Amino acids are chemicals in the body that contain at least one carbon group and at least one amino group. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins, which also determine their characteristic properties. Each protein has its own number and its own amino acid sequence. Amino acids are important for almost all metabolic processes in the body.
There are at least twenty different amino acids in the body and their combinations make up about 50,000 proteins in our body. These are called proteins. Eight of them are said to be necessary and are what we should get from the diet as the body can not synthesize them alone. Another eight are said to be unnecessary as they are synthesized through metabolism (through a process called transaminosis) of the eight essential amino acids and the other four are said to be essential as they are not synthesized in children except as the body matures.
The essential amino acids are valine, threonine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, tryptophan and phenylalanine.
The rest, not necessary, are alanine, arginine, asparagine, asparagine acid, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, histidine, cysteine, proline, serine and tyrosine.
