Amino Acids

Sources of Amino Acids

Protein-rich foods are the best sources of amino acids. This includes animal sources such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy, as well as plant-based sources such as beans, nuts, seeds and soy products. It's important to consume a variety of protein-rich foods to ensure adequate intake of all essential and non-essential amino acids.


There are also many amino acid supplements available on the market, although it's always best to obtain nutrients from whole foods whenever possible.
