Hisidine Amino Acid

Mar 07, 2020
Histidine Amino Acid.
Today's discussion centers around the Histidine Amino Acid. I am moving this in a slightly upscaling of these discussions to cover Amino Acid. We are looking at these because of their importance. We say the minerals are at the center of all of this stuff, and yes they are as they are the base elements of the next step which is Amino Acids. The minerals don't do much more than just set there unless we have a blend of sorts of them along with other factors, to give them energy and give life to them. An Amino Acid is the next step in giving life to the minerals. They are the building blocks of proteins, which we are essentially a collection of proteins. So with that, we will move on. Keep in mind that later down the road we will look at the other factors. But for now, step by step and the next step is Amino Acids I hope you enjoy this one, it will include some interesting perspectives, of which will give you the wow effect, at least in your mind.
Histidine is considered to be an Amino Acid of such importance to the core functioning of the body that many scientists refer to the Histidine AA as, well, if there is a God Ammino, then Histidine would be a directly tied to it.  So in simple terms, one might consider this AA as being in a role of significant importance that it is among the master controlling AA as it pertains to the human body function.  You will notice that I haven't included "Animals" here. There is a reason as to why, and I will explain later one. However, the idea only applies to one small section of the Histidine function and its related activities. Not only is Histidine vitally important it also is a precursor to the Amino Acid, Histamine which is almost as vitally important.  As a note the chemical make up of these 2 are as follows; Histidine - C6 H9 N3 O2. The makeup for Histamine is as follows; C5 H9 N3. So as Hisidine develops into Histamine it drops a Carbon molecule and drops both Oxygen molecules. So it changes, but not drastically. The interesting whole idea with both of these is that based on their functioning, we see very clearly how the Brain-Gut connection is a very real thing because of the role of these 2 amino acids. I mention the 2 because they do work very closely together and as I go through this discussion, I will try to stick to Histidine and as that is the focus of this discussion.
Here is a real generalized description of some background on Histidine. Within the brain, we have the energy swirling on both sides of the brain. It is believed that where these 2 spinning masses of energy come together it creates a vortex. It is within this vortex where consciousness takes place. The theory goes further to discuss the energy type and levels are what makes us human over animal. It would make sense that if this energy is lower and or slower, then the level of conscious awareness would be less, not absent in animals. While I am able to see this whole theory in what you might say black and white as opposed to color, even in black and white it does make perfect sense. The difference between seeing the idea in black and white vs. color is that some detail may not be as clear as they are in color over black and white. As I have mentioned in a previous discussion that it is thought that sexual orgasm takes place in the brain with physiological changes triggering the sudden change from one nervous system to the other. Histidine plays a role in the nervous system's operational activities.
When we take into consideration how to obtain Histidine, as it does not lend to being synthesized within the body by using the idea of recycling, de nova, so we need to look at original sourcing for this amino acid.  Whereas with Histamine, it is largely synthesized from Histidine. So in order to get both, we simply focus on the one. So where do we get the stuff from? For the most part, we get it from animal meat. The richest are from Lamb and Pig meat. The organs contain much higher amounts of Histidine than muscle meat does. Other meats that contain a good amount are meats that many people don't each in large quantity or a widespread basis, such as whale and seal meat. Most organ meat falls under this same category of not being eaten much as a general rule.  Rabbit meat contains the best-balanced ratios of Amino Acids in comparison to other animals. The organ meat from Lamb, for example, will contain around 3 times the level as does its muscle meat. When it comes to plant-based sources, we find a higher amount of Soy products. Other food sources are grains and seeds. What we end up seeing with people that go on these diets that are nothing more than selective starvation, is that most all end up with a severe situation in regard to overall health and in regard to Histidine, because they fail to compensate for what is removed from their diets. IE; they fail to adjust for the shortages caused bu cutting certain foods from their diets. But they do lose weight, right? Yes, they do, by starvation, in this case, selective starvation.
Some studies have been done using aromatic compounds containing plants. So here we get into the essential oil-related angle of the deal. in this study, they used several plants containing aromatic compounds, and used the following; Mint, Fennel, Basil, and Anise. The study found that Fennel produced the best source for raising the Histidine level in the rabbit meat analyzed. Although the other plants done well, the Anise came in somewhat disappointing as it relates to Histidine. The amount of plant material used was small. They also used each of these aromatic plants with a probiotic. In each of these, the use of probiotics actually did not help and in fact, gave disappointing results. They made mention in the study that this gives some new perspective to the need to study the use of aromatic plants in nutritional studies for humans.  This also shows the mythology that exists in aromatherapy that the oils provide no nutrition and that in order to get any nutrition from these aromatic plants, that you would have to consume huge amounts of the plant material. It may appear to be true when you are looking at the whole idea from providing the macro and micro minerals but it all changes when you move up a step to the Amino Acids. The game changes and changes big time with all things aromatherapy when you start looking at the EO use though the Amino Acid prism. When we use aromatherapy to address issues from an Amino Acid angle, it works much better.
The essential oil is essentially an acid. So it stands to reason that it kind of starts acting like acid when allowed to do so. So when we step up into the amino acid room with these aromatic plants and their "offspring",  a different picture emerges. When we move past using essential oils as a base agent, we can then move into the areas where the action takes place. So when we use oil from a Mint source, there are many there and they all work pretty much the same for this purpose.  Anise oil is good but comes up short on this amino acid as an influencer. Oh, I used a new idea. Keep in mind that we can argue until the cows come home about the nutritional contribution of essential oil, we cannot argue over this concept as there is not an argument, only a discussion as to the degree of INFLUENCE an essential oil has on a particular subject. So new word fo the day in the EO world, influencer. So based on these rabbit studies, we can conclude that Fennel makes a huge contribution to the retention of and maybe even contribute to the Histidine found in our bodies for our use.
Histidine is important because of it working with our immune systems. It is all about our immune system and even our mental control over anything that our brain has to control within our body, even to the point of conscience awareness and function. Histidine acts much like the "Boss", when the main observed action is supervising and doing some work.  Whereas Histamine acts much like the worker, just carrying out the orders of the boss man. So up to this point, I have done a pretty good job of avoiding going into a discussion of Histamine and tieing the two into a mess. So it looks like I will need to do a discussion on Histamine to do justice to this subject. I would like to go into things more here, but we get into the brain and brain function and my observations and research there, well, if I mentioned much, it would make some people really mad at me, so to keep the peace, let's leave it where we are. Besides if I mention it in the next one, it mellows out and makes more sense without striking up emotional responses. LOL> The Bottom line with Histidine is brain and gut function. Without this Amino Acid functioning, everything you have to do with all of this autoimmune response stuff along with many other brain functions.. well isn't going to happen.  The first sign of a Histidine related shortage: Socicopathetic behaviors. I call them psychopaths.
Again, thank you for your time and interest in these discussions. I hope they help you.
