Amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, occur in all tissues of the human body and are the foundation of protein in its purest form. Humans acquire amino acids by synthesizing them in the body (nonessential amino acids) or by ingesting them (essential amino acids) in foods, beverages and nutritional supplements.
