Branched–Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) are predominantly the three amino acids (building blocks of protein) L Leucine, L Isoleucine, L Valine.
BCAA’s have long been studied, showing benefits in reduce muscle soreness, preventing muscle breakdown and triggering protein synthesis, and provide faster recovery. They are essential because the body is unable to make them out of other amino acids, meaning they must be ingested through food or supplements.
The BCAA’s make up 40 percent of the daily requirement of all nine essential amino acids, indicating their importance.
Our BCAA combines a scientifically validated dose of BCAA’s (10g), at the most verified ratio studied (2–1–1), with the highest dose of Citrulline Malate (2.5g) on the market. It also combines electrolytes (sodium), as well as potassium to assist with hydration.
Citrulline–malate supplementation has proven to enhance the use of other amino acids, especially the branched chain amino acids during exercise and also enhance the production of arginine derived metabolites such as nitrite, creatine, ornithine and urea.
To reap optimal benefits for training and recovery it is recommended to supplement during workouts (especially if training on an empty stomach in the morning), but can be used post workout and at other times during the day.
Recommended Dosage: 1 Level 5g Scoop
