Amino Acids are the building blocks from which proteins are made. There are 22 so far identified and they can be linked together to form more than 50,000 different proteins. The body continuously breaks down the proteins eaten into amino-acid complexes and free amino acids, which it then recombines to form whatever proteins it needs to maintain itself.
Amino acids supply the raw materials for maintaining the genetic code (DNA), repairing damaged muscle tissue, for cell division, making enzymes, building new connective tissue and making hormones and neurotransmitters.
Eight of the amino acids have traditionally been regarded as "essential" because the body is unable to manufacture them for itself, and they therefore have to be taken in through the food we eat. Not all protein foods contain the same balance of amino acids.
Protein foods of animal origin are regarded as "complete" protein because they contain all the amino acids in an approximately ideal balance. Eggs in particular provide protein that is biologically complete. Vegetable sources vary in their balance of amino acids.
In today's diets, research has found more and more of us are consuming far to much carbohydrate and to little protein. For nutritionist and dieticians alike, this is posing a real concern - especially as new research shows that some of our major health risks may be initiated by such diets.
