amino_acidAmino acids are the principal building blocks of proteins and enzymes. During and after the final assembly of a protein the amino acid content dictates the spatial and biochemical properties of the protein.

Alanine ala a CH3-CH(NH2) –COOH

Alanine is a neutral, genetically coded amino acid. An important source of energy for muscle tissue, the brain and central nervous system, also strengthens the immune system by producing antibodies, helps in the metabolism of sugars and organic acids.

Arginine arg r HN-C9NH2)-NH-(CH2)3-CH(NH20-COOH

Arginine is a neutral, genetically coded amino acid. It is a conditionally essential amino acid. Boosts the immune system, promotes muscle growth and adds fat burning. Supports cardiovascular function, strengthen the heart and can help prevent heart cells from dying due to hypoxia.

Aspartic acid asp d HOOC-CH2-CH 9NH20-COOH

Aspartic acid is a genetically coded amino acid. Aids in the expulsion of harmful ammonia from the body. When ammonia acts on the circulatory system it is highly toxic and this can in turn be harmful to central nervous system. Also increases resistance to fatigue and increases endurance.

Glutamic acid glue g NH2-CH2-COOH

Glutamic acid is an acidic genetically coded amino acid. Rightly considered to be natures brain food by improving mental capacity, helps give a lift from fatigue.

Glycine gly g NH2-CH2-C00H

Glycine is a neutral genetically coded amino acid. Essential in the manufacture of oxygen to the energy that is required during the cell making process. Important in the manufacture of hormones responsible for a strong immune system.

Isoleucine ile I CH3-CH2-CH (CH3)-CH(NH2)-CCOH

Isoleucine is a neutral, genetically coded amino acid. It is essential in human nutrition. Works in conjunction with providing the frame work for the development of other essential biochemical agents in the body, which are utilized for the production of energy.

Leucine leu 1 (CH3) 2-CH-CH2-CH(NH2)-COOH

Leucine is a neutral, genetically coded amino acid. It is essential for human nutrition. Plays a key role in helping muscle cells make protein. One of the most important amino acids for body builders and endurance athletes.

Lysine lys k H2N-(CH2)2-CH(NH2)-C00H

Lysine is a basic genetically coded amino acid. It is essential for human nutrition. Needed for growth to help maintain nitrogen balance in the body, important anti–aging properties.

Methionine met m CH3-S-(CHE02-CH(NH2)-COOH

Methionine is a neutral genetically coded amino acid. It is essential to human nutrition and helps deliver sulphur which assists the hair, skin and nails. Reduces liver fat and protects the kidneys. A natural chelating agent for heavy metals.

Phenylalalanine phe f ph- CH2-CH(NH2) –COOH

Phenylalalanine is a neutral, genetically coded amino acid. It is essential in human nutrition. It is used in elevating the mood as it is closely involved with the nervous system, as well as help with memory and learning.

Proline pro p NH-(CH2)3-CH-COOH

Prolineis a neutral genetically coded amino acid. Important for the proper functioning of joints and tendons. Proline improves skin texture and aids collagen formation and helps counteract the loss of collagen during aging.

Threonine thr t CH3-CH(OH)-CH(NH2)-COOH

Threorine is a neutral, genetically coded amino acid. It is essential in human nutrition. Involved in liver functioning (including fighting fatty liver) lipotropic functions as well as assisting the immune system by helping in the production of anti-bodies

Tryptophan trp w Ph- NH-CH-C-CH2-CH(NH2)-C00H

Tryptophan is a neutral, genetically coded amino acid. It is essential for human nutrition. A natural relaxant, it helps alleviate insomnia by inducing normal sleep, reduces anxiety and depression. Helps reduce the risk of artery and heart spasms.

Valine val v 9CH3)2-CH-CH(NH2)-COOH

Valine is a neutral, genetically coded amino acid. It is essential in human nutrition. It has a stimulating effect and is needed for muscle metabolism, repair and growth of tissue and maintaining the nitrogen balance in the body. Promotes mental vigor muscle co-ordination and calms the emotions.
