What are amino acids? Each individual protein molecule is made up of different amino acids all connected in a chain known as a peptide link. When protein is digested our bodies break it down into specific amino acids in which are then put together for different uses. These new proteins in which are formed in the body are what makes up most of the solid matter within such as our; skin, eyes, heart, bones and of course muscle.
That is why it is beneficial to understand the ‘job’ of what each amino acid and why we should be consuming more of them to reach specific goals such as muscle building.
There are 20-22 standard amino acids:
- 8-10 are considered essential thereby you need to obtain them from your diet as the human body cannot synthesize them from other materials and therefore we have to rely on the food we eat.The 8-10 essential amino acids are; Histidine, Lycine, Phenylalanine, methionine, leucine, isoleucine, valine, threonine.
- There are around 14 non-essential amino acids, These are naturally produced by the body under optimal conditions. the most vital for function are; Glutamine, arginine, carnitine, cysteine, HMB.
