ATP Science Vegan Essential Aminos
- 100% Plant-Based EAAs!
- With Hydroxyproline
- High Proportion of mTOR-Boosting Leucine
ATP Science Vegan Aminos are purely plant-based essential amino acids (EAAs) with the added benefit of some conditionally essential aminos and hydroxyproline. EAAs have been gaining popularity over the past decade, which is far from surprising, given that they are the basic constituents of the protein powders that we have all been loving for so long. There are some miraculous benefits to getting your EAAs in free-form though, one of which is zero dependence on the digestive process, which can be quite inefficient. That's right, EAAs don't need to be digested, just absorbed!
Essential Amino Acids are some of the most foundational nutrients for the human body. These components of protein provide us with building blocks to form bone, ligaments, tendons, skin, muscle and so much more. Essential Amino Acids play other important roles too. For instance, they are needed for 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 function has been researched by Dr Robert Wolfe for, quite literally, decades! This is the guy NASA hit up for the low-down on how to keep musle mass on astronauts heading for Mars! His research has demonstrated time and time again the efficiency at 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. Their Vegan Essential Amino Acids 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.
