The eight essential amino acids
Of these proteinogenic amino acids, eight are indispensable and thus essential for adult humans: isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. Since the body cannot produce these eight essential amino acids itself, it is vital that we obtain them from our food. This is because they are the basic prerequisite for our body to be able to form the remaining amino acids. Under certain circumstances, e.g. in the growth phase or during convalescence, we may need to take in more amino acids through our food.
The specific amino acid profile of humans – Human Amino Acid Profile
More recently, researchers have discovered that every living being has its own very specific amino acid profile, the so-called “master profile” – including humans. This amino acid profile is a prerequisite for achieving maximum protein biosynthesis. Protein biosynthesis is one of the most central processes in our human body. In simple terms, it involves the formation of new proteins in our cells. The synthesizing of these new proteins takes place according to a plan that is laid down in our genetic information of the DNA.
Only if all eight essential amino acids are present at the same time and in exactly the right ratio to each other can our organism optimally build up the body’s own protein. The more the proportion and ratio of the eight essential amino acids deviate from the optimal amino acid profile, the lower the protein nutritional value or the so-called net amino acid utilization (NAV) of a protein food source. And the higher the proportion of metabolic waste.
There is a special feature of protein metabolism compared to carbohydrate and fat metabolism, in which only water and carbon dioxide are produced as excretion products: When amino acids are broken down, the individual components produce, among other things, nitrogen waste in the form of ammonia, which is toxic to our cells. This nitrogen waste must be cultivated in the liver via the so-called urea biosynthesis and converted into urea.
“There must be two if life is to be successful:
Proteins and Nucleic Acids.”
Arthur Kornburg on the occasion of his Nobel Prize award in 1959
MyAMINO® from dr. reinwald vital – the protein revolution
With MyAMINO® we have developed a worldwide unique protein product, with which you can supply your body with a high proportion of highly pure amino acids and almost without nitrogen loss (< 1%).
The special feature of MyAMINO®: The eight essential amino acids are in a very specific relation to each other. And this relation enables the highest protein nutritional value worldwide with an almost 99% net build-up value. That is, almost all amino acids can be used for protein synthesis and thus for cell formation (anabolic) of the body. The nitrogen provided in MyAMINO® is used for protein biosynthesis as a precursor, and does not go into degradation. Substitution of dietary protein by MyAMINO® thus relieves the kidneys and liver.
MyAMINO® also does not produce digestive end products in the intestines, which contributes to a relief of the digestive system and consequently also to a relief of the cardiovascular system.
In addition, MyAMINO® has almost no calories and provides your body with the same amount of actually usable amino acids as about 350g of meat, fish or poultry. Because: Proteins generally contribute to a higher feeling of satiety than carbohydrates.
This is the great advantage of MyAMINO®: Your body is relieved and at the same time sufficiently supplied with high-quality amino acids.
