Amino Acids for Better Health


Protein plays a crucial role in almost all biological bodily processes, and amino acids are the building block protein. Hence, amino acids are at the basis of all life processes. They are absolutely necessary for and essential for nearly all metabolic processes and henceforth growth and maintenance of our bodily functions. Two of their most important roles in our day-to-day lives include storage and optimal transport of all nutrients. Their function ranges from repairing tissues and healing wounds, to removal of waste deposits produced during metabolism. As western sciences and Chinese herbalism have found, various health issues can be traced to a disturbance or problem in one's metabolic systems. The effects range from hair loss to premature aging. Hence, it becomes crucial that our body is consistently provided and nourished with a supply of amino acids.

Though the two schools of thought have worked on a similar issue, both have worked on it through different philosophies and hence have developed different remedies for overcoming the deficiency of this crucial element in our diets. Given our modern lifestyles, and poor quality of diet, this intake is not possible without supplementation of amino acids. Where the western science has developed synthetic methods of administering and providing for this essential nutrient through our diet, Chinese herbalism has characterized various herbs and developed herbal formulas for increasing consumption of amino acids from foods by focusing on harmonizing and strengthening various internal systems. This is in line with the basic philosophy underlying all endeavors of Chinese herbalists: that a disruption of Qi-energy and consequent imbalance in the body's Yin/Yang is the root cause of our body's failure to work efficiently. Chinese herbal formulas have proven themselves as one of the best natural alternatives for meeting your daily intake of amino acids.
