Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000 CapsulesOptimum Nutrition
BCAA 1000 contains a potent balance of Branch Chain Amino Acids which are building blocks of muscle mass and size. Metabolized directly in the muscle, BCAAs, may improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acid groups for repair and rebuilding. The Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's), so named because of their unique branched chemical structure, are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds. In recent times, these amino acids have been investigated for their potential anticatabolic (preventing muscle breakdown) and anabolic (muscle building) effects.
These BCAA 1000 Caps deliver a pure blend of 1,000 mg (1 g) of BCAAs to top up your daily intake.
What Do They Do?
Muscle is actually broken down during your workout. After training, your body uses protein to repair the muscle fibres.
Each serving of BCAA 1000 Caps releases a 1,000 mg of the three Branched Chain Amino Acids (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine) in a precise 2:1:1 ratio. BCAAs are described as essential as the body cannot make them from other compounds.
When Is The Best Time To Take?
BCAA 1000 Caps are recommended first thing in the morning and/or during the 30 minutes just before or immediately after training. Simply take 2 capsules with your favourite beverage, or with your ON protein shake.
