Individual Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Amino acids are essential for repairing tissue, especially in the muscles, bones, skin and hair. They also play a part in the function of organs, glands, tendons and arteries.

There are nine essential amino acids (EAAs), that our bodies cannot make and therefore must be obtained through diet and 11 non-essential amino acids (NEAAs), which can be synthesised by our body.

The essential amino acids include tryptophan, lysine, methionine, histidine, phenylalanine, threonine, valine, leucine, and isoleucine. Three of these (leucine, valine and isoleucine) are called branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) due to their chemical structure.

Each amino acid has a specific purpose. Click here to learn about the benefits/functions of each amino acid for athletes and gym-goers alike.
