HDAA: High-Demand Amino Acids

Your body has a high demand for a group of six specific amino acids known as the HDAA. These "6 Aminos" are also lost in high quantities in sweat every day. When you exercise, these losses of HDAA are magnified and some people lose them faster than others.

It is important to keep hydrated and restock the HDAA and Electrolytes whilst exercising and playing sports. 

Dehydration can lead to:

  • Reduced concentration and focus,
  • Fatigue and muscle cramps.

ElectrAAte® and OptimAAte® provide the HDAA to keep you going.

  • HDAA + Electrolytes for hydration

  • HDAA for your muscles

ElectrAAte® mixed with water provides fluid, HDAA and electrolytes which are lost most through sweat.

Sweating occurs to help the body maintain a constant temperature and not overheat. Sweating is magnified during exercise or when you are living in hot conditions. People can lose between 1-2L of fluid per hour of exercise or hard work. 

ElectrAAte® can be taken at any time of the day and is particularly effective during and after exercise.

ElectrAAte® should be taken as part of a healthy diet to maintain hydration and support exercise and recovery.

ElectrAAte® when mixed with water, is the only formulated supplementary sports drink designed to provide the HDAA with fluid + electrolytes for maintaining hydration.

  • 86 servings per tub; 81c per serve
  • One serve of ElectrAAte® contains only 26kJ or 6.3 Calories

Daily support:   

OptimAAte® mixed with water restocks the HDAA that the body uses most during the day.

The "6 Aminos" are in great demand during daily activities and are lost in sweat at many times faster rates than the other 14 protein amino acids. The body is constantly breaking down muscle proteins to supply these HDAA on demand and then subsequently spends energy on rebuilding these proteins during recovery.

These losses are amplified when living in a hot climate and during daily exercise.

OptimAAte® can be taken at any time of the day and is particularly effective during and after exercise.

OptimAAte® should be taken as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle to support exercise and recovery. 

OptimAAte® is the only formulated supplementary sports drink designed to replenish the HDAA that are lost most during the day.
