Amino Acids

Amino Acids are the building blocks of all life, and ultimately these are what our muscles are made out of. In Human nutrition there are 21 different amino acids, 8 essential (which the body cannot manufacture itself) and 13 non essential. 3 of the essential amino acids are also known as Branched Chain amino acids, which is due to their structure. Branched Chain amino acids are often refered to as BCAA's (Valine, Leucine & Isoleucine). BCAA's are the most abundant amino acid within skeletal muscle tissue (striated muscle). Amino acids are therfore a valuable addition to any athlete's supplement regime, regardless of your sport. Amino acids can also aid in recovery from intense training and are therefore great talken post workout with carbohydrates. Because protein foods contain different ratios and amount of amino acids, bodybuilders often supplement with amino acids inbetween meals to help build the quality of the amino acid profile of their solid food meals, thus helping to achieve a more "complete protein".
