BCAA+ Powder combines the branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) — leucine, isoleucine, and valine — along with the amino acid, L-glutamine for a synergistic effect in building muscle tissue and supporting the immune system.* BCAAs are unique in that they are a direct source of energy for skeletal muscles while also serving as intermediates in the ATP-producing citric acid cycle. They stimulate the building of protein in muscle, help reduce muscle breakdown during exercise, and regulate protein metabolism throughout the body.*
BCAAs are unique in that even in the absence of resistance training (weightlifting), they’ve been shown to stimulate lean muscle synthesis. For this reason, they may be helpful for anyone looking to build lean mass, in particular those recovering from injury or trauma, individuals with conditions that may result in accelerated breakdown of muscle tissue, and older individuals who may be at risk for losing muscle mass through the natural aging process.
