The Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine and valine are essential amino acids, and thus cannot be made in the body. BCAAs are critical for muscle protein synthesis, and because BCAAs can be used as fuel during intense exercise, BCAA supplementation can help to preserve existing muscle tissue. In addition, BCAAs can support the recovery process by promoting the normal repair processes that take place after exertion. BCAAs also play an important role in the maintenance of proper immune system function and the support of healthy aging.
Spoon Stirred: Add 1½ level teaspoons of BCAA Powder to a glass filled with 8-10 oz. of water or your favorite beverage and mix vigorously with a spoon for about 15-20 seconds. Take 1 to 3 times daily. Can be taken before meals or before and after exercise.
Shaker: Add 1½ level teaspoons of BCAA Powder to your shaker cup filled with 8 oz. of water or your favorite beverage. Cover and shake for about 10 seconds to ensure a good mix. Take 1 to 3 times daily. Can be taken before meals or before and after exercise.
Tip: Try adding BCAA Powder to your favorite protein powder, meal replacement product, or weight-gainer shake.
