Amino acids are the foundation of biology.
Muscle protein is made of amino acids. Most of your neurotransmitters are made from amino acids. Glutathione, the most important detox molecule in biology is made from amino acids. Enzymes that break down food and catalyze biochemical reactions are made from amino acids. Collagen is a combination of amino acids.
In short, your health depends on amino acids.
Therefore, the more you know about these critical building blocks of life, the greater health you can cultivate.
There are thousands of amino acids found in nature, but when it comes to biology living cells of everything from plants to elephants to humans only use a set of 20. And these 20 break down to 3 basic categories: Essential, Non-Essential, and Conditionally Essential.
From these 8 basic amino acids, the enzymes of your cells can synthesize all of the other 12 amino acids.
That means anything your body needs, every digestive enzyme, detox molecule, neurotransmitter, protein, or anything else can be reduced to these 8 basic ingredients.
Almost everything you need for optimal health comes down to amino acids.
This is the basis of Dr. Minkoff’s scientifically tested PerfectAmino formula, optimized for 99% utilization by your body.
However, because these can still be converted from the 8 basic essential amino acids, making sure to cover your 8 essentials first though attention to diet or with PerfectAmino is your best insurance policy for total health.
Amino acids are the foundation of your all biology, which also makes them the foundation of your health.

According to the CDC, 37 million people in the US have chronic kidney disease . And 90% of them don’t even know it. Kidney disease creates protein toxicity.
An estimated 100 million Americans live with impaired liver function and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease . And since the year 2000, deaths from liver cirrhosis have gone up a shocking 19.5% .
The liver is critical for processing the toxic byproducts of protein metabolism.
Everyone is affected by this. Continue reading now!
The principle of reaping what we sow is certainly relevant to any effort requiring endurance. A Hail Mary might occasionally work on the football field (think Doug Flutie), but don’t expect that kind of miracle while participating in a 5k, half-marathon or marathon.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about endurance, it’s that it can’t be faked for long. Things have a tendency of shaking out fairly quickly. We know when someone has put in the work.
As heavyweight boxing great Mike Tyson once said, “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”
