Amino-9 Essentials™ Powder - 330 g
- Complete "Free-Form" Blend of all 9 Essential Amino Acids
- A Dietary Supplement
Amino acids are the subunits that make up proteins. They are necessary for
the function of all cells, for tissue repair, and for the production of enzymes
and neurotransmitters. The body uses 20 amino acids to construct proteins, but
nine "essential amino acids" cannot be made by the human body and must be
supplied by the diet in order to achieve proper protein synthesis and maintain
overall health. People with limited diets or poor digestion may not get enough
essential amino acids from their diet. In contrast to proteins or peptide-bound
amino acids, NOW® Amino-9 Essentials™ contains all 9 essential amino acids in
their superior free-form state and in the proportions recommended by the
National Academy of Sciences to optimize protein synthesis and tissue repair for
adults age 19 and over.*
