ProSupps HydroBCAA is here to change the way that you think about amino acid supplementation. For years, BCAA supplements reigned as king and rightfully so with strong research data supporting the key role they play. However, these supplements utilizing BCAAs alone are missing something essential. Literally speaking, they fail to include EAA as well in the formula which can actually cause more harm than good! With research comes innovation and with innovation comes HydroBCAA, the complete amino acid matrix formula that utilizes the power of both a research validated 2:1:1 ratio branched chain amino acids (BCAA) and essential amino acids (EAA) to deliver the comprehensive solution for preventing muscle breakdown and speeding exercise recovery.*
HydroBCAA: The Science
The complete amino acid matrix of HydroBCAA contains both BCAA and EAA, a crucial aspect of formulation that ensures you are maximizing protein synthesis, supporting lean muscle, improving glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity, decreasing post-training soreness and preventing muscle breakdown.*
BCAA include the amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. Individually, they each play a powerful role in the body upon ingestion:
Often considered the 'king' of all the amino acids, Leucine is one of the most beneficial amino acids all around, by itself it can stimulate muscle protein synthesis which is the process responsible for muscle growth and recovery.
Stimulates protein synthesis to a lesser degree than leucine, its primary role is that it significantly increases glucose uptake and the usage of glucose during exercise, leading to greater energy production. There is also evidence that isoleucine may prevent fat storage by stimulating the receptors that inhibit fat storage and increase fat burning.
This BCAA is known for its effects in promoting muscular endurance and decreasing fatigue during exercise. The mechanism of action is through valine competing with and winning against tryptophan for entry into the brain. Tryptophan converts to serotonin which signals to the body that it is fatigued, therefore leading to decreases in muscle endurance and strength, so by preventing tryptophan from entering the brain, valine prevents fatigue.
Essential amino acids, more commonly known in short as EAA include the 8 amino acids Methionine, Lysine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan as well as the 3 BCAA Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine. They are all considered ‘essential’ as the body can’t produce them on its own and are responsible for a variety of functions. Included in such is stimulating the production of cellular energy and promotion of cellular repair, initiation of the creation of the critical enzymes necessary for healthy (and complete) digestion, preventing muscle breakdown during periods of intense physical stress, and the enhancement and protection of the mitochondria.
