Episode #540 with Chase Baldwin on EAA & Protein Utilization

Today we dive into a third episode on Essential Amino Acids as from the team at Body Health and Perfect Aminos.

What are essential amino acids? 

How do we get stronger as we age?

What are the strategies to building muscle?

How should we use EAA for recovery and repair from workouts?

For overall health and energy, increased lean muscle mass, collagen production, and stronger bones, take a baseline of 1 – 3 servings daily:

For maximum utilization of PerfectAmino it’s best to take it 30 minutes before other fats or proteins, or 1-2 hours after. However, if this is not possible you will still get fantastic results and near 99% utilization – so don’t worry! Start with the following amounts for your body weight:

  • Up to 110 lbs: Take 1 – 2 servings first thing in the morning or before bed.
  • 110 – 140 lbs: Take 2 servings first thing in the morning or before bed.
  • 140 – 170 lbs: Take at least 2 servings first thing in the morning and 1 before bed.
  • 170 – 200+ lbs: Take at least 2 servings first thing in the morning and 1-2 before bed.

If you take those amounts you should be noticing positive changes within a couple of weeks.NOTE: When taking two servings in a day it is most effective when taken at the same time, not split up.

 

If you workout daily:  To improve performance, you may want to add 1-2 servings to the above. Take PerfectAmino before your workout as well as before bed, to enhance recovery. You will get the most for recovery taking PerfectAmino before bed. However, it can also be taken 20-30 minutes before a workout for maximum endurance and prevention of muscle loss, especially during fasted workouts. One would not then need to take more after the workout as the aminos will still be in your blood stream helping recovery. They will normally be in the blood stream for about 2-3 hours.

There are some larger people who do intensive, 1-2 hour workouts and use PerfectAmino as their main protein source. They take 2 servings in the morning, 2 servings before their workout, and then 2 before bed. They do very well with this as their primary source of protein.
