Re: Amino Acids--OMG, and a discovery, Lyme's/ammonia/Glutamine


That's a catch .22.
Urine needs to be acidic, eating alkalanizing foods prevents the body from getting rid of ammonia that way...but eating protein makes more ammonia.

>>>>Ammonia is detoxified in several ways in the body.

One is that it gets stuck on alpha keto glutarate to make glutamine.
If the enzyme that does this is on the fritz then these two would be
elevated.

Another is that is is combined with ornithine to make urea.

Another is that it is excreted as ammonium ion in urine, which
requires the urine to be acidic. Eating alkalanizing foods prevents
the body from getting rid of ammonia this way.

Ammonia generally comes from the metabolism of protein, so restricting
dietary protein reduces the body's ammonia levels. of course this may
conflict with other reasons you want to give him MORE protein....
