Each serving of ultra-micronized BCAA provides the three free form branched chain amino acids; L-Luecine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine in the proper 2:1:1 ratio (2.5g L-Leucine, 1.25g L-Valine, and 1.25g L-Isoleucine). Muscle tissues are comprised of two proteins, actin and myosin. The main components of the two proteins are Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, which are called branched-chain amino acid (BCAAs) for their molecular structures. BCAAs accounts for about 35% of the essential amino acids contained in myoproteins. Replenishment of BCAAs increases the raw materials for muscle tissues, contributing to muscle building. BCAAs make up one-third of muscle protein. During intense exercise the BCAAs are expended from muscle tissue at a rapid rate, leading to increased muscle tissue breakdown. BCAA is a high potency formula with a specific ratio of branched chain amino acids designed to enhance absorption and muscle tissue recovery. Amino acids play a vital role in muscle growth and recuperation, weight management and many other important bodily functions. BCAAs are metabolized directly in the muscle and are especially useful to athletes because they may improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acid groups for repair and rebuilding.
Suggested dose for BCAA generally ranges from 5 to 20 grams per day. Most performance athletes take between 10 and 20 grams per day. Mix 1 serving (5 grams) with water or your favorite beverage. For best results take 2-4 daily, evenly spaced throughout the day.
