Aromatic Amino Acids List
Could asupplement with aminoacids, vitamins(l-carnitine, l-tartaric acid, potassium chloride, l-leucine, isoleucine, valine, nicotinic)cause damage on brain?
Let me explain: The essential branched chain Amino Acids include leucine, isoleucine, and valine are of special importance for athletes because they are metabolized in the muscle, rather than in the liver . Theoretically, after digestion once protein is broken down into individual Amino Acids these Amino Acids can either be used to build new proteins or be burned as fuel to produce energy. ...Read more
Many: Fish is one of the most well known: such as salmon, tuna, sardines, and halibut; other seafood including algae and krill; some plants like brussels sprouts, kale, spinach, and salad greens ; flax seeds; and walnuts. Some people's systems are not efficient at converting alpha-linolenic acid (ala) from plant-based omega-3's to epa and dha that are needed; for these, fish or krill oil may be better. ...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
Synthetic: "polyamino acids" are synthetic, and i don't know of any natural foods that contain them. 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
Has 'branched chain amino acids' (bcaa) diet suplement some negative affects on human body? (kidneys, liver etc.?)
Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout?
Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?
None will effect gou: Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements. BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...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
Are whey and casein protein powder shakes safe long term? Any alternatives that also contain all essential amino acids? Thanks!
Essential Amino Acid: The Amino Acids regarded as essential for humans are phenylalanine, valine, threonine, tryptophan, isoleucine, methionine, leucine, lysine, and histidine essential Amino Acids are "essential" not because they are more important to life than the others, but because the body does not synthesize them. ...Read more
Could sports supplements such as, pre workouts, protein, amino acids and fat burners cause infertility?
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
"Amino fuel": It might be generally safe, but it has 10 grams of sugar in each serving and also uses Cyanocobalamin for the b12. Routinely using anything over 5 grams of sugar in a serving causes a sugar spike and increased Insulin response -- possibly leading to Insulin resistance which you do not want. Also, methylcobalamin is much preferable over Cyanocobalamin for the b12. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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. See your doctor for referral to a nutrition specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
