Amino Supplements given their important role in body health
My health has improved in so many ways, that this product it is almost unbelievable. I tuned 70 last September, have my share of age related health issues and every one of them has improved, from my eyesight becoming sharper, my skin becoming smoother, my stamina improving, my balance now 100% and various other health issues.
I started off taking 5 a day which is the minimum recommended, and after doing that for 10 days as I was noticing improvements and as I’m 194 cm tall and weigh 110 Km I increased it to 5 twice a day.
I then started watching every video I could find on EAA’s to learn as much as I could, and now I take 5 in the morning when I wake up, another 5 half an hour before I go for my daily walk and another 5 when I come back, as per the advice from that doctor who has completed the Iron-man triathlon 42 times. - Stewart C., PerfectAmino Pure Essential Amino Acids customer.

99% of MAP amino acids are used as building blocks in the body for protein synthesis. In comparison, only 18% of the amino acids from any other amino acid formula can be used as building blocks. Worse, less than 1% of supplemental BCAAs are utilised. Ten tablets (10g) contain the following: L-Leucine.................................................1.964 g L-Lysine....................................................1.429 g L-Phenylalanine......................................1.289 g L-Tryptophan.......................................... 0.368 g L-Isoleucine.............................................1.483 g L-Valine....................................................1.657 g L-Methionine............................................0.599 g L-Threonine.............................................1.111 g
PerfectAmino™ is the famed MAP (Master Amino Acid Pattern) of 8essential amino acids the body needs to support and maintain its muscular, skeletal, enzymatic, and hormonal systems. The essential amino acids in PerfectAmino are in the exact proportions needed for maximum utilisation by the body.
AMINO ACIDS – THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF PROTEIN
Many people know that protein is essential for optimum health, but most assume they are consuming enough from food. So why the need for an amino acid supplement? The simple answer is that – yes, you do get good quality from foods such as eggs, meat, fish and nuts but much of the protein in food is not converted into body protein – it just makes waste that the body has to get rid of plus extra calories.
Almost everyone is protein deficient without realising it – it plays out as a nagging injury that won’t heal in the athlete, or brittle bones in the menopausal women, or constant colds in the child. Protein deficiency is very often something you are aware of, but you just can’t identify and neither does your doctor. Not getting enough protein may mean low hormones, or a low immune system and risk of disease or cancer. So what’s the solution? PerfectAmino is an amino acid supplement that is 99% utilised by the body to make protein. No other form of protein comes close!
PerfectAmino™ Nothing else is utilised as well to make protein.
What’s the Difference Between Protein Sources?
Quality, quality and quality.
The chart illustrates the Amino Acid Utilization (AAU™) that PerfectAmino offers, dramatically greater than dietary protein sources and equivalent to the utilization of MAP*.
At the low end of the spectrum are branched chain amino acids – only 1% of their content is utilized by the body with 99% resulting in waste that your body must then process and eliminate.
Whey and soy proteins – only 18% or less of their content is utilized by the body with 83% leaving as waste.
Food like meat, fish and poultry fare a bit better with 32% being absorbed and 68% being wasted.
Eggs are the winners in the food stakes with 48% being utilized and 52% converted to waste.
Now compare those numbers to PerfectAmino – a massive 99% is put to work by the body, with only 1% leaving as waste. Not only that, but PerfectAmino is absorbed by the body within 23 minutes! And there is only 0.4 of a calorie per tablet.
From Dr. Minkoff: In light of the fact that I’ve been recommending MAP* for many years now, I’ve recently been asked why I have developed PerfectAmino as an effective alternative to MAP*. The primary reason is that I wanted to make this important supplement more affordable, especially for those individuals who require higher than the minimum recommended dose. I’m thrilled to be able to now offer PerfectAmino – same amino acid content and body utilization as MAP*, with verified purity, quality and affordable value!
In my medical practice I routinely encounter patients who are severely deficient in one or more essential amino acids, and this deficiency may be preventing them from healing. Also, as a participant in triathlons and other sports racing events, I encounter athletes of various levels who maintain relatively intense training regimens. These individuals often require higher doses (as compared to the minimum recommended five tablets) of an amino acid supplement like MAP* or PerfectAmino to provide their bodies adequate building blocks for protein synthesis – critical for healing from disease, muscle recovery and stamina, etc. PerfectAmino represents an affordable and equally effective option to MAP*.
I have gone to great lengths to ensure that PerfectAmino has been produced and tested in a manner that assures its quality, purity, and effectiveness. PerfectAmino is manufactured in a cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility, and the end product has been laboratory tested for product consistency and purity. This testing includes testing for heavy metals content far beyond that required by FDA regulations. I now use PerfectAmino myself and experience the same benefits I did from MAP*.
What's Inside PerfectAmino™
PerfectAmino ingredients contain the eight essential amino acids:
Tryptophan encourages the release of serotonin and melatonin.
Lysine deficiency can result in a deficiency in niacin (Vitamin B). It is beneficial in treating and preventing herpes.
Methionine supplies sulphur and other compounds required by the body for normal metabolism and growth.
Valine is needed for muscle metabolism, tissue repair, and for the maintenance of proper nitrogen balance in the body.
Leucine stimulates muscle protein synthesis and may be the major fuel involved in anabolic (tissue building) reactions.
Isoleucine is important for blood sugar regulation, muscle development and repair and energy regulation.
Threonine is important for antibody production. It can be converted into glycine and serine.
Phenylalanine stimulates certain hormones including adrenaline and noradrenaline, which are activating substances in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
PerfectAmino ingredients contain no fat, sodium, sugar, yeast, gluten, soy, corn, wheat, rice, GMO, preservatives, excipients, dairy or animal products. (Store in a cool, dry place.)”

