AminoActiv® is based on common and natural molecules including several amino acids that make up Ethyl-(alpha-guanido-methyl)ethanoate or “Alpha-GEE”. These amino acids do not individually have anti-inflammatory properties but, when synthesized in our Patent-Protected processes, they together form a compound that expresses the same dose-related anti-inflammation effects as Ieading non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen and others.
The main difference is that AminoActiv accomplishes pain relief without negative side effects such as stomach ulceration (gastro-intestinal bleeding) or toxicity to the kidneys or liver. Also, AminoActiv will not slow down protein synthesis, inhibit COX pathways, or interfere with tenocyte functions as NSAIDs do — all are key to muscle, bone, tendon, and ligament repair. AminoActiv additionally acts to prevent inflammation from reactive oxygen species (ROS) which cause detrimental effects on tissue.
Safety, toxicity, and necropsy studies were performed at a major university medical center using Alpha-GEE and showed no negative side effects or contraindications even when dosed at super-therapeutic levels (30x recommended dosage). This data was submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and based on this data showing no apparent toxicity, the FDA allowed the compound to be offered to the OTC (over-the-counter) market and to date, millions of doses have been taken with no reported adverse events.
With its potent, but safe blend of Alpha-GEE and other homeopathic pain and inflammation extracts*, AminoActiv has proven to be an effective, healthy, and natural alternative to many prescription and OTC pain-relieving drugs.
* Foeniculum vulgare extract is derived from the umbelliferous herb which belongs to the Apiaceae family. Bromeliaceae is an extract from the Ananas comosus flowering monocot plant. AminoActiv® is a homeopathic analgesic.
