Supports muscle growth
Unlike other amino acids, essential amino acids are the only ones that promote and maintain muscle development.
Improves mood and sleep
Our cells use an amino acid called Tryptophan to create something called serotonin, which helps our body feel calm and relaxed.
Manages weight and appetite
The essential amino acids help control how hungry we feel by sending signals to our brain. This can help us manage our cravings and feel fuller for longer.
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 super important for your body because they help build protein, give you energy, and keep you healthy. They can do lots of cool things like helping you grow strong muscles, recover from exercise faster, think better, and more! It's really important to make sure you get all the EAAs your body needs because if you don't, it could stop you from being as healthy and fit as you want to be. Taking a good EAA supplement can help make sure your body has all the aminos it needs to be its best!
L-methionine is a really helpful amino acid that helps your liver and body make protein. It can make your muscles strong, keep your hair, skin, and nails healthy, and help your liver and kidneys stay strong too! When you take an EAA with L-methionine in it, you might even notice that your body's metabolism works better.
Phenylalanine is an important amino acid that can help your brain work well, keep your mood happy and healthy, and even make you feel calm and good all over.
Increased muscle definition.
L-leucine is the most important of the BCAAs because it helps your muscles get better after a workout and can even help make them stronger! That's why we suggest taking your EAAs before or during your 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 recommend EAAs because they can help your whole body stay healthy, not just during exercise. When you take EAAs, you can exercise for longer and make your muscles stronger. They can also help fix your body tissues, break down food better, and even help you focus better mentally.
How it works:
IHM AMINOS are pure EAAs for energy, strength, and recovery.
Our bodies need essential amino acids to work correctly. But sometimes, we don't get enough of them from our food, so it can be helpful to take an EAA supplement.
When you take EAAs, your whole body can benefit - not just your muscles! They can help your brain, tissues, and even your hormones work better. Studies show that EAAs with a lot of leucine can be especially good for building and fixing muscles. IHM Aminos have lots of leucine and the right amount of other EAAs to help your muscles grow and recover well.
More than a BCAA: Methionine
Methionine has something called sulfur in it, and this can be really helpful for our bodies. It helps ensure that all the essential things happening inside us, like how we digest food, are working well.
More than a BCAA: Tryptophan
Tryptophan comes from plants, and when we eat it, our bodies turn it into something called bioactive metabolites. These are just things that our body makes when it's processing food. Our brains need these metabolites to make something called serotonin, which is important for how we feel.
More than a BCAA: Lysine
Lysine is good for our bodies because it helps our tissues stay healthy and grow properly. If we get injured or have surgery, lysine can help us heal faster. It also helps keep essential things in our bodies, like hormones and enzymes, working the way they should.
