Item#: UN521 UPC #: 099071004420
Branched Chain Amino Acid Formula. Flavored Powder. 6 grams of BCAAs per Serving. 2:1:1 Ratio. 60 Servings. Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), which include leucine, Isoleucine, and valine, comprise 35-40% of the essential amino acids in the body and are required for the maintenance of muscle during physical stress, such as exercise. Supplementing with BCAAs helps to promote protein synthesis (muscle building) and spare muscle tissue from being broken down for energy during intense training. Ultimate Nutrition Flavored BCAA 12,000 Powder contains a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine, and valine with each serving providing 6 grams of high-quality BCAAs in a convenient powder format. Taken on its own or combined with your favorite workout drink, Flavored BCAA 12,000 Powder mixes instantly for a delicious way to increase over all BCAA intake.
One of the challenges in maintaining focus during intense training and physical exercise is mental fatigue. Whereas most athletes worry about and take corrective action to ward against muscle fatigue, mental fatigue must be combated as well. In fact, recent research has placed increasing emphasis on mental fatigue during exercise. This mental fatigue is commonly referred to as central fatigue because of the involvement of the central nervous system. While central fatigue does not affect muscles, it can reduce the capacity to perform optimally.
There is a correlation between the amino acid tryptophan in the brain and the degree of mental fatigue. Upon entry into the brain, tryptophan has the ability to "calm" the central nervous system, causing sleep and drowsiness. Normally, there are sufficient amounts of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) circulating in the bloodstream to control the entry of tryptophan into the brain. During long-term and sustained exercise, however, muscles use large amounts of amino acids as a source for energy. The body prefers to use BCAAs for energy, since they readily replace glucose in the energy production pathways. As muscles begin to use BCAAs, the amounts of these amino acids drop, which allows tryptophan to enter the brain, inducing fatigue and tiredness. Research shows that supplementation with branched-chain amino acids can reduce central fatigue by tightly regulating the influx of tryptophan to the brain.
Branched-chain amino acids include leucine, isoleucine and valine. These amino acids are needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue during physical stress and intense exercise. From the perspective of athletes, BCAAs function as anabolic agents and induce sparing, which helps the body not to burn muscle.
