Protein is one of the most important nutrients that needs to be regularly included in our diet. Why? Because of its amino acid composition. Normally, a single protein molecule is a long chain of amino acids linked by peptide bonds. About a hundred types of various amino acids exist naturally in the environment. However, only twenty two of them are commonly found in the human proteins. Amino-acid composition varies in shape and function depending on its individual amino-acid sequence. Once absorbed and digested, these amino acids make a significant contribution as vital components of protein as well as virtually controlling all cellular activity and response in the body. Various experts as well as medical professionals agree that getting the right amount of amino acids in one’s diet is essential in maintaining proper nutrition.

Today in the fitness world, experts are more focused on consuming specific amino acids rather than just proteins. Many physiological processes related to bodybuilding, such as energy, recovery, muscle hypertrophy and strength gains, are linked to amino acid consumption.

Twenty-two amino acids that are naturally incorporated into protein chains have been identified and are now called proteinogenic (used in the production of protein). Among the twenty-two amino acids, eight of them have been labeled “essential” amino acids because the human body cannot manufacture them from other compounds, instead, they should be obtained from the diet. The remaining fourteen amino acids are considered “non-essential” because the body can create them.

With children, whose metabolic pathways are not yet fully developed, these “non-essential” amino acids become “semi-essential” amino acids. For people who lack enough of these amino acids, these “non-essential” becomes “conditionally essential”. The proper amount of amino acid depends on the age and well-being of an individual, which is why sometimes you will see some disparity in the number of essential and non-essential amino acids written in articles. Nonetheless, the inability to get enough of even one of those vital amino acids can result in the destruction of the body’s proteins and muscle tissues, for example.

The amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine are classified as a part of the essential amino acids. These types of amino acids are important for any active individual, bodybuilders as well as professional athletes because they affect the various features of muscle metabolism. The “branched chain” description refers to their unique chemical composition. One third of the skeletal muscle in the human body is made of a combination of these three BCAAs.

The body requires higher levels of BCAAs before and after any exercise routine, as they are absorbed directly by the skeletal muscles whereas other amino acids that are initially absorbed through the liver. BCAAs are so unique that they can be used to either construct new proteins or to be burned as fuel to produce energy. The highest levels of BCAAs can be found in dairy products, red meat and eggs. Though it seems that these BCAAs are present in all protein-rich foods, supplying your body with extra BCAAs can offer an advantage.

The human body needs a constant supply of amino acids because there is a steady fluctuation of protein accretion, especially during exercise. During any exercise or workout sessions, increased oxidation of the BCAAs is commonly identified as the signal for the body to stop its protein production in the muscles. The body uses the BCAAs during exercise to maintain energy levels and produce glucose. After an intensive session of endurance exercise, oxidation continues. Although the protein production in the skeletal muscle is raised after an exercise, so is protein damage. Lacking sufficient nutrition, the body will stay with a negative nitrogen balance, meaning protein breakdown (catabolism) exceeds protein production (anabolism).

This is where Ultimate Nutrition Flavored BCAA Powder 12,000 Watermelon - 457 gr comes in. Consuming Ultimate Nutrition Flavored BCAA Powder 12,000 Watermelon - 457 gr before and after exercise can reduce protein breakdown, increase protein synthesis and stimulate the release of insulin, an anabolic hormone usually associated with building various energy molecules in the body such as glycogen and triglycerides as well as with preventing the breakdown of muscles succeeding a period of physical stress thereby preserving muscle mass.

BCAAs are also known to have a positive effect on the mood and mental function of endurance athletes. Though limited, studies validate the idea that the BCAAs can help diminish serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is known to trigger a sense of tiredness, thus reduced serotonin levels will result in lower mental fatigue while maintaining mental sharpness during extended endurance exercise. Low levels of BCAAs also contribute to fatigue and should be replaced after any exercise or contest. According to various researches, BCAAs helps ward off fatigue while sustaining muscle mass and strength during intense workouts.

It was recently discovered that Leucine has its own muscle-building properties by affecting various chemical signals that activate protein production. Through a vital regulator of cell growth and protein manufacture, Leucine, with the other two BCAAs converts the body into a “muscle-building machine”. In other words, the body switches to an anabolic state in which it uses the available amino acids to construct hard and dense muscles. To get the highest benefits from Ultimate Nutrition Flavored BCAA Powder 12,000 Watermelon - 457 gr BCAA supplement, it is essential to get enough protein from your diet.

Fitness enthusiasts, bodybuilders, non-professional and professional athletes as well as gym warriors who train frequently and endurance athletes who compete in various events, such as running, cycling and swimming, will benefit from Ultimate Nutrition ® Flavored BCAA Powder 12,000 Watermelon - 457 gr. Regularly supplying the body with BCAAs can help meet the increasing demands of strenuous workouts. Many studies have shown that BCAAs can improve energy levels, build muscle as well as enhance a speedy recovery. Aside from making a significant contribution in protein production, the BCAAs produces extra energy during heavy lifting, besides helping spare muscle tissues and combating mental exhaustion during a strenuous workout. Ultimate Nutrition ® Flavored BCAA Powder 12,000 Watermelon - 457 gr can be taken anytime during the day, preferably without eating anything to avoid competition for amino acid absorption. However, the most appropriate time to consume Ultimate Nutrition ® Flavored BCAA Powder 12,000 Watermelon - 457 gr is directly before or after any training session.

At this time, determining the exact dose of BCAAs per kg body weight is difficult.
