Amino Strength is an outstanding complement to Amino Athlete. It features the amino acid compound arginine pyroglutamate. L-Arginine is an important factor in muscle metabolism. L-Ornithine is a precursor to L-arginine.
- Metabolism and Hormones
At any moment, millions of biochemical reactions are taking place in or around our nearly 100 trillion cells. To function at high levels of health, our metabolism is constantly binding molecules together and breaking them apart. In a way, our health is a function of the ease, speed, and coordination of these myriad reactions, processes named methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation, and sulfation. Hormones are messengers that tell the body to begin its various physiological activities, such as growth or sexual development. Hormones are produced in our glands and are often triggered by the brain. They are part of the intricate mechanism that makes us humans with unique personalities.
Through phospholipids such as omega-3 or omega-6 in the membrane of the cell, the hormones transfer important messages to the nucleus of the cell where the DNA produces the proteins and enzymes needed to carry out the brain's desires. With age, as metabolism slows, can come a loss of effective function, which in turn can lead to a multitude of problems associated with aging. By proactively supporting metabolic and hormonal processes you can maintain youthful activity within your body.
- Structure and Connective Tissue
Our bodies are a stunning organization of various types of connective tissues. In the form of cartilage and bones, they uphold our bodies; in the form of joints, they allow our mobility; in the form of epidermal tissues - the skin - they form the bodys mass and protect us from and connect us to, our environment. As we age, many people experience calcium deficiencies and bone problems. Similarly, joint problems are among the most debilitating aspects of aging. Yet with the proper nutrients and lifestyle changes, the bones and joints can remain STRONG, flexible, and active well into old age. Likewise, healthy, beautiful skin is a matter of diet and nutrition: the skin should be nourished with fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins, and a nutritious diet gives the skin sufficient nutrients and antioxidants for protection.
