EAA’s are all the rage these days and for good reason. Out with the old BCAA formula and in with an EAA-BCAA blend! Which is exactly what our newly formulated BEYOND product is! Psst we also have just launched a NEW refreshing flavour MANDARIN TWIST. Purchase it here to try for yourself today!

What are EAA’s? 

EAA’s stands for Essential Amino Acids. Essential Amino Acids are proteins that are essential for health but cannot be produced by the body. This means that we need to consume them in the form of foods or supplements. 

Why EAA’s?

Gone are the days where Branched Chain Amino Acid products were touted as the best option for muscle recovery. These days we’re a little smarter! We love looking at EAA’s with the analogy of building a house. The BCAA’s are singular bricks. You can’t build a house with just a few bricks. To build a solid foundation you need to place all the bricks together. That is how EAA’s & BCAA’s work together, meaning it’s better to use a full spectrum of Essential Amino Acids instead of just a few! 

Our EAA blend includes all 9 essential amino acids including:

  • Methionine for assisting energy production and fat metabolism.
  • Lysine for stimulation of growth hormones and muscle building.
  • Tryptophan for mood enhancement and pain tolerance.
  • Threonine for a healthy heart and strong bones and muscles.
  • Phenylalanine for improved rate of perceived exertion, pain tolerance and mood enhancement.
  • Histidine for assistance in offsetting lactic acid build up.
  • Leucine for protein synthesis and energy production.
  • Isoleucine for endurance, energy and muscle recovery.
  • Valine for muscular growth, energy, and recovery.

Benefits of EAA’s

  • Performance & Endurance:  EAA’s can help us to improve pain tolerance assisting us squeeze in that last rep! They also help to offset lactic acid build up meaning you can perform for longer without your legs burning or feeling like jelly! 
  • Muscle Recovery & Soreness:  EAA’s assist with recovery by refuelling your muscles with the amino acids needed to replenish stores lost during a workout. This can also help to reduce or even eliminate muscle soreness after a workout.
  • Assist Muscle Growth & Prevent Muscle Breakdown:  Consuming an EAA product can help to reduce muscle catabolism while helping to build lean muscle mass. 


All of these amazing benefits and more can be found in  EHPlabs BEYOND BCAA + EAA intra workout product! All ingredients work in harmony together to help you go above & BEYOND during your workout!
