|Key Amino Acids||(typical)|
Amino acids play central roles both as building blocks of proteins and as intermediates in human metabolism. There are 20 amino acids found within human proteins. Proteins not only catalyze all (or most) of the reactions in living cells, they control virtually all cellular processes. Unlike fat and starch, the human body does not store excess amino acids for later use—the amino acids must be in your food every day.
Humans can produce 10 of the 20 amino acids. The other 10 (essential amino acids, with histidine as conditionally essential based on age) must be supplied in food. Failure to obtain enough of even 1 of the 10 essential amino acids, those that we cannot make, results in degradation of the body's proteins—muscle and so forth—to obtain the one amino acid that is needed.

*Essential Amino Acids
Note: While collagen is great for hair, skin, and nails, it is not a good source of essential amino acids. For example collagen is low in tryptophan at 0mg per serving. You must get all 9 essential amino acids from a complete protein source like meat, eggs, lentils/beans, and tofu OR from full spectrum protein powder that contains all essential amino acids.
