PROTEFOOD by Standard Process
In addition to the 8 essential amino acids, the RNA (ribonucleic acid) in the product assures proper amino acid synthesis in the blood. 

Here is a product for helping people with their protein replenishment and metabolism. PROTEFOOD contains the 8 essential amino acids. I don’t know if you’re aware of the different types of amino acids. There are some 22 in all, and eight of these are called “essential” although some authorities feel there are ten essential amino acids. At any rate, if you’re getting the essential amino acids in your food, your body can make the others from their eight. Also, what amino acids you are getting in your food can only be utilized if the essential amino acids are all present. You’ve probably already heard of some of them, valine, leucine, isoleucine, phenylalanine, threonine, methionine, lysine, and tryptophan. Some people feel that histidine and cystine are also essential amino acids. Animal products contain all the essential amino acids that include milk, and eggs and products thereof. It’s these essential amino acids which are most likely to be deficient in the diet, as they are so quickly destroyed by heat. A person might eat plenty of protein foods, but if he’s not getting the essential amino acids – maybe his meat is overcooked – the amino acids he eats that are viable won’t be utilized in the tissues. They remain circulating in the blood stream. Evidence of this might be viscous blood, decreased appetite, loss of muscular tone, cold extremities, and fatigue. So, the person takes PROTEFOOD, and now he has the missing factors which enable him to utilize the amino acids already in his blood. The protein level in his blood begins to go down, because now the amino acids are being used by the cells. 

Usually, one daily is ample. The main symptom indicating a need for it is fatigue (although there may be other reasons for fatigue). If a person has weak adrenals or a slow metabolism, this will help him. It will speed up his metabolism.
