What are Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s)? There are three branched-chain amino acids (BCAA’s); L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine. All three are essential amino acids, meaning that they must come from the foods we eat because the body cannot synthesize them from other amino acids. BCAA’s serve very important purposes in the body. First, high levels of BCAA’s in blood help conserve stores of glutamine, a nonessential but major amino acid with regard to muscle growth. Second, BCAA’s serve as a significant fuel source for skeletal muscle during periods of metabolic stress. If you are exercising intensely, you are experiencing metabolic stress. When the body is under stress, BCAA’s act directly on muscle cells and promote protein synthesis which is the goal of all fitness enthusiasts whose primary focus is to improve their physique. Third, BCAA’s help prevent protein catabolism (muscle breakdown) by acting as a readily available fuel source for hard-working muscles during intense exercise.

Also, supplementing with BCAA’s can help you to finish your long intense workouts because you may not fatigue as quickly. BCAA’s should be a staple in everyone’s supplement regimen.*

Why take BCAA’s? It is a known fact that intense workouts and exercise programs can break down muscle tissue. It is during this time that the body is an extremely catabolic (muscle wasting) state. But this type of intense training is necessary for optimal results when the goal is to increase lean muscle and decrease bodyfat. However, combating this problem is quite simple. It is a known fact that BCAA’s possess powerful anticatabolic effects. BCAA’s have the ability to increase protein synthesis during intense training and exercise and dramatically speed recovery following your workouts which is extremely important in order to achieve optimal results.*

What is BCAA GT-AKG? VitaSport’s BCAA GT-AKG™ is a powerful blend of Branched Chain Amino Acids as well as other muscle sparing and recovery compounds designed to work synergistically to maximize your workouts, dramatically improve muscle recovery time, reduce muscle wasting, preserve lean muscle tissue and increase protein synthesis. In addition to L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine, we decided to take BCAA supplementation and muscle recovery to the next level by adding in our exclusive GT-AKG™ Complex.While most companies will use the less advanced L-Glutamine, our proprietary blend includes both Glutamine AKG and Taurine AKG, the two most abundant amino acids in skeletal muscle in the AKG form for superior uptake and absorption to further enhance muscle recovery. But we didn’t stop there. BCAA GT-AKG™ also contains two additional anti-catabolic agents, Alpha-Ketoisocaproate and Phosphatidyl Serine which further increases the effectiveness of BCAA GT-AKG™. Finally, we topped off this advanced formula with Vitamin E,Vitamin C and Vitamin B6. Both Vitamin E and Vitamin C have a plethora of benefits including working on the cellular level to protect against and reverse oxidative stress, thus preventing excessive muscle damage and enhancing muscle recovery. Vitamin B6 will dramatically enhance absorption and is absolutely necessary for proper BCAA utilization. Without the addition of Vitamin B6, the transportation of the BCAA’s at the cellular level is severely compromised. BCAA GT-AKG™, consisting of the proven 2:1:1 ratio of Branched Chain Amino Acids, provides your body with specific nutrients that are absolutely necessary to effectively maximize and sustain lean muscle tissue.The end result is a powerful anti-catabolic effect when used in conjunction with proper nutrition and a regular exercise program.*

NOTE: The added Glutamine AKG to this formula is not intended to replace the current use of GL6™ or your favorite glutamine supplement. The addition is intended only to enhance the benefits of BCAA GT-AKG.™ In addition to BCAA GT-AKG™, and for maximum effectiveness,we recommend that you continue to use GL6™ or your favorite glutamine supplement in addition to a high quality, sustained release protein blend throughout the day.*
