Real Whey brings you pure Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) powder in a 2:1:1 ratio.

L-Leucine- provides support to lean muscle tissue and provides energy, specifically when training intensely, and helps to maintain a positive nitrogen balance within the body. Leucine is referred to as a "limiting nutrient"; meaning the body requires L-Leucine in a specific ratio to other aminos to assimilate protein into the body. Leucine activates a major anabolic pathway called the mTOR pathway which stimulates muscle protein synthesis.
L-Valine- plays a rule in glucose metabolism, protein synthesis and provides immune support. It provides extra glucose for energy during hours of hardcore training, making it a valuable addition for any athlete. It is also involved in the detoxification of excess nitrogen in the liver.
L-Isoleucine- provides muscle recovery post-workout and has been found to be helpful to assist in supporting blood sugar levels already within normal range. Isoleucine plays a role in hemoglobin formation and can increase energy levels and extend endurance.
