Amino acids are essential to life. They are central to virtually every function of the human body. All body tissues - every muscle, hair, nail, enzyme, and brain cell - is made of amino-acids. They are the precursors to happy and sad brain chemicals or neurotransmitters.

The pool of amino acids is highly dynamic, changing moment by moment by shifting the flow of metabolic pathways in response to multiple physiological signals. The benefits of taking amino-acids to improve your health can hardly be overstated.

They are central to the bio-chemistry of your body. They play a major role in nearly every chemical process that affects both physical and mental function. Ensuring a balanced and optimal intake of amino acids becomes critical for prevention as well as treatment of many chronic illnesses.

Discover the therapeutic potential of amino acids from improving libido, relieving pain, stimulate weight loss, slow ageing, ease pain, balance mental health, optimize gut function to boosting energy.

- Properties and classification

Review quote

Carmel Krpan- Director Krpan Industries

Ilve Hunt- Adv Dip HSC, DRM, researcher Amino Acid Compendium

HealthWise(R) amino acids are proud to be associated with the pioneer of compounding amino acids. Vanita Dahia, who is, without doubt, one of the most inspiring and well researched compounding pharmacist, practitioner and natural health advocate in Australia.

We are delighted to be able to contribute to Vanita's newest publication and look forward to being part of her future research projects.

John Catsicas - Compounding Pharmacist, Melbourne, Australia

After her first book, Alchemy of the Mind, Vanita has done it again with Alchemy of Amino Acids. This book just like the first one contains all the information one would ever need to know if they were interested in a complete analysis of the functions of amino acids, how to determine their balance in the body, how to adjust them if out of balance, thus affecting permanent resolution of symptoms in a natural way.

I highly recommend this book to all practitioners as a worthy addition to their arsenal.

Dr Ari Diskin, Chiropractic Doctor, Melbourne

Gratitude for Vanita Dahia's ongoing contribution to educating us all, professionals and public alike.

Vanita's vast knowledge, wisdom and many years experience as a Compounding Chemist, Naturopath, Practitioner and Consultant uniquely qualifies her as an expert.

Through her latest eBook Alchemy of Amino Acids, Vanita has once again demonstrated why she serves as advisor to doctors and laboratories. I call her the doctors' doctor.

`Dr Margaret Jiin Ngu MBBS, FACNEM, FAMAC, MSE(Psych)

Excellent companion for all Integrative Medicine practitioners.

Next to vitamins and minerals, amino acids are essential building blocks that play a huge part in clinical medicine.

Vanita Dahia has done it again with this long-awaited book Alchemy of Amino Acids, an essential guide to the use of amino acids in the functional approach to physical and mental disorders. This book gives step by step guidance to each amino acid explaining the physiological function, deficiency syndromes and how to use them therapeutically in clinical practice. Huge gratitude and appreciation.

Mary Cavvagion, Director Nutripath Pathology Services, Melbourne, Australia

Vanita, I admire your passion and commitment in assisting health practitioners world-wide in understanding the power of amino acids for health conditions.

Congratulations on yet another book, Alchemy of Amino Acids. This book has helped me finally understand amino acids as it is it so easy to understand, implement the essential information and stay current. I mandate that everyone has a copy of this book, a great training tool.

Dr Nathan Francis, Integrative Medical Doctor, Perth

There is an increasing incidence of epidemic proportions of calorie rich, nutrient poor diets contributing to many illnesses in the millennial to the post war generations, ranging from metabolic syndromes to nutrigenomics related diseases. Vanita Dahlia's book will be an essential compendium to the experienced and the novice practitioner of integrative medicine. I am grateful she has contributed her vast knowledge of amino acid in a practical and digestible format.
