Branch Chain – Amino Acid
Nutritech BCAA 4000 has been specifically formulated to help maintain muscle tissue and preserve glycogen stores in the muscle. The muscle building effects of protein are primarily attributed to Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) which have anabolic and anti-catabolic properties.
Supplementing BCAAs before training has been shown to effectively suppress muscle tissue breakdown, damage and soreness after training. BCAAs not only increase the rate of protein synthesis, but also increase the cell’s capacity for protein synthesis, reducing the rate of protein breakdown. BCAAs are naturally occurring elements, found in high concentrations in salmon, cashew nuts, milk, grains, etc.
