BCAAS - Branched-chain Amino Acids
Branched-chain amino acids supplements, commonly referred to as BCAA's, are very popular with athletes who are searching for ways to increase lean muscle and improve performance. BCAA's work to increase lean muscle and strength while also reducing muscle fatigue and speeding muscle recovery time. The body contains 20 amino acids, only 3 of those are what makes BCAA - Valine, Leucine, and Iso-leucine. These are the key amino acids that stimulate protein synthesis and help regulate protein metabolism. BCAA's can move through the blood to the brain and decrease the production of serotonin in the brain's interior, thereby lowering mental fatigue. The body uses BCAAs to help muscles recover. BCAAs drive nutrients to the muscle tissue, allowing for improved workout recovery. In the muscle, BCAAs serve as an energy source during exercise, so taking a supplement can help restore the same nutrients lost during intense exercise. BCAA also reduces pain from muscle fatigue and improves recovery.
BCAAs also improve strength and endurance by keeping your muscles fueled at the cellular level which is why it is very popular for long-distance running, high cardio workouts, swimmers, and other high intensity strenuous exercises or prolonged workouts. When you are training to develop a stronger, more powerful body, it is essential to stimulate and fuel your muscles at the cellular level.
Creatine is a natural substance produced in our muscle cells, in the skeletal muscle tissue where approximately 95% of the body's creatine supply is stored. This natural occurring metabolite has been reproduced as creatine monohydrate for fitness supplement purposes. It's used for cellular energy production and modulation.
Benefits of creatine include:
- Increase high-intensity workout performance
- Increased muscle cell volume
- Faster post-workout recovery
- Increased glycogen storage
Athletes typically prefer creatine when weight training and bodybuilding because of the rapid pace at which muscle mass is built. It's easy to stop taking creatine because it's naturally produced in the body. When an athlete stops taking this supplement, the creatine levels in the body return to normal levels in about a month.
Recommended Dosing: 5-10 grams. Take half of your daily serving with your pre-workout supplement and the second half of your daily serving with your post-workout supplement.
Pre-Workout Formulas are designed to be taken prior to your workout so that you experience increased energy, focus and stamina. Pre-Workout Formula is great for breaking through plateaus in your training, or regaining momentum and intensity after a break from training.
