Amino-Gram Forte tablets, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contain a nutritionally balanced mixture of essential, conditionally essential, and important non-essential amino acids.
Amino acids have many functions in the body. They are the building blocks for all body proteins—structural
proteins that build muscle, connective tissue including skin, bone and other structures, and functional proteins
in the form of thousands of metabolically active enzymes. Amino acids provide the body with the nitrogen that
is essential for growth and maintenance of all tissues and structures. Aside from these general functions,
individual amino acids also have specific functions in many aspects of human physiology and biochemistry.
Amino acids serve as precursors for many nitrogenous substances. These include heme, purines, pyrimidines,
hormones, and neuro-transmitters, including biologically active peptides. In addition, many proteins contain
amino acids that have been modified for a specific function, e.g., calcium binding or collagen cross-linking.
In the fasting state, blood plasma contains all metabolically important amino acids in characteristic
concentrations, and each amino acid is present in a defined ratio relative to the others. After a meal, the ratios
of plasma amino acids change to reflect amino acid intake, but return later to their original levels. Normal
plasma amino acid levels are extremely susceptible to physiological state and show considerable variability.
The plasma amino acid profile impacts the entry of individual amino acids into the tissues. Of particular
importance is the effect of the plasma amino acid profile on the uptake of amino acids into the brain across
the blood-brain barrier. As a result, alterations in the plasma amino acid profile can lead to changes in the
amino-acid dependent synthesis of neurotransmitters and other nitrogenous compounds in the brain.
Amino-Gram Forte™ tablets may be a useful nutritional supplement for individuals who wish to obtain a
balanced spectrum of nutritionally important amino acids.
