DIETARY SUPPLEMENT SPEED UP RECOVERY PROTECT AGAINST MUSCLE TISSUE BREAKDOWN DURING EXERCISE BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) - L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine - are an important group of amino acids for humans. All three are used by the body to speed up recovery, and protect against muscle tissue breakdown (catabolism) during exercise.* Branched Chain Amino Acids are considered essential amino acids because human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet. Since one third of all muscle protein is comprised of BCAAs, they are extremely important for developing and building muscles. Broadly, Leucine protects muscles and bones. Valine promotes nitrogen balance which is essential for muscular growth. Isoleucine helps provide the necessary energy and is essential for forming hemoglobin. Our Instantized BCAA 5000 has been pre-formulated with the proper 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Valine and Isoleucine, and mixes easily into your favorite beverage.* Directions For Instantized BCAA 5000: Consume Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, and/or immediately after workouts. Mix with water, juice or shakes for best results. Warnings: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
