BCAA+G™ is the ultimate muscle recovery formula nutritionally engineered for today’s serious athlete and health enthusiast.*
BCAA+G™ contains a precise blend of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and L-Glutamine, which are clinically proven to be essential for building muscle size and strength.* BCAA+G™ increases protein synthesis, nitrogen retention and most importantly protects hard earned muscle from the stress of heavy training and intense exercise. Clinical investigations have proven that the amino acids in BCAA+G™ help the body recover quicker after intense training and promote lean muscle gains.*
During intense training or dieting, muscle tissue can decrease, drastically reducing protein synthesis, or the ability to build muscle. Research has indicated that BCAAs and Glutamine supplementation support the free amino acid pool in the muscle tissue necessary for supporting protein synthesis and allowing the body to build lean muscle mass. Because the body cannot manufacture its own BCAAs, their importance is vital for maximum muscle growth and recovery.*
Take BCAA+G™ during and/or after exercise to maintain metabolic rate and discourage muscle wasting.*
BCAAs, leucine, valine, and isoleucine are a group of three essential amino acids that are structurally different from other amino acids and are primarily metabolized in skeletal muscle. The rate limiting enzyme in BCAA breakdown is branched-chain keto acid dehydrogenase, which is highly active in skeletal muscle tissue.
Exercise promotes increased BCAA oxidation for its use as an energy source and fuel for workout.* This increased breakdown of BCAA helps maintain energy levels by providing carbon as a direct energy source and glucose levels by providing substrates for the citric acid cycle and gluconeogenesis.* Because BCAA can serve as a “fuel” for skeletal muscle, intra-workout supplementation can support endurance and sports performance.*
Leucine stimulates protein synthesis through activation of mTOR, supporting muscle synthesis.
Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid that has multiple roles in the body. Glutamine can support digestive health as an energy source for intestinal cells.* It acts mainly as a “nitrogen shuttle” between organs, supporting nitrogen balance throughout the body and a precursor for amino acids and nucleotide synthesis.*
Glutamine is also a powerful cell volumizer, also called cell swelling, which can stimulate anabolic pathways (synthesis of proteins and glycogen) and inhibits catabolic pathways (protein degradation).*
During times of stress, such as exercise, skeletal muscle is broken down to provide sufficient glutamine and BCAAs into the body’s free amino acid pool.* Restoring BCAAs and glutamine levels after exercise is vital to recovery and supporting this free amino acid pool so less muscle breakdown takes place.*
