BCAA from Optimum Nutrition delivers five grams of branched chain amino acids in a 2:1:1 ratio in each serve. This product is instantised to ensure it will stay mixed in liquid for a longer time, improving absorption and bioavailability.
The branched chain amino acids (Leucine, Isoleucine and valine) are termed “essential” as the body cannot make them. Therefore, they must be consumed through the diet or supplements in order to support a range of bodily functions, including muscle protein synthesis. The three BCAAs are literally incorporated into muscle tissue, while leucine provides the all-important trigger in order to get this process started.
BCAAs are extremely important for anabolism and muscle growth, and are depleted during intense training. The use of Optimum Nutrition BCAA aids cellular energy to muscles, improves recovery time, reduces muscle soreness, prevents muscle catabolism and support lean muscle gains.
How to Use BCAA Optimum Nutrition
Add 2 scoops (9.5g) of powder to 300-350ml cold water or your favourite beverage, mix and consume between meals, before or during exercise, or immediately after workouts with a quality protein food source.
