Essential Amino Acids - Why Are They Essential?
Essential Amino Acids (EAA) are required by the body to help build new tissue and aid muscle repair. Essential Amino Acids are deemed 'essential' since ultimately they cannot be synthesised or created by the body and therefore the only way we can get them is through the foods we eat and supplements we take. The Protein Works™ Essential Amino Acids contains all 9 of the essential amino acids uses only premium grade ingredients to create the finest quality supplement, backed up with the very latest Certificate of Analysis.

Essential Amino Acids and Training Needs
Adding Essential Amino Acids as a supplement to your diet helps the body to extract the maximum amount of nutrients from protein sources. This is turn helps you to train harder and for longer while the body will also be able to recover more quickly. Whilst experts believe a normal, healthy diet is sufficient to supply most people with all the amino acids they need, athletes and those involved in heavy training are believed to have a far elevated need for Essential Amino Acids to help the growth and repair of cells within the body. In these groups, Essential Amino Acids supplementation has been shown to produce favourable changes in muscle protein synthesis, muscle mass, and ultimately functional outcomes such as muscle strength and endurance.

It tastes disgusting though (and smells even worse!) but I understand that is the norm with EAAs. I'd recommend mixing them in with a strong tasting drink, such as a two scoop chocolate shake, or Raze pre-workout, to effectively mask the taste. Still a great product despite the taste!
Also i got EAA after Mark GIlbert (big name in sports nutrition) recommends them over BCAA which have only 3 of the 8 essesntial amino acids. EAA's have all 8. 5 stars for not making me gag while drinking it!

I will be purchasing this item again and will feature as a staple supplement for my goals. The price is great for the weight and BVV. Plus I don't need to take 7+ pills in tablet form.
