BCAA’s are largely used and known supplement on the market that has wide acclaim but not much is said about EEAs, how they are used, how they differ and what their benefits are in relation to BCAAs. We’ll have a look at the Mutant EEAs, give you some insight on this product and EEAs in general and how they work.
About the product:
So, the Mutant GEAAR product is composed of EEAs, or essential amino acids. What makes essential amino acids ESSENTIAL is the fact that they are a string of amino acids that can’t be naturally produced by the body. In other words, you have to get them in either via various food sources or by supplementing them.
In comparison to BCAAs, EEAs contain most of the amino acid chain. So, where BCAAs generally only have Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, EEAs have other amino acids from that chain. These include Threonine, Lysine, Arginine, Phenylalanine, Histidine, Methionine, Tryptophan.
What makes GEAAR a pretty cool EEA product is that they have included an electrolyte blend as well which is key for optimising hydration support. So, you can expect that extra bit of liveliness from this product as well.
Mutant GEAAR has 4 flavours to choose from and I decided to go with the blue raspberry. The flavour is good and tastes quite sweet. The mixability was a bit a let-down as it became quite foamy and took a while to blend in nicely with the water.
In terms of its usage, like any BCAA product, this product would go best with people who are vegans, vegetarians or who are in severe deficits. Therefore, taking it in places of your day where you would essentially be between meals would help keep your protein synthesis levels elevated.
Remember, that both EEAs and BCAAs ACTUALLY do have calories in them so you would need to factor that into your diet.
A single serving of Mutant GEEAR is 12,6g of EEAs. This a rather generous serving of the ingredients that make up this product so you can be assured that you are not being skimped out of anything. Like I said above, taking an EEA or BCAA would work best in “eating gaps” of your day so space your servings out well.
Mutant GEAAR gets a 3.5 out 5 for me. It’s a pretty straight forward product that provides you with exactly what it sets our to provide.
