If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you need amino acids.
Not any amino acids though, not all amino acids are created equal. The market is filled with Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) and these are simply inadequate for any of the desired results above. Unfortunately, the market is also filled with a false promise of what BCAAs can do for you, these promises are mostly inconsistent with human biology.
Trying to build a protein in the body, repair a protein in the body, recover quickly from workouts, or maintain lean mass with BCAAs is like trying to build a bicycle with a seat and a bunch of tires; it's just not all of the materials needed to get the job done. BCAAs are the same - they are incomplete for the job. For any of these functions were looking at, you need all 8 of the essential amino acids. 3 of those 8 essential amino acids are also BCAAs but you technically need all 8 of them to build that muscle or to repair that tissue. BCAAs are literally only 3/8th of the material you need.
That is not to say BCAAs are ineffective or have no value, they in fact do. The problem is that they lack the ability to do what most people expect them to do which is building and repairing muscles. BCAAs follow catabolic pathways feeding skeletal muscles and preventing muscle tissue from breaking down, they help prevent muscle fatigue during workouts and support recovery. Those are pretty important things for even amateurs, but wouldn't you like those benefits along with the ability to repair and build new lean mass?
The 8 essential amino acids (EAAs) are just that. They are essential and are everything you need for protein building or repair in the body.
PerfectAmino contains all eight essential amino acids the body needs to support and maintain its muscular, skeletal, enzymatic, and hormonal systems. The essential amino acids in PerfectAmino are in the exact proportions needed for maximum utilization by the body and are virtually calorie free!
That’s a stark contrast between (for example) a big calorie protein shake or a pre-workout supplement loaded with stimulants that will make you crash later.
BCAAs are good and necessary, but there’s much more to it as they are also incomplete.
The Dark Side of BCAAs
There is a lot of confusion about amino acids, especially between branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and essential amino acids (EAAs).
This is a small but critical detail to understand so you can make an informed decision based on biological reality instead of marketing or bad information from trainers or any other unqualified person.
Whether you are training for competitions or simply striving for optimal health simply swapping your BCAAs for EAAs can make a ALL difference in your health and performance.
The Real Difference Between EAA and BCAA
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Every amino acid has the same basic structure with a special “customized” side chain. The side chain gives each amino acid unique properties.
Our bodies use 22 different amino to build all the protein in your body: everything from enzymes to fingernails to muscle.
Of these 22, there are 8 that we cannot make on our own. We must get them from our diet. These are called Essential Amino Acids.
Of these 8 essential amino acids, 3 of them have a side chain called a “branched chain.” These are BCAAs.
What’s so Great About a Branched Chain?
These 3 amino acids became famous because they are processed directly in muscle tissue.
But while this makes BCAAs useful fuel during a workout which prevents muscle breakdown, they fall short of the full benefits of using amino acids. They rely exclusively on the catabolic pathway, the “fuel pathway.” As a fuel, users can “notice”, “feel” and effect from BCAAs and equate that with effectiveness, but they are quite ineffective for building or repairing anything in the body.
Without the rest of the essential amino acids, it is impossible to build muscle tissue with BCAAs.
Your cells don't’ have the right ingredients.
To go anabolic (Building as opposed to fueling), you need all 8 EAAs
How to go Anabolic During Your Workout To Build & Repair
Many amino acid products on the market utilize solely BCAAs, but what the BCAA marketing machine doesn’t tell you is that all essential amino acids, not just BCAAs can be processed directly in muscle tissue.
With all 8 essential amino acids, you activate the anabolic pathway. You can build and repair muscle during the workout instead of merely preventing breakdown with BCAAs.
Even in the middle of a race, in the middle of cycling, in the middle of a run or swim or in the middle of a competition.
EAAs induce “active recovery” – which means even greater results from your workout, less damage to your tissue, and overall better health.
The Trinity of Optimal Performance: EAAs, Fasting and Hormones
The benefits of EAAs don't’ stop there. You can take it one step further.
Many studies have shown massive benefits by working out in a fasted state (On an empty stomach). This stimulates the natural production of powerful hormones which lead to even greater results in your training.
Instead of hitting a wall or shutting down from tissue damage and lack of fuel, you can dig deeper, go farther push harder, and recover faster.
Because EAAs are processed directly in tissue, they do not raise blood levels. PerfectAmino has only 4 calories per serving, so you remain in a fasted state. This gives you the best of both worlds: active recovery with anabolic EAAs PLUS increased hormone production for maximum sustained benefits.
