Did you know that amino acids are essential for almost every system in the body? The 23 amino acids our body uses can be found in protein we consume, but not everyone can assimilate the amino acids needed for optimum health. At NexGen Health, we offer amino acids IV therapy to deliver these essential nutrients directly to your bloodstream for better health.
Amino acids are essential for synthesizing almost every tissue in the body. Muscle, collagen, skin and other tissues rely on amino acids as their building blocks – neurotransmitters, hormones and enzymes also depend on amino acids for function. Unfortunately, not everyone has enough amino acids to repair tissues or perform certain functions. Even with adequate protein intake, some people are deficient in certain amino acids, impacting their health.
What Causes Amino Acid Deficiency?
The essential amino acids are found in a variety of foods, including animal and plant proteins and other sources. However, it is possible to eat enough protein and still be deficient in certain amino acids necessary for optimum health. Maldigestion is the main cause of amino acid deficiency. Not enough digestive enzymes or acids can result in the poor breakdown of protein. The amino acids are not absorbed and may pass through the body. Inflammation in the digestive system can also result in poor nutrient absorption, including amino acids.
Amino acids IV therapy can deliver essential amino acids to your bloodstream to improve your overall health. With the right levels of amino acids, your body can regulate hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters and tissue repair more effectively. Amino acids can also reduce digestive system inflammation and other imbalances.
