The three branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine, get to your muscle fibers faster than any other free form amino acids. This is because, unlike other aminos that must be metabolized through the liver, BCAAs are taken up directly by skeletal muscle tissue. Thus, supplementation with BCAA, in conjunction with a weight-training program, helps support accelerated new protein synthesis and lean muscle growth. It also extends the anabolic window... the time between work-outs when your muscles have time to repair and grow. CALIFORNIA FITNESS BCAA contains only the highest quality, pharmaceutical grade BCAAs, in the optimum ratio to support maximum muscle growth. Powder form means quicker absorption compared to capsules or tablets. With no unnecessary fillers, sweeteners, flavors, or preservatives, CALIFORNIA FITNESS BCAA is pure, natural nutrition designed for serious performance athletes.


CALIFORNIA FITNESS BCAA HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Free Form Amino Acid Formula
  • Optimum Ratio For Promoting Maximum Lean Muscle Growth
  • Faster Absorption Than Tablets Or Pills


WHY BCAA?

The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. They make up 35% of your muscle mass. BCAAs are considered essential amino acids because human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet. During intense weight training the body is in a highly catabolic condition. At this time glycogen stores are being rapidly depleted and the liver in turn must synthesize glucose by a conversion of L-Alanine via the glucose-alanine cycle. The BCAA's are involved in maintaining glucose homeostasis through the glucose-alanine cycle. The glucose-alanine cycle involves pyruvate (derived from glucose) being transaminated in muscle to form alanine, with the BCAA serving as the main nitrogen source (donors) for the synthesis of alanine. Then the liver can synthesize glucose by a conversion of L-Alanine.

 

The BCAA's stimulate protein synthesis through insulin secretion/activation of the PI3K pathway, and  through activation of mTOR.

 

One pathway through which protein synthesis can be increased is the phosphatodyl-inositol-3-kinase pathway (PI3K). PI3K regulates glucose uptake through GLUT4 translocation and also increases amino acid uptake. Insulin, the body's "storage" hormone, works by activating the PI3K pathway. Interestingly, leucine ingestion causes insulin secretion, but leucine can also directly activate PI3K in the absence insulin. So not only can leucine increase glucose uptake, it can also increase it's own and other amino acids' uptake into cells.

 

The Mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) is one of the body's protein synthesis regulators. When mTOR is activated (high ATP levels sensed) protein synthesis is increased and when mTOR is suppressed (low ATP levels are sensed) protein synthesis is blunted. Leucine is the key regulator of the mTOR-signaling pathway.

 

Intake of leucine stimulates expression of the hormone leptin in adipocytes. Leptin is a hormone, which is involved in the regulation of metabolism, body weight, and appetite.

As an adult dietary supplement, take one serving of CALIFORNIA FITNESS BCAA (5 grams), twice per day. For optimum results, take one serving 30 minutes before your work-out, and one serving immediately after. Can be mixed with fruit juice, milk, water, or your favorite beverage.


TIMING INFORMATIONS:

To get optimal benefits from branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) they should be taken before working out or after a workout to feed and repair muscles.

AFTER WORKOUTS: Getting BCAAs immediately after your training is crucial for preserving and building muscle. After workouts the muscles are especially receptive to nutrients and also blood flow to the exercised muscles still remains high.

BEFORE WORKOUTS:BCAAs have a positive effect on reducing fatigue during workouts and help in maintaining plasma levels of BCAAs in the body. As exercise breaks down muscle tissue, so supplying the BCAAs before exercise constantly provides the most important muscle bulidng and performance echancing amino acids that can instantly reapeir msucle cells, improve recovery, and lean muscle growth.

In addition, if you’re really concerned with losing muscle, BCAAs can be taken in between meals to help fight off catabolism and imrpove anabolic processes between meals. Try taking one or two servings in between meals to assist in maximizing your mass potential.
