Ensuring that you are maximising your protein synthesis, supporting lean muscle, improving glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity, decreasing post-training soreness and preventing muscle breakdown.

Essential amino acids, more commonly known in short as EAA include the 9 amino acids Methionine, Lysine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan as well as the 3 BCAA Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine. They are all considered ‘essential’ as the body can’t produce them on its own and are responsible for a variety of functions.
