Grenade®’s BCAA 8:1:1 is ideal for those who prefer to consume their BCAAs via capsules rather than in powder format. BCAAs refer to three amino acids: Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. They support muscle growth, as well as aiding recovery. Classified as essential, BCAAs cannot be synthesised in the body, so act as a great addition to your supplement stash.

The Important Stuff.

  • Maximising muscle growth is built on laying the best foundations and getting the simple things right. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and influence muscle growth through different pathways, the most important of these amino acids has been shown to be Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). Grenade® Essentials BCAAs are designed for all types of athletes looking to make the most out of their performance and recovery.

    Grenade® Essentials Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are an 8:1:1 ratio. BCAAs refers to three amino acids: Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine, these amino acids are classified as essential and cannot be synthesised in the body. Grenade® BCAAs have additional Leucine added to create a potent 8:1:1 ratio. Leucine, often referred to as the primary Branched Chain Amino Acid, has been shown to activate mTOR pathways, which proceed to induce muscle protein synthesis [4].

  • What are the benefits of BCAAs?

    Leucine: Studies suggest that this BCAA, even at modest levels, can literally “turn on” muscle-building activity [2].

    Isoleucine: Isoleucine promotes muscle recovery, significantly increases glucose uptake and usage during exercise and stimulates human growth hormone (HGH) release [6].

    Valine: Maintains the nitrogen balance.

    Will BCAAs be beneficial to me if I already eat a lot of protein?

    Yes. Ingesting free form amino acids in the form of BCAAs provides different metabolic effects compared to consuming whole protein sources. Similarly, free form BCAAs will be absorbed quicker than whey protein.

    Will BCAAs help me if I am dieting?

    When in a calorie restricted state BCAAs are a great supplement to take. BCAAs will help preserve muscle mass when dieting.
