Advanced BCAA™ supplements your body before and after workouts to promote hard, lean muscle growth while reducing the breakdown of muscle tissue!
BCAA’s are of special importance for athletes because they are metabolized in the muscle, rather than in the liver. Theoretically, after digestion once protein is broken down into individual amino acids these amino acids can either be used to build new proteins or be burned as fuel to produce energy. If an athlete’s diet is adequate in nutrition then the above “essential” amino acids will be used for protein synthesis which is optimal for advanced human performance.
Essential amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine are not produced in the body such as non-essential amino acids, but rather obtained through proper nutrition. Therefore, it is often theorized that the supplementation of BCAA’s are of essential importance to athletes due to their ability to alleviate any deficiencies that the body alone cannot produce. BCAA’s have also been known in reducing fatigue in both anaerobic and endurance sports.
L-Leucine has been considered to be the most critical BCAA because of its anti-catabolic properties (preventing muscle breakdown) and anabolic (muscle building effects). L-Leucine also plays a vital role in protein synthesis and promotes the rapid healing of tissues. L-Leucine has positive effects on sports performance, including increased stamina and the ability of the body to preserve lean muscle mass during high intensity workouts. After periods of intense exertion, L-Leucine assists in preventing the breakdown of muscle by the body and regulates energy and blood sugar levels.
L-Valine & L-Isoleucine
Both L-Valine & L-Isoleucine are needed to increase the bio-availability of complex carbohydrate intake and are absorbed by the muscle cells for anabolic muscle building activity. L-Isoleucine plays an important role in regulating blood sugar levels and L-Valine plays an equally important role in glucose metabolism.
