Proteins are found in all cells and carry out a variety of important cellular functions. Proteins are also important structural components of the cell wall. Amino acids are the molecular building blocks of proteins.
Twenty percent of the human body is made up of protein. Proteins play a crucial role in almost all biological processes and amino acids are the building blocks of it. A large proportion of our cells, muscles and tissue is made up of amino acids which are giving cells their structure and also play a key role in the transport and the storage of nutrients.
Amino acids also help with many symbiotic processes that improve various aspects of plants, soil and microbiology. Amino acids are chelators for nutrients and they can be activators or precursors to beneficial growth auxins and phytohormones.
