Purpose of Amino Acids
Amino acids make proteins and biomolecules in your body. Or they can be oxidized into one of your body's sources of energy.
They also function as metabolic intermediates, which are crucial to synthesis of other key molecules in your body, such as serotonin, dopamine, nitric oxide, nucleotides and others.
Multiple Amino Acids
There are 22 standard amino acids. Nine are "essential", 4 are "semi-essential", and there are 9 others. ProBiotein provides a broad amino acid profile from our ingredients of organic whole wheat, oats and flax, plus barley malt.
Essential Amino Acids
Of the standard 22 amino acids, 9 are available primarily from food. These are called "essential" amino acids, and can't be created in the human body. These 9 amino acids are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine.
Semi-Essential Amino Acids
For children, there are 4 additional amino acids considered "semi-essential", because children's bodies cannot yet synthesize these as adults can do. These 4 amino acids are cysteine, taurine, tyrosine and arginine.
Other Amino Acids
The remaining 9 amino acids of the standard 22 are alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, glutamic acid, glycine, ornithine, proline, selenocysteine and serene.
Bioavailability of Amino Acids
When we ferment the natural grains found in ProBiotein, the fermentation of the proteins in these grains increases the bioavailability of the amino acids. Fermentation is a very effective way of making the amino acids found in proteins more usable to our bodies.
Amino Acid Performance
ProBiotein, by providing important amino acids, can bring you one step closer toward ensuring your body has what it needs to perform its normal, healthy best.
