How Do I Take PerfectAmino?

BodyHealth PerfectAmino and PerfectAminoXP tablets and powder the 8 essential amino acids for maximum 99% utilization by the body for building body protein

Many of you have asked us about the best way to take PerfectAmino® so you can achieve maximal benefits. We'd like to simplify the process and clear up any confusion so you can get optimal utilization from our essential amino acid supplement.

Understanding Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks that make up protein, and protein is essential for life. Without it, your body cannot perform normal functions like making muscle, repairing tissue or producing hormones. Protein is a crucial nutrient, without, no body functions can occur. The human body only produces 14 of the 22 amino acids—the remaining eight essential amino acids must come from an external source. Unlike PerfectAmino, other amino acid products do not contain all 8 essential amino acids, or include them in the wrong balance.*

Understanding PerfectAmino

PerfectAmino gives you the exact balance of amino acids required by your body, and because of PerfectAmino's unique design, up to 99% of it is "body available." In other words, the highest possible percentage of the nutritional benefits in the product is available to your body for use in growth, building, repairing and healing. And because almost all of the amino acids are burned or utilized, there is virtually no "acidic waste" or residue left in the body, unlike so many other amino acid products.*

When Should I Take PerfectAmino?

To receive max benefits from PerfectAmino, it should be taken every day, not just on days when you are physically active or sick. Daily consumption guarantees that your body has the nutrients it needs to stay strong and healthy. You can take PerfectAmino with fruits, vegetables or grains. If you’ve already just eaten other fats or proteins, try to give the body enough time to digest before taking a serving of PerfectAmino, usually 1-2 hours will be enough. After taking PerfectAmino, it's best to wait at least 23 minutes before eating proteins or fats to get maximum utilization and absorption.*

What is an Optimal Dose?

According to Dr. David Minkoff, MD, founder of BodyHealth.com, the normal dose for men is between 5-10 tablets (or 1-2 scoops of XP powder) every day. For women, the average dose is between 5-8 tablets (or 1-2 scoops of XP powder) daily.

If you're a professional athlete or are consistently involved in strenuous exercise, you will benefit from increasing your daily intake. For example, take 2-3 standard doses on these days. And if you have any chronic diseases or health conditions, it is recommended that you take 2-3 times your normal daily amount to supply your body with the raw materials needed to build and repair. Do keep in mind that regardless of your health needs, it is not recommended that you take more than 30 tablets ( or 6 scoops of XP powder) in one day.

PerfectAmino does not act as a meal replacement, but it's an excellent addition to any weight-loss program because it helps build muscle mass, and muscle burns more calories as metabolism increases. Each tablet contains less than one calorie.

There is a master anabolic switch hidden deep inside your cells. It unlocks rapid muscle growth, stimulates tissue repair, activates your immune system, and generally makes us stronger and more capable. 

It’s known as “mTOR.”

You may have heard of it in the bodybuilding and biohacking worlds. 

However, this master anabolic switch is not as straightforward as some might like you to believe. 

The equation is more complicated than mTOR = more muscle gain.

The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein.

At our clinic, the LifeWorks Wellness Center, we have many clients—male and female—who have problems with low energy, depression, and insomnia. With these patients, we’ll measure neurotransmitter levels, which include serotonin, dopamine, GABA, glutamate, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. The results tell the same story:

Symptomatic patients have neurotransmitter levels far below the optimal standards.

Even when patients have been given prescription psych medications by their doctor, their levels remain low because the drugs do not correct the underlying cause.
