SSN's BCAA powder is a potent and precisely balanced blend of the Branched Chain Amino Acids- L-Leucine, L- Isoleucine and L-Valine, which are important building blocks of lean muscle tissue.In addition to their lean muscle building properties, BCAA's are metabolized directly in the muscle, and may thereby improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acids for repair and rebuilding.Clinical studies show that BCAA's taken prior to exercise spares muscle BCAA reserves thereby providing an effective anti-catabolic (tissue sparing) effect, whilst BCAA's taken post-exercise with a carbohydrate and protein shake, supports muscle building and recovery efforts.
BCAAs can be taken at any time during the day, preferably on an empty stomach to avoid competition for absorption with other amino acids. Although the most beneficial time to take the BCAAs are directly before or just after training. One study used approximately 3400 mg of Leucine for a 170 pound man for recovery and tissue synthesis for lean individuals needing to build muscle. This study used Whey protein mixed with extra Leucine. The diet consisted of 55% carbs and 15% proteins with added Leucine taken throughout the day. Another study indicated the use of BCAAs with approximately 50% Leucine as the base with Whey proteins at 1.26 grams per kilo, which is about 107 grams per 170 pound individual.
Safety And Precautions
Studies related to experimentation of higher dosage of BCAAs in rats - an excess of 15 grams per kilo gram of body weight, have shown to decrease B3 blood levels and tissue levels. For a 100 pound man that would be about 750 grams. Based on the dosages as listed above, it is always good to make sure that enough b-vitamins the supplement program maintains a high protein level in the body. Acceptable dosages seem to be around 4-20 grams, depending on body weight and event of use.
