Amino acids play a key role in the body, as they’re the building blocks for proteins; amino acids are what your body is left with after digesting protein from food or a protein powder.
Amino acids are often referred to as essential amino acids or EAAs, and you’ll often find them in a workout or recovery supplement. EAAs can play an important role in an exercise routine, supporting muscle protein synthesis after a workout, alongside promoting the absorption of other nutrients.
There are 20 different types of amino acids in total, but the 9 essential amino acids are histidine, isoleucine, methionine, leucine, tryptophan, lysine, phenylalanine, valine, and threonine.
Add an EAA supplement to your workout routine, either before, during, or after your workout, to support muscle growth, preservation, and recovery. Our Complete Strength EAA Plus Electrolytes formula is an essential amino acid and electrolyte supplement, featuring the 9 different amino acids. The EAA supplement comes in 240g tubs, each containing 30 servings. Choose from a range of tasty fruity flavours, including Grape, Juicy Mango, Pina Colada, Strawberry, and Watermelon.
Make our EAA supplement part of your daily routine to keep your muscles hydrated and fuelled on your journey to your goals. We recommend mixing 1 serving of our EAA Plus Electrolytes formula with 1 or 2 servings of Complete Strength Pre V2 to make the ideal pre-workout drink.
