Which ingredient is the best way fight wrinkles? Retinol, peptides, collagen, stem cells, plancenta, amino acids or vitamin C
Growth factors: We have known since the 70s that retinoids and retinols are great collagen stimulators (which equals wrinkle fighters). In this century, we developed collagen growth factors which are derived from actual human skin and are necessary for collagen to thrive, thus reducing and eliminating wrinkles. Note i did not say "appearance of wrinkles". Skinmedica is my favorite product to contain these. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See below: Amino acids are the building blocks of protein that help form muscles and other body tissue. Essential Amino Acids are those that must be consumed every day to support optimal health. Cooking foods destroys some essential Amino Acids they contain, but the negative effects vary depending on which cooking method is used.Even straight sulfuric acid will not destroy most amino acids. ...Read more
Let me explain: The essential branched chain Amino Acids (bcaa's) include leucine, isoleucine, and valine. The above "essential" Amino Acids will be used for protein synthesis which is optimal for advanced human performance. It should also be noted that essential Amino Acids are not produced in the body such as non-essential amino acids, but rather obtained through proper nutrition. ...Read more
Amino Acids Coffee: The short answer is that most free Amino Acids are destroyed with just five minutes of roasting and the residual content depends on the toe of bean used: http://www.Sciencedirect.Com/science/article/pii/s0308814604002043. ...Read more
YES: Eggs are such a good and complete source of amino acids/protein that they are the standard to which other foods are compared for adequacy of protein. It is wise to choose organic eggs and ones that are pasture-raised if possible. See http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=foodspice;dbid=92 for a good discussion of the nutritional content of eggs. ...Read more

Yes, but from food: Amino acids are in all foods except those that have no protein. People need a variety of foods. Normal people do not need amino acid supplements. Since most supplements are not medications approved by the FDA, amino acid products are probably not tested for interactions and side effects like real medicines are. So, that means nobody really knows what the effects and the side effects are. ...Read more
What happens if two different amino acids have the same concentration, does the same amount of light pass through them?
Spectroscopy: Not only is the amount of light passing through a solute in solution dependent on the properties of the solute, but also the frequencies at which the light is absorbed. The various amino acids absorb light in different parts of the spectrum, and so depending on what part of the spectrum you are taking your light measurement, you will very likely detect differences among them. ...Read more
What kind of problems and symptoms could occur for a vegetarian who doesn't get all the essential amino acids? Just curious.
Malnutrition: amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Without the presence of a complete set of these building blocks you can't make many proteins vital to body function including enzymes, neurotransmitters etc. Enzymes include digestive enzymes without which you compromise the ability to absorb and digest other food groups as well as vitamins and minerals. It can affect everything in your body! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
