Amino acids are amazing and marvelous things. They fulfill the basic requirements of well being like vitamins and minerals and also facilitate growth, health, and good functioning of the body. They do play an important role in muscle building, weight loss and fitness. When it comes to bodybuilding, and weight training, supplements are of critical importance.
Amino acids are of two types, essential and non essential. The non essential are synthesized by the body itself, when nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen source are present in appropriate amounts. The essential are supplied by the diet, as the body cannot synthesize these to meet nutritional needs. The essential one must be obtained from your nutritional intake. When we eat a meal we do not pay much attention to the nutrition content of food but the nutrition content of the meal determines our health and wellness.
