Amino acids are the main component in the make-up of protein. There are 12 amino acids that can be made by the body, however, there are 8 others that are essential acids, meaning that they must be supplied through a high protein diet or the use of amino acid supplements. These amino acids are needed to stabilise metabolism, and maintain sufficient levels of nutrients. They make up each and every cell in our bodies and are vital to bodily functions, when we increase our workouts we use more energy, which in turn means we need to increase our amino acids to 'keep up'.
