Brightwell Aquatics MaxAmino Free-Form Amino Complex for Enhancing Fish Foods 250 ml /8.5 fl. oz.

Brightwell Aquatics MaxAmino Free-Form Amino Complex for Enhancing Fish Foods 250 ml /8.5 fl. oz.
  • Unique complex of 20 free-form amino acids in the same ratios found within tissues of fishes.
  • Beneficial to all marine, brackish, and freshwater fish species.
  • Free-form amino acids:
    1. Encourage vibrant coloration.
    2. Provide the building blocks of protein in ideal
    ratios to encourage the formation of new tissue,
    speeding up growth rates.
    3. Encourage new tissue growth to aid in recovery
    from wounds incurred during aggressive
    encounters with tankmates or during spawning
  • Increases the protein concentration of fish foods.
  • Acts as an attractant to encourage finicky fishes to begin eating new foods.
  • Formulated based upon data compiled by ichthyologists researching tissue profiles of various fishes.
  • Does not require refrigeration.
  • Formulated by a marine scientist.

Technical Overview:

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 arious 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 foods. 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 fishes, 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 fishes 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.
