Product Overview

Product Overview

What are Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s)?

Amino Acids are complex chemicals that are the building blocks of protein, which are required for the creation of new tissue, and the repair of existing cells. An Essential Amino Acid cannot be synthesised or created by the body and therefore must be supplied from the diet.

 

Essential Amino Acids Benefits

The main essential amino acids required by the body are Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, Lysine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Histidine, Methionine, and Tryptophan. This has 5000mg of Leucine per 15g serving which is higher than the standard whey protein and has zero fat and carbohydrates.

Who are Essential Amino Acids Suitable for?

Essential Amino Acids are recommended for anyone looking to increase their daily intake of amino acids. These can be found in small quantities in natural foods but are found in higher amounts when supplemented.

Key Benefits

  • Building blocks of protein
  • Only be supplied through our diet
  • 5000mg of Leucine per serving

Great Product - Aweful Taste

One of the worst tasting Amino Acids I've ever had, although most of the unflavoured ones are unpleasant. Mixed it with MY PROTEIN WHEY and totally wrecked the normally amazing taste. Not sure what to mix it with, maybe a very powerful juice? Mixes very easily and well unlike many others I've tried that keep floating to the top like flour. Need some more time to really determine the results but from the ingredients I expect great results!

Goes Well With:

A very flavourful drink to cover the horrible taste.

a way to take without the taste

First tried powder in my protein shake... bad move don't try. So next to avoid the horrible upset in my stomach I did this, took a big swig of my drink keeping liquid in mouth then topping up scoop and emptying it in mouth then a quick mix in mouth and gulp it. No horrid taste no queezy stomach and all the benefits. Seems to be working my system a bit better though shoulders mostly when working out seem to get a build up of lactic acid a bit faster than normal now

Great! but hold your nose

i have been using this for a month now, and have noticed less aching the next day and slight gains. i needed something new in my diet as i hit a plateau, so i turned to EAA's. i take this pre workout stacked with MyProtein caffeine powder and it prevents my energy levels dropping during training. highly recommend, but the taste is rancid. hold your nose when drinking it with a little bit of water.

The good, the bad and the ugly

Taste is horrid, really bad, and it doesn't mix very well either, BUT, once you manage to get it down you, the effect is HUGE. Great recovery during and after workout, even a long heavy one. I am amazed in times how much stamina I have in me.. can't live without it, but wow i wish it did not taste so bad. I found that if I mix it with beetroot juice its more or less drinkable, with anything else its just too overpowering.

cheap,effective, unbeatable

This product is the most effective supplement I've EVER taken! This was also my very first purchase and I've been blown away with the results and how fast it works, without a doubt this is a supplement that every strength trainer or bodybuilder should have.

Higher doses (above 5g pre + 5g post workout) give me slight headache, sam as glutamine. So I'm taking it in smaller doses til my body adjusts to it. So far it works. I'm getting a lot less muscle soreness after working out. Mixes perfectly with everything. Tastes like cacao but not so bitter. Really great when mixed with hemp protein. To my friend it tasates horrible so I guess it's just a matter of personal preference.

Taste is bad but great product

Ok the taste of this is disgusting. I'm known for drinking cod liver oil straight from the bottle and having no complaints. The problem is that it is slightly metallic tasting and extremely bitter, the best thing to do is to mix it with some water and orange squash, sugar free and shake it up in a bottle. Leave it for a minute or two and then shake again and consume. Presto! I can't taste the amino Acids anymore and it's great as a PW shake.

Savoury not sweet

Most people complain about this due to it's taste. The problem is everyone seems to try and mix it with something sweet. What I do is make a kind of soup with it. I'm vegan and use pea protein and EAA, both of which don't taste great or mix well. I mix the protein and EAA with herbs, spices, vegetable gravy granules and yeast extract and pour in some boiling water. This makes a lovely spicy pea soup that tastes great and is jam packed with not only protein but lots of other healthy benefits from the herbs and spices.
