Ultra-Carnitine 300 mg 60 Capsules

Ultra-Carnitine 300 mg 60 Capsules. WHAT IS CARNITINE? Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid metabolized from Lysine and Methionine (with Vitamins B-6 and C) and synthesized in the liver and kidneys. The food source is meat and milk and it is absent in strict vegetarian diets. Carnitine is a necessary component of heart and skeletal muscle tissue. It is involved in lipid metabolism and it functions to transport fatty acids across the inner mitochondrial membranes. This amino acid is also essential for brain cells and healthy neurological function and it promotes longevity by helping to provide cells with the necessary energy to function. Carnitine deficiencies are common and are evident in two types of conditions. Those in which Myopathy is involved note Carnitine deficiencies in muscles whereas systemic deficiencies are results of long term diseases such as renal failure and Reyes syndrome. Low levels of Carnitine have been also noted in patients with diabetes myocardial ischemia cancer and alcoholism. There are different types of Carnitine. Elemental (active) L-Carnitine Fumarate has an extra molecule of fumaric acid that helps maintain Krebs Cycle function and Acetyl-Carnitine crosses the blood brain barrier quickly and aids in neurological function. Carnitine supplementation results in increased plasma and tissue levels of Carnitine. CARNITINE AND HEART FUNCTION In healthy heart tissue Carnitine has adequate amounts to provide sufficient fatty acids which are the principal energy substrate of the heart. Carnitine levels decrease in patients with acute and chronic ischemic cardiopathy including angina pectoris myocardial infarction chronic coronary insufficiency as well as heart failure. This causes the heart to shift to Glucose metabolism to supply energy resulting in over-utilization of glycogen thus depleting glycogen stores which are necessary to supply emergency energy to the heart. Carnitine supplementation enables the facilitation of fatty acid oxidation preserving glycogen stores and restoring normal metabolic conditions to the heart.Supplementation of Carnitine to patients with angina pectoris may improve exercise tolerance help prevent arrhythmias and may be beneficial in patients with congestive heart failure as well. Carnitine supplementation may improve tachycardia and reduce signs and symptoms of ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease.CARNITINE ACETYL-CARNITINE AND BRAIN NEUROLOGICAL FUNCTION Carnitine and Acetyl-Carnitine are present in the grey matter of the central nervous system. Acetyl-Carnitine the Ester form of Carnitine is quickly absorbed into the brain and has significant effect on healthy neurological function especially on age-related changes on dopamine receptors and amino acid levels in the brain. Acetyl-Carnitine protects neurons against oxidative damage and may slow the progression of dementia in Alzheimers patients. Acetyl-Carnitine has a role in neuronal metabolism and increases neurotrophic f

Pure L-Citrulline 600 mg 100 Capsules

Pure L-Citrulline 600 mg 100 Capsules. WHAT IS CITRULLINE? Citrulline a non-essential amino acid synthesized in the intestinal tract from Glutamine converts to Arginine in a biochemical process involving Aspartic Acid and two necessary enzymes Ornithine Transcarbamoylase and Argininosuccinate Synthetase. As a precursor to Arginine it has a sparing effect on Arginine enabling an increase in Nitric Oxide production. Nitric Oxide (NO) is very important for endothelial support and cardiovascular health. Citrulline increases energy and stimulates the immune system as well. Citrulline is also an essential component of the Urea Cycle and functions along with Ornithine and Arginine to convert ammonia into Urea. High ammonia levels are extremely toxic and can cause liver damage and neurological impairment. Supplementation with Citrulline has been very beneficial in a genetic disorder called Ornithine Transcarbamoylase (OTC) Deficiency. CITRULLINE AND CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH Citrulline is a precursor to Arginine which has been shown to increase Nitric Oxide. Since up to 80% of Arginine is utilized in the liver and kidneys only 20 % is available for cardiovascular support. Supplementing with Citrulline produces a sparing effect allowing for additional Arginine production intracellularly for cardiovascular function. Nitric Oxide (NO) the endothelial relaxing factor (EDRF) is a small molecule made from Arginine. It plays an essential role in the regulation of vascular homeostasis modulates cardiac contractility regulates vascular tone and helps in preventing vessel injury and Atherosclerosis. Oxidative stress (free radicals damage) creates injury to endothelial cells. Citrulline converts to Arginine in the vascular cells and thus increases Nitric Oxide production which can help to restore endothelial cell function. The role of Nitric Oxide and Arginine supplementation as well as the role of Citrulline in endothelial function has been well-documented in medical studies. Dr. S. Gross (Cornell U. Med. College) in his publication in the J. Biol. Chem. 1997 suggests the ratio of 3 Arginine to 1 Citrulline for Nitric Oxide production. Those with active Herpes who need cardiovascular support should reverse the Citrulline/Arginine ratio to 3 Citrulline to 1 Arginine since Arginine can stimulate the Herpes and similar viruses. This ratio can help increase Arginine intracellularly. Lysine supplementation may also be advisable in some cases.ORNITHINE TRANSCAR BAMOYLASE (OTC) DEFICIENCY This is a serious genetic Urea Cycle disorder effecting an estimated 1 in 20000 births. Ornithine ranscarbamoylase is the second enzyme in the Urea Cycle and is necessary to produce Citrulline. A deficiency of this enzyme Pauses a lack of Citrulline thus the Urea Cycle cannot function properly and the result is hyperammonemia. It has been linked to SIDS deaths in newborns and Reye's syndrome in children since it is often undiagnosed. Symptoms of the neonatal onset disorder may appear in fir

