Amino acids are the building blocks of the body. They help create proteins that make up muscles, tendons, organs, glands, nails and hair. Without protein, the body wouldn't be able to maintain and repair its cells. In fact, protein makes up the largest portion of weight second only to water. They are broken down into two types. You obtain essential amino acids from diet and non-essential amino acids are manufactured in the body from other sources.
