Thank you very much for your quick answer
That`s all I want to hear
Duggie is doing great
I am very sorry, I should have told you about the amino acids, carnitine and taurine
Take them always on a empty stomach and apart from each other,this is to avoid the amino acid competition.
Some extra info for Douglas,
Protein is not just important, it is essential. Every single cell in your body is is made up of protein. Brain cells, for example, are 10 percent protein. Muscle and red blood cells have as much as 20 percent. Overall, protein is the second largest building material of the human body (preceded only by water) comprising approximately 15% by weight.
To keep your cells alive, you must give them protein all the time. Even though it is not a superb source of energy, like carbohydrates and fats, you need protein and specific amino acids to keep the body alive.
But not all proteins are the same. Made of amino acids linked together in long chains, some proteins can be made in the body and some should be consumed through the diet. What differs one protein from another is their amino acid content. There are about 28 commonly known amino acids which mix up and twist together in many different ways making between 10 000 and 50 000 different kinds of protein in the body.
What Are Amino Acids
The body cannot directly use proteins found in food and must break these down into smaller units, known as Amino Acids. Proteins consist of chains of hundreds or thousands of amino acids joined with peptide bonds. When you eat protein-rich foods, the bonds linking the amino acids together are broken by digestive juices and enzymes into isolated amino acids. Only after this process is complete, your cells inside the digestive tract can absorb the nutrients and make them usable for the body.
Think of it as a jigsaw puzzle - protein is the puzzle and amino acids are the pieces that make it. If one or more pieces are missing, you can't see the beauty of the picture. Same thing with protein - unless all amino acids are supplied through the diet, your body cannot make up proteins so imperative in optimal growth of new healthy cells.
The body can't store amino acids and will break down it's own protein sources, including healthy muscle and organ tissues, to meet its need for amino acids. If you want to keep your brain, muscles, bones, joints, all internal organs, even blood and lymph performing their functions, you should constantly provide amino acids from a well-balanced diet.
Out of 22 amino acids required for proper body functioning and optimal health, your body can make 10-12 in sufficient amounts from glucose and other proteins. These are called non-essential and include alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, and tryptophan.
The rest of them have to be supplied through your diet as your body is not designed to make them, hence the name "essential amino acids". These are tryptophan, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, valine, leucine, and isoleucine. Their function is to serve as nitrogen donors to make other amino acids and supply the most important structural material for the new cells to develop and replace the old ones.
Semi-essential amino acids are arginine and histidine and the need for these increases if they get depleted at times of stress. Usually adults can make enough of these to maintain normal balance, just like nonessential amino acids. But children, those injured, ill, and even elderly need additional amounts to support muscle tissue growth due to higher metabolic demands.
What Do Amino Acids Do
Besides building cells and repairing tissue, amino acids form antibodies to combat invading bacteria and viruses, comprise the enzyme and hormonal systems, build nucleoproteins (RNA & DNA), carry oxygen throughout the body, and are part of all metabolic processes in the body.
It's not the quantity of protein you take, but the quality and ratio of amino acids that keeps the body healthy and stable. The body can make 40,000+ proteins from essential amino acids, but it can only make as much as allowed by the least amino acid present in the body. For example, if one amino acid is only present at the 60% level the assimilation of all amino acids will be limited to that 60% level. This is called rate limiting and it makes balancing amino acid metabolism, using food protein, more difficult.
