Amino acids are the metabolic building blocks of the body. In their natural state, amino acids form the basis of life. They are the raw essential materials your body needs to produce cells, bones, hormones, hair, skin and more.
Amino acids are also precursors or the building blocks for our neurotransmitters, messengers that communicate neurological information from one cell to another. They play a major role in shaping everyday life and function.
Take the neurotransmitter serotonin for example.
