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.

New Flavor

In addition to our current offerings of Strawberry Lemonade, we’ve added a delicious Fruit Punch.

ESSENTIAL AMINOS

Putting on muscle is a balancing act, pivoting on your ability to adapt to training stress and recover from everything else that life throws at you. A poor diet, pushing your training too hard for too long and factors beyond your control (like a nasty flu virus) can all slam the brakes on your “gains train.” If you want to push towards your recovery limits, you’re going to need an “ace in the hole.”

  • Granite Supplements’ Essential Aminos provide a 10g / dose of all the Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) because it’s the dietarily essential [not the non-essential1] amino acids that trigger muscle protein synthesis2-4. Leucine (3.5g) sits atop this EAA blend because of its primacy in triggering protein anabolism5-7. We were sure to focus on the other branched-chain aminos (BCAAs; Isoleucine and Valine at 1.75g each) as well because the BCAAs are known to reduce muscle breakdown and post-exercise soreness and damage8,9.
  • The amounts of the other EAAs blended in Essential Aminos are based on the anabolic EAA mixture used extensively in research2,10-13, adjusted slightly to take advantage of the anabolic signaling6 and insulin-releasing14 effects of lysine and phenylalanine.
  • This power-packed EAA supplement can thus be employed in conjunction with a small amount of carbohydrate (~35g; which could come from our Intra-Carb product) to enhance post-workout protein synthesis11,15 and gains in muscle mass16. If you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place with little to no good protein sources, EAA’s can boost the protein-synthetic effect of an otherwise suboptimal protein source, e.g., one that is too small7 or otherwise dilute in protein content or lacking in EAAs, such as some plant protein sources17. You might also use EAA to “bridge” the gap between two widely-spaced meals when you simply can’t slip away to consume a complete protein source or have a meal.

    This is Pro Level IntraI am currently dieting pretty hard. I’ve been training as a power lifter for the last couple years and was 355 at 29% body fat. I decided it was time for a change. I’ve implemented a heavy caloric restriction and focus on protein while switching most of my workouts to bodybuilding style with steady state cardio. Even with the heavy deficit, this intra allows be to go through killer 1.5 hour workouts followed by up to an hour of cardio 6 days a weak without feeling dead tired OR sore for more than a day. I tried this same approach earlier this year without using the Recovery intra and I would feel miserable in the first 20 minutes. This stuff is probably the most expensive supplement I take, but I will continue to bite this bullet, it’s worth it! (I have been using for about a month, this morning I was 325 at 25.5% body fat!)

    Tastes great, mixes well.Tried out your products because I appreciated that you put your sons sick yo-yo tricks as an intermission in your home training videos. Not a lot of dads who I think are nearly as cool as mine. As for the protein? It's the best tasting period. A huge plus is that it's also the least stinky when left in a closed shaker in the sink (you know what I'm talking about) that I have ever found.

    GXThe best preworkout I’ve ever taken! I love the feel I get without feeling jittery or anxious. Like all Granite Supplements it is top of the line!

    GREAT PRODUCTThis is some of the best CHOs someone can drink during a workout. I have tried a lot of CHOs from waxy maize to a popular brand (Vitar...o). I will say when I used the popular brand I would have a crash almost like I was hypoglycemic, and with the waxy maize I didn’t feel like my muscles were full. But, John’s mixture with this product it’s amazing. Your muscles will fill fuller throughout your workout. No crashing, no bloating, or gas (ewww) I Highly recommend!! Also, if you’re going to take cluster dextrin take some aminos with it so you get a two prong effect for better recovery! (I’m not a fan of the bag it’s packaged in)

    Best tastingPurchased Vanilla. Probably the best tasting protein I have ever had. Been around a while and have tried different proteins since I was a teenager.. Just my opinion, but it might be the best.

    My New Favority Shaker BottleThe title says it all... it does not leak, it's comfortable to use, and it looks great. Thee only negative is that I only bought one... time to buy a few more.

    Great Taste and Energy with No CrashI started using this product a couple days ago in conjunction with Recovery, switching over from a competitor product. Intra-Carb provides the energy boost it's supposed to with no crash and tastes great. I especially like the packaging... it's not only friendlier to the environment but also takes up less storage space in my pantry. Five Stars!!!

    A Must If You Train HardI just started using Recovery and waited until the day after a leg workout to review its effectiveness. My legs are generally sore the day after but I didn't notice any soreness this morning, even though I pushed myself extra hard yesterday including a Mountaindog 56 rep leg extension cluster set. Awesome!!!
