Essential amino acids (abbreviated EAA) are essential components. Essential means that the body cannot produce or synthesize these amino acids itself and therefore has to take them in through food or appropriate dietary supplements. The essential amino acids include L-leucine, L-isoleucine, L-valine, L-lysine, L-phenylalanine, L-threonine, L-tryptophan and L-methionine. Conditionally essential (that is, only in certain situations such as growth or disease) amino acids are histidine and cysteine. The greatest importance lies in their function as protein building blocks . Furthermore, they are involved in the formation of the body's own substances (such as hormones and messenger substances) and are used for wound healing, energy supply and for the Muscle growth needed.
