Amino acids are the foundation of biology.
Muscle protein is made of amino acids. Most of your neurotransmitters are made from amino acids. Glutathione, the most important detox molecule in biology is made from amino acids. Enzymes that break down food and catalyze biochemical reactions are made from amino acids. Collagen is a combination of amino acids.
In short, your health depends on amino acids.
Therefore, the more you know about these critical building blocks of life, the greater health you can cultivate.
There are thousands of amino acids found in nature, but when it comes to biology living cells of everything from plants to elephants to humans only use a set of 20. And these 20 break down to 3 basic categories: Essential, Non-Essential, and Conditionally Essential.
From these 8 basic amino acids, the enzymes of your cells can synthesize all of the other 12 amino acids.
That means anything your body needs, every digestive enzyme, detox molecule, neurotransmitter, protein, or anything else can be reduced to these 8 basic ingredients.
Almost everything you need for optimal health comes down to amino acids.
This is the basis of Dr. Minkoff’s scientifically tested PerfectAmino formula, optimized for 99% utilization by your body.
However, because these can still be converted from the 8 basic essential amino acids, making sure to cover your 8 essentials first though attention to diet or with PerfectAmino is your best insurance policy for total health.
Amino acids are the foundation of your all biology, which also makes them the foundation of your health.
No matter where you are at, or what your goals are…
Whether you are an athlete looking for greater gains in your training, healing from disease, detoxing, preserving your health as you age, or just looking to optimize your health so you can be your best…

Your own metabolism is killing you.
The incomprehensible bazillions of biochemical reactions firing off every nanosecond in every one of your cells have consequences.
Because there is no free lunch.
Not even in biology. The truth is...
There is a master anabolic switch hidden deep inside your cells. It unlocks rapid muscle growth, stimulates tissue repair, activates your immune system, and generally makes us stronger and more capable.
It’s known as “mTOR.”
You may have heard of it in the bodybuilding and biohacking worlds.
However, this master anabolic switch is not as straightforward as some might like you to believe.
The equation is more complicated than mTOR = more muscle gain.

At our clinic, the LifeWorks Wellness Center, we have many clients—male and female—who have problems with low energy, depression, and insomnia. With these patients, we’ll measure neurotransmitter levels. The results tell the same story:
Symptomatic patients have neurotransmitter levels far below the optimal standards.
Even when patients have been given prescription psych medications by their doctor, their levels remain low because the drugs do not correct the underlying cause.
