Full Answer

The product is classified as a dietary supplement, so its uses have not been verified by the FDA, and it cannot cure or prevent diseases, according to Miller Pharmacal.

Dietary supplements differ from medications, Web MD says. Legally, supplements are food products, not health products. A/G Pro vitamins cannot replace vitamins obtained from food, but they can claim to maintain health, according to these legal standards.

Men's Fitness says taking amino acid supplements can help reduce fat, increase muscle and improve physical performance, but these effects are not definitively proven. Researchers think amino acids help muscles recover after a workout. In fact, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, initial studies show that amino acid supplements have an overall positive effect on muscle tone.

A/G Pro vitamins are available online for anyone to purchase without a prescription. While this product doesn't require a prescription, it is important to talk to a doctor before starting any new supplement. The FDA has not evaluated the product for safety, and it cannot claim to have the same effect for everyone.
