Amino acids

Amino acids are the Building blocks of all Protiens ,

Proteins of all species from bacteria to humans are made up from the same set of 20 standard amino acids .

In this pic :

Essential amino acids = can’t be synthesized in Our Bodies and Must be taken in diet  .. so, we plant them on trees in order to eat them .

Non essential amino acids = Can be synthesized in Our Bodies  , No need to be taken in diet .. so they are thrown as Trash !
