Amino Acids

Amino acids are organic compounds that combine to form proteins. Amino acids and proteins are the building blocks of life. When proteins are digested, amino acids are left. The human body needs a number of amino acids to break down food. Amino acids need to be eaten in large enough amounts for optimal health.

Amino acids are classified into three groups:

  • Essential: Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body, and must be supplied by food.
    The nine essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.
  • Nonessential: Nonessential amino acids are made by the body from essential amino acids or in the normal breakdown of proteins.
    They include: alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, and glutamic acid.
  • Conditional: Conditional amino acids are usually not essential, except in times of illness and stress.
    They include: arginine, cysteine, glutamine, tyrosine, glycine, ornithine, proline, and serine.

Alanine

Alanine is a nonessential amino acid, meaning it can be manufactured by the human body, and does not need to be obtained directly through the diet. Alanine is found in a wide variety of foods, but is particularly concentrated in meats.
Good sources of alanine include

  • Animal sources: meat, seafood, caseinate, dairy products, eggs, fish, gelatin, lactalbumin
  • Vegetarian sources: beans, nuts, seeds, soy, whey, brewer's yeast, brown rice, bran, corn, legumes, whole grains.

Alanine plays a key role in maintaining glucose levels in the body by helping the body to convert glucose into energy. Alanine also eliminates excess toxins from the liver.

Alanine and Hypertension

An international study led by Imperial College London found a correlation between high levels of alanine and higher blood pressure, energy intake, cholesterol levels, and body mass index.
