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. For example, regarding protein, only 18% or less of whey and soy protein is utilized by the body with 83% leaving as waste. Protein from such sources as meat, fish and poultry are absorbed at 32%, with 68% wasted. Eggs are utilized at 48%, with 52% converted to waste. However, The Essential Aminos® is 99% utilized by the body, leaving only 1% as waste. This has been confirmed by a double-blind, triple crossover study, that The Essential Aminos® formula is the ideal amino acid formula for human nutrition. This formula is the only one that can give the body an Amino Acid Utilization (AAU) of 99%, meaning that 99% gets utilized by the body to build or repair body proteins and that only 1% generated energy and nitrogen catabolites. In addition, The Essential Aminos® does not require catalytic enzymes and is available for use by your body after 23 minutes upon consuming.
