Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000 is a set of three amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. The preparation in the form of capsules allows for quick supplementation of branched chain amino acids and is an excellent support for endurance and regeneration training. The supplement accelerates post-workout regeneration. The package contains up to 400 capsules, and the portion is rich in 1g of BCAA. BCAAs are used by muscle cells as a source of energy, they prevent muscle breakdown during endurance exercise. The supplement also reduces fatigue, so you can exercise longer and harder.
Leucine - affects skeletal muscle synthesis in several ways: increases insulin secretion, a powerful anabolic present in our body, affects the activity of S6 protein kinase, accelerates phosphorylation of eIf4E binding protein and affects the degree of binding between proteins (eIF) 4E and eIF4G. All this, despite the complicated sound and naming, boils down to a very simple theorem - Leucine increases the degree and speed of using proteins to build muscle.
Isoleucine - supplying large amounts of Leucine causes a decrease in the level of the other two amino acids: Isoleucine and Valine, so it is so important to use all three compounds together. In addition, Isoleucine is classified as glucogenic amino acids, i.e. those that the body can easily and quickly convert into the energy it needs. This means that we will be able not only to train longer and harder, but also to recover faster.
Valine-its presence in this combination, owes not only to the aforementioned need to administer all three BCAA amino acids together, but also to reduce central nervous system fatigue. In addition, as with the other two amino acids, it is easily converted into energy consumed by working muscles and thus saves glycogen stored in the liver.
2 capsules between meals 35-45 after training
