Code Component Organ or System Involved Description Comments
AA1 Arginine Stimulates human growth hormone which stimulates defence function; accelerates wound healing; detoxifying ammonia; normal sperm count; glucose control mechanism in blood; enhances fat metabolism; involved in insulin production; arthritis; inhibition of tumour development; premature ageing; overweight; fatigue; memory. essential for children but not for adults
AA2 Aspartic Acid liver, intestine Protects liver; detoxification of ammonia; promotes uptake of trace elements in the gut; involved in the energy cycle; involved in transportation of magnesium and potassium to cells; fatigue. non-essential
AA3 Carnitine heart Sperm motility; protects heart; major role in transferring fatty acids into cells where used as energy sources; mobilising fatty deposits in obesity; removal of ketones from blood; reduction of triglycerides in the blood; reduces surface fats in cellulite; circulatory problems; fatigue; muscle weakness; alcohol damage to liver; glucose tolerance in diabetics; cardiac disease; angina. non-essential
AA4 Citrulline immune Can be made from ornithine by body; can be converted in body to arginine; detoxifies ammonia (nitrogen) in blood; fatigue; stimulates immune system. non-essential; not part of body protein
AA5 Cyseine liver Derived from methionine or serine in the liver; powerful antioxidant; major detoxifying agent; part of glucose tolerance factor; using B6; strength of hair; factor in insulin production; most chronic diseases; removing heavy metals; protects against alcohol, cigarette smoking and pollution; in iron deficiency; prevention of cataracts. non essential
AA6 Cystine Part of insulin molecule; heavy metal chelator; psoriasis; eczema; tissue healing after surgery. non-essential
AA7 Glutamine brain Dominant amino acids in cerebro-spinal fluid and serum; passes through blood/brain barrier; powerful "brain fuel"; gives rise to GABA which is a calming agent; helps maintain body's nitrogen level; used in production of other non-essential amino acids; protects from alcohol; reduces desire for alcohol and sometimes sugar; heals peptic ulcers; depression; blunts carbohydrate craving; hypoglycaemia; schizophrenia; senility; fatigue; memory improvement; concentration; smoking. non-essential
AA8 Glutathione liver Inhibits free radical damage to fat cells; retards ageing process; neutralises petro-carbons and chlorine; detoxifying; in short supply in diabetics; protects liver against alcohol; protects against radiation; chelates heavy metals; regression of tumours in animals; arthritis; skin problems. non-essential
AA9 Histidine nerve, blood, stomach Metabolised into histamine which is important for smooth muscle function and contraction and expansion of blood vessels; sexual arousal; auditory nerve function; stimulates production of red and white blood cells; schizophrenia; protects against radiation damage; chelates toxic metals; rheumatoid arthritis; digestive tract ulcers; nausea during pregnancy; hearing problems; allergies; anxiety; low stomach acid; smoking. non-essential
AA10 Isoleucine Chronically sick; formation of haemoglobin; energy production; reduces tremors and twitching in animals; body building. essential
AA11 Leucine Chronically sick; essential for growth; wound healing of skin and bones; energy production; Parkinsonís disease; enhances effects of endorphins. essential
AA12 Lysine Often low in vegetarian diets; important for children's growth and development; involved in synthesis of carnitine, so important in fat metabolism; formation of antibodies; dietary deficiency leads to increased calcium excretion; herpes simplex; concentration; fatigue; dizziness; anaemia; visual disorders; nausea; hypoglycaemia. essential
AA13 Methionine gallbladder, liver Antioxidant preventing free radical damage; helps produce choline, adrenaline, lecithin and B12; assists gallbladder function; precursor of taurine, cystine and cysteine. Heavy metal and histamine detoxifier; strengthens hair follicles; detoxifies liver; affects selenium bio-availability; arthritic and rheumatoid symptoms; detoxification; antioxidation; retards cataracts; Parkinsonís disease; schizophrenia; gallbladder problems resulting from use of contraceptive oestrogen; poor skin tone; hair loss; anaemia; retarded protein synthesis; atherosclerosis; herpes; memory; premature ejaculation. essential
AA14 Ornithine pituitary, immune Stimulates growth hormone production by pituitary gland; increases metabolism of fat and enhances transportation of amino acids to cells; ammonia detoxification in urea cycle; enhances wound healing; stimulates immune system; may be useful in auto-immune diseases; memory. non-essential
AA15 Phenylalanine heart, brain, throid Precursor of tyrosine and therefore dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline) and epinephrine (adrenaline), so affects heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen consumption, blood sugar levels, fat metabolism; important for brain; necessary for thyroid; shortage predisposes children to eczema; weight control; antidepressant; pain killer; MS; Parkinsonís disease; memory; concentration and mental alertness; rheumatoid arthritis; vitiligo; emotional disorders; circulatory problems; drug addiction; tremors. essential
AA16 Taurine heart, gallbladder, immune Interacts with bile salts to maintain their solubility and cholesterol; helps conserve potassium and calcium in the heart muscle; influences insulin and blood sugar levels; increase needed under stress; helpful in some types of epilepsy; gallbladder disease; eye problems; atherosclerosis; angina; circulation; tremors; compromised immune function; claimed to enhance IQ in Downs syndrome children. non-essential
AA17 Threonine teeth, liver, immune, thymus, intestine Necessary for formation of teeth enamel protein, elastin and collagen; minor role controlling fat build up in liver; precursor of glycine and serine; immune stimulating as promotes thymus growth and activity; digestive and intestinal tract functioning; indigestion; malabsorption; irritability; personality disorders. essential
AA18 Tryptophan Synthesis of B3; precursor of serotonin; mood stabiliser; vascular migraine, anti?depressant; weight control; sleep enhancer; menopausal depression; pain killer; restless leg syndrome; rheumatoid arthritis; tardive dyskinesia; mental disturbances, depression, brittle finger nails; poor skin colouring and tone; indigestion; carbohydrate craving. May aggravate bronchial asthma and lupus. essential
AA19 Tyrosine thyroid, brain Derived from phenylalanine; precursor of thyroid hormones, dopa, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine; aids normal brain function; Parkinsonís disease; depression; increasing brain neurotransmitter levels; alleviating hay fever and grass allergies; drug addiction; tremors; low blood pressure. non-essential
AA20 Valine nerve, muscle, liver, gallbladder, skin Helpful in treating addictions; deficiency may affect myelin covering of nerves; energy; muscle building and co?ordination; liver and gallbladder disease; mental function; nervousness; poor sleep patterns; excess gives skin crawling sensations and hallucinations. essential
