BCAA+ G

BCAA+G consists of branched amino acids, glutamine and B vitamins to increase muscle mass, strength, endurance and reduce recovery times, tiredness and fatigue.


L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine are three of the eight essential amino acids that we cannot synthesize and must take via our diet or supplementation. One of their characteristics is to be branched-chained and therefore they are called branched-chain amino acids or, more commonly, BCAAs. Unlike others, they can be metabolised also in the muscle, and not just in the liver, and be used directly for the reconstruction of damaged fibres, allowing a quicker recovery time. Moreover, the proteins of the muscle are particularly rich in BCAAs, 35% of the BCAAs are to be found in the muscle. So, an intake of just BCAAs after intense physical activity is more advantageous for the reconstruction of the muscle fibres since they get directly to the muscle where they work quickly.


Glutamine is considered a conditionally essential amino acid since, even if it is synthesized by the body, in some situations it must be taken in the diet. At the end of the exercise, in particular if prolonged, the levels of plasma and muscle glutamine undergo a decrease that would often require hours to be re-established via the endogenous production of the amino acid. In cases like this one, its supplementation via supplements is particularly important. Glutamine stimulates protein synthesis, promoting an increase in muscle mass and water, amino acids and other substances with an anti-catabolic effect entering the cells. During the recovery period, it favours the storage of muscle glycogen and can stimulate the secretion of GH. Glutamine is considered as being able to fight the overtraining syndrome (chronic fatigue, loss in weight, loss of appetite, minor infections, nausea, depression) and to play the role of energy support in quickly multiplying cells such as lymphocytes and macrophages, contributing to support the immune system. In the central nervous system, it is converted into glutamate that is the most important and widespread central excitatory neurotransmitter. Just as important is Glutamine's ability to detoxify and regulate the blood and urine pH with a buffer effect. Glutamine intervenes in the formation of glutathione that is the most powerful antioxidant our body produces.

To maximize the assimilation and effectiveness of amino acids, vitamins B1 and B6 have been added. Vitamin B6 contributes to the normal protein and glycogen metabolism and to reducing tiredness and fatigue, while vitamin B1 contributes to maintain the physiological energy metabolism.
