Amino Acids

Amino Acids are a group of nitrogen-containing, carbon-based organic compounds from which proteins (and muscle) are made. Amino Acids form the chief structure of proteins, several of which are essential for human growth, development and nutrition. Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein molecules. The body makes proteins from twenty eight amino acids, eight of which are Isoleucein, Leucine, L-Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, and Valine. These are termed "essential amino acids" because they can not be synthesized by the body and therefore must be obtained through diet or supplements.

Amino Acids products come in single and "branched chain" forms as powders, capsules and liquids such as Amino 2000 and Animal Nitro.
