Study demonstrates the positive effect of amino acids on body and soul
Depressive moods can be improved using an optimised amino acid preparation. This has been proved in a scientific study by the research team of Dr Jürgen Spona, formerly the head of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Cellular Endocrinology, in cooperation with the Psychiatric Clinic of the University of Graz. The results of the four-year research project, funded by the Austrian state of Styria, were published in the April edition of the scientific journal “European Archives of Psychiatry and Clinical Neuroscience”.
An amino acid imbalance can inhibit protein synthesis, resulting in fatigue, depressive moods, inability to concentrate and compromised immune defence. “An amino acid deficiency can develop, for example, as a result of stress or illness as well as growth and ageing processes,” explains Dr Jürgen Spona. “The intake of specific amino acids boosts both our physical and mental fitness.”
