GemAminos, essential brain nutrition in a world full of split-second problem solving.
GemAminos exceptional brain support. Most people know that glutathione supports the immune system and liver. Did you know that L-glutathione is an important anti aging, anti oxidant for the brain? An ultimate brain fuel and antioxidant formula, it provides an incredibly powerful anti aging antioxidant for anyone wanting to be at their mental best.
Each cell in the body carries out far more intricate functions than any high performance engine. Chemical reactions timed to the millionths of a second cascade and flow through the cycles of a cell's activities. Many types of fuel are needed to maintain the peak vitality and function of cells, upon which physical health and energy depend.
Nerve cells are at the height of the cellular pecking order. They are the largest, most complex, and most fuel sensitive cells in the body. The richness of nerve cell organization in the brain gives a storage and creative capacity that dwarfs that of the mightiest supercomputers.
GemAminos provides a full spectrum blend of brain boosting, fuel rich amino acids and other potent nerve cell support nutrients. These amino acids can be converted to brain hormones that promote learning, memory and thinking functions or they can be used directly for brain energy, mental clarity and focus.
Among the most vital of all of life's building blocks, every protein and enzyme in the body is formed from amino acids linked together. Powerful whole-body energizing molecules like adrenaline are amino acid derived. Many of the major neurotransmitters are made from amino acids.
The most critical of all the aminos are the essential amino acids. The term essential is applied because the body is unable to make these amino acids from other nutrients. The body must ingest these specific amino acids in their exact chemical form from external sources. A deficiency of any of these aminos in the diet impairs protein synthesis. GemAminos provides all the essential amino acids.
The nutrients contained in GemAminos have been found to have powerful benefits. The potency of their effects is given a further boost through our patented laser energizing process. There is growing scientific evidence that this energizing process significantly enhances the nutrient effects of the ingredients. The strongest supportive data thus far has been derived from directly recording the electrical output of the brain.
Brain electrical activity is measured in a test called an EEG or electro-encephalogram. A brain map is an EEG that measures the power output of the brain at various locations over the brain surface. The alpha wave band is in the frequency of 8-12 cycles per second. The alpha wave band is in the frequency and has been called a "state of relaxation with enhanced awareness." In our initial studies we have observed an increased in alpha output power up to 50-70% over baseline after ingestion of energized GemAminos.
The main ingredients of our high-octane cell nutrition formula are free form amino acids, antioxidants, and brain chemistry boosting nutrients.
GemAminos contains a wide array of free amino acids that provide valuable fuel to the neurotransmitters in the brain. L-Phenylalanine promotes alertness and vitality; L-Lysine is vital in the makeup of critical body proteins and is needed for growth, tissue repair, and the production of anti-bodies, hormones and enzymes. Endorphins are natural pain relievers made in the brain. GemAminos contains DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA), which may help boost endorphin levels.
Our ability to learn can be enhanced with the right combination of nutrients. Glutamine and L-Tyrosine have been proven to be effective learning enhancers no matter how old or young. Both of these are included in the GemAminos formula.
Oxygen used for internal combustion within cells is vital for cell function. If fuel is not completely burned in the process of energy generation, highly reactive molecules called free radicals may be formed. Free radicals derive their name from having free or uncombined electrons, which aggressively rip out bits of other molecules to satisfy their need to combine. Free radicals may damage membranes, proteins and even DNA. Their presence is felt to be a factor in the aging of tissues and the risk of malignancy. Anti-oxidants neutralize free radicals and protect and preserve the integrity of tissues. Several anti-oxidant boosting ingredients are provided in GemAminos.
GemAminos are especially rich in glutathione, which has been called an anti-aging triple threat. It deactivates free radicals, is an anti-tumor agent and has provided benefit in allergies, diabetes, and arthritis. It has helped prevent harmful effects from high dose radiation, alcohol and cigarette smoke. Glutathione acts as a sentinel guarding against modern toxicity.
2 capsules in the morning one half hour before or 2 hours after eating
L-GLUTATHIONE is a critically important brain chemical and one of the most important brain antioxidants. Glutathione helps to preserve brain tissue by preventing damage from free radicals, destructive chemicals formed by the normal processes of metabolism, toxic elements in the environment, and as a normal response of the body to challenges by infectious agents or other stresses. Glutathione is also one of the most important components of the liver's detoxification system.
