Amino Acids are the building blocks of proteins. The body needs 22 different amino acids to make up the 50,000 plus proteins that make us.
Amino acids fall into two basic categories: Essential and Non-essential.
Essential amino acids are the nine aminos you must get from your diet.
Non-essential, not that they aren’t important, are the amino acids you can make in your body by combining two or more of the essential amino acids.
Amino acids make the many enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, and other chemical messengers that regulate your body. Some individual amino acids can help with health problems, including heart disease, insomnia, and herpes. 
Most people get all the amino acids they need from the protein in their diets. Protein deficiency is very rare.
