BCAA stands for Branched-chain amino acids, which are the essential amino acids: L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine. Those three comprise around 35% of your body’s muscle protein. BCAAs play a critical role in muscle development because they are metabolized in the muscle, rather than the liver. That is beneficial because it could fuel directly your muscles with glycogen while you work out, helping you to keep going. Moreover BCAAs stimulate the rate of protein synthesis, which is particularly helpful in boosting muscle gains, while they also aid in muscle tissue recovery and repair.
L-leucine has many novel anabolic properties because not only it stimulates muscle protein synthesis, but it has also been suggested to slow down muscle damage after intense training. L-Leucine is the strongest of the three Branched-chain amino acids in terms of its ability to induce muscle protein synthesis. LGN’s BCAA contains 4 g of L-leucine per serving, which is the perfect amount to help you build strong, lean muscle.
L-isoleucine assists with regulation of blood sugar levels as well as energy levels because of its ability to increase glucose uptake into muscle cells. Isoleucine supports stable energy levels, helping you to improve your athletic performance and recovery after exercise as well.
L-Valine supports the metabolism of energy (by supplying energy to muscles from glucose creation), keeping your body efficient during intense physical activity and repairing muscle tissue after exercise.
Add 1 serving (1 scoop) to 200ml of water, shake and consume immediately.
We recommend 2-3 servings daily. For optimal use take between meals, 30-40 minutes before workout and immediately after workout. (Perfect for adding to your protein shake.)
