Most athletes and weekend warriors are familiar with the Body Science (BSc) label by now. Since starting up in Australia in 1999, the company did not take long to blaze a trail through the sports science industry. Two driving forces have compelled them to success: innovation and ethics. 

 

Amino BCAA Fuel is an example of this. Designed to be consumed during exercise, it works hard to replenish what’s lost through sweat and hard work, but doesn’t stop there. The special combination of ingredients also demonstrates powerful anabolic and anti-catabolic qualities.

Key Features

Amino BCAA Fuel performs a few different tasks. To start, it’s a highly refreshing drink that delivers a satisfying thirst-quencher during intense workout sessions. At the same time, it’s low in calories and carbohydrates, so it doesn’t threaten weight management programs.

 

Its real power, however, is in its ability to inject a training session with extra oomph – not only in the energetic sense, but also in terms of boosting muscle growth and stamina, and easing post-workout stress.

 

Ingredients and Dosage

BSc Amino BCAA is sold in a convenient 30 serve bag. Each 9g serve should be mixed with 300ml cold water and, for best results, sipped slowly during a training session. 

 

The key ingredient is a proprietary amino acid blend, containing the BCAA’s (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine), beta-alanine, L-Taurine, L-Glutamine, Arginine and L-Glycine. There’s also a matrix designed to protect your muscle cells from oxidation and an advanced electrolyte blend for hydration. 

 

Pros and Efficacy

Amino BCAA's biggest draw card is its ability to multi-task, while keeping calorie intake low. The incredibly sophisticated research that goes into Body Science products means that an exceptional level of efficacy is achieved through a perfectly-balanced combination of elements. 

 

This BSc formulation of branched chain amino acids and other nutrients provides an energy source for the muscle cell and stimulates protein synthesis. It enables an anti-catabolic environment, extremely important during intense physical activity and improves recovery, enhancing muscle growth. Hydration is covered with the addition of electrolytes and the antioxidant complex protects you from exercise-induced free-radicals.

 

Cons

Not all athletes will find the dosage of BCAAs to be high enough. In this case, they may prefer to try Body Science BCEAA Ultra, which offers 2.5 grams of BCAAs per serve, with another 1 gram of other EAAs on top of that.

 

Taste and Mixability

The taste palette is refreshing and bright, with 3 options on offer: Cola, Pineapple and Super Berry. They’re pleasing without being sickly sweet and fluid mixability means no residue is left behind. 

 

Conclusion

For athletes who want more than just hydration from a sports drink, Amino BCAA Fuel from Body Science hits the spot. It refreshes and quenches thirst while immensely expanding the body’s capacity for strength, power and endurance.
