Description

Amino acids are important organic molecules for the body's proper use of vitamins and minerals. In addition, amino acids are the basic units that make up proteins. The variety of existing proteins depends on the type and sequence of amino acids that make them up.

The amino acids that the body uses to perform its functions are more or less twenty and, of these, eight are defined as essential, because our body cannot synthesise them autonomously and we have to take them through food.

Leucine, valine and isoleucine are branched essential amino acids, also known as BCAA (branched-chain amino acids). BCAAs are stored at in muscle tissue, which can use them to increase muscle mass, increase strength or quickly gain energy:

  • leucine is essential for the synthesis of muscle proteins, therefore it is involved in the growth of muscle tissue and recovery after exercise
  • isoleucinehas an energy and muscle building function
  • valine is an amino acid with an energetic function and limits muscle breakdown

BCAAs make up the largest share of amino acids in muscle protein (more than 25%), they are the first amino acids that are catabolised during intense exercise and participate in the synthesis of other amino acids in muscle, helping to define the structure of muscle fibres. In addition, branched amino acids support resistance and hinder fatigue.

For these reasons, BCAA supplements such as BCAA+ 4:1:1 can be taken by all those who practice intense and/or prolonged physical activity such as pre- or post-workout, in the gym or other contexts, to rapidly increase energy levels, counteract muscle catabolism and fatigue and improve recovery.
The high quantity of leucine (4 times higher than the other two BCAAs) makes the product particularly useful for supporting protein synthesis in the muscle.

Use

Take 4 tablets per day, with water.
