Amino Acid Therapy

Last updated 2 years ago

About This Offer

"Amino acids are the breakdown products of proteins, some of which are not readily available in diet and need to be supplemented in a concentrated form.  They are the building blocks of proteins.

Amino acids, derived from protein intake, are precursors to brain chemicals such as serotonin, a natural anti-depressant-like chemical produced in the brain. Serotonin requires the amino acid tryptophan, found in foods such as turkey, for its production. Without the proper amino acids in our diet, our brains can become depleted of these crucial chemicals, otherwise known as neurotransmitters.  Neurotransmitter depletion can not only lead to depression, it is also connected with insomnia, Attention Deficit Disorder, anxiety, memory loss, weight gain and addictive disorders. Proper neurotransmitter balance cannot always be achieved through diet alone.  In order for these amino acids to be taken up into the brain, they have to be carried across the blood-brain barrier using a specific transport system.
So, how can we increase the amount of serotonin in the brain utilizing tryptophan as a precursor?  The answer lies in the timing of supplementation.  Between meals, the levels of circulating amino acids in the bloodstream decreases. By supplementing with an individual amino acid when one is between meals, we are allowing that particular amino acid to become more available to be taken up by the transporter at the blood-brain barrier. Once the amino acid is taken up in the brain, it can then be used for neurotransmitter production.
Each neurotransmitter has a specific amino acid, which is required for its synthesis and plays a particular role within the brain and body."
