Essential amino acids (EAAs). You need them because your body can’t make them on its own—you can only get them from diet and supplementation. You want them because you know how important EAAs are post-workout—only EAAs are needed to spark protein synthesis and achieve anabolic effects. Research has shown that non-essential amino acids aren’t needed; non-essential aminos can get wasted. Now what you want are the right forms of essential aminos in the right ratios and amounts. With EAA Nitro, you don’t have to figure all this out. We did. With EAA Nitro, you get the same “uncoupled” essential amino acid profile as found in human muscle itself. You also get the addition of 35g of dextrose. And it all comes in a grape-flavored drink mix.
Think of the added dextrose as a kind of supercharger. This important carb takes those key essential aminos your muscles need and ignites ‘em. In one recent study, researchers looked at the anabolic impact of 6g of essential aminos mixed with 35g of simple carbs on weightlifters. They found that the EAA/carb drink promoted muscle anabolism and increased protein synthesis by ~400% above pre-drink values when that drink was taken within a short period of time after lifting. So the next time you reach for your favorite post-workout shake, take a serving of EAA Nitro instead. You’ll get all the key aminos your body needs (and none you don’t), plus just the right amount of carbs. Because with Universal, superior results are what we’re delivering.

When lifting, there is a critical 4-hour anabolic window of opportunity that exists. To take advantage of this window, take 1 heaping scoop within 30 minutes after resistance training. For even better results, you can take 2 total servings; the first immediately before lifting, and the second within 30 minutes after. If you use a post-workout shake, wait at least another 30-45 minutes after you've taken an EAA Nitro serving before drinking that shake. Always take EAA Nitro on an empty stomach.
