BCAAs are key ingredients to consume no matter what type of athlete you are. But the majority of the BCAA products on the market are just that...BCAAs, not a whole lot else. There are a few industry-funded BCAA studies out there with good results, but these products are missing something essential...literally!
The body requires 9 essential amino acids. These are amino acids that your body cannot make on its own, so they must be consumed via diet. When your body goes to make new protein, like the protein that make up your muscles, it requires that all 9 essential amino acids be present, not just the 3 BCAAs.
Your body starts by making muscle protein to build muscle mass. It incorporates the BCAAs into the growing protein chains, and then your genetic code calls for an essential amino acid. So what happens if you don’t have EAAs present? The new protein is terminated. You simply do not benefit.
Now most of us should have sufficient EAAs if we are on high protein diets, but if you are going to be taking a supplement with leucine or BCAAs, why just assume you have sufficient amounts already in your body? We created a product that provides each essential amino acid in every serving.
