From Dr. Minkoff: In light of the fact that Iâ€™ve been recommending MAP* for many years now, Iâ€™ve recently been asked why I have developed PerfectAmino as an effective alternative to MAP*. The primary reason is that I wanted to make this important supplement more affordable, especially for those individuals who require higher than the minimum recommended dose. Iâ€™m thrilled to be able to now offer PerfectAmino â€“ same amino acid content and body utilization as MAP*, with verified purity, quality and affordable value!
In my medical practice I routinely encounter patients who are severely deficient in one or more essential amino acids, and this deficiency may be preventing them from healing. Also, as a participant in triathlons and other sports racing events, I encounter athletes of various levels who maintain relatively intense training regimens. These individuals often require higher doses (as compared to the minimum recommended five tablets) of an amino acid supplement like MAP* or PerfectAmino to provide their bodies adequate building blocks for protein synthesis â€“ critical for healing from disease, muscle recovery and stamina, etc. PerfectAmino represents an affordable and equally effective option to MAP*.
I have gone to great lengths to ensure that PerfectAmino has been produced and tested in a manner that assures its quality, purity, and effectiveness. PerfectAmino is manufactured in a cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility, and the end product has been laboratory tested for product consistency and purity. This testing includes testing for heavy metals content far beyond that required by FDA regulations. I now use PerfectAmino myself and experience the same benefits I did from MAP*.
What's Inside PerfectAminoâ„¢
PerfectAmino ingredients contain the eight essential amino acids:
Tryptophan encourages the release of serotonin and melatonin.
Lysine deficiency can result in a deficiency in niacin (Vitamin B). It is beneficial in treating and preventing herpes.
Methionine supplies sulphur and other compounds required by the body for normal metabolism and growth.
Valine is needed for muscle metabolism, tissue repair, and for the maintenance of proper nitrogen balance in the body.
Leucine stimulates muscle protein synthesis and may be the major fuel involved in anabolic (tissue building) reactions.
Isoleucine is important for blood sugar regulation, muscle development and repair and energy regulation.
Threonine is important for antibody production. It can be converted into glycine and serine.
Phenylalanine stimulates certain hormones including adrenaline and noradrenaline, which are activating substances in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
PerfectAmino ingredients contain no fat, sodium, sugar, yeast, gluten, soy, corn, wheat, rice, GMO, preservatives, excipients, dairy or animal products. (Store in a cool, dry place.)â€

It is best to take PerfectAmino every day, no matter what. If you happen to take it at the wrong time or with other proteins or fats, that is okay, and is far better than not taking it at all.
Quantity per serving depends on gender and weight. Please see the infographic below for recommendations on how many tablets to take based on your weight.
