Amino acids

Amino acids are essential for bodily functioning: they are the building blocks of all proteins. Proteins may consist of hundreds of amino acids, which may be arranged in many different patterns. Amino acids come in two forms: the D-form and the L-form. Typically, only the L-form can be found in supplements. Each amino acid has its own specific properties and they are thus often used for specific indications.

Amino acids

Supplements containing amino acids may affect many different systems in the body.  Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, peptides and polypeptides.  Human beings require amino acids on an ongoing basis for physiological processes throughout the body.  Amino acids that cannot be processed endogenously (that is, by the body itself) will have to come in through the diet.  The latter are also known as essential amino acids.


Acetyl-L-carnitine

Acetyl-L-carnitine is the acetylated form of L-carnitine, a substance which occurs naturally throughout the body.  The compound is made up of amino acids and is produced in the liver and kidneys.  Bodily Acetyl-L-carnitine is most common in muscle, including heart muscle, tissue. It cannot be obtained from natural sources, and for this reason, as a dietary supplement, it is necessarily a man-made product.


Acetyl-cysteine (n-acetyl-cysteine)

Another amino acid is n-acetyl-cysteine, a building block for the protein glutathione.  Glutathione is an important antioxidant for the human body.  The amount of glutathione in the body decreases with age.  By taking n-acetyl-cysteine  in capsules the body’s glutathione level is held constant in an effective and inexpensive way.
