The long wait is over now as we’ve launched EAA Max -- the best tasting amino acid supplement on the market. EAA Max provides a full essential amino acid profile including a full 5g dose of 2:1:1 BCAAs to support muscle growth, repair, and recovery!* Primeval Labs fans have been clamoring for a comprehensive amino acid supplement for years now, but truth be told, developing the perfect profile (with exceptional flavor) is no small feat.* Sure, it’d be easy to just pump out some under-dosed BCAA-only supplement, but that doesn’t provide everything skeletal muscle tissue with what it needs to effectively synthesize more protein.  The wait is finally over now as Primeval Labs has launched EAA Max -- the best tasting amino acid supplement on the market.* EAA Max provides a complete essential amino acid profile PLUS a full serving of 2:1:1 BCAAs for maximal muscle growth, repair, and recovery!* When Can I Take EAA Max? EAA Max is your all day, every day amino acid supplement. Use it on training days for intra workout fuel, or on non-training days as a way keep a steady supply of essential amino acids pumping into your muscles. Mix a scoop or two into a half gallon water bottle and sip throughout the day.* That’s the great thing about EAA Max it can literally be used ANYTIME, ANYWHERE to support muscle growth and recovery. * Why Choose EAA Max? Typical amino acid supplements only contain the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) consisting of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. While there’s nothing wrong with BCAA supplements, they simply do not provide the full spectrum of amino acids the body requires for protein synthesis. Think of it like playing a game of football with only 6 of the 11 players -- it just won’t work!* Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s), on the other hand, contain the entire range of amino acids the body demands when it needs to build new tissue. EAAs are called "essential" because the body cannot synthesize them on its own. It MUST obtain them through food or supplements.* Furthermore, most individuals aren’t eating a diverse enough diet, and therefore may be deficient in some EAAs. Plus, some may be eating a well-balanced diet, but may not be absorbing the nutrients properly.* Either way, the end result is EAA deficiency and lack of protein synthesis!* EAAs not only stimulate protein synthesis, but they support energy production and cellular repair.* Additionally, EAAs are needed for complete and healthy digestion and nutrient absorption. EAAs also support each cell’s mitochondria -- the “power plant” of the cell that generates ATP!* EAA Max Ingredients Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) L-Leucine (2,500mg) Leucine is the best known, and well researched, of all the amino acids. It’s also the BCAA to which most of the benefits of BCAA supplementation is attributed. The reason being, is that Leucine as a powerful stimulator of the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR).*[2] Note: mTOR used to stand for mammalian target of rapamycin until recently mTOR is a cellular signal “highway” that serves as the primary regulator in the body of cell growth, proliferation, survival, and metabolism.[3] Specifically, mTOR1 is the one responsible for muscle protein synthesis (i.e. building muscle). Additionally, leucine is also helpful for preventing muscle protein breakdown (a.k.a. catabolism) -- keeping you anabolic even during periods of fasting!* It’s easy to see why Leucine is widely regarded as the “king” of all amino acids when you put these benefits together.* Stimulates mTOR pathway* Aids muscle protein synthesis* Helps combat muscle protein breakdown* L-Isoleucine (1,250mg) Think of Isoleucine as the weaker “younger brother” of Leucine. It’s a more mild stimulator of muscle protein synthesis -- weaker than Leucine, but stronger than Valine. However, where Isoleucine does stand out is in its ability to increase glucose uptake as well as glucose use during high intensity exercise.*[4] Stimulates muscle protein synthesis* Supports glucose uptake and utilization during exercise* L-Valine (1,250mg) Last of the BCAAs is Valine. Though not studied to the extent of Leucine and Isoleucine in isolation, Valine has been shown to be essential for energy conversion in the body as well as enhance glycogen synthesis in skeletal muscle, preventing catabolism.*[4] While it may seem inconsequential compared to the previous two BCAAs, Valine is the third critical “leg” of the BCAA trifecta that contributes to increased muscle protein synthesis, repair, and growth.* Supports glycogen synthesis in muscle tissue* Supports protein synthesis* Essential Amino Acids L-Lysine HCl (300mg) First up for the Essential Amino Acid portion of EAA Max is L-Lysine. Among Lysine’s major functions, most pertinent to its inclusion here is its role in constructing muscle protein, aiding injury recovery, and supporting calcium absorption.