Product Description

Vegan Essential Aminos

Why would you not take Vegan Essential Aminos? These amino acids are exactly the same as other amino acids, we just make sure they are coming from vegan-friendly Non-GMO sources.

Initially, we saw a problem in the types of protein, amino acid requirement and the amino acids available for those choosing to live a vegan lifestyle.[2] This can be especially true in those that also train hard and are eating for sporting performance or for body shaping and physique goals.[3]

Whilst trying to find a solution to the problem within the vegan community, we discovered that the existing amino acid industry may have its own problems that the vegans can fix. The Vegan product was inspired by vegan requirements, the vegan ethics and environmental ideals, but the end result is something we can all use and benefit from. This is not a compromise, you don’t have to get lower quality to be environmentally and Vegan friendly, they are the same amino acids you find in the hardcore performance supplements, they are just clean.

The amino acids themselves are exactly the same. It is just the starting material and other steps that vary between the vegan amino and non-vegan amino. As we found out from our raw material suppliers, it is simply potluck as to which sourced material they happen to have in stock at the time. Most manufacturers and supplement companies don’t even consider this when they make their amino products as the product are based on average costings, not starting materials.

 

How are aminos made?

They don’t extract aminos from plants. It is too expensive and too low yield with too much burden on the environment and potential GMO infiltration.[7] Instead, vegan essential aminos are made through the fermentation of sugars from plants. ATP Science ensures the sugars are NON-GMO and the microbes involved are also NON-GMO. This is how our intestinal microbiome makes amino acids for us and them in our normal digestive process. Many other amino acids are made from things like duck feathers, animal blood, and animal skin. So that is actually common sense and nice and clean with very low environmental impact.

Hydroxyproline in a Vegan diet

There are very few plants that contain hydroxyproline; the vegan diet does not supply large amounts of hydroxyproline. Hydroxyproline can be made in the body by hydroxylating proline with vitamin C.

Hydroxyproline is necessary for the body to naturally produce and maintain normal levels of collagen.[12] If you are training hard or on a campaign to be healthier[13], then you need to maintain adequate collagen to support:

  • beauty through aiding dermal elasticity and hydration*
  • healthy bone and dental tissue*
  • healthy connective tissue in muscles and joints
  • healthy mucosal linings of the gut, oral, respiratory and reproductive membranes[18]*

The primary role of Hydroxyproline within the body is a building block of the collagen structure.[20] Ensuring adequate hydroxyproline through the diet or dietary supplementation will allow proline and vitamin C to be available for other things, this can remove the burden and help to maintain ideal levels.* The rate-limiting step for collagen synthesis is nutrient availability and in particular hydroxyproline.[21] Hydroxyproline has excellent bioavailability, absorbed intact as hydroxyproline and delivered to collagen peaking at 1-hour post-ingestion.[22]*

What is Astragin® and why did we add it?

Astragin® is a combination of ginseng and astragalus extracts, it aids the digestion of food and the absorption of nutrients.* It is a modern innovation that follows some ancient traditions.[24]

Astragin® has shown in over a dozen in-vitro studies to improve the absorption of amino acids and other nutrients in Caco-2 cells.[25]*

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Does this include the 9 Essential Amino Acids?

Yes, this included all 9: Histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.

Can this be paired with Noway protein?

Yes absolutely, if you are a non-vegan wanting to extend the amino acid profile of Noway to expand outside of the current profile this is an excellent addition.

What is the best way to take it?

1 serve is 6g scoop into 300ml of cold water, also goes great as a fizzy drink if you pop it with some soda water! You can have this during or post-training.

International Customers Please Read the Below (Especially UK customers)

Import taxes: You may have to pay import taxes and/or customs duties. You may also be required to pay a brokerage (handling) fee for the shipment. These charges are separate from your shipping charge and you will be billed directly for them via the shipping carrier. These shipping and tax rates vary from country to country and also depend upon the products being ordered. ATP Science has no control over these charges.

Declaration of Value and Product Description: International shipments are processed with a commercial invoice as required to ship internationally. Customs may make additional requests based on local laws and regulations. Due to the complexity of some requests, we cannot guarantee that the additional information requested will be provided. The requests may differ depending on the order value, regulations, and other unpredictable factors.

Your shipping address, phone number, and email address: Please make sure your shipping address, phone number, and email are full and complete. The phone number or email may be used by the shipping company to contact you in case they have problems delivering your order. ATP Science is not responsible if you incorrectly enter your address on your order and will not be responsible for your parcel if it is incorrectly delivered because of this.

Customs & Regulatory information: ATP Science will not be liable for packages refused or held by customs for delivery. ATP Science does not take responsibility for any extra charged to the customer by customs/duty/VAT.

Address or other customer error: If a package is returned to ATP Science due to an address error (or any other error) made by the customer, the customer will be responsible for any shipping fees incurred. A refund will be issued for merchandise only, minus a 10% restocking fee*, upon receipt of the returned package. This also applies to customer refusal of a package (in which the customer will have the cost of the return shipment taken from the total refund).

Violation of laws: If a package is returned to ATP Science due to a violation of a country’s laws or import regulations, the customer will be responsible for any and all fees billed to ATP Science as a result. A refund will be issued for merchandise only, upon receipt of the returned package. If an order is seized and destroyed by customs due to regulatory issues, the customer will not receive credit for the merchandise or shipping cost.

Notes on returned packages: If an order is rejected by customs or unable to be delivered, and the cost to return the goods is greater than the value of the goods, ATP Science will instruct the carrier to abandon the package. The customer will not receive a refund for the merchandise or shipping cost. If an order is rejected by you unwilling to pay the duties or taxes ATP Science will only accept the rejected order if the value of the package is more than the cost of shipping to and back again and 10% restocking fee.  If the cost to return the items exceed the cost of goods then ATP Science will instruct the agents to destroy the package and no refund will be available (and you may still be liable to pay your customs duties and taxes). If we do accept the return of the goods your refund will be the total of your order minus the cost to ship the goods back to us (which in some cases is quite a hefty fee).

We request that you contact your customs office and ask about import regulations and restrictions before placing your order. It is important for you to become familiar with Customs policies for your specific country before ordering.

Customs regulations differ by country and not knowing their regulations can result in your order incurring high import duties, the delivery being delayed or even returned. Please check with your Customs office to see if your country permits the shipment of the products you are planning to order from us and if any additional licenses or permits are needed.
