Amino acids are the basic
building blocks of proteins. Indeed, proteins are involved in an endless number
of biochemical reactions in the human body. Amino acids are essential
for your body to function properly. They are involved in the production of over
50 thousand proteins and 15 thousand enzymes.
We offer a comprehensive list of high-quality amino acids to help
you achieve your goals.
There are 20 amino acids that are necessary for human life to
exist. They play an indispensable role in all of the building processes of the
body. Amino acids combine to form various types of indispensable
proteins in the body.
Here's a list of some of the types of proteins mentioned above:
structural proteins (like the ones found in skin and hair tissues - such as
collagen, elastin and keratin), transport proteins (such as hemoglobin),
signaling proteins, storage proteins, antibodies, enzymes, hormones, etc.
Since muscle fibers are made up of amino acids, they are unquestionably
essential for muscle repair and growth. Without an adequate supply of amino
acids, the body won't be able to repair damaged tissue or grow new one.
Amino acids play an important role in muscle tissue breakdown and promote
muscle recovery after intensive exercise (*1). Amino acids can
increase energy levels (ie: creatine (*2)), help remove toxic by-products of
muscle metabolism (ie: glutamine (*3)), promote healthy sleep and a stable mood
(ie: tryptophan (*4)), attenuate exercise-induced muscle damage (BCAAs and
taurine (*5)), etc.
As you can see, each amino acid
plays its own role in the body and all of them are necessary for a healthy
Essential amino acids are the ones that the body can't produce
endogenously, which means they have to be obtained through diet and/or
supplementation. There are nine essential amino acids: histidine,
isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and
Some non-essential amino acids can become conditionally
essential, meaning they are required in higher amounts at specific stages of
life. If you are lacking any amino acid (by consuming a low-protein diet) you
can develop minor injuries or, extremely, more severe medical conditions.
