Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. About twenty percent of the human body is protein, therefore amino acids make up a large proportion of our cells, muscles, and tissue. Amino acids are essential to many biological processes that happen within our bodies, such as healing and forming muscles.
Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) are not produced naturally by the body, which is why they are classified as “essential”. EAAs therefore must be obtained through dietary consumption.
The 9 EAAs are: histidine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, isoleucine (BCAA), leucine (BCAA) and valine (BCAA). The last 3 EAAs are of course the ever popular BCAAs.
EAAs Vs BCAAs:
First off, BCAAs are EAAs. Meaning, the three BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine) are 3 of the 9 EAAs. Secondly, BCAAs are essential for human health and actually serve as a good source of fuel for workouts, BUT BCAAs alone do not preserve or build muscle. In other words, the other six EAAs must be present for BCAAs to work. Our bodies require all 9 essential amino acids readily available to protect and build muscle.
EAAs are a true nutritional powerhouse that can help optimize training and muscle recovery. This is why it’s best to choose supplements such as BodyActiv® EAAs or pHasted ® Kardio + EAAs since both formulas contain all 9 EAAs.
Each serving of BodyActiv® EAAs contain over Nine Grams of all 9 essential amino acids, which includes 7 grams of BCAAs in a research proven 2:1:1 ratio. Additionally, B-vitamins, electrolytes and bicarbonates have been added to further enhance athletic performance, hydration and muscle recovery. Multiple studies have documented the ability of bicarbonates to increase physical performance during high-intensity training or physical activity by decreasing fatigue, while increasing muscle coordination.
Whether you weight train; do cardio, Crossfit, field work, HiiT, functional training, SPIN, Jiu Jitsu, MMA, Kick Boxing, Aerobics; distance or endurance training; or any other type of strenuous physical activity: BodyActiv® EAAs are perfect for helping prevent muscle catabolism (ie, muscle break down) while speeding post activity recovery and hydration.
BodyActiv® EAAs can be taken before, during, or after physical activity, or any other time of day as your active body demands.
BodyActiv® EAAs is for anyone who puts physical demands on their bodies; who trains fasted or is following a intermittent fasting, pre-contest, low carb or some other calorie restricted diet. Taking BodyActiv® EAAs will help preserve and protect muscle while you work to achieve your goals such as losing fat, building muscle or increasing physical performance.
BodyActiv® EAAs taste great and mix easy.
