Balanced Amino Maintenance is a free-form amino acid formula that contains all the essential amino acids in ratios commonly found in nature. Because these amino acids are in their free form, they can be readily absorbed and utilized by the body. With these precursors, the body can make all other amino acids. Chromium niacinate and vitamin B-6 (in the form of pyridoxal 5’ phosphate) are included for optimal utilization. BAM® is an excellent adjunct for the support of normal energy and neuro-cognitive function. Slightly different from our amino acid base formula, BAM® contains tryptophan, alanine, and glutamine. BAM® is available in capsules, sticks and the new powder form.*

Description: BAM® Balanced Amino Maintenance is a free-form amino acid formula that contains all the essential amino acids – histidine, leucine, phenylalanine, lysine, valine, isoleucine, methionine, threonine, and tryptophan- and the conditionally essential arginine, and glutamine. Activated vitamin B-6 (P5P) is added to enhance amino acid metabolism.
Uses: The free-form amino acids in BAM® can be readily absorbed and utilized by the body. With these precursors, the body can synthesize all the other amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and are needed to create enzymes, hormones, antibodies, collagen, nerves and muscle tissue. Amino acids have wide-ranging metabolic functions, including:
- Promoting muscle growth and repair
- Neurotransmitter synthesis and neuronal development to support neuro-cognitive function and healthy moods
- Detoxification – amino acid conjugation is a major Phase II pathway to rid the body of toxins
- Blood sugar regulation through the glucose-alanine cycle and the synthesis of hormones involved in glucose metabolism. Chromium is also important for this function.
- Energy production- amino acids are broken down to form key components of the Krebs cycle to create cellular energy. The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)- valine, leucine and isoleucine- can be used directly by the muscles for energy.
Low amino acid levels can by caused by dietary insufficiency, poor digestion, malabsorption, or increased requirements caused by stress, exercise, or medical conditions. BAM® provides an effective way to increase the body’s amino acid stores.
Source Materials: All amino acids in BAM® are made by fermentation of corn or cane sugar except L-methionine which is synthetic. Pyridoxal 5 phosphate is synthetic. Chromium is a mined mineral and niacin is synthetic. Cellulose for capsules is derived from softwood tree pulp. All ingredients are vegan and non-GMO.
Allergens: According to information provided by our suppliers, these capsules are free of the eight major allergens as identified by the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA): Wheat (gluten), eggs, milk, soybeans, shellfish, fish, peanuts, tree nuts.
Recommendations: One to six (1-6) capsules daily, or as directed by a healthcare professional. Best taken between meals.
