Are Amino Acids Harmful?

Monday, 15 October 2012 08:13 AM

Question: I want to pick a good multivitamin, but you have said amino acids can be harmful. Is it okay to get a multivitamin with amino acids?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Many manufacturers add amino acids (called chelated supplements) to improve absorption. Most use aspartate, which can cause headaches in those with migraines.
I generally suggest that one avoid supplements containing excitotoxic amino acids such as glutamate (glutamic acid), aspartate (aspartic acid), or cysteine.
