How BCAA Keto (3:1) Works
The Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine, and valine, are important, essential amino acids. The combination of these three amino acids make up approximately 1/3 of skeletal muscle and play an important role in protein synthesis. BCAAs are needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue, appear to preserve muscle glycogen stores and help reduce muscle protein breakdown during exercise.
BCAAs cannot be made by the body. Therefore, they must be obtained through diet and supplementation. BCAAs are vital to athletes as they bypass the liver and are quickly metabolized in the muscled to help speed recovery. BCAAs are also important for athletes as they serve as important fuel sources for skeletal muscle during periods of metabolic stress (exercise).
Alpha Ketoglutarate (AKG) combines with ammonia generated by intense muscle activity to create glutamine, and amino acid important for energy fuel and muscle recovery. AKG helps increase workout performance helping you achieve the results you want from your training.
OL has created BCAA-AKG, an innovative formula that combines these two popular ingredients.
BCAA-AKG is perfect for bodybuilders and powerlifters, or any athlete looking to make gains in muscular size and strength.
Benefits of BCAA Keto (3:1)™
Our formula contains a 3:1 ratio of leucine to both Isoleucine and Valine for maximum effect. Leucine is the most readily oxidized BCAA and therefore the most effective at causing insulin secretion from the pancreas, and stimulating the metabolic pathway.
