Superior Quality MEGA AMINOS BCAA Boost Energy Release, Promote Muscle Tissue Repair & Stimulates Release of Anabolic Hormones To Enhance Strength & Endurance
MEGA AMINOS provides 100% pure, bioactive BACCs which have potent anti-catabolic effects which prevent muscle breakdown, whilst simultaneously stimulating muscle growth. The three essential amino acids are Isoleucine, Leucine and Valine which cannot be produced by the body and therefore must be obtained via dietary or supplementary intake. Branched Chain Amino Acids (BACCs) make up almost 20% of muscle mass, making the three essential BCAA out of the twenty essential amino acids incredibly important.
- MEGA AMINOS BCAA Capsules provide a high dose of BCAAs in a scientifically proven ratio of 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine to yields maximum results
- Using only the highest quality sources distinguishes MEGA AMINOS as a premium product providing an ultra-pure BCAA supplement
- Superior quality ensures that MEGA AMINOS is easily and completely absorbed and is rapidly delivered to muscle tissue
- BCAA are the building blocks of proteins & additionally stimulate muscle growth and repair whilst actively inhibiting the release of catabolic hormones following exercise
- Only muscle tissue can oxidise BCAAs to release energy making BCAA an essential supplement to provide an energy boost to increase performance & endurance
- BCAA have a glycogen sparing effect which extends the time to fatigue, enabling you to train at a higher intensity for longer
What are Branched Chain Amino Acids?
Three amino acids that have a unique branched side-chain chemical structure are collectively termed the branched chain amino acids. The three amino acids Isoleucine, Leucine & Valine are essential amino acids that must be obtained through the diet or supplementation since they cannot be synthesised by the body. BACCs form a large component of muscle tissue and this makes MEGA AMINOS an essential supplement for every person who works out.
These three molecules are the sole component of MEGA AMINOS. No extra carbohydrates, lactose, filler or binders are added, making MEGA AMINOS ultra-pure. Using only the highest quality sources and advanced refining technology to ensure 100% purity enabling complete absorption and fast action.
A wave of new scientific evidence has emerged, outlining the key benefits and the mechanisms by which BCAAs mediate their physiological effects. BCAAs are now recognised as much more than simple building blocks for muscle and exciting new research is helping to realise the full potential of BCAA.
Energy Boost & Enhanced Performance
During exercise, cellular glucose levels fall and glycogen stores are depleted as they are hydrolysed to release energy and proteins are catabolised (broken down) as a final measure to meet the energy demands of muscles which can lead to loss of muscle mass.
Whilst most amino acids are metabolised in the liver, BCAAs are primarily oxidised to release energy for contraction in muscle tissue. The muscle specificity of BCAA oxidisation makes BCAAs an essential and effective supplement to fuel muscle contraction, amplify endurance and prevent muscle catabolism. Results show an increased level of BCAA in the blood during and after exercise reflecting a significant increase in BCAA oxidisation during prolonged exercise.
Muscle Mass Maintenance Via Anti-Catabolic Effect
Several studies have established the mechanisms by which BCAAs act as signalling molecules to influence hormone secretion. Experiments in which the blood plasma concentration of hormones was monitored before and following BCAA administration showed that there was an increase was observed in anabolic hormones including growth hormone, testosterone and insulin, whilst there was an observed decrease in the release of the catabolic hormone cortisol. BCAAs not only stimulate growth but actively prevents muscle catabolism
The graph below shows that a carbohydrate, generic protein plus supplementary Leucine (CHO+PRO+leu) caused a higher insulinotropic effect than carbohydrate and protein alone. This proves that BCAA potentiate insulin release through different mechanisms to achieve an effect that is above and beyond the capacity of a generic protein rich supplement.
Promotes Muscle Hypertrophy
The effect of BCAA increasing muscle mass is widely accepted – amino acids form the basic building blocks of all proteins which make up the bulk of muscle mass. Whilst it is well understood that a higher intake of amino acids will facilitate muscle growth by providing the raw material for growth, exciting new studies have shown that BCAAs function as signalling molecules to command an increase in muscle mass. Leucine in particular has been shown to be involved in signalling via the mTOR pathway to cause muscle hypertrophy. The graph below shows that the Fraction Synthetic Rate (FSR), which is an indication of the rate of protein synthesis, is higher with supplemented Leucine compared to a generic protein supplement.
Stack the Gains
Strong scientific evidence exists to prove that Leucine is the most potent among BCAA that stimulates protein synthesis, muscle growth and prevent muscle catabolism. However, evidence also exists to show that it is vital to balance Leucine with Isoleucine and Valine to prevent a negative impact and maximise results. Our complete, balanced formula provides each BCAA in an appropriate ratio according to scientific research. Additionally, it is important to supplement MEGA AMINOS with the WHEYMAX® Hydrolysed Whey Protein Isolate to provide an ultra-pure source of protein to facilitate muscle growth.
Produced by our in-house nutritionists, this product has been formulated using only the highest quality sources to ensure that MEGA AMINOS BCAA delivers results and distinguishes it from competitors. Highly acclaimed and recommended by leading sport science experts for the superior quality and efficacy of MEGA AMINOS BCAA greatly enhances high intensity exercise endurance.
We recommend using the high purity WHEYMAX® Hydrolysed Whey Protein Isolate alongside ZMAC to facilitate rapid muscle recovery and growth.
Q. Is BCAA found in everyday foods?
A. Yes, BCAA's are found in protein rich foods such as beef, chicken and fish.
