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 - Strawberry Watermelon:

The nutrition panel is impressive and I would love this product were it in capsule form. However, I could not get over the taste. I know BCAA and like powders have a strong taste but I feel like more could be done to mask it in this product. (Granted this is supposed to be all natural so I understand the restrictions.) Bottom line: I can't stomach the taste on a daily basis and will not be repurchasing.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete AMINO - Strawberry Watermelon:

    I tried this product after a good work out. The flavor was that of chewing a raw aspirin. Very difficult to drink. I also experienced uncomfortable bloating.
    It is too bad, I don't think you could devise a better ingredient-set for post-workout recovery.
    Please work on the taste, maybe then I would try again.

      Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC PUREDGE™ Complete AMINO - Strawberry Watermelon:

      I was lucky enough to be selected to try some new supplements from the new GNC line called PUREDGE. The line is all natural. No Gluten No gmo-added ingredients No preservatatives No wheat,yeast,soy, fish or egg No sugar alchohols No banned substances No artificial flavors,colors or sweetners These supplements are clean! And so when it came to taste for me I gave them a 4/10 right away. But the taste is natural, and when It comes to natural flavors in supplements I'm use to unnatural and the biggest reason I gave it a 4/10 right away. After a few drinks you get use to the taste. I now give it a 7/10. Complete Amino- 7.5g amino blend • 2.5g betaine •1g Carnitine and 1g Glutamine to protect and repair muscle • also supports hydration I didn't notice much yet on this one except I felt more refreshed in the morning, which is good because it is suppose to repair and protect your muscles. Daily Energy- natural energy boosting ingredients including green tea, black tea, guarana, and rhodia •whole food blend for daily antioxidant support •healthy carbohydrates for a quick energizing Pre-workout boost. This supplment gave me very clean energy when I needed it with no crash. I use it up to two times daily. Complete Protien- 20g of protien sweetened by Stevia and monk fruit per serving •1 serving of fruits and veggies plus CLA and chia •over 5g of amino acids • 5g of fiber for healthy healthy digestion I used this product as a snack. I like it because of the fiber protein and the added CLA and chia seeds. It's. A nice quick fix to get me to the next meal. With a lot of added benefits. I would recommend these products for people who are looking to get a clean natural supplment. I also recommend this line to those looking I lose weight. Hope this review helped. Thanks GNC for letting me be part of this. #puregnc #puredge #review #completeprotein #completeamino #dailyenergy #protein #amino #energy #clean
