The True Building Blocks of Life

How often do you think about Amino Acids? For most people, not-so-much! Well, your body “thinks” about them 100% of the time. While most of us have heard that amino acids are the building blocks of protein, do we really grasp their importance – that without them our bodies simply cannot make the proteins required by every living cell? In a sense, that makes amino acids the “building blocks” of our bodies! Is your body getting the amino acids it needs every day? Are you living your most vibrant life?

A Personal Experience

I’ve always suffered from high anxiety and panic attacks ever since I was a kid. I have been diagnosed with a panic disorder and agoraphobia on top of being bipolar while suffering from disassociation. All of these things I never thought I would find any sort of relief and would have to either go on pharmaceutical medication or just ‘live with it’ as many doctors and therapists told me. I have been in therapy since I was 10 years old and found little to no relief with all the techniques for combating anxiety. After years of listening to people who had studied anxiety and panic attacks, but had no idea what it was actually like my mom found this Total Amino Solution and I was hesitant at first because part of me felt like it was too good to be true. After years of trying to find something that helped, this was the thing. My first day taking it, I started with six a day. Within 20 minutes I felt my mind calming down, and my physical symptoms of anxiety started subsiding. I had to move up to 12 a day, but since I’ve started in the summer of 2014 I have been getting better. I’ve started leaving the house again, I’m having less panic attacks, and my disassociation isn’t causing nearly as many problems. I recommend this to a lot of people I know who suffer from high anxiety, and no one has told me anything negative about it. From my own personal experience, it’s nice to have some control over my life again.

Supplementing Your Diet with Amino Acids

When we encounter disease, nutritional problems, or environmental toxins, amino acids can become very important.

There are an estimated 100,000+ proteins found in the human body.  Structural proteins build and renew every cell, organ, and system in the body.  Functional proteins, including enzymes, carry out the metabolic functions of life itself.  They are all made from combinations of essential and nonessential amino acids.

Supplementing a diet with amino acids, combined with healthy eating and adequate water intake, provides the nutritional support needed to maintain metabolic balance, build muscle, and repair damaged cells.  Additionally, they improve and stabilize mood, support and protect nerve function, balance your immune system, aid in chronic fatigue, keep your heart healthy and more.  Unlike amino acids derived from food sources, free form, pharmaceutical-grade amino acids require no digestion.  Absorption is rapid and complete.

The value of using a complete amino acid supplement ensures all of the amino acids are available when they are needed.  When you experience emotional or physical stress, including injury, inflammation or infection, your body requires an increased supply of amino acids for support, defense and repair.  Having these nutrients readily available in a form requiring no digestion for assimilation provides broad-based amino acid nutrients to prevent or improve conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, hypoglycemia, depression, and more.

Wound Healing & Amino Acids

The immune system plays a role in the early stages of wound healing.  It is responsible for preparing damaged tissue for repair and promoting the recruitment of certain cells to the wound area. Consistent with the fact that stress alters the production of cytokines, it has been discovered that the chronic stress associated with caregiving for a person with Alzheimer’s disease leads to delayed wound healing.  The research results indicate that biopsy wounds healed 25% more slowly in the chronically stressed group and in those caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease, than in the unstressed control group.

Other risk factors for delayed wound healing include:

•  Arthritis

• Chronic liver disease

• Diabetes

• Excess alcohol intake

• Impaired self-caring

• Inadequate nutrition

• Inflammatory disease

• Older age (over 65 years)

• Poor circulation

• Poor cognition/cognitive dysfunction

• Smoking

• Vascular disease

• Weakened immune system

 

Opposing these risk factors, amino acids and other micronutrients are well documented for aiding in wound healing.  How?  Wound healing requires the body to replace injured tissue with new tissue, which requires increased consumption of nutrients, particularly protein and calories.  Improved nutritional status enables the body to heal wounds faster, and accelerated wound healing has actually been observed with nutritional supplementation. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein; you cannot rebuild tissue without them.  Following are some of the ways free-form amino acids aid in wound healing:

  • Nutrition profoundly influences the process of wound healing. Nutritional depletion exerts an inhibitory effect, and nutritional supplementation with such positive effectors as the amino acid arginine, can stimulate wound healing.  The use of amino acid supplements glutamine and arginine enhances wound healing and should be increased.
  • Nutritional care is cost-effective.
  • “Arginine … is involved with protein synthesis … with cell signaling through the production of nitric oxide and cell proliferation through its metabolism to the amino acid ornithine and the other polyamines.  Because of these multiple functions, arginine is an essential substrate for wound healing processes.  The requirement for this amino acid in tissue repair is highlighted.”

If you have a stubborn lesion, a burn or an ulcer, you may want to take free-form amino acid supplements for four to six weeks and note if this helps to speed the wound healing process.  However, always discuss any changes in your recovery process/approach with your health care professional.

Depression and Amino Acid Deficiency

To understand how amino acid deficiency exacerbates depression, it is important to understand how the brain affects our emotional and mental health.  The primary neurotransmitters that maintain healthy brain functions are serotonin, GABA, dopamine and norepinephrine.  Kept in balance, these neurotransmitters aid mood, sleep and anxiety.

Serotonin and GABA have a calming and inhibitory effect on the brain and on your mood, whereas dopamine and norepinephrine have a stimulating and excitatory effect on the brain and on your mood.  The balance of these four neurotransmitters is critical to experiencing life with passion, energy, focus, and zest.  One way to assist that important balance is with Total Amino Solution.

STRESS AND TOTAL AMINO SOLUTION™

In most cases, what we see with chronic stress is chronic emotional and/or physical pain.  In chronic stress conditions the stress will ultimately use up the endorphins.  You will need to rebuild your endorphin supply, which is made up of amino acids. The endorphins are your body’s natural morphine. By taking Total Amino Solution™, you are assisting to refuel your depleted endorphins, as well as your overall immune health.

What are amino nutrients?

During my quest to find the perfect “metabolic tune up” for my patients, I read the book, The Amino Revolution, written by Robert Erdmann, Ph.D., in 1989.  It is here that I realized a brilliant concept had been overlooked by the health care industry. This simple concept, a whole and complete amino acid supplement, allows an individual’s body and mind to “pick and choose” the needed amino acids as opposed to a health practitioner making an educated guess, using a “symptoms-only” approach, which often misses the big picture of the complex system of your total health.

This nutritional approach to health—amino nutrients—provides the synergy necessary for wellness and longevity.  Amino acids are in fact the missing puzzle piece that brings all the nutrients to optimum performance.

Wellness Blog: Complete Well-Being (Part 3)

It helps to think of a “complete blend” as a sturdy nutritional foundation on which you can successfully build your more specific, concentrated program to meet your individual needs for amino acids. Because a complete amino acid blend provides nutritional support for the whole body, many people now take it daily in the same way they would a vitamin or or mineral supplement.

A complete blend works like a “nutritional insurance policy”, making sure that you have all the digestive enzymes you need, and keeping the metabolic pathways well-oiled.

Many doctors recommend including a complete amino acid blend. Many people find that taking all free-form amino acids together in one supplement is every bit as important as taking them individually. Nutritionists agree that it’s a valuable nutritional aid in helping to strengthen your resistance to disease.

More important still is the fact that taking a complete  blend of amino acids is a marvelous way of ensuring your overall well-being whether you have been ill or not.
