Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. With 20% of the body made up of protein, and with protein playing a crucial role in almost all biological processes, amino acids play an important part in our health. Amino acids are essential in many bodily functions including providing structure to cells along with supporting the transport and storage of nutrients.
The quantity of amino acids in the body is believed to be an important contributor to a balanced metabolism. As protein is digested, it is then broken down into the individual amino acids before being put back together as new protein. If the presence of amino acids is not available sufficient quantities than the production of protein and the preservation of lean muscle mass will be weakened.
