AHK (Tripeptide-3) 200mg (Topical)
1. AHK Tripeptide Steroid
The tripeptides are a group of three amino acid chains linked together. These peptides have been shown to increase protein synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown. The tripeptide AHK (L-alanyl-L-histidinlyl-L-lysine) has been shown to improve the immune system and increase the production of testosterone.
Testosterone is a hormone produced by the testes and adrenal glands. It stimulates the body’s sex drive and helps maintain male sexual characteristics. In women, it increases libido and breast size. Testosterone levels naturally decrease after puberty, but can be increased with exercise and diet.
This tripeptide is similar to AHK except it contains N-methyl-L-tyrosine instead of lysine. This is a non-essential amino acid that is converted to tyrosine in the body. Tyrosine is a precursor to dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and serotonin. Dopamine is involved in the regulation of mood and motivation. Norepinephrine is responsible for alertness and wakefulness. Epinephrine is associated with anxiety and fear. Serotonin is associated with sleep and appetite.
L-alanine is a non-essential branched chain amino acid that is often used as a dietary supplement. It is commonly taken for its anti-inflammatory effects. It is also used to treat depression and fatigue.
L-arginine is an amino acid that is derived from food sources. It is a precursor to nitric oxide, which is a chemical messenger in the body. Nitric oxide relaxes blood vessels, lowers blood pressure, and enhances circulation. It may also help prevent heart disease and stroke.
6. L-Aspartic Acid
L-aspartic acid is an acidic amino acid that occurs naturally in many foods. It is a precursor for glutamic acid, which is an excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. Glutamic acid is also found in MSG.
L-cysteine is a sulfur containing amino acid that is abundant in meat. It is a precursor of glutathione, which is a major antioxidant in the body.
