Being law abiding, especially in this world of invention and comely innovation is a sure a tool to healthy living even as advancement dawns on us. There is hardly an industry or established organization that does not live by laws that guide and regulate them and the same applies to the nutrition industry. Specifically, in Nigeria and in Europe, the major and most pronounced law is the labeling of products. This compulsorily implemented law as regards food information to buyers and customers ensure and provide nutrition information. This is surely the nutritious cruise of this new era. However, as much as this law of labeling products just took effect about two years ago, it has been regulated since the ’90’s.

This is a timely and informative discovery.
Aminogens are very obvious and clearly patented components of enzymes that enables the body to take up protein more effectively. Without this Aminogen, what happens is that most shakes goes into the body from an end and goes out from another end, leaving no amino acids in the body . A major research done about ten years ago resulted into the fact combining aminogen with protein increases the way proteins are absorbed. This is huge because what it produces is a product that builds the muscle and this is what is good for our bodies and invariably what we will love.
