The majority of our cells and tissue are made up of amino acids, and they are essential for many important bodily functions such as the structuring of cells. They often referred to as the ‘building blocks’ of protein because they are the compounds used by the body to form proteins. These proteins are required by the human body for repair, maintenance and growth of tissue.

Amino acids fall under two classifications; ‘essential’ and ‘non-essential’. Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body and must be supplied by foods including milk, cheese, eggs, certain meats, vegetables, nuts and grains. Non-essential amino acids are made by the body from the essential amino acids or the normal breakdown of proteins.
