It’s not an exaggeration to say that amino acids are the foundation for all life on Earth. The molecular building blocks of protein, amino acids are essential for many basic life and body functions.
In addition to their essentiality in the assembly of proteins for both collagen (an important connective tissue) and muscle tissue, amino acids play an integral role in a wide range of bodily functions.
They’re required for the production of certain neurotransmitters, as well as enzymes for the digestion of foods and many other biochemical processes including detoxification, the production of genetic materials and hormones, and so much more. Amino acids and the proteins they comprise account for approximately 75% of the human body’s dry weight. Talk about important!
Despite over 500 known amino acids, with an infinite number of possible variations, there are only 20 amino acids deemed necessary for human health. These amino acids are grouped into three categories – essential, non-essential, and conditionally essential. In addition, some of these amino acids can also be classified as branched-chain amino acids, as well as other amino acids of nutritional value that don’t neatly fit into these other categories.
In addition, there are several amino acids, peptides and amino acid-like nutrients that support various body systems, including L-Carnitine, N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC), Citrulline, Glutathione, and others.
