Product Overview


  • Complete "Free-Form" Blend of all 9 Essential Amino Acids
  • Non-GMO
  • A Dietary Supplement
  • GMP Quality Assured

Amino acids are the subunits that make up proteins. They are necessary for the function of all cells, for tissue repair, and for the production of enzymes and neurotransmitters. The body uses 20 amino acids to construct proteins, but nine "essential amino acids" cannot be made by the human body and must be supplied by the diet in order to achieve proper protein synthesis and maintain overall health. People with limited diets or poor digestion may not get enough essential amino acids from their diet. In contrast to proteins or peptide-bound amino acids, NOW Amino-9 Essentials has all 9 essential amino acids in the superior free-form state and in the proportions recommended by the National Academy of Sciences to optimize protein synthesis and tissue repair for adults age 19 and over.

Suggested Use

Mix 2 1/4 level teaspoons with 8 fl oz of juice or your favorite beverage once daily. Taking with juice or other beverage is recommended due to bitter taste of free-form amino acids.

Other Ingredients


Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.

helps with adrenal fatigue

Posted by 5434529120840420429 on Apr 20, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I have severe adrenal fatigue, for which I take adrenal glandulars. But I am a vegetarian and it is very important to get a lot of good quality protein to help keep the blood sugar regulated. So I found taking a teapoon full of this powder two times during the night helps me a lot with hot flashes, and makes my adrenal glandulars work better. As always, take amino acis with coenzyme B Complex or B6. I just put a spoonful in my mouth and wash it down with water. It doesn't taste too bad (:

Mix it with your fav morning drink

The raw taste is very bitter. Best to mix it with your fav morning beverage like milk or juice.

You will not feel a kick in energy, more like gentle help to energy levels. These are the only aminos that are worth it. They are complete - all 9 of them. They are in free form - digestion is not required (unlike most other aminos on the market, that are whey protein in pill form). They are in very good and natural ratio. They are not tasty, but that is not the point here!!!! They are bitter as there are no additatives and that is GREAT! Pour some milk, add a banana, add the aminos, blend it and you will not feel the taste. The powder does not mix easy, use some electric device.

Bad taste

Great formula if you want to put it in capsules. Impossible to get it down otherwise.

I use all kind of supplements and I have never tasted anything disgusting as that! do yourself a favor and don't buy it. I must say that usually I love now foods products because they have quality products and their cheap but the taste in this specific product is just non edible.
