MAN Sports ISO EAA Aminos 101: We all have heard about BCAAs or Branch Chain Amino Acids, but what about Essential Amino Acids? Are they better? Are they different? Fun Fact, BCAAs are part of the many Essential Amino Acids your body needs. MAN Sports created ISO EAA as the optimal supplement to take during your workouts to keep you hydrated, replenish muscles for energy, burn fat, and increase protein synthesis post workout for protein consumption.
The Formula: EAAs or Essential Amino Acids are aminos that can’t be produced by your body and must be obtained through diet or supplementation. These aminos (that also include BCAAs) play a vital role in exercise performance especially preventing muscle breakdown.
BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) are made up of 3 amino acids: Leucine, Iso-Leucine and Valine. BCAAs are widely used to prevent muscle fatigue, improve athletic performance, reduce soreness and stimulate recovery after intense training.
BONUS: Hydration is a key component of nearly all body functions – especially in terms of athletic performance and training. Our hydration blend features a number of electrolytes, which are minerals that carry an electrical charge. It’s important to ensure you have ample electrolytes for proper hydration, especially during rigorous training as during your workout you actually deplete electrolyte stores.
