Capsules with the branched chain amino acids (BCAA) leucine, valine and isoleucine in the optimal proportion of 2:1:1. As opposed to others amino acids, BCAA are directly taken up and metabolised by the muscles, serving the body mainly as combustion during exertion. With insufficient supply, the body falls back on muscle tissue, which consists of 35% BCAA. Out of BCAA the body also produces glutamine, the most frequently occurring amino acid in the musculature, which fulfils versatile functions.
The relationship between BCAA and the amino acid tryptophan is modified under work-out; this accelerates the constitution of serotonin, a material that promotes fatigue. The supply of BCAA during exertion already prevents the increase of serotonin, thereby delaying the central tiredness of an endurance performance.
A specific completion with BCAA helps the body to preserve its own reserves, minimises muscle reduction after exertion and promotes the constitution of muscle.
