Fact About Protein Amino Acids provides the benefits, food sources, deficiency-toxicity symptoms, and supplement recommendations for the 22 amino acids needed by the body.

Fact About Protein-Amino Acids

Protein is essential for human life.  Originally thought to be so available from the average diet, protein deficiency was considered virtually impossible.  Now, however, many physical and mental illnesses have been associated with protein deficiencies.  Of the 22 amino acids (proteins) needed by the body, only 8 are considered essential for us to obtain from our diet. The others are manufactured by the body from the first eight...assuming the body is working properly.  In some cases, supplementation of even the non-essential amino acids has proven very effective to combat some illnesses.

To share information about the benefits-uses, food sources, deficiency-toxicity symptoms and supplement recommendations for amino acids, we've produced the following pages:

Protein-Amino Acid Supplements: 

When choosing protein supplements, check with your doctor to make sure the specific proteins/amino acids won't worsen any health condition you have and won't interact with any medicine you're taking.  Always make sure the supplement uses vegetable sources.  Monitor for allergic reactions and side effects and discontinue use immediately until you've determined the cause.
