L-Taurine

Posted by:

Taurine is a non-essential sulfur rich amino acid that is found in abundance in the central nervous system and is essential for the maintenance and protection of vision. It is synthesized in the liver from the amino acids cysteine and methionine, along with the assistance of Vitamin B6. Taurine is helpful as an antioxidant, and in stimulating the production of bile, which is important for adequate digestion and absorption of ...

L-Glutamine

Posted by:

The amino acid glutamine plays a key role in the metabolism, function, and structure of the entire gastro-intestinal (GI) tract and its extensive immune system. Many clinical studies support that the fact that dietary and endogenous glutamine is critical in maintaining normal intestinal permeability, mucosal cell regeneration, and structure. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in the blood and is also involved in blood sugar stabilization, wound healing, protein metabolism and ammonia detoxification. It is also concentrated ...

L-Carnosine

Posted by:

L-Carnosine is a naturally occurring dipeptide, which is a protein building block consisting of two amino acids, alanine and histidine. Found abundantly in the muscle and brain tissues of the body, L-Carnosine levels decrease significantly with age. Neurological research suggests that L-Carnosine appears to stimulate brain function in areas of the brain that control emotion, abstract thinking, and expressive speech. Additional research has also shown L-Carnosine to also ...

L-Carnitine

Posted by:

L-Carnitine is an important nutrient and is necessary for fatty acid metabolism and energy production in heart and muscle function. Although L-Carnitine is not “officially” an amino acid, it bears many resemblances to amino acids and is usually grouped under this heading. Since the burning of fat is a major source of muscular energy, deficiencies in L-Carnitine are manifested as low energy levels and muscular weakness. L-Carnitine deficiencies can ...

Glycine

Posted by:

Glycine is an amino acid essential for aiding the detoxification pathways in the body and for central nervous system function. In the brain, glycine acts to inhibit the neurotransmitters that can cause seizure activity, hyperactivity, and manic (bipolar) depression. It also helps supply the body with glucose needed for energy and helps to regulate blood sugar levels. And lastly, glycine participates in processing motor and sensory information that permits movement, ...

GABA natural calm

Posted by:

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid that functions as a neurotransmitter in the brain. GABA is synthesized in the brain from another amino acid, glutamate, and functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter – meaning that it blocks nerve impulses. In the body, GABA is concentrated in the hypothalamus region of the brain and is known to play a role in the overall functioning of the pituitary gland – which regulates ...

Acetyl-L-Carnitine

Posted by:

Acetyl-L-carnitine is a derivative of L-carnitine that provides all the benefits and functions of L-carnitine such as aiding in fatty acid metabolism and energy production. Deficiencies in L-carnitine are manifested as low energy levels and muscular weakness. The acetyl group that is part of acetyl-L-carnitine contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is required for mental functioning. Recent animal studies show that only the acetyl form of ...
