Overview

Amino acids are the building blocks of our body. Our muscles, tendons, organs, glands, nails and hair are built from proteins. The growth, regeneration and maintenance of these cells are dependent on amino acid intake. Along with water, a large part of our body weight is made up of proteins. There are amino acids that must be obtained from our diet since we can’t get them in any other way; they are the essential amino acids; there are amino acids that the body can synthesize from other sources; they are the non-essential amino acids.

Below we summarise the role of the different amino acids in the body. You can read more information in the detailed review of each amino acid.

Histidine (essential amino acid)

  • the largest quantity is found in hemoglobin
  • it is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, ulcers and anaemia
  • it is essential to tissue growth and regeneration
  • it plays an important role in the maintenance of myelin sheaths (it protects the neurons)
  • it is required for red and white blood cell production
  • it protects the body against radiation damage
  • it lowers blood pressure
  • it supports the removal of heavy metals from the body

Isoleucine (essential amino acid)

  • It is required for haemoglobin production
  • it stabilises and regulates blood sugar and energy levels
  • it is especially useful for athletes, since it supports the regeneration of muscles, skin and bones.

Leucine (essential amino acid)

  • Along with isoleucine and valine, it supports the regeneration of muscles, skin and bones
  • it may be beneficial to the healing process following surgical interventions
  • it reduces blood glucose level and enhances growth hormone production

Lysine (essential amino acid)

  • it helps the body absorb calcium and maintains a positive nitrogen balance in adults
  • it supports collagen production (the building material of cartilage and connective tissue)
  • it supports the production of antibodies that prevent herpes infection
  • it decreases serum triglyceride levels

Methionine (essential amino acid)

  • it is a strong antioxidant
  • it is an excellent source of sulphur, which may be beneficial against various hair, nail and skin problems
  • it supports fat breakdown and therefore it prevents its accumulation in the liver and the arteries, which may block blood circulation in the heart, the brain and the kidneys
  • it helps body detoxification (heavy metals)
  • it helps to eliminate muscle weakness
  • it protects the body against radiation damage
  • it promotes the excretion of oestrogen
  • it decreases histamine levels in the body

Phenylalanine (essential amino acid)

  • it is used by the brain to produce norepinephrine (it transmits signals between the neurons)
  • it increases alertness and vitality
  • it enhances mood
  • it controls pain
  • it is used in the treatment of arthritis
  • it is beneficial against depression and migraine

Threonine (essential amino acid)

  • it helps to maintain protein balance in the body
  • it plays an important role in collagen, elastin and tooth enamel production
  • it aids liver and lipotropic function when combined with aspartic acid and methionine
  • it assists the metabolism and the absorption of different substances

Tryptophan (essential amino acid)

  • a natural tranquilizer, it helps to eliminate insomnia
  • it reduces anxiety and depression and enhances mood
  • it helps in the treatment of migraine headaches
  • it supports the immune system
  • it reduces appetite
  • it supports the production of HGH

Valine (essential amino acid)

  • it is required for muscle metabolism and coordination, tissue regeneration and the maintenance of a positive nitrogen balance in the body
  • it is used as an energy source by muscle cells
  • it promotes mental function and has a sedative effect

Alanine (non-essential amino acid)

  • it plays a major role in the transfer of nitrogen from peripheral tissue to the liver
  • it enhances glucose metabolism
  • it prevents the buildup of toxic substances that are released when muscle protein is broken down (e.g. during aerobic exercise)
  • it supports the immune system by producing antibodies

Arginine (non-essential amino acids)

  • it is considered ''The Natural Viagra" since it increases blood flow to the penis.
  • it slows down the growth of tumours
  • it supports your immune system
  • it helps to neutralise ammonia, which is important for liver detoxification
  • it reduces the effects of chronic alcohol toxicity
  • it increases sperm count
  • it supports the production of HGH
  • it is a major component of collagen

Aspartic acid (non-essential amino acid)

  • it is beneficial against chronic fatigue and depression
  • it rejuvenates cellular activity, cell formation and metabolism, which gives a younger looking appearance
  • it participates in body detoxification along with other amino acids
  • it helps the transport of certain minerals from the intestines to the blood and cells

Glycine (non-essential amino acid)

  • it prevents muscle degradation
  • It improves glycogen storage, thus freeing up glucose molecules to provider energy
  • It is beneficial for prostate health
  • It is important for tissue regeneration and supports its recovery
