Amino Acids
Description

There a 3 types of Amino Acids, Conditional Amino Acids, Nonessential Amino Acids and Essential Amino Acids, However all of them are important to us. 'Essential' amino acid just means they cannot be made by the body. Amino acid supplements are especially vital for athletes because they support muscle building, and people over 50 as generally people over 50 lose muscle mass. They form proteins which are the building blocks of health and Amino acid supplements can help ensure you have the amino acids you need for cell growth, tissue repair and body functions. Amino Acids also play a vital role in supporting lung function, balance blood sugar, maintaining a healthy heart and lots more.

Sort By:
L-Phenylalanine 500mg

In its free-form for maximum absorption
Phenylalaine is an essential amino acid and is the precursor for the amino acid tyrosine. Like tyrosine, it is the precursor for the neurotransmitters called catecholamines (adrenaline, noradrenaline and dopamine).

Price: £12.95
L-Tyrosine 500mg

Tyrosine is considered a non-essential amino acid because the body can make it from phenylalanine. It is important to brain nutrition because it is a precursor of the neurotransmitters - dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline. It also acts as a precursor for certain hormones, including thyroxine and for the major human pigment melanin.

Price: £12.95
Taurine 500mg

Lamberts® Taurine is a pure, free-form amino acid that is ready to be absorbed by the body without needing to be broken down by digestive enzymes.

Price: £8.90
L-Carnitine 500mg Capsules

L-Carnitine primarily regulates fat burning in the body
L-Carnitine primarily regulates fat burning in the body. Its most important known metabolic function is to transport long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of muscle cells where they are oxidised and burned for energy. This can make exercise more productive, particularly for runners and for those undergoing intensive training. Cardiac muscle is especially dependent upon this mechanism as an important source of metabolic energy.

Bio-Cysteine

A vital component involved in many essential metabolic processes
Cysteine is a sulphur amino acid and a vital component involved in many essential metabolic processes such as assisting the metabolism of omega-3 fatty acids, contributing towards the strength of hair, aiding in enzyme and insulin production, and assisting the elimination of heavy metals from the body. Suitable for vegetarians & vegans.

Price: £31.40
L-Theanine 200mg

Unlike most supplements that need to be part of a regime for several weeks before any effect may be noted, with L-Theanine there is a response within the first few hours of use.

Price: £15.65
L-Arginine HCL 1000mg

Arginine is considered a non-essential amino acid although research indicates that it is ‘conditionally essential’ in that the body may not be able to manufacture a sufficient amount in times of rapid growth, trauma and other physical stresses.

Price: £13.37
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)

HELP NEUTRALIZE THE CHEMICAL BY-PRODUCTS OF SMOKING
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) has been extensively researched for its antioxidant properties, particularly in its potential to neutralize the chemical by-products of smoking. Its ease of conversion to both extracellular and intracellular glutathione, coupled with its stability and long half-life in the body, makes it an economical and powerful antioxidant. N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC)—a derivative of the amino acid L-cysteine—forms the all-natural foundation of any daily lung support routine. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) can also help support the integrity of intestinal mucosal cells.*

Acetyl-L-Carnitine
Supercharge mental performance & prevent age-related cognitive decline
Are you worried about losing your memory and cognition as you age? Perhaps worried about memory and cognition in someone who drinks too much alcohol? Supplementing with acetyl-l-carnitine has been shown to diminish memory loss and cognitive impairment associated with aging and it appears to help alcoholics, too. Acetyl-l-carnitine, often called ALC, has been shown to preserve brain health. It promotes healthy brain functioning and provides oxidative support, thereby reducing oxidative damage. It also supports healthy nerve function throughout the body, particularly associated with poor blood sugar control and/or induced by medications.

L-Theanine

ONE OF THE KEY HEALTH COMPONENTS IN GREEN TEA
Reduce feelings of stress and increase relaxation without daytime grogginess with pure Suntheanine® L-theanine. L-theanine is an amino acid naturally found in green tea, and is one of the key health components in green tea.

Research has shown increases production of alpha brain waves, and supports healthy vascular blood flow and improves immune function.*
