Amino Acid Supplements

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, your body's main energy source. A host of specific amino acid imbalances can instigate or contribute to symptoms of chronic fatigue.

All of the amino acids need to be present for vitamins and minerals to perform their tasks properly.

Amino acids are the building blocks that make up proteins. Protein could not exist without the proper combination of amino acids. To understand how vital amino acids are, you must understand how essential proteins are to life. It is protein that provides the structure for all living things. Each organism from the largest animal to the tiniest microbe is composed of protein. It is protein that participates in the vital chemical processes that enable us to sustain life.

In the human body, protein substances make up the muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, glands, nails, hair, and body fluids (except for bile and urine). Proteins are essential for the growth of bones. Enzymes, hormones, and genes are also comprised of various proteins. Next to water, protein makes up the greatest portion of our body weight. Consequently, it is easy to see why meeting our body's protein requirements is so important to good health.

In order for a protein to be complete, it must contain all of its particular amino acids. Amino acids may be linked together almost indefinitely to form more than 50,000 different proteins and 20,000 known enzymes. Each type of protein is composed of different amino acids, each being tailored for a specific need, they are not interchangeable. Amino acids contain about 16 percent nitrogen. This distinguishes them from carbohydrates and fats in the body.

The central nervous system cannot function without amino acids, which act as neurotransmitters or as precursors to the neurotransmitters. They are necessary in order for the brain to receive and send messages and for the glands to release required hormones. Unless all of the amino acids are present together, almost anything can go wrong with the transmission of messages.
