    Now Foods Amino-9 Essentials - 150 Tablets

    Now Foods Amino-9 Essentials is a complete free form blend of all 9 essential amino acids. Now Foods Amino-9 Essentials contain 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.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.

    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.

    By John (New Castle , DE )

    Great product to insure that you are getting all of your amino acid needs met. I find that it is easily digested. Don't assume that you are meeting all of your amino acid needs. If you have a problem focusing or concentrating your dopamine levels could be low, or do you have trouble sleeping your serotonin levels could be low. Both of these hormones are derived from amino acids. I take 5 first thing in the morning with water and 5 about 2 hours before bed with water.

    I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!
