What are Amino Acids?

It really is All About The AMINO'S.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and of life and are the primary components in the machinery of cells in plants. Origin 360™ contains 17 of the 20 amino acids found in living cells!

Amino acids are naturally designed to be repurposed and to generate life again. It’s really quite simple— when Mother Nature is allowed to do her work, there are no synthetic products needed.

Amino acids also play a role in protecting plants against insects and disease. Weak plants have extra water between the cell walls, providing easy access to sucking insects and fungal pathogens. Strong plants with extra pectin between the cell walls are hardened against attacks, forming a physical barrier against invaders.

Origin 360™ contains the following Amino Acids: Aspartic Acid, Serine, Glutamic Acid, Proline, Glycine, Alanine, Cystine, Valine, Methionine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Tyrosine, Phenylalanine, Lysine, Histidine, Arginine and Tryptophan.

Glycine is one of the most important amino acids for plants, and one of the most prevalent amino acids in Origin 360™. Because glycine is the smallest amino acid it naturally makes the smallest chelated molecules that pass readily through plant tissues. Once inside the plant, the mineral or metal (e.g. calcium, zinc, manganese, magnesium, etc.) is released, and the leftover amino acids are either used by the plant directly as amino acids or further broken down into water soluble nitrogen.

Glutamic acid is the most prevalent amino acid in Origin 360™ . Glutamic acid and glycine both stimulate root cells to open calcium ion channels, allowing plants to take up calcium ions many times faster than osmosis. The increased availability of calcium provided by amino acid chelated calcium has several other benefits. For instance, a plant with a strong vascular system takes up water and nutrients more efficiently. Supplementing plants with amino acid-chelated calcium can help strengthen the plants’ natural immune system, potentially reducing the need for pesticides and fungicides. 

Introducing these Amino’s to your plants will ensure their continued growth and health.
