Simply Protein Complete Whey
There are various types of protein sources available to you. Protein powders are popping up everywhere, but what's really in these products? Most of them do contain whey protein, but some incorporate fillers like maltodextrin, which adds carbohydrates, and other protein sources like calcium caseinate or milk protein isolate. Although these other protein sources are high quality, they do not offer the same benefits unique to whey protein. That is why EAS has developed Simply Whey, an economical, high-quality, protein powder made with 100% whey protein.
Whey protein has one of the highest biological values of any protein supplement on the market due to its excellent amino acid profile, solubility, and digestibility. A high biological value means that it may 'yield' more usable grams of amino acids. An active lifestyle and regular exercise can be taxing on the immune system and whey protein is at the top of the list for immuno-enhancing potential. It also contains the highest concentration of branched chain amino acids (BCAA) of any single protein source. This BCAA content is important to active individuals because BCAA's are an integral part of muscle metabolism and are the first amino acids sacrificed during muscle protein breakdown. Not only does Simply Whey provide all the exceptional benefits that a pure whey protein powder offers, but it is also low in carbohydrates, fat, lactose and cholesterol.
Simply Protein Complete Whey provides a high quality source of protein to help you meet your daily protein requirements.
SimplyProtein Complete Soy
There is no escaping it, protein supplementation is the hot topic of the sports nutrition industry.
Everyone has a different take on where that protein should be derived. In sports nutrition, the protein source of choice has been whey protein. Although soy protein has taken a distant second in the past, being reserved only for the vegetarian, it is fast becoming a popular protein choice. When presented with a clear picture of soy protein and its features and benefits, it is apparent why soy is gaining recognition.
Soy protein is derived from soybeans, which have a higher protein content than any other legume.
Soy Protein Health Claims
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is authorizing the use, on food labels and in food labeling, of health claims on the association between soy protein and reduced risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). The agency has concluded that soy protein included in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of CHD by lowering blood cholesterol levels. The final rule published in the Federal Register is available as an Adobe PDF document (196) pages.
The FDA recommends that consumers incorporate four servings of at least 6.25 grams of soy protein into their daily diet - a total of at least 25 grams of soy protein each day. In order to claim the healthy effects of soy, a product must meet the following criteria:
6.25 grams soy protein or more
Low fat (less than 3 grams)
Low saturated fat (less than 1 gram)
Low cholesterol (less than 20 mg.)
Foods made with the whole soybean may also qualify for the health claim if they contain no fat in addition to that present in the whole soybean . These would include soy foods such as: tofu, soymilk, soy-based burgers, tempeh, and soy nuts.
Approximately 38% of the soy bean is protein, however, when the beans are highly refined to reveal the most proteinaceous fraction of the bean, soy protein isolate is the result. Isolated soy is the most concentrated source of soy protein and yields more than 90% protein.
Soy proteins provide all the essential amino acids needed to fulfill human nutritional requirements for growth, maintenance, and physical stress.
This amino acid pattern is among the most complete of all proteins. With a PDCAAS (Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score) of 1, the highest rating for protein quality according to the FDA, soy is comparable in quality to animal proteins such as whey, egg, and milk. In fact, soy protein contains more than twice the amount of the amino acid glutamine than whey protein. In addition, soy protein isolate contains high concentrations of naturally occurring isoflavones.
Isoflavones are components of soy that have been shown to demonstrate cholesterol lowering properties.*
EAS has made it easy for you to incorporate this excellent source of high quality vegetable protein into your diet with the new SimplyProtein Complete Soy, which delivers 20 grams of naturally sweetened soy protein isolate with only 1.5 grams of fat and no cholesterol. Whether your goals are to lose fat, increase lean mass or improve sports performance, SimplyProtein Complete Soy is a delicious, healthy, quality supplement worth incorporating into your daily nutrition plan.
*Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving of SimplyProtein Complete Soy provides 20 grams of soy protein.
Serving Size: 1 level scoop (44 grams)
Recommended Use: Supplement one to three servings daily depending on how much protein you need added to your diet.

Structured EFA contains vitally important essential and conditionally essential fatty acids which may be lacking in many athletes' diets. A deficiency of these indispensable nutrients has been linked to compromised function of several very important metabolic systems. Regular supplementation with Structured EFA ensures essential fatty acids such as omega-6, omega-3, EPA, DHA, CLA, and GLA are available to support the optimal metabolic response to intense exercise in areas including:
Recognizing the importance of essential fatty acids (EFA's) in maximizing the positive effects of exercise, the research scientists at EAS have engineered a very unique fatty acid supplement designed for athletes. This new scientifically designed supplement contains a precise mixture of essential fatty acids, CLA, and cofactors which scientific studies show may support athletes' efforts to build muscle, burn fat, and maintain optimum health.
