Transcript of Vitamins, Amino Acids, Specialty Ingredients

Alanine aliphatic amino acid never directly involved in protein function
Participates in glucose-alanine cycle: enables glutamate and pyruvate to leave the msucle and go to the liver Arginine Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (AAKG) Arginine Pyroglutamate Asparagine Aspartic Acid Acetylcarnitine Saves the body 2 equivalents of ATP= energy when taking
Important to cell division: likewise, wound healing: bone and tissue repair.
Takes part in removing ammonia from the body.
Takes part in immune function and the release of horomones. May also: alpha ketoglutaric acid Part of the Krebs Cycle
Improves peak performance by combining with excess ammonia in the body and reducing ammonia toxicity levels. Monohydrate
Not much Wiki info, or in books* Can be made by using L-Ornithine and L-Citrulline in the body
Is the precursor to Methionine, Threonine, Isoleucine and Lysine
Therefore, this is a metabolite in the urea cycle and glucogensisi
Aspartate stimulates neurotransmitter receptors (NMDA) weakly.
These things contribute to the benefits of energy and stamina when taken as a supplement. Similar to the benefits found using L-Carnitine, this may have the same effects but with greater bioavailability--this is due to the ability to cross the blood/brain barrier.
Acts as an antioxidant in the blood brain circulation, which helps prevent brain cell deterioration.
Absorption of this ingredient is increased in the intestines with the presence of sodium. May be useful in treating peripheral OR spinal cord injury
Requires more research on helping Parkinson's disease
Improves male fertility... May also... L-Carnitine L-Carnitine L-Tartrate L-Citrulline L-Cysteine L-Cystine Used to transport fatty acids for energy--or for improved muscle response
Helpful in bone growth and aging
Provides a protective effect on the lipid peroxidation of phospholipid membranes--creating an antioxidant effect
The L-tartrate salt component is used in supplements to help the absorption of L-Carnitine into the body Amino Acids May also... May be beneficial to heart health
Those with kidney disease
Male fertility
As a weight loss supplement (improved muscle response)
For asthmatic children
For symptoms of hyperthyroidism This is naturally produced from arginine or ornithine
By supplementation, this can increase levels of arginine in the blood as it seems to work as a time release mechanism for arginine and it is more bioavilable to do so for arginine.
May act as a vasodilator with NO, as the combination can reduce blood pressure and increase blood flow (mimicing the eNOS activation).
Supports sexual health for ED.
Also detoxifies the liver of ammonia, which provides quick workout recovery.
May aid in aerobic exercise and stimulate actual muscle protein synthesis. 200-1000mg/day up to 8g for athletes Major source of metabolic sulfur, as the compound contains 2 units of cysteine molecules linked by a disulfide bond.
Therefore, acts as an antioxidant.
Immunity boosting properties.
May improve muscle recovery following vigorous exercise.
May improve soft tissue recovery following injury or surgery.
Vital component of hair keratin, digestive enzymes, and lactoglobulin.
Required for proper B 6 utilization.
May increase Glutathione levels. Ours is manufactured using duck feathers ONLY
Is the precursor to the antioxidant Glutathione.
Plays a valuable role in creating sulfide bonds necessary in protein folding.
Again, the source of sulfide in metabolism.
This is also converted to Alanine when iron-sulfide clusters are formed.
Used in permanent wave hair care application because it can break the disulfide bonds in keratin.
May help with the negative effects of alcohol and hangovers.
