Alanine General Information
Alanine is a nonessential amino acid that is an important source of energy for the muscles, brain, and central nervous system. It is used by the body to build protein and was first isolated in 1879. The alpha-carbon in Alanine is substituted with a levorotatory-methyl group, making it one of the simplest Amino acids with respect to molecular structure and is one of the most widely used protein construction. It is a critical component in building protein and it helps regulate the metabolism of sugars and organic acids. This amino acid also produces antibodies which boost the immune system. Alanine is found in meats, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products. Some protein-rich plants like avocado also supply Alanine.

Definition of Amino Acid
Amino Acid: One of the 20 building blocks of protein. The function of the protein is determined by the Genetic code in the DNA. Amino acids are molecules that (in technical terms) contain a basic amino (NH2) group, an acidic carboxyl (COOH) group and a side chain attached to an alpha carbon atom. The term "Amino Acids" dates to the middle of the 19th century. The idea that the Amino Acids are "Bausteine" (building blocks) came from the Nobel Prize winning German biochemist Albrecht Kossel (1853-1927)

Alanine Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Alanine plays a leading role in the transfer of nitrogen from the peripheral tissue to the liver. It helps in the metabolism of glucose and in the complex carbohydrate that the body uses for energy. It also protects against the buildup of toxic substances that are released in the muscle cells when muscle potein is broken down to meet energy needs to fast, such as what happens with an aerobic exercise. One form of Alanine, Beta-alanine, is a constituent of Pantothetic acid (Vitamin B5) and coenzyme A, a vital catalyst in the body. Researh has found that people with insulin-dependent diabetes, taking an oral dose of L.-alanine can be more effective than the usual bedtime snack in halting nighttime hypoglycemia.

Alanine is present in prostate fluid which has spurred scientific research for its effect on benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In one study involving 45 men with BPH, the men were given 780 mg of Alanine per day for 2 weeks, then 390 mg for 2 and a half months along with a combination glycine and glutamic acid, and found the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia were reduced.

Alanine Dosage Information
Amino acid supplements prefaced by the letter L, such as L-Alanine, are more similar to the amino acids in the body than those that start with the letter D, with the exception of D-L phenylalanine, which treats chronic pain. When taking Amino acid individually take them on an empty stomach. This way they do not have to compete with the Amino Acids in the food you have eaten.

Alanine Safety & Interaction Information
The only safety issue that is noted: Be aware that individual Amino Acids should not be taken for long periods of time. Moderation is the key. Do not take doses in excess of the recommended doses unless you discuss with your Doctor/Health Care Provider. Please follow the label instructions.
