Amino acids are the building blocks of the human body, making up proteins that form tissues, organs, muscles, skin and hair. Amino acids are also the precursors of enzymes and neurotransmitters that regulate almost all metabolic processes, making them essential for human health. The presence of nitrogen in amino acids distinguishes protein from fats and carbohydrates that your body uses for fuel. Without amino acids, life would not exist.
Long chains of amino acids make up proteins, which your body uses to build and repair itself. Because your body uses amino acids daily to develop, grow and maintain itself, they are constantly being broken down, and they must be replaced through diet. Amino acids are found in many foods, but animal sources like meat, dairy, eggs and fish provide complete proteins that are ready to be used to support human body functions.
Amino acid infusion therapy can help restore optimal amino acid levels to promote better health and slow the effects of aging.
In general, humans need to eat about half their body weight in grams of protein daily. To put that in perspective, if you weight 150 pounds, you need 75 grams of protein daily, about the equivalent of three chicken breasts, 15 eggs, or four cans of tuna. For many people, getting that much protein daily is not realistic. If you are vegan or vegetarian, getting ample amounts of protein can be even more challenging.
Even if you do eat enough protein from animal sources to meet your daily requirements, all of it may not be broken down or absorbed in your digestive tract. Amino acid IV therapy can provide a solution to meet your protein needs. An amino acid IV drip bypasses your digestive system, delivering concentrated amino acids directly to your bloodstream.

Giving your body the building blocks it needs is essential for optimal health and peak performance.
