· 2500mg L-Leucine · Ratio 4:1:1 ensures maximum muscle growth· Protects against muscle tissue breakdown during exercise· Provides fuel for muscular energy and enhances endurance· Helps increase nitrogen retention and protein synthesis to build muscle· Activates mTOR signalBCAAs
consist of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine and are commonly referred to as Branched-Chain Amino Acids because of their unique branched chain chemical structure setting them apart from other amino acids.BCAAs
are essential amino acids meaning that they cannot be synthesized by the body but must be supplied through the diet.
The body uses BCAAs
to promote healing of injured tissues, speeding up recovery, and to protect against muscle tissue breakdown during exercise. BCAAs
are also important for developing and building muscles. Studies have shown BCAAs
to be helpful in other areas as well because of what each ingredient does independently. Leucine
is necessary for wound recovery to skin and bones and helps protect muscles; valine
helps promote and maintain nitrogen balance (essential for muscular development); and isoleucine
helps boost energy and is necessary for forming hemoglobin (a protein-based part of red blood cells that transfers oxygen throughout the body).
What makes Starlabs Nutrition®´s BCAA
formula special is the ratio of leucine to isoleucine and valine, which is 4 to 1. Leucine has been identified to be a key regulator of skeleton muscle anabolism and activates mTOR signal for protein synthesis.BCAAs
are one of the oldest and most widely used supplements of all time. They have several functions such as being part of the enzyme and hormonal system, they build DNA and carry oxygen throughout the body. BCAAs are an effective and simple way to ensure maximum muscle recovery, muscle growth and overall athletic performance.
first thing in the morning will also give the muscles a good portion of aminos to use as fuel and for repair after a long night of fasting to help the build up of muscles; before work-out to reduce muscle soreness (DOMS) and after work-out to speed recovery. Working out increases levels of cortisol, but by supplementing with BCAAs
before and after work-out, the cortisol levels will be kept low and will promote greater muscle growth.Directions
