How and When Are Glutamic and Aspartic Acid Good For You?

Both are amino acids. In general amino acids are critical to life. They are the building blocks of proteins, which are nothing more than linear chains of amino acids. Twenty-two amino acids form the polypeptides that are known as the “essential” and “nonessential” amino acids.  The essential amino acids cannot be created from other compounds but must be taken in as food by humans. Essential Nonessential Isoleucine Alanine Leucine Asparagine Lysine Aspartic Acid Methionine Cysteine* Phenylalanine Glutamic Acid Threonine Glutamine* Tryptophan Glycine* Valine Proline* Selenocysteine* Serine* Tyrosine* Arginine* Histidine* Ornithine* Taurine*   Glutamic Acid, which is the most abundant amino acid in the body, provides many health benefits in it’s naturally occurring state including: Increasing Protein synthesis which is needed ...

Regulating Our Glutamate Intake

The term “glutamate” refers to a number of forms of glutamic acid, an amino acid found naturally in many foods and in our bodies. It is a powerful excitatory neurotransmitter that is released by nerve cells in the brain. It is responsible for sending signals between nerve cells, and under normal conditions it plays an important role in learning and memory. There are two general ways, however, that glutamate can actually be damaging to nerve cells and the brain as a whole. First, there can be too much glutamate around; abnormally high concentrations of glutamate can lead to overexcitation of the receiving nerve cell. Second, the receptors for glutamate on the receiving nerve cell can be oversensitive so that less ...
