According to the CDC, nearly 36.5 percent of American adults are obese and about 32.5 percent are overweight. Together, that is more than two-thirds of adults in the United States struggling with being overweight and obese. This is a real problem. Fortunately, there are ways to defeat this epidemic. For some eating healthy, exercising, and getting the right amount of sleep will lead to the desired weight loss. But, for others, it is necessary to use supplementation to help get things moving in the right direction.
Amino acids are natural compounds that combine to form proteins in the body. They are known as the building blocks of proteins. When proteins are digested and broken down, they leave behind amino acids. Amino acids are crucial in helping the body break down food, repairing body tissue, growing, and performing many other bodily functions. Amino acids are categorized into three groups: essential, nonessential, and conditional.
Essential Amino Acids
- – Cannot be made within the body
- – Must come from food
- – There are 9 essential amino acids: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine
Nonessential Amino Acids
- – Produced within the body
- – Nonessential amino acids include: alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine
Conditional Amino Acids
- – These are usually not essential unless the body contains illness or stress
- – Conditional amino acids include: arginine, cysteine, glutamine, glycine, ornithine, proline, serine, and tyrosine
How Can Amino Acids Help Aid in Weight Loss?
Some amino acids contain essential compounds that may help boost metabolism and help aid in physical performance. Some amino acids also help to detoxify the body and restore balance. In combination, this can help to achieve exceptional weight loss results and increase energy levels. Experts have found that amino acid injections are more beneficial than other delivery methods due to the instant results you will receive from them going directly into the bloodstream. Combined with diet and exercise, amino acid injections will help you achieve greater results.
