What is BCAA 4:1:1?
Branched-chain amino acids are the three essential amino Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. This blend has been formulated by our in house nutritionist to provide an advance dose of Leucine, arguably the most important amino acid for the preservation, growth, and repair of muscle tissue. As with any essential amino acid, it is necessary to consume BCAAs through the diet as the human body is unable to synthesize them. Conveniently, this blends supplies 3.33g of Leucine, 825mg of Isoleucine and 825mg of Valine per 5g serving in the unflavoured version.
What are the performance benefits of BCAAs?
BCAAs have a number of performance benefits beyond promoting the growth and maintenance of muscle tissue. They are metabolized directly in the skeletal muscle and have been shown to regulate muscle protein synthesis and muscle recovery. This is particularly important during intense exercise as muscle cells can begin to break down, supplementing with BCAAs before and during exercise has been shown to suppress this process. In addition, BCAAs can be used as a source of energy during exercise, which is another one of the many reasons why they are such a popular ingredient in intra workout drinks.
Sounds great! So, what's the advantage of extra Leucine?
Leucine is arguably the most important amino acid for muscle growth and development. It activates the cellular signalling pathway known as mTOR in the muscle which encourages muscular protein synthesis, studies have shown that a dose of 2.8g leucine along with other essential amino acids is sufficient. iBCAA 4:1:1 provides 3.3g of leucine on an unflavoured basis and 2.82g of leucine in flavoured varieties, making it the perfect addition to your supplement stack for lean muscle gains.
How are BCAAs instantised?
Our BCAAs are instantiated with a tiny amount of soy lecithin to make them fully dispersible in water. This makes them much easier to drink and absolutely ideal for adding to pre/intra/post-workout shakes. Whilst some people have an aversion to using soy because they feel it may impact on testosterone levels, this is based on old studies which have since been disproven.
Who should use this supplement?
Branched Chain Amino Acids have been found to be effective at maintaining lean muscle and promoting protein synthesis in active individuals of all ages. We would recommend using this supplement to anyone looking to increase their intake of BCAAs.
What goes well with iBCAA 4:1:1?
iBCAA 4:1:1 can be used to make your own pre-workout and intra workout shake. Some good supplements to combine this with are Taurine to increase muscular 'pump' during exercise, Beta-Alanine to increase muscular endurance and Creatine Monohydrate to increase muscular power.