[5]* Additionally, Lysine is also necessary for carnitine production. Carnitine is a substance in the body that supports energy production via fat conversion. It also plays a vital role in synthesis of collagen, skin, cartilage, and tendons.* Supports immune function* Required for carnitine production* Aids fat burning via its role in the synthesis of carnitine* L-Threonine (225mg) Threonine was the final amino acid to be discovered by William C. Rose.[6] It’s an alpha amino acid necessary for the synthesis of proteins in the body. Specifically, threonine is needed for the synthesis of serine and glycine to drive muscle protein synthesis. Additionally, threonine also teams with methionine and aspartic acid to assist the liver with the digestion of fats, also known as lipotropic function.* Supports fat digestion* Required for production of serine and glycine (amino acids involved in protein synthesis)* L-Phenylalanine (200mg) Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid vital to optimal Central Nervous System functioning. It easily crosses the blood-brain barrier where it’s used to create three highly important neurotransmitters that essentially govern the way you interact and view your surroundings.* Furthermore, increased levels of these three neurotransmitters translate to increased energy, mood, and focus -- all critical attributes to maintaining performance when training.* Used in the production of neurotransmitters which enhance motivation and focus* Supports synthesis of catecholamines* L-Tryptophan (50mg) As the sole precursor of serotonin, L-tryptophan is vital to optimal serotonin production on the brain, which is an important factor in cognition, behavior, and overall mood.[7] The problem is that Tryptophan is the amino acid with the lowest concentrations in the body[8], so supplementing with extra ensure you have the adequate raw materials needed for sufficient serotonin production, and don’t have to worry about any bouts of depression!* Interestingly enough, researchers have observed that only the “L” form of amino acids (other forms such as DL-Tryptophan, DL-Phenylalanine, etc. exist) can be used by the body for protein synthesis and cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB). This is why Primeval Labs includes ONLY the L-based amino acid forms in EAA Max -- quality matters!* Serotonin precursor* Supports a healthy mood due to its role in serotonin production* L-Histidine Histidine is a precursor to histamine and an essential component for cognitive functioning and wakefulness.[9] The reason for this is that histidine is needed for the development and maintenance of the myelin sheaths that cover nerve cells and support signal transmission from the brain to all the various component of the body.* Additionally, histidine also forms the crucial second half of the beta alanine + histidine “equation” for carnosine production.[10]* Precursor to histamine, an important neurotransmitter* Supports neurotransmission due to its role in the development of myelin sheath* Works with beta alanine to produce carnosine* L-Methionine Last but not least of the EAA portion of EAA Max is Methionine. Among the numerous critical functions that Methionine is involved in, first among those is its role as a lipotropic, substance that assists the liver with fat digestion. Furthermore, methionine also acts as a precursor for L-Cysteine, a powerful antioxidant in the body which helps defend against free radicals and oxidative stress brought on by intense exercise.[11]* Assists the liver with fat digestion* Precursor to cysteine -- an important antioxidant* Muscle Energy & Nutrient Delivery Cluster Dextrin®(2,000mg) Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (HBCD) is the ideal carbohydrate you want going into an intense workout. It’s unique molecular structure facilitates rapid digestion with no GI upset or “carb coma” like other functional carbohydrates.* Cluster Dextrin gets immediately transported into muscles where it can provide a reliable source of energy and enhance nutrient delivery, thereby supporting muscle growth and repair. This is the exact carbohydrate you want packaged with your essential amino acids for maximal nutrient transport and absorption!* Fast-digesting, low-glycemic carbohydrate* Supports energy production and exercise performance* Aids glycogen resynthesis* D-Ribose (500mg) D-Ribose is a supplemental variation of ribose, a sugar produced from the digestion of glucose, that combines with adenine to form ATP, the primary energy driver of cellular metabolism. During intense training, ATP is rapidly depleted, which leads to decreased stamina and performance. D-ribose effectively regenerates ATP reserves in the cell following exercise[12,13], which keeps performance at peak levels throughout even the most grueling training sessions. due to the demands placed on the muscle.* Supplemental form of ribose that supports ATP production* Supports exercise performance* May aid intra-set recovery* Suggested Use Mix one scoop (11.8g) of EAA Max in 10-12oz of cold water and consume during exercise on training days or throughout the day on both training and non training days.

