This is a great manual on how to use amino acid supplements and their co-factors for achieving wellness and combating aging. All the important areas are covered, like dosage, combinations, the exact vitamins and minerals to take at the same time, as well as foods that contain aminos.
The description of the metabolic pathways and how amino acids work are extremely interesting. Areas where amino acids can help are discussed under stress, anxiety, depression, immunity, cancer, heart disease, allergies, digestion, herpes, alcohol, smoking and looking and feeling young.
Perhaps the book is a bit outdated, since there is no mention of the wonderful amino NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine) that protects the lungs and mucous membranes and is especially recommended for smokers.
This book describes the types of illnesses that are the result of metabolic imbalances that can be rectified or improved with amino acid supplements. Unfortunately the author does not suggest how much or how often such supplements should be taken.
This book gives a good yet somewhat simplistic overview of using amino acids to improve your health. What you won’t get is an in-depth technical discussion of each of the individual amino acids. What you will get are some useful recommendations for which amino to take for certain conditions (ie. stress, depression, allergies, weight loss, etc.).
