INSTANT XTREME BCAA+ is a powdered branched chain amino acids dietary supplement enriched with B vitamins; it is particularly suitable for athletes who perform intense and prolonged physical activities. The product provides 5 grams of BCAAs per serving, in the advanced 8:1:1 ratio (leucine: isoleucine: valine). B vitamins contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism (Vitamin B1, Vitamin B12) as well as amino acid synthesis and protein metabolism to counteract tiredness and fatigue (Vitamin B2); in addition, folic acid and vitamin B6 also contribute to normal amino acid synthesis and to normal protein metabolism, respectively. Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), whose name refers to its unique “branched” chemical structure, are essential nutrients that the body obtains from proteins found in food, especially meat, dairy products, and legumes. They are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds and so they must be introduced from outside sources and other supplementation. They include leucine, isoleucine, and valine. XTREME INSTANT BCAA+ contains a specific balance of these branched chain amino acids, which are building blocks of muscle mass and size. Whey often used in the field of medicine, BCAAs are of critical importance for athletes as they improve exercise performance and reduce protein and muscle breakdown during intense exercise. Metabolized directly in the muscle, BCAAs, may improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acid groups for repair and rebuilding. Recently, these amino acids have been investigated for their potential anticatabolic (preventing muscle breakdown) and anabolic (muscle building) effects. LEUCINE: With 4 grams of leucine per serving, it’s the perfect amount of one of the essential amino acid powerhouses to help induce muscle growth. Leucine not only has the capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, but it also has been suggested to slow muscle damage after intense training by increasing the synthesis of muscle proteins. This essential amino acid, which cannot be synthesized by the human body, is also important for muscle growth and resistance, stimulates protein synthesis and supports metabolism during fasting periods (ketogenic activity). From a chemical point of view it is an apolar amino acid with a branched structure (its side chain is a isobutyl), widely used by resistance athletes for recovery, to minimize muscle losses (catabolism) and the perception of fatigue, and to increase tolerance to lactic acid. ISOLEUCINE: With 0,50 grams of isoleucine, this glycogenic amino acid creates the glucose your body burns for energy. VALINE: 0,50 grams of valine encourage protein synthesis and muscle tissue growth while providing energy from glucose creation. It also acts as a facilitator for normal growth and a reparative agent for various tissues in the body. Finally, the added B vitamins contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue (thiamine) and to normal energy-yielding metabolism (vitamins B6 and B1).
