What Are Amino Acids?

What Are Amino Acids?

Do you ever wonder what goes inside of the foods you eat or the vitamins you take? You probably already know about all of the nutrients your body needs, but do you know what those nutrients really do for your body.

Take amino acids for instance. Did you know that they are essential for almost every part of your body? Their strands form together like a chemical reaction, which produces protein. Each strand is made up of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen that makes the protein our bodies need.

Our body relies on the protein for growth and repair of almost all of our body. Without the protein we would not have our long beautiful hair or nails and most importantly our organs would not function properly. 
There are 20 different acids that make protein, but there are only 10 that are actually produce by the body. Since not all of the acids are produced, we must provide it with the proper nutrients to keep our bodies healthy and strong.

The 10 acids that our body can produce are called non-essential acids. The non-essential acids are alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, proline, serine and tyrosine.

The 10 acids that our body cannot produce are called essential acids. Essential acids must be consumed through nutrition and are arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.

Both arginine and histidine can be produced by an adult body however; a child’s body cannot produce these two acids on their own.

Arginine acids are actually what aids in a man’s capability to enjoy sex by allowing blood flow to his manhood and help lessen the chances of a low sperm count. Arginine acids also help keep the immune system healthy by helping to rid the body of negative elements. In addition, the acid helps regulate the body’s fat intake by allowing the growth of muscle through hormones.

Histidine acids are essential for the body’s growth and repair of tissues. The acid also aids in the ability to produce blood cells and helps the body cope with exposure to radiation danger.

Isoleucine acids keep our bodies from a rise in blood sugars and helps with any damage that is done to our bodies such as a cut or pulled muscle.

Leucine acids aids in the repair of any damage that is done to our bodies as well. In addition the acid helps promote the growth of hormones.

Lysine acids help keep bones strong and healthy by distributing the calcium your body needs. Lysine acids also minimizes in the production of cold sores.

Methionine acids help promote healthy hair, nails and skin. It also aids in the fight against buildup of fat in your body’s organs and helps remove any harmful metals that may be absorbed into the body.

Phenylalanine acids are what produce the chemical norepinephrine, which keeps us alert and helps prevent serious mood swings that can cause conditions such as depression.

Threonine acids aids in the removal of fat from major organs such as the liver.

Tryptophan acids help us sleep and keep insomnia at a minimum. The acid also aids in reducing the mood swings that can cause depression in many people.

Valine acid is essential for energy needed for muscle growth and aids in the reduction of stress by increasing our body’s ability to relax.

In conclusion, all of the acids that combine into amino acids are essential in keeping our bodies strong and healthy, but nothing is as essential as the power we have, to make sure we are getting those acids that our bodies need.
