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.
Glutathione is a sulfur-containing peptide made up of three amino acids: Glutamic acid, Cysteine and Glycine. It is an important water-soluble antioxidant that plays a role in protecting the body from free radicals.* Free radicals can cause oxidative stress, which can lead to premature ageing of cells. It also acts in amino acid transport pathways.
