In traditional Strom Sports Nutrition fashion, EssentialMax contains clinically dosed servings to help bring the best possible EAA supplement with no compromise whatsoever.
Uniquely among EAA formulas – Strom has chosen to leave out tryptophan, which is a precursor to 5HTP and can cause sleepiness. Instead replacing it with L-Alanine which is involved and depleted in the production of energy from blood glucose. This makes it a useful inclusion for intra-workout applications, especially if being supplemented alongside a carbohydrate supplement.

Beetroot is a naturally synthesised source of nitrates, and therefore provides building blocks for the body's endogenous nitric oxide production processes. It is also shown to have valuable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, supporting better recovery from oxidative stress and inflammation - which occur during exercise.
So as you understand, beetroot can make a prime addition to this stack for both intra-workout pumps and recovery for the next day. Also check out VascuMAX Pro if you're looking to stack up those beets!
