    I think ALL amino acids are important. But I mostly supplement with extra BCAA's around my training. I have taken EAA formulas in the past but not very frequently. BCAA's on the other hand, I mega-dose every day that I train. I really love the formulas that stick to the tested 2:1:1 ratio vs. some of these products that go 8:1:1 or 10:1:1. When I use BCAA's, I take them before, during and after my workouts. I feel like they have only helped my recovery and leave me feel much less sore.

    In for this!

    Team Dymatize wants your opinions on the importance of essential aminos acids versus non-essential amino acids. How important is it to distinguish the two?

    I think getting some extra EAAs especially the BCAAs is more critical than NEAAs. However, I think generally a high protein diet is the best answer - not free form amino acids alone. However, it is fun to drink free form flavored amino acids.

    What dosage do you prefer or recommend?


    I don't have any recommendations for free form amino acids, but I like to get around 5 grams of BCAAs during a workout, especially if working out in a fasted state. I don't frequently ingest other EAAs and NEAAs during workout, but usually have a protein shake of some kind after.

    Do you think timing is important and when do you like to take it?

    I take amino acids (mostly BCAAs) during workouts, especially if fasted. I don't think timing of taking amino acids is especially critical.

    How important is it to distinguish the two?

    I think it's quite important to distinguish the two by their very nature. The biggest difference here is knowing that essential amino acids must be ingested through diet and supplements because our bodies cannot produce them on their own. Because of this, we must be sure that our diet and supplements contain the needed values of these so that our bodies can perform at their best. Of the 20 amino acids, 9 are essential and consist of valine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and histidine. .Because our bodies donít store amino acids, itís important that we get a daily supply of these.

    Non-essential amino acids are just as important as essential ones, however our body can produce these naturally so obtaining them through diet is not as much of a factor. Non-essential amino acids can still be supplemented and consist of arginine, glutamine, tyrosine, cysteine, glycine, proline, serine, ornithine, alanine, asparagine, and aspartate. Knowing the differences between the two is important to be sure that weíre getting or making enough of each.


    What dosage do you prefer or recommend?

    I canít say that I have a real preference here when it comes to total amount and ratios. Most of the BCAA drinks Iíve used in the past were a 2:1:1 ratio which has worked well for me, so I imagine that this seems to be the best and most commonly used dosage. I also like that the Amino Pro has electrolytes include to help with hydration and replenishment


    Do you think timing is important and when do you like to take it?

    Personally, I do think timing is important. For me, I like to use BCAAís during my workout. While people give mixed results to this question, I personally feel that I can tell a difference. I donít seem to fatigue as quickly and Iím able to push through my workouts with better success and speed. I find that this is especially important if I do something before eating or after work when itís been many hours since my last meal. I tend to not feel as tired or light-headed when I have something like this and I do like them during workouts.

    ő believe we get most of our non essential aminos from diet alone dont quote me on that!

    Normally I get 5-10g BCAA during workouts, never tried a EAA product. I believe BCAA are far more imporant for muscle recovery.
    I feel timing is important especially during workouts and post workout for muscle soreness recovery and protein synthesis.
    Id be very happy to test and review these 2 dymatize products!

    Couldn't have said it better! Non-essential aminos are just as important to supplement with as we can't produce anywhere close to enough for an ergogenic & anabolic environment. I prefer to have an intra-workout that includes EAA and BCAAs although just BCAAs are fine as well. Surprisingly a 4:1:1 bcaa has allowed me to hit prs when taken pre-workout but I regularly take 2:1:1. Preferred dosage is 5-10g+ pre-workout & intra-workout w/a protein shake immediately after lifting.

    I feel that additional amino acid supplementation is critical for myself in my fitness journey. I train daily and don't take any days off during the week, so adding in some extra aminos keeps my body fueled and certainly helps with my recovery. I honestly can't remember the last time I was ridiculously sore with DOMS and I feel that is because I use a lot of BCAA's before my workouts, during my workouts, and then immediately after my workouts. Although I try my best at putting together the right kind of diet, I feel that adding in extra aminos only helps my cause. I take a few scoops of aminos around my workouts and don't use them throughout the day like some people do, but that's just my personal preference. But again, I feel like adding in extra aminos is one of the reasons why I'm able to train daily and feel like my body has recovered enough after each session that I put it through. Each serving that I take is at LEAST 5 grams but during my workouts, I've upped my dosage to high levels depending upon what I was training that day. Leg day is always a massive day for me so I really like to load up on this day at the gym.

    1. How important is it to distinguish the two?
    I think it is important to distinguish between the two, because trainees may not realize that their body can/not produce some amino acids on their own. Further, they may have specific dietary requirements.

    What dosage do you prefer or recommend?
    I usually prefer the minimum recommended dosages, because of my dietary needs.

    Do you think timing is important and when do you like to take it?
    I do think timing is important to a degree. I think it is better to be taking the supplement in the first place and then worry about proper timing to improve effectiveness. Anyway, I take mine with breakfast and midworkout.

    Team Dymatize wants your opinions on the importance of essential aminos acids versus non-essential amino acids. How important is it to distinguish the two?

