Amino acids are known as the building blocks of protein, and protein is crucial when building or maintaining muscle mass. It's not just bodybuilders who need amino acids, as anyone interested in sport and everyday activity will benefit.

There are essential and non-essential amino acids (essential amino acids can't be made by the body, so we need them from food or supplements). You'll find them all here in our range of high-quality, reliable amino acid supplements for sport and health.

What are amino acids?

Amino acids are components of protein. Making sure your diet includes the correct ratios of amino acids will ensure the protein in your body can build and maintain muscle tissue, and will help it recover from training and activity.

The essential amino acids are those which our bodies can't create, so we must get them from our foods or from supplements. Taking amino acids in supplement form is an easy and reliable way to get the ideal dose without excess food intake.

Benefits of amino acids

Supplement with essential and non-essential amino acids and help you through your favourite sport and activity. Supplementing with amino acids will ensure your healthy eating plan has no gaps so you can continue to enjoy your favourite activities.

Products

We stock high quality and reliable amino acids, essential aminos, BCAAs, liquid amino acid formulas, complete amino acids and individual amino acids. We also have a great range of sports supplement products such as protein powders and all-in-one shakes, which contain amino acids so you can optimise your sports supplement use.

Holland & Barrett are dedicated to supporting your sport and your health through our range of quality assured products. Browse to find the individual amino acid, or complete formula, which supports you best.

FAQs
What are amino acids?

The building blocks of protein, amino acids are chains of organic compounds which are found in the human body. 

 

They are also used in other processes in our bodies, hormone synthesis.

 

Our bodies use a total of twenty amino acids to keep us healthy and fit.

Essential and non-essential aminos – what’s the difference?

If you have read anything about amino acids before now, you will have heard of essential, non-essential and conditionally essential amino acids.

 

Essential amino acids, of which there are nine in total, are an absolute must. 

 

These nine aminos are not made in our bodies, so they need to be found in food or supplements. 

 

Animal products such as meat, eggs and cheese are the best sources of these compounds, so it can be particularly beneficial for vegans to add an amino acid supplement to their routine.

 

Non-essential amino acids are present in the body, with no need to find an additional food source. 

 

The seven conditionally important amino acids meanwhile are those that are only needed in illness or stress. 

 

Take arginine for example - most people will not require a supplement unless they are very unwell.

What are BCAAs?

Branched chain amino acids, also known as BCAAs, are three essential amino acids; valine, leucine and isoleucine.

 

BCAAs are critical in the formation of muscles, which is why many body builders and fitness models choose a BCAA supplement over any other amino acid supplements. 

 

A ready-made BCAA drink or BCAA powder may help to build muscleand  reduce fatigue. 

 

The pop of amino energy supplied by BCAA supplements can also aid you in reaching workout goals.

Should I be taking lysine supplements?

Lysine is another essential amino acid that most of us will find in our diets. 

 

L-lysine is a building block of collagen  is also thought to aid athletic performance.

Can amino acids help me to lose weight?

No. Amino acid supplements alone will not make the weight drop off. However, they can help you to make the most of a controlled diet and exercise regime.

 

BCAAs, like all protein supplements, are best used to maximise a workout, during which they encourage the body to burn fat and stimulate lean muscle growth.
