Mental and Emotional Wellbeing

Our mental and emotional wellbeing is another vital area where amino acids are required for proper functioning. Communication within the brain and the nervous system occur through chemical “languages”.  These “languages” utilize neurotransmitters to transmit messages from one neuron or nerve cell, to a specific organ such as a muscle or gland. Neurotransmitters are powerful chemicals that influence numerous physical and behavioral processes, including cognitive and mental performance, emotional states, and pain response.

What all that means is that every system in your body requires amino acids to function properly, from your bones and organs to your digestive tract to your brain and nervous system and even your emotional wellbeing. The amazing amino acids are some very powerful little nutrients!

What Are Amino Acids?

Amino acids are the essential building blocks of protein and for the basis of life itself. They are the raw materials for the growth and reproduction of every cell in the body and are present throughout the body. Amino acids are the materials that build the neurotransmitters in your brain, digestive enzymes and the enzymes that work in all metabolic pathways, the immune system and even stem cells. Every bone, organ, muscle, and almost all hormones are made from the combinations of amino acids with the help of vitamins, minerals and other cofactors.
