Amino Acid profile

Protein is crucial to any diet. However, not all protein sources are able to provide all of the essential amino acids that the body needs to function properly.

What are amino acids?

Amino acids are compounds that play many critical roles in your body.They’re needed for vital processes like the building of proteins and synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.

What are the 9 essential amino acids?

Your body needs 20 different amino acids to grow and function properly. Though all these 20 are important for your health, only 9 amino acids are classified as essential: Histidine (his), Isoleucine (Ile), Leucine (Leu), Lysine (Lys), Methionine (Met), Phenylalanine (Phe), Threonine (Thr), Tryptophan (Trp), Valine (Val)

 

 An essential amino acid is an amino acid that our bodies cannot synthetize and must get from a food source.

Many plant-based proteins actually lack one or more of essential amino acids, which means that a combination of different source of proteins must be regularly consumed to achieve adequate nutrition.

Unlike some protein sources, Lynside® ProteYn provides all 9 essential amino acids.
