Description

+BCAA controlled release is a 2:1:1 ratio branched amino acid supplement with an innovative controlled-release formulation to ensure a continuous supply before, during and after training. +BCAA contains L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine which are essential amino acids, useful for protein synthesis and to prevent or limit muscle catabolism.

leucine, valine and isoleucine BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids) perform important functions:

  • Leucine, which is present in greater quantities (2:1:1 ratio), is directly involved in the production of muscle proteins (directly stimulating mTOR). So it is involved in muscle growth and intervenes in the recovery
  • Valine is an amino acid with an energetic function and limits muscle breakdown.
  • Finally, isoleucine has energy and muscle building functions.

BCAAs are essential amino acids because our body cannot synthesize them and therefore they must be taken through either diet or supplementation. BCAAs represent the largest share of amino acids in muscle proteins (more than 25%) and can be metabolised directly into the muscle, ensuring faster intervention at muscle fibre level and effort support.

The time when branched amino acids are taken is vital to ensure more energy, muscle protection, better recovery and increased performance. Sportspeople often ask themselves what is the best time to take BCAAs and proteins: before, during or after training?

Most athletes get their best performances by taking BCAAs 20-30 minutes before training, but because each individual has his/her own metabolism, absorption times may vary from person to person. In fact, depending on the case and intensity of training, it is possible to obtain better results by dividing the dose of BCAAs between before and after the sports activity. On the basis of this evidence, +BCAA controlled release was developed consisting of branched chain amino acids (Leucine-Valine-Isoleucine) present in all layers of the tablet, released at different times and with vitamins B1 and B6 to support energy metabolism.

The benefits of BCAAs for athletes have long been known. Taking BCAAs in a single tablet that allows them to be released at three different times offers many advantages:

  1. Fast release
  2. (just before training): increases the availability of energy. In fact, BCAAs can influence the response of the growth hormone, insulin and testosterone and block the entry of tryptophan into the brain (BCCAs compete with the tryptophan receptors at CNS level). CNS can be converted into serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in the fatigue mechanism; if the quantity of serotonin in the circulation increases, the degree of fatigue and tiredness increases too. On the other hand, by increasing the proportion of BCAAs in the circulation, less serotonin is produced, and fatigue occurs more slowly.
  3. Intermediate release (during training): fights fatigue during training. BCAAs can reduce the protein degeneration that occurs in skeletal muscles and can be useful in relieving fatigue during prolonged training. During training, BCAAs can provide extra fuel and reduce muscle protein consumption.
  4. Retard release (after training): for fast and optimal recovery. Immediately after training, it is important to restore energy reserves and promote protein synthesis, thus reducing post-workout catabolism.
How to use
Take 5 tablets a day with water preferably 30-45 before physical exercise.
