Why should we take amino acids?
There are approximately 28 known amino acids that when combined together make up hundreds of proteins that are present in all living things. In order for all the vitamins and minerals we intake on a daily basis to work properly, amino acids are an imperative part of our lives.
Our liver produces 80% of our amino acids - the non essential amino acids, which can be manufactured by the body from other amino acids obtained from dietary sources. The other 20% are produced by a healthy diet and these are called essential amino acids which can not be manufactured by the body and need to be obtained from our diets. The importance of proper amino acid levels is to insure that our bodies have enough protein for every
day function. They enable all the vitamins and minerals to perform their jobs properly.
