Balance BCAA contains 600mg of branched chain amino acids in each capsule to support muscle recovery, lean growth and reduce delayed onset soreness. This product many be taken during or after exercise, or with meals to enrich protein quality and the anabolic response.
- Reduce Muscle Soreness (DOMS).
- Optimum ratio of BCAAs.
- Fuel Muscle Energy.
- Maximise mTOR Anabolism.
Balance BCAA Muscle Growth Capsules contains the well-researched 2:1:1 ratio of leucine to isoleucine to valine. The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are actually three of the nine essential amino acids, that have been shown to reduce delayed-onset muscle soreness, especially when taken before exercise1.
This effect is believed to occur via the stimulation of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), which is one of the triggers for muscle protein synthesis (MPS). MPS is responsible for muscle repair and growth, leading to the deposition of essential and non-essential amino acids into muscle tissue, and is also an important part of healthy muscle protein turnover.
Research is starting to suggest also, that BCAAs may be even more beneficial when taken with a source of all of the essential amino acids, whether this be a quality protein food, such as fish or eggs, protein powder, or essential amino acid blend.
The higher leucine content in the BCAAs will likely stimlate mTOR maximally to uptake the EAAs at a higher rate, thus boosting MPS efficiently2. Balance BCAA may therefore be taken with meals to maximise the anabolic effect of these amino acids, or before exercise to reduce muscle soreness.
