Essential Amino Acids: New Formulation, New Flavor, New Packaging
Granite Supplements is very pleased to introduce our newly revamped Essential Amino Acids. Once again, we listened to your suggestions and did a slight course correction. Let’s break it down:
Essential Amino Acids
There are 20 different amino acids but only nine amino acids are classified as essential: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. They trigger muscle protein synthesis but since they don’t occur naturally in your body, they must be consumed. We’ve added three more grams for a total of 10 grams.
Branched Chain Amino Acids
Of the nine Essential Amino Acids, three are “branched-chain” which refers to their chemical structure. These are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These play very specific roles in muscle-building including maximizing anabolic state, reducing muscle breakdown, and lessening post-exercise soreness. We’ve added one more gram for a total of 7 grams.
We have you to thank for the price reduction. Bigger orders mean better pricing on raw ingredients. Yes, we could have taken that profit margin for ourselves, but we believe in doing what is right for our customers, so we have passed our savings on to you.
You can read our blog post on New Packaging but in a nutshell, the zip-pouches are easier to use, portable, and eco-friendly.
In addition to our current offerings of Green Apple and Strawberry Lemonade, we’ve added a delicious Fruit Punch.
We’re ready to hear your input on our new formulation and flavor! Let us know how you like the new EAAs.
