Essential Amino Acids
Essential amino acids (EAAs) are amino acids which aren’t made by the body, and need to be obtained from diet.
High-protein foods are high in EAAs, but are more slowly absorbed and are often accompanied by a large amount of extra calories.
In supplement form, EAAs are usually free-form, meaning that they are very rapidly absorbed by the body. They are also provided in a fixed ratio and free of extra calories, which is perfect for dieting.
You can use them as a protein-replacement, or take them around workout time to reduce muscle breakdown, and increase muscle growth (1).
Who Takes It?
Athletes wanting a low-calorie protein replacement, or a muscle-preserving intra-workout drink, will enjoy using Latitude.
How to Take
Mix 1 scoop (7.5g) with 250mL water, and consume around workout time or as desired.
There are no major side effects associated with EAAs.
- Low calorie protein alternative
- Instantised for quick absorption
- Huge range of flavours available.
- May not provide many benefits over standard proteins like whey.
Latitude is a great amino acid supplement which doesn’t contain any extra fillers or gimmicks.
It contains a solid 7.5g of EAAs per scoop, in a quickly-absorbed form. This is an easy way to reduce calories without reducing protein intake.
You can also use it around or during workout time, to reduce muscle breakdown, as well as improve recovery and growth.
It’s available in a whole bunch of delicious flavours, so you’ll never get sick of taking it!
