amino acids

Proteins are made up of smaller units called amino acids that are attached to one another by peptide bonds. Like fats and carbohydrates, amino acids are sources of energy and are capable of forming tissues, organs, muscles, skin and hair. Approximately 500 amino acids are know to man. Only 20 of which appear in our DNA.

Below is the list of essential, semi-essential, and non-essential amino acids:

Essential Amino Acids (Body cannot make these):

  • L-phenylalanine
  • L-valine
  • L-histidine
  • L-threonine
  • L-tryptophan
  • L-isoleucine
  • L-methionine
  • L-lysine
  • L-leucine


Semi-essential Amino Acids (Body can make in small amounts):

  • L-arginine
  • L-tyrosine
  • L-cysteine
  • L-glycine
  • L-glutamine
  • L-proline


Non-Essential Amino Acids (Body can make in sufficient amounts):

  • L-alanine
  • L-glutamic acid
  • L-asparagine
  • Asparagine
  • L-serine


Amino acids are essential for building and maintaining muscles. Noni fruit contains 17 of the 20 known amino acids including all 9 of the essential amino acids. Taking Noni internally gives you energy. Applying Noni Lotions topically gives the muscle tissue energy and prevents cramps.
