Amino acids

Amino acids play an important role in most body processes. Any physical activity that requires energy like movement, recovery, muscle / strength gains and fat burning, even mood and brain function are critically related to amino acids. Of the 24 known amino acids, nine are considered essential - leucine, isoleucine, valine, methionine, threonine, lysine, phenylalanine, tryptophan and histidine. If any one of them is absent or missing, protein synthesis is impaired or stopped. This is especially important for athletes - the process of building new muscles is simply not possible without amino acids.
