This finger stick/blood spot measures the status of the eight essential amino acids your body needs to build and maintain muscle, neurotransmitters, hormones, and metabolic enzymes. Take the sample in the privacy of your home, send it in, and get your results.
Don't leave your competitive edge dulled or chipped due to an EAA imbalance or deficiency. Find out where you are and what you need to do.
How It Works
This Essential Amino Acid (EAA) Assessment kit consists of sample-taking materials and simple instructions.
It's really very easy to use. Just follow the simple instructions and mail the kit in. The lab will conduct the assessment on the sample provided, and then provide you with the results.
Rule out EAA deficiency as a cause of poor workout recovery, slow progress, or muscle loss.
Correctly determine which EAAs to address, so you can adjust your intake of the needed foods or supplements without needlessly piling on the calories.
An EAA deficiency damages your athletic performance, because it forces the physical breakdown of muscle tissue. And that's from a deficiency of only one of the eight EAAs.
Even if you don't register as officially deficient--that is, you have enough of each EAA to avoid forced muscle cannibalization--you still may not have adequate levels of each EAA to permit the needed growth, repair, and recovery from hard training sessions or competition.
Sure, you could take a shotgun approach to EAA deficiencies by overeating or spending a small fortune on broad supplementation. But is a "drive with the windshield blacked out" approach really the way you want to do things?
Precision is your goal, here. You have only so many resources, and you need to spend them wisely. That's what this assessment allows you to do.
What's your most important piece of athletic equipment? Your body. If you want a competitive edge, it starts with knowing your own body.
How hard can you actually train?
How fast can you actually recover?
Are you spending your training dollars the best way?

Many athletes have EAA deficiency and are frustrated by their apparent lack of progress. The EAA-imbalanced athlete loses to the competitor who lacks this liability and consequently has improved since the last time.
While they could improve their athletic performance much more, most EAA-imbalanced athletes don't even know they have the problem. They blame something else. Usually, they, or their coaches, assume it's a protein deficiency, so they load up on protein powders. While adequate protein intake is important and protein powders help ensure that, simply overdoing the protein doesn't solve an EAA problem. It just makes you fat.
Solving the wrong problem still leaves you with the original problem. Find out exactly where you are with EAA levels Don't guess and end up wasting money and valuable performance improvement time. There are only so many days in your life you can train. Make them all count.
