Instant BCAA 2:1:1
BCAA is short for branch chain amino acids which are used to help build lean muscle mass and stop muscle breakdown (catabolic activity). Now go and have a look at other brands and you'll find one thing about ATP Science BCAA's- we're not trying to trick you!
You won't see any 4:1:1 ratio, 10:1:1 ratio or anything like that. That's not the way BCAA's have been studied or found in the body, the magic ratiofor effectiveness is 2:1:1.
The branch chain amino acids are leucine, isoleucine and valine.
While Leucine is the star amino in the bunch and substantially more anabolic than Isoleucine and Valine- the 'lesser' amino acids actually enhance protein synthesis better than Leucine alone. The natural amount of BCAAs found in skeletal muscle is at a 2:1:1 ratio- So whether well-meaning or looking for a marketing edge save your money and stick to the most researched BCAA ratio of 2:1:1.
>99% Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, (<1% Sunflower Lecithin added for instantisation).