Pure Taurine 500 mg 100 Capsules

Pure Taurine 500 mg 100 Capsules. WHAT IS TAURINE? Taurine is a sulfur amino acid that was originally named so since it was first isolated in the bile of an ox (Taurus). Present in high concentrations in mammals it is a conditionally essential amino acid in humans (and in cats) with many functions although it does not enter into protein synthesis. It is necessary in proper neonatal infant and child development and deficiencies in developmental stages may be the cause of epilepsy poor eyesight and other problems. Taurine is found in animal proteins primarily in meat and milk (and especially high in human nursing mother's milk). Because it is so important for human development some baby formulas are enriched with Taurine. It is synthesized from Methionine and Cysteine and Vitamin B-6 is necessary for proper metabolism however infants have a limited capacity to synthesize Taurine. A Pyridoxal 5'Phosphate (active B-6) deficiency decreases the amount synthesized and can cause low levels of Taurine. Zinc is also essential and a zinc deficiency is associated with an increased excretion of Taurine. They also work synergistically as antioxidants to protect cell membranes from free radical/ toxic damage. A deficiency of both may impair eyesight and low levels have been noted in epileptics. Since Taurine is not available in vegetable proteins strict vegetarians-may be low in this important amino acid.TAURINE AND HEART MUSCLE There is a high concentration of Taurine in cardiac muscle tissue and it controls the ionic (calcium/magnesium) flux helps to prevent potassium loss and has a protective function against myocardial injury and heart failure. It is involved with osmoregulation and regulates myocardial contractions. It also has both antiarrhythmic activity and hypotensive properties. Studies show that Taurine administered orally improves patients with congestive heart failure. ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES Taurine protects against damage to cells from toxic compounds including carbon tetrachloride hydrazine and 14-naphthoqunone. Low levels of Taurine may lead to liver damage from exposure to these chemicals. Taurine works along with Zinc in its antioxidant activities helping to trap hydroxy radicals and acting as a radioprotective mechanism in protecting healthy cell membranes from free radical damage.NEUROLOGICAL FUNTIONS Taurine is important for brain development and insufficient amounts in the growth stage may cause neurological problems later on. It is involved in the maintenance of cerebella function acts as a modulator of neuronal excitability and neurotransmitter function and has anticonvulsant properties. EPILEPSYTaurine like GABA provides neuroinhibitory activity to the Central Nervous System. Zinc and Taurine deficiencies have been noted in epileptics as well as low levels of GABA. Increasing Taurine levels may help diminish seizures in Epileptics as well as other seizure disorders. TAURINE AND BILE FUNCTION Taurine is a key component of bile which is n

