What are Amino Acids?
Amino acids are used in every cell of your body to build the proteins you need to survive. All organisms need some proteins, whether they are used in muscles or as simple structures. Amino acids are the building blocks to help you grow and repair.
Scitec BCAA Complex:
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!
