Optimum Nutrition Pro BCAA The Branched Chain Amino Acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are valued for their anabolic and anti-catabolic properties. Used in the 2:1:1 ratio before and/or after endurance exercise they may help spare muscle tissue. Used after strength training, BCAAs help kick-start protein synthesis which plays an important role in muscle growth. We included 5 grams of L-Glutamine because this conditionally essential amino acid may help support recovery after intense exercise.
The Branched Chain Amino Acids, so named because of their branched chemical structure, are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds. The Amino Acids in this product have been investigated recently for their potential in preventing muscle breakdown and anabolic effects. This powder mixes readily in water or juice and does not readily clump or settle to the bottom.