Pure L-Threonine 500 mg 100 Capsules

Pure L-Threonine 500 mg 100 Capsules. WHAT IS THREONINE? Threonine is an essential amino acid and must be obtained through food source or supplementation since the body cannot synthesize it. It was the last amino acid identified in 1935 when it was determined to be a necessary component of protein biosynthesis and must be provided in the diet daily. Because of the importance of Threonine it is included in Montiffs All-Basic Gluca-Balance and Super-Sports Amino Acid Formulas. Only a small amount of Threonine is found in grains therefore Vegetarians and those on low protein diets may be deficient in this amino acid which is important for the Kreb's cycle and proper protein balance and function. Deficiencies may also result in irritability. Threonine has lipotropic functions and helps prevent a fatty buildup in the liver. It may have a beneficial effect on fatty livers which result from low protein diets and Methionine and Aspartic Acid have an effect on Threonine's role in this action. Threonine which is a precursor for Glycine is also found in the heart skeletal muscle and central nervous system. By aiding in the production of antibodies it enhances the immune system and it may also be beneficial to those with ALS and MS. THREONINE AND ALS (Amoytrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gherig's Disease) WHAT IS ALS ?Amoytrophic Lateral Scleroses (ALS) is a neurological and fatal disease afecting muscle control and exhibited by progressive symptoms including muscle weakness atrophy cramps spasticity and difficulty in swallowing and speaking. It is also known as Lou Gherig's Disease because this famous N.Y. Yankee first baseman contracted and succumbed to this debilitating neuro-muscular disease in 1941. ALS affects over 4000 people in the US yearly and usually presents in people between the ages of 40 and 70. Death generally occurs 2-4 years after the onset although 10% live over 5 years and 5% live 10 years or longer. In 1993 a faulty gene was identified as the apparent cause in some cases. This was linked to free radical damage causing a degeneration of an enzyme superoxide dismutase. In other cases it may be due to a genetic propensity causing a metabolic defect in the central nervous system affecting the motor neurons. Excessive excitatory amino acids especially aspartate and glutamate have been noted while a decrease in Glycine in the central nervous system has also been measured. Increasing Glycine levels in the CNS has been theorized to be beneficial; however administering Glycine is ineffective since it does not cross into the central nervous system. Since Threonine is a precursor to Glycine and may cross into the CNS supplementation of Threonine may be effective in reducing some symptoms. Pyridoxal 5'Phostphate is necessary for the conversion of Threonine to Glycine. THREONINE AND ITS EFFECT ON ALS Dr. B. Patten at Baylor Univ. College of Med. 1988 administered between 2-4 grams of Threonine to 15 patients daily for 10 months. Improvement occurred

Pure L-Lysine 500 mg 100 Capsules

Pure L-Lysine 500 mg 100 Capsules. WHAT IS LYSINE? Lysine an essential amino acid is found in muscle tissue. It promotes bone growth collagen production and is responsible for calcium absorption in the intestinal tract. Vitamins especially B-6 and Vitamin C are required for proper metabolism and conversion (with Methionine) into Carnitine. Although required by the body as an essential amino acid it cannot be manufactured within the body and must be obtained by consuming foods with Lysine or through supplementation. Many diets including strict vegetarian are low in Lysine. A proper ratio of 2 to 1 in relationship to Arginine levels is necessary for proper biochemical balance. Some of the foods high in Lysine are beef cottage cheese chicken tuna turkey and yogurt. There are small amounts in legumes and in some vegetables such as potatoes. Some foods high in Arginine are nuts seeds soy protein chocolate carob and coconut. Those consuming large amounts of these foods and small amounts of Lysine-rich foods may have a Lysine/Arginine imbalance. Lysine supplementation will help to correct this imbalance. Since Arginine stimulates the activity of the Herpes virus those with Herpes should restrict their consumption of these foods. Amino acid analysis of those with viruses such as Herpes Epstein Barr and Mononucleosis show low levels of Lysine with imbalances in the Lysine/Arginine ratios. Supplementation with Lysine increases blood plasma levels of Lysine. The higher levels of Lysine present in the plasma the lower the incidence of Herpes outbreaks. Studies show Lysine inhibits the growth of the Herpes Virus. Continued use of supplementation is essential since discontinuing Lysine can quickly result in Lysine imbalances and new outbreaks of the virus. Stress colds and sunlight can stimulate outbreaks therefore at these times (or if high Arginine foods are consumed) it is suggested that the dosage of L-Lysine be increased to maintain proper balance and help control the severity duration and recurrence of the outbreaks.WHAT IS HERPES? Herpes is a virus categorized into four types: HERPES SIMPLEX HERPES LABIALIS Type 1 (cold sores or fever blisters) causes unsightly lesions generally around the lips and mouth and can cause severe eye problems should the eye become infected. This is very common affecting 40-80% of the population with 50% of the population having frequent outbreaks. Sunlight wind stress fevers and diet can stimulate the outbreaks of these sores. It is highly contagious and direct contact can cause genital herpes as well. GENITIAL HERPES Type 2 are groups of blisters that rupture into painful ulcers or sores in the genital area and at least 1 out of 6 people in the U.S. over 15 are infected. Pain or tenderness in this area is often accompanied by headaches fever swollen glands in the groin and general malaise. It is transmitted through sexual contact and last from 1-3 weeks. The virus remains in the body and outbreaks can reoccur weeks months o

