For use before, during, and after activity, our BCAA Capsules help maintain mental clarity, prevent muscle tissue damage, and enhance muscle growth. Each capsule delivers a 4:1:1 ratio of the three BCAAs (leucine, valine, and isoleucine) along with B Vitamins that facilitate muscle tissue recovery and reduce nausea during exercise. Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are the three amino acids responsible for helping to reduce muscle fatigue, speed recovery, and decrease the loss of other amino acids from muscle during exercise. These building blocks of proteins can be found naturally in your diet and are essential to maintaining a positive balance between muscle damage and muscle repair.
When: Anytime is a good time to prevent muscle tissue damage. Taking BCAA capsules before, during, and after exercise helps decrease muscle tissue damage as a result of strenuous exercise.
Do 2 capsules provide enough BCAA?
Yes – as little as 2-3mg of BCAA can enhance muscle buildup and prevent muscle breakdown.
What about vitamin B toxicity if I take too many capsules?
Not to worry. Vitamin B is a water-soluble vitamin, so any excess intake will be eliminated in your urine.
Can I take capsules during exercise?
Of course! And this will help performance if your nutrition during exercise does not contain BCAA.
