Three Tiny Acids That Have Total Control Over Your Fitness
PIVOTAL IN MUSCLE PERFORMANCE & RECOVERY
Going by the names of leucine, isoleucine and valine, these three little miracle workers are collectively known in science as Branched Chain Amino Acids [BCAAs], they are instant muscle fuel. Pivotal in muscle performance and recovery. Without these tiny suckers, your fitness goals are sunk. BCAAs work magic in your muscles. They don't even wait long to get started. They are muscle nitrogen injections to help you workout longer, stronger and recover properly. So much for the accolades. Here are the science facts about BCAAs:
- BCAAs, particularly leucine, are the most important amino acids for anyone who cares about their fitness. BCAAs have an anabolic effect on protein metabolism so your muscles can look their best - staying lean and strong.
- 20 years of amino acid science is solid. Taken before exercise, BCAAs increase intracellular and arterial BCAA levels which helps stop muscle tissue breakdown caused during your workouts.
- Taking 5g of BCAAs before and after exercise can reduce Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness and muscle fatigue for 2- 3 days after exercise. This guarantees your body quicker recovery. XAPP has 5.75g of BCAAs.
- Taking BCAAs after strenuous training helps preserve the body's ability to maintain muscle power output. This gives you more strength. So you will feel better, fitter that day and the next.
Known as the "limiting nutrient," leucine is one of the three Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). Your body requires leucine to make use of what you eat.
Without leucine, there is no protein synthesis. Without leucine, there is no muscle growth. Without leucine there is no recovery. Leucine is a potent stimulus of insulin – the body's most anabolic hormone.
- Without leucine you can forget about proper recovery. Because without leucine there is no protein synthesis and no muscle repair.
- Leucine is also a potent stimulator of insulin – the body's most powerful recovery hormone.
- Preserve lean muscle and muscle glycogen
- Supply the body with energy while exercising
- Maintain nitrogen balance
