About Amino Acids

Though you may have heard of them before, do you know the benefits amino acids offer? As the building blocks of protein, amino acids provide the means for the body to synthesize the necessary protein for good health. They are a vital part of the way your body functions so it is important for you to get enough. Amino acids have been used as artificial sweeteners (aspartame) and flavor enhancers (monosodium glutamate or MSG). They have also been used for those who suffer from depression.
