      Now Foods Amino-9 Essentials contains all 9 essential amino acids in their superior free-form state and in the proportions recommended by the National Academy of Sciences to optimize protein synthesis and tissue repair for adults age 19 and over. Now Foods Amino acids are the subunits that make up proteins. They are necessary for the function of all cells, for tissue repair, and for the production of enzymes and neurotransmitters. The body uses 20 amino acids to construct proteins, but nine "essential amino acids" cannot be made by the human body and must be supplied by the diet in order to achieve proper protein synthesis and maintain overall health. People with limited diets or poor digestion may not get enough essential amino acids from their diet.  In contrast to proteins or peptide-bound amino acids, Complete "Free-Form" Blend of all 9 Essential Amino Acids

      • A Dietary Supplement

      NOW's Mission
      The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

      In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

      History of NOW
      In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed – NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

      Essental amino acids are the amino acids the body can't make. L-glutamine and whey protein are a waste of money for building muscle. NOW has a well formulated formula too based on scientific research. It is amazing that there aren't more complete essential amino acid products being sold. If one takes branched amino acids that can affect phenylalanine levels, tyrosine levels and tryptophan levels as the branched chain amino acid transporter uptakes branched chain amino acids, phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan so if one takes branched chain amino acids alone that can adversely affect phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan levels. Phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan are required for neurotransmitter synthesis. Amino acids, of course, work together and must be balanced with each other.

      By Edward (Boulder , CO )

      I am a celiac who has hypoproteinemia, most likely secondary to Protein-Losing Enteropathy (PLE). My total protein on a CMP panel consistently reads 6.3 (range 6.3-8.2) without protein supplementation. I have used a couple jars of the NOW Amino-9 powder, with very good results. My hypoproteinemia causes middle insomnia; the Amino-9 powder (with a little extra tryptophan; tryptophan alone does not work) has solved that problem. In addition, I have had some muscular issues (e.g. a shoulder impingment) as a result of hypoproteinemia; the Amino-9 has accelerated my recovery. I like using free essential aminos because protein gets into the body very fast, without the delay, inefficiency, and waste generation that occur when digesting protein foods.
