Met-Rx Timed-Release BCAA
If you're stuck in a rut with your diet and supplement regimen, then maybe it's time to branch out to Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). While these amino acids are not new to the supplement scene, they have been steadily climbing the ranks of must-have supplements. Composed of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine; these aminos form the perfect trifecta for bodybuilders and athletes.
Of the 20 amino acids that our body's use for muscle and other important tissues, BCAAs may be the most important of all. As indicated by their name, they have a unique configuration that results in a branched structure not seen in other aminos. Also, unlike other amino acids, they are primarily broken down in muscle as opposed to the liver.* The ability of muscles to directly breakdown BCAAs means they can serve as an alternative source of muscle fuel, especially during extended exercise when carbohydrate stores may start to dwindle.
MET-Rx has taken BCAAs to the next level by designing a timed-release formula. This 6 hour formula means you can take pre-workout and still receive nitrogen support well into your post-workout phase. This specialized formula also crams in more of the essential BCAAs you need per pill than our original formula.
