Weight Management

Amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements play a significant role in weight loss. Whether we gradually put on weight or stay slim generally depends on our hormones. And herein lays the key to weight loss:

The systematic supplementation of certain amino acids allows us to stimulate the body to produce enough fat-burning hormones, in a natural manner and in harmony with the body’s needs.

One important fat-burning hormone is the growth hormone (somatotropin, STH). We produce this hormone while we sleep. It stimulates protein synthesis and boosts fat oxidation. Overweight patients generally have a lower STH concentration, which often hinders weight reduction. Unfortunately, the growth hormone is very expensive (approximately $500-$1000 for a monthly ration) and must be injected under close and competent medical supervision.

It is thus safer to simulate our bodies to secrete this hormone naturally. Certain amino acids have been shown to do this in many cases if sufficient quantities are taken on an empty stomach at night.

Amino acids capable of this are:

  • Arginine
  • Glutamine
  • Methionine

The synthesis of the growth hormone also requires vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and zinc

Amino acids are the core of all cells in the human body. Intake of amino acids during weight loss insures maintenance of muscle mass while losing fat. When consumed through dietary sources, amino acids perform two essential tasks in the human body: synthesis of proteins and various biomolecules or oxidization to urea and carbon dioxide as an energy source.

Amino acids at work for your weight management

Lysine (Essential Amino Acid)
  • is necessary for all amino acid assimilation and assists in the storage of fats
  • works with other essential amino acids to maintain growth, lean body mass, and the body’s store of nitrogen
  • stimulates the appetite in a natural way
Methionine (Essential Amino Acid)
assists the breakdown of fats, thus helping to prevent a build-up of fat in the liver and arteries, that might obstruct blood flow to the brain, heart, and kidneys
Phenylalanine (Essential Amino Acid)
used to treat obesity, reduces hunger pains
Threonine (Essential Amino Acid)
  • assists metabolism and assimilation
  • aids the digestive and intestinal tracts to function better, and acts as a trigger for metabolism
Tryptophan (Essential Amino Acid)
aids in weight control by reducing appetite
Alanine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
aids in the metabolism of glucose, a simple carbohydrate that the body uses for energy
Arginine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
aids in weight loss because it facilitates an increase in muscle mass and a reduction of body fat
Aspartic Acid (Non-essential Amino Acid)
rejuvenates cellular activity, cell formation and metabolism, which gives you a younger looking appearance
Cysteine & Cystine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
promotes the burning of fat and the building of muscle
Glutamic Acid (Non-essential Amino Acid)
important in the metabolism of sugars and fats
Glutamine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • alleviates fatigue, depression and impotence
  • decreases sugar cravings
Ornithine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • helps to prompt the release of growth hormones, which promotes the metabolism of excess body fat (this effect is enhanced if combined with Arginine and Carnitine)
  • necessary for lean muscle mass
  • induces the release of growth hormone in the body, which in turn helps with fat metabolism
Serine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
needed for the proper metabolism of fats and fatty acids
Taurine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • is the key component of bile, which is needed for the digestion of fats
  • is important for the energy metabolism / the transformation of food into energy
Tyrosine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • is important to overall metabolism
  • suppresses the appetite, and helps reduce body fat
  • used by the thyroid gland for the production of Thyroxine, a vital hormone involved in regulating growth, metabolism, skin health and mental state