Beyond the fact that your body can't manufacture essential fatty acids and they are necessary for life, another benefit which is specific to Structured EFA is its potential effect on the production of "prostaglandins," which are hormone-like substances that influence all cellular activities including your body's metabolism. Prostaglandins have a multitude of positive effects in your body, e.g., they can relax blood vessels, improve circulation, lower blood pressure, help remove excess sodium and excess fluid, and much more.
Recommended Use: as a dietary supplement, take two capsules two to three times daily with meals.
Consuming the recommended daily dose of Structured EFA (6 capsules) provides a rich array of fatty acids, including
1,800 mg of flaxseed oil as a rich source of linoleic acid
1,200 mg of cold-water fish oil containing DHA and EPA
600 mg of GLA-rich evening primrose oil
1,200 mg of CLA.
6 mg Vitamin E (natural d-alpha tocopherol)
600 mcg Vitamin A (retinol) SyntheVol HP
In the world of Sports Nutrition, creatine has been at the forefront of dietary supplementation to enhance performance, mass and strength. Until now, one of the major limiting factors in creatine supplementation has been how to deliver effective amounts to the muscle cell. Now, thanks to EAS' researchers, SyntheVol HP takes creatine transport and muscle cell dynamics to the next level.
SyntheVol HP brings you cutting edge technology in creatine delivery and science-based research dealing with muscle cell energetics, cell volume and protein synthesis. To facilitate creatine delivery, SyntheVol HP first sets out to "kick start" one of the main creatine transport mechanisms-insulin. To do this, SyntheVol HP utilizes a specialized low carbohydrate blend including Vitargo, a high-molecular weight carbohydrate that may dramatically increase glycogen storage. To further enhance creatine transport, a precise blend of L-Arginine, D-Pinitol, Taurine and ALA have been added which may enhance insulin, nitric oxide production and insulin sensitivity, key components of insulin function and nutrient transport. In addition, glutamine peptides are added to increase cell volume and protein synthesis, two key determinants of anabolism within the cell.
Now you can effectively deliver creatine to the target - your muscles - without excessive amounts of carbohydrates.
USDA studies show that 68% of self-selected diets contain less than two thirds of the RDA for zinc16 and 39% contain less than two thirds of the RDA for magnesium17. The level of deficiency may be even higher in active people because strenuous exercise causes significant losses of minerals and trace elements.2 University research demonstrates that even minor deficiencies of zinc and magnesium may compromise testosterone production,8,15 suppress the immune system,9 and impair muscle growth, muscle function, and energy production.3,4,5,7,11,13
Don't underestimate the vital role of trace minerals, such as zinc and magnesium, in supporting your body's ability to build muscle and enhance performance. As someone who works out intensely, you want to be sure your mineral needs are met and therefore avoid the possible pitfalls of deficiencies.
EAS has developed ZMA HP, a cutting-edge mineral formula designed to help ensure your daily requirements for zinc and magnesium are covered. ZMA HP contains only the most stable, readily available, easily absorbed chelated minerals. EAS has added Vitamin B6 to help support magnesium and zinc absorption and to assist in your body's ability to build muscle and maintain high energy levels.6,10,12
ZMA HP is a uniquely synergistic mineral formula designed to support healthy anabolic-hormone production* (without the use of pro-hormones) in conjunction with an effective exercise and nutrition program. In addition, zinc, magnesium, and Vitamin B6, some of the components in ZMA HP, may help support greater increases in strength as well as enhance muscle growth.1 What makes this High-Performance formula so unique is the addition of a synergistic blend of antioxidants that includes Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC). Vitamin C has numerous benefits, including immune-system support, antioxidant properties, and support for healthy connective tissue.4 The main function of Vitamin E is to protect cells in the body from physical stress, thus avoiding some of the typical consequences of overtraining. NAC is also a powerful antioxidant that may reduce muscle damage associated with intense exercise by collecting and destroying harmful molecules known as free radicals that contribute to cell damage.
High-Performance nutritional supplementation starts with the science behind the products. ZMA HP is uniquely designed and formulated to support optimal muscle recuperation and proper hormone production when combined with an effective exercise and nutrition program.
