Amino acids can be widely used in medicine, food, agriculture, cosmetics, health care products and other fields because of their safety, high efficiency, nutrition, treatment and other effects. Amino acid nutritional supplements are nutritional products that must be supplemented when human body functions are urgently needed or when digestion and absorption capacity is reduced, nutritional supplements for patients with liver function, and nutritional products used in blood pressure lowering preparations and antiviral preparations. At present, the types of amino acid health care products developed mainly include amino acid nutrient solution, energy drink, beauty and weight loss food, etc.
The raw materials of amino acid nutritional supplements include common glutamic acid, methionine, lysine, branched-chain amino acids and specialty amino acid products.
Branched-chain amino acids (BACCs) are the collective term for the three common amino acids found in proteins, namely leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These three amino acids are essential amino acids, which cannot be synthesized by the body itself and can only be taken from food or supplements. Amino acids are the basic units of protein, essential substances for the human body, and important substances for muscle synthesis. These amino acids promote anabolism in two specific ways, by promoting the release of insulin and by promoting the release of growth hormone, resulting in muscle growth.
BCAAs are the most important and effective nutritional supplements for any sport, with anti-fatigue properties that help the organism build muscle or gain more energy naturally and without any side effects.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BACCs)
Specialty Amino Acids
Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that does not participate in protein composition. Taurine has a variety of physiological functions and plays an important role in cardiovascular system function, lipid metabolism, glucose metabolism, blood system, immune system function and growth and development. Taurine plays an important role in maintaining brain activity and promoting brain development. It also helps cells move and grow axons in the brain, and maintains the potential balance of cell membranes.
Citrulline is recognized as one of the most widely used natural amino acid products, with functions such as enhancing human immunity, maintaining bone and joint health, balancing blood sugar and lowering cholesterol.
L-carnitine has the ability to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells and undergo oxidation, which can accelerate the decomposition of accumulated fat in the body and has a weight loss effect.
L-Theanine is a natural amino acid product extracted from green tea, and its main uses are calming, sleep aid and concentration.
