What are Essential Amino Acids (EAAs)?

Recent published studies have shown that to stimulate protein synthesis and spark anabolism, only Essential Amino Acids (EAA) are necessary. Non-essential amino acids (NEAA) aren’t (protein powders have both EAA and NEAA). You don’t need a lot either. EAA are so efficient, researchers have found that only 6 grams, orally-delivered, are necessary (this is the precise amount in each pack of Animal Nitro). However, it’s not just a matter of throwing in 6 grams of EAA. For example, you can’t put them into tablets. Tablets, with all the fillers and coatings, prevent the EAA from being utilized by the body efficiently. That’s why Animal Nitro comes only in quick-dissolving capsules. The ratio of EAA are important too. We’ll talk about this in a second…

Where does Essential Amino Acids come from?

Essential Amino Acids have been researched extensively in the past few years and the results have been exciting. Landmark studies coming from the University of Texas (Galveston) have shown that oral EAA supplementation can provide important benefits for weight training athletes. From the research, several important points stand out—the type of aminos used (EAA), the form (Free Form), and the dose (smaller doses orally delivered are effective) are all important. When it comes to enhancing the anabolic drive, nothing is as efficient or as effective as EAAs — not a protein shake (whey protein), not food, nothing.

Who needs it and what are some symptoms of deficiency?

Amino acids are essential to the human body. Bodybuilders can especially benefit from supplementing amino acids because they aid in repair, growth, and development of muscle tissue. The body, through assimilation of amino acids, produces over 50,000 proteins and over 15,000 enzymes.

Amino acids are not only responsible for the production of all the body's enzymes (including digestive enzymes), but they also play a key role in normalizing moods, concentration, aggression, attention, sleep, and sex drive. Scientists, experts, and medical professionals agree that getting enough amino acids in one's diet is an important factor in maintaining good nutrition.
