Can amino acids help fight infections?

Every day, your body is exposed to numerous viruses and bacteria which we loosely describe as germs. At some times of the year, the numbers of infectious organsims are increased and we are more likely to succumb to an infection. It is important to practice good hygiene and to give your body the best chance to maintain a strong immunity.  It is your immune system that will ultimately  combat and defeat these infections.   It does this by making millions of copies of its defensive army of proteins, and each protein is built from amino acids. You can read more about this on our blog about how the body fights viral infections or our blog on how we make antibodies. It is thus vital that you keep up your levels of amino acids to ensure the body has sufficient supply to maintain a strong immune system.  One way to do this is with OptimAAte our next generation amino acid biotechnology.

Provision of amino acid supplements can help deliver vital amino acids needed by the body to build immune proteins to attack the viruses.

OptimAAte® contains high-demand amino acids that can potentially help the body.

ElectrAAte® has been designed to provide the high-demand amino acids, plus the electrolytes, that can be lost through sweat and urine. These losses can be amplified during a flu or serious cold, especially during the phase of high body temperatures and sweats.
