Machine Supplements instantised BCAAs 4:1:1 (branched-chain amino acids) is pure and pharmaceutical grade. BCAAs are a combination of the three essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body: Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. These BCAAs make up 35% of the body’s skeletal muscle and are needed for muscle growth to occur. Perfect for those wanting faster recovery, increased physical endurance and more muscle building.
Easily dissolvable (Instantised)
Traditional BCAAs are difficult to dissolve in water. Our iBCAAs are instantised, meaning they are significantly easier to dissolve in water. This process of adding an emulsifier is known as instantising, resulting in 'instant' BCAAs.
Double the Leucine
Our BCAAs contain double the Leucine compared to regular BCAAs. Leucine is the main component of BCAAs responsible for muscle building, therefore you can expect better muscle building results using our BCAAs.
Better tasting than regular BCAAs
Regular BCAAs have a distinct and unpleasant bitter taste. Our BCAAs have about one tenth the bitterness of regular BCAAs.
Muscle Building & Protein SynthesisLeucine stimulates an anabolic reaction with muscle building benefits including:
- Increased muscle-protein metabolism
- The release of insulin, HGH and testosterone
- Decreased exercise-induced protein degradation
- Supporting oxidative metabolism in muscles during strenuous exercise
A review titled "The Role of Leucine in the Regulation of Protein Metabolism" in The Journal of Nutrition reported that leucine supplementation can promote muscle anabolism. The results of the review showed that leucine enhances insulin sensitivity and induced muscle protein synthesis, the process of muscle growth, recovery and maintenance. Leucine was also reported to suppress protein breakdown within the muscle, or muscle catabolism (breakdown).
Increasing endurance exercise capacity
Leucine supplementation can have positive effects on sports performance, including increased work capacity and stamina and the ability of the body to preserve lean muscle mass during high intensity workouts. Leucine has been reported to spare muscle glycogen levels during exercise inhibit the decrease of leucine levels within skeletal muscle among strength athletes. One study conducted by researchers at the Institute of Sport and Exercise Science at James Cook University looked at the effects of leucine supplementation on canoeists. The findings showed that work capacity, power and rowing time all significantly increased while the placebo group results remained unchanged.
Immune system regulation
BCAAs are taken up by immune cells in the gut as a fuel source, allowing the immune system to regenerate itself and protect against illness. A strong immune system aids in recovery and makes you less likely to get sick. The stronger the immune system, the less likely you will get sick from overtraining or regular bouts of intense exercise.
BCAAs also help reverse glutamine loss, which is essential for immune function.
