BCAA 8:1:1

Branched Chain Amino Acids are the building blocks of muscle mass and size. BCAAs are absorbed directly into the muscle tissue and metabolized quickly, because of this, BCAAs commonly support Strength and power*, Muscle building potential*, Quick recovery after workouts* and energy levels*

There’s so much BCAA info out there that it can lead to muscle supplement madness! Our advice; KEEP IT SIMPLE

Eat high quality protein rich food along with a pure BCAA supplement for added results / recovery and workout smarter. 

Branched Chain Amino Acids are the building blocks of muscle mass and size. BCAAs are absorbed directly into the muscle tissue and metabolized quickly, because of this, BCAAs commonly support:

• Strength and power*

• Muscle building potential*

• Quick recovery after workouts*

• Energy levels*

BCAA supplements are essential for anyone who trains regularly and wants to preserve lean muscle while preventing catabolism.* Protein supplies the building blocks necessary to repair and build muscle tissue after your workout is complete. These proteins will then be broken down and disassembled into amino acids. 

There are 22 different amino acids in the body, all of which have a unique function. The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), so named because of their unique branched chemical structure, are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds

There is no right or wrong way when it comes to BCAA supplementation. Depending on your diet (regular intakes of protein throughout the day) Grenade® would recommend taking BCAA 8:1:1 pre and post workout.

Taking 5 capsules 30-40 minutes pre workout. This guarantees sufficient levels of amino acids are in the blood stream to support both energy production and help prevent muscles from going into a catabolic state (muscle breakdown). A further 5 capsules immediately after training when your muscles have the greatest protein requirement, helping to repair and recover. 

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.
