500 mg 500 caps pure branched chain amino acids (Sci-Fit) $22.50Sci Fit's Whey Amino 1000 is the premiere amino acid formula enhanced with the amino acid L-Carnitine. Sci Fit's Whey Amino 1000 is comprised of most of the essential and non-essential amino acids necessary for proper muscle function and repair. The amino acids in Sci Fit's Whey Amino 1000 are derived from whey protein concentrate and ion-exchange whey, two of the most potent sources of bio-available protein in existence. Amino Acids in muscle cells can be depleted by even moderate activity, making proper amino acid supplementation essential for proper muscle function.
Sci Fit's Whey Amino 1000 comes enhanced with a potent dose of L-Carnitine:
There are two major functions of L-Carnitine. All tissues except the brain use long-chain fatty acids for bioenergy production. In cardiac and skeletal muscle a major contribution of bioenergy comes from beta-oxidation of long chain fatty acids. Long chain fatty acids require L-Carnitine to transport them across the inner membranes of the mitochondria (your body's energy factories), wherein their metabolism produces bioenergy. Following the delivery of the long-chain fatty acids into other mitochondria, L-Carnitine, either by itself or esterfied to an acyl group, recrosses the mitochondrial membrane to allow for continual use in this shuttle process.
Another function of L-Carnitine is to remove short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids from the mitochondria in order to maintain coenzyme A levels in these organelles. These fatty acids accumulate as a result of normal and abnormal metabolism. This mechanism prevents the build-up in the mitochondria of short-chain and medium chain fatty acids that may interfere with the bioenergy-producing process vital to normal cell function.1
L-Carnitine is an important, some would say essential, amino acid to transport system of fatty acids that provide fuel to the mitochondria, so that they can produce and maintain proper levels of "bioenergy".
Sci Fit's Whey Amino 1000 is available in a 250 capsule and an economy 500 capsule size.

L-Glutamine 1000 grams (Sci-Fit) $55.00Sci Fit L-Glutamine Powder is a protein amino acid found in proteins of all life forms. L-Glutamine is considered an conditionally essential amino acid, meaning that the body produces enough under normal circumstances. However, when undergoing extreme metabolic stress the body can become L-Glutamine deficient, which can cause immunosuppresion and skeletal muscle catabolism.1
Supplemental L-Glutamine has numerous positive effects on the body under such circumstances:2
L-Glutamine may have a anticatabolic/anabolic (protects/builds) effect on skeletal muscle tissue.
L-Glutamine may be an immunomodulatory substance. It does so by by protecting the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract and by supporting the proliferation of Lymphocytes.
L-Glutamine may have antioxidant activity.
Sci Fit L-Glutamine Powder is available in 300gm, 600gm, 1000gm powder sizes. It is also available in 1000mg 120 capsule and 240 capsule sizes.

L-Arginine 100 caps 500 mg (Sci-Fit) $9.50Sci Fit's L-Arginine is a protein amino acid present in the proteins of all life forms. It is classified as conditionally essential amino acid, which means the body manufactures suffcient L-Arginine in most cases. However, in young children, those with certain genetic disorders and some stress conditions such as trauma, burns or sepsis, L-Arginine becomes an essential amino acid. Under these conditions proper dietary intake of L-Arginine becomes important.1
Supplemental L-Arginine may have anti-therogenic, antioxidant, immunomodulatory and wound healing actions. Most of L-Arginine's positive effects are due to its role as a precursor to the production of Nitric Oxide (NO). NO is produced in all the tissues of the body and is essential to the proper function of the cardiovascular system, immune system and nervous system. L-Arginine shows promise in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease (aetherosclerosis, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and angina pectoris), some forms of male infertility (erectile dysfuntion) and some kidney disorders. Furthermore, it has been shown to be helpful in accelerating wound healing under some circumstances. Supplemental, L-arginine has also been shown to induce the release of growth hormone and prolactin.2
