American Supps provides amino acids in powder, capsule, tablet or liquid form. However, high-quality amino acids are also found in our proteins. Amino acids are used for muscle building. Protein consists of amino acids.
Amino acids play a very important role in the body and not only for muscle building. At present about 400 amino acids are known, which are responsible for the most diverse biological processes. When talking about amino acids in sports, the most common is the 20 proteinogenic amino acids. Proteinogen means that proteins are formed from these amino acids.
Proteins are the building blocks of the body. Thus, the body consists of proteins and the like. Muscles, connective tissue, skin, hair and nails. But even hormones (messengers) and enzymes (catalysts) are proteins that are formed from amino acids. For the so-called protein synthesis, selected amino acids are linked by peptide bonds in a specific sequence to the polypeptide chain of a protein. Peptides are compounds of amino acids and may have different functions depending on size.
Now it becomes clear why there are so many different proteins and why it is so important that the body is always supplied with all amino acids.
Among the 20 proteinogenic amino acids belong
The body itself can produce some of the amino acids, while there are amino acids which have to be supplied from the outside. In the normal case, the following amino acids are essential
In exceptional cases, such as hereditary growth or under particularly high stress such as illness, stress, physical stress (including strenuous training) and diets or unilateral nutritional forms, even more amino acids can become essential amino acids. The branched-chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine are of particular importance. These are summarized as BCAA and are preferred as muscle protection.
The longer you are concerned with bodybuilding, the more understandable you will be when and why it is useful to supplement your diet with amino acids. The supply of certain amino acids is necessary both during muscle building and in dietary phases, where the body is already supplied with less nutrients.
