Amino acids are organic compounds made up of nitrogen , hydrogen , carbon and oxygen along with a variable side chain group . Some of the essential amino acids of our body are methionine , threonine ,lysin , isoleucine ,histidine , leucine , tryptophan etc .
Types of amino acids">acids :- There are two type of amino acids which are
1 Essential Amino Acid :- They can't be made by your body and need other sources to fulfill their need in the body . Sources of essential amino acid are E.g. Meat , Egg , Poultry etc .
2 Non Essential Amino Acid :- These type of amino acid can be made by the body itself and there are no need to take them from outside sources .
1 Valine :- It is a three branched chain amino acid meaning it has a chain branching off to one side of its molecular structure . It help stimulate muscle growth and regeneration and involve in energy production .
2 Phenylalanine :- It is a precursor for the neurotransmitters tyrosine , epinephrine , dopamine , norepinephrine and epinephrine . It play an important role in structural and functional properties of proteins and enzymes and the production of other amino acid .
3 Threonine :- It is a principal part of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin , which are important components of skin and connective tissue . It play important role in fat metabolism and immune functions .
4 Tryptophan :- Though often associated with causing drowsiness , tryptophan has many other functions . It is needed to maintain proper nitrogen balance and is a precursor to serotonin , a neurotransmitter that regulates your appetite , aleep and mood .
5 Methionine :- It plays an important role in metabolism and detoxification . It is also necessary for tissue growth and absorption of zinc , minerals and selenium that are vital to your health .
6 Isoleucine :- These are three branched chain amino acids which help in muscle metabolism and is heavily concentrated in muscle tissue . It is very useful for hemoglobin , immune function and energy regulation .
7 Leucine :- It is also a branched chain amino acid that is critical for protein synthesis and muscle repair . It also help regulate blood sugar level , produce growth hormones and stimulates wound healing .
8 Lysine :- It plays a major roles in protein synthesis , enzyme production , hormone and absorption of calcium . It also help in energy production , immune function and the production of collagen and elastin.
9 Histidine :- It is used to produce histamine , a neurotransmitter that is used to immune response , sleep wake cycles , sexual function and digestion . It is critical for maintaining the myelin sheath a protective barrier that surrounds your nerve cells .
1 Help to improve Mood and Sleep :- Serotonin is an essential regulator of sleep , mood and behaviors . While low serotonin level have been linked to depressed mood , sleep disturbances etc
2 Boost Exercise Performance :- The three branched chain essential amino acids are widely used to alleviate fatigue , improve athletic performance and stimulate muscle recovery after excercise .
3 Can Prevent Muscle Loss :- Muscle loss is a common side effect of prolonged illness and bed rest especially in older adults .Essential amino acids have been found to prevent muscle breakdown and preserve lean body mass.
4 Can Promote Weight Loss :- Some studies reveal that amino acids may effective in stimulating fat loss
