BODYBUILDING & TRAINING
Amino acids are the chemical units or "building blocks" that make up proteins. Protein provides the structure for all living things. Next to water, protein makes up the greatest portion of our body weight. Protein makes up the muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, glands, nails, hair and are essential for bone growth. Enzymes and hormones that catalyze and regulate all bodily processes are protein. Dietary amino acids are classified as "essential" or "non-essential".
Essential amino acids cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet or ill-health results. The non-essential amino acids are also essential for health but can be syntesised inthe body fromt he essential amino acids.
Both esssential and non-essential amino acids are resembled as hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters (chemical messengers), antibodies and nutrient carriers.
BCAA: (Branched Chain Acids: L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine). Muscle tissue is largely composed of BCAA's which are use for energy production and protein synthesis.