Pure L-Tyrosine 500 mg 100 Capsules

Pure L-Tyrosine 500 mg 100 Capsules. WHAT IS TYROSINE? Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid made from Phenylalanine in the body and found in foods such as lima beans pumpkinseeds almonds avocados bananas and dairy products. It is extremely important for neurological health since it is the precursor for catecholamine neurotransmitters in the brain. The biochemical conversion of Tyrosine is Dopa then Dopamine Norepinephrine and Epinephrine. Pyridoxal 5'PhosphatE the active form of B6 is necessary for this conversion. Low levels of Tyrosine in the blood show a direct correlation to depression and anxiety. Tyrosine is also a precursor to Thyroxine and aids in the production of melanin as well. Abnormal metabolism of Tyrosine is associated with Albinism since there is a deficiency of melanin production in this condition. TYROSINE AND DEPRESSION Tyrosine is the precursor for catecholamine neurotransmitters in the brain which effect mood. Deficiencies of Tyrosine can result in inadequate norepinephrine in the brain which causes depression. Many medical studies have confirmed that low levels of Tyrosine in the blood are associated with depression. Research has noted marked improvement in depressed individuals analogous to low catecholamine levels when given oral supplementation of Tyrosine. STRESS Reduced catecholamine levels have also been associated with behavioral changes related to stress. Research studies have documented that Tyrosine supplementation has resulted in decreased anxiety and improvement in mood in individuals experiencing stress. Studies further noted that Tyrosine supplementation improved other symptoms of stress including the ability to concentrate headaches and muscle discomfort. COCAINE ADDICTION The chronic use of cocaine interferes with catecholamine biochemistry in the brain causing a chemical imbalance by reducing Dopamine (DA) and Norepinephrine (NA) metabolism. These chemical imbalances are associated with the withdrawal symptoms of drug craving depression anxiety and irritability. Tyrosine levels are measurably low in those addicted to cocaine and supplementation of Tyrosine improves catecholamine biochemistry and assists in decreased symptoms of withdrawal. NARCOLEPSY Narcolepsy effecting over 250000 people in the U.S. is a sleeping disorder in which individuals fall asleep suddenly without any warning. This is extremely disconcerting and dangerous as well. Narcofepsy has been associated with a Dopamine abnormality and since the precursor to Dopamine is Tyrosine supplementation may be beneficial with this condition. In the studies conducted on those with this disorder there was significant improvement when Tyrosine was administered. Results were decreased when vitamin B-6 was included in the protocol indicating that Narcoleptics should not be given B-6 with Tyrosine. THYROXINE Tyrosine is the precursor for Thyroxine production by attaching to iodine atoms to form active thyroid hormones. Low levels of Tyrosine have been re

