    A10    Isoleucine
    Essential.
    Chronically sick; formation of haemoglobin; energy production; reduces tremors and twitching in animals; body building.

    A11    Leucine
    Essential.
    Chronically sick; essential for growth; wound healing of skin and bones; energy production; Parkinson’s disease; enhances effects of endorphins.

    A12    Lysine
    Essential.
    Often low in vegetarian diets; important for children's growth and development; involved in synthesis of carnitine, so important in fat metabolism; formation of antibodies; dietary deficiency leads to increased calcium excretion; herpes simplex; concentration; fatigue; dizziness; anaemia; visual disorders; nausea; hypoglycaemia.

    A13    Methionine
    Essential.    
    Antioxidant preventing free radical damage; helps produce choline, adrenaline, lecithin and B12; assists gallbladder function; precursor of taurine, cystine and cysteine. Heavy metal and histamine detoxifier; strengthens hair follicles; detoxifies liver; affects selenium bio-availability; arthritic and rheumatoid symptoms; detoxification; antioxidation; retards cataracts; Parkinson’s disease; schizophrenia; gallbladder problems resulting from use of contraceptive oestrogen; poor skin tone; hair loss; anaemia; retarded protein synthesis; atherosclerosis; herpes; memory; premature ejaculation.

    A14    Ornithine
    Non-essential.
    Stimulates growth hormone production by pituitary gland; increases metabolism of fat and enhances transportation of amino acids to cells; ammonia detoxification in urea cycle; enhances wound healing; stimulates immune system; may be useful in auto immune diseases; memory.

    A15    Phenylalanine
    Essential.    
    Precursor of tyrosine and therefore dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline) and epinephrine (adrenaline), so affects heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen consumption, blood sugar levels, fat metabolism; important for brain; necessary for thyroid; shortage predisposes children to eczema; weight control; antidepressant; pain killer; MS; Parkinson’s disease; memory; concentration and mental alertness; rheumatoid arthritis; vitiligo; emotional disorders; circulatory problems; drug addiction; tremors.

  • Comments

    Amino acids are divided into essential (cannot be manufactured by the body and, therefore, must be taken in food) and non-essential. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, including human protein.

    Other amino acids are in the Body Biochemical Test Kits.

    Although cells synthesise many different chemicals, a large part of the cellular machinery is devoted to producing proteins. Proteins determine the physical and chemical characteristics of cells and so are vitally important. Protein is used to produce enzymes, some hormones, organelles, muscle (e.g. actin and myosin), structural components of skin and hair (e.g. collagen and keratin), plasma (blood) protein, antibodies, etc. The instructions for producing proteins are coded within the genes.

    "Genes that work in the immune system code for proteins that do things like binding disease-causing parasites, presenting the bound parasite to executioner cells, and chemically dissolving the parasites. These activities correspond to directions both direct and implicit like 'detect the enemy', 'here's one of the bastards', and 'kill'." Page 31 Mendel's Demon Mark Ridley.

    Proteins consist of amino acids that always contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen. Proteins are giant molecules made by linking large numbers of amino acids, end to end, so they form a chain. In nature more than 100 amino acids are found, but only 20 are used in humans. The reason for this is that these 20 provide all the chemical and size groups needed to make a very large number of proteins. These 20 different amino acids join up in a variety of ways to make approximately 250,000 different human proteins. The same amino acid can occur many times along a chain making up a specific protein.
