What are Amino Acids?

Organic compounds that contain an amine (-NH2), carboxyl (-COOH) functional groups and side chain (R group) are considered an amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of the body. They bond together to make longer chains, or what we commonly know as proteins. These proteins are an important source of energy for each individual cell in our bodies. Amino acids are generally classified as either essential, semiessential or nonessential. Click here to learn more about the differences between these three types of amino acids.