Gluca-Balance 710 mg 100 Capsules

Gluca-Balance 710 mg 100 Capsules. WHAT ARE GLYCOGENIC AMINO ACIDS? These are the amino acids that can be converted by the body into glucose to produce energy. The brain requires 125-150g or 75% of the available glucose in the body for its energy source to maintain normal brain metabolism. While many amino acids can be converted into glucose Alanine and Glutamine are the primary glycogenic amino acids. Because amino acids are converted into glucose at different rates a mixture of glycogenic amino acids permits the blood glucose levels to maintain over a longer period of time. Gluconeogenesis is the process of converting amino acids lactate and glycerol into glucose for the brain. Mainly this occurs in the liver although some gluconeogenesis also takes place in the kidneys. WHAT IS HYPOGLYCEMIA? This is a biochemical condition in which individuals have been known to have low plasma glucose levels of only 50 mg./dl. Hypoglycemics who are sensitive to carbohydrates generally exhibit symptoms such are lethargy hunger tachycardia and sweating 2-5 hours after a meal. Severe and chronic hypoglycemics may experience headaches blurred vision confusion and emotional or bizarre behavior. Since hypoglycemics have low blood sugar levels Gluca-Balance glycogenic amino acid formula is recommended to help increase and regulate their blood glucose levels. SOME BENEFITS OF GLUCA-BLANCE ARE:Nineteen of the 20 amino acids utilized in the body are glycogenic with some being more so than others. GLUCA-BALANCE provides a proper balance of the necessary amino acids to stimulate glycogenolysis gluconeogenesis and help support the liver brain and musculature.L-ALANINE: The primary glycogenic and glucogenic amino acid in the body. The liver has an enormous ability to utilize alanine for gluconeogenesis. L-GLUTAMINE: An important glycogenic amino acid and the most abundant amino acid in the blood. It is necessary for many functions including the primary precursor to glutamate one of two main excitatory neurotransmitters in the brain. It diminishes the craving for alcohol and sweets since it has an effect on the appetite center in the brain. Glutamine also supplies energy to the small intestines and is important for a proper immune system.GLYCINE: A glycogenic amino acid important for blood formation as well as being one of the main inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain. L-LYSINE: A glycogenic and ketogenic essential amino acid which is also essential for the urea cycle cholesterol metabolism may help suppress the herpes and other viruses and is a precursor to carnitine. L-LEUCINE L- ISOLEUCINE AND L-VALINE: are branched chain amino acids to meet musculature needs as well as for the liver and brain. L-TYROSINE AND L-PHENYLALANINE: support proper neurotransmitter activity and the adrenal glands when under stress.

Helping to maintain and protect liver function. i.e. synthesis of glutathione. Helping in the regeneration of the liver. Helping to permit a reduction in the length of hospital stays. Helping in the suppression of hypoglycemia in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM).Gluconeogenesis and Low Blood Sugar: Glutamine is a regulator of protein fatty acid and glycogen metabolism. Alanine and Glutamine are the primary glycogenic amino acids that regulate gluconeogenesis ( carbohydrate/sugar formation) in the liver. Intestinal Health:Two thirds of Glutamine is metabolized and utilized in the mucosal cells of the small intestine which is why it is so important in maintaining proper gastrointestinal function. It promotes intestinal healing and may have beneficial results in patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Immune System:Glutamine is necessary for the function of immunocompetent cells and enhances the immunity of the intestinal mucosa. It is the precursor to Glutathione a powerful antioxidant with detoxification properties which enhances the immune protective system of cells. Immune System:Glutamine is necessary for the function of immunocompetent cells and enhances the immunity of the intestinal mucosa. It is the precursor to Glutathione a powerful antioxidant with detoxification properties which enhances the immune protective system of cells.Glutamine and Neurological Health:Glutamine crosses the blood brain barrier and is the precursor to Glutamate and Glutamic acid which are excitatory neurotransmitters. It is also a precursor for GABA which acts as an inhibitory transmitter which induces a calming effect. Glutamic acid along with Glutamate provides glucose to provide energy for brain cells which requires 75% of the available glucose in the body for its energy source to maintain normal brain metabolism. Improvement of the Metabolic Systems (Stimulation of protein synthesis and improvement of nitrogen balance):Under conditions such as stress fasting surgery traumatic injury or sepsis increased degradation of proteins (mainly skeletal muscle proteins) tips the nitrogen balance in the negative direction. This negative nitrogen balance results in a rapid and marked decrease in muscle concentrations of glutamine: this is a characteristic of such stress conditions. ALaGLn has been reported to be effective in preventing a change in nitrogen metabolism under conditions of stress.Substitution for Alanine:Preventive effect against hypoglycemia in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM)Pharmacotherapy for IDDM (type 1 diabetes mellitus) includes intensive insulin therapy that sometimes causes hypoglycem

