Branched Chain Amino Acids have been around the bodybuilding scene for nearly 30 years, and have definitely proved to be one of the best supplements for muscle recovery and now are proving to be excellent for using during training to maintain energy. BCAA’s are the three amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine. They are all known as essential amino acids because your body cannot actually make them so you need a constant supply every day to maintain good health. However one of the key benefits of BCAA’s is their ability to stimulate protein synthesis in skeletal muscle. The other amino acids simply don’t have this capability.
Of the three amino acids, L-Leucine turns out to be the amino acid that primarily stimulates protein synthesis, particularly when the body is subjected to the trauma of hard training. From a technical perspective Leucine is a critical regulator of protein synthesis in muscle tissue through a signalling pathway called Mammalian Target of Rapamycin or mTOR. As concentrations of Leucine increase in your system it signals mTOR that you have enough protein available for muscle synthesis which effectively turns your system anabolic to stimulate protein synthesis. When Leucine levels drop, which usually occurs during and after hard training, protein synthesis is inhibited. It gets quite a bit more technical than this, but what the research is showing is that a higher level of Leucine is the critical factor when considering any BCAA formula for muscle recovery during and after training.
MAX’S have trialled higher level Leucine formulas for some time, finding a 10:1:1 ratio of Leucine to Isoleucine and Valine the most effective. But that’s not the whole story. Standard free form BCAA’s are relatively insoluble, meaning they are quite slow to absorb. To tackle this problem MAX’S upgraded this awesome new formula to include:
Pepform Leucine Peptide – Specific short peptides with high Leucine content have been shown to be taken up through the small intestine wall much faster than free form aminos, giving an immediate Leucine spike to switch on protein synthesis
Micronized and Instantised BCAA’s – These BCAA’s have very small particle sizes and are specially treated to enable faster wetting and absorption
Free Form BCAA’s – traditional BCAA formulas contain medium absorbing aminos. They continue switching on protein synthesis after the faster BCAA’s effects begin to diminish.
MAX’S BCAA 10:1:1 is pure BCAA’s. It contains no sugars, flavours, sweeteners, or other additives, just pure BCAA’s to switch on protein synthesis. We recommend you add it to your protein drinks to enhance their muscle building effect. If you’re hard core you can also take it strait, simply place a dose on your tongue and wash down with a glass of water. 100% advanced BCAA’s for 100% results.
