Overview
Of the nine essential amino acids, valine, leucine, and isoleucine have branched side chains; these are called branched-chain amino acids or BCAAs. These BCAAs play important roles during exercise and in the maintenance and growth of skeletal muscle. During exercise, BCAAs are used as an energy source and also play an important role glyconeogenesis - a mechanism for reusing the glucose used for energy in muscle. Because the body requires increased amounts of energy during exercise, BCAA oxidation is increased; therefore supplementing with additional BCAAs will preserve muscle tissue from being broken down to acquire BCAAs. BCAAs are energy-rich in the sense that their oxidation produces increased amounts of adenosine triphosphate or ATP. ATP is used by cells as an energy carrier. It is often referred to as "molecular currency" and is responsible for transporting energy within cells for metabolism.

Our delicious grape flavored BCAA Plus delivers leucine, isoleucine, and valine in the ideal ratio of 2:1:1. BCAA Plus also includes glutamine for improved athletic performance and cognitive function as well as citrulline malate to promote muscle recovery and decrease muscle fatigue.
