Super Anti-Catabolic Formula
Prolab Nutrition's BCAA Plus is a high-potency formula containing the essential amino acids L-leucine, L-valine, and L-isoleucine. These three protein-sparing amino acids are known as branched chain. It is a well-known fact that amino acids are responsible for protein synthesis, hence the nickname "building blocks."
Studies show BCAA's are important for muscle growth and recuperation. Muscle production depends on an increase in protein synthesis. BCAA's are converted to L-alanine, an important source of muscle energy. This is done through a process called transamination, which is the transfer of amino groups into other amino acids. BCAA's may also be of benefit to you during extreme dieting by lessening the catabolic (breaking down) effect on muscle tissue. Your body cannot manufacture its own BCAA's. They must be supplied through your diet. Do not shortchange your progress, use Prolab Nutrition's BCAA Plus.
