Creatine Vs Amino Acids
What for?: What are you taking these supplements for? There is no evidence that these will do you any good. For good health do the following: 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. ...Read more
Yes: No studies have shown creatine improving performance for endurance athletes. It has been shown to improve maximal lifting weight when creatine is used along with resistance training. No effect was shown in women or older men. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. A diet high in protein would assist in muscle growth when taken along with resistance training. ...Read more
Is it safe to take branched chain amino acids and/or creatine as a training supplement while breastfeeding my 3.5 year old? Thank you.
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

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
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.

Yes: Everybody needs Amino Acids every day, whether you are working our or not. The best source of Amino Acids is protein in our diet- beans, nuts, seeds., dairy, eggs, meat, but some people have trouble digesting these or have a diet low in these foods, in which case taking Amino Acids can help. Blood and urine tests can assess whether you are deficient in Amino Acids but extra Amino Acids are safe. ...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 more
Hello, I'm new to the gym stuf, I've been there for three weeks now, and a friend told me to take amino acids, and I hope to know if its a good thing?
They are not!: Protein is purely made of a number of amino acids. V when Amino Acids are added to a supplement, they are usually branched chain. Theoretically, the are absorbed directly, rather than having to be broken dow first in your intestine. But the benefits are minimal to the cost, a may not exist at all despite the hype in protein supplements! not needed. ...Read more
