They are the building blocks of protein and assist with building and repairing muscle and other important physiological functions. They are organic compounds composed of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, along with a variable side chain group.
There are 20 amino acids that your body needs to function properly.
ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS AND NON-ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS
Amino acids can be categorized in to two separate groups, Essential and Non-Essential. EAAs are essential for the simple reason that these building blocks cannot be produced by the body and can only be obtained via ingestion/consumption. However, Non-Essential can be reproduced via the body; and is therefore seen as less “important” to supplement.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) form part of the EAAs group – which comprises of 9 amino acids (ALL9™ AMINO
ENHANCES MUSCLE GROWTH
Leucine has been scientifically proven to promote protein synthesis (muscle development), furthermore it has also been noted via scientific literature that leucine is more effective when combined with the complete group of EAAs.
DECREASE MUSCLE SORENESS (DOMS)
BCAAs have been known to prevent protein breakdown during training, which reduces excessive muscle damage. This will lead to less micro trauma to the muscles, resulting in a smaller magnitude of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness).
REDUCE EXERCISE FATIGUE
Consumption of EAAs will increase free form amino acids present in the blood. The presence of these EAAs in the blood will reduce the effects of serotonin – a hormone which induces the sensation of mental fatigue.
PREVENT MUSCLE WASTING
EAAs assist the body in preventing muscle wastage by maintaining the body’s anabolic state. Enhanced protein synthesis with reduced catabolism, which will prevent muscle break down.
GENERAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
Lysine assists in important bodily functions such as bone health, regulating hormones/antibodies/enzymes and antiviral effects. Histidine improves tissue repair and red blood cell production. EAAs assist in enhancing skin and nail health.
EAAs are a great supplement not only for muscle building, recovery and endurance, BUT for optimal health and wellbeing too! It’s a vital supplement which can be consumed all day, every day! Be sure to give our USN ALL9™ AMINO a try; and experience the advanced effects of EAAs.
