Are Aminos The Answer?

Are Aminos The Answer?

Do you suffer from depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, confidence, lack of motivation, or even lack of energy? Did you know that by balancing your brain you can naturally defeat these issues with your body and mind?


It is so important to balance your brain with nutrition and amino acids. The combination of the two can help people to overcome these struggles and live healthier lives. The neurotransmitters in your brain produce the chemicals that make you happy. Depression, lack of energy, cravings, addiction, weight gain, and other issues are caused when the neurotransmitters cease firing. There are many reasons why your neurotransmitters can become depleted including being born with low neurotransmitters, lifestyle, and level of life stress.


There are four neurotransmitters that each have their own jobs

•      Serotonin promotes a positive outlook, self-confidence, and sense of humor.

•      Catecholamines (Dopamine) promote alertness, energy, mental focus, drive, and enthusiasm.

•      GABA promotes calmness, relaxation, and stress tolerance.

•      Endorphins promote pain relief, pleasure, reward, and loving feelings.


Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, your body produces some called non-essential. Some of them are essential and the only way you get them is from food (protein) or supplements. Their job is to go into the brain and help feed your brain what it needs and help with the firing of those neurotransmitters. The only way to get essential amino acids is from food and supplements. That’s why what you eat really does matter. There is a connection between the brain and body when it comes to mental health. We now know there are four types of amino acids each with its own purpose. Taking them specifically and correctly makes the difference in how effective they are. There are 9 essential types of amino:


  1. Phenylalanine: is a precursor for the neurotransmitters tyrosine, dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine.

  2. Valine: helps stimulate muscle growth and regeneration and is involved in energy production.

  3. Threonine: a principal part of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin. It also plays a role in fat metabolism and immune function.

  4. Tryptophan: It’s needed to maintain proper nitrogen balance and is a precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates your appetite, sleep, and mood. (It’s not just about the turkey on Thanksgiving)

  5. Methionine: plays an important role in metabolism and detoxification.

  6. Leucine: It helps regulate blood sugar levels, stimulates wound healing, and produces growth hormones.

  7. Isoleucine: important for immune function, hemoglobin production, and energy regulation.

  8. Lysine: plays a major role in protein synthesis, hormone and enzyme production, and the absorption of calcium.

  9. Histidine: used to produce histamine, a neurotransmitter that is vital to immune response, digestion, sexual function, and sleep-wake cycles.


If you think amino acid supplements may be the answer for you then you should reach out to someone who can teach you not only the importance of each one but how to use them in a way that works for you. You should take an Amino Acid Assessment and meet with a specialist that can curate the right regimen for you. When you feed your brain correctly you change your life forever.
