EAA Max provides a full essential amino acid profile including a full 5g dose of 2:1:1 BCAAs to support muscle growth, repair, and recovery!*
Primeval Labs fans have been clamoring for a comprehensive amino acid supplement for years now, but truth be told, developing the perfect profile (with exceptional flavor) is no small feat.*
Sure, it’d be easy to just pump out some under-dosed BCAA-only supplement, but that doesn’t provide everything skeletal muscle tissue with what it needs to effectively synthesize more protein.
The wait is finally over now as Primeval Labs has launched EAA Max -- the best tasting amino acid supplement on the market.*
EAA Max provides a complete essential amino acid profile PLUS a full serving of 2:1:1 BCAAs for maximal muscle growth, repair, and recovery!*
When Can I Take EAA Max?
EAA Max is your all day, every day amino acid supplement. Use it on training days for intra workout fuel, or on non-training days as a way keep a steady supply of essential amino acids pumping into your muscles. Mix a scoop or two into a half gallon water bottle and sip throughout the day.*
That’s the great thing about EAA Max it can literally be used ANYTIME, ANYWHERE to support muscle growth and recovery. *
Why Choose EAA Max?
Typical amino acid supplements only contain the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) consisting of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine.
While there’s nothing wrong with BCAA supplements, they simply do not provide the full spectrum of amino acids the body requires for protein synthesis. Think of it like playing a game of football with only 6 of the 11 players -- it just won’t work!*
Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s), on the other hand, contain the entire range of amino acids the body demands when it needs to build new tissue. EAAs are called "essential" because the body cannot synthesize them on its own. It MUST obtain them through food or supplements.*
Furthermore, most individuals aren’t eating a diverse enough diet, and therefore may be deficient in some EAAs. Plus, some may be eating a well-balanced diet, but may not be absorbing the nutrients properly.*
Either way, the end result is EAA deficiency and lack of protein synthesis!*
EAAs not only stimulate protein synthesis, but they support energy production and cellular repair.*
Additionally, EAAs are needed for complete and healthy digestion and nutrient absorption. EAAs also support each cell’s mitochondria -- the “power plant” of the cell that generates ATP!*
EAA Max Ingredients
Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)
Leucine is the best known, and well researched, of all the amino acids. It’s also the BCAA to which most of the benefits of BCAA supplementation is attributed. The reason being, is that Leucine as a powerful stimulator of the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR).*
Note: mTOR used to standfor mammalian target of rapamycin until recently
mTOR is a cellular signal “highway” that serves as the primary regulator in the body of cell growth, proliferation, survival, and metabolism. Specifically, mTOR1 is the one responsible formuscle protein synthesis (i.e. building muscle). Additionally, leucine is also helpful for preventing muscle protein breakdown (a.k.a. catabolism) -- keeping you anabolic even during periods of fasting!*
It’s easy to see why Leucine is widely regarded as the “king” of all amino acids when you put these benefits together.*
- Stimulates mTOR pathway*
- Aids muscle protein synthesis*
- Helps combat muscle protein breakdown*
Think of Isoleucine as the weaker “younger brother” of Leucine. It’s a more mild stimulator of muscle protein synthesis -- weaker than Leucine, but stronger than Valine. However, where Isoleucine does stand out is in its ability to increase glucose uptake as well as glucose use during high intensity exercise.*
- Stimulates muscle protein synthesis*
- Supports glucose uptake and utilization during exercise*
Last of the BCAAs is Valine. Though not studied to the extent of Leucine and Isoleucine in isolation, Valine has been shown to be essential for energy conversion in the body as well as enhance glycogen synthesis in skeletal muscle, preventing catabolism.*
While it may seem inconsequential compared to the previous two BCAAs, Valine is the third critical “leg” of the BCAA trifecta that contributes to increased muscle protein synthesis, repair, and growth.*
- Supports glycogen synthesis in muscle tissue*
- Supports protein synthesis*
Essential Amino Acids
L-Lysine HCl (300mg)
First up for the Essential Amino Acid portion of EAA Max is L-Lysine. Among Lysine’s major functions, most pertinent to its inclusion here is its role in constructing muscle protein, aiding injury recovery
