Hello, does amino acids helps in burning fat and loosing weight.pleas help?

No: We all take amino acids in our diet. Proteins are made of amino acids and proteins are present in grains, legumes, beans, nuts, milk etc. There is no substitute to reducing caloric intake and increasing physical activity. For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.

Could I take amino acids for recovery from training (wrestling, strength and conditioning) without gaining weight?

Yes: Amino acid pills or powders have a specific calorie content, but it is usually small. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins such as those found in lean meat. Supplements are not likely to provide any benefit beyond a balanced menu including meat, dairy, eggs, beans and rice. I suggest you do a little research on real food sports nutrition. Gaining weight is NORMAL at 16, allow it! ...Read more

Bypass: B12 and Folate are often sacrificed in Gastric Bypass and I would consider supplementing that. As to medications, I would talk to your doctor. I do not see your meds listed.

Infant suffering from Maple syrup disease shouldn't be given food that is containing branched chain amino acids, what are those foods?

Nutrition Specialist: Maple Syrup Urine Disease is a genetic defect. Inability to metabolize branched chain amino acids means dietary proteins must be avoided to prevent brain injury, glucose anomalies & more. Elimination of dietary protein is crucial however the risk of serious nutritional deficits is great without guidance from doctors & nutritional experts.

Which combination of amino acids produce dystrophin gene?

Which combination of amino acids produce dystrophin gene?

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 more

What is your take on sport supplements such creatin, protein and amino acids.
?

They do work.: Actually, protein, amino acids (particularly the BCAAs) and creatine will actually help — there is literature to support their benefit. Make sure you drink plenty of water while increasing your intake of proteins and adding creatine. For creatine, no more than 5g daily (can get benefit with as little as 1g daily). For protein, don’t need much more than 1g per kilogram body weight per day. ...Read more
