Amino Acids

 

 

Through personal experience we know that nutritional supplements play a key role in any recovery plan for environmental illnesses. Important nutrients are depleted during any chronic illness but this seems to be especially true for environmental illness sufferers who have been shown to exhibit deficiencies of multiple vitamins, minerals and other nutrients including vital anti-oxidant molecules such as cysteine and glutathione. We've selected a number of products over a range of categories that we recommend based on both personal experience, recommendation by leading physicians and review of clinical studies.

Jarrow Formulas L-Glutamine Free Form Amino Acid -- 1000 G
Jarrow Formulas L-Glutamine Free Form Amino Acid -- 500 G

 

Manufacturer:
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is involved in many metabolic processes. Skeletal muscles are the primary sites of glutamine concentration. Glutamine protects muscle tissue and supports immune function during periods of immune and muscle stress. Glutamine supplementation supports protein synthesis as well as the rate of glycogen production (by serving as a carbon donor).Glutamine supports integrity of intestinal mucosal cells and nucleotide synthesis by lymphoyctes.
Jarrow Formula's L-Glutamine is produced by biological fermentation and is USP/FCC grade, made in Japan. This product is 100% L-Glutamine and contains no other substance.

The Environmental Illness Resource:
L-Glutamine is extremely important for healing a leaky gut in dosages of 10g or more per day. It is one of the three amino acid components of glutathione, the body's primary anti-oxidant and detoxification enzyme. L-glutamine is used to maintain the pH of the body fluids so can become depleted in states of acidosis as is common in people with environmental illnesses.

Jarrow Formulas Acetyl L-Carnitine -- 250 mg - 120 Capsules

Jarrow Formulas Acetyl L-Carnitine -- 250 mg - 120 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
Acetyl L-Carnitine is a more bioavailable form of L-Carnitine and is involved in many metabolic functions. As an antioxidant, acetylcarnitine can protect neurons from damage caused by superoxide radicals. Acetylcarnitine is involved in other aspects of neuronal metabolism because its molecular structure resembles the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Acetylcarnitine supplementation supports energy utilization by its effects on fatty acid metabolism in the mitochondria.
L-CarniPure® Acetyl L-Carnitine is manufactured by Lonza, the industry leader, offering the finest L-Carnitine in the world.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
L-carnitine has a range of actions that may be of particular benefit to environmental illness sufferers. The acetyl form is seen as the most bioactive and hence potent form. A major benefit of L-carnitine supplementation may be increased energy levels due to its involvement with the metabolism of protein, carbohydrate and especially fats. Something we're sure all those with environmental illness would be glad of! Another major benefit is the fact that this amino acid supports the action of glutathione, the body's primary anti-oxidant. Glutathione has consistently been shown to be low in the whole range of environmental illnesses. Furthermore, L-carnitine may improve mood and memory through its action within the brain, reducing feelings of brain fog and those embarrassing and frustrating occassions when you can't remember the simplest things.

Life Extension N-Acetyl-Cysteine -- 600mg - 60 Capsules

Life Extension N-Acetyl-Cysteine -- 600mg - 60 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
L-cysteine is a conditionally essential amino acid, one of only three sulfur-containing amino acids, the others being taurine (which can be produced from L-cysteine) and L-methionine from which L-cysteine can be produced in the body by a multi-step process. Cysteine plays a role in the sulfation cycle, acting as a sulfur donor in phase II detoxification and as a methyl donor in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Cysteine also helps synthesize glutathione, one of the body’s most important natural detoxifiers. N-acetyl-cysteine is the acetylated form of L-cysteine, which is more efficiently absorbed and used.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
Oxidative stress and low glutathione levels have been shown in multiple studies to play a role in environmental illnesses. Glutathione levels are dependant upon L-cysteine and N-Acetyl-Cysteine is known to raise glutathione levels more than L-cysteine and even glutathione itself when taken orally. Maintaining glutathione levels and reducing oxidative stress are very important in the treatment of environmental illnesses and NAC has proven itself as a powerful anti-oxidant.

Life Extension Taurine -- 1000 mg 50 Capsules

Life Extension Taurine -- 1000 mg - 50 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid produced from cysteine by the body and found abundantly in the body, particularly throughout the excitable tissues of the central nervous system, where it is thought to have a regulating influence. However, taurine is deficient in many diets and may not be sufficiently produced by the body in certain disease states.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
As with other sulfur containing amino acids such as cysteine and methionine, taurine is important for detoxification and acts as an anti-oxidant. As such, it has been shown to protect cell membranes from free-radicals. Since oxidative stress (an excess of free radicals) is commonly seen in environmental illnesses and seen as a major part of the pathology, taurine supplements may help to reduce the damage from free radicals and lessen symptoms that may be occuring as a result. Taurine can not be made in the body so must be aquired from the diet, making supplementation even more important.

