Amino acid supplementation for general wellness is growing in popularity, but you may remain skeptical as to whether it actually has benefits. Today, we discuss the 10 benefits of amino acid IV therapy and how they can help you.
1. Enhancing metabolism
Amino acids play key roles in creating and regulating our body’s metabolism. Amino acids can enhance the way the body processes fats, increasing your energy levels and helping to keep fatigue at bay.
2. Building lean muscle/reduce muscle loss
Amino acids are literally protein building blocks, making them a key part of the muscle-building process. They are part of stimulating muscle growth, activating muscle repair, and reducing lactic acid buildup in your muscles during exercise. If you need your muscles to work at their maximum on a regular basis, amino acids can help you build lean muscle and keep it healthy.
3. Better digestive health
Amino acids play significant roles in the digestive system, whether in producing the brain chemicals that manage appetite or assisting in maintaining liver health and reducing lactic acid buildup. Treatments including glutamic acid can help people who have issues with low stomach acid.
4. Improved immune function
Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid that acts as fuel for our immune system’s white blood cells. When we are sick or stressed, we can run low on glutamine, making our immune system’s fight more difficult. Replenishing a sick immune system with glutamine ensures your body has the fuel it needs to defend itself.
Aspartic acid, another non-essential amino acid, aids in the production of antibodies that help fight infection. Arginine is another amino acid that helps the immune system by increasing T-cell production.
5. Improved brain function
Amino acids are necessary to create vital brain chemicals like dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline. Several amino acids are also intimately involved in chemical signaling throughout the central nervous system, facilitating signaling between neurons.
Multiple amino acids have been studied as a treatment for conditions affecting the nervous system, memory, and preventing cognitive decline. Amino acid treatments can help clear brain fog, as well as help improve memory and concentration.
6. Healing and recovery
Amino acids are vital to repair and heal damaged muscle or skin tissue. Not only do they compose muscle, they also help form blood clots and manage the release of hormones to trigger the healing and rebuilding of muscle and tissue. Proline, a conditional amino acid, helps combat hardening of the arteries by helping arteries release fat buildup and decrease blood pressure.
7. Detoxify your body
Some amino acids function as detoxifiers and antioxidants themselves, while others offer support to the liver and neutralize ammonia. Amino acids line our circulatory and digestive systems to ensure we absorb the nutrients we need while helping filter out what we don’t. Amino acids’ anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects also help reduce damage to muscles.
8. Enhanced sleep and mood
Our bodies turn the essential amino acid tryptophan into melatonin and serotonin, which are responsible for regulating sleep cycles and mood. Amino acids phenylalanine and tyrosine are responsible for producing dopamine, which helps us feel pleasure, learn skills, and form memories.
9. Improve athletic performance
Nearly all amino acids play some role that can help increase athletic performance. From fatigue reduction, to supporting blood flow, to decreasing recovery from strenuous activity, anyone who regularly pushes their body to the limit can benefit from amino acid treatments.
10. Enhance beauty
Amino acids are key ingredients in collagen, the protein which makes up the vast majority of our skin, elastin, and muscle. Amino acids also help create beta-keratin, which is the primary protein in skin, nails, and hair. Ensuring the body has plenty of amino acids ensures it has the building blocks necessary for us to look and feel our best.
