BCAA 2200 benefits
BCAA 2200 are especially important for bodybuilders since they comprise a large percentage of the amino acid composition of muscle.
BCAAs are also the only aminos that are directly metabolized in the muscle as opposed to the liver.
Provides dual benefits since BCAAs can be used to build protein or broken down in muscle to supply a direct source of energy.**
BCAAs provide muscle nitrogen support for a variety of metabolic functions, which can be especially important during heavy training.**
Enhanced with high potency Vitamin B-6, which plays an essential role in BCAA metabolism for optimal usage.**
BCAA stands for branched chain amino acids
Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are very popular within the fitness industry as of late. They are often taken as a standalone powder, or tablet, whilst they are also a key ingredient in many pre-workouts formulas.
BCAAs are considered the perfect supplement for people looking to put on mass, but more so people who are looking to cut down and shred some body fat whilst maintaining as much muscle as possible.
How Do BCAA 2200 Work?
When you are cutting calories, your body will be in a catabolic state. This means that your body will be breaking down tissue (fat, some muscle etc.) rather than making it (which is known as being anabolic.)
Muscle loss will occur when cutting since your body opts to use the amino acids which would have otherwise been utilised for protein synthesis (to build muscle) as an energy source.
It is generally important to understand how this building muscle business works…
To build muscle, your body’s rate of protein synthesis must be greater than the rate of protein breakdown. When it is the other way round, muscle loss occurs, and when they are equal your muscle mass remains the same.
So how do we get around this?…
BCAA 2200 increase the rate of protein synthesis
BCAAs (such as leucine) stimulate protein synthesis more so than regular dietary protein because they have already been broken down into the necessary amino acids that your body requires to carry out the reaction. Therefore the rate of protein synthesis increases, in addition to the amount of protein synthesis any one particular cell can carry out. This is a prominent explanation for how BCAAs can help maximise muscle recovery. Muscle repair = more muscle growth!
BCAA 2200 reduce the amount of protein breakdown
This occurs by reducing the amount of bases that are released which signal to break-down protein. If you consider this in addition to our previous point, and the general formula for building muscle, it is easier to understand how BCAAs increase protein synthesis, and reduce protein breakdown, which in turn leads to more muscle being built.
If all that on building more muscle wasn’t enough to convince you. They also have several other benefits which will help you with your fitness goals.
✓ BCAA supplements can help to reduce tiredness, which can significantly boost your workout. This is one of the key reasons which they are recommended to take before your workout – and the main reason it is included in pre-workouts such as MYPRE.
They do this by inhibiting the production of serotonin, which often rises during exercise. Serotonin increases the ‘perception of fatigue’ which means you will tire more during your workouts. If you haven’t already worked it out, BCAAs will prevent this from occurring, giving you more energy. Therefore you can work out for longer, push harder and lift even more weight!
✓ Furthermore, they have been shown to reduce muscle soreness, meaning you can push even harder the days following intense exercise.
