Amino Acids (Supplement)

Amino acids are the building blocks for all life, also the chemical basis for all protein. Protein is one of the biggest components of our bodies. Our bodies use amino acids to form the proteins which build everything from muscles and bones, skin and hair, to internal organs and fluids. Besides building cells and repairing tissue, they form antibodies to combat invading bacteria & viruses; they are part of the enzyme & hormonal system; they build nucleoproteins (RNA & DNA); they carry oxygen throughout the body and participate in muscle activity.

Types of amino acids

There are about 20 natural amino acids. These can be divided into two basic groups: essential and non-essential. The essential amino acids are those which your body cannot produce. Your body only gets these through your diet. The nonessential amino acids are just as important, but your liver can manufacture them.
