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.

Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.

Key Benefits

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

Suggested Use

Add your preferred amount of water or fruit juice into our shaker. Then add 15g, shake and consume immediately. Use twice daily - one serving before and after your workout.

Note: We advise that all servings are measured using an accurate set of scales. While we make every attempt to provide an accurate equivalent measure using our Myprotein scoops, these are only approximate and are not a substitute for using a standardised measuring device.

Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dose. This product is a food supplement and therefore should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. Store in a cool dry place, out of the reach of young children.

The smell is horrible, which isnt a huge issue. The taste is just so bad... REALLY BAD, its quite bitter and its just repulsive (have to chug it and try not to heave, you cannot leave it in your mouth). I have mixed it with water (Bad Idea), Chocolate whey (Very bad idea) and really strong squash (Also quite bad) Hopefully overtime i will get used to the taste, but for now i will take half dosages twice as frequent as to avoid a strong taste. The mixibility is alright, you just have to use a shaker as it wont mix if stirred. The effectivness of the product however is very good, Strength and Size gains seem to have sped up and recovery has definitely got better. If you have a weak stomach and cannot bring yourself to drink something that tastes like this then i would not reccomend it, its a challenge just getting it down, however if you are prepared to endure this for the VERY good benefits of taking it then i'd say its worth it. Good Luck.

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.

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.

I was looking for something to replace Whey after my training sessions and wanted something that would mix with a greens powder I have. I decide to give MyProtein EAA's a try and I couldn't be happier with it. It's been really effective these last 2 weeks of using it every day and I've found that I have heaps more energy after a really tough workout. It's also helped me cut down total consumed calories too. Would highly recommend and I will be re-purchasing.

Just tried out the product so can't comment on effect at the moment. The taste is not bad at all. I put it in my protein shake (unflavored) and can't really taste the EAA at all. The mix-ability is good, obviously cant compare with whey but a quick shake will do the trick.

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.

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.

I have a strong stomach and can put up with most horrible tastes in the name of gains, but this product is unbearable, smells like cat food and urine, tastes even worse, tried mixing with various flavoured liquids but nothing masked it, do yourself a favour and get the tablets. Very poor mixability as well, so it's even harder to get it down the hatch as it bubbles up and becomes foamy. GET THE TABLETS

As far as the product goes for what it says on the tin (packet) it does exactly as it should and I am overly impressed with the aminos. However it mixes just as well as oil does with water, leaving a thick foam on top of your mix. I purchased the unflavoured, in short purchase a flavour because it's like adding a rusty piece of lead to your mix.

After years of experimenting with different eating patterns I have found that having a huge breakfast gives me energy for most of the day and saving my appetite for a huge dinner guarantees great sleep and psychological ease when cutting/maintaining. Training in the early afternoon left me with a 3 hour gap in which I had no real hunger or appetite for a shake but some light fatigue which wouldn't subside with bcaas. Then I tried these and.. problem solved! Much better recovery, no stupid "missing the anabolic window" insecurities, no gulping down a shake you don't really want to drink. The taste is bad but hey, these are ready building blocks for muscle, no digestion required, I don't care about the taste!

Goes Well With:

just enough water to drink it all at once. a pinch of salt and a bit of sugar will neutralise some of the taste

Good quality products on really affordable prices. The Impact Whey protein from Myprotein was checked in several independent laboratories, and all the tests have shown good results (it's a proper whey protein without adding any cheap stuff). As particularly about essential amino acids from Myprotein didn't check them in labs, but sure that they should also be of a good quality and the price is also really smart. Good stuff!

Using BCAAs for a while now but this edition beats it all. Could feel the effect right down at the beginning and it's an absolute must for any hard gainer. Smells like cat food (no kidding) bringing back the childhood memories with my lil buddy, tastes actually pretty OK. Mixing it with 50ml of water, goes down in a second right before I move onto the main shake - this way the taste isn't even noticeable. I wouldn't refuse a cherry blast flavouring though. Just another excellent product from myprotein. Well done guys.

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!

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

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.

The Essential Amino Acids tastes awful. It mixes well with boiling water when you leave it. I personally use boiling water with squash and mix and stir it profusely then leave it for 5 minutes, mix again and hey presto you can drink it. After my workout, I just throw it in my water bottle, run the hot water, shake it and drink it straight down. It will never taste good as it is really bitter, but I have got very used to it now. I have recommended this and Impact Diet Whey to all my mates as the results have been awesome!

Essential Amino Acids are excellent value for money, I bought this product and within a week I noticed the benefits. I bought unflavored and mixed it with Myprotein's BCAA, LGlutamine, creatine and their whey protein. Taste wise it's better with juice or applied to a protein. I would recommend using a mixer as it sticks to a spoon and clumps. Myprotein gave me the shaker free with my order.

Yes, Essential Amino Acids taste foul when just mixed with water. Yes, it takes a long time to dissolve (about 10 minutes). But taste can be offset with something else (I take a mouthful of orange juice after downing the aminos) and in the two weeks I've been taking this product, already I can feel that I've gained muscle and strength. I initially bought 250g to try, and just ordered another 500g.

I mix this with my morning shake and also with my intra work out one. It mixes very well and whilst it does need the additon of flavouring once again is well worth the effort. I notice a fairly immediate increase in fullness whilst training and enjoy being safe in the knowlwedge that I'm well covered for all my aminos. I'll never prove it but my current contest prep would not be the same without this product and I've no doubt I am preserving prescious muscle whilst carbs are low. I'd recommend 8g twice a day with food. Thanks

I bought these Essential Amino Acids on recommendation of a friend. It has a bit of everything that I need in it so I don't have to pay out for several other amino acid products. I consume it in my shakes before and after a training session, I also mix it with an early cup of coffee. I have been using it for just over a month and I have noticed a difference in myself and my training, this is a fantastic product if you are on a budget. I will be buying more of this in the future, many thanks My Protein Team.
