Amino Acid Supplements

Amino acid supplements are typically thought of as useful for sports and exercise performance. However, depending on the type of amino acid they have a wide range of uses ranging from supporting the immune system to reducing blood pressure.  

 

Amino acids are abundant in nature. They are found in the structure of proteins in a range of plant-based foods like legumes and nuts, and animal-based foods such as eggs, dairy, seafood and meat. There are eight essential amino acids, which are tryptophan, methionine, phenylalanine, lysine, threonine, isoleucine, leucine and valine. The latter three are also reffered to as branched chain amino acids. Histidine, another amino acid, is also termed essential during childhood. So you might be thinking, why take amino acid supplements if my diet is loaded with them? Amino acid supplements have the advantage of being in free-form. That is, they are not contained within a complex protein structure. This by-passes the need to digest and liberate them from the protein molecule, which can be particulaly useful when taken before or during exercise, as they are light on the stomach, or when digestion is impaired due to illness. 

 

However, there is another reason free-form amino acids can be useful. When taking an amino acid individually, absorption may be enhanced due to less competition from other amino acids. This means that higher amounts of one single amino acid can get into the blood, which is helpful when using amino acid supplements therapeutically. You might be surprised at how much amino acids can actually do. Some say that they are the most important nutrients for the human body, after only oxygen and water.
