BCAA 5000 has been formulated to benefit lean muscle growth, boost energy, fight fatigue and speed up recovery. With the scientifically proven 2:1:1 ratio, you'll receive essential amino energy, as well as increased endurance.
BCAAs have been shown in research to play a critical role in muscle protein synthesis and act as a fuel during exercise. Not only is there scientific research supporting BCAAs for improving muscle recovery but they also have been shown to help preserve existing muscle tissue. Additionally, BCAAs play an important part in the maintenance of immune system function.
Leucine: Often considered the 'king' of all the amino acids, Leucine is one of the most beneficial amino acids all around, by itself it can stimulate muscle protein synthesis which is the process responsible for muscle growth and recovery.+
Isoleucine: Stimulates protein synthesis to a lesser degree than leucine, its primary role is that it significantly increases glucose uptake and the usage of glucose during exercise, leading to greater energy production. There is also evidence that isoleucine may prevent fat storage by stimulating the receptors that inhibit fat storage and increase fat burning.+
Valine: This BCAA is known for its effects in promoting muscular endurance and decreasing fatigue during exercise. The mechanism of action is through valine competing with and winning against tryptophan for entry into the brain. Tryptophan converts to serotonin which signals to the body that it is fatigued, therefore leading to decreases in muscle endurance and strength, so by preventing tryptophan from entering the brain, valine prevents fatigue.+