DL-PHENYLALANINE (DLPA) consists of equal parts of the D (synthetic) and natural L forms. Addition of the D component serves as an endorphin booster. Endorphins are natural pain relievers made in the brain. Increased endorphin levels promoted by DLPA have been associated with marked relief of chronically painful conditions, a strong mood elevating action, and pain relief that becomes more effective over time without having to increase the amount used.
L-TAURINE: This amino acid has a potent anti-oxidant action in the spaces between cells. It is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body. It is found in the central nervous system, skeletal muscle and is very concentrated in the brain and heart. It is synthesized from the amino acids methionine and cysteine, in conjunction with vitamin B6. Animal protein is a good source of taurine, as it is not found in vegetable protein. Vegetarians with an unbalanced protein intake, and therefore deficient in methionine or cysteine may have difficulty manufacturing taurine. Taurine is necessary for the chemical reactions that produce normal vision, and deficiencies are associated with retinal degeneration. Besides protecting the retina, taurine may help prevent and possibly reverse age-related cataracts. Low levels of taurine and other sulphur containing amino acids are associated with high blood pressure, and taurine supplements have been shown to lower blood pressure in some studies.
Other possible uses for Taurine supplementation include eye disease, cirrhosis, depression and male infertility due to low sperm motility and hypertension. Possible symptoms of toxicity include diarrhea and peptic ulcers. For those considering taurine supplements, taurine is known to have a calming or depressant effect on the central nervous system, and may impair short-term memory. Taurine is present in meats and animal products, but not in plant products.
L-HISTIDINE: Relieves stress and may enhance libido. It is intricately involved in a large number of critical metabolic processes, ranging from the production of red and white blood cells to regulating antibody activity. Histidine also helps to maintain the myelin sheaths that surround and insulate nerves. In particular, Histidine has been found beneficial for the auditory nerves, and a deficiency of this vital amino acid has been noted in cases of nerve deafness.
L-ARGININE and L-ORNITHINE: Converted into one another their effects are mutually reinforcing. They act together to promote growth hormone release, especially beneficial after the age of 30. Growth hormone promotes muscle building and fat burning and has been shown to have profound age reversing properties in older persons. Arginine and ornithine also promote physical and mental alertness, may increase sperm counts in males, and can accelerate wound healing. The immune response is generally enhanced. Arginine and ornithine should not be given to growing children or schizophrenic persons. Occasionally a herpes condition can be aggravated, which effect is counterbalanced in this product by the presence of lysine. Skin thickening can occur at extremely high ingestion levels, much higher than in his product, which effect is reversible with a reduction in intake. Any physical trauma increases the need for dietary Arginine for tissue repair. Connective tissue can also be strengthened to give healthier tendons and ligaments.
L-GLUTAMINE and L-GLUTAMIC ACID:Glutamic acid serves primarily as a brain fuel and can absorb excess ammonia, which would otherwise impair high performance brain function. Glutamine is formed when glutamic acid combines with ammonia. Glutamine can improve intelligence even in the mentally deficient. It may enhance mood and relieve fatigue. Its use has helped control alcoholism, sped the healing of stomach ulcers, and overcome impotence.
L-METHIONINE is the initial amino acid of the chain in all protein synthesis. Evidence in lab animals suggests it may promote hair growth. It is one of the sulphur containing amino acids and is important in many body functions. Through its supply of sulphur, it improves the tone and pliability of the skin, conditions the hair and strengthens nails. The mineral sulphur also protects the cells from airborne pollutants, such as smog, slows down the aging process in the cells, and is involved with the production of protein. Methionine is essential for the absorption and transportation and bioavailability of selenium and zinc in the body. It also acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver, and is an excellent chelator of heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium and mercury, binding them and aiding in their excretion from the body.
L-TYROSINE is a precursor of the important brain neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine, which transmit nerve impulses and are essential to prevent depression. Dopamine is vital to mental function and seems to play a role in sex drive.
DMAE is found predominantly in fish oils. It helps elevate mood, improve memory and learning, increase intelligence and physical energy, and has been proven to extend life in laboratory tests.