Frequently Asked Questions About PerfectAmino™
Q: What is PerfectAmino?
A: PerfectAmino is a dietary protein substitute that contains 8 essential amino acids in a highly purified, free, crystalline form.
Q: What are essential amino acids?
A: Essential Amino Acids are nutrients that are indispensable for human life because they cannot be synthesized within the human body, therefore, they must be supplied through the diet.
Q: Are amino acids from animal or vegetable source?
A: Amino acids cannot be classified as either animal or vegetable. They are, simply, natural compounds.
Q: Where are the amino acids sourced from?
A: The amino acids in PerfectAmino products are derived from plant based sources such as beans and peas mixed with a culture that breaks them down to a sugar form. Then the individual amino acids are extracted from the broth using a process involving centrifugal force which separates them by their weights. They are pure, pharmaceutical grade, crystalline amino acids. There are no plant residues or sugars, yeast, gluten, soy, corn, wheat, rice, preservatives, excipients or animal products. They are vegan. They are produced in a cGMP Laboratory in the USA.
Q: What is the daily recommended dosage of PerfectAmino for an athlete to get the best results in the shortest time?
A: Even though individual dosage may vary according to nutritional status, age, gender, and the intensity and frequency of physical activity, the average suggested daily dosage should be: * For the professional athlete: 10 tablets of PerfectAmino, 30 minutes before training, in conjunction with the daily requirement of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. And an additional 10 tablets of PerfectAmino to be taken 30 minutes before the next meal (lunch or dinner).
Q: It has been said that during an athletic performance the use of PerfectAmino may optimize muscle mass, strength and endurance, and may minimize the muscle recovery period after physical activity, is that true for everybody?
A: Yes. Whether, you are 15 or 75 years old, an amateur or a professional athlete, you may experience positive results related to your muscle mass, strength and endurance. The results may vary, of course, according to your age, gender, health status, and the intensity and frequency of your workout.
Q: Is PerfectAmino a natural product?
A: Yes, PerfectAmino is a 100% natural product.
Q: How long does it take to digest PerfectAmino?
A: PerfectAmino is digested within 23 minutes from its ingestion.
Q: Does PerfectAmino have any drug or food interaction?
A: No. PerfectAmino does not have any drug or food interaction. However, before taking PerfectAmino or other dietary supplements consult your physician.
Q: May protein supplements be taken with PerfectAmino?
A: No. Protein supplements should not be taken in conjunction with PerfectAmino. This may prevent: a lowering of BPS/min; an increase in the nitrogen catabolites; and an overloading of digestive functions
Q: How long do you have to use PerfectAmino to be able to feel or measure positive results?
A: Results may vary. However, you may be able to feel or measure an increase in muscle endurance after the first or second time using PerfectAmino (in the suggested dosage). Meanwhile, you may be able to measure an increase in muscle strength after the first or second week using PerfectAmino (in the suggested dosage). Later on, by using PerfectAmino, during physical activity, you may be experiencing, week after week, an increase in muscle mass, strength and endurance, joined with a shortened recovery period after physical activity. Eventually you may realize that this dramatic improvement is not the result of a "psychological effect" but has indeed been caused by a natural physiological effect.
Q: I've read there are 9 'essential' amino acids. Why did you leave out Histidine in PerfectAmino?
A: Histidine is actually not essential. When you take PerfectAmino the Histidine level in the blood will rise within 1 hour. The absolute genius of PerfectAmino is that when you have the essential 8 all the others can be made as needed.
Also worth noting: Arginine, sometimes also touted as an “essential” amino acid, levels will rise alongside Histidine after taking PerfectAmino. When you take PerfectAmino, the body has all it needs to make any and all proteins - That, by the way, is why it's called PerfectAmino!
"I want to reach out and personally thank Dr. Minkoff and his world-class crew at Bodyhealth for doing what it took to bring 'PerfectAmino' to the marketplace!
As a professional coach/trainer/multi-sport athlete since 1981, I have done my best to bring awareness to athletes and all people the vital importance of being in a positive nitrogen balance. It's hard to gain such an ongoing state of cellular foundation, repair, and regeneration without overloading the GI Tract via 'natural' foods these days, so a quality amino acid supplement is first and foremost my most fundamental priority as a coach and as an athlete.
Last weekend, at age 52, I was beyond belief as I took the win in America's (if not the world's) highest Nordic marathon; the Leadville Loppet (44k) in 3:46:48. I won the race in an average temperature of -16 degrees, in whiteout conditions, and at an average elevation of over 10,285'. You can only imagine how thankful I was to know that with each ski stride, with each poling motion exploding from my core fitness that i knew my cellular fitness was above and beyond that of racers over 3 decades YOUNGER than myself…all over whom were and finished behind me! Trust me, get on and STAY ON the Bodyhealth products, especially the new, PerfectAmino! Because we are only as old as the vibratory state of our cells. See YOU on the Start Line, no matter what your age!

