If you’re reading this, you are probably someone who strives to be the best possible version of yourself every day. You work out regularly and try to get enough sleep. You may use vitamin supplements because you know how difficult it is to get all the nutrition you need through diet alone. But that may not be enough at some point; that’s when a GAC Formula Injection can get the results you are looking for.
Hectic days and the demands of work and family often don’t leave enough time or energy to prepare healthy meals. Despite our sincere efforts, life has a way of throwing us off our game. Everyday stressors and illness deplete the body’s store of vital amino acids. A GAC Formula Injection may help correct the imbalance, support your immune system, and promote a healthy weight.
You are ready and willing to do the work. Eating right and exercising are the foundation, but ensuring your body has the nutritional support it needs is key to achieving optimal wellness. In conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, a GAC Formula Injection could up your fitness to the next level.
That depends. Ask yourself the following questions. If the answer to any is an enthusiastic “Yes!” then a GAC Formula Injection might be in your future.
Help your body get to where you want it to be using all the tools at your disposal. By increasing your intake of select amino acids, you address many common issues that tend to derail our attempts to get healthy.
You may never have heard of amino acids before, but your body is keenly aware of their significance. Amino acids are known as the “building blocks of life.” They combine to make proteins in the body that bear on every internal system. Immunity, digestion, hormone regulation, fluid balance, growth, and pH levels are all dependent upon proteins to achieve “homeostasis” – a state of stability between bodily processes that supports life.
There are 20 different types of amino acids in the body, and each one falls into one of three categories. Nine that come strictly from food are considered “essential” because we cannot live without them. The other two are considered “nonessential” or “conditionally essential.” Your body makes nonessential amino acids on its own as needed. Conditionally essential amino acids get depleted through illness and stress, at which point they become “essential;” this is when supplementation becomes indispensable—and where the GAC Formula Injection comes in.
A blend of three conditionally essential amino acids, The GAC Formula Injection is comprised of glutamine, arginine, and carnitine. Each contributes a wealth of benefits. Here are the ABC’s of GAC:
Glutamine: Like gas in an engine, glutamine infuses every cell in the body with energy. Intestinal health and immunity depend on it. It promotes the development of lean muscle and improves endurance. Because glutamine supports so many bodily functions, it quickly becomes depleted during times of stress or illness, making supplementation advisable during these periods. The need for glutamine can increase by more than 50 percent when the body is under stress (Cruzat et al., 2018). Glutamine may also help with the recovery of muscle strength and reduce muscle soreness after exercise (NIH, 2019).
Arginine: Most of us are aware that run-away inflammation underpins many diseases. You may not know that arginine has significant anti-inflammatory effects, particularly on cardiac, kidney, and intestinal systems. It converts into nitric oxide in the body, causing blood vessels to relax and circulation to improve. As a result, cardiovascular disease, migraines, erectile dysfunction, and pain may all be mitigated. Perhaps most impressive of all (depending on your health goals), arginine can turn your body into a fat-burning machine by removing metabolic waste products which can lead to fatigue, and serving as a precursor for the synthesis of creatine, which supplies muscles with energy for short-term bursts of activity (NIH, 2019)!
Carnitine: Weekend warriors, take note: you’ve found a friend in carnitine! Another energizing amino, carnitine, also facilitates efficient fat-burning, improves endurance, and eases sore muscles after exercise (Fielding et al., 2018). It may even have a beneficial effect on memory and mood. Be aware, however, that intense exercise regimens can deplete carnitine levels, once again making supplementation a good idea.
Now comes the exciting part. Arginine may trigger the brain to release human growth hormone (HGH) – a natural anti-aging chemical. HGH makes your skin appear more youthful and helps your body repair damaged tissue. Its activation kicks metabolism into high gear, helps preserve and grow muscle, and makes the body burn fat more efficiently – a win for vitality and weight loss (NIH, 2019)!
To boil it all of this information down into the basics, here’s a list of the top 10 benefits you can expect from a GAC Formula Injection:
The power of amino acids is impressive. You can liken it to a fuel-injected engine – a GAC Formula Injection super-charges the efficiency of your current health regimen. A feeling of invigoration, strength, and youthfulness will bolster you. Weight loss and fitness goals can be achieved faster. The GAC Formula Injection is an invaluable aid along your path to optimal health and wellness.
Struggling to get out of bed to make your morning workout? Continually coming down with one cold after another? Stress can make even the most health-conscious among us wind up feeling used up. And when that happens, your quality of life is bound to suffer. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, a deficiency in amino acids might be responsible.
We discipline ourselves because good health is worth the effort; however, a sense of defeat creeps in when we start to feel sluggish, unmotivated, sick, and just generally ‘off’ without understanding why. Now you know a lack of amino acids could underlie your problems — and the GAC Formula Injection can help.
