The virtues of amino acids
Proteins in our food contribute to the formation of all the tissues in the body.
When proteins are created in our body, sequences of amino acids relatively long called “polypeptides” are conceived in a determined order by our genetic code. The DNA (our genetic code) is our personal library where all the necessary information to the production and regeneration of our tissues and organs is contained. Therefore, our DNA plays a major role keeping one of the best-kept secrets in natural health. This secret is based on twenty amino acids that are the fundamental bricks from which all the living organisms are created.
“These twenty amino acids help form the thousands of proteins found in our body. For example, it is from these twenty amino acids extracted from food that our body can form the following elements: tendons, cartilage, bones, blood, hair, nails, skin, muscles and nerves. They can also help digestion (stomach enzymes), detoxify poisons, and fight illnesses.”
This means that, according to the regeneration needs our body has, the enzymes (which can be compared to construction workers) will gather amino acids to then duplicate the information in our DNA in order to build new proteins which will carry out specific functions in our body.
