Injectable Amino Acid Therapy

Injectable Amino Acid Therapy

Injectable amino acid therapy provides highly bioavailable amino acids via intramuscular injections. The amino acids are first injected into muscle tissue. Thereafter the nutrients are slowly absorbed into the bloodstream, rejuvenating the body at the cellular level, all while avoiding any digestion through the gastrointestinal tract. As a result of bypassing the gut, the amino acids offer the highest level of bioavailability and provide the best possible results.

Protein is one of the most important nutrients, and is essential for our bodies to function properly, operate at optimal levels, build muscle and keep our weight in check. Amino acids are the constituents of protein, and provide the essential building blocks for all the tissues in the body. Amino acid supplements have been around for several decades and have been used to:

  • Increase athletic performance strength.
  • Provide better and deeper sleep.
  • Assist in weight loss.
  • Increase focus and memory.
  • Quicker recovery from workouts.
  • Provide muscle sparing during calorie restrictive diets.
  • Strengthen brittle hair and thicken hair.
  • Provide treatment for depression.
  • Treat certain allergies and symptoms of fibromyalgia.
  • Improve body immunity.

What are Amino Acids?

As previously mentioned, proteins are formed by the binding of amino acids, which carryout numerous body function. The body’s proteins are made up from 20 unique amino acids, nine of which are known as essential amino acids. The essential amino acids or EAA’s, are the only amino acids which the body cannot make and need to be sourced from the diet.

The 20 amino acids are divided into two groups; essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids. The essential amino acids include:

  • Lysine
  • Leucine
  • Phenylalanine
  • Valine
  • Isoleucine
  • Methionine
  • Threonine
  • Tryptophan
  • Histidine (only considered essential for infants)

The non-essential amino acids include:

  • Alanine
  • Asparagine
  • Arginine
  • Glutamine
  • Tyrosine
  • Cysteine
  • Glycine
  • Proline
  • Serine
  • Aspartate
  • Ornithine

Injectable Amino Acid Therapy Benefits

People with an amino acid deficiency may be suffering from excessive fatigue, poor sleep, sudden weight gain as well as a host of other issues. Injectable amino acid treatment can tackle these health concerns as well as others with better results than could be achieved by supplementing with a capsule, tablets and powders. The primary reason that injectable amino acids are better is due to the greater absorption and utilization of the nutrients. Amino acids in capsule, tablet or powder form have a huge hurdle when they pass through the gastrointestinal tract, which leaves a tiny fraction that can then be absorbed.

In many cases, amino acid supplements found in health specialty stores contain unnecessary fillers and low quality as a result of poor manufacturing practices. Receiving injectable amino acid therapy from a physician is the best way to have peace of mind that your health concerns will be treated effectively and safely.
