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 more

If you were to become a total vegan, what is the smallest combination of food items needed to get all the essential vitamins, and fatty & amino acids?

If you were to become a total vegan, what is the smallest combination of food items needed to get all the essential vitamins, and fatty & amino acids?

You can't: If you become a non-supplementing vegan, you will ruin your health. Clinicians describe it as so common that there's even a "vegetarian's myelopathy", a disease of the spinal cord from B12 deficiency, with numbness and paralysis of the legs. If you want to be a vegan for moral reasons, you will need to supplement. Anyone telling you otherwise is a huckster. Protect your health. Read more

What kind of problems and symptoms could occur for a vegetarian who doesn't get all the essential amino acids? Just curious.

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

What is a excellent recovery supplement after a difficult workout? Besides essential amino acids and protein.

Real food is best: After intense or difficult workouts your best bet for recovery is lean proteins and low glycemic carbs like sweet potato or berries. Try to eat w/in 15 minutes of finishing if you can. Protein supplements can be more convenient, but try to throw in some real food every now and them. Omega-3 supplements can also speed recovery and decrease soreness before the next workout. Read more

Does plant protein really lack some essential amino acids? If so, wouldn't non-meat eaters die or become malnourished over time as a result?

Does plant protein really lack some essential amino acids? If so, wouldn't non-meat eaters die or become malnourished over time as a result?

NO, plenty of protein: No, it is not at all difficult to get all essential Amino Acids from plants. Combining legumes (beans, peas, peanuts) with either grains or nuts/seeds readily supplies all essential amino acids. See http://nutrition.About. Com/od/askyournutritionist/f/protein_combo. Htm
the main nutrient that can't be obtained from a vegan diet is vit B12 so vegans should take B12 (but dairy ; eggs have b12). Read more

Is there any interaction between isolate whey protein and klonopin (clonazepam)? I'm asking because protein contains amino acids and I suppose its not a good mix with klonopin (clonazepam).

Is there any interaction between isolate whey protein and klonopin (clonazepam)? I'm asking because protein contains amino acids and I suppose its not a good mix with klonopin (clonazepam).

Protein binding: We mostly have information on protein binding of Clonazepam (klonopin) in the context of organ failure compared to normal. Any Amino Acid you eat, or any protein is usually well regulated by liver and kidneys and likely has little impact on its metabolism as a drug unless you have organ failure and altered protein metabolism.
