Description

In this episode Ashleigh asks the CEO and co-founder of Kion, Angelo Keely, to do a deep dive on essential amino acids. As a life-long meat eater, Ashleigh is skeptical about EAA supplements, so they talk about:

  • What essential amino acids are and why they're important
  • The differences between BCAA's and EAA's
  • How much you're actually getting from your food
  • How to make sure you're getting enough to optimize your health
  • How to best incorporate EAA's to optimize intake, muscle growth, and overall health
  • Can you overdo it and ingest too many EAA's?
  • Are supplemental EAA's necessary, and if you want to use them, how best to incorporate into a well-rounded diet

All that and more - if you enjoyed this specific deep dive with a subject matter expert let us know and we can do more like this. Email musclescience4women@gmail.com with your questions, feedback, and topic ideas.
