The Best Amino Acids For Weight Loss

The Best Amino Acids For Weight Loss

A fifth of our body is made up of different proteins, making them a crucial participant in chemical and metabolic processes that go on in the body.

Amino acids are the basic building blocks for proteins.

They give your cells a unique structure and shapes, hence the body heavily relies on the proper intake of amino acids in the form of proteins which are broken down in your stomach by different enzymes.

Correct intake of these amino acids can lead to beneficial effects such as weight loss.

Some of the best amino acids for weight loss are Methionine, Arginine, Carnitine and Glutamine, Leucine, Tyrosine, Tryptophan and Phenylaline.

Amino Acids use different principles to aid the body in losing weight. For instance, some cause the brain to aid in weight loss by reducing the desire to eat unnecessarily.

Some on the other hand, transfer fat to be burnt instead of storing it for future use.

Best pharmaceutical amino acids are available at cheap prices with high qualities from specific manufacturer, online and locally as well.

If used correctly, these amino acids can save you a great deal of workout you wanted to do for a lean and slimmer body.

The Amino Acids


Carnitine is an essential compound for burning fat, while it is not a proper amino acid, it can be classified as one due to its derivation from Lysine and Methionine.

Cartinine acts as a stimulant to prevent fat storage and instead redirects fat to the metabolic furnace. Since the fat is being burnt, energy will surge throughout your body.

You will feel more active, forceful and better in general. It is essential that you workout, however minimal it may be, to use the extra energy into aiding the development of muscles.


Under proper workout habits, correct diet, balanced nutrition intake and usage of cartinine injection, losing weight will be a child’s play.

An amazing body physique, toned muscles and cuts, with a slim body can bring quality to your life in no time. This makes cartinine one of the best and the most effective amino acids for losing weight.


Arginine is an amino acid which cause rapid release of nitric oxide, causing blood vessels to expand and oxidation to increase in the body.

You will feel improved performance, large amount of energy and increased endurance.

The growth hormone is also released by the glands in the brain causing muscle development, and new muscle growth.

Fat stores are rapidly depleted to use for energy and make muscles, as well as to make room for them.


Glutamine is the best counter action to storage of fat. It can be directly converted to glucose in the kidney which means the pancreas wont have to be effected to regulate glucagon and insulin levels in the body.


Hence, it gives you sustained energy, and the pancreas doesn’t trigger insulation production. This means any insulin induced fat that would have been stored by your body has not been bypassed.

This helps in countering storage of dietary fats and and regulate weight, Glutamine can also reduce desires for alcohols and sugars which are key factors in gaining weight.


Methionine, another amino acid which can do wonders in terms of detoxifying the body and cleansing it of all harmful chemicals.

It readily boosts metabolism and and acts as a catalyst for burning fat. It helps in the destruction of adipose tissue and removing layers of fat from the liver and cleansing it of harmful substances, which helps in weight loss.


Leucine is a strong stimulus for inducing the feeling of being full by releasing hormones in the body. It is noted Leucine along with regular diet can cause a 22% increased effect in contrast to a simple diet alone.


Phenylaline a similar amino acid which causes the brain to stop identifying hunger and maintain appropriate body weight once desired results have been attained.

Tryptophan works on similar principles to Leucine but instead acts as a sedative and regulate hormone and insulin release. Tryposine on the other hands works like Cartinine which boosts fat burning metabolic processes.

  1. Thank you for such an educational article. I read it twice… I seem to be having a hard time grasping. I think I need these supplements to improve my mind. Hehe

    But yeah, I do agree with what your article is saying that these amino acids are vital for our body. I like the arginine cause it helps blood vessels to widen and thus improve blood flow.
    Many working people these days are lacking the energy to keep up with modern day stressful living.

  2. This is a great and interesting post. I go to GNC to buy my products that I use in conjunction with eating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I never really thought of them as amino acids, but I have purchased and still do purchase Arginine, L-Carnitine, and Leucine…all of which come in supplements I buy. You also did a great review on Old School New Body. Very interesting information and I am glad I ran across your post. Thank you!

  3. Great to get a scientific look here at weight loss. I didn’t realize that amino acids played such a crucial role.

    One question. Are there any side effects of supplementing with Amino acids? I’m guessing it’s pretty important to work out the right amounts to take, in conjunction with your workout program?

    1. To supplement in large doses may lead to side effects but why would you want to take those large doses Nathan? I mean, at the end of the day you can overdo it with just about anything (even vitamins LOL). Just keep things real with your intake! 🙂

  4. Protein is so important for healthy weight loss as it suppresses appetite and it boosts the metabolic rate so you burn more calories overall. This thermogenic effect lasts for 15 hours or more after a protein-rich meal, and is why higher protein, lower carb diets can be more effective than low fat or low calorie approaches for some people who find it difficut to lose weight. A calorie is not just a calorie – a protein-derived calorie can be your weight loss friend!

  5. I have learned a lot about vitamins and minerals and the problems caused by their deficiency in recent years due to chronic health problems. I know the B vitamins, D, magnesium etc. are vital and some people like myself are deficient in them causing many problems. I am not very familiar with the amino acids though.

    Do you think most people get what they need from food or do they need supplements? The vitamins and minerals are often lacking in our modern diets (even if you eat fruits and vegetables etc. due to soil depletion, processing, nutrient loss during transportation etc.) so many people are deficient.

    1. Well, as you put it – vitamins and minerals are often lacking in our modern diets!

      I take supplements for a health condition I handle – I also don’t believe the majority of foods we can purchase these days are up to standard with vitamins and minerals!

      Everyone is different but I would hazard a guess that most people out there have no idea about the lack of ‘good stuff’ they are getting from their food choices…

  6. Hey Chris!!
    Super cool and extremely informative article! I am always looking for weight management supplements and with this article of yours, I have learned something new! I’ve never considered additional amino acids in my diet.
    Been always very cautious with extra protein intakes in case of bladder or kidney infections. But I guess with the right prescriptions, all will be well.
    Thank you again for this article! Will definitely continue following you 🙂

    1. Hi there Natalie – thanks for the kind words and feedback on the article!

      I hope our future articles will appeal to you just as much as this one did 🙂

  7. Hi Chris,
    I feel like taking a science class here, reading your article. I am not very good at science but you wrote it so well, simple and easily understood.
    I didn’t know amino acid can help in weight loss. But am sure that people who are onto building body muscles are familiar with these. Any how, this is good information. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Wow a science class – I feel all clever all of a sudden haha! 

      No seriously – really great to hear you enjoyed the article Sharon!
