Alpha AAX - amino acids
Nine essential amino acids are complemented by 10 of the non-essential amino acids. l-form amino acids are provided in Alpha AAX in powder form to be added to water, juices or food. The formula is useful for special nutritional needs. For example:
- when protein intake is inadequate
- when protein intake must be restricted
- when protein absorption is impaired.
- when a rational, known set of amino acids is required to correct metabolic disorders
Amino acids are the real nutrients derived from proteins by digestion of food. Amino acids do not trigger immune responses. Free amino acids are more expensive than protein powders, and hydrolyzed proteins but free the immune system from protein challenge. Some of these amino acids are not destined to be included in body proteins but will be used as neurotransmitters.
- Tyrosine and phenylalanine, for example, are converted to dopamine, noradrenalin and adrenalin.
- Tryptophan is converted into serotonin.
- Glycine itself is a major neurotransmitter in the spinal cord.
- Glutamate is the most abundant amino acid neurotransmitter in the brain.
Amino acids are the alphabet characters of body proteins. Proteins are chains of amino acids linked together like beads on a necklace. The individual amino acids fall into two groups: the essential AA's, which must be ingested, and the non-essential AA's, which can be synthesized in the body and need not appear in the food. A total of 9 amino acids are considered essential, while another 11 or so can be synthesized from the essential amino acids.
- There are other amino acids that appear in nature that are not included in protein structure. These odd amino acids appear especially in plants, where they may have roles as insect deterrents. An occasional non-nutrient amino acid may be useful in the food supply, as an accessory nutrient - carnitine and taurine are candidates.
Essential amino acids : Histidine, isoleucine, Leucine, lysine, methionine phenylalanine, threonine tryptophan, and valineNonessential amino acids: Alanine, arginine, aspartic acid, cystine, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosinePossible accessory nutrient amino acids: Taurine, l-ornithine, l-carnitineLife is an exercise in molecular synthesis and control. The programs, which determine what we are and how we function, are coded in DNA molecules, housed in the nucleus of every cell. The DNA code consists of strings of 64 alphabet characters that specify amino acids in-groups of three characters (codones). A single character is a base pair that is visualized as the rung on a ladder, twisted into a helix. The entire range of cellular procedures of life consists of stringing amino acids together. The DNA alphabet (blueprint) is first translated into enzyme synthesis. Enzymes, in turn, orchestrate and control the synthesis of all molecules (construction procedures). This is an elegant, simple plan that permits the evolution of great complexity.
Amino acids are individually added to an AAX are pure, l-form amino acids. The amino acids are produced by variety of techniques. The formulas are hypoallergenic and have been tolerated by people with food allergies.
AAX can be used whenever increased intake of amino acids is desirable. The dose range is 10 to 50 Grams per day in divided doses. The best time to take AAX is between meals, before and after workouts and body building exercises. AAX can be used to replace dietary protein when eating is reduced or digestion is impaired. AAX can be added to Alpha ENF and or Alpha PMX to boost amino acid intake. The caloric intake is minimal. There are no carbohydrates or fats in the formula.
Even with no food protein intake, a daily intake of 25 to 30 grams of free form amino acids will be adequate for most people, most of the time. RDA protein values are crude approximations based on food protein values.
AAX is a precisely engineered amino acid set and the amino acids are 100% available, so that the total daily requirement for amino acids is lower the RDA values for protein intake. As a rule of thumb, we recommend calculating the RDA protein requirement in Grams and supplying about 30% of that value as an Alpha blend of amino acids (Available separately in Alpha AAX or combined with other nutrients in Alpha ENF, Alpha PMX, and Alpha DMX.)