EAA SLEEP
EAA SLEEP
$34.99
Primeval Labs EAA Sleep is the evolution of sleep aid supplements. Deep, restful sleep is crucial to optimal mental and physical performance. Unfortunately, most people simply don’t get enough quality sleep every night, leading to lethargy, brain fog, irritability, and countless other side effects. Even worse, especially for athletes, skimping on sleep can reduce recovery, decrease muscle growth, and encourage fat gain!* Simply put, you need quality sleep every night. Whether it be 4, 8, or even 10 hours, the sleep you get each night should be deep and restorative, so that when you wake up the next morning you feel refreshed and ready to tackle whatever challenges the new day will throw you.* EAA Sleep is an all-natural sleep and recovery supplement to recharge your body and mind and support your muscle building efforts. EAA Sleep provides a full complement of all natural sleep aids to encourage relaxation and sedation, promoting deep, restorative sleep without any groggy feelings the next morning. On top of that, you’ll also get the full spectrum of essential amino acids (EAAs) to support muscle growth and repair while you sleep, thereby avoiding muscle breakdown (catabolism).* Plus, EAA Sleep also tastes great! You’ll actually look forward to drinking it each night before slipping under the covers.* EAA Sleep Ingredients GABA (1g) GABA, short for Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter that regulates depressive and sedative actions in the brain. It’s essential for relaxation and has been associated with stable mood and restful sleep. That’s not all though, as GABA also supports production of key hormones in the body that control muscle growth and fat burning, including human growth hormone.*[1] Supplemental GABA increases alpha band brain waves[25] while decreasing beta brain waves. Alpha waves are the “deep relaxation” waves in the brain, while beta waves are responsible for alertness and reasoning.* GABA is calming neurotransmitter associated with restful sleep* Studies show that supplementing with GABA increases alpha brain waves* L-Theanine (200mg) Found prevalently in tea leaves, L-Theanine is an amino acid that promotes relaxation, reduces stress, and improves sleep.[4,5,6] Theanine’s ability to induce a state of calmness is one of the primary reasons it’s a staple ingredient in sleep aids and why so many people recommend drinking a cup of warm herbal tea before bed.* If you’re one of those individuals who has trouble turning your mind off at night, theanine may help calm your mind and alleviate your stress, enabling you to drift off to a long, peaceful sleep.* Amino acid found in green tea that crosses the blood-brain barrier* Increases levels of GABA in the brain* Studies show supplementing with L-Theanine promotes relaxation and helps reduce stress*   5-HTP (100mg) Derived from the essential amino acid tryptophan, 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a precursor to serotonin, the neurotransmitter associated with happiness and contentment. This compound promotes relaxation and sleep, and also has been shown to reduce appetite.*[7] When combined with GABA, the two were documented to decrease the time required to fall asleep as well as improve sleep quality and time asleep.[8] Additionally, since 5-HTP supports serotonin production, it may also improve mood and sense of well-being.* Direct precursor to serotonin* Promotes relaxation* Supports a healthy mood* When combined with GABA, 5-HTP may help reduce sleep latency and improve quality of sleep* Melatonin (2.5mg) Melatonin is a naturally-occurring hormone secreted by the brain that governs sleep. Essentially, this neurohormone controls your circadian rhythms and tells your body when it’s time to get in “sleep mode.”* Unfortunately, light suppresses melatonin production, and in this day and age of constant TV, laptop, and smartphone use, the circadian rhythm gets out of whack due to disrupted melatonin production and the end result is disrupted sleep.* Supplementing with melatonin can promote a healthy circadian rhythm, thereby helping you get to sleep faster each night.[9,10,11] It’s also been useful in combating insomnia and improving sleep quality in individuals as well.[12,13] Best of all, melatonin doesn’t come with any rebound effects or withdrawal symptoms, unlike other common sleep support supplements.* Melatonin is a hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle* Supplementing with melatonin may improve sleep latency* 2:1:1 BCAAs (5g) The branch-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a special “subcategory” of the essential amino acids. Comprised of the amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine, the three BCAAs have been heavily investigated for their role in promoting muscle protein synthesis (via mTOR activation), reducing muscle breakdown (catabolism), and improving exercise performance.[14,15,16] Additionally, the BCAAs support immune system function, glycogen replenishment, and energy production.*[17,18] Stimulate muscle protein synthesis* Help reduce muscle breakdown* Support glycogen replenishment and energy production*   Essential Amino Acids L-Lysine HCl (300mg) Lysine is one of the EAA’s essential for protein construction, injury recovery, and carnitine production. Carnitine is a substance that facilitates the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria of your cells to be burned for energy, i.e. fat burning. But that’s not all, lysine is also required for the production of skin, cartilage, collagen, and tendons, as well as calcium absorption.