Valine is an essential amino acid required for numerous biological functions in humans and other mammals. It is important for the production of proteins, enzymes, and hormones, and is necessary for cell growth and repair. Valine also plays a role in energy metabolism, helping the body convert carbohydrates, fats, and other energy sources into usable energy. In addition, valine helps maintain a healthy immune system and is involved in the production of neurotransmitters in the brain. Valine is found in a variety of foods, including animal products, legumes, soybeans, nuts, and seeds, as well as some protein supplements.
