Just about every body builder knows the importance of taking protein. However, most don't know why. Many just assume that protein builds muscle. What is often overlooked though is the importance of taking amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and more importantly, muscle tissues.

There are twenty-two different amino acids that make up protein. They can be broken down into two groups: the essential and non-essential amino acids. There are eight essential amino acids that are supplied via foods. The other twelve are made inside the body by synthesizing other amino acids. The body will produce 50,000 proteins and over 15,000 enzymes through the assimilation of amino acids. They play a key role in normalizing moods, aggression, sleep and the sex drive.

It is important to keep supplying your body with amino acids since the body is constantly using them to maintain critical functions like your respiratory and circulatory systems.

An amino acid supplement can also help people with deficiencies. The people who are at highest risk for this are vegetarians, people with allergies or stress related fatigue, and hypoglycemics. The main symptom of an amino acid deficiency is trouble digesting food. This is because of a decrease in the production of digestive enzymes.

If you have a deficiency its important to take a supplement because you can get caught in a bad cycle. You need amino acids to make digestive enzymes and you need digestive enzymes to get amino acids out of food. So if you aren't getting
enough amino acids then your levels of them will just keep spiraling downward. That is why this supplement is so important.

For Body Builders

Right after you finish exercising, the blood flow to your muscles is high. Its during this time frame that you can aid muscle growth with amino acids. The problem is that eating a meal with a lot of protein will take a long time to digest and send amino acids to the areas of your body where they're needed. There are two things you can do.

The first option is to eat a meal high in amino acids and protein several hours before working out. Some people may prefer this because it's all natural. However this option is not always available if for example you work out in the mornings. Also, depending on your level of exercise, this may not be enough.

A supplement will deliver amino acids to your muscles during the time when they are most receptive to them. Supplements are the most efficient way to rush these acids to you when you need them.

The recommended dosage is one and a half grams of powder three times daily. This should be enough amino acids to assist in food digestion and bulking up.
