The Importance of Amino Acids

Why We Need Amino Acid Supplementation:
Many people cannot utilize their dietary protein, instead convert it to sugars for fuel, or to fat for storage. This is due to lack of nutrition, malabsorption and exposure to toxic metals (silver amalgam dental fillings, vaccinations, lead paint, and a wide variety of industrial products).
Inhibiting protein breakdown causes inadequate nutrient absorption & toxin elimination. This wreaks havoc on your immune system, resulting in pain and many chronic & degenerative diseases.
Amino acids have to be first digested before they can be assimilated. Amino Acids are broken down in the stomach by pepsin, which is converted from pepsinogen by lowering the pH of the stomach with hydrochloric acid.
If the pH of the stomach doesn’t lower to around 2.5, the first stage of protein breakdown fails.
The semi-digested food moves to the small intestine where a pancreatic enzyme named trypsin, along with other proteases (protein-breaking enzymes) breaks down the protein further. The above are all the stages of digestion.
The next important phase is assimilation. Intestinal villi (the little finger-like projections in the small intestine that are responsible for assimilation) shrink in response to stress. Stressed people don’t assimilate food – of any kind.
The only known substance that will rejuvenate the small intestinal villi is the amino acid L-Glutamine, which turns into glutamic acid to cross the blood-brain barrier where it is converted into glutamate (the most stimulatory neurotransmitter in the brain) and eventually breaks down into GABA (the most inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain).
Living in our industrialized society presents a large number of potential problems that inhibit protein digestion, leading to amino acid deficiency: HCl, proteases, L-Glutamine and others, all of which can slow or stop digestion and assimilation.
