The Function of Amino Acids



Amino acid is an important part of the organisms, plays an important role in life. Along with the progress of the biological sciences and further understanding of the physiological function and metabolic activity of organism, the importance of biological function of amino acid becomes more and more obvious. Amino acid is the nutrition of living organism, and is extremely important to the survival and development of life. It is vital in the aspect of the substance metabolism regulation and information transfer of organisms.

Lets take L-lysine as an example. L-lysine is an important and indispensable component of proteins. As previously mentioned, it plays a role in the production of carnitine and collagen. Its benefits include:
* Promotes normal growth and development by increasing collagen formation
* Supports the production of other proteins like enzymes, antibodies and hormones
* Promotes bone health by increasing calcium absorption; prevents osteoporosis or weak bones by reducing bone loss
* Helps convert fatty acids to energy, aiding in weight reduction
* Helps lower bad cholesterol levels, thus reducing the risk for heart disease
* Promotes skin health through increased collagen formation
* May be used to treat viral infections like herpes simplex, cold sores, shingles, human papilloma virus (HPV) infection such as genital warts, and genital herpes
* Can relieve migraines and other types of pain and inflammation
* When taken with other nutrients like vitamin C, it can reduce chest pains (angina) related to heart disease
* Helps in muscle building, when taken with other amino acids like arginine.


The establish of Nitrogen Balance Theory and the discovery that the deficiency of some kind of amino acid will lead to organism metabolic disorder make amino acids an important drug to maintain bodys nutrition, as well as the treatment of many diseases.

Actually, the application of amino acid in the medicine takes a relatively low proportion of the whole usages of amino acids, but the varieties of which must be the largest. For now, the varieties of amino acids and amino acids derivatives been applied to medicine are over 100. Let's take an application of mino acid in the medicine for exmaple.

The compound crystalline aminophenol transfusion is a kind of intravenous fluids compounded by different kinds of amino acids according to certain proportion and request. The aminophenol transfusion can be classified to different types according to the different modes.
Aminophenol transfusion, as a kind of intravenous fluids,is to supplement protein for organisms. The composition and ratio varies with the different modes. For example, WUJ-N mode, the FAO ideal model, the FAO/WHO reference model and so on.

For now, amino acid has been used as human nutrition additive, flavor agent, feed additives, pharmaceutical, pesticide, etc in many areas such as the food industry, agriculture, animal husbandry and human health, health care and so on. People have great interest in the functions of amino acids. They can be widely used in medicine, food, animal husbandry, fishery, pesticides, cosmetics, health products and other fields.In the future, amino acid will be found out more functions in more areas.
