Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are formed by joining amino acids into long chains. When we eat protein, the body breaks it down into amino acids, which it uses to build the proteins needed for bone, muscle, cartilage, blood, skin, hair, nails, enzymes, and hormones. No single plant source can provide all 20 amino acids the body needs. Vegans and vegetarians must combine complementary plant protein sources to acquire all the essential amino acids in a proportion similar to what the body requires.
For athletes, the elderly, or people dieting to lose weight, consuming sufficient quantities of the amino acid leucine is essential for building and maintaining lean muscle mass. Leucine also stabilizes blood sugar by modulating insulin signalling and glucose use by skeletal muscle.
High protein diets promote healthy weight loss by increasing satiety and decreasing hunger, thereby helping to reduce total caloric intake. Plus, the body requires more energy to digest protein, so it burns more calories digesting a high protein meal.
