What happens if an essential amino acid is missing from the body? Well, in the beginning the body will break down lean tissue in order to compensate. Eventually, however, the muscles will begin to waste away. While protein deficiencies are rare in the United States, they are more common in countries with poor diets. In addition to muscle wasting, other signs of protein deficiency include mental impairment in children, edema, anemia, decreased immunity, and metabolic abnormalities.Bragg's Liquid Amino Acids are made from non-GMO soybeans. This is important to me because I figure that our Creator made things just the way we're supposed to be ingesting them. I'm not fond of eating things that have been tampered with because we humans "think" we can out do what's already done in nature. I think that's a terrible folly.
Amino Acids are the building blocks of all our organs and tissues. They are also the building blocks from which different food proteins are constructed. When we eat a protein food, such as meat or soybeans, the natural hydrochloric acid in the stomach digests the protein, releasing the Amino Acids. They are the link between the food we eat and assimilation for our body tissue. Lack of adequate Amino Acids may make it impossible for the vitamins and minerals to perform their specific duties.I took amino acids to alleviate the need for acid reflux medicines before starting this Protocol. If heartburn showed up, I'd pop two amino acid powder pills (it has these two amino acids in it: Arginine and Carnitine) and it would be gone inside of 15 minutes. I also used them to help balance digestive issues when I was detoxing. My Mom uses L-Lysine amino acids to ensure there aren't outbreaks of cold sores.
