  • • In a ratio of 2:1:1
  • • An additional 500mg of Arginine, Vitamins B6 and B12 and Folic Acid

Product Uses
Recommended Usage

Consume 1 BCAA Shot either before fasted training or early into long-endurance sessions. Do not exceed more than 2 shots per day.

Benefits

The Science in Sport BCAA shot has been formulated to support endurance athletes. It has been well documented that exercise increase the process of protein breakdown and replacing protein guards against this catabolic effect. Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and BCAAs are the building blocks of protein. BCAAs consumed in “free form” require minimal digestion and are rapidly absorbed into the blood stream

FAQ's

What is in BCAA Shot?

BCAA Shot contains 4g of branched chain amino acids known as BCAA’s (2g leucine, 1g isoleucine and 1g valine) in a 2:1:1 ratio. The product also includes 500mg of arginine, vitamins B6 and B12 and folic acid.

 

What are BCAAs?

BCAA’s are three essential amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) meaning that they must be obtained through the diet. BCAAs are also used as energy source during endurance exercise, especially during high-intensity and carbohydrate restricted exercise (i.e. low carb training).

 

What is Arginine?

Arginine is a non-essential amino acid that works in synergy with BCAA’s.

 

Does it have any side effects?

There are no reported side effects of amino acid supplementation, but do not exceed the recommended dose.

 

Does it contain any stimulants?

Typically, pre-workout supplements or shots include a stimulant (caffeine/taurine). The BCAA Shot does not contain any stimulates, so offers an on-the-go solution for athletes who don’t want these stimulants.

 

I’m an Endurance Athlete, will BCAA Shot help me?

The BCAAs are used as an energy source during endurance exercise and low carbohydrate availability sessions (i.e. fasted training). BCAAs are the building blocks of protein and consuming protein contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass and reduces the detrimental effects of muscle protein breakdown.

 

When should I take the BCAA Shot?

Take one BCAA shot before fasted training sessions or early into long endurance sessions. Do not exceed two BCAA Shots per day.

Quite sharp. I had it during a workout, but wish I'd had it straight out of the fridge. Still a lot nicer than the grapefruit one
