Amino Acids are the building blocks of the body. They make up every tissue. Hair, skin, nails, teeth, and most importantly, MUSCLES are all made from amino acids. There are 20 amino acids from different structures used to create tissues in the body. Of these, there are 9 essential amino acids (cannot be made by the body) that must be consumed from diet and 11 non-essential amino acids (the body can create as needed).
Amino acids have many functions, some of the most important are:
- Stimulating protein synthesis to promote recovery and lean muscle growth
- Reduce lean muscle breakdown and overall recovery time
- Support immune system health and function
When we exercise, we damage tissue in the muscles leaving waste products and promoting DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). The body uses amino acids to expedite the recovery process and reduce recovery time. Putting ample quality proteins in the body immediately before or following exercise is a great way to kick start the recovery process and a proven method to make sure the damage to the body is minimal post training. Amino acids can also give your immune system a boost to help fight off illnesses and keep you as healthy and strong as possible.
