What are Amino Acids?
Known as “the building blocks of protein”, amino acids are subunits that make up the protein in our body. In fact, amino acids in the form of proteins make up the greatest percentage of our body weight besides water.
There are as many as twenty kinds that are essential to our health. Whether it’s the formation of muscles, energy support, and essential hormone maintenance, each amino acid plays an important and unique role in the body. We offer a wide variety of amino acid supplements:
