There are nine essential amino acids:

  • Histidine
  • Isoleucine
  • Leucine 
  • Lysine 
  • Methionine 
  • Phenylalanine 
  • Threonine 
  • Tryptophan 
  • Valine 
Nonessential amino acids 

Nonessential amino acids can usually be synthesized by healthy human body from the foods that we eat each day.The essential amino acids however must be obtained through the daily diet.

There are eleven non essential amino acids-

  • Arginine
  • Glutamine
  • Tyrosine
  • Cysteine, 
  • Glycine 
  • Proline 
  • Serine 
  • Ornithine 
  • Alanine 
  • Asparagine 
  • Aspartate 
Some more conditional amino acids-
  • Arginine
  • Glutamine
  • Tyrosine
  • Cysteine
  • Glycine
  • Proline
  • Serine, 
  • Ornithine

Role of protein in the body

Protein has a number of important roles in the human body including-

  • Repair of body cells
  • Build and repair muscles and bones
  • Provide a source of energy 
  • Regulate many important metabolic processes in the body

On the other hand sports nutrition products and infant formulas often use hydrolyzed whey protein for these reasons.a recent clinical study has also found that a specific type of hydrolyzed whey protein was helpful in lowering blood pressure.

Symptoms of protein deficiency


Protein is very important for bodybuilders and infant and adults dieters and for everybody,since athlete and bodybuilders workout often protein levels become depleted.By being a direct precursor  to building muscles and essential amino acids such as glutamine (a muscle enhancer,endurance builder and muscle deterioration reducer).

The content from high quality protein not only can,but will helps one muscle recover and grow faster by bring up the level protein deficiency.

With dieting and those wishing to lose some extra fat,whey protein can be very useful because a good intake of protein balances blood sugar levels,while carbohydrates cause blood sugar levels to fluctuate.

when the blood sugar levels stay balanced one is not as prone to rampant eating and has more energy and greater and fat loss.Protein allows a person to control his or her diet effectively,most people who want to change their body could benefits from whey protein supplementation.However ,since protein is naturally found in many food items deficiency is not a problem.

How much protein do i need

Training athletes often consume 24 grams of protein per day bodybuilders who want serious gains and burning serious calories,bodybuilder generally consume 150 grams of protein per day according to height and weight and calories need.

Extremely high doses of protein whey supplements are not recommended  as this will cause the body liver to be overloaded and you wont get the same benefits as with a consistent lower amount taken three to five times per day.

Consuming protein supplements can help deter the effects of over training-protein intake of approx 0.88 grams per pound of body weight resulted in increased prevention of over training.This study was conducted at ball state university on 16 weight trained men, they were put on a 4 weeks over training program where they did 8-12 reps maxex for three sets,eight exercises for the first two weeks,then five sets, five exercises for 3-5 reps mexex for the next two weeks.The men chosen to receive either an amino acid supplements or a placebo for the duration of the four weeks (0.88 grams/lb body weight/day), those that were given the amino acids had measurable positive changes in total testosterone, the ratio of testosterone to the the protein that transport it , and hemoglobin compared to those given a placebo.This appears to prove adequate protein consumption is the key to making gains. Be sure to get enough protein (approx 1 gram per lb of body weight).

Protein taken with carbohydrates is better than protein alone for muscle building,as you know the post workout meal shake is the most important meal for to increase anabolism.Make sure next time you are getting some carbs in your post workout shakes for best results.
