BCAA With Glutamine and B Vitamins Chicago Health 11.65 oz

$ 41.99

Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are three essential amino acids with a unique branched-chain structure. The BCAAs are the only amino acids used by the mitochondria to produce energy (Haas & Mela-Riker). They comprise about one-third of the protein content of muscle tissue and are used preferentially by muscle tissue for energy production. Unlike most amino acids, BCAAs are predominantly metabolized in muscles and not the liver.* Our BCAA 1,000 mg product has a formulation with a balanced blend of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, that’s synergized with Vitamins B1, B3, B5 and glutamine for enhanced utilization. When taken during training or physical activity, BCAAs may decrease muscle soreness and the sensation of fatigue.*


Features:
• Free of hormones, steroids and artificial stimulants
• Contains a 2:1:1 blend of the three branched chain amino acids: L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine
• Optimized with L-Glutamine, B1, B3 and B5
• Gluten free
• Vegetarian Capsules


Benefits:
• Provides the three branched chain amino acids that are used preferentially by skeletal muscle for energy. *
• Provides leucine, which is completely oxidized for energy in muscle. *
• Leucine promotes protein synthesis in skeletal muscle as well as helps to balance blood sugars because it produces energy.*
• Isoleucine can help reduce the harmful effects of stress on the body while contributing to the biochemical process that gives energy.*
• Valine assists in protein metabolism and supports lean muscle mass building and muscle repair.*
• Supplementation with BCAAs has been shown to decrease exercise-induced muscle protein breakdown, increase protein synthesis and enhance post-exercise muscle recovery.*
• Vitamin B1, thiamin, may enhance circulation, helps with blood formation and the metabolism of carbohydrates. It also may help with the conversion of nutrients to energy.*
• Vitamin B3, niacin, is required for cell respiration, helps in the release of energy and metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, proper circulation and healthy skin, functioning of the nervous system, and normal secretion of bile and stomach fluids.*
• Vitamin B5, pantothenic acid, is used in the release of energy, red blood cell manufacturing, as well as the metabolism of fat, protein and carbohydrates.*
• Glutamine is an amino acid that aids muscle growth by increasing levels of leucine in muscle fibers, inhibiting breakdown and encouraging muscles to store more glycogen, which makes them larger due to the water that glycogen holds. It also is an anti-catabolic agent.*
