This formula contains a wide variety of free-form amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Protein plays a crucial role in all metabolic functions and in speeding up recovery. Factors around our every day lives prevent us from receiving essential amino acids. If one or more amino acids are lacking the production of protein is weakened and the metabolic function is limited. It is vital that the bodies amino acid levels are continually balanced. Inflammation may be reduced or prevented by the aid of amino acids.
