Essential Amino Acids 101: The Many Benefits of EAAs


Essential Amino Acids Fuel Muscle Protein Synthesis and research has shown that supplementing with Essential Amino Acids can increase your body’s Anabolic Muscle Building response to every training session!

Let's take a closer look at what EAAs are, how they work and how to supplement with them to maximize your results.

What are Amino Acids and What do They do?

Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein or the individual units from which protein is assembled.

There are 20 total amino acids with 9 considered essential and 11 considered non-essential.

In addition to forming proteins, including muscle protein, amino acids are also an energy source for several bodily functions, including muscle function.

Wat are EAAs and why are They Important?

There are nine amino acids that are considered Essential Amino Acids. Of the nine EAAs, the BCAAs - Leucine, Valine, and Isoleucine - are the most well known.

The Essential Amino Acids are considered essential because we must provide them to our bosdies through nutrition or supplementation.

Three EAAS - Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine - are primiarily metabolized and utilized in skeletal muscle.

 Essential Amino Acids are extremely improtant for physique and performance athletes because certain EAAs are required for the synthesis of other amino acids and proteins.


For instance, the EAA Leucine activates mTOR, a key pathway in the body that stimulates muscle protein synthesis (MPS).


Certain Essential Amino Acids have also been shown to promote muscle recovery and growth by actually decreasing muscle protein breakdown.


Decreased muscle protein breakdown could lead to less muslce damanage and less exercise induced muscle soreness commonly known as DOMS or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.


Additionally, these amazing amino acids may also support increased performance during exercise. Studies have shown reduced fatigue and muscle soreness markers, like reduced lactate and amonia levels, in athletes supplementing with EAAs.

Essential Amino Acids Fuel Muscle Protein Synthesis and research has shown that supplementing with EAAs before you workout can improve your Anabolic Exercise Response. In other words EAAs can help build, maintain and repair muscle and are beneficial to your muscle growth and workout recovery!

When Should I Take EAAs?

Supplementing with Essential Amino Acids before, during or after you train or compete can produce an increase in Muscle Protein Synthesis that may create a positive protein balance and result in a muscle building (anabolic) state that allows you to Perform Better, Recover Faster and Build Muscle More Easily. 

Using EAAs to Build Muscle & Burn Fat

Safe and Effective Fat Loss comes from combining nutrition, training and supplementation plans and should always be discussed with your medical professional.


However, EAAs can help you build muscle and burn fat by contributing to Increased Lean Mass. Not only does lean mass look and feel great, but lean mass also increases metabolic rate and resting energy expenditure to further facilitate fat loss.


Adding an EAA to your supplement regimen is one of the most effective strategies you can make to immediately promote new gains in muscle mass that also support fat loss.

Unique Ways EAAs Promote Fat Loss

Some Essential Amino Acids are Sugar-Free with Zero Calories and No Carbs. Choosing an EAA supplement with smiliar features can help you lay the foundation for continual and extreme fat loss.


Choosing to supplement with a Sugar-Free EAA around your training sessions can help keep your insulin levels low. Maintaining low insulin levels has been shown to allow your body to more effiiciently target and burn stored fat for its energy needs.


Additionally, supplementing with EAAs can increase Muscle Protein Synthesis that may contribute to increased metabolism and lean mass to further boost performance and fat loss.

How Should I take EAAs?

We recommend drinking a High-Quality EAA Supplement beginning slightly before and continuing while you train or compete.


Utilizing this method ensures that you have EAAs in your system prior to and during your event, not just following the start of it.


Supplementing with EAAs on non-training days is also important to continually support your body while it recovers from previous training sessions or athletic events.

Choosing the Right EAA Supplement

We recommend choosing an Essential Amino Acid Supplement that is Sugar-Free and Zero Calorie with added Electrolytes.


However, in addition to product features, you'll want to consider flavor and quality. While you may think that an "EAA is an EAA", supplementing with an EAA that tastes great and that you can trust is also very important.


Enjoying your EAA's flavor will encourage you to use it more regulary and therefore have better, more consistent results.


Remember, a delicious tasting EAA supplement is just as important to your results as a well formulated EAA Supplement - you need both to maximize results.


In addition to being referred to as the "Best Tasting" EAA, Modern's EAA+ contains 8 grams of EAAs per serving (more than most competitors). Including 6 grams of ultra-critical BCAAs with 3 grams of Leucine - which, remember, is essential for mTOR and Muslce Protein Synthesis.


Modern's EAA+ has 33% more Leucine than the 2 gram threshold that is hyothesized to increase muscle protein synthesis rates above resting rates, so you know you're always covered with EAA+.


EAA+ also has No Sugar, Zero Calories and No Carbs.
