Essential Amino Acids are taking the reigns of popularity from BCAA products as more and more research is published in support of these more comprehensive formulations. After all, Rule 1's Essential Amino 9 delivers all the benefits of a quality BCAA formula, yet with 6 more amino acids.
This means the body's natural anabolic processes can not only be triggered (mTOR), but followed through with the creation of new muscle tissue.
The human body needs 8 of the 9 essential amino acids, as well as a host of non-essential aminos, in order to create new muscle tissue. Fortunately, non-essential aminos are easy to come by, and are always available for the creation of new muscle tissue by a nice biological recycling process.
This means that when the essential amino acids (excluding tryptophan) are provided in relatively ideal ratios, the human body can get to work creating new muscle, rebuilding and repairing.
This makes Essential Amino 9 quite an anabolic product, supporting lean muscle growth and recovery. In addition, taken intra-workout, essential amino acid preparations help to couteract the catabolic effects of hormones like cortisol, which strip our hard-earned muscle mass down.
Though Tryptophan is not used for creating muscle tissue, its inclusion in this formula is nonetheless important. Tryptophan supports mood, sleep, digestion and absorption of nutrients (like protein!), amongst many other roles.
Additionally, some research suggests that high amounts of leucine may interefere with tryptophan passing into the brain via the blood brain barrier. This makes it a crucial ingredient in Rule 1 Essential Amino 9.
Whether you take it post-workout, intra-workout or between meals to keep recovery optimised, Rule 1 have created an innovative essential amino acid formulation that offers hydration and all the benefits of BCAAs and beyond.
