Did you know: amino acids play a key role in regulating the body’s immune response?
Amino acids have important roles in the body, such as intermediates in metabolism, catalysts for most of the important reactions in living cells, as well as regulation of the immune system.
The immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues and organs which protect the human body against attack from foreign bodies, which could potentially lead to illness and disease. It is designed to defend against a wide variety of pathogenic organisms, such as bacteria and viruses.
Not only do amino acids play a key role in regulating the body’s immune response, but a deficiency of dietary protein or amino acids has long been known to impair immune function and increase the susceptibility of humans to infectious disease (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17403271). The lack of protein adversely affects the immune system and its ability to respond to foreign bodies. However, supplementation of certain amino acids can significantly increase one’s capacity to resist infections as well as heal from them. This supplementation, or, “immunonutrition,” assists the optimal synthesis and concentration of a variety of immune related proteins (including cytokines and antibodies). The amino acids feed into and impact the regulation of key metabolic pathways in immune cells, balancing and boosting the immune system.
