Vital Amino Essentials

Essential Amino Acids + Elderberry + D3

30 Reviews 4.9 stars based on 30 Customer Reviews

Amino acids are the building blocks of the human body, and are essential for everything from weight management and strong muscles, to healthy skin and nails. The only problem? There are 9 essential amino acids that our bodies don’t make on their own — so it’s crucial to get them through diet or supplementation. That’s where we come in.

Vital Amino Essentials features all 9 essential amino acids, powerful phytonutrients, prebiotic fiber, plus two “bonus” amino acids. This delicious tropical citrus guava-flavored drink helps provide you with the building blocks you need for a healthy, energized body.†*

  • Help support efficient weight management and a healthy body composition with 11 powerful amino acids you need for optimal health.*
  • Gut friendly prebiotics and antioxidants are an absolute must for efficient digestion, fantastic energy levels, and a “powered up” body.*
  • Vitamin D3 — an elite collagen support compound — can also help keep your mood boosted, energy levels supported, and your body feeling mobile and comfortable.*
  • Powerful immune support compound Eldermune™ can help your system keep running at peak levels.*

*All individuals are unique; as such, your results can and will vary.

Powered-up Wellness Support:†

Glycine and L-Proline

These two “bonus” amino acids are key for supporting your body’s collagen production, the process that helps skin look healthy, nails and hair be strong, and joints be comfortable — for an overall strong, thriving body.*


A potent formulation combining elderberry juice concentrate for immune support, with Sunfiber®, a prebiotic digestive fiber, to nourish your digestive system while supporting your immune system.*

PhytoServ™ Fruit Blend

A powerful mix of plant based extracts chock full of phytonutrients — or “super-antioxidants” that help the body fend off oxidative stress
and daily “wear.”*

Vegan Essential Amino Acid Blend


Amino9 is composed of a unique blend of the 9 essential amino acids the body needs — but can only get from outside sources. Amino acids are involved in almost every biological process and aid in immune support, muscle maintenance, enzyme and hormone levels, and more. The 9 vegan-sourced amino acids featured in this powerful blend are building blocks that the body simply can’t make itself.*

Plant-Based D3


When it comes to living a long, healthy, happy life, Vitamin D3 is key. Not only is it vital for supporting strong bones, but it’s shown to support energy and mood, and even the immune system.*

Who should use Vital Amino Essentials?
Vital Amino Essentials was designed for anyone who wants to support a powered-up, healthy body as they age. It’s perfect for anyone hoping to enjoy a supported immune system, boosted energy levels, a strong, healthy body, active, mobile joints, a healthy body weight, and smooth, comfortable digestion.*

How do I use Vital Amino Essentials?
It’s easy! All you need to do is mix one scoop of our easy-dissolve formula with 8 oz of water, then enjoy — Vital Amino Essentials is delicious with meals, or when you need a between-meal pick-me-up. It’s also great blended with iced green tea for a coffeehouse-style tropical iced tea.

What does Vital Amino Essentials taste like?
Vital Amino Essentials is a delicious, tropical citrus guava flavored drink that’s tasty when mixed with water, iced tea, or even coconut milk. Some of our users say the flavor is like a “vacation in a glass” — how fun!

How pure is Vital Amino Essentials?
Purity is our number one priority here at ActivatedYou®, and all of our products go through rigorous testing for quality, purity and potency at an independent, 3rd-party facility.

What if it doesn’t work for me?
We’re proud of our products, and we stand behind them 100%. It’s the reason we take pride in our 90-day ActivatedYou® promise. If you’re not thrilled by your results for any reason, just contact our customer service team.

Can I combine ActivatedYou products with what I’m already taking?
Everyone’s body is different. There are a lot of health and lifestyle factors that go into making that decision. When adding any new supplement to your daily routine, we recommend speaking with your primary doctor, pharmacist, or nutritionist for the best advice.

Can your ActivatedYou products be combined with hot drinks like coffee or tea?
We don’t recommend combining our products with hot liquids such as coffee or tea. The heat can reduce the effectiveness of the probiotics and delay the desired results.

Are the jars/bottles recyclable?
The container is made of PETE and is indeed recyclable.

Dec 25 2023   Feels Good

“I’ve been taking it for about 3 weeks. I mix it with morning complete. I feel I have more consistent energy throughout the day. I don’t feel the afternoon lull as often. I have tried taking it in the afternoon for a pick me up but often forget that I brought it to work for that purpose. I find the morning easier to remember and I still feel I get the benefits.”

Dec 20 2023   Feel good

“I’ve noticed I feel good! My energy level seems to be tanking less and less in the afternoon. I’m up early and out the door for a walk every day- this is new. I’m sleeping good- I’m sleeping! I’m in my menopausal years so this is great! For the first time ever my nails are growing strong I. even have my husband and sons taking them… that’s huge. Love my Amino Acids!”

Sep 29 2023   Slowly coming around!

“I’ve only been taking Vital Aminos for a week or two, along with Morning Complete and the probiotics. It wasn’t an overnight sensation for me but I’m definitely seeing my digestive system coming around…stools are more regular and better formed! I love the flavor and light feel to these products. I take them first thing in the morning, only in water, then wait 20 minutes or so for my full morning meal. I feel great into the evening when I eat my second meal of the day. Thanks Activated You!”

Sep 16 2022   More Energy & Less Sweet Tooth

“I started taking this mid-day, and I noticed an energy boost. Even better, I feel less snack-y for the afternoon slump and on into the evening. I'm one of those who doesn't feel the day is complete without dessert, but since I started taking this, I've *forgotten* (seriously!) to have dessert at least 60% of the time because I don't have the cravings.”
