The Importance of No Proteins
One of the therapeutic secrets of Alpha ENF, Alpha PMX Alpha AAX, and Alpha
DMX is the avoidance of proteins or peptides. Proteins are the most reactive
molecules in food allergic disease. Staple foods such as milk, eggs, wheat,
corn, soy and meat contain proteins that frequently cause immune responses and
are the basic problem in delayed patterns of food allergy.
Prominent allergist-immunologists such as Brennerman, Gerrard, Knicker, Hill,
Brostoff and numerous others made conspicuous efforts to elucidate the delayed
forms of food allergy which involve the most profound immune mechanisms. Delayed
reactions begin in the gastrointestinal tract mucosa and spread inward to any
body tissue if food proteins enter the circulation and interact with the
circulating immune system. Incoming food protein/antigens tend to form immune
complexes, and can injury target organs by triggering inflammatory responses in
a variety of ways. Knicker stated : "Delayed adverse reactions to foods are
exceedingly varied, and may involve virtually any organ system. Some reactions
are classically allergic ( the same list described for immediate reactions
alone), and at times may reflect delayed IgE-mediated mechanisms. Others involve
a single organ system, or multiple organ systems ( e.g. the central nervous
system, respiratory system, skin, musculoskeletal apparatus, gastrointestinal
system, cardiovascular system etc.) with puzzling combination of symptoms."
Our focus is on the interface between things ingested and the inner body
space.; The boundary is the wall of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). This
boundary selects molecules for entry into the private space of self.
Understanding what crosses this boundary is critical to the new understanding of
food allergy and; the diseases it causes. Coombs and McLaughlin summarized the
problem:; "Food proteins in the gastrointestinal tract and their absorption into
the body as antigenic molecules have immunologic significance both in
(i) initiating an allergic state and;
(ii) in the subsequent challenges,; a variety of mechanisms; may cause some
form of 'food-allergic disease."
Proteins in Formulas
Meal replacement formulas, liquid diets and protein powders sold as
"body-building" supplements can be a source of trouble. Protein powders are
often made from cheap proteins such as milk protein (casein, caseinates, whey),
egg white (albumin), soya proteins, or hydrolyzed vegetable proteins. Hydrolyzed
proteins are only partially digested; by chemical means and retain allergenic
properties. In addition small peptides have physiological properties and may
cause unexpected problems both the digestive tract and in the whole body.
Removing Protein Disease
Alpha AAX, ENF and PMX avoid all the protein problems by providing a
balanced set of pure l-form amino acids - the real nutrients derived from
proteins by digestion of food. Amino acids do not trigger immune responses and
are therefore hypoallergenic. Free amino acids are more expensive than protein
powders, but freeing the immune system from protein challenge is well worth the
AAX can be used whenever increased intake of amino acids is desirable. The
dose range is 10 to 50 Grams per day in divided doses. The best time to take AAX
is between meals, before and after workouts and body building exercises. AAX can
be used to replace dietary protein when eating is reduced or digestion is
impaired.; AAX can be added to Alpha ENF and or Alpha PMX to boost amino acid
Even with no food protein intake, a daily intake of 30 grams of free form
amino acids will be adequate for most people, most of the time. RDA protein
values are crude approximations based on food protein values. AAX is a precisely
engineered amino acid set and the amino acids are 100% available, so that the
total daily requirement for amino acids is lower the RDA values for protein
intake. As a rule of thumb, we recommend calculating the RDA protein requirement
in Grams and supplying 30 to 50% of that value as the Alpha blend of amino acids
(Available separately in Alpha AAX or combines with other nutrients in Alpha
ENF, Alpha PMX, and Alpha DMX.)
In Alpha AAX nine essential amino acids are complemented by 10 of the
non-essential amino acids. There are no additional ingredients in Alpha AAX.
Only pure l-form amino acids are provided. Alpha AAX is a
powder to be added to fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables or juices and mixed
in a blender. The formula is useful for special
