What are the foods we need to add in our diet to get essential amino acids?
Amino acids are organic compounds that come together to form proteins in your body. There are 20 amino acids overall, and they each fall into one of three categories: Essential, Nonessential and Conditional. Because your body cannot make the nine essential amino acids itself, you need to get them from the foods you eat. What are the foods we need to add in our diet to get essential amino acids?
@rajan Amino acids are known as the building blocks of protein, which is an important component of every cell in your body. Athletes commonly use leucine, isoleucine, and valine to improve their performance. These amino acids can be metabolized in muscle to provide extra energy during exercise. Research suggests that taking amino acid supplements during recovery days after exercise reduces muscle damage as well as the soreness that comes along with it. Evidence suggests that taking branched-chain amino acids by mouth can improve liver function in people with poor brain function due to liver disease.
