Amino acids, the building blocks of protein, are necessary for growth and maintenance of all intra- and extra-cellular tissue. Stress can create biochemical burdens and a need for additional protein.
Amino-Blend™ offers a comprehensive blend of free-form amino acids, provided in the ratios found naturally in protein sources. Amino-Blend™ helps to support and maintains daily wellness with amino acid building blocks to support protein synthesis. Also supports energy production, athletic training, including muscle performance, and recovery after exercise or exertion.
Amino acids enhance healthy neurotransmitter synthesis support healthy cognitive function as well positive mood, and supports immune function.‡