Hey Guys! Quick update! I had my first race of 2015 - a double Duathlon. I did this last year and was 3rd so I wanted to test out my fitness a year older. I’ve been taking my daily doses of PerfectAmino, which included this race day, 10 in the morning, 40 mins before race then 5 immediately after and another 5 about 2 hours before bed to aid in sleep recovery. I drank Kaqun water before, during, and after the event as well.
Lately I’ve been coaching and playing with the rugby players. This added workout, along with my BodyHealth products, has given me my aggressiveness back. About 100m into the first run of 3, I jumped through the bushes and into the lead just to blow everyone up. It worked. The plan wasn't to stay in the lead only to disrupt the flow.
This year the 3 runs were in technical and muddy single track. The two bike segments are very technical and high power. I averaged about 280 watts. I kept my run pace just below 7 min.
RESULTS: I finished top 10 overall, 1st in my age group and 3rd in the open masters! I felt great and still feel great this morning, off to a super start! Oh, and BTW, I was 3 minutes faster than last year! BOOM! Be well,

I am a 54 year old Triathlete and this product makes me perform like I am in my twenties again. I have exhaustingly researched and taken performance supplements for the last 3 years trying to find the best supplement to naturally enhance athlete performance. Let me save you the time and money, this is it.
Every morning I take my PerfectAmino first-thing and I never skip a day. This is the best thing I have found. Best regards,

I am a 44-year old weekend-warrior athlete. Last year I did 22 events, including 5K, 10K, half-marathon and obstacle-course-races like Tough Mudder. I had been relying on MAP* to help me with my work outs, increasing my strength and energy, while reducing or eliminating soreness and recovery. I switched to PerfectAmino recently and haven’t skipped a beat. Infact, I just did another half-marathon on Sunday (3 days ago) and had my PR of 1:59, beating my last one by 8 minutes!
- Chris A.
I’ve used MAP* for years and counted on it to help me consistently train and race with good results. The new BodyHealth PerfectAmino continues to give me that performance/recovery edge and it’s far more economical – a big plus.
- Cherie Gruenfeld - 12x World Ironman Champion
I started taking PerfectAmino 30 minutes before my morning shake and before long I started noticing that I would stay full longer than before. My blood sugar seemed to be more level and I felt great. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic a few years ago, so I have learned to be very in-tune with my body and I definitely noticed the change in my hunger and energy.
I have been taking PerfectAmino during my training sessions and am enjoying it. I take it before and after sessions and I do not notice any appreciable downgrade from MAP*.
I have now been using PerfectAmino for over 6 months. I have had great results in maintaining muscle mass (I'm 63) and I have noticed improved recovery following heavy weight sessions. I highly recommend PerfectAmino.
