Natural BCAA Benefits

BCAA: Discover the Benefits of This Amazing Supplement

Preserve muscle while dieting down, prevent catabolism, and enhance muscular recovery and endurance!

 

Branched chain amino acids have been one of the most popular sports supplements over recent years and for a slew of great reasons. There is more research providing evidence that supports the use of BCAA than almost any other supplements on the market.

BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids Explained)

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) consist of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. The reason that these amino acids are considered “essential” is because the body can’t make them, so they must be consumed through food or supplements. Whey Protein, Chicken, Beef, Fish, and Eggs have the highest BCAA content in any sources of foods but there are still many added benefits to supplementing additional BCAA at the correct times. Instantized BCAA bypass the liver and gut and are transported directly into your bloodstream, allowing them to rapidly scathe off catabolism and boost muscle growth and recovery almost instantly.

BCAA Benefits And Reasons Why They Maximize Muscle Growth and Prevent Muscle Breakdown

Supplementing with BCAA can provide so many benefits, such as:

  1. Enhanced Workouts and Muscular Endurance
  2. Increased Protein Synthesis
  3. Help Prevent Protein Breakdown

Enhanced Workout and Muscular Endurance

BCAA helps fuel your workouts for several reasons. Branched chain amino acids compete with the amino acid tryptophan for entry into the brain, where tryptophan can be converted to the neurotransmitter serotonin. Competing with tryptophan and reducing the intra workout serotonin spike allows you to workout harder, longer, minimize muscle breakdown, and ultimately leads to rapidly enhancing your progress and recovery.

Increased Protein Synthesis

BCAA stimulate muscle protein synthesis debatably even more so than when you consume protein from a whole foods source. Leucine, in particular, is an anabolic trigger and when consumed in the BCAA form, rapidly switches your body into a muscle building, rather than a muscle burning state.

Help Prevent Protein Breakdown

When your body senses large amounts of BCAA in the bloodstream, it rapidly reduces the rate of protein breakdown. BCAA have this effect by decreasing the activity of the protein breakdown pathway and by decreasing the expression of several complexes involved in protein breakdown. Enhancing Protein Synthesis and decreasing muscle tissue breakdown is a sure way to help maintain muscle while dieting and rapidly increase muscle and recovery while in a caloric surplus.

When Is The Best Time To Consume BCAA and Why?

The ideal time to consume these are during the “peri-workout period” (before, during, and after your workout). BCAA’s, particular leucine, is an anabolic trigger that helps prevent catabolism and allows you to burn BCAA for fuel, rather than breaking down muscles. This is especially useful when the body is low on blood glycogen levels (carbohydrate stores) and would be turning to muscles for energy. Having an adequate amount of BCAA in the bloodstream tells the body to burn those off before considering tapping into your hard earned muscle.

BCAA Dosage

The standard dosage for leucine is between 2-10 grams per day and standard dosage for isoleucine and valine is between 3-10 grams per day. This equates to approximately 5-20g of BCAA for optimal results. We recommend taking at least 5g before, 5g during, and 5g immediately post workout (or consume a protein shake that contains them) to optimize muscle growth and enhance muscle endurance.  

Final Thoughts And Recommendations

It doesn’t matter if your goal is building muscle, trimming down, or enhancing workout performance. Branched Chain Amino Acids have a slew of benefits that can help you with all of these goals simultaneously.   We always recommend having a sound diet of whole foods containing large amounts of protein, whether it is coming from plants or meat. Supplementing with 5g of BCAA before, during, and immediately after your workout has tremendous benefits that will dramatically improve your performance in the gym and body composition faster than you previously thought was possible.

 

Unfortunately, over 90% of the BCAA products on the market are extracted from duck feathers, human hair, or even animal furs! We find this absolutely unacceptable and Inno Supps “Natural BCAA” contain an entire 5g of BCAA 100% Vegan BCAA Instaminos extracted from sunflowers, an additional 2g of plant-based EAA (essential amino acids), 2.5g of glutamine to enhance recovery, and added coconut water powder for advanced hydration. We believe that this product is superior to any other Amino formulas on the market and recommend taking 1 scoop before, 1 scoop during, and 1 scoop after each workout. This natural supplement regimen will increase protein synthesis and keep you in a muscle building state, improve body composition, and dramatically enhance performance in the gym as well as recovery.
