Essential amino acids

Essential amino acids are those that the body cannot synthesize by itself and which must therefore be consumed directly through diet. There are 9 essential amino acids, each with different characteristics and different functions: Phenylalanine, Histidine, Lysine, Tryptophan, Methionine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Threonine and Valine. Sports nutrition products included in this category are formulated with some of these amino acids in order to cover certain needs. More info

Phenylalanine: Elevates mood, reduces pain and contributes to enhancing memory and learning. Used to treat depression, arthritis, menstrual cramp, migraines and obesity.

Histidine: Essential for the growth and repair of tissues, production of red and white blood cells, protection against radiation damage, reduction in blood pressure and to increase sexual arousal.

Lysine: Guarantees suitable absorption of calcium and maintains a suitable balance of nitrogen. It also intervenes in the formation of collagen which makes up the cartilage and connecting tissues.

Tryptophan: Helps to alleviate insomnia inducing normal sleep, reduces anxiety and depression, stabilizes moods, contributes to the treatment of migraine and helps the immunological system to function correctly.

Methionine: Avoids disorders of the hair, skin and nails, helps to decompose fat and detox harmful agents such as lead and heavy metals and helps to reduce weakness in muscles.

Isoleucine: Contributes to the formation of haemoglobin, stabilizes sugar in the bloodstream and levels of energy. Also helps repair muscle tissue, skin and bones.

Leucine: Promotes the healing of muscle tissue, skin and bones. It also reduces levels of sugar in the bloodstream and helps to increase the production of the growth hormone.

Valine: Necessary for the muscle metabolism and coordination, tissue repair, and serves to keep the level of nitrogen in the body balanced.

Threonine: Helps to maintain the right amount of proteins in the body. It is important for the formation of collagen, elastin and tooth enamel, and prevents the accumulation of fat in the liver.
