The naturally occurring amino acids number about 23 in total and are the molecular building blocks active in proteins. Nine of these are known as essential or indispensable amino acids. Their indispensability accrues from the fact that they must be supplied to the body for it to function correctly, whether or not the user is a bodybuilder. The other 16 were traditionally called nonessential amino acids but are today referred to as conditionally dispensable amino acids. These 16 are usually relied on by the body during emergencies, as a fall-back plan, when the body has to purify them and separate their actual chemical compounds from within other core amino acids.
Most protein sources contain both groups of amino acids. However, research has shown that the ratio in which these two types of amino acids are found in the body is what determines how much a particular kind of food helps the body. The value of a protein is accrued from having more indispensable than nonessential amino acids because this is what gives the building power of a particular protein source. Although such a consideration is not the only factor when determining protein quality in food, it is a pertinent one.
Nutritionists say that protein value and quality also accrues from how the specific amino acids contained interact with other nutrients, like carbohydrates and vitamins. How the amino acids are influenced by the carbohydrates to reduce or amplify the building process is also essential in determining the value of the protein type.
Proteins and peptides are organized as linear polymers; these macromolecules are composed of covalently bonded amino acid residues. The properties of a given organic molecule (such as a peptide or protein) are determined by the sequence of amino acids present. A peptide is a smaller molecule, often consisting of only a few amino acids. Proteins, by comparison, are large and are folded into a particular structural model containing a greater number of amino acids.
Although the essential amino acids like glutamine, leucine, valine, branched-chain amino acids, and isoleucine are of greater importance during muscle growth, the dispensable amino acids are also crucial because they are synthesized slowly to supply a constant growth of raw material. Their speed of synthesis is sometimes too slow for maximal growth of the kind that a bodybuilder may require. Individual metabolic adaptations are also a determining factor when assessing the value of proteins.
Amino acids vary in the body according to a person's metabolic rates and efficiency, in such a way that activates personal differences in the overall effects of amino acids. Digestion efficiency, the rate of breakdown, bioavailability, the rate of absorption, supplementation adequacy and potential, the body’s needs, general health, and other individual conditions may all cause personalized variations in how the types and levels of amino acids in the body will act.
