Health Notes

Amino Acids Overview

Amino Acids Overview
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Aspartic acid is an amino acid that participates in many biochemical reactions relating to energy and protein. Research suggests that it may help reduce fatigue during exercise.(more)
Schizophrenia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAspartic acid is a non-essential amino acid that participates in many biochemical reactions relating to energy and protein. Preliminary, though conflicting, animal and human research suggested a role for aspartic acid (in the form of potassium and magnesium aspartate) in reducing fatigue during exercise.1 However, most studies have found aspartic acid useless in improving either athletic performance or the body's response to exercise.2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Schizophrenia
Dose: Refer to label instructionsL-Theanine is an amino acid present almost exclusively in the tea plant. It has been found to have mood-enhancing and relaxing properties. In a double-blind trial that included patients with schizophrenia or a related condition (schizoaffective disorder) who were taking antipsychotic medications, the addition of 400 mg per day of L-theanine for 8 weeks significantly improved anxiety and various other psychiatric symptoms, compared with a placebo. L-Theanine was safe and well tolerated.1

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Twenty amino acids are needed to build the various proteins used in the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues. Eleven of these amino acids can be made by the body itself, while the other nine (called essential amino acids) must come from the diet. The essential amino acids are isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Another amino acid, histidine, is considered semi-essential because the body does not always require dietary sources of it. The nonessential amino acids are arginine, alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine. Other amino acids, such as carnitine and taurine, are used by the body in ways other than protein-building and are often used therapeutically. L-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea that is said to help relieve stress. Beta-alanine has been used to prevent fatigue during exercise.

Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete AMINO - Natural Tropical Punch:

Tested this product from the Pure Edge line.
Appearance - In reading the label , your expecting to open the can to all natural ingredients. The smell is exactly that , it smells exactly as it should.

Mixing : I've tried mixing this with plain water at first in a shaker bottle. It started to create alot of air bubbles and was not easy to drink so it's not recommended to use a shaker bottle with this. I then mixed it with plain water along with 8 oz water and a fork. That did the trick fine.

Taste: The taste is something you have to get use to because we have ingrained in our heads what " tropical punch" should taste like which is super sweet , kool aid like flavors with alot of artificial flavors. This taste much natural and doesn't have the same artificial taste. I expected this as this specifically says it doesn't contain artificial flavors and sweeteners.

Effect: I could feel a bit of the face tingling from the arginine and energy levels went up after 15 mins after consumption. I maintained focus and alertness for a good bit ( 2 hours) before I noticed it was wearing off. Once it wore off I felt normal , I didn't crash or feel tired again. It helped me alot for the afternoons after lunch and also after work. I work out late so this is a perfect supplement to take during the day if you don't want to chug energy drinks or drive coffee and want something more sustainable that last longer.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete AMINO - Natural Tropical Punch:

    I have been trying to go all-natural with my pre & post workout products for a while, but it is hard to find! I was so happy when GNC introduced this line. And what makes it even better is that it actually tastes good! I'm a happy camper.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete AMINO - Natural Tropical Punch:

    Got this product as part of product testing package. The first time I took this product the inital taste was somewhat like medicine, take note I only tested the fruit punch not the watermellon. You get used to the tast after a couple uses, but I would recommend mixing it with something besides plain water. I take this as a daily supplement, usually after lunch time. Helps to pick me up for the afternoon during work. Have only been taking it during the week days, Mon-Fri for the past 3 weeks. I work out about 5 days a week and I am taking several other protien powders so I have not really noticed a huge difference. The only noticable difference is I feel more energetic during the afternoon when I take this product and I do feel like my muscles are a bit fuller, probably from the L-Arginin. I havent really noticed any of the other benefits described in the description except maybe that my digestion has improved slightly. Over all if you are looking for something that will help you build muscle this is probably not for you but if you want something that tastes reasonable and will offer a decent boost in the afternoon I would suggest this product.

    Taking this product helped get me through those low times in the day and in my workout. I did have a weird after taste when I drank this mixture. I also did not receive a scoop in my tub. The initial taste was very good. Although it isn't needed, good taste always helps. I would love to try more flavors.

      I love this new line from GNC. I'm sick of taking products that are supposed to be good for you yet contain ingredients that I know to not be good for me or I don't know what they are because they are so processed. This is a huge win for GNC. Great product line, all of them in Pure Edge.

        Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete AMINO - Natural Tropical Punch:

        I take this mixed with my morning pre-workout drink. Taste isn't fantastic, but mixed it is perfectly fine. It does foam up quite a bit in a shaker, though, but not as bad as the PurEdge Energy. I have noticed increased energy and quicker recovery times with this product. More so than other BCAA's, SAA's, and combinations that I have tried recently. The ingredients used in the PurEdge line as well as the price point, make it a no-brainer purchase. In fact I just went and bought another container.

          I used this amino for about 2 weeks and I have to say it reduced my recovery time. I did notice a slight difference in my energy level as I drank it while working out but the taste is NOT the best. You do however need to keep i mind that this stuff does NOT contain any sugar or other types of sweeteners so I get it not tasting "good" it is NOT bad to the point of keeping it down but with cold water it was managagable so with any other pre flavored beverage I am sure it would be fine.

            I use this as a daily stress reducer while at work.I got it as a sample and thought it might not work for me since I am not hard core but it does. Mixed with water it sits on my desk and I dring it during the day. I does seem to help me feel better after working out or just from having tense muscles from working on the computer all day.
