The Branched Chain Amino Acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine & L-Valine comprise 35% of the amino acids that form muscle. They are metabolized, for the most part, in muscle tissue and used as an energy source for your muscles during exercise.
BCAA's have also been long studied for protein synthesis. But, more recently scientists have discovered that L-Leucine also serves as a regulator that activates protein synthesis through the mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin). When you exercise, protein degradation occurs causing muscle damage. Ingesting BCAA before exercise or after exercise has shown to significantly inhibit tissue damage.
Therefore, if you are an athlete, you really need BCAA's!
Absolutely not. Unfortunately, many are cheap, synthetic versions that are not water soluble and merely float on the surface of beverages they are mixed with. They have also been shown to degrade after being subjected to acids.
1. Conventional BCAA’s are not stable in lower pH (acidic) conditions, thus degrade and become less effctive.
2. BCAA’s are not water soluble in fluids which is an important limiting factor of the amount that can possibly cross the intestinal wall into the blood stream.
As you can see, the patented (EP2298090) technology behind AminoZorb® BCAA makes it completely stable in solution and water soluble. For athletes who demand the very best, it’s the obvious choice.
