Optimal Amino Blend by Seeking Health is a comprehensive, well-balanced, and hypoallergenic blend of 20 amino acids. Amino acids are organic compounds that are essential building blocks for proteins. There are thousands of different proteins in the body, each with distinct functional properties, which are all constructed from different combinations of the 20 common amino acids. These essential building blocks are needed to form structural proteins like muscle, hair and collagen, and functional proteins like enzymes, antibodies, and other molecules essential for life. Amino acids also play important roles in immune health, neurological function, detoxification, and energy production. Impaired absorption, insufficient stomach acid, digestive enzyme deficiencies, dietary protein restriction, stress, infection, certain medications, and aging are some of the factors that can lead to deficiencies of amino acids.*
Optimal Amino Blend provides essential and non-essential amino acids. Of the 20 common types of amino acids, nine cannot be made by the body and thus must be supplied by the diet or through supplementation. These nine amino acids are referred to as “essential” amino acids. Depletion of one essential amino acid can set the stage for impaired protein synthesis. In addition, without sufficient essential amino acids, the body may not be able to produce enough of the “nonessential” amino acids that are also important for maintaining health and wellness. Supplementing the diet with both essential and nonessential amino acids can help optimize amino acid status and maintain proper metabolic functions.*
This supplement is made from high-quality crystalline amino acids to ensure maximum purity. Generally, supplemental amino acids come in two forms and are designated with an “L” or “D” prefix. The L-form is the naturally-occurring isomer of amino acids and is the only form that the human body can directly use to build proteins. For maximum benefit, Optimal Amino Blend contains only “L-form” amino acids. (The amino acids taurine and glycine occur in only one form and thus do not have L- or D- designations).*
Free form amino acids, which are not linked in peptide or protein structures, do not need to be digested and are ready for efficient absorption and utilization. By providing amino acids in their free-form, Optimal Amino Blend can provide a source of easy-to-assimilate amino acids for maximum absorption and optimal health.*
