Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. About twenty percent of the human body is protein, therefore amino acids make up a large proportion of our cells, muscles, and tissue. Amino acids are essential to many biological processes that happen within our bodies, such as healing and forming muscles.

Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) are not produced naturally by the body, which is why they are classified as “essential”. EAAs therefore must be obtained through dietary consumption.

The 9 EAAs are: histidine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, isoleucine (BCAA), leucine (BCAA) and valine (BCAA). The last 3 EAAs are of course the ever popular BCAAs.


First off, BCAAs are EAAs. Meaning, the three BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine) are 3 of the 9 EAAs. Secondly, BCAAs are essential for human health and actually serve as a good source of fuel for workouts, BUT BCAAs alone do not preserve or build muscle. In other words, the other six EAAs must be present for BCAAs to work. Our bodies require all 9 essential amino acids readily available to protect and build muscle. 

EAAs are a true nutritional powerhouse that can help optimize training and muscle recovery. This is why it’s best to choose supplements such as BodyActiv® EAAs or pHasted ® Kardio + EAAs since both formulas contain all 9 EAAs.
