What is BCAA 4:1:1?

Branched chain amino acids are the three essential aminos Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. This blend has been formulated by our in house nutritionist to provide an advance dose of Leucine, arguably the most important amino acid for the preservation, growth and repair of muscle tissue. As with any essential amino acid, it is necessary to consume BCAAs through the diet as the human body is unable to synthesise them. Conveniently, this blend supplies 3.33g of Leucine, 825mg of Isoleucine and 825mg of Valine.

What are the performance benefits of BCAAs?

BCAAs have a number of performance benefits beyond promoting the growth and maintenance of muscle tissue. They are metabolised directly in the skeletal muscle and have been shown to regulate muscle protein synthesis and muscle recovery. This is particularly important during intense exercise as muscle cells can begin to break down, supplementing with BCAAs before and during exercise has been shown to suppress this process. In addition, BCAAs can be used as a source of energy during exercise, which is another one of the many reasons why they are such a popular ingredient in intra workout drinks.

Sounds great! So, what's the advantage of extra Leucine?

Leucine is arguably the most important amino acid for muscle growth and development. It activates the cellular signalling pathway known as mTOR in the muscle which encourages muscular protein synthesis, studies have shown that a dose of 2.8g leucine along with other essential amino acids is sufficient.

Who should use this supplement?

Branched Chain Amino Acids have been found to be effective at maintaining lean muscle and promoting protein synthesis in active individuals of all ages. We would recommend using this supplement to anyone looking to increase their intake of BCAAs.

What goes well with BCAA 4:1:1 1500mg?

BCAA 4:1:1 1500mg can be used alongside your own pre workout and intra workout shakes. Some good supplements to combine this with are Taurine to increase muscular 'pump' during exercise, Beta Alanine to increase muscular endurance and Creatine Monohydrate to increase muscular power.
