Amino Acids – The building blocks of protein
Many people know that protein is essential for optimum health, but most assume they are consuming enough from food. So why the need for an amino acid supplement? The simple answer is that – yes, you do get good quality from foods such as eggs, meat, fish and nuts but much of the protein in food is not converted into body protein – it just makes waste that the body has to get rid of plus extra calories.
Almost everyone is protein deficient without realizing it – it plays out as a nagging injury that won’t heal in the athlete, or brittle bones in the menopausal women, or constant colds in the child. Protein deficiency is very often something you are aware of, but you just can’t identify and neither does your doctor. Not getting enough protein may mean low hormones, or a low immune system and risk of disease or cancer. So what’s the solution? PerfectAmino is an amino acid supplement that is 99% utilized by the body to make protein. No other form of protein comes close!
PerfectAmino™ Nothing else is utilized as well to make protein.
What’s the Difference Between Protein Sources?
The chart illustrates the Amino Acid Utilization (AAU™) that PerfectAmino offers, dramatically greater than dietary protein sources and equivalent to the utilization of MAP*.
- At the low end of the spectrum are branched chain amino acids – only 1% of their content is utilized by the body with 99% resulting in waste that your body must then process and eliminate.
- Whey and soy proteins – only 18% or less of their content is utilized by the body with 83% leaving as waste.
- Food like meat, fish and poultry fare a bit better with 32% being absorbed and 68% being wasted.
- Eggs are the winners in the food stakes with 48% being utilized and 52% converted to waste.
Now compare those numbers to PerfectAmino – a massive 99% is put to work by the body, with only 1% leaving as waste. Not only that, but PerfectAmino is absorbed by the body within 23 minutes! And there is only 0.4 of a calorie per tablet.
From Dr. Minkoff: In light of the fact that I’ve been recommending MAP* for many years now, I’ve recently been asked why I have developed PerfectAmino as an effective alternative to MAP*. The primary reason is that I wanted to make this important supplement more affordable, especially for those individuals who require higher than the minimum recommended dose. I’m thrilled to be able to now offer PerfectAmino – same amino acid content and body utilization as MAP*, with verified purity, quality and affordable value!
In my medical practice I routinely encounter patients who are severely deficient in one or more essential amino acids, and this deficiency may be preventing them from healing. Also, as a participant in triathlons and other sports racing events, I encounter athletes of various levels who maintain relatively intense training regimens. These individuals often require higher doses (as compared to the minimum recommended five tablets) of an amino acid supplement like MAP* or PerfectAmino to provide their bodies adequate building blocks for protein synthesis – critical for healing from disease, muscle recovery and stamina, etc. PerfectAmino represents an affordable and equally effective option to MAP*.
