Drug companies use them in research and drug delivery, etc. Of course proteins (that you can eat) are made up of Amino Acids (many of them!) -- so in a sense that would be like a polyamino acid. But it isn't the type the term usually means. ...Read more
Most protein grams.: The amount of proteins in the shake will define the amount of amino acids in the shake. Amino acids + amino acids = proteins. So the shake with the highest amount of calories from proteins will be the one that has the most amino acids. This does not mean specific amino acids you might be looking for. ...Read more
Not exactly : Just like you can use wood to build many different styles of houses, but you would not consider a pile of wood and a house to be the same thing, you use Amino acids to build proteins. Depending on which amino acids are present and how they are combined you get different proteins. Amino acids are the simpler building blocks of more complex proteins. ...Read more

My protein supp. contains calcium caseinate, this form of casein is treated with alkalies. Chemical alkalies damage nutrient absorption. Is this true?
Will an amino acid formula interfere with synthroid (thyroxine). For example GNC amino acid formula?
Has 'branched chain amino acids' (bcaa) diet suplement some negative affects on human body? (kidneys, liver etc.?)
DNA: Genes are made up of nucleic acids called DNA. Those genes are then transcribed into amino acid sequences called proteins. The dystrophin gene is much too large to spell out in a DNA sequence, and its protein is much too large to spell out in an amino acid sequence. Here is a link to some more information on the gene. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/1756 ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Essentially All: Vitamins are just simple helper molecules present in nearly all foods to extent humans have not maintained every gene/protein needed to make them out of whatever other molecules. Their role is helping specific protein enzymes facilitate specific chemical reactions to progress rapidly at body temp which are otherwise inordinately slow. Unclear what you are asking & the purpose/goal of your question. ...Read more

Whey Protein: All protein is made up of Amino Acids in various combinations. Whey protein isolate is the most pure form (contains 90% or more protein) and it has little to no fat, lactose or cholesterol. Whey protein concentrate has anywhere between 29 - 89% protein. 60% of whey protein is essential amino acids. See this website for aas: http://www.Nutrabio.Com/products/whey_protein_isolate.Htm#.Uaorezx0syg. ...Read more
Citrus Juices: Many fruits (and their juices) are good sources of folic acid, but citrus fruits are highest with orange juice in the lead. Other folate-rich fruit juices: grapefruit, grapes, banana, cantaloupe, papaya, & strawberries. Beet, spinach, & carrot juice make good choices too.
