What is an amino acid?

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Protein powders made from milk (whey, isolate, casein, hydrolysate) and eggs are complete proteins. Protein powder from plant-based sources are made from cereals, peas, lentils or beans.
Proteins are composed of 20 amino acids. The essential amino acids are not produced naturally by the body. They are found in food and in dietary supplements. These are lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, histidine, isoleucine, leucine and valine. L-carnitine is a conditionally essential amino acid (to be taken only in the case of illness).
Semi-essential amino acids are arginine, cysteine, glutamine, glycine, proline and tyrosine. Non-essential amino acids are produced by the body. These are alanine, asparagine, aspartate, glutamate and serine.

What are amino acids used for?

The various types of amino acids have a particular role in the body. You can select your category of amino acids based on your needs.
If you are looking to build muscle mass, the preferred amino acids are BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids). BCAAs are immediately metabolized in the muscle, they are not stored in the liver. BCAAs are a group of 3 essential amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) which help support muscle growth, recover after training, and conserve muscle mass during periods of inactivity, and improve the synthesis of proteins. They delay muscle fatigue and improve performance.
EEAs (Essential Amino Acids) are essential amino acids that are very important for the well-being of metabolic functions. They consist of essential amino acids (that the body can not synthesize on its own) which are present in muscle proteins. Their field of action is larger than that of BCAAs. EAAs reduce muscular fatigue and allow to prolong effort during training and improve muscle performance.
Amino acids help support recovery, fight muscle breakdown and improve muscle synthesis. They increase energy and promote performance. As for glutamine, it is a type of amino acid that transports nitrogen from the muscles and prevents muscle catabolism. It is the primary source of energy for cells that help strengthen the immune and digestive systems. Glutamine taken as a food supplement helps restore the levels of glutamine in the blood following an intensive and prolonged training, while helping muscle cell repair.
