BCAA Gainz is a perfect blend of BCAAs, in the ideal ratio (2:1:1), and L-Glutamine for enhancing muscle growth and recovery so you can make more Gainz! Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) consist of three (out of nine) essential amino acids, i.e., Leucine, Valine, and Isoleucine. BCAAs are most abundant in muscles and directly influence your muscles as they enhance muscle growth and repair, reduce muscle breakdown during exercise, decrease exercise-induced fatigue, and regulate blood sugar levels. They broke down in the brain and muscles; that's why they produce energy during exercise to improve your exercise performance. BCAA Gainz contains the best combination of L-Glutamine to support muscle growth, exercise performance, recovery, and reduce muscle soreness and fatigue after intense exercise. Vitamin B6 has also been added in BCAA Gainz to increase energy, reduce inflammation, and regulate your moods. If you are not getting enough BCAA's through your diet, then taking our BCAA Gainz would be an excellent addition to your diet.
Health Benefits of BCAAs
The main health benefits of BCAAs are as follows:
Helps Enhance Muscle Growth
BCAAs are known for their muscle growth abilities. Leucine activates a specific pathway in the body that makes muscle protein. In one study, people consumed 5.6 g of BCAAs after their exercise and had a 22% increase in muscle protein synthesis compared to another group. But another study showed that whey protein powder contains all essential amino acids, and people who consumed whey protein shakes had a 50% greater increase in muscle protein synthesis.
Helps Improve Exercise Performance
BCAAs are found in a considerable amount in the body's total amino acid ratio. They are around 35-40% in the body, while 14-18% in the muscles. They are oxidized in the brain and muscles, while other amino acids are broken down in the liver. Because of this, they help produce energy during exercise and regulate blood sugar levels.
Helps Reduce Muscle Soreness
People starting a new exercise routine generally experience delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), in which they feel sore for a day or two. Several studies have shown that BCAAs can help reduce muscle damage and decreased levels of creatine kinase (an indicator of muscle breakdown), reducing the severity and duration of DOMS.
Helps Decrease Exercise Fatigue
BCAAs can help decrease exercise-induced fatigue by reducing serotonin production in the brain. During exercise, the muscles use BCAAs, and their levels decrease in the blood. Thus, the levels of tryptophan (essential amino acid) increase in the brain and are converted to serotonin. Serotonin is a brain chemical that is the main contributor to exercise fatigue.
Helps Reduce Muscle Breakdown
There is a balance between the synthesis of muscle protein and breakdown or wasting of muscle protein, which determines the muscles' protein. Due to several reasons like chronic infections, fasting, cancer, and aging (a natural process), muscle wasting can overwhelm muscle protein synthesis. In those conditions, BCAAs may help to stop muscle breakdown.
Health Benefits of L-Glutamine
L-Glutamine is essential to sustain muscle protein and the primary fuel source for your immune system. Several studies revealed that glutamine supplements might help support muscle gain, fat burn and improve exercise performance. It may also help reduce muscle soreness, enhance recovery, and reduce blood markers of fatigue after intense exercise.
Health Benefits of Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 helps convert the food (proteins, fats, carbs) you eat into energy and the synthesis of red blood cells. It is a water-soluble vitamin that you must take through diet or supplements. It helps make neurotransmitters that control your mood and emotions, including dopamine, serotonin, and gamma-aminobutyric acid. It may also help reduce inflammation in joints.
How to Use:
Mix half a scoop (6.5 g) in 8 – 10 ounces of cold beverage and drink preferably before, during, or after your workout or between meals.
WARNING: You should use BCAA Gainz after seeking your health care professional's advice, especially if you are on medication or have a medical condition. It would be better to stop using BCAA Gainz if you are pregnant or nursing.
