    How many mg of aminoacids are found in one gram of protein??

    I was considering on purchasing the Amino Fuel Liquid which contains 15 grams of amino acids per serving. According to the instructions, you have to take 3 servings a day, which would equal 45 grams of amino acids a day.

    How does this compare to taking protein from regular food?

    Is it the same to take 45 grams of amino acids to 45 grams of regular protein?

    THanks!

    amino acids = protein ... well chains of amino acids.
    I think you should just get some regular protein powder.
    I rape back.
    If you were half as good as me you'd be close to perfection.

    If protein= amino acids, why does nobody in this forum talk about amino acids?

    And please, someone answer my question on my previous post.

    I wouldn't worry about amino acid fuel. Yes prtoein has a lot of aminos that u would need. If anything buy BCAA's, those are tons better than amino fuel. There are what u call non essential and essential aminos. amino i made up of both. BCAA's are three essential amino's. leucine, isoleucine, and valine this aminos play a direct link to protein synthesis and are the only ones that can be used as fuel.
    The desire to attain "perfection" is a mental poison. Perfection is a fictitious concept, there is only improvement. Therein lies the challenge, therein lies the fun.

    Obsession is the word the lazy use to describe the DEDICATED

    Commitment isn't the time you spend, It's the line you cross.
