Increase muscle definition.
Supports muscle growth
Unlike other amino acids, essential amino acids are the only ones that promote and maintain muscle development.
Improves mood and sleep
Tryptophan is the amino acid our cells use to create the neurotransmitter serotonin, which puts the body at ease and promotes relaxation.
Manages weight and appetite
Essential amino acids regulate hunger sensations in the brain, which helps manage cravings and increases satiety.
EAA’s are the best!— StaviB
“I have been using EAA’s for about 6 months now and feel like I can give them an honest review. I have loved these! I used BCAA’s before and didn’t always love the flavor and they sometimes caused bloating. I always feel good after I drink the EAA’s and IHM’s flavors are so good!”
Highly Recommend— Sheena
“I absolutely love the EAA's! Not only does it taste amazing, but it doesn't give me a stomach ache. On top of all that goodness, I can tell a difference in the appearance of my body and muscle mass when I drink the EAA's regularly with my workouts. The ONLY supplements I use are the EAA's and the IHM protein. HIGHLY recommend!”
The best EAA’s— Patricia
“I absolutely LOOOOOVE the EAA's. Love them with my workouts and as a part of my morning routine because I intermittent fast daily. Thank you for these!!!!!!!!!!!”
Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) are the building blocks of protein, energy, and total body health. They help you develop and maintain lean muscle mass, improve recovery, increase mental performance, and much more.
As the bedrock of protein in your body, being deficient in any amino acid could hold you back from reaching your health and fitness goals.
Taking a high-quality EAA supplement is a great way to get the aminos you need to reach total body health and peak performance.
L-methionine aids the liver and assists the body in synthesizing proteins. It supports the muscles, promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails, and fortifies the liver and kidneys. Thanks to L-methionine, you can expect an improved metabolism when taking an EAA.
Phenylalanine helps support brain function, aids in maintaining a healthy mood, and may promote a calm sense of overall well-being.
Increased muscle definition.
L-leucine is the most important of the BCAAs as it aids muscle recovery and promotes lean muscle growth, which is why we recommend taking your EAAs as a pre or intra-workout.
How are EAAs different from BCAAs?
BCAA’s contain three essential amino acids, while EAA’s contain all nine essential amino acids.
At IHM, we prefer to supplement with EAAs because of the total health benefits rather than exercise-specific benefits. When taking EAAs, you can expect exercise endurance and muscle growth, tissue repair, food breakdown, and better mental focus.
How it works:
IHM AMINOS are pure EAAs for energy, strength, and recovery.
Because our bodies do not naturally produce all of the essential amino acids they require, and many of us aren’t consuming adequate amounts of protein, everyone can benefit from supplementing with an EAA.
Essential amino acids assist in total body function. We’re talking about all parts: muscle, brain, tissue, and endocrine.
Research shows that EAA supplements rich in the amino acid leucine work even better than traditional EAAs to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, aid muscle repair, and support muscle recovery.
IHM Aminos are high leucine, with the remaining EAAs in optimal ratios that will optimize muscle development and recovery.
More than a BCAA: Methionine
Methionine contains high levels of sulfur and helps regulate metabolic processes and digestive functions in humans and animals.
More than a BCAA: Tryptophan
Tryptophan is derived from plants, and consuming it transforms it into bioactive metabolites, end products of metabolism. The brain needs them to produce serotonin.
More than a BCAA: Lysine
Lysine promotes healthy tissue function, and growth and supports the healing process, such as after an injury or a surgical procedure. It also helps regulate hormones, antibodies, and enzymes.
made with you in mind
How to use iHeart Essential Aminos:
As an intra workout.
We recommend throwing this into a shaker bottle or gym bag and sipping it throughout your workout.
Anytime you know you're protein deficient.
We love to use it as a helpful supplement during traveling, colds/flu, and especially busy times when we don’t have as much time or energy to optimize our nutritional intake.
