50%. That’s the amount of amino acids you actually absorb from food.
No matter how much protein you eat, you’ll still likely only be able to tap into half of the amino acids you consume.
Why is that a problem?
Well, amino acids are pretty important. They’re the building blocks of protein in the body, and they help you build new muscle, support energy production, and keep the systems in your body running smoothly.
If you’re not getting enough amino acids, you could experience low energy, workout fatigue, loss of muscle, and a long list of other health issues*. All the stuff you don’t want if you’re working towards peak performance.
Essential amino acids (EAAs) are even more crucial, because your body can’t make them on its own. You can only get them from food (and remember, you only absorb half from food!).
Supplementing with EAAs is an easy way to cover your bases, unlock peak performance, and ensure your body is getting the fuel it needs to crush it day after day.

"On an airplane? I pop 10 Kion Aminos with a can of club soda to crush food cravings and keep me from digging around in my bag for dark chocolate.
Post-workout? I take 5-10 immediately, which is much easier than mixing a protein shake.
Injured or sick? I'll take up to 30 in a single day to give my body extra protein without creating digestive strain.
In ketosis or fasting? I completely and instantly crush any appetite or food cravings with a single serving of Kion Aminos tablets or powder." — Ben
