Beyond Building Blocks: Amino Acids for Super Humans. Part I of an SHR Series on Metabolic, Endocrine and Neurocrine Functions of Amino Acids

This relevant for all of you - regardless of whether you can or cannot spare the time: Tune in live and listen to me @ Carl Lenore's Super Human Radio to learn that amino acids are far more than just the building blocks of the proteins of your body...

Listen live to SHR @ 12:00PM ET

Metabolic, Endocrine and Neuroendocrine Functions of Amino Acids

In the first installment of the series we will lay the foundations. What is an amino acid? What does it do, but being incorporated into proteins? How do we get (enough) amino acids? What on earth does our body do, once those little nitrogen containing molecules enter our blood streams?

As always, I will do my best to provide relevant examples and relate the theory to practical advice. The magic of individual amino acids will be tackled in the shows to come.
Update: The show is now available for download.
