What are Master Amino Acid Patterns MAP?
MAP + ideal amino acid pattern for protein supply
MAP (Master Amino Acid Pattern) is a patented dietary supplement that combines the essential amino acids in an optimal ratio.
Amino acids are not unfoundedly referred to as "building blocks of life" because they perform important functions in our body and are involved in many metabolic processes. Essential Amino Acids (EAA) – the basic building blocks of proteins – are of particular importance. They have to be fed through the diet, because we cannot produce them ourselves. Especially in stressful times or with high physical stress, a higher intake may be necessary. Here you can find out why they are becoming more and more of a focus as a dietary supplement.
What is MAP?
MAP is the abbreviation for "Master Amino Acid Pattern", which translates as "ideal human amino acid profile". It is a dietary supplement that contains the essential Essential Amino Acids in a perfectly coordinated ratio. They are contained in every protein we eat through the diet. Essential means that we are dependent on certain protein building blocks, as we cannot form them ourselves.
In contrast to other protein sources and dietary supplements, this supplement has a high bioavailability, which can be of great benefit especially for athletes.
What is MAP made of?
The supplement consists of the eight essential amino acids
which are in a perfect relationship for the body, so that we can use them for the development of the body's own proteins. The importance of protein is clear that our body consists primarily of water and proteins.
This makes it all the more important to supply the protein components regularly via the diet, as they
- for the building and maintenance of muscles and collagen,
- for regeneration,
- for the formation of new cells,
- for hormone formation,
- for performance,
- for the immune system,
- for metabolism
needed. As soon as they are missing, deficiency symptoms, such as a breakdown of the muscles, hair loss or brittle fingernails, can become noticeable.
What makes Master Amino Acid Pattern so special?
The special feature of the dietary supplement is the amino acid profile, as the proteins essential to the body are contained in an optimal ratio. They are extracted from legumes, which is why the supplement is purely plant-based and can even be used by vegans and vegetarians. Since the protein is present in a pure crystalline form, the body does not have to split it up in order to use it.
The amino acid combination has the advantage that during the metabolism there are no stressful metabolic products, which the body has to excrete via the kidneys and liver. In contrast, the digestion of protein-rich foods can contribute to the formation of waste products. In this case, the body splits off a nitrogenous amino group, which in turn can lead to the formation of ammonia and urea.
Although the kidneys are able to filter the urea out of the blood and excrete it through the urine, this transformation process involves a high effort and a lot of energy. In addition, the liver also consumes the body's own bicarbonate to convert ammonia into urea, which in turn can help the acid-base balance shift to the acidic area.
For this reason, it may be useful for the body to supply an amino acid complex that can be almost completely converted into the body's own protein and does not cause nitrogen degradation. The MAP discoverer is Professor Dr. Luca Moretti, who put the essential protein building blocks in a perfect ratio to improve absorption. The amino acid pattern recommended by Luca Moretti is
- 19.6% from leucine,
- 16.6% from Valine,
- 14.8% from isoleucine,
- 14.3% from lysine,
- 12.9% from phenylalanine,
- 11.1% from threonine,
- 7% from methionine,
- 3.7% from Tryptophan.
Benefits of Master Amino Acid Pattern
Unlike conventional foods, 99 percent of our Platinum Health MAP amino acid blend can be used to build the body's own protein. It is readily available, easily digestible, vegan and does not require fat, calories and additives.
Compared to protein-rich foods, nitrogen waste is only one percent, while soy or egg white stake about 82 percent produce nitrogen. Thus, the amino acid complex can be a valuable substitute for food proteins.
Who is the amino acid complex suitable for?
The MAP amino acid mixture is especially suitable for people who have a higher protein requirement. These include:
- Pregnant and
- breastfeeding mothers,
protein demand increases with age. It can be easily covered by the diet, but, as you already know, waste products are produced, which in turn can have a negative impact on your health.
MAP amino acid can replace food proteins, even without nitrogen degradation. This allows you to easily increase your protein requirements without having to resort to protein shakes.
Protein shakes can be particularly problematic for people suffering from lactose intolerance. Animal foods can also have negative effects on our bodies as they are suspected of increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease. The amino acid complex can replace the food proteins in no time, which in turn can have a positive effect on health.
Master Amino Acid Pattern for Athletes
The dietary supplement is particularly suitable for active people who have a higher protein requirement. Few presses are already sufficient for athletes to increase the daily protein requirement. The amount of usable protein, which is contained in ten pressings, for example, corresponds to about one large portion of meat, whereby the dietary supplement does not bring any fat or calories.
This can be of great benefit to athletes as they may be allergic to conventional dietary supplements, such as protein shakes made from casein, whey protein or soy protein. Due to the optimal bioavailability, MAP amino acid mixture can be
- for better muscle building,
- for muscle maintenance and protection against catabolic (degrading) processes,
- to optimize muscle strength,
- to improve muscle endurance,
- for regeneration
Contribute. The supplement can be effective even with a diet, as the feeling of hunger is reduced by taking it.
What do customers say?
Many customers have rated the amino acid complex positively and feel much better since ingestion. They generally have more energy and have been able to improve their physical and mental performance.
Athletes in particular report that their athletic performance has improved by taking the amino acid complex. Thus, the dietary supplement should have positive effects on muscle building, whereby the muscles feel firmer and more plumper and can also regenerate better during the resting phase. The complex should also have a positive effect on strength performance and/or endurance, which in turn can lead to progress in training.
What tips are there for taking?
Basically, you can take between 5 to 10 presses daily, whereby beginners should start with a low dosage and then slowly increase them. An initial dosage of 5 presses daily is ideal, preferably 30 minutes before a meal.
If you have been taking the amino acid complex for a little longer, you can increase the dosage to 10 presses daily. This is especially true for athletes who want to use the dietary supplement for the improvement of muscle building, regeneration, strength or endurance. Here it is recommended to take 5 presses about 30 minutes before the workout, while the second half is consumed after the workout (preferably just before a meal). There should be a distance of about three hours between intake.
It is not really so difficult to meet the daily protein requirements due to the abundance of protein-rich foods. Conventional protein-rich foods, however, have the disadvantage that harmful nitrogen compounds form during digestion, which in turn can have a negative effect on the body.
With the MAP amino acid mixture, this no longer happens, as the amino acid compound can be converted into muscle protein even without the formation of nitrogen compounds, since the ratio of the individual protein building blocks is perfectly matched to each other.
