Amino Acids

Amino acids are essential for the treatment of Lyme disease because they are the building blocks that make up proteins. Proteins provide structure for all living things and participate in the vital chemical processes that sustain life. Sound important??? 

There are 20 amino acids, 9 of them are essential amino acids, and include histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. These 9 essential amino acids cannot be manufactured by the body and must be obtained from food or supplements. The rest are non-essential, meaning they can be manufactured by the body from other amino acids, and include alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, ornithine, proline, selenocysteine, serine, and tyrosine.
