Non-Essential Amino Acids

Non-essential amino acids refer to amino acids that the human body can synthesize by itself or convert from other amino acids, and do not necessarily have to be directly ingested from food. Such amino acids include glutamic acid, glutamine, alanine, glycine, cysteine, aspartic acid, asparagine, proline, serine and tyrosine.

Essential amino acids are mainly derived from food. Non-essential amino acids are mainly derived from the transformation of related substances in the body (transamination conversion, intermediate product pyruvate in the process of sugar metabolism, decomposition of tissue proteins, etc.).

Non-Essential Amino Acids

  • Glycine

Glycine is the simplest natural amino acid. If the human body consumes too much glycine, it will not only be unable to be absorbed and utilized by the human body, but will also break the absorption balance of the human body and affect the absorption of other amino acids, resulting in nutritional imbalance and affecting health.

  • Alanine

Alanine is the basic unit of protein, which can prevent kidney stones, assist in the metabolism of glucose, help relieve hypoglycemia, and replenish body energy. Alanine is mainly used in the synthesis of pantothenic acid, carnosine, etc., and can be widely used in many fields such as daily chemicals, medical and health products, food additives and feed.

  • Proline

Proline is a cyclic imino acid. Proline plays an important role in the human body and can also promote the metabolism of cells and maintain the healthy growth of skin and connective tissue. If the human body lacks proline, it is easy to affect joint function, causing joint pain, persistent soft tissue tension or chronic low back pain. 4-Hydroxyproline can be formed by hydroxylation after proline enters the peptide chain. Hydroxyproline is an important component of animal collagen. In addition, hydroxyproline is also present in a variety of plant proteins, especially involved in the formation of cell walls.

  • Tyrosine

Tyrosine plays an important role in the metabolism, growth and development of humans and animals, and is widely used in food, feed, medicine and chemical industries. Tyrosine can promote the formation of melanin and reduce the symptoms of vitiligo. Tyrosine regulates mood and prevents anxiety, depression, and chronic fatigue. In addition, tyrosine can regulate appetite and help speed up the body's metabolism.

  • Serine

Serine is a neutral aliphatic hydroxyl-containing amino acid. Serine plays a role in fat and fatty acid metabolism and muscle growth. In addition, serine also plays an important role in the manufacture and processing of cell membranes, the synthesis of muscle tissue and the sheath that surrounds nerve cells. D-serine is an important neurotransmitter. As a basic amino acid constituting protein, L-serine is widely used in medicine, food, cosmetics and other industries.

  • Cysteine

Cysteine is one of the natural components of glutathione, and the molecule contains active sulfhydryl groups. Cysteine can participate in various redox reactions in the body and has a certain protective effect on cells, especially liver cells. In addition, cysteine can stimulate hematopoietic function, increase white blood cells and promote the repair of skin damage, and also has a certain detoxification effect on heavy metal poisoning.

  • Asparagine

Asparagine is one of the various amino acids that make up the proteins of living organisms such as the human body. Asparagine and its derivatives are widely used in food science, medicinal chemistry and materials science as important organic building blocks. In medicine, asparagine has the functions of lowering blood pressure, dilating bronchi, resisting peptic ulcer and gastric dysfunction.

  • Aspartic Acid

Aspartic acid is an aliphatic acidic alpha amino acid, which can be used as an ammonia detoxifier, a liver function promoter, a fatigue recovery agent, and the like. The L-isomer of aspartic acid is one of the 20 amino acids that make up proteins and one of the encoded amino acids in protein synthesis.

  • Glutamine

Glutamine, an amide of glutamic acid, can be used to treat gastric and duodenal ulcers, gastritis and hyperacidity, and to improve brain function. The L-configuration isomer of glutamine is the encoded amino acid in protein synthesis.

  • Glutamic Acid

Glutamic acid is an acidic amino acid with two carboxyl groups in its molecule, which can be used to treat hepatic coma and improve children's intellectual development. Glutamic acid is involved in protein metabolism processes in living organisms and many important chemical reactions in animals, plants and microorganisms.

  • Arginine

Arginine is a component of ornithine cycle and has extremely important physiological functions. Arginine promotes wound healing, regulates immune function, and prevents thymus gland degeneration. Arginine is also the main component of sperm protein, which can promote sperm production and provide sperm movement energy.
