EAA consists of nine amino acids that act as the building blocks of the protein and are part of many of the body's most important functions. Our EAA is completely free of animal products with only vegetable ingredients. Great to drink before training!
EAA improves performance & accelerates recovery
Essential Amino Acids is abbreviated to EAA and is called in Swedish Essential amino acids. EAA consists of nine amino acids in free form which are leucine, lysine, phenylalanine, threonine, valine, histidine, isoleucine, tryptophan and methionine. EAA acts as the building blocks of the protein and is part of many of the body's most important functions. Our EAA is completely free of animal products with only vegetable ingredients. EAA is excellent to drink before training!
Onetohundred offers EAA with two fantastic flavors. EAA with an unbeatable taste of green apple and EAA with unbeatable taste of raspberries. EAA stimulates muscle building and accelerates recovery. EAA improves muscle breakdown and also improves performance. Our EAA is 100% vegan and completely sugar free!
EAA is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to increase their daily intake of amino acids. The goal can be to keep a diet or just be sure that you get enough amino acids to increase your protein synthesis. Gym, paddle, functional and high-intensity group training, cycling, running are just a few examples of activities where EAA comes into its own. EAA is suitable for all athletes who want to optimize nutrient intake and stimulate protein synthesis.
EAA - Nutritional Content
The nutritional content of our EAA per 100 grams is 256 kcal and a full 64 grams of protein. Zero grams of fat and zero grams of carbohydrates.
Essential amino acids, EAA, are vital amino acids that the human body cannot produce itself and must therefore be ingested with food. We get EAA by eating protein-rich products such as legumes, meat, nuts, fish, shellfish, eggs and dairy products.
The building blocks of muscle are often referred to as amino acids, specifically EAA and BCAAs. There are two main groups which are essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids. Essential amino acids cannot be produced in the body, but must be ingested through diet or supplements. Non-essential amino acids work the other way around, these amino acids can be produced by the body on its own when needed.
The difference between BCAAs and EAAs
So what exactly is the difference between BCAAs and EAAs? Both are amino acids and work in much the same way. There are hundreds of amino acids but only 20 that are used as building blocks for the proteins in our body. So-called non-essential amino acids can be produced by the body on its own. However, the body can not produce the remaining nine essential amino acids on its own.
These nine essential amino acids are those used in the EAA supplement. Three specific amino acids that make up EAA are L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine. Three amino acids that you probably also recognize as branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). This means that we get EAA when we drink BCAAs, we just do not get all nine amino acids that make up full EAA.
In order to stimulate protein synthesis, we must absorb all the amino acids that are part of EAA. If you only drink BCAAs, you will get three amino acids that are part of EAA but lack the six required for full EAA. The amino acid that accounts for the most protein synthesis-enhancing effect is L-leucine and it is found in both EAA and BCAAs.
