|The "Spirit of Excellence" has LONG since left the building.|
I used to recommend them, as I had taken them for a long time with great results. But now? NO!
I can no longer in good conscience recommend this brand to anyone.
In 2007: Shortly after I started on them.
Platinum Essential Amino Acids PLUS (PLAA) $39.00
This patented amino acid formula delivers a powerful new nutritional application of “just amino acids” plus missing essential sulfur, plus molybdenum to ensure liver enzyme detoxification and creatine to recycle phosphorus in back to ATP in debilitated persons.
Made from the finest vegetarian sources, hypoallergenic dietary supplement in vegetarian capsules, Platinum Plus is a balanced blend of essential amino acids (Proprietary blend)PLUS Organic MSM(sulfur), Molybdenum for Phase 1 & 2 liver detox and Creatine for extra muscle support.
Per 2 caps
Proprietary free-form amino acid blend 1000 mg
Molybdenum(as molybdenum amino acid chelate) 60 mcg
Methylsulfonylmethane(providing 136 mg sulfur) 400 mg
Creatine monohydrate 100 mg
No other ingredients listed, although they still could have cellulose, as it's stated veggie caps.
In 2014: Other ingredients: Cellulose and silica (which neither of those are necessary).
I know that cellulose is part of the capsule. But It also feeds Morgellons conditions, nannites and biofilm, according to Tony Pantelleresco). I could have changed the capsule and put in a gelatin capsule, making it cleaner.
NOW in 2016: Other ingredients: Cellulose and silica, specifically hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide. (Putting the amino acids in a gelatin capsule isn't going to help now.)
Cellulose is made of decomposed plant fibers (including wood) and is a common food additive to make make ice cream creamier or thicken salad dressing without adding calories. Since it is natural, even packaged foods labeled as organic often include cellulose. Mmmmm Sawdust! Yummy...
Freaking Cellulose in every damn supplement anymore!
Herein lies another problem with cellulose.
Nano tech utilizes the cellulose and turns it into a building block internally and over time you're breaking down at an accelerated rate. It starts with colon then reproductive then brain and then respiratory. Nanotech binding to the cellulose in the vege you will have to do your own filtering out.
Microcrystalline Cellulose is a DNA disrupter.
Cellulose - require proper bacterial presence, which is imbalanced due to dysbiosis of atrophic mucosa - fermentations and accumulations accumulations of toxic gases occur.
I will be using Master Amino Pattern (MAP) ONLY from now on and add the extra amino acids myself. I am tired of all these damn companies changing their products, making them weaker and adding extraneous UN-needed ingredients and fillers just to save a buck or two. Perhaps the FDA - Fucking Death Association is forcing companies to dirty up their products. Who knows?
And also Drucker Labs has shit on their IntraMAX product by putting Cyanocobalamin in their vitamin and mineral formula. It had only the pre-methylated form of Methylcobalamin before. Now it has both. So no more of that for me either. I'll just stick with the Wallach Tangy Tangerine, since it still has the Methylcobalamin.
Well, the "Spirit of Excellence" has LONG since left the building in the supplement industry.
So I'll take the Master Amino Acid Pattern (MAP) and add what is lacking to make it as close to Platinum Plus as I can.

Since they are caplets there are no capsules,so no cellulose to to have to change out for gel caps.
So what MAP is missing that Platinum Plus has/had And what it still needs to compare to Platinum Plus...
L-Cystine or even better NAC from the bulk bag.
L-Tyrosine (for thyroid to produce T4)
Creatine monohydrate 50 mg (get from bulk bag)
MSM 200 mg (or just take with organic sulfur crystals)
Molybdenum 30 mcg..
So the remaining can be bought in bulk form and add to gelatin caps to make it comparable to Platinum Plus. So I'll take MAP as it is, and add the rest in the capsules on my own to take with MAP. Well, I'm doing my own Chemistry 101 now here lately, so I can figure it out.
So here is what else I need to make it comparable...
Capsule Filling Machine
Portable Milligram Digital Scale 20g x 0.001g
0.001g 20g Digital Milligram Gram Scale balance weight
Bulksupplements Empty (00) Capsules (300 Gelatin Capsules)

BulkSupplements Pure NAC (N-Acetyl L-Cysteine) Powder (100 grams)
BulkSupplements Pure L-Tyrosine Powder (250 grams)
BulkSupplements Pure MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) Powder (1 Kilogram)
Although I will more than likely just keep using the organic sulfur crystals sourced from the Cellular Matrix Study. But the above product is clean and free from any fillers or anti-caking agents.
BulkSupplements Pure Creatine HCL Powder (250 grams)
BulkSupplements Pure Micronized Creatine Monohydrate Powder (1 Kilogram)
NOW I still have to find next is the Molybdenum 30 mcg
Hopefully from this company: http://powdersunlimited.com/products-minerals/
