“Can you tell me what types of aminos are found in Sytropin spray? I’m anxious to try it out but am already taking an amino supplement and dont want to take too much…”
I got this email from a reader yesterday morning. I’m not sure why he emailed me personally (the customer service at Sytropin could have answered his question better than I, they are always helpful), but its a straightfoward question that i can help with.
First off, amino acids are found in your food, they aren’t something that are “dangerous” or that you have to worry about taking too much of, or overdosing or risking any side effects. Now, Wikipedia defines aminos as “biologically important organic compounds composed of amine and carboxylic acid”, which is quite a mouthful. I prefer to call them “those things you get from high-protein foods that help you build muscle tissue. I think my definition is much simpler, wouldnt you agree? Quite simply, amino acids are the building blocks of the protein that makes up muscle.
The amino acids in Sytropin are, in order:
Ornithine alpha ketoglutarate

The “L” in front of most of the amino acids just means that they are the type of amino acid that is found in protein, instead of the “R” form which the body cannot utilize as protein. Hope that helps :)
