Our BCAA supplement is a combination of 3 basic essential amino acids, leucine, icoleucine and valine. The body needs these essential amino acids but cannot make them on its own. Branch chain amino acids are usually derived from food and make up a large portion of the bodies’ total amino acid pool. BCAAs have been proven to aid in building muscle, decrease muscle fatigue and alleviate muscle soreness. They have also been shown to aid in regulating blood sugar levels by stimulating secretion of both insulin and glucagon. When taken orally, both glucogen-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose dependant insulinotrophic polypeptide (GIP) lends to greater and more prolonged glucagon secretion. Maintaining balanced blood glucose levels allows for decreased protein breakdown and increases protein synthesis. The most ideal times to add 5 to 10g of BCAAs to your training regime is intra-workout, pre workout or post workout to help fuel your body and repair fatigued muscles! Our delicious grape flavor blends and is perfect to sip with 4-6 oz cold water any time of day!

Role of Ingredients
Our body does not produce BCAA naturally, so we all need proper BCCA supplementation for maximum protein biosynthesis and energy production. An optimal amount of BCCA promotes one-third of total muscle building, relieves fatigue, and reduces muscle soreness, increasing the productivity of workout. [1, 3] Further, BCCA helps inflammation and support blood supply to the tissues that speed up the post-workout muscle recovery. Moreover, BCCA inhibits protein degradation, restores energy reservoirs, and supports physical performance for maximum exercise outcomes. [3, 4] The addition of Vit B6 potentiates the consumption of fats and helps attenuation the waist to hip ratio.  Additionally, the presence of L-Glutamine preserves cell integrity, removes free radicals, and relieves oxidative stress in tissues.
