Amino Acids are the tiny chain molecules that make up protein, in essence they are the absolute basic building blocks of protein. Some can be made by the body itself and others must be consumed and can only be extracted from the diet. As many as 200+ different amino acids have been identified, however the number critical to the human body is 20. Interestingly, 9 of those 20 are essential amino acids, meaning the body cannot produce them itself.
The Avesta collagen drink contains 18 out of those 20 most important Amino Acids... including an amazing 8 out of the 9 essential amino acids that the body cannot produce by itself.
Let's take a brief look at some of those individual amino acids and their important roles within the human body:
Arginine - is essential in the creation of bone and natural collagen production. Studies have shown that a deficiency in this amino acid can cause osteoporosis, a disease of the bones mainly suffered by older women.
Methionine - is essential for cartilage production and has natural pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have shown it has an extremely positive effect on Arthritis patients without inducing any negative side-effects whatsoever. However, it can only be at its most effective in combination with the B Vitamins; these are also included in a daily serving of the Avesta collagen drink.
Threonine - is essential in the cardiovascular system for strengthening blood vessels. It also has major roles in the central nervous system and the liver; helping to reduce fat in the liver by supporting the digestion of fats and fatty acids. Threonine is also vital in producing strong bones and tooth enamel, along with the production of collagen, elastin, and muscle tissue. Great for speeding up the recovery process from wounds and injuries.
Lysine - is essential in the immune system. Studies have shown a link between Lysine deficiency and immune system deficiency, meaning you are far more likely to become sick, more regularly. Lysine also increases serotonin levels, which has many positive effects, including reducing anxiety in people.
Who would have thought that a simple collagen supplement drink from Avesta could have so many far reaching positive effects and benefits.
