About Amino Acids

Amino acids play central roles both as building blocks of proteins and as intermediates in metabolism.  They are catalysts to most, if not all, cellular processes. Scientific research has demonstrated that conditions as varied as chemical sensitivities, cardiovascular disease, macular degeneration, bone disorders and insomnia are associated with amino acid imbalances.  Amino acids are required for neurotransmitter and hormone production.

Numerous health conditions are associated with amino acid metabolism as a result of the many physiological processes they are involved in.  The production of neurotransmitters, hormones, nitric oxide, urea, antioxidants, connective tissue and ATP are just a few examples.  Liver detoxification reactions involve glutathione conjugation, amino acid conjugation (taurine, glycine) methylation, sulphation and acetylation and glucuronidation.

Symptoms of Amino Acid Deficiency or Excess

Many people have amino deficiencies and or excesses this is because each person is unique and has different amino acid requirements.  There are many problems that can result in amino acid imbalances some these include:
