Essential amino acids


Essential amino acids are acids that the body cannot synthesize itself and must therefore be supplied. The quality of protein in food is measured by comparing the ratio of essential amino acids to the ratio corresponding to proper nutrition. High-quality proteins are found in milk, eggs and meat. However, they are often a source of high cholesterol, and there is a risk of protein deficiency in the vegan lifestyle.

Essential amino acids include:

  • Histidine
  • Isoleucine
  • Leucine
  • Lysine
  • Methionine
  • Phenylalanine
  • Threonine
  • Tryptophan
  • Valine 

We offer the essential amino acids as the Instant EAA product.
