Amino acids are organic compounds that are essential for our body to work properly. Their chemical structure is characterized by the presence of an amino group (-NH2), a carboxyl group (-COOH) and a lateral chain (-R) that varies from amino acid to amino acid. This is precisely the part that gives the different characteristics to each of them as well as the specific functions that they will perform. Amino acids are absorbed in the intestines and then used where necessary. Although they are known mainly for their role in protein synthesis, only 20 of them take part in it. In reality, they are numerous and perform various functions, which are vital for the body to work correctly. The synthesis of hormones, support for the immune system, ability to ensure the correct supply of oxygen to the muscle system and the adjustment of the sleep-wake cycle, are some of these.

Amino acids are divided into:

-       Essential amino acids: our body cannot produce them and it is therefore necessary to introduce them with the diet or supplement them.

-       Semi-essential amino acids: these are all the amino acids that our body is able to synthesize independently, if it is supplied with quantities of amino acids exceeding normal requirements;

-       Non-essential amino acids: they are normally produced by our body.

Essential amino acids are vital to ensure correct protein synthesis. These are:

  1. Phenylalanine

  2. Leucine

  3. Isoleucine

  4. Valine

  5. Lysine

  6. Methionine

  7. Threonine

  8. Tryptophan


  1. PHENYLALANINE: it can inhibit the synthesis of melanin, responsible for hair, iris and skin pigmentation, and serotonin.

  2. ISOLEUCINE: It is one of the 3 branched amino acids (BCAAs). It is used as an energy source in periods of prolonged fasting, thanks to its ability to produce ketone bodies. In fact, isoleucine is a (so-called) ketogenic amino acid, because, degrading, it produces acetoacetic acid, a ketone body used by our brain in times of famine. It also stimulates insulin production and is useful in cases of type I diabetes or in individuals who need to store more glycogen in their muscles.

  3. LEUCINE: The main representative of branched amino acids (BCAAs). It can stimulate protein synthesis by itself, which is useful for building muscle tissue and counteracting its loss, a situation known as catabolism.

  4. VALINE: the third of all branched amino acids. Its high bioavailability makes it particularly useful in sports of long duration and high intensity, in prolonged efforts and in periods of fasting.

  5. LYSINE: is involved in the production of L-carnitine, which allows the muscles to use fatty acids as an energy source. It promotes the formation of antibodies, hormones (GH) and enzymes. It also has an important action on the musculo-skeletal system, supporting the fixing of calcium in the bones and contributing to the formation of collagen.

  6. METHIONINE: This amino acid is also involved in the formation of L-carnitine, in addition to cysteine, lecithin and phosphatidylcholine.  It is used as a support for the urinary apparatus for its ability to acidify urine, while at liver level it has the function of counteracting liver steatosis.

  7. THREONINE: is a panacea for tendons, ligaments and joints in general. It participates in the regeneration of collagen and elastin, excellent for post-traumatic recovery, prevention and maintenance. In addition, it is involved in the formation of vitamin B12 and contributes to the reduction of LDL cholesterol levels in the blood.

  8. TRYPTOPHAN: one of the best known amino acids for its ability to produce serotonin. In fact, tryptophan is the precursor of this neurotransmitter commonly linked to emotional well-being. As it is also a precursor to melatonin, it is also associated with night rest.

MPS+ CPR enriches and makes unique its formulation with the addition of Sustamine®, a dipeptide formed by L-glutamine and L-alanine, characterized by the maximum bioavailability of glutamine that it offers.  Its main features:


Sustamine® is the result of a patented fermentation process that creates a highly stable product, and a dipeptide that is more bioavailable than L-Glutammine alone. A dipeptide is a bonded chain of two amino acids, in this case L-Glutamine and L-Alanine. But why should we use a dipeptide?

-       they are absorbed more efficiently than proteins;

-       they don’t need additional energy to break down bulky protein molecules;

-       they increase amino acid transport into cells for a faster recovery;

-       they supply two amino acids for the energy cost of one;

-       they might be more stable and effective than a single amino acid.

Research proves that Sustamine® is more stable than L-Glutammine alone.

Sustamine® vs L-Glutammine

-       improved bioavailability and absorption;


-       improved hydration over water alone: research supports that rehydration with Sustamine® maintains visual reaction time to a greater extent than water alone;

-       increased L-Glutammine levels: over taking LGlutammine alone and helps maintain L-Glutamine balance during rigorous exercise;

-       increased product stability and quality: research indicates that combining L-Glutamine with another amino acid is more stable and less subject to degradation at high temperatures than L-Glutamine alone. This prolongs shel life and enhances quality.

Another component of MPS+ CPR is zinc, a mineral responsible for about 300 enzymatic processes in our body. In addition to its contribution to the maintenance of healthy bones, zinc can stimulate the growth hormone (GH) and testosterone, useful for athletes to increase muscle mass. Its involvement in numerous reactions, makes it active in countering the process of cellular ageing, in the healing of ulcers and wounds and in maintaining body weight. In fact, zinc is also involved in the regulation of insulin, closely related to weight changes. Finally, MPS+ CPR contains vitamins B1, B6 and B12 to support fatigue reduction and energy metabolism.

Thanks to all its components, MPS+ CPR, is able to offer the essential amino acids, high bioavailability glutamine, zinc and B vitamins for a prompt and effective recovery and proper muscle maintenance.
