When should I take Amino Acid Supplements?
Since free form amino acids don't require digestion to be absorbed so it's best to take them on an empty stomach either ½ hour before or an hour after eating. Amino acids that are taken on an empty stomach will not have to compete for absorption and you get the best possible results.
What's the best way to take Amino Acids?
Amino acids should be taken with a full glass of water. You need the water to give the body the liquid it needs to transport all of the nutrients to the cells in your body.
Some Amino acids are tasteless and some have very strong flavors and aromas. Flavors can vary from: sweet, tangy, sour, bitter, or like sulfur.
Amino acid powders can be taken sublingually (under the tongue) or mixed in liquid or applesauce. Although some amino acids are tasteless most have tastes that can range from sweet to bitter. So if the taste bothers you we suggest mixing your powder in juice or other non-protein drink or applesauce (applesauce works great with children).
Most amino acid powders are water soluble or semi-water soluble. So to get the best results when mixing your powder into a liquid we suggest putting your drink into a shaker and drinking it with a straw to ensure that you get all of the amino acid powder residue, which can settle at the bottom.
What is the shelf life of Amino Acids?
While amino acids generally don't spoil, they will lose their potency over time. How the amino acids are stored will play a large role in how long they retain their potency. If stored in airtight containers and kept in a cool, dark, dry place, amino acids can last up to 3-5 years but the general optimal potency guidelines please use within 2 years.
Where can I get more technical information on Amino Acids?
You may call or email our knowledgeable Customer Service staff and they can answer any questions you may have regarding any of our products. Although please keep in mind that we are not medical professionals and we CANNOT give medical advice or assist you with your choice of amino acids or the amount to take. We urge you to consult with your doctor, veterinarian or nutritionist for this information. In addition, there are many good books on the uses of amino acids. We have a recommended reading list available to guide you. You may also look at the following pages for more information on Amino Acids and our Blends:
