Staunch BCAA + Hydration
- Loaded with Coconut Water Electrolytes
- High Absorption L-Glutamine
- 2:1:1 Ratio BCAAs
- Increase Performance and Endurance
Staunch BCAA + Hydration is a potent blend of BCAAs, coconut water powder and sustamine. Branched chain amino acids have become extremely popular for use during exercise over the last couple of decades, as research has demonstrated their effectiveness for the management of physical fatigue and muscle soreness.
Staunch BCAA + Hydration contains a no-beating-around-the-bush 7,000mg dose of BCAAs per serve. In fact, researchers indicated that BCAA taken before exercise led to a significant reduction in delayed onset muscle soreness1. Other researchers have indicated that BCAA reduce markers of muscle damage and exhaustion in endurance athletes, such as lactate dehydrogenase and Creatine Kinase2.
Staunch BCAA + Hydration contains alanyl-l-glutamine, a specialised dipeptide of glutamine and alanine. Interestingly, these two amino acids are depleted from muscle tissue during training. Therefore, their supplementation may assist in reducing this muscular depletion, thereby enhancing recovery.
Another interesting fact, is that many amino acids, excluding the BCAAs, absorb better as di or tripeptides than they do in free form amino acid state. L-alanyl-l-glutamine absorbs more efficiently than glutamine alone3. This indicates that more glutamine is going to get to where it needs to get, which is to your muscle tissue. In addition, this form of glutamine has been demonstrated in numerous studies to be safe, pure and more water soluble than free form glutamine powder.
Staunch BCAA + Hydration also contains coconut water powder, which is an amazing natural source of electrolytes. In fact, coconut water powder is approximately 4.7% potassium by weight, and also contains the all-important sodium as well. Because muscle performance can reduce so quickly as a result of dehydration, it is certainly good thing to have some electrolytes in your amino drink.
Staunch BCAA + Hydration is a fantastic and versatile amino acid formulation with naturally sourced electrolytes and a cutting edge form of L-Glutamine. Are you ready to hammer it? This product will ensure that you do …
