SCITEC NUTRITION BCAA COMPLEX - 300 g
Leucine Dominant Anabolic BCAA Complex!
Everybody’s aware of the science and importance of essential amino acids, especially the so-called Branched-Chain Amino Acids.
Standard BCAA products typically contain a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. However,cutting-edge science has proven that Leucine is the most important amino acid, because it directly stimulates muscle protein synthesis! mTOR is one of the most anabolic signaling pathways stimulated by Leucine that leads to a significant muscle protein synthesis boost. Pulsing Leucine levels in the body are an anabolic switch and maximum protein synthesis requires around 4 grams of Leucine every 3 hours! Leucine also increases recovery and protects muscle tissues from catabolic breakdown.
The Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) are a group of so-called essential amino acids consisting of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. The BCAA’s are among the 9 essential amino acids for humans, because our bodies can’t manufacture them, so their only source is our daily food or food supplementation. On the other hand, they account for 35% of the essential amino acids in muscle proteins. Standard BCAA products typically contain a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, however on the market the new standard for BCAA’s is a dominant ratio of Leucine, 8:1:1 to the other BCAA’s. With this ratio you don’t have to increase the total product dosage to get high levels of Leucine. However, our BCAA COMPLEX formula doesn’t just stop with a new BCAA ratio! Glutamine is a top ingredient for athletes in popularity, so we included it to boost Glutamine intake levels as well. To increase the complexity of the formula, we added the amino L-Alanine as well, which is second only to Leucine in rate of occurrence in proteins and it’s particularly concentrated in meats!
Finally, BCAA COMPLEX is a source of Vitamin B6, which contributes to*:
– the regulation of hormonal activity
– normal energy-yielding metabolism
– the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
– normal functioning of the immune system and nervous systems
– normal protein and glycogen metabolism
– normal red blood cell formation.

Prepare 1 serving ina t least 300ml water. ALlow the drink to sit for a while to increase the dissolution of ingredients. Consume around and/or during your workouts or competition. Extra servings can be taken any time when aminos are needed, for example every 3 hours if Leucine is not provided by your food (to maximize protein synthesis).
Use this product in conjunction with food as part of a healthy, balanced diet, not as a substitute for such.
