Pure Amino Acids
Alpha AAX contains a complete set of amino acids
Nine essential amino acids are complemented by 10 of the non-essential amino acids. l-form amino acids are provided in Alpha AAX in powder form to be added to water, juices or food. The formula is useful for special nutritional needs. For example:
Amino acids are the real nutrients derived from proteins by digestion of food. Amino acids do not trigger immune responses. Free amino acids are more expensive than protein powders, and hydrolyzed proteins but free the immune system from protein challenge. Some of these amino acids are not destined to be included in body proteins but will be used as neurotransmitters.
Amino acids are individually added to an AAX are pure, l-form amino acids. The amino acids are produced by variety of techniques. The formulas are hypoallergenic and have been tolerated by people with food allergies.
AAX can be used whenever increased intake of amino acids is desirable. The dose range is 10 to 50 Grams per day in divided doses. The best time to take AAX is between meals, before and after workouts and body building exercises. AAX can be used to replace dietary protein when eating is reduced or digestion is impaired. AAX can be added to Alpha ENF and or Alpha PMX to boost amino acid intake. The caloric intake is minimal. There are no carbohydrates or fats in the formula.
Even with no food protein intake, a daily intake of 25 to 30 grams of free form amino acids will be adequate for most people, most of the time. RDA protein values are crude approximations based on food protein values.
AAX is a precisely engineered amino acid set and the amino acids are 100%
available, so that the total daily requirement for amino acids is lower the RDA
values for protein intake. As a rule of thumb, we recommend calculating the RDA
protein requirement in Grams and supplying about 30% of that value as an Alpha
blend of amino acids (Available separately in Alpha AAX or combined with other
nutrients in Alpha ENF, Alpha PMX, and Alpha DMX.)
