What are amino acids?

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and we all know the need for protein to help your body grow and maintain muscle mass. There are twenty different amino acids your body requires, nine of which, named the essential amino acids, your body cannot make and must be obtained through other methods. At Body & Fit, we offer a wide range of essential amino acid products which, along with a healthy diet, can help ensure you get all the amino acids your body needs.

Glutamine the amino acid

Looking for glutamine supplements? Here at Body & Fit we offer a range of glutamine tablets and glutamine powders that help top up stores of this amino acid. Glutamine is one of the most popular of the 20 amino acids and is the most abundant amino acid in muscle. Our Glutamine needs go up during exercise, above what we make in the body. This is why it might be worth considering a powder or tablet. 
 

The leucine trigger

Leucine is an essential amino acid and the most famous of the BCAAs. It is thought to trigger muscle protein synthesis. It can be consumed as part of a protein shake, added to an amino acid drink or even consumed on its own. HMB, a leucine derivative, is also thought to be important and is a key amino acid of interest with those doing resistance training.
