by the doctor by a full blood count and is considerably undercut by almost all people.
It is also important to know that each of our cells has its own blueprint. This blueprint requires a certain number of building materials (i.e. amino acids) for new formation or repair. In a simplified way, the human body can be imagined as a LEGO construction kit or a puzzle. If parts are missing or do not fit, the LEGO figure cannot be brought into the desired shape or the puzzle has to be set aside unfinished.
So if the eight essential amino acids are not available in sufficient quantities, the 12 that the body can form itself are of little use to it, so that cell repairs cannot be carried out properly.
- a worse skin appearance,
- shrinking muscles,
- problems with tendons, bones and ligaments,
- a weak immune system,
- tiredness and much more.
One might think that during the course of the day we might eat protein-rich foods and thus already all of these eight essential amino acids would be present.
However, this is a misconception, since our body must have all eight essential amino acids available at the same time in order to actually receive building blocks for cell metabolism.
In order to get a pictorial comparison again, imagine a table with two legs, the other two table legs being delivered later. This table has hardly any chance to properly perform with two legs.
This is where amino4u comes into play. It contains exactly these eight essential amino acids for humans in the optimal ratio, in order to receive the best building materials for all body systems.
In addition, amino4u is already split into its components (the eight essential amino acids) and is therefore available within 23 minutes in the blood. The body, therefore, not only receives the highest quality, but also the best building materials at the highest speed and without additional effort, since no digestion has to take place.
