Description of essential amino acids found in Moringa
Isoleucina – Stabilizes blood sugar levels. An isoleucine deficiency can cause sugar levels in the blood and lack of energy. It also contributes to (whenever combined with leucine and valine) repare muscle tissue and the muscle and to increase energy and endurance.
Leucine – Reduces high blood sugar levels and induces the production of growth hormones.
Valine – Maintains the metabolism of the muscles, repairs the tissues while preserving a proper nitrogen balance in the organism. It also acts as high energy source for the entire human body.
Lysine – Contributes to the production of antibodies, enzymes, hormones and collagen, while helping the calcium assimilation process in the human body and playing an important role in the construction of proteins in muscles and bones.
Methionine and cystine – The human body easily converts one into other, depending on the specific needs of the organism. The methionine is the main source of sulphur in our body, which is used to ensure the growth of skin, hair and nails. It also helps the production of lecithin in the liver, thus reducing cholesterol and fatty liver.
Tryptophan – Helps the body to produce vitamin B3, needed to maintain the levels of serotonin and melatonin. These are vital for the healthy functioning of the brain. Serotonin acts as a calming agent and assists in the regulation of mood and appetite. Melatonin is important for a good night’s sleep.
Phenylalanine – Helps the nervous and memory systems. It’s also being used for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. It helps to reduce pain and inflammation.
Threonine – Helps the cardiovascular system, the liver, central nervous system as well as the immune system. It also plays an important role in the regulation of skin, collagen, muscular tissue, bones and the tooth enamel.
Histidine – It is released into the bloodstream during an allergic reaction. It is necessary for the production of red and white blood cells and helps repair tissue, maintaining the myelin sheath which protects the nerves.
- Protects the body from radiation and supports heavy metals removal from our organism.
- It also increases the blood flow to the sexual organs.
