Amino acids

Amino acids

Amino acids are essential for human health and well-being, with particularly significant benefits for athletes due to their roles in muscle growth, recovery, and overall physical condition. Here are some of the key benefits of amino acids for athletes:

  1. Muscle Growth and Repair: Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are necessary for muscle repair and growth following workouts. Leucine, isoleucine, and valine, known as branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), are especially important in promoting protein synthesis and reducing muscle breakdown processes.

  2. Energy Source: Some amino acids can be used as an energy source during workouts, especially when carbohydrate reserves are low. This can help reduce muscle fatigue and improve workout efficiency.

  3. Increased Endurance: BCAAs, particularly leucine, can help reduce the production of serotonin, which promotes a sense of fatigue in the brain. This can increase athletes' endurance and delay the feeling of fatigue.

  4. Improved Recovery: Amino acids help accelerate the recovery process after intense workouts by reducing muscle damage and promoting faster recovery dynamics.

  5. Immune System Support: Intense workouts can temporarily weaken the immune system, but certain amino acids, such as glutamine, can help strengthen immune function and reduce the risk of infections.

  6. Better Physical and Psychological Condition: Some amino acids affect neurotransmitters in the brain, potentially improving mood, reducing stress, and enhancing sleep quality, all of which are important for athletes' recovery and overall well-being.

Amino acids can be obtained from various food sources, including meat, fish, eggs, and certain plant proteins. However, athletes sometimes choose supplements, especially during periods of intensive training or competition, to ensure optimal intake and achieve the best results.

  • BCAA
    <h5>What Are BCAAs?</h5> <p>Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine.</p> <p>BCAA supplements are commonly taken in order to boost muscle growth and enhance exercise performance. They may also help with weight loss and reduce fatigue after exercise.</p> <h5>BCAAs consist of three essential amino acids:</h5> <ul> <li>Leucine</li> <li>Isoleucine</li> <li>Valine</li> </ul> <p>These amino acids are grouped together because they are the only three amino acid to have a chain that branches off to one side.</p> <p>Their molecular structure looks like this:</p> <p><img src="https://www.emedical.lt/img/cms/BCAA-feature-e1550499392531.jpg" alt="What is BCCA? BCAA amino acids sport supplements nutrition Health scheme" width="80%" /></p> <p>Like all amino acids, BCAAs are building blocks your body uses to make proteins.<br />BCAAs are considered essential because, unlike non-essential amino acids, your body cannot make them. Therefore, it is essential to get them from your diet.</p>
  • L-Arginine
    <p>Conditional amino acids.</p> <div class="vitamins-monograph-content overview-content">L-arginine is a chemical building block called "an amino acid." It is obtained from the diet and is necessary for the body to make proteins. L-arginine is found in red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. It can also be made in a laboratory and used as medicine.</div> <div> <div class="vitamins-monograph-content overview-content">L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. L-arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body.</div> </div>
  • L-Glutamine
    <p>In human blood, glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid. Glutamine is an α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. Its side chain is similar to that of glutamic acid, except the carboxylic acid group is replaced by an amide. It is non-essential and conditionally essential in humans, meaning the body can usually synthesize sufficient amounts of it, but in some instances of stress, the body's demand for glutamine increases, and glutamine must be obtained from the diet.</p> <p>The dietary sources of glutamine includes especially the protein-rich foods like beef, chicken, fish, dairy products, eggs, vegetables like beans, beets, cabbage, spinach, carrots, parsley, vegetable juices and also in wheat, papaya, Brussels sprouts, celery, kale and fermented foods.</p>
  • L-Carnitine
    <p><span>Carnitine helps make energy in your body. Most carnitine comes from the </span>liver<span> and </span>kidneys<span>, but you also get some from food.</span></p> <p></p> <p>Carnitine, derived from an amino acid, is found in nearly all cells of the body. Its name is derived from the Latin <em>carnus</em> or flesh, as the compound was isolated from meat. Carnitine is the generic term for a number of compounds that include L-carnitine, acetyl-L-carnitine, and propionyl-L-carnitine [<a href="https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Carnitine-HealthProfessional/#en1" class="fscopy_nounderline">1</a>,<a href="https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Carnitine-HealthProfessional/#en2" class="fscopy_nounderline">2</a>].</p> <p>Carnitine plays a critical role in energy production. It transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria so they can be oxidized (“burned”) to produce energy. It also transports the toxic compounds generated out of this cellular organelle to prevent their accumulation. Given these key functions, carnitine is concentrated in tissues like skeletal and cardiac muscle that utilize fatty acids as a dietary fuel </p>
  • Taurine
    <div class="vitamins-monograph-content overview-content">Taurine is a type of chemical called an amino sulfonic acid. It occurs naturally in the human body and has many important functions. Taurine is found in large amounts in the brain, retina, heart, and blood cells called platelets. The best food sources are meat, fish, and eggs.<br /><br />The body usually makes taurine on its own. But some people cannot make it and need to get taurine from their diet or supplements. Breast milk is rich in taurine, but infants who are not breastfed do not get enough taurine and do not have the ability to make it, so taurine is often added to infant formulas. It is also added to the formulas used for tube-feeding in adults.<br /><br />People take taurine for congestive heart failure (CHF) and swelling (inflammation) of the liver (hepatitis). It is also used for athletic performance, boosting energy, diabetes, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.</div> <div class="vitamins-monograph-content overview-content"></div> <div> <div class="vitamins-monograph-content overview-content">Taurine has important functions in the heart and brain. It helps support nerve growth. It might also benefit people with heart failure by lowering blood pressure and calming the nervous system. This might help prevent heart failure from becoming worse.</div> </div>
