There are three different branched-chain amino acids, also known as BCAA’s: Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.
These amino acids are essential, which means they cannot be synthesized by the body and they must be obtained from food sources.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which assist in muscle and cartilage building and are key to an effective immune system.
During intense training, our body degrades the amino acids that are part of our muscle proteins. Thus, BCAA supplementation during intense training may be appropriate.
Current published studies recommend an 8:1:1 ratio for L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine, respectively, with bigger amount of L-Leucine than the traditonally 2:1:1 ratio used.
This formulation is also reinforced with L-Glutamine.

How to use
For strength training: Take 10 g (2 leveled dosage cups) right after training.
For endurance training: Take 10 g, (2 leveled dosage cups) given in two divided doses, one 30 minutes before training and the other one after training.
* A flat dosage cup equals 5 g.
It can be taken with our protein shake.
Contains 300 g (10.58 oz.)
Amino Acid Ratio 8:1:1
The BCAA 2:1:1 ratio has been extensively used because it is the same ratio that naturally occurs in animal protein.
However, in the past few years, L-Leucine has been identified as the all-star member of the BCAAs group, and current products on the market have higher ratios of Leucine.
In light of these changes, we have increased the amount of Leucine in our advanced formulation to an 8:1:1 ratio.
Free-Form Amino Acids
Free-form amino acids are important because they are more easily absorbed into the body.
