Essential vs non-essential
Amino acids fulfil various functions various functions in the body. They are mainly relevant as basic building blocks for proteins, including enzymes and hormones. One distinguishes between non-essential, semi-essential and essential amino acids. The latter, the EAAs, are of particular importance because they cannot be produced by the body and therefore have to be taken up through food.
Since athletes have an increased protein and thus amino acid requirement, an additional supplement is often helpful. Vegans or vegetarians can also benefit from additional EAAs, as there are only a few plant based foods that have a complete amino acid profile.
100% Natural & Free From Additives
Our EAA tablets contain 1000 mg of essential amino acids each (leucine, isoleucine, valine, lysine, methionine, threonine, phenylalanine, tryptophan) including the semi-essential amino acid histidine, which cannot be produced in sufficient amounts in the body in certain situations. Unbalanced nutrition and stress, for example, can make it necessary to supplement.
The amino acids in our EAA tablets are obtained by natural fermentation and are not produced synthetically. In addition, we do not use any additives, such as magnesium stearate or microcrystalline cellulose. In contrast to EAA powders, no artificial flavours or sweeteners are added to our tablets.
Some manufacturers offer amino acid pellets made from wheat or soya protein, which could cause problems to people with allergies. The amino acids in our tablets are in free form and can therefore be directly used by the body.
