Muscle tissue consists primarily of two proteins, actin, and myosin. The BCAAs, or Branched Chain Amino Acids, are the main components of these two proteins and make up about one-third of muscle tissue in the human body.
BCAAs consist of the three essential amino acids known as leucine, isoleucine and valine. The reason they are called branched-chain is due to the fact that their structure looks like a ‘branch’ off the main part of the molecule. They are called “essential” because the body cannot produce them on its own, they must come from the diet or supplements, in fact, there are eight total amino acids termed “essential”.
BCAAs are perhaps best known for their ability to directly impact muscle growth by stimulating protein synthesis, largely an effect of leucine, which has been clinically proven to play a major role in this highly anabolic process. The BCAAs also promote nitrogen retention, helping to keep the body in an anabolic state, which is conducive to muscle growth and recovery. BCAA supplementation directly enhances recovery by providing the raw materials that are needed for repair of muscle tissue post-training. Additionally, the BCAAs have important anti-catabolic properties by helping to prevent muscle protein breakdown during intense exercise. In this case, the body uses supplemental BCAAs for energy rather than cannibalizing muscle tissue.
BCAA Optima by NutraKey is an advanced formula that features 7 grams of BCAAs in the proven 2:1:1 ratio and is designed to enhance recovery and muscle growth as well as prevent muscle protein breakdown. BCAA Optima also includes an exclusive Taurine-based Electrolyte Blend for maximum performance and a special Glutamine Matrix, which works synergistically with the BCAAs to promote both muscle growth and recovery.
Every serving of BCAA Optima by NutraKey contains micronized BCAAs for optimal absorption and utilization. BCAA Optima is an innovative formula that represents the kind of advanced thinking that sets NutraKey apart from the competition.
