Here is the whole content:
Glycin 1801 mg
Alanine 627 mg
Valine 180 mg
Leucin 231 mg
Izoleucin 101 mg
Cystein 7 mg
Methionine 72 mg
Phenylalanine 159 mg
Proline 1298 mg
Hydroxiproline 1016 mg
Serine 29 mg
Treonine 137 mg
Tyrosine 36 mg
Asparganic acid 476 mg
Glutamic acid 822 mg
Arginine 584 mg
Lysine 728 mg
Histidine 58 mg
Ornitine 60 mg
Carnitine 15 mg

I take this at about 2 pm, some 2 hours after lunch. What I miss in this mix is Tryptophan and I checked some web sites for new mix of amino acids containing tryptophan. On the box it recommneds taking 3 tablets daily (above is mg for 1 tablet) as a dietary supplement.
Regarding Glutamic acid and glutamine I still think this is low. We are suppose to have 100.000 mg of this stuff in our bodies. My diet is not so rich in protein (I rarely drink milk, eat eggs or meat) and that's why this mix suits me I guess...

I also have one question that I could not find answer to regarding L-glutamine. In all documents it says that it is conditionally essential amino acid because under some conditions like stress, severe trauma, surgery, supplementation can be helpful. But what about emotional stress? What I noticed is that it gave me energy back after looooong period of stress? So question - it may be helpful with physical stress like training,surgery but what about emotional stress? Any links?
