The major structural and functional material of body cells are proteins. Proteins consist of long chains of amino acids. Proteins from food must be broken down into amino acids in order for the body to grow and to repair tissues. The human body uses 20 different amino acids to build the proteins it needs. The body can make many of these amino acids, but it cannot produce all of them in the quantities that it needs. Amino acids that must be obtained from food are called essential amino acids. Ten amino acids are essential to children and teenagers for growth. Only eight are essential to adults.
