BCAA 8:1:1 + L-GLUTAMINE
- Recovery mix of BCAA's + Glutamine.
- Includes Vit. B6
- Optimal BCAA ratio, 8:1:1
- Increases and protects muscle mass
The prestigious brand Weider has created a formula of BCAAs 8:1:1 and Glutamine, an advanced product that favours muscle development and promotes recovery after physical exercise.
It includes a dose of branched-chain amino acids in a ratio of 8:1:1 (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine). They have recuperative and also energetic properties, because they have the capacity to become a source of energy when the muscle glycogen is depleted. According to the latest research, Leucine initiates the processes of protein synthesis but must be accompanied by Isoleucine and Valine so that these can be carried out. Hence, the ratio 8:1:1 is of greater relevance to Leucine, the most important of the three.
Glutamine is an amino acid that is considered semi-essential and very important for our body. Of the available amino acids, Glutamine with 60%, has the greatest participation in the human body. The demand for glutamine increases with increasing physical and mental stress. Glutamine is essential to protect and repair muscle tissue. It favours recovery of both muscle fibre (because it promotes protein synthesis) and glycogen depleted during physical exercise. It also increases and improves the function of the immune system and has antioxidant effects.
Vitamin B6 has an essential role in the correct metabolism of proteins and glycogen, hence its importance in the processes of muscle recovery.