L-Tryptophan 500 mg 60 Capsules

L-Tryptophan 500 mg 60 Capsules. WHAT IS TRYPTOPHAN? Tryptophan an essential amino acid is the precursor to Serotonin which is a necessary neurotransmitter responsible for transmitting nerve impulses in the brain and inducing sleep and tranquility. Serotonin deficiencies which are related to Tryptophan deficiencies are welldocumented in cases of depression and insomnia. Tryptophan also converts to Niacin and Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxal 5Phophate) is necessary for Tryptophan metabolism and conversion to Serotonin. The dietary sources of Tryptophan are cottage cheese milk brown rice peanuts meat turkey and soy products. It is also available in supplemental form. Montiff supplies only the highest quality USP Tryptophan which is now available for professional use. Tryptophan is very important for biochemical balance of the brain and is very helpful for those with sleep deprivation anxiety and mood enhancement due to low Serotonin levels. It also helps to biochemically balance the brain in those whose Serotonin levels are low because of chemical addictions. It has also been effective in appetite control increasing pain tolerance and assisting those with jet lag.TRYPTOPHAN AND SLEEPSleep deprivation is a serious concern for many and low Serotonin levels are often the cause of this problem. Tryptophan converts to Serotonin helping to induce relaxation and naturally enhancing sleep. Two capsules 30 minutes prior to bedtime are recommended on an empty stomach with fruit juice or water. (No protein for 2- hours prior). Tryptophan can also be taken during the night. In extreme problems Tryptophan should be taken early evening and again at bedtime. Vitamin B-6 along with increasing dietary complex carbohydrates are important for proper metabolism and effectiveness. MOOD ENHANCEMENT It has been well documented that low Serotonin levels have been associated with depression. Tryptophan naturally converts to this neurotransmitter. If depression also involves Catecholamine biochemistry then taking Tryptophan in a regimen along with Tyrosine (Neuro-Balance) is recommended. They compete for uptake in the brain and because Tryptophan induces sleep it is recommended that Tryptophan be taken prior to dinner again prior to bedtime. Neuro-Balance should be taken prior to breakfast mid morning as well. PAIN TOLERANCE Increased Serotonin levels have an effect on increasing pain tolerance especially for chronic pain caused from arthritis and lower back problems. In one study Tryptophan was administered at the dose of 1-500mg. capsule every 2 hours (total 6 per day) resulting in a 50% reduction in pain intensity. A high carbohydrate diet is recommended to increase Tryptophan metabolism along with Vitamin B-6. D- Phenylalanine is also recommended in some cases to enhance results and supplementation with Montiff D-Phenyl-Relief is suggested. APPETITE CONTROL Some studies suggest that administering Tryptophan helps control appetite for those who are on a weight reduction program. C

Super-Sports 697 mg 200 Capsules. WHY ARE AMINO ACIDS NECESSARY FOR THE ATHLETE?. Amino acids are involved in a number of metabolic functions including protein synthesis. . The amount of protein synthesis that takes place during and after exercise is dependent on a complete compliment of amino acids including the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). . Taking amino acid supplements can increase protein synthesis and the anabolic effects of exercise. . Exercise also causes a rise in amino acid catabolism. Supplementing before and after the workout provides an additional amino acid pool to optimize the anabolic effects of the exercise. . Growth hormone is important for the athlete and this GH is effected by various amino acids including Tyrosine Ornithine and especially Arginine. . Sufficient amounts of amino acids are necessary for producing insulin like growth factor-1(IGF-1) which along with insulin (produced in the pancreas by amino acids) increases protein synthesis. . Amino acids especially Alanine Glutamine and Glycine produce glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis providing the constant source of energy required by the athlete. .

