Amino Acids

As the building blocks of protein, amino acids are vital to health. Next to water, amino acids, in the form of proteins, make up the greatest portion of our body weight. Amino Acids are a necessary part of every cell in the human body and are vital components for tendons, muscles and ligaments, organs and glands, hair and nails, and important bodily fluids.

There are over 20 amino acids, separated into three categories: The indispensable amino acids, the conditionally dispensable amino acids, and the dispensable amino acids. Indispensable amino acids, also called essential amino acids, must be supplied to the body from food or supplements. Conditionally dispensable amino acids are based on the body's ability to actually synthesize them from other amino acids. Dispensable amino acids, also called nonessential amino acids, can be synthesized by the body from other amino acids. The body must have the right combination of essential amino acids and supporting nutrients to optimise healthy protein maintenance, so supplementation may be desirable.

Amino acids are not only absolutely integral to life, but they can have a profound impact upon mood, how clearly we think and how well we feel.

Research suggets the main key benefits that athletes can achieve, through added amino acid supplementation: Help build lean muscles, increase stamina, improve recovery from fatigue and reduces mental fatigue.