Yes, exercise stresses the body. No one’s going to argue its benefits; however, intensive, regular workouts will inevitably cause amino acid levels to decrease. Your body uses up its store to provide you with energy, repair your muscles, and fight off ever-present germs.
Another cause of depletion is poor diet. As explained earlier, amino acids combine in the body to form proteins. Eating enough protein is a must for proper body and brain functioning. If you are trying to lose weight, you are probably consuming fewer calories. At the same time, you are burning more calories through vigorous workouts, creating a need for more protein. Insufficient protein in the diet can ultimately lead to a deficiency in amino acids.
A final point to consider: advancing age. Getting older presents many challenges, not least of which is declining amino acid levels. Most of us recognize the familiar complaints: feeling tired, weaker, slower. Skeletal muscles begin to lose mass, a condition known as sarcopenia, which can impair motor skills, affecting walking. Thinking may become less sharp, memory a bit sketchy, and sleep less restorative. These difficulties can indicate an amino acid deficiency. Aging creates a heightened need for proper nutrition and exercise – but how do we accomplish this when plagued by low energy and, in turn, low motivation?
A GAC Formula Injection can quickly invigorate you with energy. Over time, it helps preserve and promote muscle development while increasing endurance and metabolism. When we start to experience positive results from our efforts, it becomes easier to live a healthy lifestyle and maintain a healthy weight. The GAC Formula Injection effectively addresses many of the deficiency symptoms that result from stress or illness. And even if you are not deficient, supplementation may enhance your efforts at living a healthy, vital, and active life.
Think bioavailability and potency. Pills and tablets can be notoriously difficult for the body to absorb. They have to go through the digestion process, which complicates matters. Gut health and stomach acid can adversely impact the bioavailability of nutrients, as can what you’ve eaten and when.
Injections solve the issue by bypassing digestion completely, delivering nutrition directly into muscle tissue and then the bloodstream, allowing for 100% complete absorption.
The other problem with pill form is its stability on a shelf. How long has it been since manufacture to the time you’ve ingested it? What about the influence of heat, moisture, and other environmental factors during storage and shipping? Potency can be compromised as a result.
Unlike mass-produced commercial supplements, the GAC Formula Injection is manufactured in-house at a compounding pharmacy. If you choose a reputable compounding pharmacy that uses best practices for purity and safety in its manufacturing processes, you can trust the potency of your supplement.
Since glutamine, arginine, and carnitine are all organic compounds that exist naturally in the body, there is little risk involved with supplementation. They are considered safe in larger dosages. Of course, you should always consult with a licensed physician before beginning any vitamin or supplement regimen. Invigor Medical is a full-service telemedicine clinic staffed with licensed health professionals to help you determine whether GAC injections are a great choice for you.
Some patients have reported minor side effects to the GAC Formula Injection ingredients, including mild headaches, bloating, or nausea. High dose amino acids can also put a strain on the kidneys and cause constipation. If you experience any unexpected side effects or have symptoms of an allergic reaction after taking an injection, do not hesitate to immediately call for medical help.
Where you choose to fill your prescription is an important detail. Not all compounding pharmacies are created equal. Make sure you order from a reputable compounding pharmacy that meets or exceeds the highest safety standards set by state licensing boards and the federal government. If you choose Invigor Medical, you can be sure your formulation consists of sterile, pure ingredients in the correct dosage.
In the olden days, pharmacies were called “apothecaries” where medicines were custom-made for each patient. The apothecary (pharmacist) would combine the chemicals personally, on-the-spot, to fill a given prescription. Today’s retail pharmacies don’t do that. They order brand-name or generic drugs from pharmaceutical companies that mass-produce them in vast quantities. Compounding pharmacies, on the other hand, are closer to the apothecaries of yesteryear. They manufacture medications in-house, which allows for the customization of ingredients or dosages. They also produce medicines and supplements in bulk that are not commercially available, such as the GAC Formula Injection.
Compounding pharmacies are real pharmacies, regulated by federal and state agencies. The FDA established rigorous safety and quality standards for compounding pharmacies, which fall under 503A or 503B guidelines. If your pharmacy is designated 503A, it compounds for individuals only; a 503B designation allows a compounding pharmacy to prepare formulations in bulk for individuals, health systems, or doctor offices.
So, you’ve decided to take the plunge and help your body reach its full potential – what’s next? The first step is to obtain a prescription for a GAC Formula Injection from a licensed health care provider either locally or online using a telemedicine clinic such as at Invigor Medical. We use Olympia Compounding Pharmacy which is a 503B FDA-approved outsourcing facility, required to maintain “current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) standards” as set forth by the federal government. Olympia is one of only a handful of compounding pharmacies in the US to be awarded 503B designation.
