A5 Cyseine Non-essential. Derived from methionine or serine in the liver; powerful antioxidant; major detoxifying agent; part of glucose tolerance factor; using B6; strength of hair; factor in insulin production; most chronic diseases; removing heavy metals; protects against alcohol, cigarette smoking and pollution; in iron deficiency; prevention of cataracts. A6 Cystine Non-essential. Part of insulin molecule; heavy metal chelator; psoriasis; eczema; tissue healing after surgery. A7 Glutamine Non-essential. Dominant amino acids in cerebro-spinal fluid and serum; passes through blood/brain barrier; powerful "brain fuel"; gives rise to GABA which is a calming agent; helps maintain body's nitrogen level; used in production of other non-essential amino acids; protects from alcohol; reduces desire for alcohol and sometimes sugar; heals peptic ulcers; depression; blunts carbohydrate craving; hypoglycaemia; schizophrenia; senility; fatigue; memory improvement; concentration; smoking. A8 Glutathione Non-essential. Inhibits free radical damage to fat cells; retards ageing process; neutralises petro-carbons and chlorine; detoxifying; in short supply in diabetics; protects liver against alcohol; protects against radiation; chelates heavy metals; regression of tumours in animals; arthritis; skin problems. A9 Histidine Non-essential. Metabolised into histamine which is important for smooth muscle function and contraction and expansion of blood vessels; sexual arousal; auditory nerve function; stimulates production of red and white blood cells; schizophrenia; protects against radiation damage; chelates toxic metals; rheumatoid arthritis; digestive tract ulcers; nausea during pregnancy; hearing problems; allergies; anxiety; low stomach acid; smoking. A10 Isoleucine Essential. Chronically sick; formation of haemoglobin; energy production; reduces tremors and twitching in animals; body building; enhanced levels in pancreatic cancer. A11 Leucine Essential. Chronically sick; essential for growth; wound healing of skin and bones; energy production; Parkinson’s disease; enhances effects of endorphins; enhanced levels in pancreatic cancer. 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. A16 Taurine Non-essential. Interacts with bile salts to maintain their solubility and cholesterol; helps conserve potassium and calcium in the heart muscle; influences insulin and blood sugar levels; increase needed under stress; helpful in some types of epilepsy; gallbladder disease; eye problems; atherosclerosis; angina; circulation; tremors; compromised immune function; claimed to enhance IQ in Downs syndrome children. A17 Threonine Essential. Necessary for formation of teeth enamel protein, elastin and collagen; minor role controlling fat build up in liver; precursor of glycine and serine; immune stimulating as promotes thymus growth and activity; digestive and intestinal tract functioning; indigestion; malabsorption; irritability; personality disorders. A18 Tryptophan Essential. Synthesis of B3; precursor of serotonin; mood stabiliser; vascular migraine, anti-depressant; weight control; sleep enhancer; menopausal depression; pain killer; restless leg syndrome; rheumatoid arthritis; tardive dyskinesia; mental disturbances, depression, brittle finger nails; poor skin colouring and tone; indigestion; carbohydrate craving. May aggravate bronchial asthma and lupus. A19 Tyrosine Non-essential. Derived from phenylalanine; precursor of thyroid hormones, dopa, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine; aids normal brain function; Parkinson’s disease; depression; increasing brain neurotransmitter levels; alleviating hay fever and grass allergies; drug addiction; tremors; low blood pressure. A20 Valine Essential. Helpful in treating addictions; deficiency may affect myelin covering of nerves; energy; muscle building and co-ordination; liver and gallbladder disease; mental function; nervousness; poor sleep patterns; excess gives skin crawling sensations and hallucinations; enhanced levels in pancreatic cancer.

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.
