Brief description of aspartic acid:
Aspartic acid, also known as aspartic acid, is an α-amino acid, and the L-isomer of aspartic acid is one of 20 protein amino acids, that is, the structural unit of protein. Its codons are GAU and GAC. It is an acidic amino acid with glutamic acid. Aspartic acid is ubiquitous in biosynthesis. It is a synthetic precursor of amino acids such as lysine, threonine, isoleucine, and methionine, as well as purine and pyrimidine bases. It can be used as a carrier of K+ and Mg+ ions to deliver electrolytes to the myocardium, thereby improving myocardial contractile function and reducing oxygen consumption. It also has a protective effect on myocardium when coronary circulation disorders are hypoxic. It participates in the ornithine cycle, promotes the production of urea by oxygen and carbon dioxide, reduces the amount of nitrogen and carbon dioxide in the blood, enhances liver function, and eliminates fatigue.
The main role of aspartic acid:
Aspartic acid has a wide range of uses in medicine, food and chemical industries. In medicine, it can be used to treat heart disease, liver disease, hypertension, and prevent and restore fatigue. Together with a variety of amino acids, it can be made into amino acid infusion, used as an ammonia detoxifier, liver function promoter, fatigue recovery Agent. In the food industry, it is a good nutritional supplement, added to a variety of refreshing beverages; it is also the main raw material of aspartame-aspartame. In the chemical industry, it can be used as a raw material for manufacturing synthetic resins. Can also be used as nutritional additives for cosmetics.
