Amino Acids: The Building Blocks of a Healthy Body

Amino Acids are the components that makeup protein and choosing the right combination for your health and wellness goals is essential. See, your body is made up of at least 20% protein and that protein plays a crucial role in almost all biological processes. It carries out important bodily functions including but not limited to transporting and storing nutrients during exercise and while at rest, removing byproducts of energy expenditure (metabolism) as well as repairing and rebuilding muscle tissue.

When shopping for Amino Acids, BCAA’s, and health supplements in addition to your protein intake; the options can become complex.

Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are made up of three of the most important amino acids for building, strengthening and preserving your lean muscle. The amino acids in this process, Leucine, Iso-Leucine and Valine are considered ‘essential’ because your body can’t produce these protein combinations from other amino acids. They must to be ingested through what you consume to maintain the right levels for health & growth.

Leucine plays the pivotal role of signalling growth in the muscle and acts as an energy source for tired, depleted muscles. It also plays the role of slowing down muscle degradation while its counterpart, Iso-Leucine boosts energy in the muscle tissue. Finally Valine is required for boosting metabolism, tissue repair and maintaining nitrogen balance throughout the body. In conjunction, these essential amino acids provide fuel, enhance stamina and support recovery all throughout your workouts.

The more Branch Chain Amino Acids packed into your muscles before, during and after intense exertion; the more they can be used for energy instead of the body breaking down muscle tissue to do the job.

Our new Ultimate BCAAs are Leucine loaded with a massive 8:1:1 ratio meaning you get exactly what your body needs before, during and after your workouts. Our formulation also includes Ajinomoto L-Glutamine, the best known sources of L-Glutamine in the world. Created in Japan, Ajinomoto L-Glutamine is a premium pharmaceutical grade amino acid, renowned for its quality and unrivalled purity. Ajinomoto is to L-Glutamine what Creapure is to Creatine so you know you’re getting a premium quality product, designed to help you recover quicker and support your active lifestyle.

One of the most extensively researched Amino Acids in the world today, Creatine is scientifically proven to enhance your workouts and exercise activities.. Creatine enhances protein synthesis in the muscle and is fantastic for high intensity sports and exercises that require bursts of energy, explosive power and speed. Scientific reports from users of Creatine supplementation indicate that effects are often immediate and they feel more energised, muscles feel fuller and recovery times are shorter.

UPS Ultimate Creatine is made from Creapure, the world’s purest form of Creatine, formulated to the very highest standards in Germany and distributed all over the world. It’s also a micronized powder, meaning the particles are smaller. This means you can be sure it mixes well and is easy to drink  – perfect for your pre and post workout nutrition.

The Amino Acid, L-Carnitine, does three amazing things in the body which help Improve your performance. Firstly, it shuttles fatty acids into the mitochondria of the body’s cells, where it can be burned as a primary source of energy. This makes L-Carnitine THE Amino Acid to assist in fat loss. It also reduces metabolic waste products during intense exercise and reduces the build-up of lactic acid in the muscles, the primary source of fatigue (and pain!) while you work out.

Our Ultimate L-Carnitine health supplement is a 100% pure, pharmaceutical grade Acetyl L-Carnitine, widely used by athletes to help burn fat and improve performance. It is stimulant free and contains zero fillers, flavours, colours or impurities. Unlike other forms of L-Carnitine, Acetyl L-Carnitine can help to energise brain function and support the nervous system, making it an excellent all round supplement choice.

L-Glutamine is the most abundant Amino Acid in your bloodstream and it makes up a minimum of 30-35 percent of the amino acid nitrogen in your blood. It is commonly known as  conditionally essential amino acid. Even though L-Glutamine can be synthesised by the body, it’s used in such large amounts that supplementation is considered vital for optimum health. L-Glutamine is necessary for muscle growth, tissue repair, growth hormone production, and preventing muscle breakdown. L-Glutamine also plays a pivotal role in fuelling the body’s immune system and supporting a healthy digestive tract and can help heal gastrointestinal ulcers and leaky gut syndrome.
Our UPS Ultimate L-Glutamine uses the world’s premium standard quality, Ajinomoto Glutamine. UPS Ultimate L-Glutamine is comprised of only pure, pharmaceutical grade, fermented L-Glutamine, completely free of fillers, binders, flavours or sweeteners.
