I frequently get questions about why there are amino acids in
L-Leucine: has a vital role in hemoglobin formation, blood sugar regulation, growth & repair of muscle and bone tissue.
L-Lysine: is active against viruses like Herpes Simplex.
L-Isoleucine: stimulates immune functions and facilitates wound healing and detoxification.
L-Threonine: is essential for the nervous system and has a role in the build-up of tooth enamel and collagen, prevention of fatty liver, and indigestion.
L-Valine: promotes muscle- and mental vigor/emotional calm.
Natural sources of essential amino acids are; meat, fish, chicken, eggs, dairy products, cereals, and legumes. In addition to the five amino acids, Good Idea also contains a small amount of chromium picolinate that increases insulin sensitivity, meaning that less insulin is needed to transport the energy (glucose) from our blood stream into the cells.
