Protein and Amino Acids - 10th November, 2021

It is no surprise that protein plays an important role in the synthesis of muscles, growth of the body.

Protein, in turn, is made up of molecules called Amnio Acids. They make up the building blocks of life.

When proteins are digested and broken down, all that is left is amino acids. These help you break down food, repair body tissue, synthesise protein, and help grow your body and other bodily functions.

There are three types of amino acids: Essential, Nonessential and Conditional.

Our body does not make essential amino acids; instead, we get them from the food we eat. Dairy, Fish, Meat, Poultry and beans are good sources of proteins. While dairy, meat and poultry have all the needed amino acids, vegetarians need to consume various legumes and beans to acquire the acids.

Nonessential amino acids are those that our body can make without the need for food.

Conditional amino acids are given to people who are undergoing some condition like fever or other bodily stress.

Protein and Amino Acids are essential for a fit lifestyle. A balanced diet with protein is paramount to fitness, go ahead, eat those protein sources till you can no more.
