BCAA (Branched Chains Amino Acids) are branched amino acids: leucine, valine and isoleucine. These compounds are called this because of the extensive lateral chain in their chemical structure. They belong to the group of exogenous amino acids, which are necessary in our diet because our body cannot produce them on its own. They are an integral part of the synthesis of most proteins, and over 30% of our muscles consist of BCAA.
There is no doubt that BCAA plays a fundamental role in our diet, not only in terms of health, but also in terms of building muscle, regeneration after hard training and reduction of body fat. The supply of BCAA should be increased especially in people who train hard. As physical activity increases, the demand for essential amino acids increases.
Leucine - L-leucine - helps to reduce fatigue during fatigue reduction periods. It is considered to be the most important amino acid, stimulating protein synthesis. It supports the structure and strength of our muscles. It acts as an activator of mTOR kinase, the main metabolic pathway in our body, responsible primarily for the increased synthesis of new muscle fibres. Studies indicate that L-leucine increases our insulin sensitivity. It promotes increased transport of ATP - high-energy bonds that provide energy for our body.
Properties OstroVit BCAA 20-1-1
They contribute to the increase of muscle strength
With BCAA, an increase in lipolysis, i.e. an increase in the oxidation of fatty acids, is observed - an ideal supplement for reducing body fat
BCAA supplements reduce post-workout physical and mental fatigue
Many studies unanimously indicate an anti-catabolic effect (it has precipitated the breakdown of proteins in muscle tissue)
The use of BCAA as an energy source - saves us muscle glycogen
Proven action regulating neurotransmitters
RECOMMENDED USE Dissolve a single serving of the product 10.5 g (2 scoops) in 250 ml of water in a shaker. On training days, take one serving a day before or after workout. On non-workout days, take one serving after waking up.
