Amino acids

What are amino acids? These tiny powerhouses are the building blocks of protein, and your body craves them for optimal health.

Not all proteins are created equal. High-quality proteins are the ones that deliver the complete package of essential amino acids, the ones your body can't produce on its own. 

Essential amino acids

Essential amino acids are a must-have in your diet. Why so? Because these amino acids are your body's superheroes when it comes to building and repairing muscle tissue.  

When you skimp on them, you're essentially cutting off the supply line for your body's muscle-building factory. So, if you're serious about achieving that toned physique and maintaining peak performance, make sure your diet is packed with high-quality proteins.  Your muscles will thank you, and you'll be on your way to unlocking your full potential! 

What are the essential amino acids?

The essential amino acids are the nine of the twenty amino acids, and cannot be produced in the body alone. These are:

  • Histidine
  • Isoleucine 
  • Leucine 
  • Lysine 
  • Methionine 
  • Phenylalanine 
  • Threonine 
  • Tryptophan 
  • Valine

BCAAs

The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine, and valine are essential amino acids that play important metabolic roles, particularly during exercise and in the maintenance and growth of skeletal muscle. 

BCAAs account for 35% of the essential amino acids in muscle proteins and can serve as an energy source for muscle tissue during exercise.
