It seems that almost every sports nutrition and wellness company has a run-of-the-mill BCAA. Funnily enough, this is actually why we're so excited about Amazonia's RAW Bioactive BCAA! It not only delivers the valuable branched chain amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine in an ideal 2:1:1 ratio, but also boosts your mineral status, hydration and even supports the natural generation of an exciting compound called nitric oxide. Not bad for a BCAA ... and certainly far from run-of-the-mill!
BCAAs offer some great benefits, including reduced delayed onset muscle soreness (AKA DOMS) and decreased muscle damage markers, such as creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase1,2. These are indeed some handy biological changes to make, as they lead to less soreness and restriction of movement in the days of healing that come after an intensive bout of training. This means the next session, whenever that may be, will be met with more spring in your step.
Amazonia RawFIT Bio Active BCAAs also delivers the naturally sourced key minerals marine magnesium, sodium chloride from Himalayan pink salt, and potassium from coconut water. These key minerals are also known as electrolyes, and hasten the integral process of hydration, which is another reason why this product is ideal for use during exercise.
Amazonia BCAAs also contains natural nitrates sourced from beetroot. Nitrates provide an alternative pathway for the synthesis of nitric oxide rather than the well-known arginine route3. Nitric Oxide is believed to support blood flow to muscle tissue during exercise, thus improving oxygen and nutrient delivery, which may offer an ergogeic advantage.
Amazonia RAW Bioactive BCAAs is a comprehensive natural product that puts a wholistic spin on intra-workout supplements.
