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.


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.

    slightly better than the blender bottleNot as cool looking as the blender bottle but definitely well made and it has a rounded bottom so it's easy to clean. Not had a problem with it leaking. Sort of not surprising

    Slightly misses the mark for meI got the watermelon flavor. The taste is a bit off, tastes more like watermelon seeds than the actual fruit. I got a bit of reflux once from drinking it a bit too quickly.

    As far as effects, excellent. Keep my energy and pump during training, and I am not nearly as sore the next day. Next time I will go with a different flavor.

    Crazy pumpsFor my Pre workout I mix 2 scoops of Vaso Blast and drink 20 mins before training. I love the rainbow candy flavor, it mixes very well and taste great! There is a noticeable difference when I train with Vaso Blast and when I don’t! I highly I recommend this product!

    Vaso blast pumpThe vaso blast pump is unreal. Like no ther pump product that I’ve tried in the past. The best pet about this product is the “no stym” side of this product. So no jitters,, heart racing, stomach nausea, effects what so ever. Just an aweosme pump!!!!!!

    All pump no stimsThis is a great product. Effective doses of effective ingredients. I lift in the evening so I like the non-stimulant and still get pre benefit of fantastic pump.

    Vaso Blast Stim Free Pre WorkoutAs an IFBB pro, I undulate stimulants to keep the integrity of my adrenal and overall health. This means taking time during the off season to recover from stimulants. I absolutely LOVE Vaso Blast! Stim - Free is rare to find in the first place and when granite offered it, I was pumped because I knew the standard of quality granite puts out there and the bar the company sets. With Vaso Blast I am able to achieve a great pump and feel fantastic from a performance standpoint. It's also a great option to suggest for my clients in regards to online coaching for those who may need a stem free option. Vaso Blast is a game changer!

    The taste alone...I was never a pump product user until I tried Vaso Blast. Within 2-3 sets you really do feel a better pump. And the taste of the cherry lime... I would drink over and over again. Great product and great flavor

    Insane Pumps!Coming from someone who trains late-Vaso blast provides the perfect blend for me to get great pumps and blood flow during my session-without the caffeine. Awesome heart health product as well. Cherry lime is my favorite!

    Great for powerliftingI don’t get much out of most joint support supplements, but this one has genuinely made an enormous difference and virtually eliminated the minor aches and pains I get in my knees and elbows from heavy lifting. It WON’T help with muscle sprains or strains, but if it hurts to lock out a squat or bench, give this a try.

    Granite Joint CareAfter many surgeries due to my passion as a longtime competitor in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, coaching wrestling and lifting I've needed a product that helps with my joints. Joint Care has done just that and I recommend the product to anyone with moderate joint pain so you don't have to push through workouts with nagging aches and pain.
