Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for February 19, 2008


After doing a bit of research on the three new amino acids, I decide to start with threonine.

Threonine: Required for formation of collagen. Needed by the gastrointestinal tract for normal functioning. Threonine is an important component in the formation of protein, collagen, elastin and tooth enamel. It is also important for production of neurotransmitters and health of the nervous system. Threonine is one of the immune-stimulating nutrients (cysteine, lysine, alanine, and aspartic acid are others), Threonine is found in most meats and fish, dairy foods, eggs, wheatgerm, bananas, carrots, nuts, beans and seeds. Rich sources of threonine include meats, dairy foods and eggs. Wheat germ, many nuts, beans, and seeds, and vegetables contains some small level of threonine.

One two gram scoop in the morning and by the end of the day I didn’t notice any subtle changes so I added another two gram scoop in the evening. I also throught I would add asparagine as well.
