AIM’s Quality Assurance Department recently tested to see which free (unbound) amino acids are in BarleyLife. Mind you, this test did not look for the amino acids that are bound to the plant matter but, instead, only examined the unbound amino acids.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. The body produces some amino acids on its own, but there are quite a few like lysine, leucine and phenylalaline that must come from dietary sources. Athletes often take amino acids for performance boosts and exercise recovery, but amino acids are also a healthy part of a balanced diet and support overall health in surprising ways. Here is a list of amino acids that BarleyLife provides.