    I think they are all equally important. I do however only supplement with BCAA because in my opinion when it comes down to building muscle the BCAA contain the amino acids most important to building muscle while the others can be used for other functions around the body.

    What dosage do you prefer or recommend?

    I can't really recommend a dosage but I currently take 10g of BCAA during some of my workouts, especially the ones were i'm working out fasted.

    Do you think timing is important and when do you like to take it?

    I don't really know how important timing is but I take mine during my workouts because i feel like it gives me a little boost, even though my currently supplement does not have any stimulant. I do think it becomes even more important when working out fasted.

    essential amino acids are amino acids your body can't produce by itself. since your body cannot produce them, you have to get it from the food you eat. non essential amino acids are amino acids your body can produce by itself. not all amino acids fit in one defined category, in some cases, your body need essential A.A. to produce some of the the nonessential ones.

    since this is the case i would prefer to use EAAs over non-EAAs in conjunction with a well balanced diet to provide for my needs. that being said, i normally use BCAA products consisting primarily of the essential nutrients leucine, isoleucine, and valine along with various other ingredients like electrolytes for hydration and other AA's. 5-7 grams per day is my normal dosage depending on the product and its formulation. i usually use my Aminos as an Intra product....keeping me both hydrated and refreshed as i train.


    im a big fan of both Aminos and Casein and would love to review both for Dymatize. many thanks!

    Team Dymatize wants your opinions on the importance of essential aminos acids versus non-essential amino acids. How important is it to distinguish the two?

    Non essential amino acids are "fun" I guess you could say, such as arganine (for the pump) and glutamine (for recovery) but they're just that, non essential. You could very well get a pump from high carbs and fluid, and could get the recovery from adequate calorie and protein intake.
    I'm a huge fan of leucine. There are a lot of interesting studies to read on how leucine triggers an anabolic response.

    What dosage do you prefer or recommend? Do you think timing is important and when do you like to take it?

    Leucine-I've always had in my mind that 5g is the desired dose to trigger an anabolic response. I prefer to take in a total amino dose of 10g during my workout. It's not completely necessary (especially if I'm not in a caloric deficit) but they taste good, and even if it helps me out 1%, I'll do it.
    I think the timing is important when you're dieting. Fasted cardio or times when you have hours between meals, I think it's great to supplement with aminos. As far as the casein goes, timing is very important-it makes the ideal shake before bed.
    The 2 most important things to me when training are 1. The Muscle Mind Connection. and 2. Intensity

    Excellent. Two product categories that I use daily!

    Team Dymatize wants your opinions on the importance of essential aminos acids versus non-essential amino acids.
    How important is it to distinguish the two?
    VERY. It's in the name "essential" VS "non-essential" seems pretty straight forward to me.

    What dosage do you prefer or recommend?
    Essential I recommend a hefty dose of leucine either intra or post workout (4-6g), and find that most products include a good amount of Isoleucine/Valine along with that.

    Non-essential, they can have some benefits, but not necessarily directly affecting strength (from what I know)... SO if you are looking to improve the health of your hair, skin, teeth, and nails then they may have their place, but I would recommend most people invest in a solid BCAA product and protein powder.

    Do you think timing is important and when do you like to take it?
    Essentials, yes! They are beneficial at any time, but optimal intra/post workout IMO.
    Non-essentials, just be consistent with when you take them each day.

    WOULD LOVE THIS STACK!

    My opinion is that essential are obviously more important since you need to acquire them from either supplements of your diet to attain them.

    Dosage wise, 2:1:1 seems to be a very good ratio, but at the same time, the mg dosage is also important. 2:1:1 isn't very helpful if the does are 10mg:5mg:5mg hahahha

    Personally my opinion is that intra workout is the best timing. With having a pre workout meal and taking a post workout shake, you're getting all the aminos you need at those times and need to give your body time to digest what you're taking in. Intra workout has always given me the best results.

    Oh no. I'm not blaming or asking for updates haha. You all are the middle man. I understand you've done all you guys can. Trust me when I say it's appreciated

    I was just checking if I was eligible or not to apply to this, because of the ruling "Must not owe Dymatize any outstanding review" which I will once it arrives. That's all bro :P


    EDIT: That packaging on the new amino looks amazing. I beat it taste great too!

    25 winners...wow. Very generous. Dymatize lighting it up once again

    Team Dymatize wants your opinions on the importance of essential aminos acids versus non-essential amino acids. How important is it to distinguish the two?
    It is very important to distinguish essential vs non-essential amino acids. By definition, essential amino acids are essential because the body can not create them. They need to be obtained through diet or supplementation. Non-essential amino acids can be produced by the body via other energy sources (carbs/fats)

    What dosage do you prefer or recommend?
    You need 3-4g go leucine to fully stimulate protein synthesis. Most BCAA/EAA have a 2:1:1 BCAA ratio so a dosage of around 8-10g is optimal.

    Do you think timing is important and when do you like to take it?
    100% yes. BCAAs are very anti-catabolic and directly signal protein synthesis. This makes them great to take before and after (or during) training and cardio sessions.
