    Mode of drug action


    L-histidine L-histidine hydrochloride is an essential amino acid which is not produced in the body and obtained from external sources like fish, meat, and cheese. It is involved in the formation of proteins and influences many metabolic activities in the body. L-isoleucine L- isoleucine is one of the nine essential amino acids of dietary proteins. It has diversified physiological functions. It is an isomer of leucine. It is an essential nutrient which is not synthesized in the body. It must be taken through food sources. L-leucine L-leucine is a dietary amino acid. It slows the degradation of muscle tissue by increasing the synthesis of muscle proteins. It also decreases food intake and lowers body weight by binding to sestrin 2 and activate m TORC1 receptor. L-Lysine L- Lysine hydrochloride is an amino acid which enhances the absorption of calcium. It also takes part in the formation of collagen, which makes up bones and cartilage. Therefore, it is used for the treatment of osteoporosis. It kills the herpes simplex virus by cytopathogenicity. L-Phenylalanine L-phenylalanine is an essential amino acid and the only form of phenylalanine found in proteins. The body uses L-phenylalanine to make chemical messengers, to transfer signals to the brain. L-threonine L-threonine is an essential amino acid that is obtained from the diet. It is a little known amino acid with a vital role in the immune system. It is changed to a chemical called glycine, the compound which works in the brain to reduce unwanted muscle contractions. It combines with aspartic acid and methionine to facilitate liver in breaking fats and fatty acids. L-valine L-valine helps to prevent the breakdown of muscle by supplying extra glucose for energy production. It removes excess nitrogen by transporting it to other tissues where necessary. L-valine treats liver and gall bladder disease caused due to alcoholism and drug abuse. L-Methionine L-Methionine has anti-hepatotoxic activity. However, its mechanism of action is not clearly known. A high dose of acetaminophen or paracetamol decreases the hepatic glutathione levels, increases oxidative stress and increases the risk of hepatotoxicity. L-Methionine is a precursor of L-cysteine which has antioxidant activity. Therefore, L-methionine decreases the oxidative stress and reduces the risk of hepatotoxicity in the patients having acetaminophen poisoning. L-Tryptophan L-tryptophan is not synthesized in the body, it is obtained from the diet. It plays a main role in many functions of the body development and function. Human body converts L-tryptophan into 5-HTP and then to serotonin. It is important to send signals to the brain and nerve cells. It also causes narrowing of blood vessels by constriction them. L-tyrosine L-tyrosine is more soluble than tyrosine supplements. It produces amino acid that produces noradrenaline and dopamine. The human body makes L-tyrosine from another amino acid called phenylalanine. It is an important component for brain chemicals such as neurotransmitters.
