What are Essential Amino Acids?
Essential amino acids are amino acids (building blocks of protein) that cannot be made by the body. As a result, they must come from food. The 9 essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.

The proper dosage depends on a variety of factors – body weight, activity level, lifestyle stress, overall health, and diet. There are no established daily recommendations for this supplement. As a dietary supplement take 10-15 grams per 100 pounds of bodyweight per day.
There have not been any reported side effects with essential amino acids: excess essential amino acids are usually converted to other amino acid or peptides, used up as energy, or stored up as fat. However, if you have liver or kidney disease, you should not take in high doses of amino acids without asking your doctor. It is crucial that you always speak to a knowledgeable healthcare provider before taking any dietary supplements, including glutamine. This advice is also recommended for anyone suffering from a health condition. Pregnant and nursing women should only take an amino acid such as glutamine after consulting your physician.
