acids, such as l-theanine, can even be found to help regulate mood and increase feelings of wellness.
So why aren't people constantly talking about how to get the right amino acids in via your diet? Well, that's largely due to the existence of protein. Protein is effectively a large chain of amino acids stapled together. When you consume protein, your body breaks it down into its constituent amino acids and they are then used for their intended purposes. Not all protein, is equal, though. Protein from certain types of meat and certain types of plant always varies in terms of the amino acid matrix that comprises it. As such, it can be tricky to make sure you're always getting the right amino acids - especially if you're a vegetarian (as you have less choice).
Many people opt to supplement with amino acids in order to ensure they're getting everything they need. Most amino acid supplements only contain 2 or 3 amino acids - these are the amino acids that are involved in the process of building muscle in the human body. L-Isoleucine, L-Valine and L-Leucine are amongst the most common of the amino acids you'll find present in amino acid supplements. Other supplements will opt to add in additional aminos also.
