Genius Nutrition® AMINOGEX is a supplement made up of nine essential amino acids. There are more than 20 amino acids currently in existence; some however, can be synthesized naturally by the body, whilst others cannot. The human body requires amino acids to perform all kinds of functions and internal processes, yet as mentioned, only some can be synthesized naturally. These are known as non-essential amino acids. Essential amino acids are amino acids which are required by the body, yet they cannot be produced naturally, so they have to be taken from food and dietary supplements. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein molecules, and therefore, they are essential for anyone looking to build and maintain lean muscle mass, as well as for anyone looking to simply enjoy optimal health and well-being.

AMINOGEX is made up of the following nine essential amino acids in free form (L):
Histidine is an essential amino acid that is involved in a whole variety of metabolic processes within the human body. It provides countless benefits for the user, although primarily, this particular amino acid is used by people dealing with joint issues and allergic reactions. In particular, histidine has been found to potentially have alleviating effects against arthritis and allergies. It has even been found to potentially help treat anaemia and ulcers.
Besides being an essential amino acid, isoleucine is actually one of three branched-chain amino acids, or BCAAs, and as a result, it is a very popular sports and bodybuilding supplement. Isoleucine has been found to enhance endurance, to assist with blood clotting and injury healing, and to help repair damaged muscle tissue.
Leucine is the second BCAA contained in the AMINOGEX, and the perfect amino acid for anyone looking to bulk up, build muscle, and repair their muscles after strenuous activity. Studies have found that leucine helps to initiate protein synthesis after workout almost instantaneously and, what is more, it has been found to be more potent than other amino acids and therefore, it helps to stimulate the body to synthesize more muscle proteins following workout. It also helps to stimulate insulin sensitivity which helps to regulate hormone levels and can help to control body fat percentages.
Lysine is another essential amino acid that plays a key role in tissue repair and growth and, what is more, it has been found to have very beneficial effects on the immune system. Studies have found that lysine can help to promote the production of anti-bodies within the body, which strengthen the immune system and provide a whole host of benefits for health and well-being. It also helps to strengthen the bones as it improves calcium uptake, so conditions such as osteoporosis and brittle bone disease can be avoided.
Besides providing stimulating effects on protein synthesis levels, this particular amino acid is best known for its positive effects on mental health. Phenylalanine is an amino acid that boosts brain health and function, and can potentially help to treat and prevent conditions such as depression, stress, and anxiety. The body utilises phenylalanine to produce chemical messengers and receptors in the brain, which help to produce feel-good hormones that promote feelings of relaxation and happiness.
This amino acid is best described as being a proteinogen amino acid. It is included in more and more fat burning supplements nowadays, due to the fact that it has been found to have fat dissolving properties once consumed. It also helps to prevent visceral fat build-up, helping to keep major organs, including the liver, a great deal healthier. On top of that, this amino acid plays a crucial role in the formation of cartilage, helping to keep the joints healthy and working effectively. It has even been found to boost keratin production and therefore, it can help keep the nails healthy and prevent hair loss.
Tryptophan is an amino acid that also plays a key role in mental health and well-being, as it functions as a precursor for serotonin production. Serotonin is a hormonal neurotransmitter which improves our mood, promotes a good night’s sleep, and generally makes us feel happier and more confident. The body naturally uses this amino acid and converts it to B vitamins, which are then used to produce serotonin. Tryptophan is actually found in many meat and dairy-based products, especially turkey.
Threonine is another essential amino acid that has a beneficial effect on the human nervous system. It has actually been found to potentially provide a level of protection against neurological conditions such as ALS and MS. When consumed, the body converts threonine to a compound known as glycine, which is then utilized via the brain to help to reduce muscle contractions and spasms. It is also very useful as it can prevent painful muscle cramps and it can alleviate DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) after workout.
And finally, the last of the nine essential amino acids in our product is actually the last of our three BCAAs - valine. Valine has stimulating properties and is essential for the repair and growth of muscle tissue. When combined with leucine and isoleucine, the other BCAAs, valine actually comprises of more than 70% of the amino acids found within the proteins of the human body. Studies have also linked low valine levels with impaired cognitive function, making it beneficial for the brain as well.
HOW IT WORKS
So, now that we know which amino acids are found in this AMINOGEX we need to find out how it works. Well, to be perfectly honest, if we were to list each and every single way in which AMINOGEX worked, we’d be here all day, so instead, we’ll try to touch upon the key points, as it were. AMINOGEX contains essential amino acids that the human body needs, but cannot produce on its own. These amino acids would ordinarily have to come from food sources, but that would take forever, because different foods contain different amino acids. This AMINOGEX blend however, gives you everything you need, all in one. For bodybuilding and athletic purposes, AMINOGEX is ideal because it contains amino acids that play vital roles in protein synthesis, which basically means that they help the body to create new muscle proteins and tissues to repair damaged ones following workout. There are also a number of amino acids present that have been proven to improve cognitive function and mental health, meaning that they strengthen and boost the brain’s health and power, whilst improving the user’s mental health and helping to protect against conditions such as stress and depression. Finally, there are also general health and well-being benefits due to the amino acids that strengthen the immune system and help to increase antibody production, and provide general health and wellness benefits for other major organs in the body. This AMINOGEX also contains amino acids that boost metabolism, increase energy levels, and help to burn off higher levels of body fat compared to those that would normally be burnt off.
BENEFITS OF AMINOGEX SUPPLEMENTATION
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein molecules, and as protein is vital for the growth and repair of muscle tissue, obviously ensuring you are getting enough amino acids is going to help you to increase your muscle mass and strength levels.
Convenience of use
As mentioned before, this dietary supplement contains amino acids known as "essential" amino acids which the body needs, but cannot synthesize on its own. This means that they need to come from dietary and supplementary sources, but trying to do this individually to get all nine amino acids would prove very costly and very time-consuming, as different foods and supplements contain different amino acids. AMINOGEX however, combines all nine amino acids in one product, so one serving will give you everything you need.
Improved mental health
Many of the amino acids contained in this supplement have been proven to provide significant mental health benefits to the user, helping to improve cognitive function, as well as simultaneously providing effects which could potentially help to treat and protect against mental health disorders such as stress and depression. Simply put, the AMINOGEX contained in this product will potentially make your brain healthier, and will make you feel happier and more content.
Improved general health and well-being
Many of the amino acids contained in this supplement have been proven to boost the immune system and immune function, and to help provide other benefits for health and well-being, by potentially treating and preventing certain illnesses and diseases. For people looking to boost their health and well-being, this supplement is absolutely ideal.
Although AMINOGEX is primarily used for bodybuilding and athletic purposes, some do prefer to use it for its health benefits. If this applies to you, simply combine it with a fish oil supplement and a multi-vitamin, and you’re all set. For a bodybuilding stack that is guaranteed to help you pile on the muscle mass, the following combination works extremely well: Fury Extreme, Glycogex, Crea-F7.
