Amino Acid Supplements

Amino acid supplements are useful for sports and exercise performance and also for supporting recovery. Some amino acids can reduce markers of muscle tissue damage, while others increase the post-workout muscle pump experience. The right blend of amino acids can make a great difference in helping you achieve your goals. 

 

Amino acids are abundant in nature. They are found in the structure of proteins in a range of plant-based foods like legumes and nuts, and animal-based foods such as eggs, dairy, seafood and meat. There are nine essential amino acids, which are tryptophan, methionine, phenylalanine, lysine, threonine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine and valine. The latter three are also referred to as branched chain amino acids. So you might be thinking, why take amino acid supplements if my diet is loaded with them? Amino acid supplements have the advantage of being in free-form. That is, they are not contained within a complex protein structure. This by-passes the need to digest and liberate them from the protein molecule, which can be particularly useful when taken before or during exercise, as they are light on the stomach, or when digestion is impaired. Furthermore, you would be hard pressed to find a specialised amino acid like citrulline or agmatine, without other competing amino acids, in nature. When taking an amino acid individually, absorption is enhanced due to less competition from other amino acids. This means that higher amounts of one single amino acid can get into the blood, which is helpful when using amino acid supplements therapeutically. You might be surprised at how much amino acids can actually do. 

 

Sportys Health contains a wide range of amino acids to support your performance and recovery needs, or health goals.
