ATP Science Vegan Essential Amino Acids offers the nine EAAs in addition to Glutamine, Taurine, Hydroxyproline and AstraGin in a natural flavour and sweetener base. This essential amino acid supplement is vegan-friendly and may be taken pre, intra or post-workout, between meals or any other time when a high quality protein would typically be used.
- 100% Plant-Based EAAs.
- With Hydroxyproline.
- mTOR-Boosting Leucine.
- Refreshing Flavours.
ATP Science Vegan Aminos are purely plant-based essential amino acids (EAAs) with the added benefit of conditionally essential aminos and hydroxyproline. EAAs have been gaining popularity over the past decade, which is not surprising given that they are important constituents of the protein powders that are held in esteem by so many. There are benefits to obtaining your EAAs in free-form, one of which is zero dependence on the digestive process which can be quite inefficient. This is due to the fact that EAAs don't need to be digested, just absorbed.
Essential Amino Acid Supplements offer some of the most foundational nutrients for the human body. These components of protein provide us with building blocks to form bone, ligaments, tendons, organs, skin, muscle and so much more. Essential Amino Acids play other important roles too, such as the synthesis of brain chemicals like serotonin and dopamine, hormones and even cholesterol.
Once of the most popularised uses for the EAAs is their ability to stimulate protein synthesis, given that they are in the correct ratios to meet the body's requirements1. This benefit has been heavily researched by Dr Robert Wolfe for decades, who consulted with NASA on how astronauts heading for Mars can maintain muscle mass. His research has demonstrated time and time again the efficiency with which EAAs can trigger an anabolic response in the human body. This means muscle tissue, and other tissues requiring EAAs, can adapt favourably to their conditions.
Essential Amino Acids can be seen like an adaptogenic herb, such as rhodiola, ashwagandha or schisandra, in that they help our body response to a wide range of stressors, whether they be physical, environmental or psychological. You can be sure that you are supported with each scoop of with each scoop ATP Science Vegan Essential Aminos. This formula has the added benefit of a large proprtion of leucine, which the the mTOR trigger, or the trigger for muscle protein synthesis, which is needed more and more as we age2. In fact, a high dietary or supplemental proportion of leucine is one of the necessary methiods via which anabolic resistance can be slowed.
However, ATP Science haven't stopped there. This Vegan Essential Amino Acid Supplement also contains the hydroxyproline, which is an important component of collagen, and glutamine, which assists with gut health and glycogen replenishment3. Finally, AstraGinTM has been added to improve bioavailability of the amino acids. This means even more potent results.
Whether you're looking to build or maintain muscle mass, boost strength and power, support sports and exercise recovery, or simply supplement a diet that is lacking in quality protein, ATP Science Vegan Aminos is a fantastic plant-based option.
