BCAA’s: The essential branch chain amino acids (BCAA’s) leucine, isoleucine, and valine make up one third of muscle protein in the body (1). BCAA’s are essential for numerous physiological processes in the human body, including maintenance of muscle protein reserves, preservation of muscle glycogen stores and prevention of muscle protein breakdown during exercise (1, 2). They are of special importance to athletes as they are metabolized in the muscle, rather than in the liver (3). This means they can be taken up by muscle cells and be completely oxidized to provide a direct energy source for working muscles. BCAA’s are often used as a supplement for increased athletic performance. Research strongly indicates that BCAA’s, and leucine in particular, directly stimulate protein synthesis (1, 2). BCAA levels drop significantly following strenuous physical activity and training. Consumption of BCAA, in combination with strenuous exercise, is important as it provides nutritional support for muscle building. Studies have shown that BCAA supplementation may increase exercise efficiency (4), increase endurance (6, 7) aid muscle recovery and decrease muscle damage (5, 8). Furthermore, low BCAA plasma levels are associated with increased fatigue and decreased physical performance (1). It should be noted that essential amino acids are not produced in the body so must be obtained through proper nutrition and supplementation.
AMINO BCAA FUEL contains in each serve therapeutic doses of five beneficial amino acids – Glycine, Beta Alanine, Taurine, Arginine and Glutamine. Each of these amino’s can aid your performance during a workout in their own individual way.
Beta Alanine: In various human studies, beta-alanine supplementation has been shown to increase exercise performance, including increased time to exhaustion (9), peak power output during a sprint (10), training amounts for the bench press exercise (11), increase in the total number of repetitions performed and change in mean power (12), as well as fatigue threshold and physical working capacity at neuromuscular fatigue threshold (9, 13, 14). The positive effect Beta Alanine has on exercise performance may be due to the effect beta-alanine has on muscle carnosine levels in all fiber types (15, 16, 17, 18), helping to buffer the muscle from pH changes due to lactic acid production, or it may be due to improved lean body mass (19).
Taurine: is an amino acid like compound that is commonly used to reduce fatigue and aid endurance. Taurine may also be a free-radical scavenger, providing antioxidant effects (20).
Arginine: is an amino acid used for protein synthesis by the body. It is also a precursor to the vasodilator nitric oxide. Arginine supplementation may reduce lactate and ammonia levels, which are normally increased with exercise (24). Arginine is commonly used by athletes to aid exercise performance.
L-Glutamine: is an amino acid found in high levels in the body, mainly in skeletal muscle (21). The functions of Glutamine in the body include acid-base balance, nitrogen supply and protein synthesis. Glutamine is commonly used to as an ergogenic aid for exercise performance enhancement. It is used to improve muscle function, decrease fatigue and improve recovery in athletes participating in strenuous activity (22).
Glycine: is an amino acid that has an active role in many of the body’s functions. It is involved in the manufacture of creatine in the body and it aids in the building of body mass as a result. Glycine is also involved in the production of energy in the body. It is found in muscles and connective tissue.
Furthermore, the addition of electrolytes to AMINO BCAA FUEL may aid in electrolyte replacement and stimulate the thirst mechanism so as to facilitate complete rehydration (23).
So what does all this mean? After AMINO BCAA FUEL is digested, these individual ingredients can either be used to provide a direct energy source for working muscles or be used for protein synthesis during recovery. This is what an athlete requires for muscle building. But AMINO BCAA FUEL is not just for bodybuilders. It’s designed to assist anyone looking to reduce fatigue so they can maintain peak performance for longer during a workout and enhance their recovery. It is beneficial in both anaerobic and endurance sports. Many of our sponsored athletes have reported a substantial decrease in post exercise muscle soreness after introducing AMINO BCAA FUEL to their supplement stack. And remember, enhanced recovery enables more frequent training for better and faster results.
And as if all of that is not enough, AMINO BCAA FUEL is Informed-Sport certified. This is the best standard in supplement quality control out there, as it requires every batch of AMINO BCAA FUEL to be tested before release to market. This means every batch of AMINO BCAA FUEL is tested in the LGC Sport Science laboratory in Cambridge, UK, for over 146 substances listed on the WADA and other prohibited substances lists before it is released for sale or made available to an athlete or team.
Now do you understand why AMINO BCAA FUEL is your perfect workout companion? This synergist blend of amino acids, BCAA’s, electrolytes and vitamins is formulated to give results. So if you are looking for a high quality supplement to provide the sustained fuel you need for an intense workout, plus the nutrients you need for protein synthesis during recovery, and at the same time promoting hydration, then try AMINO BCAA FUEL. Great tasting and very low in calories, fat and sugar, AMINO BCAA FUEL is the perfect addition to your training regime and has a recommended dose of 1 x 9g serve per day.
