Topato
Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid that is part of the composition of proteins in the human body. Tyrosine maintains normal function of the thyroid, pituitary and adrenal glands, as well as forming white and red blood cells.
SerineSerine
13 Jan.
Topato
Serine is a nonessential amino acid, synthesized in the body on a glycine base, which requires large quantities of folic acid, vitamin B3 and vitamin B6. As an important amino acid, serine optimizes cell processes, skin regeneration and hydration.
ThreonineThreonine

Topato
Proline is a nonessential amino acid, needed to create collagen. Proline can be synthesized by glutamic acid. Since it is nonessential, this means that proline can be synthesized by the body but it can also be obtained through food.
