Nutramine Amino Bites Medication
I have recently begun taking a Master Amino Acid Pattern Supplement, I am curious if this could interfering with any of my prescription medications?
Hello, I have been on Narcotic medication for about 10yr for Chronic Intractable pain. What vitamins/amino acids are being depleted? I had Gastric Bypass in 2010 to reduce weight on my spine. Issue=absorbtion. What do I eat to make sure I absorb meds?
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. Medications with or without Gastric Bypass have different absorption. Some with foods or not and some interact with different medications. ...Read more
I'm a 45 y.O. Black female & my bones & joints ache quite a bit. Occasionally, I get b vitamin & amino acid shots & I hurt much less. Why is that?
Can't be certain: The uses of vitamin injections to help one feel good has been done for years, but I know of no scientific data yet to confirm doing that. The Amino Acid injections - I know of no data about those either. If you are vitamin deficient that may be an explanation but some woudl explain this as a placebo response. ...Read more
Amino acids: I believe this refers to essential Amino Acids the body can't produce. There are 10. They must be derived from foods or supplements. Consult nutritionist as there is much hype among body builders and products being sold. They are literally the body's building blocks. Ie creative for muscle tissue. They can be overused so avoid hype and testimonials. ...Read more
Protein builders: Amino acids are chemicals which make up the internal sequential structures of all of the proteins in the body. All members of the plant and animal kingdom use them, some more than others. You get them in your diet and by internal construction with your bodies biochemistry. ...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
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
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
Diet & exercise: 100 grams of protein daily is the basal required. Amino acids are proteins & v.v. You don't need more protein except for extremely stressful exercises and then you only need an ounce or so more. Your stomach is built to break down proteins into amino acids. Save your money and eat a Big Mac. It will be just as beneficial and taste better & you can take it before, during or after workout. ...Read more
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. However, don't assume that just taking Amino Acids leads to protein synthesis
too many other factors are important...Generally, a balanced diet can give you all of the protein that you need
see your doctor and perhaps a dietician. ...Read more
Branch chain amino a: Go to goole or wikipedia for excellent diseases. They have branches on them and may or may not be healthy depending on what you mean by healthy. ...Read more
You don't: Amino acids are the building blocks for protein. So some people believe that taking the smaller units and not needing to break them down like you would protein foods, helps you build more muscle. Typically not true. Eat well balanced and maintain hydration which is more important. ...Read more
Legume and grain:
A legume and a grain
felafel (chickpea) and wheat (pita bread)
succatash- lima bean and corn
most beans combined with a grain. ...Read more
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
