What are the individual aminos and how do they work?? Our good friend Ben Greenfield is a fitness expert, researcher, and accomplished author, who recently did a podcast with Dr. Minkoff on Essential Amino Acids, which you can listen to HERE. Ben then wrote this article to explain the essential amino acids in a very clean and concise way. Here is some of what he said:
Have you ever heard of Private Tim Hall, AKA Pvt. Tim Hall? If you’re a biology or chemistry geek, you probably have, because his name is the mnemonic commonly used to remember these essential amino acids, which are, drumroll please:
Phenylanine, Valine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Isoleucine, Methionine, Histidine, Arginine,Leucine and Lysine.
Thanks Tim, we’ll send you a check if we ever win money in Biology Trivial Pursuit.
Anyways, let’s take a look at why the heck Pvt. Tim might do us good during exercise, starting with P.
OK, that almost wraps it up for good ol’ Private Tim Hall.
The only thing I didn’t mention is that the EAA’s have a bit of an insulin and cortisol increasing effect, which confuses some people as to why EAA’s would be good. But before you draw back in shock and go flush all your essential amino acids down the toilet because you heard insulin and cortisol make you fat, remember that both insulin and cortisol are crucial (in smaller amounts) for the “anabolic process”, or the growth, repair and recovery of lean muscle tissue.
So the amount of these hormones you get in essential amino acids is far different than the stress and insulin and cortisol response you get from, say, doing burpees with your mother-in-law while eating a pint of ice cream smothered in whiskey while working on an all-nighter project for work.

As mentioned above, the reason they are called “Essential” is because they are not made by the body and must be obtained from an outside source. Histadine and Arginine are two that although they do fall into this category, when you put in the other 8, the body can now make these final two. In developing the formula for PerfectAmino, it was determined that this exact blend of these amino acids is, well, perfect, and the body can and does subsequently make the necessary Histadine and Arginine.
Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.
But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
Chronic inflammation is one of the most dangerous conditions to affect the human body. The WHO estimates that three out of five deaths worldwide are associated with chronic inflammatory diseases (stroke, cancer, heart disorders, and other conditions and diseases).
Now, that doesn’t mean that everyone who suffers from chronic inflammation is going to die – quite the contrary. But it does mean that it is crucial to identify the condition and address it early before it progresses into a disease or serious health condition.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly one in five adults in the U.S. live with a mental illness. Many of these people have been prescribed medication to treat conditions such as depression, ADHD, anxiety, and hundreds of other cataloged mental disorders.
But what if these mental illnesses weren’t the result of an imbalance in the brain, but instead were caused by something as simple as a yeast infection?
Well, we are not about to make a ridiculous statement like “All depression is caused by candida” or anything like that, but today we’re going to honestly review what effects an overgrowth of candida can have on your body and your mental health.
Furthermore, we’re going to provide guidance on how to resolve a candida infection.