*[19] Supports immune function* Assists fat burning via its role in supporting carnitine production* L-Threonine (225mg) Discovered by William C. Rose, threonine was the final amino acid discovered by science.[20] It’s required for the synthesis of glycine and serine, two amino acids which drive muscle protein synthesis in the body. Threonine also works with aspartic acid and methionine to support digestion of fats in the liver, otherwise known as lipotropic function.* Supports muscle protein synthesis* Aids fat digestion in the liver* L-Phenylalanine (200mg) Phenylalanine is an EAA critical to proper Central Nervous System (CNS) function. It can easily cross the blood-brain barrier where it’s then used in the production of three big-time neurotransmitters that regulate how you interact and view your environment.* Supports production of neurotransmitters Promotes focus and motivation* L-Tryptophan (50mg) L-tryptophan is the lone precursor to serotonin and essential to maintaining optimal levels of the neurotransmitter in the body, and subsequently mood, behavior, and cognition.[21] In fact, L-Tryptophan has even been used as a form of alternative medicine to treat insomnia, anxiety, depression, and even attention-deficit disorder (ADD).* Unfortunately, Tryptophan is the amino acid with the lowest concentration in the body[22], which is why so many are at risk for disrupted sleep and altered behavior.* Tryptophan is the least abundant amino acid in the body* Precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in mood as well as sleep.* L-Histidine (25mg) A precursor to histamine, histidine is an EAA that’s essential for cognitive function and wakefulness.[23] Histidine is required for the maintenance and development of the myelin sheaths around nerve cells that support signal transmission from the brain to all the other areas of the body. Plus, this EAA also protects against the damaging effects of radiation and assists in the elimination of heavy metals from the body.* Supports production of the intracellular buffer carnosine* Histamine precursor that aids cognitive function and myelin sheath development* L-Methionine (20mg) Methionine is involved in numerous functions of the body, with one of the most important being, fat digestion. Additionally, methionine serves as a precursor for L-Cysteine, a powerful antioxidant, which protects against oxidative stress brought on by free radicals caused by intense exercise.*[24] Supports L-cysteine synthesis (cysteine is an important antioxidant in the body)* Assists with fat digestion* Suggested Use: Take 1 Scoop with 12-14 oz of cold water 20-30 min before bedtime.

EAA Max Energy is perfect on training days as a pre workout or intra workout or on non-training days to support muscle growth and recovery. It can also be used as a replacement for your typical afternoon coffee or energy drink when you need a little “pick me up” to get through the day.* Mix a scoop into a half gallon water bottle, drink throughout the day, and kick those energy drinks and coffee cups to the curb.* Why Choose EAA Max Energy? Each serving of EAA Max Energy provides ALL of the essential amino acids required for muscle protein synthesis (including a full 5g of 2:1:1 BCAAs!) and a generous amount of caffeine to provide smooth, long-lasting energy that will have you on top of your game all day long.* Additionally, if you don’t consume a diverse diet, you may be missing out on some key EAAs needed for proper protein construction. EAA Max Energy may help “fill in the gaps” if diets missing one of those essential amino acids.* Not only does EAA Max Energy promote protein synthesis, it also supports increased energy production, muscle repair, and mitochondrial function.*[1] And, if you’re tired of chugging coffee, sickly sweet energy drinks, or underdosed BCAAs, EAA Max Energy may be just the thing you need!* EAA Max Energy Ingredients Stimulant Blend (286mg) There’s no other way to kick off EAA Max Energy’s ingredients than with the energy component of the product. Primeval Labs has crafted a powerful energy-boosting blend utilizing a trifecta of caffeine in the form of Infinergy Dicaffeine Malate, Caffeine Anhydrous, and Caffeine Citrate.*This scientifically-formulated blend of caffeine provides both immediate and sustained energy. There’s no jitters, anxiety, or crash here, only smooth, long-lasting energy.* Branch Chain Amino Acids L-Leucine Leucine is the “king” of all amino acids. It’s the most heavily researched BCAA and the one to which the vast majority of BCAA supplementation benefits are attributed. Leucine is the primary activator of mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway.*[2]Activating mTOR stimulates muscle protein synthesis and also enhances cellular growth, multiplication, metabolism, and survival.[3] On top of that, leucine is also essential for staving off catabolism (i.e. muscle protein breakdown), which ensures the gains you make are kept for good!* Stimulates mTOR -- the pathway that drives muscle protein synthesis* helps combat muscle breakdown* L-Isoleucine Typically thought of as Leucine’s weaker, younger brother, Isoleucine is also a stimulator of muscle protein synthesis, but not nearly as potent as Leucine is. However, one area that Isoleucine does shine is its ability to enhance the uptake of glucose by skeletal muscle as well as utilization of glucose during intense exercise.