Amino Acids
Joining us today to help us learn more about amino acids and the important role they play in our health is author and clinical detoxification and therapeutic supplementation expert from Toronto, Canada, Josh Gitalis!

We've all heard of amino acids but you may be like host, Christine, and not be very familiar with the essential role they play in our health.  Today Josh breaks it down for us in easy to use descriptions and examples so we can learn more about the types of foods to eat to best utilize the amino acids in our bodies.  We also talk about the role that amino acids play in our overall brain health.

Feel depressed?  Feel overtired or not sleeping well?  Maybe your hormones aren't working quite right. All of these issues and many more can be directly impacted by the amino acids in our system and whether we are truly absorbing the foods we eat. Listen in as Josh patiently and sagely helps us to understand information that can make a huge difference.

To see which foods are strong in particularly amino acids, please visit www.whfoods.com or you can also visit the USDA Foods Database.
