About BCAA Perform Powder

BCAA Perform is the latest addition to the range, offering a convenient way to support the maintenance of muscle mass.

This product contains 6g of BCAA’s (3 g leucine, 1.5 g isoleucine and 1.5 g valine) in a 2:1:1 ratio, with an additional 5g of L-Glutamine and 1.5g of L-Arginine.

B-vitamins may help to support the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, making this product the ideal drink to consume before, during or after exercise.

Suggested Use
Benefits

BCAA’s are three essential amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) meaning that they must be obtained through the diet. The BCAA’s are especially important as they activate (especially leucine) the process of muscle protein synthesis as well as contributing as the building blocks of new proteins formed in the recovery period after exercise. As such, they compromise around a third of the protein within our muscles and therefore help to contribute to the growth of muscle mass. In addition, the BCAAs are also used as energy source during endurance exercise, especially during high-intensity and carbohydrate restricted exercise (i.e. low carb training).

L-Glutamine is the most abundant non-essential amino acid found in muscle tissue. During periods of prolonged and intense exercise, both blood and muscle stores of glutamine can become depleted in the post-exercise recovery period. Glutamine supplementation before and after exercise may therefore improve muscle, immune and gut function.

L-Arginine is a non-essential amino acid that may help increase muscle blood flow to allow the greater delivery of nutrients to the working muscles.

FAQs

What is in BCAA Perform?

  • BCAA Perform contains 6g of branched chain amino acids known as BCAA’s ( 3 g leucine, 1.5 g isoleucine and 1.5 g valine) in a 2:1:1 ratio. The product also includes 5g of L-glutamine and 1.5g of L-Arginine.

Does it have any side-effects?

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


Do I need to take it every day?

  • Amino acids are found naturally in protein rich foods. It can be taken on both off-days and training days. BCAA Perform is especially relevant before, during and after hard training sessions or as a drink consumed with snacks in between main meals


I’m an endurance athlete, will BCAA Perform help me?

  • The BCAAs are also used as energy source during endurance exercise, especially during high-intensity and carbohydrate restricted exercise (i.e. low carb training). Consuming BCAAs prior to such training sessions can help to reduce muscle protein breakdown and stimulate muscle protein synthesis post-exercise, conditions that can facilitate training adaptation.


How many scoops per serving

  • 2 scoops will provide a 15g serving that contains 6 g BCAAs, 5 g L-Glutamine and 1.5 g L-Arginine


Does it mix/shake well?

Correct size scoop, too large scoop in other flavour

Prodotto valido per il recupero, dal sapore molto particolare che contrasta il forte gusto spesso spiacevole degli ammiinoacidi.
