Our EAA offers a remarkable 16g of essential amino acids per 25g serving to promote muscle growth. Plus Piperine and Magnesium (electrolyte)!
Firstly, what is an Essential Amino Acid?
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which helps to promote the growth and maintenance of muscle. Essential amino acids are the amino acids that your body needs but cannot produce on its own. You can only get them through your diet by eating things like meat, eggs or taking a convenient supplement like this one!
There are nine essential amino acids in total – three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and six other essential amino acids.
The 9 EAAs are:
- Leucine (BCAA)
- Isoleucine (BCAA)
- Valine (BCAA)
A combination of these 9 amino acids provide a role in preventing muscle fatigue, improving lean body mass, assisting with muscle growth and reducing muscle soreness. With 16g of EAAs per serving Reflex EAA is a premium source of essential amino acids!

What's the difference between EAAs and BCAAs?
EAA = Essential Amino Acid
- EAAs cannot be produced by the body so need to be obtained through your diet
- EAA supplements contain the three Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) along with the 6 other essential amino acids.
- Research has shown EAAs to; prevent muscle fatigue during a resistance training session (1), improve lean body mass (2), and assist with muscle growth (3).
BCAA = Branched-Chain Amino Acid
- Made up of 3 amino acids; Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.
- 3 of the 9 EAAs, they also cannot be produced by the body and need to be obtained through diet.
- BCAAs have been shown to reduce muscle soreness after resistance training exercise (4).