L-LYSINE: Vital in the makeup of critical body proteins, lysine is needed for growth, tissue and repair, and production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. Lysine can promote better concentration and improve the burning of fat for energy production, reduce the risk of herpes infections or recurrence, and aid in reliving some fertility problems.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine used as a nutritional supplement has recently become popular based upon compelling evidence of its ability to slow the degradation of mental functions suffered by Alzheimer's patients. ALC has also grown in popularity as a nutrient taken by healthy people looking to increase mental functions while slowing the loss of memory normally associated with the aging process. L-ASPARTIC ACID: By aiding in the expulsion of harmful ammonia, Aspartic acid protects the nervous system. Athletes given salts of aspartic acid showed increased stamina and endurance. Immune system function has also been enhanced. L-ALANINE: May alleviate hypoglycemia and improve immune system function. It is a non-essential amino acid that can be manufactured by the body from other sources as needed. Alanine is one of the simplest of the amino acids and is involved in the energy-producing breakdown of glucose. In conditions of sudden anaerobic energy need, when muscle proteins are broken down for energy, Alanine acts as a carrier molecule to take the nitrogen-containing amino group to the liver to be changed to the less toxic urea, thus preventing buildup of toxic products in the muscle cells when extra energy is needed. Because the body easily constructs Alanine from other sources, no deficiency state is known. Alanine is found in a wide variety of foods, but is particularly concentrated in meats. L-GLYCINE: The simplest chemical structure of the aminos, remarkable benefits have been attributed to its use. It has proven helpful to improve pituitary gland function and works synergistically with Arginine and ornithine to stimulate growth hormone release. I it helps supply muscles with essential energy for muscle function. Glycine has also proved useful for low blood sugar and in relieving over secretion of stomach acid. L-THREONINE promotes the proper utilization of dietary protein. It is an essential amino acid & not manufactured by the body and must be acquired from food. It is an important constituent in many body proteins and is necessary for the formation of tooth enamel protein, collagen and elastin. It is a precursor to the amino acids Glycine and serine. It acts as a lipotropic in controlling fat build-up in the liver. L-VALINE, L-LEUCINE, and L-ISOLEUCINE are known as branched chain amino acids, the most potent muscle builders of the aminos. Their use can reduce appetite, reverse the tendency of muscles breakdown with heavy exertion, and increase muscle growth. Within two hours of ingestion, 100 percent of branched chain amino acids are available to muscle. GLUCOSAMINE is required by the body for the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). These long chains of modified sugars make up many body tissues, including tendons, ligaments, cartilage, mucus membranes in the digestive and respiratory tracts, and structures in the eyes, blood vessels, and heart valves. In a test conducted with GemAminos over 120 day period, the majority of the 300 respondents reported: increased physical energy, greater mental clarity, deeper insights, enhanced creativity, a brighter outlook on the future, decreased stress levels, higher levels of serenity, and more confidence in facing daily life. GemAminos is more than solid nutrition; it's food for the mind, body and spirit.
L-Phenylalanine, DL-Phenylalanine, and L-Tyrosine: Should be used with physician guidance if you have elevated blood pressure, heart problems, or skin cancer. Should be avoided in persons with phenylketonuria or pregnant or nursing women. L-Ornithine: Pregnant and lactating women should avoid this nutrient. It is advised against in people under age 21 and in schizophrenic persons. Niacin: May cause flushing (a feeling of warmth and reddening of the skin). This effect is temporary and harmless. L-Arginine: May aggravate a tendency to herpes eruptions, which taking 3-6 grams of L-lysine per day may counteract. It is advised against in people under age 21 and in schizophrenic persons. Should be avoided in pregnant and lactating women. Avoid L-arginine when subject to frequent migraine headaches, taking medication for depression, autoimmune disorders (like lupus, inflammatory bowel disease, or multiple sclerosis), breast cancer, liver cirrhosis, or AIDS. 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5HTP): Should not be taken by persons on monoamine oxidase inhibitor anti- depressants. Persons taking Serotonin Specific Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) anti-depressants like Prozac or Zoloft should consult with their health care practitioners before taking 5HTP supplements. Persons who have had sensitivity to 5HTP should avoid further use. DMAE: Should be monitored by your physician if epilepsy or manic-depressive illness is present, otherwise it is safe.
