PRO 3 AMINO
Pro 3 Amino contains three of the essential amino acids Lysine, Methionine & Threonine. Essential amino acids must be obtained through the diet in adequate quantities to meet the body’s needs because these cannot be synthesized by the body in sufficient quantities. More common than inadequate protein intake is shortage of key essential amino acids; the building blocks of protein. Lysine, Methionine and Threonine are also limiting amino acids, meaning that if they are not present in adequate amounts, the body is limited in its ability to make protein.
Lysine: Lysine is the first limiting amino acid. Lysine is found in a wide variety of tissues, hormones, and cells throughout the body. Myosin and other muscle proteins contain large amounts of lysine. Proteins that require lysine include the collagens and elastins that make up bone matrix, tendons, skin, and articular cartilage. Keratin protein in hoof and hair also requires lysine. Inadequate intake of protein or required amino acids by horses may lead to reduced feed intake, body tissue loss, poor coat, and hoof growth. It can also contribute to decreased growth and development in young animals.
Methionine: Methionine serves many key functions in the body, including support for connective tissue, liver function and detoxification, and strong hoof tissue. Methionine is needed for the production of cystine. Cystine is necessary to form the healthy “cross links” of collagen that add strength and elasticity, needed for healthy hoof, skin, hair, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Methionine belongs to a group of compounds called lipotropics which help the liver to process fat in the body and so supports liver function. Methionine and cystine are naturally occurring “sulphur containing” amino acids. Sulphur is a key element and vital to life. Without an adequate intake of sulphur, the body will not be able to make and utilise a number of antioxidant nutrients. Methionine combines with Lysine to form Carnitine, a carrier needed for the muscle to burn fat.
Threonine: Threonine promotes overall growth and helps keep connective tissues and muscles throughout the body strong and elastic, including the heart, where it is found in significant amounts. Threonine also helps inhibit fat accumulation in the liver, supports a healthy central nervous, and immune system function by aiding in the production of antibodies and is necessary for GI tract health. Threonine is needed to create glycine and serine, two amino acids that are necessary for the production of collagen, elastin, and muscle tissue. It is also needed to build strong bones & tooth enamel and to aid wound healing and recovery from injury.
