What is USP Labs Modern BCAA+?
Modern BCAA+ from USP Labs is a dietary supplement of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs: Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine) with L-Alanyl-L-glutamine (Sustamine ™).
Modern BCCA+ presents a 8:1:1 ratio that also incorporates Citrulline Malate and Beta-Alanine in its formula, which increases the properties of amino acids.
Main features of Modern BCAA+
Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are the main components of the muscles and represent about 1/3 of the proteins that make up the skeletal muscle. The intake of BCAAs is essential for:
- strengthening muscle structure (1)
- minimising muscle pain after training (1)
- reducing the feeling of tiredness (2)
Modern BCAA+ with Sustamine™
Modern BCAA+ contains Sustamine ™, a dipeptide of Glutamine (L-alanyl-L-glutamine), a combination of L-Glutamine and L-Alanine that contributes to rehydrating the body and maintaining energy levels during exercise. (3) It differs from L-glutamine in the following ways:
- Greater stability
- More soluble in water
Glutamine contributes to cell proliferation and to muscle recovery in less time, reducing post-workout discomfort. (4) (5) Increasing the properties of Glutamine will increase its effect on muscle tissue.
