Combat Aging with Optimal Muscle Synthesis


Combat the effects of aging with our patented amino acids powder drink mixes and capsules!


Aging is associated with a steady decline in muscle mass and performance. As you get older, you begin to notice your muscle strength isn’t what it used to be, and you become tired more easily. This results in diminishing endurance, decreasing mobility, and generally not feeling as fit as you once did. Age-related muscle mass and strength loss are known as sarcopenia. This deterioration in muscle mass and performance as you age is largely due to your body’s decline in muscle protein synthesis.

Muscle protein synthesis or creation is one of the most important and fundamental biological functions your body performs. Proteins are chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks for human tissue and therefore your entire body. Proteins also have many critical functions throughout the body, including acting as:

  • Enzymes 
  • Antibodies
  • Hormones
  • Messengers
  • Tissue structure
  • Transport molecules

Your body needs well-functioning muscle synthesis to ensure thousands of biological interactions are operating correctly. Muscle synthesis relies on available amino acids. There are 20 types of amino acids, which can be categorized into three types:

  • Essential amino acids– Your body needs these nine amino acids to survive. Your body cannot synthesize these, so they must be consumed. 
  • Semi-essential amino acids – Your body can produce these six amino acids under certain stress-related conditions. 
  • Non-essential amino acids– These are 11 amino acids your body is capable of creating. 

To enhance muscle synthesis, you need a fully-balanced blend of essential amino acids. In particular, your body achieves the best protein synthesis when there are free essential amino acids in the blood. Interestingly, research indicates semi-essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids are not necessary for optimal muscle protein synthesis.

The body is capable of adapting to changes in protein intake. However, it always needs a constant supply of the nine essential amino acids to maintain ideal muscle synthesis. 

Most protein powders offer incomplete amino acid profiles on top of unnecessary or deleterious additions, such as sugars and carbohydrates. And branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are simply an incomplete formula since they only consist of three of the nine essential amino acids – isoleucine, leucine, and valine. 

Research indicates the solution for optimal muscle protein synthesis for all people at every fitness level is a perfectly balanced essential amino acid complex, which is why Oh!mino®'s patented complex includes all nine balanced essential amino acids, including the BCAAs, with nutritional cofactors. We’ve also included all five fully balanced electrolytes for better delivery and increased absorption. Additionally, the electrolytes in Oh!mino® make this supplement an excellent product for ideal hydration.