[4] In other words, Isoleucine improves the body's ability to store and use glucose while training allowing for more productive workouts and better gains!* stimulates muscle protein synthesis* Aids glucose uptake and utilization by skeletal muscle* L-Valine The third and final BCAA is Valine. It’s also the least individually researched of the three BCAAs.*Valine is vital for glycogen synthesis in muscle tissue as well as energy conversion[4] and forms the crucial third component of the branched-chain amino acid family.* Promotes glycogen resynthesis* Essential Amino Acids L-Lysine HCl (300mg) L-Lysine plays a number of important roles in regards to muscle building and athletic performance. It’s required for the production of carnitine - a substance that helps the body use fat for energy, and necessary for the creation of skin, cartilage, collagen, and tendons.* Furthermore, Lysine is also necessary for building proteins, enhancing calcium absorption, and accelerating recovery from injuries.*[5] Involved in carnitine production* Supports the body's use of fat for energy* Aids calcium absorption* L-Threonine (225mg) The very last amino acid discovered was Threonine.[6] It’s categorized as an alpha amino acid required for glycine and serine production, both of which are essential for fueling muscle protein synthesis. Threonine also works with aspartic acid and methionine (also found in EAA Max Energy) to support lipotropic function (fat digestion) in the liver.* Needed for the production of glycine and serine* Involved in fat digestion* L-Phenylalanine (200mg) Phenylalanine is a true rarity among amino acids, as it is one of the few compounds around that can cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB). This makes phenylalanine a critical component of healthy Central Nervous System function.[6] L-Tryptophan (50mg) L-tryptophan is the precursor to serotonin in the body, which means aside from it is essential for protein synthesis, it’s also essential for optimal serotonin production -- an important neurotransmitter for mood, behavior, and cognition.[*7] However, Tryptophan is the least abundant EAA in the body.[8] Deficiencies in this essential amino acids may lead to poor mood as well as reduced protein synthesis!* Several forms of Tryptophan can be found in amino acid supplements (DL-Tryptophan for example), but only the “L-” form is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and effectively be used for protein synthesis. Here is yet another example of Primeval Labs bringing only the best to its products!* Required for serotonin production* Due to its role in serotonin production, trytophan may support a healthy mood and better cognition* L-Histidine Histidine is vital to optimal cognitive function as well as wakefulness. It’s also a precursor to histamine.[9] In case you weren’t aware, histidine is required for the development and maintenance of the myelin sheaths that envelop nerve cells. Myelin sheaths also enhance signal transmission from the brain to all the other parts of the body.* This EAA is also essential for carnosine production, which is formed when beta alanine binds to histidine in muscle tissue.[10] Carnosine is an intracellular buffer that helps combat premature fatigue by removing H+ ions in the muscle.* Precursor to histamine* Supports neurotransmission via its involvement in maintenance of myelin sheath* Works with beta alanine to form carnosine* L-Methionine The final essential amino acid in EAA Max Energy is Methionine. Among the various roles Methionine plays in the body, is that of a precursor to L-Cysteine, an incredibly powerful antioxidant that combats oxidative stress induced by strenuous exercise.[11] L-Cysteine prevents free radical from accumulating in the body, and preventing inflammation -- ensuring health and wellness.* On top of that, Methionine is also a valuable lipotropic compound, which means it aids the liver in digesting fats.* Supports production of Cysteine* Aids fat metabolism* Muscle Energy & Nutrient Delivery Cluster Dextrin®(2,000mg) Cluster Dextrin® is the patented form of Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (HBCD), an fast-digesting carbohydrate source ideal for training. Cluster Dextrin’s unique structure gives it a high molecular weight and low osmolality, which means it is rapidly digested, but comes without the GI upset of other quick digesting carb sources.* Cluster Dextrin® is rapidly transported to skeletal muscles to provide energy and support amino acid delivery. The end result is better nutrient uptake for better muscle growth, repair, and recovery.* low-glycemic, fast-digesting carbohydrate* Supports athletic performance* Aids glycogen replenishment* D-Ribose (500mg) Ribose is a sugar produced from the breakdown of glucose in the body that combines with Adenine to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main energy “currency” of the cell. D-Ribose is a supplemental form of Ribose used by athletes in improve athletic performance.* As you’re aware, during exercise, ATP stores become depleted, which negatively impacts performance. Supplementing with D-ribose has been shown to enhance ATP regeneration, supporting quicker inter-set recovery and increased training capacity.*[12,13] Exogenous form of ribose that supports athletic performance* Shown in research to aid ATP regeneration* May support faster intra-set recovery* Suggested Use Mix one scoop of EAA Max Energy in 10-12oz of cold water and consume during exercise on training days. On non-training days, EAA Max Energy can be consumed throughout the day.