Source Naturals SAMe -- 400 mg - 30 Enteric Coated Tablets

Source Naturals SAMe -- 200 mg - 60 Enteric Coated Tablets

 

Manufacturer:
Source Naturals SAMe is a stable, bioavailable form of S-adensoyl-L-methionine. These tablets are enteric coated and blister packed to prevent breakdown and inactivation of the ingredients. Studies show that SAMe helps support a positive outlook. It is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, where it affects the synthesis and activation of various proteins, such as neurotransmitters. SAMe also plays a role in transmethylation. Transmethylation reactions affect the synthesis, activation, and metabolism of various biological molecules. Some compounds that SAMe methylates are phospholipids. This is a fundamental step in the mediation of cell to cell communication.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
Of most immediate benefit to environmental illness sufferers are the actions of SAMe on liver and brain function. Low glutathione levels and resulting oxidant stress are commonplace in environmental illnesses. SAMe, being a key component in it's production, has been shown to raise glutathione levels and reduce oxidative stress. Cognitive and mood symptoms are also invariably present to one degree or another in envionmental illnesses. SAMe acts to help these problems through a process called methylation which results in the production of important brain chemicals. It can thus relieve depression and other mental/emotional problems. Many, many studies have confirmed the effectiveness of SAMe supplements for both liver and brain problems.

Jarrow Formulas 5-HTP -- 100mg - 60 Capsules

Jarrow Formulas 5-HTP -- 100mg - 60 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
Supports Serotonin Synthesis Jarrow Formulas 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is an extract of Griffonia simplicifolia seeds from coastal West Africa. Purity is assured by HPLC. 5-HTP is the direct metabolic precursor of serotonin and is important for the production of melatonin.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
5-HTP's action on serotonin levels has widespread benefits. Multiple studies have demonstrated its success in treating depression and anxiety. The results show that this supplement is as effective as conventional anti-depressant drugs. 5-HTP also helps with sleep whether depression and/or anxiety are also present or not. Our own experience and that of others has also shown that serotonin increasing measures, including 5-HTP supplements, can significantly reduce the severity of reactions to chemicals in those with MCS.

Jarrow Formulas L-Tyrosine 500 -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

Jarrow Formulas L-Tyrosine 500 -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
L-Tyrosine is utilized for the synthesis of catecholamine neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine. Jarrow Formulas L-Tyrosine is the pure, crystalline amino acid from microbiological fermentation. It is NOT derived from milk.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
There is a general concensus among integrative physicians treating environmental illnesses that patients commonly have signs of both neurotransmitter and thyroid hormone deficiency. Both of which can lead to depression, anxiety, fatigue, stress and other distressing symptoms. Amino acid therapy with l-tyrosine can help to resolve these symptoms by providing the building blocks for production of neurotransmitters and thyroid hormones. Reports suggest l-tyrosine is most effective when used in conjunction with 5-HTP.

Life Extension DL-Phenylalanine -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

Life Extension DL-Phenylalanine -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
L-phenylalanine is an essential amino acid which can be converted to L-tyrosine by a complex biochemical process which takes place in the liver. L-tyrosine can be converted by neurons in the brain to dopamine and norepinephrine (noradrenaline), hormones which are depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs. By replenishing norepinephrine in the brain, mental energy levels are enhanced and a feeling of contentment often occurs. Because of the liver conversion necessary for L-phenylalanine to have these effects, L-tyrosine is often faster acting. In addition, the conversion step from L-tyrosine to norepinephrine may be enhanced if the cofactors (vitamins B6 and C) are included.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
L-phenylalanine is the starting point for a number of important brain chemicals. It is converted into l-tyrosine and then into the catecholamine nuerotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. L-phenylalanine however is also converted into phenylethylamine (PEA) by a different pathway. This chemical is naturally occuring in the brain and is similar to amphetamines in structure and action but without the side-effects of amphetamine drugs. As such, PEA can elevate mood and increase alertness. The D form of phenylalanine is converted to PEA much more readily than the L form which makes DL-phenylalanine supplements much more effective for depression and associated states.
