EAAlpha™

 

Formulate a More Effective Amino Acid Recovery Solution

EAAlpha™ is a patented, clinically studied blend of nine essential amino acids (EAAs) plus arginine, meticulously balanced to provide an optimal ratio for building muscle. 
 
Available on its own as a hero ingredient or used with supporting flavors from Prinova, EAAlpha™ is clinically tested to be more effective than branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), generic EAAs, and whey protein. And that makes it the perfect muscle-growth solution for formulators looking to offer end users an amino acid formulation.

The Next Generation of Amino Acid Formulation

BCAAs
BCAAs
contain only three essential amino acids and were shown to be highly ineffective compared to EAAlpha™ in clinical research.
EAAs
EAAs
are more advanced formulas that include all nine essential amino acids but aren’t formulated to ratios based on clinical research.
EAAlpha™
EAAlpha™
is a patented EAA blend, optimized by over 20 years of clinical research and tested to be effective in muscle protein synthesis.

Six Key Ways EAAlpha™ Stands Out Among Protein Supplements

3x More Efficient Than Whey
3x More Efficient Than Whey
Clinical trials showed EAAlpha™ to be three times more efficient than whey protein for stimulating muscle growth.
32x More Efficient Than BCAAs
32x More Efficient Than BCAAs
Comparative analysis indicates that EAAlpha™ completely outperforms BCAAs with 32X more efficiency in stimulating muscle growth.
Heat Stability
Heat Stability
Compatible with carbonated, hot-fill, and aseptic beverages, EAAlpha™ packs the muscle-building capabilities of protein — without the functionality hassle.
Vegan + Non-GMO
Vegan + Non-GMO
EAAlpha™ is made with vegan amino acids, allowing it to be a welcome part of a wide range of diets and lifestyles.
Light Beverage Experience
Light Beverage Experience
Low in viscosity, EAAlpha™ provides a lighter experience than whey, allowing for non-irritating drinks that can be enjoyed right before, during, or after a workout.
26 Clinical Studies
26 Clinical Studies
EAAlpha™ is the product of over 20 years of clinical research. All studies are published after human clinical trials using muscle biopsy analysis.

What a 3.7g Serving Can Provide:

Unmatched Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS)

(N=23 Participants, Analysis by muscle biopsy1)

In clinical trials, EAAlpha™ produced significantly higher MPS than both BCAAs and whey protein.

Better Injury Recovery

(N=16 Participants, Hip or knee injury participants2)

Participants in an injury recovery study recovered 8X faster when they took EAAlpha™.


Data from a five-year, $1.2-million study conducted at the University of Arkansas for medical sciences. Note: Results of EAAlpha™ vs. Standard care improvement rates.

Higher Digestibility

EAAlpha™ achieved a much higher Digestible Indispensable Amino Acid Score (DIAAS)3 than whey protein.

Supported by a Massive Body of Essential Amino Acid Research

EAAlpha™ was created by Dr Robert Wolfe, a leading expert in amino acids, exercise metabolism, and nutrition. Thanks to his extensive research — including over 600 scholarly articles and five books — EAAlpha™ is the most widely studied essential amino acid system on the market.

 

Dr. Robert Wolfe is a leading expert in amino acid research, exercise metabolism, and nutrition. His research led to the development and patent of EAAlpha™ as the most widely studied Essential Amino Acid system on the market. He has published over 600 scholarly articles and five books on the topic, and they have been cited more than 70,000 times, according to Google Scholar. Dr Wolfe is the Jane and Edward Warmack Chair in Geriatrics, and Director, Center for Translational Research in Aging and Longevity, at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, AR.
