CHOOSE THE AMINOS – STEP II
Updated, 4/29/20: Corrections have been made on types 2 & 4.
Below, find the aminos that your questionnaire scores indicate you need. Types 1, 3, 4, and 5 correct brain neurotransmitter deficiencies. The Type 2 amino supports the brain’s blood glucose levels.
Aminos For Type 1, Depressed Cravers
Tryptophan (500 mg) or 5-HTP (50 mg) can correct the underlying serotonin deficits in those who eat Techno Karbz for relief of worry, depression, obsessiveness, insomnia, and other low-serotonin symptoms.
Aminos For Type 2, Crashed Cravers
Glutamine (500 mg) can instantly stop hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) cravings for sugar, starch, or alcohol.
Aminos For Type 3, Comfort Cravers
DPA (500 mg) or DLPA (500 mg) can correct the endorphin deficits that drive comfort-food cravings.
Amino For Type 4, Stressed Cravers
GABA (125 mg) or Theanine (100 mg) can stop the cravings caused by stress and tension by increasing levels of naturally tranquilizing GABA.
Aminos For Type 5, Fatigued Cravers
Tyrosine (500 mg) or l-Phenylalanine (500 mg), taken in the early part of the day, can stop cravings for caffeinated or chocolate treats in fatigued, inattentive eaters who are low in dopamine and norepinephrine.
Notes: 1) These Type 5 stimulating aminos can counteract the effects of the soothing aminos 1) and 4) if taken at the same time. (They are fine taken with Types 2 and 3 aminos.)
2) There are more possible risks for these aminos than for any of the others, so check the Type 5 Precautions carefully.
