BCAA (branched chain amino acids)
BCAA contains 5000mg of Branched Chain Amino Acids in the ideal 2:1:1 ratio of leucine, isoleucine and valine*. In addition, it includes L-Glutamine and a mix of electrolytes to give you a formula specifically designed for athletes. BCAAs are the most abundant amino acids found in muscle tissue, which are the building blocks of protein for your muscles. They are the most readily absorbed group of amino acids and therefore can go straight to the muscle for enhanced performance. The mix of electrolytes and L-glutamine also help replenish and recover from a strenuous exercise session.
- Prevent muscle loss
- Reduces exercise fatigue
- Helps build muscle
- Replenishes electrolytes from sweating during exercise
*These amino acids increase protein synthesis and nitrogen retention, both essential to building lean muscle. They also act as a fuel source to be burned if needed. BCAAs are metabolized directly in the muscle, and are considered “essential” because the body cannot build them from other compounds. Instead, they must come from diet or supplementation.