Pure D-Phenyl Relief 500 mg 50 Capsules

Pure D-Phenyl Relief 500 mg 50 Capsules. WHAT IS D-PHENYLALANINE? D-Phenylalanine is the Dextrorotatory form of the amino acid Phenylalanine. The L-forms (Levorotatory) of amino acids are ones that are bioavailable and are for protein synthesis and regulatory functions. They are like mirror images of one another however D-Phenylalanine is not absorbed into the body but acts as an inhibiting agent to the enzymes that are responsible for the breakdown of endorphins which control pain perception. WHAT ARE ENDORPHINS? Endorphins (and enkephalins) are naturally occurring opiate-like peptides which control pain perception and produce an analgesic effect. Their effects are only of a short duration because of metabolic enzymes especially Carboxypeptidase A which inhibit increased endorphin production. D-Phenylalanine prohibits these enzymes allowing increased endorphin production and prolonged and intensified analgesicaffects.HOW DOES D-PHENYLALANINE EFFECT PAIN? Low levels of endorphins have been noted in those suffering from chronic pain and supplementation with D-Phenlyalanine helped to increase these levels. By prohibiting Carboxypeptidase A from preventing endorphin production the body can continue to increase its own natural pain tolerance mechanism. In studies with chronic pain patients the pain threshold has been enhanced and prolonged. This has been effected with various chronic pain conditions including back pain and Osteoarthritis. D-PHENYLALANINE AND ACUPUNCTURE Pre-administration of D-Phenylalanine enhances the effects of acupuncture on back and other pain. Up to 2 grams 1 hour prior to acupuncture treatment may result in more pain relief and for longer periods of time. DENTAL PAIN Two grams of D-Phenylalanine has been given 1 hour prior to dental extractions increasing the pain threshold and for a prolonged period of time. WHY NOT DLPA (A COMBINATION OF BOTH D-PHENYLALANINE AND LPHENYLALANINE)? D- PHENYLALANINE is the form of Phenylalanine that effects endorphin production. LPhenylalanine has other functions in the body. Concentrations of the pure D-Phenylalanine will assist in pain tolerance to those needing this function. By combining the two the concentration of the effective forrr) of D-Phenylalanine would be less and therefore more would be required to achieve results. The Third World Congress on Pain recommended Phenylalanine and numerous medical studies have confirmed this recommendation. Some suggest that LPhenylalanine will stimulate catecholamine production for those whose pain causes depression. Since L-Phenylalanine ust convert to L-Tyrosine in the body in order to raise neurotransmitter levels it would be best to take Montiff Pure L-Tyrosine or Montiff Neuro-Balance with Tyrosine for this purpose. (In some rare forms of depression some patients have responded to DPhenylalanine and this form might be beneficial to those who are not responding to other therapies.) In addition L-PHENYLALANINE is not recommended for those with elev

Pure L-Leucine 500 mg 50 Capsules

Pure L-Leucine 500 mg 50 Capsules. WHAT ARE BRANCHED-CHAIN AMINO ACIDS (BCAAS)? Leucine Isoleucine and Valine branched-chain amino acids are essential amino acids and must be supplied by dietary protein or through supplementation. They make up 40% of human essential daily amino acids equirements and are necessary for protein synthesis as well as the synthesis of tricarboxylic acid cycle intermediates ketone bodies and fat and the metabolism and synthesis of glutamate glutamine and alanine. There is high activity of these amino acids in muscle tissue liver and kidneys. They have an anabolic and anticatabolic effect on muscles and are beneficial to athletes as well as those who have conditions that can cause muscle catabolism. Therefore branched-chain amino acids along with L-Glutamine are also recommended for post-surgical patients as well as bed-ridden patients and those with muscle wasting conditions. BCAAS AND ATHLETIC REQUIRMENTS Research indicates that athletes with high endurance exercise regimens as well as body builders have increased protein requirements. A sedentary person requires 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight whereas athletes who are striving to increase muscle mass require 1.4 to 1.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. Body builders at peak muscle mass production increase their needs to 2.0 as well as adolescent athletes involved in high intensity physical activity. Increased requirements for branched-chain amino acids compose a significant proportion of the additional protein needs. Whereas dietary means can supply protein to obtain optimal anabolic results supplementation with the branched-chain amino acids along with L-Glutamine will provide the necessary amino acids that are required for skeletal muscle synthesis. For dancers gymnasts and runners who have restricted caloric needs but increased protein requirements supplementation is a good choice to help provide these essential nutrients. Exercise and strong athletic activities increase protein degradation. Studies indicate that supplementation of branched-chain amino acids during exercise decreases this degradation. They may help improve performance and aid in the recovery and repair after intense athletic activity. Augmenting with branched-chain amino acids supplementation has been shown to increase overall body protein synthesis and enhance skeletal muscle. It is suggested that athletes and body builders take the branched-chain amino acids and L-Glutamine prior to and after the athletic workout or activity. L-ISOLEUCINE L- Isoleucine an essential amino acid and one of the branched-chain amino acids is necessary for the formation of hemoglobins as well as helping to stabilize blood sugar and energy levels. Low levels have been noted in hose with obesity chronic wasting diseases and chronic fatigue syndrome. Some dietary sources include nuts such as almonds and cashews as well as chicken liver fish and soy. It should be taken along with L-Leucine and L-Valine. L
