I have a question about Amino Acids. I am a very light eater, I am vegan. I just don't eat very much food, I often skip meals simply because I am not hungary.
I am reading about amino acids and how you have to eat foods with each of the essential amino acids everyday. I know I do eat enough food to get all of the essential amino acids.
Do you think it would be ok for me to take one of those "complete" amino acid supplements? Just to be sure I get them all everyday?
I took 5-HTP for 4 days and the 1st day was GREAT I slept like a rock and woke feeling good, 4th day had scary bad headache, not good. I read 5-htp can cause stertonian overdose in the brain, possible death, starts with bad headache! I stopped 5-htp.
I am not a body builder or heavy exerciser, I see muscle builder type products in connection with amino acid supplements.
I was thinking maybe I can take a complete amino acid supplement to be sure I get them all everyday OR are amino acid supplements bad for your brain? I read on a AA supplement label that has all the AAs but that it needed to be taken with protein.
I have read that amino acids compete with each other, thus when taken together in one capsule some get absorbed others do not because they push each other out?
I know eating all the foods is best but I can't make myself eat when I am not hungry. That is why I thought a supplement might be a good solution.
After reading more, what does everything think of meal "drinks", I can drink where I am not eating, if the drink has nutrients of a meal that should work? idk, I drink water, so maybe a meal drink would be an option.
I AM NOT on a diet or trying to lose weight however all meal drinks seem to be all about losing weight. And they all have milk! I can't find a vegan one.
I just want to make sure I am getting all the necessary nurtients/amino acids to be healthy without having to make myself eat when I am not hungry. I know I am not getting them now because I do not feel healthy, I feel weak and tired.
You most likely feel week and tired bc you are not eating enough food. You need to eat enough daily calories or you will not be a healthy person.
They have vegan meal replacement drinks that, as I understand it, come premixed or you can mix with your beverage of choice.
Of course It is better to get amino acids from food in a drink. I just saw an article about this. Protein has all the essential amino acids.
Here is an article on LinkedIn, the 10th biggest website in the country. It has on it the CDC, Harvard School of Public Health and American Heart Association saying to eat more fruits and vegetables. It is called
The Scientific Difference Between Plant and Animal Foods.
