Amino acids are the basic structural units of proteins, which can provide energy for the body and brain, and are the source of all life substances. The basic unit of protein is amino acid. If the human body lacks any essential amino acid, it will lead to abnormal physiological function, affect the normal process of antibody metabolism, and eventually lead to disease. Similarly, if there is a lack of certain non essential amino acids in the human body, it will lead to the disorder of antibody metabolism. The existence of amino acids in human body not only provides important raw materials for protein synthesis, but also provides material basis for promoting growth and development, normal metabolism and life maintenance. If the human body lacks one of them, it may even lead to the occurrence of various diseases or the termination of life activities. This shows that amino acids are very important in human life activities.
