DESCRIPTION: Asparagine is a non-essential amino acid since it can be synthesized from aspartic acid. It is needed to help maintain a balance in the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). Asparagine is important in the metabolism of toxic ammonia in the body. It is the first amino acid to be isolated from its natural source. Asparagine was first purified from asparagus juice in 1806.
POTENTIAL BENEFITS: Prevention from being too calm or overly nervous.
