Amino acids play a huge role in faster weight loss – specifically quick fat loss – and overall fitness.
If you don’t get the required amino acids, losing weight fast can be difficult if not downright impossible.
Your hormones are a big factor in whether you gain weight or stay thin and trim. Amino acids can jump-start or trigger hormones that aren’t doing their part in keeping you in shape and that’s why they are so important to any quick weight loss plan. (There’s also a lot of interesting data coming out about using amino acids to get the body to heal itself of other chronic diseases or jump start it’s own fountain of youth! But that’s a story for another day…)
It’s called Somatotropin, STH. That’s why getting enough sleep when you are trying to lose weight is crucial. People who are overweight are generally found to be deficient in this hormone. Yet, you can’t really supplement directly with this hormone safely. That means you must either get (a lot) more sleep OR supplement with an amino acid that can make you produce more of this hormone.
To turn these amino acids into growth hormone, also requires vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and zinc. This means a good vitamin supplement added to amino acid therapy is vital for fast or effective, long term weight loss too.
Luckily, we offer both of these – lipotropic amino acids and a great multivitamin – both in our practice and in our online store. Of course, injectable lipotropic amino acids are only available for current patients. If you are not a current patient, feel free to call in and make an appointment so we can get you started!
