Amino Acid Powders

24 results

Amino acids are the basic building blocks of protein and play several roles from fat oxidation (*1) to hormone production (*2). Choose from our wide range of high-quality amino acids supplements: leucine, arginine, BCAAs, citrulline malate, glutamine, D-aspartic acid and much more.

Amino acids for weight loss


Several amino acids can contribute to weight loss. The most prominent amino acid to fat loss is L-carnitine. L-carnitine plays a role in the transportation of fatty acids to the mitochondria, the energy factories in the cells (*3). It is here that fatty acids are burned for fuel.

Isoleucine prevents the accumulation of tissue triglycerides, a major factor in body fat makeup (*4).

Tyrosine and Phenylalanine stimulate the production of fat-burning neurotransmitters,such as epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine (*5), (*6),(*7). Tryptophan is a precursor of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates appetite.

Amino acids can work in many ways to help burn fat and lose weight. You can either take different amino acids or take an all-in-one amino acids supplement.
