DPS Price: $19.99
BCAA is a dietary supplement engineered to pack 5 grams of pure isolated instamino® Fermented Vegan BCAAs per serving in a scientifically proven 2:1:1 ratio. Paired with Laxogenin and its plant based benefits, BCAAs are everything you need to rebuild, repair and trigger lean muscle growth. No fluff, no fillers and no added colors or dyes.
BCAAcan be taken throughout the day and is especially useful intra-workout to speed recovery.*
BCAA is a cutting-edge formula combining the best amino acids for muscle growth with anabolic botanicals to supercharge your gains! 5 grams of fermented, vegan-friendly, branched-chain amino acids at a 2:1:1 ratio are packed into every scoop, so that each amino acid is dosed properly to work synergistically for maximal growth. Additionally, the brassinosteroid laxogenin is a plant-based molecule with a similar chemical structure to synthetic steroids, and provides profound muscle benefits.
• Branched-chain amino acids: signals for muscle growth by maximizing muscle protein synthesis
• Laxogenin: a brassinosteroid that has proven benefits for muscle growth, similar to some anabolic steroids
• Electrolytes: minerals that are lost in sweat and are essential for muscular contraction and neurotransmission
After a muscle-tearing workout, recovery is mandatory and requires the right fuel. Not only will BCAA provide the electrolytes, hydration, and amino acids that need to be replenished, but it will create an anabolic environment for optimal muscular growth. Maximize your gains with the plant-based performance of BCAA!
Instamino: Vegan Fermented Instant Branched Chain Amino Acids
Branched chain amino acids (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) make up three of the nine essential building blocks of protein, so they are muscle building requirements. Even more importantly, they help to maximize muscle protein synthesis by activating mTOR: the master molecule for muscle growth.
- Amino acids are produced naturally from fermentation, resulting in a clean, eco-friendly, vegan product
- Branched-chain amino acids have demonstrated improvements in strength, lean mass, and fat loss when combined with an 8-week resistance training program, compared to a carbohydrate beverage (2009).
5 Alpha Hydroxy Laxogenin
Laxogenin is a brassinosteroid that is chemically similar to animal steroid hormones and insect ecdysteroids. Brassinosteroids do not affect hormone levels, but improve muscle growth through a non-hormone, kinase-mediated molecular pathway, so that natural hormone cycles are left intact.
- Esposito et al. (2011) demonstrated that oral administration of brassinosteroids increased muscle mass, body weight, and food intake while leaving testosterone receptors unaffected.
Electrolyte Replenishment Matrix
Electrolytes are necessary for a wide range of biological activities, such as transmission of neural impulses to muscle, muscular contraction, and bone mineral density. Since electrolytes are lost in sweat, it is essential to replenish these essential minerals frequently.
- Magnesium supplementation improved insulin action, glucose availability, and exercise capacity, while lowering the stress hormone cortisol, in triathletes (1998).
Q: How do I take BCAA?
A: Take 1 scoop (7g) with 10-12 ounces of water one to two times daily.
Q: What are BCAA’s?
A: BCAA’s are branched-chain amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which make up muscle tissue. Leucine, isoleucine, and valine are 3 of the 9 essential amino acids, meaning the body cannot synthesize them and they must come from the diet.
Q: Is laxogenin a steroid? Will it affect my hormones?
Though laxogenin is a brassicosteroid and is chemically similar to animal steroids, it works in a very different fashion than steroids and evidence suggests that brassicosteroid have little to no effect on androgenic hormones and their receptors. Brassicosteroids will not affect hormone levels.
Q: When should I take BCAA?
BCAA can be taken pre, intra, or post workout for a boost in anabolism and muscle protein synthesis. They can also be taken between meals as a way to spike muscle protein synthesis multiple times per day.
