Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard BCAA

 

 

 

New BCAA formula from Optimum Nutrition in the Gold Standard Pro range
Delivers a 2:1:1 ratio BCAA's
Essential to "switching" on protein synthesis for lean muscle gains
Provides an energy source to muscles to fuel workouts
Provides electrolytes to assist rehydration and aid proper muscle function
Provides immune system support which is essential for those who train hard

 

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard BCAA, the latest additon to the Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard range has finally hit the shelves. This long awaited BCAA intra-workout has got all the optimum lovers talking.

 

 

The Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard BCAA comes in the most scientifically researched ratio of 2:1:1 Leucine, Isoleucine to Valine. This ratio is of extreme importance due to the loss of leucine during physical exercise. Leucine is the primary amino acid that is depleted during training but is also the most crucial amino acid when it comes to builiding muscle as it is required to activate protein synthesis. Both valine and isoleucine are also involved but to a lesser extent making the higher leucine content of paramount importance when trying to build lean muscle.

 

Not only containing the BCAA's for protein synthesis, muscle growth and recovery, Gold Standard BCAA also contains electrolytes which are important for hydration and correct muscle functiion. Water plays a crucial role in muscle function. It plays a role in transportation of nutrients and in the production of enzymes which are necessary to catalyse reaction in the body including that of energy metabolism. Even dehydration as low as 2% can cause impaired muscle function and can lead to muscle cramping and a poore performance.

 

Anyone who trains hard knows the immume system can take a battering with high intensity workouts. Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard BCAA contains Wellmune WPG to support immune system health and to ensure you can keep training at the highest capacity. Gold Standard BCAA also contains Rhodiola Extract. Rhodiola is an adaptogen, meaning it helps the body cope with stress, including physical stress. It has also been shown to improve muscle recovery time and may also improve attention for a more focused workout.

 

To Train Harder & Recover Better you need Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard BCAA!

 

Gold Standard BCAA FAQ's

 

Q. When is the best time to take Gold Standard BCAA's?

A. Gold Standard BCAA's are best taken as an intra-workout supplement to fuel the muscles and provide electrolytes to ensure hydration so you rmuscles are functioning at their highest capacity during your workout. You can however, take a serving before training and a serving post-training if you prefer.

 

Q. Can I take Gold Standard BCAA's with Gold Standard Pre-workout?

A. In short, yes you can. The Gold Standard Pre-workout contains caffeine and other ingrdients to increase workout performance such as strength, muscle pump and stimulant energy and is best taken before your workout. You can then use Gold Standard BCAA to provide energy at a cellular level and to prime your body for muscle growth by enhancing protein synthesis.

 

Q. Can I use Gold Standard BCAA with Protein Powder?

A. Yes protein powder contains all the amino acids and is a great, convenient way to boost your protein intake as well as being easily absorbed post-workout compared to a protein meal which would take much longer to digest. The Gold Standard BCAA contains only bcaa's (branch chain amino acids) so just taking this supplemet alone would not meet all of your protein requirements.r

 

Q. Can I take Gold Standard BCAA if I am a professional athlete?

A. Gold Standard BCAA is a banned substance tested formula suitable for professional athletes. This being said you should always check with your governing body before taking supplements if you are a tested athlete.

 

Q.  Can I stack Gold Standard BCAA with creatine?

A. Yes you can use Gold Standard BCAA's with creatine. These two supplements work differently and would definitely complement each other. Creatine provides muscular endurance by recycling our energy molecule ATP, and is also an anabolic signaler. The BCAA's provide cellular energy and stimulat protein synthesis, so together creatine and the Gold Standard BCAA would create an anabolic environment for muscle growth.

 

Q. How many serves of Gold Standard BCAA can I have in one day?

A. Gold Standard BCAA can be taken serveral times per day. The most important being your intra-workout serve. If you have a heavy exercise regime and require additonal recovery nutrients taking Gold Standard BCAA during the day may be beneficial to ensure you are sufficiently recovered for your next workout

 

Q. How many calories in Gold Standard BCAA?

A. Gold Standard BCAA contains only 15 calories per serving.

 

Q. Can I use Gold Standard BCAA if I am cutting up?

A. Yes you can. Gold Standard BCAA's are a low calorie supplement and a great way to fuel your muscles. If you are fasting or carbohdyrate depleted before your workouts a BCAA supplement can actually prevent  you breaking down muscle to fuel your workout. The BCAA's with provide a fuel source for your working muscles and have a muscle sparing effect.
