Garnell Nutrition-BCAA (180 Capsules)What are BCAA’s? BCAA stands for Branch Chain Amino Acids, of which there are three (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine). They are one of the most overlooked and most effective supplements for anyone looking to build muscle and increase performance or simply to help lessen the muscle breakdown while doing intense exercise. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and muscle growth. BCAA’s make up 35% of our muscles and have to be present in the body for muscle growth. On top of that they are used to balance hormonal release and brain functions. When you are working out with heavy weights or doing extended periods of cardio, having a supply of branch chain amino acids (BCAA’s) can benefi t you greatly. This is because, when you work out your body quickly depletes your glycogen storage and starts sending a signal to stop protein synthesis. This makes your body become catabolic (this is when your body starts breaking down muscle tissue), which is exactly what you don’t want. When you use Garnell Nutrition’s BCAA’s , you can greatly assist the body and allow you to continue protein synthesis. This can lead to better muscle gains, faster recovery between sessions, and greater performance.
