Hi,

Nonessential amino acids are naturally occurring amino acids that the human body can synthesize for itself, and no need to supplement my diet.

There are 11 non-essential amino acids but in children, there are two of them are essential. So the total number of non-essential amino acids for new norms will be nine.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
