WHY DAMINOC ®

FACTS

Protein is the most important and dominant component in all organisms.

Every single cell in the human organism has a protein content of more than 50 %. Proteins consist for the most part of a large number of amino acids, which are essential for life and cannot be replaced by other nutrients.

Amino acids are the building blocks of muscles, tendons and ligaments, skin and hair. And they are the building blocks of the immune system and basic substance for enzymes and hormones. Acting as blood protein bodies, amino acids fulfill various transport functions. They are parts of the membranes, protect nerve tracts and are important carriers of genetic information.

Better than any Protein

The PDCAAS (Protein Digestibility Amino Acid Score) measures the value of a protein.

The PDCAAS value of a respective protein is determined by the combination of
a) Protein Digestibility
b) Biological value i.e. the amino acid profile (Amino Acid Score)

In this context, digestibility does not mean whether a food is tolerated or not. Rather, it represents the portion that is actually absorbed and not excreted. The higher the value, the better.
The biological value indicates how efficiently the body can convert the ingested protein into its own protein. A comparatively high value is also an advantage here.
When determining the value of the “Amino Acid Score” of a protein, the essential amino acids contained are evaluated.
The PDCAAS (abbreviated amino acid index) thus serves as an objective assessment criteria for the protein quality of plant-based or animal protein from food.

A high protein content is pointless without consideration of the amino acid profile and digestibility.

Nothing is better than the Original

Amino acids owe their fame to the research and further development of enteral and parenteral nutrition, in which nutrients, especially the essential amino acids, are administered directly via the small intestine or vein. This counteracts the exhaustion of protein stores, muscle loss and deficiency symptoms.

In contrast to energy sources such as carbohydrates and fats, amino acids contain nitrogen (N) and are able to form tissues such as organs, muscles, skin and hair.

Studies of the past 100 years in human and veterinary medicine and tissue-specific analyzes lead to the following results:

– Each species has its own specific amino acid pattern, a composition that is only valid for this species. It is from this specific amino acid pattern that those proteins are built, which enable the physical substance and life of this specific species.

– The more similar dietary proteins are to the body proteins in terms of their amino acid composition, the better the body can utilize them to build its own structures. In theory, pre-digested human meat would therefore contain the highest protein value for humans, dog meat for dogs, cat meat for cats, etc.

A Copy of the Body’s Proprietary Amino Acid Profile

The body’s proprietary amino acid profile was determined on the basis of autopsic examinations of species-specific tissues using amino acid analysis. According to these studies, organs such as the heart and liver carry the highest concentration of amino acids, even prior to muscles, which is an indicator for the importance of a sufficient supply of amino acids.

The composition of amino acids in the species-specific tissue thus served as the basis for deciphering the amounts and ratios of essential amino acids in DAMINOC®.
DAMINOC® ensures that all essential (10) amino acids are available to the body in synchronicity and exact accordance with the species-specific amino acid profile.

For the first time 10 Essential Amino Acids

Synthesis steps of the essential amino acids are complex and the required enzymes have been gradually lost in the course of evolution, so that the division into essential, semi-essential and non-essential amino acids has shifted.

For a long-term maintenance of nitrogen balance and protein synthesis, the supply of all essential (10) amino acids in precisely defined quantities is mandatory as the body can neither produce nor store them, and they consequently have to be continuously supplied from an external source i.e. by food intake.

If only one essential amino acids is present in insufficient quantity, protein synthesis is limited, i.e. if only 60 % of one amino acid is present in relation to the others, the utilization of all amino acids is limited to 60 %.

  1. Isoleucin
  2. Leucin
  3. Lysin
  4. Methionin
  5. Phenylalanin
  6. Threonin
  7. Tryptophan
  8. Valin
  9. Arginin
  10. Histidin

Unique Formula

It is of paramount importance to supply sufficient energy to the body by means of an intake of fats and carbohydrates, as otherwise the amino acids are not utilized to build cells but to release energy, thus lacking for structure purposes.
DAMINOC® therefore also contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) in the form of caprylic acid (C8), which are quickly split in the intestine and absorbed by the intestinal epithelial cells. Of all MCTs, C8 forms the most ketone bodies and is therefore the most valuable, medium-chain fatty acid. Bound to albumin, it is transported directly to the liver via the blood of the portal vein and is not stored in adipose tissue. Diseases such as Alzheimer’s, meanwhile already classified as “Type 3 diabetes”, arise, among other reasons, when brain cells no longer absorb glucose. Energy supply is missing and consequently the brain cells die.

Alternatively, they can be supplied by ketones, which unimpededly pass the blood-brain barrier and thus also function as a fast-acting energy source for the body and brain.
Like glucose, they are reabsorbed very quickly into the bloodstream and require 50 % less oxygen to burn compared to other fatty acids.

Sustainability

Fermented and processed entirely from plant-based sources, special microbes provide the purest and highest quality amino acids and thus the basis for the amino acid mixture contained in DAMINOC®.
Our protein sources today largely have their origin in factory farming and consequently no longer provide the desired nutritional value.
Due to the related value chain, a meat-based diet requires more energy, land and water and has greater environmental impacts compared to a vegetarian lifestyle.
DAMINOC® is suited to cover 100 % of the individual protein or amino acid requirement, and this does not require a single animal slaughter.

Only Natural Ingredients

DAMINOC® contains natural, coconut oil based, medium-chain triglycerides (at least 99 % caprylic acid) and plant based fermented, free-form, crystalline and hypoallergenic L-amino acids. Thanks to their pre-digestion, stomach and intestines are not stressed.
Uptake into the bloodstream starts after 10 minutes, whereas the digestion time for food protein, which firstly has to be broken down into amino acids, is 3-6 hours.
DAMINOC® is free from preservatives, flavorings and additives.

BENEFITS

TARGET GROUP

A lack of protein or individual amino acids due to malnutrition or poor nutrition can lead to serious health disorders that can affect almost all areas of diseases.
For vegetarians and vegans in particular, meeting the protein requirement and nitrogen supply can be challenging, as plant-based protein is more difficult to digest than animal protein and often has a significantly lower nutritional (protein) value.

However, the risk of insufficient coverage of requirements generally exists for all individuals, regardless of their gender or age, especially with increased performance requirements or in the course of recovery phases.

Due to its MCT content DAMINOC® is not only suitable for ketogenic use. Thanks to its composition, which is exclusively based on natural components, it is equally suited for optimized protein supply and protein synthesis for everyone, may these be meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans, flexitarians, pescetarians or fruitarians.

DAMINOC® is particularly suited for applications in cases of food or lactose intolerances, allergies or along with a reduced-calorie diet for the purpose of supplementing the amino acid requirement while avoiding stress on organs and / or cell metabolism.
