Amino Acids for weight management, brain power, and adrenal health.

Entrepreneurs Guap is a unique sprouted Almond Butter in that is infused with amino acids that help polish the physical body. 
We designed this particular blend for go-getters following a plant-based diet that favors high-quality fats as a source of brain fuel and physical nourishment. Although we don't focus too heavily on grams of protein here at Laka Living, we surely take note of the variety and amount of amino acids we are getting into our meals. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein - which is why the protein discussion is obsolete when accusing plant-based eaters of a deficiency. Protein deficiency just doesn't exist, as long as you are eating food....calories....nutrients in adequate amounts. 
Starting a business requires FUEL. Amino acids are the perfect ally in daily dosing of clean plant-based fuel that will act as the New York Ribeye for your brain, body, and creative spirit.

Ever wonder why we chose L-Glutamine, L-Tyrosine, and L-Theanine to spike our Entrepreneurs Guap? 
1. L-Glutamine has been found to help support weight loss, burn fat, and build muscle. New research is showing the effects of L-Glutamine on digestive and brain health as well as presenting it as a critical ally in boosting athletic performance. 
2. Can't sleep at night while your never ending to-do lists take their second wind the second your head hits the pillow? L-Theanine is an amino acid that helps release neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, and GABA into the brain - clearing up oxidative stress that may manifest as brain fog during the day and prevent you from slipping into a necessary* deep slumber at night. 
For entrepreneurs, sleep is your best friend. If you can't sleep, the lymphatic system in your brain never has it's opportunity to detox the day's stresses and you will wake up the next morning with yesterday's cosmic clutter. 
3. L-Tyrosine helps to increase levels of neurotransmitters Epinephrine, Norepinephrine, and Dopamine in the brain that help to simulate alertness and a toned focus in the brain. Can't seem to get your adrenal health restored? L-Tyrosine is also responsible for making the hormones necessary for proper pituitary, adrenal, and thyroid gland functioning.
Super-Tyrosine can be found in food sources such as turkey, almonds, peanuts, avocado, and yogurt - but supplementation allows this amino acid to cross the blood-brain barrier much quicker.
