The most concentrated energy in our body is fats called fatty acids which are absorbed in the body as amino acids. There are 20 types of amino acids and the body makes 10 of them and the other 10 are obtained from your diet. Even if you eat a balanced diet. Infections, trauma, stress, drug use, age and imbalance of other nutrients can affect the availability of the essential amino acids the body makes. The average American eats more than 40% fats and get more carbs from processed packaged food than eating natural organic complex foods, which sacrifices nutrition and risks deficiencies. Best sources of fatty acids (oils): Olive oil and flax seed oil. Next to best: Canola oil, sunflower oil. Butter is ok. Worst: Hydrogenated fats like vegetable shortening, palm kernel oil, and coconut oil. Even if one essential amino acid is missing, the body can not continue proper protein synthesis (breakdown of food). This can cause problems of reduced immunity, infections, impairment of organs, lack of concentration and depression. The skin will flake, thin, lack skin tone, muscle tone, bruise easily, lack of pigmentation, and can't produce antibodies.
