EAA are essential for humans
is the English acronym for essential amino acids
. The so-called EAA are absolutely vital substances. The body is unable to produce its own essential amino acids
and is reliant on their consumption as part of daily nutrition.
A distinction is made between essential and non-essential amino acids. The body is able to produce these protein building blocks itself and is hence not dependent on their regular external intake.
play an important role in the metabolism and in the immune system. They are involved in building proteins
and are hence contributors to the anabolic processes (muscle growth).
The essential amino acids include L-Phenylalanine, L-Tryptophane, L-Threonine, L-Lysine, L-Valine, L-Methionine, L-Leucine and L-Isoleucine. Some amino acids such as L-Histidine or L-Tyrosine are classified as essential for babies and infants, but are only semi or non-essential for adults.
