MVP’s Pure 100% BCAA 5000 Powder provides a 5000 mg blend of the three Branched Chain Amino Acids (L-Valine, L-Leucine and L-Isoleucine) per serving. The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are named because of their unique branched chemical structure. They are essential as the body cannot produce them from other compounds. In recent times, these amino acids have been investigated for their potential anti-catabolic (preventing muscle breakdown) and anabolic (muscle building) effects (1).
Other studies have shown that BCAAs increase nitrogen retention, protein synthesis, and muscle tissue recuperation. They are accountable for up to 90% of the total amino acid uptake by the muscles (2). The three BCAAs are combined in balanced proportions to ensure maximum absorption into the body. BCAAs are ideal for individuals who want maximum muscle tissue growth and repair (3).
