Essential amino acid

What is Essential amino acid?

Proteins are made up of amino acids. Some amino acids are synthesized by our body in organs like the liver. So we do not always need to take them in our diet. Some of them cannot be synthesized in our body and have to be a part of the diet. Meaning that only food can supply these amino acids. Such amino acids are called essential amino acids.
