Amino Acids Make Protein
Proteins make up 20% of our bodies, or about half of our solid body mass.
There are roughly 100,000 types of proteins that make up our bodies.
Proteins are essential for building nearly every part of our bodies. Our skin, hair, muscles and internal organs, red and white blood cells and our hormones all depend on proteins for structure and function.
These proteins are made from chains of amino acids. There are roughly 100,000 types of proteins that are made from just 20 amino acids.
Amino acids are essential to humans and every other living creature on the planet. Without them, we could not live.
