Nutrakey BCAA Optima - Ultra Pure Recovery Complex

Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA)

Branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) is the name given to three of the eight essential amino acids needed to make protein: leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are called branched-chain because their structure has a ‘branch’ off the main trunk of the molecule. The combination of these three essential amino acids makes up approximately one-third of skeletal muscle in the human body. The body cannot produce BCAA’s on its own, but must obtain through diet or supplementation. In order to get energy, the body can actually break down muscle in order to obtain BCAAs. By supplementing BCAAs during and after your workout, you can help prevent muscle tissue breakdown, which occurs as a natural part of metabolism.

Almost 1/3 of muscle tissue is composed of BCAA

This is essential for muscle repair, the maintenance of muscle tissue, and to preserve muscle stores of glycogen. BCAA supplementation may activate the main muscle growth pathway in muscle tissue which may increase protein synthesis and help prevent muscle tissue breakdown after strenuous exercise. Each serving of NutraKey ultra-micronized BCAA provides the three free form branched chain amino acids; L-Luecine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine in the proper 2:1:1 ratio and is available in either pure powder or capsules.

Muscle tissues are comprised of two proteins, actin and myosin. The main components of the two proteins are leucine, isoleucine, and valine, which are called branched chain amino acid (BCAAs) for their molecular structures. BCAAs accounts for about 35% of the essential amino acids contained in myoproteins. Replenishment of BCAAs increases the raw materials for muscle tissues, which may contribute to muscle repair.

BCAAs make up 1/3 of muscle protein.

Studies show that during intense exercise the BCAAs are expended from muscle tissue at a rapid rate, which leads to muscle tissue breakdown. NutraKey BCAA is a high potency formula with a specific ratio of branched chain amino acids designed to help enhance absorption and muscle tissue recovery. Amino acids play a vital role in muscle growth and recuperation, weight management and many other important bodily functions. BCAAs are metabolized directly in the muscle and are especially useful to athletes because they may improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acid groups for repair and rebuilding.

My favorite BCAAs
Great taste (I love mixing it with Nutrakey Envie) and I feel good drinking it post/pre/or intra workout.
