BCAA Ultra 5:1:1 is engineered using the finest branched chain amino acids on the market today. Whilst most BCAA supplements on the market contain Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine in a 2:1:1 ratio, the ground-breaking BCAA Ultra 5:1:1 is formulated with a far higher ratio of Leucine. It is ideal to take post training with a quick absorbing protein.
BCAA Ultra 5:1:1 tablets are unrivalled in terms of their ability to help activate the body's mTOR pathway, help induce protein synthesis and promote the repair and regrowth of new muscle tissue. It has been designed for high performance athletes looking for the ultimate BCAA supplement.
Branch Chain Amino Acids, or BCAA's for short, are a group of essential amino acids that are hugely popular in sports nutrition due to their ability to help promote muscle growth, improve endurance and enhance recovery. BCAA's consist of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine and when taken pre workout have been shown to help prevent muscle breakdown and promote a more positive muscle building environment within the muscle.
When taken post workout they have also been found to help enhance the entire recovery process and the rate at which the muscles repair and regrow. Whilst most BCAA products on the market contain Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine in a 2:1:1 ratio, sports scientists believe for high performance and more experienced strength athletes, a 5:1:1 ratio with higher leucine is better. This is largely due to years of research indicating that leucine can have a positive effect on the muscle building mechanism known as the mTOR pathway.
BCAA Ultra 5:1:1 is an essential supplement post workout for any strength athletes wanting optimal muscle recovery, repair and regrowth. This is because research shows resistance training provides the necessary stimulus for new muscle tissue growth, however the initial bout of exercise actually results in a negative net protein balance or simply muscle breakdown. This negative net protein balance must be counteracted as soon as possible straight after your workout if you want to start building muscle.
This is where BCAA Ultra 5:1:1 supplementation can help as it can help counteract the negative net protein balance and stimulate protein synthesis and new muscle growth following training. Post workout, it is important to ingest a quick absorbing protein such as whey concentrate with a BCAA supplement that's notably high in leucine.
Protein synthesis is simply the process by which the muscles use protein to repair and regrow. It's activated by the body's mTOR pathway which is a powerful muscle building mechanism that signals there is sufficient protein to start repairing and regrowing the muscles. Studies show this is triggered when enough leucine is present in the body. This is why supplementing with BCAA Ultra 5:1:1 alongside a high protein diet has been shown to help encourage muscle regrowth.
