Maxs BCAA Capsules offer a 10:1:1 ratio of branched chain amino acids, containing 2 grams per 4 capsule serve. BCAAs trigger mTOR, essential for muscle protein synthesis which help to overcome catabolic signals, such as exercise-induced cortisol.
- 10:1:1 BCAA Ratio.
- Fast Absorption.
- Pharmaceutical Quality
- Reduce DOMS, Fuel Performance.
Maxs BCAA 10:1:1 Capsules deliver 10 parts leucine, to 1 part each of isoleucine and valine. The branched chain amino acids are three of the nine essential amino acids needed to repair and rebuild skeletal muscle tissue. In fact, leucine has been identified as a major stimulator of a trigger for the anabolic pathway, called mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR)1.
BCAAs are well known for their ability to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness, particularly when taken before exercise2. Additional research has also demonstrated that BCAAs can reduce markers of muscle damage, such as creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase3.
And these certainly are great outcomes for any exercise or sports enthusiast, as less muscle damage means faster recovery, less muscle pain and generally better adaptation to your chosen activity, whether it be powerlifting or snow skiing. Maxs BCAA 10:1:1 Capsules certainly are a versatile product with myriad benefits.
Maxs BCAA 10:1:1 Capsules may even be taken with a sub-optimal protein dose in order to maximise the efficiency of that protein. So if you are heading out for a meal with family or friends, you can be sure that even without enough quality protein in the meal, a little mTOR triggering with Maxs BCAA 10:1:1 Capsules will help your body utilise the protein available to you by triggering anabolic signals. Even if you have blown your calorie budget!
Less guilt. More growth. Who could argue?

How to Use Maxs BCAA 10:1:1 Capsules
Take 4 capsules immediately before exercise. Alternatively, to heighten mTOR signalling and muscle repair and growth, take 4 capsules with a main meal.
