Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are essential for health, recovery, and performance. There are approximately 20 amino acids that have been identified, but only nine are deemed essential because the body cannot synthesize them on its own. So it’s important to consume a sufficient amount of essential amino acids (EAAs) on a daily basis through food and/or supplementation.
Of the nine essential amino acids, three are also classified as branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which include leucine, valine, and isoleucine. Branched-chain amino acids are arguably even more important for active individuals who are looking to maximize their performance and recovery because they’re required to fully activate muscle protein synthesis (MPS).
However, that doesn’t mean you should settle for a basic BCAA supplement, because all nine EAAs will likely provide even greater benefits. A true hard-working M’fer deserves more, which is exactly why we created The Grind.
The Grind is our premium EAA, BCAA, + Hydration formula that’s designed to be used before, during, and/or after training to enhance recovery, hydration, and performance. Instead of just creating a basic BCAA powder like many of our competitors, we decided to formulate the ultimate intra-workout supplement. Take one look at the label and you can tell that The Grind is one of the most comprehensive amino acid products on the market.
In each serving of The Grind you’ll find:
- 2.5 grams of EAAs
- 5 grams of BCAAs
In total, you’re getting 7.5 grams of amino acids in every scoop, which will help boost recovery by decreasing muscle protein breakdown and increasing muscle protein synthesis.
In addition to the EAAs and BCAAs, The Grind contains several ingredients that further promote recovery, hydration, and performance, such as:
- Raw coconut water concentrate
- Betaine anhydrous
- L-Ornithine AKG
- Electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium)
The Grind is one of our best-selling supplements for a number of reasons. It’s versatile, tasty, and excellent for boosting recovery, performance, and hydration. Since The Grind doesn’t contain any stimulants, you can take it any time of the day, even on rest days. Not to mention, The Grind uses fermented amino acids, so it's vegan-friendly!
So if you’re actually serious about maximizing your performance and recovery, don’t settle for an inferior amino acid supplement. Instead, grab a tub of The Grind and keep chasing those gains.
