Amino acids

Amino Acids are essential for building the body and are the basis of all living cells. They participate in muscle development, mass gain, energy production. But also to the nervous system, the immune system, tendons and joints in general.

The AA are a component of protein and are usually produced from whey and broken down into a total of 20 amino acids.

What is the composition of the amino acids ?

Amino acids are broken down into two groups: 8 essential AA and 12 non-essential AA .

The 8 essential AAs are:

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

We often find them in food supplements

The 11 non-essential AAs are

  • Alanine
  • Asparagine
  • Arginine
  • Aspartate
  • Cysteine
  • Glutamine
  • wisteria
  • Proline
  • Serine
  • Taurine
  • Tyrosine

Amino acids each have different properties to develop metabolism and promote muscle growth, maintain muscle volume and repair muscle fibers. Contribute to the formation of hemoglobin, regulate insulin secretion or promote protein synthesis.

Some like taurine increase energy levels and are often found in energy drinks. Tryptophan is often present in proteins like casein to help with relaxation and growth hormone secretion.


What do the amino acids serve ?

The AA are used for the body’s recovery in general. In addition to an adapted nutrition plan, they reinforce the nutrient intake in addition to proteins.

They are essential for:

  • Muscle growth.
  • Recovery after training.
  • Muscle definition and weight loss.
  • Endurance and background training.
  • Joint recovery
  • The nervous and immune system

Cuando tomar los amino acids ?

There are often taken at the same time as the main meals of the day, for example:

  • 6g at breakfast
  • 6g at lunch
  • 6g at dinner

Or before periods of several hours without food intake. From a biochemical point of view, the molecular chain is linear, which makes them slower to digest.

They are often presented in the form of more or less large tablets and do not cause any digestive problems.
