    Not a replacement for protein. But I like the EAA approach. Seems like they did their research

    Different for sure. Amino IV seems to be dosed higher and has the added recovery blend. You could prob due Amino IV around your workouts and AminoD between meals

    Isn't this 2 aminos short for an EAA formula?

    Also, 30 servings but just 5.8g of aminos is a very underdosed option IMO

    I noticed this, as well. Nice product but it seems on the light side in terms of dosage.

    Missing amino acid tryptophan i think

    Tryptophan is needed for the body to produce serotonin. Serotonin is used to make melatonin, a hormone that helps to control your sleep and wake cycles.

    so i believe they left that out on purpose

    The research we used actually left out both L-Tryptophan and L-Tyrosine in their formulas. We believe they did so due to possible absorption of the BCAAs. As there is competition for the same receptor. They still showed the results we were looking for. The ratios are also done with research done showing a specific ratio specifically toward L-leucine. We did not just throw some bulk aminos in a bottle.

    We removed methionine as well due to some growing research with life extensionists with the amino acid. There was some recent intriguing research (though in rats) that showed removing methionine from the diet increased fat loss and helped with liver health.

    We also didn't use any dyes or coloring which is pretty cool as well and doesn't pad the servings with mass.

    Oh and yes "replacement" for protein is referring to the research showing that EAAs will increase MPS more than whole protein. I would never say it replaces whole food overall though.

    Also as with all Purus products we have transparent labeling showing exactly how much you are getting.

    No problem glad I could provide some insight. It's a solid formula and has a very nice taste. I noticed recovery dip after I ran out. Was interesting. EAAs have solid research in favor of them especially around workouts.

    I appreciate the thought that went into the formula. I've been reading about EAA benefits - very fascinating.

    We've been putting the word out but we haven't done any big giveaways or logs yet since filling orders and getting production ramped up was first priority. Be on the look out soon though....

    Isn't it a bit misleading to call Amino IV an EAA product when it's missing tryptophan? It even underlines how important it is to have "all" EAA's present in it's own ad copy for the product.

    i imagine this is just a cost-cutting move, as tryptophan doesn't make one sleepy when taken during the day.
