FUNCTIONS ON THE AMINO ACIDS IN THE ORGANISM
Importance of amino acids
Amino acids are essential for proper functioning of our body.
When the body does not get enough proteins (source of amino acids), it uses its reserves (mainly muscle).
You can not imagine a diet without proteins, since, in a long-term, a protein deficiency would be generated, which is one of the most serious types of malnutrition.
Functions of the amino acids in the organism
Amino acids generally perform their functions attached to other amino acids forming peptides (binding few amino acids), polypeptides (binding of several amino acids) or proteins (long chains of amino acids linked together, forming large molecules).
Summary of the main functions of amino acids in the body. Amino acids generally act together forming peptides or proteins, and they exert different functions.
