What is BCAA+?
BCAA+ is an advanced formula of beneficial branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) in tablet form. Our BCAA tablets containing three essential muscle building amino acids - leucine, isoleucine and valine - in a proven 2:1:1 ratio. BCAA tablets can help develop and preserve muscle tissue.
Who should use BCAA tablets?
BCAA tablets, such as our BCAA+, are ideal for anyone who is involved in intense training. It doesn't matter whether your goal is to gain lean muscle or lose fat, BCAAs can help by boosting recovery and lean muscle growth, and with minimal calories.
What are branched chain amino acids?
Branched chain amino acid is the term used to refer to the essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. They have a similar structure to one another and all play an important role in the development and preservation of muscle tissue. Of the three branched chain amino acids, leucine appears to be the most important for muscle protein synthesis and can increase it by as much as 33%. It is for this reason that GoNutrition® BCAA+ contain leucine, isoleucine and valine in the heavily researched ratio of 2:1:1.
What are the performance benefits of BCAAs?
BCAAs have a number of performance benefits. They are key to the growth, recovery and repair of muscle tissue, as well as the prevention of muscle tissue breakdown. This is of particular importance during and around intense training, as muscle cells can begin to breakdown.
As branched chain amino acids are metabolised directly in the muscles, the body can also use them as an energy source when required and this can delay the onset of muscular fatigue. Branched chain aminos and in particularly isoleucine have been linked to the replenishment of glycogen stores, meaning that they can have a direct impact on the bodies energy levels, allowing for prolonged physical exertion.
What's included in your BCAA+?
Each three tablet serving of our BCAA+ tablets provides: 750mg of isoleucine, 1500mg of leucine, 750mg of valine and 15mg of vitamin B6 (which is 1071% of your recommended daily allowance).
How should I use BCAA+?
We recommend taking 3-5 BCAA+ tablets 2-4 times a day. You shouldn't exceed this dose. If you're not a fan of tablets, we'd recommend checking out our powdered iBCAA. This BCAA powder is "instantised" so you can add a couple of scoops (about 5g) to a blender bottle and drink it with water, or do as most people do and just bung it in your protein shake. It does, however, have a distinctive taste, which is why some people prefer BCAA tablets instead.
How good are your BCAA+ tablets?
GoNutrition® BCAA+ tablets are developed with by industry leading manufacturers and produced to our exact specifications. This allows us to ensure that our products are consistently produced to the highest standards, with market leading levels of active ingredients and free from any nasties, such as artificial colours and preservatives, salts and sugars.
Once they arrive on site, we quality check and carefully pack the BCAA tablets in-house at our very own production facility, before they are shipped direct to your door. These processes ensure we have full traceability every step of the way. Each batch comes with an official certificate of analysis which is available via the link at the top of the product page.
What goes well with BCAA+?
ZMA zinc and magnesium recovery formula is the ideal support for BCAA+ to further enhance muscular recovery. Creatine Monohydrate also works along side BCAAs to increasing lean muscle mass, size and strength.
