BCAAs are highly Anti-Catabolic. Since muscle tissue absorbs BCAAs directly, your muscle tissue has the fuel it needs and dramatically limits muscle tissue breakdown. For competitive athletes looking to increase strength and muscle size, BCAAs are the must-have supplement (in conjunction with diet and resistance training).
L-Leucine provides support to lean muscle tissue and energy, specifically when training intensely, and helps to maintain a positive nitrogen balance in the body. Leucine is referred to as a “limiting nutrient,” meaning the body needs to be supplied by a specific amount in relation to other aminos to assimilate protein in the body. Leucine activates a major anabolic pathway called the mTOR pathway that stimulates muscle protein synthesis (in conjunction with diet and resistance training).
L-Valine plays a role in glucose metabolism, protein synthesis and provides immune support. It provides extra glucose for energy during times of hardcore training, making it a valuable addition for any athlete. It is also involved in the detoxification of excess nitrogen in the liver.
L-Isoleucine provides muscle recovery post-workout and has been found to be helpful in supporting blood sugar levels already within normal range. ISOLEUCINE plays a role in haemoglobin formation and can increase energy levels and extend endurance (in conjunction with diet and resistance training).
