The Eight Essential Amino Acids
Valine – an important source of nitrogen, an
important component in alanine
glutamine synthesis in the muscles.
Isoleucine – an indispensible part of man’s diet
and that lack of it can lead to serious negative
nitrogen balance more seriously than
experience with other amino acids.
• It regulates blood sugar and boosts the body’s
energy level;
• Plays a key role in the transport of oxygen
from the lungs to the various parts of the
body and the protection of haemoglobin, the
part of the blood that contains iron;
• It is important in the efficient metabolism of
glucose as manifested by the increase in the
absorption of sugar;
• Reduces the level of sugar in the blood by 20
% and increase sugar absorption in the muscle
by 17 % without necessarily increase the level
of insulin in the body.
Leucine – leucine is the branched chain of
amino acid that plays a major role in the
production of proteins.
 Leucine is the great energy source especially
during intense athletic performance and other
extreme physical activities. It protects you
from getting tired easily during exercise and it
regulates your glucose level.
 It can be used for losing weight because it has
ability to dissolve visceral fat, the kind of fat
found in the deepest layer of the skin that
does not respond to the usual weight loss
exercises or non-surgical procedures.
– phenylalanine is the
forerunner of tyrosine, the anti-depressant
dopamine norepinephrine, epinephrine and
the skin pigment, melanin. Eating foods rich
in phenylalanine will help.
 Prevent mood swing, help you out of
lethargy, sluggishness, feelings of low morale
and anxiety. It relieves pain and fights
 Its pain-relieving property can be attributed
to its ability to block the enzyme
carboxypeptidase that causes enkephalin
Threonine – is an important ingredient in the
formation of bones cartilages, hair teeth and
nails. The mucin content in threonine, serine
and proline which account for 20% to 55% of
the total amino acid content in the intestines
is responsible for this activity.
 Threonine is responsible for the growth and
development of liver muscles, skeletal muscles
and small intestines of young animals.
 Threonine may also prevent cancer. This
occurs the process of phosphorylation which
usually occurs on threonine, serine, and
tyrosine residues.
Tryptophan – is a sleep-inducing amino acid which
is an important component in the production of
serotonin, vitamin B3 or niacin, and auxin (a plant
hormone). It is the tryptophan content that’s make
you sleeps. This is attributed to the high serotonin, (a
neurotransmitter that’s calm the brain) and the high
melatonin (a sleep-inducing hormone) levels in the
brain when substantial amount of typtophancontaining foods have been eaten.
 Tryptophan is also used to treat seasonal affected
disorder or SAD and premenstrual disorder, diseases
associated with low levels of serotonin in the brain;
 Prevents the development of bladder cancer.
Methionine – is one of two sulfur-containing
proteinogenic amino acids. Methionine is
important in the manufacture of cycteine,
carnitine, taurine, lecithin, phosphadylcholine,
and other phospholiphides. Improper
conversion of methionine can lead to
o Methonine is used to treat diseases of the
liver especially those caused by carbon
tetrachloride and arsenic.
o Methionine is also known possess the ability
to minimize the spread of the flu virus by
inhibiting their further proliferation in the
Lysine – is a key component is the production
of hormones and enzymes and plays an
important role in collagen production, a
substance that is critical in bone muscle,
cartilage, and skin formation.
 Lysine plays a key role in calcium absorption
by reducing the amount of calcium being
excreted in the urine.
 It promotes the growth of hair, nails, teeth
and bones. It also prevents bone loss that
leads to osteoporosis.
 It also prevents the occurrence of herpes
simplex infections, or cold sores.
They are called essential amino acids not
because they are more important than other
amino acids but because it is essential that
they are included in the daily diet since they
are not produced naturally by the body.
Is a substance found in the cell walls of
certain seaweed species that is used
medicinally for a wide variety of health
 Fucoidan have been more widely
studied for their ability to heal and
protect the body from acute illness such
as virus to chronic illness like cancer.
 Fucoidan may benefit people under
stress or at risk of liver cirrhosis.
Are large seaweeds (algae) belonging to
the brown algae (Phaeophyceae) in the
order Laminariales.
 Kelp is a major source of iodine- a
necessary mineral in our bodies. The
thyroid gland, for example, needs iodine
to do its work properly. Yet most of us
are iodine deficient.
 Help with the detoxification of the body which
can in turn help to prevent health problems
whilst making you feel rejuvenated.
 An Immune booster, kelp extract can also help to
improve the effectiveness of the immune system.
 Kelp can also help to prevent early loss of
elasticity of the skin and therefore keep skin
looking firmer and younger for longer.
 Kelp is especially important in terms of women’s
health as it is rich in iron, potassium and calcium,
all useful for women of all ages, during
menstruation, pregnancy and for new Mums.
 Kelp extract also contains large
amounts of folic acid. Research
shows that alongside cardiovascular
benefits, folic acid is also essentials
for the healthy development of
babies during pregnancy and folic
acid deficiencies in pregnant women
causes an increased risk of birth
Moringa Oleifera is planted throughout the
Philippines in settled areas at low and
medium altitudes. Scientific research has
proven that these humble leaves are in
fact a powerhouse of nutritional value.
Ounce per ounce, it has the calcium of
four glasses of milk, the vitamin C of
seven oranges and the potassium of
three bananas.
 It can rebuild weak bones and nourish
Breakfast babies
 Effective against CANCER, and AMEMIA
Has antibiotic properties against skin
 Doctors use it to treat DIABETES in West
 HIGH BLOOD pressure in India
Is a natural sweetener derived from leaf plant.
It’s 300x as sweet as sugar, so it only takes a
small amount to produce the same sweet
taste as cane sugar.
A no-carb, no-calorie substitute
For those watching their carbohydrate or caloric
intake, stevia is both carb- and calorie-free.
This makes it possible for dieters to satisfy
sweet cravings without wrecking their eating
Lowers Blood Pressure
Stevia has been shown, in some studies, to lower
blood pressure. This makes it an ideal sweetener
for people with high blood pressure.
Lower Blood Sugar
For people with blood sugar levels, Stevia has the
possible benefits of lowering sugar levels. This
make it a possibly acceptable substance for
anyone with blood sugar or insulin problems,
including diabetics. However, diabetics should
continue to monitor their blood sugar levels and
insulin levels after using Stevia to make sure
everything remains in check.
Has Antibacterial Properties
Stevia, when used orally, has shown
antibacterial properties. This makes it an
ideal ingredient in toothpaste and
mouthwashes, as it can aid in fighting
cavities and gingivitis. It has shown the
same properties when used topically, and
has been used as an ointment in the
treatment of eczema and acne.
Aids in Calcium Formation
Some studies, conducted on chicken
eggshells, have shown that chickens who
are fed a preparation laced with Stevia
lays eggs with significantly tougher shells.
This suggests that Stevia aids in calcium
formation, which would be an ideal side
effect particularly for women and
children with growing bones.
