Why some people start craving less food when taking PerfectAmino...
There is a hormone called Leptin many people don't know about. This is the hormone that is supposed to tell your brain when to stop eating or when to release another hormone, Ghrelin, that creates cravings to eat more.
Leptin is actually produced by fat cells. The more fat you have on your body, the more leptin is produced to be sent to the brain to tell it that enough food has been eaten.
It’s released every time you eat as there is always some fat creation no matter what. But, as it's produced by fat cells, and the more fat, the more leptin, it begs the question... why isn't it telling me to stop eating?
There is something called leptin resistance, similar to insulin resistance. This is where there is plenty of Leptin being produced, but the brain isn't seeing it. As the brain doesn't see it, it thinks it hasn't had enough food and so produces more cravings to eat.
This brings me to the point of this note: One of the major things that cause this leptin resistance is free fatty acids in the blood, specifically triglycerides (mainly fat from sugar). Their byproducts can get to the brain and "clog" the blood-brain barrier, preventing leptin from getting through to the leptin receptors there, and so causing the brain not to "see" the leptin.
And when the brain doesn’t “see” the Leptin, it thinks we’re starving and so creates more food cravings.
And one major thing that reverses leptin resistance... is proper protein intake. This makes sense, as it is very specific enzymes in the blood that break down these free fatty acids that clog the blood-brain barrier, and they are all made from amino acids - the building blocks of protein. Most people don't get enough protein. Either they just don't eat enough, or their digestive systems aren't breaking it down fully and so they aren't receiving it.
So, with many people, PerfectAmino gets their body what it needs to break down these fatty acids and is thus helping to reverse leptin resistance.

AMINO ACIDS – THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF PROTEIN
Many people know that protein is essential for optimum health, but most assume they are consuming enough from food. So why the need for an amino acid supplement? The simple answer is that – yes, you do get good quality from foods such as eggs, meat, fish, and nuts but much of the protein in food is not converted into body protein – it just makes waste that the body has to get rid of plus extra calories.
Almost everyone is protein deficient without realizing it – it plays out as a nagging injury that won’t heal in the athlete, or brittle bones in the menopausal women, or constant colds in the child. Protein deficiency is very often something you are aware of, but you just can’t identify and neither does your doctor. Not getting enough protein may mean low hormones, or a low immune system and risk of disease or cancer. So what’s the solution? PerfectAmino is an amino acid supplement that is 99% utilized by the body to make protein. No other form of protein comes close!
PerfectAmino® Nothing else is utilized as well to make protein.
What’s the Difference Between Protein Sources?
Quality, quality, and quality.
The chart illustrates the Amino Acid Utilization (AAU™) that PerfectAmino offers, dramatically greater than dietary protein sources.
At the low end of the spectrum are branched-chain amino acids – only 1% of their content is utilized by the body with 99% resulting in waste that your body must then process and eliminate.
Whey and soy proteins – only 18% or less of their content is utilized by the body with 83% leaving as waste.
Food like meat, fish, and poultry fare a bit better with 32% being absorbed and 68% being wasted.
Eggs are the winners in the food stakes with 48% being utilized and 52% converted to waste.
Now compare those numbers to PerfectAmino – a massive 99% is put to work by the body, with only 1% leaving as waste. Not only that, but PerfectAmino is absorbed by the body within 23 minutes! And there is only 0.4 of a calorie per tablet.
