What is the difference between EAAs and protein?

Georgina Roberts Updated by Georgina Roberts

When we eat protein, our body breaks it down into amino acids. Essential amino acids (EAAs) are the building blocks of protein. By supplementing, they are absorbed much faster because our body doesn’t have to break them down, so you can get to work faster when you need it most. Protein is still an essential part of a healthy diet, but EAAs can help to optimise your training and performance.
