Amino acids are the components of proteins, and the ratios in which they occur are specific to different tissue types of organisms; the proteins, themselves, are involved in all aspects of cellular processes. Amino acids play a number of essential direct and indirect roles in all biological processes, from regulating protein utilization, to indirectly influencing neurological functioning, to the formation of pigments that give organisms their coloration, and so on; in short, they are crucial to the overall existence of all living organisms. Absence of various amino acids in the diet of an organism can have a negative impact by limiting, or “throttling”, a number of biological processes; this may lead to illness or death, and is obviously to be avoided. Many organisms are not able to biochemically create certain amino acids from their more basic components, requiring that the organism obtain these amino acids from their food. The advantage that MaxAmino offers aquarium hobbyists is that it is precisely formulated to provide the twenty standard amino acids in the exact same ratios in which they occur in the tissue of fish, and in a form readily absorbed into prepared and thawed frozen foods. As such, MaxAmino is primarily intended for use as a soak to enhance the nutritional value of frozen and prepared foods. It increases the protein percentage of foods by 10 mg per ml applied. Additionally, soaking new foods in MaxAmino encourages finicky fish to begin feeding, indicating that it enhances the flavor of these foods. MaxAmino does not require refrigeration, however storage in a cool, shaded area will prolong the stability of the amino acids. Refrigeration will maximize the shelf-life of the product.
Complex of 20 free-form amino acids found within tissues of fish.
Encourages vibrant coloration, formation of new tissue, speeds up growth rates & encourages new tissue growth.
Beneficial to all marine & freshwater fish.
Helps encourage fish to begin eating new foods easily.
Does not require refrigeration. Made in the USA.
