Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are needed in several
internal functions of the body. They are classified as “essential”
or “non-essential”, with essential amino acids meaning they
cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet to
maintain good all-round health. Amino acids can be further used by the
body to create hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters, antibodies and nutrient
carriers. A suboptimal intake of the essential amino acids increases the
body’s need for the non-essential amino acids either through diet
or supplementation. Foods that increase amino acid intake are meat, beans,
cheese and eggs.
L-Cysteine is an amino acid, bearing sulphur, which plays a role in metabolism
as it assists the synthesis from fatty acids into energy. It is also involved
in the synthesis of keratin, the protein in skin, hair and nails. It can
be used to make glutathione.
