Branch Chain Amino Acids are the “Building Blocks” of the body. They make up around 35% of your muscle mass and must be present for molecular growth and development to take place. Besides building cells and repairing tissue, BCAAs form antibodies, they are part of the enzyme & hormonal system; they build RNA and DNA and they carry oxygen throughout the body.
A complete amino acid profile is needed by your body to reach its maximum fitness potential.
BCAAs act as nitrogen carriers which assist the muscles in synthesizing other amino acids needed for anabolic muscle action by combining simpler amino acids to form a complex whole muscle tissue. In this action, BCAA’s stimulate production of insulin, the main function of which is to allow circulating blood sugar to be taken up by the muscle cells and used as a source of energy.
How does Acacia™ BCAA Ignition Series™ Work?
During intense weight training the body gets into a high catabolic condition. At this time glycogen stores are being rapidly depleted and the liver in turn must synthesize glucose by a conversion of L-Alanine. Alanine makes up over half of the amino acid content released from muscles during exercise.
The release of BCAAs is generally recognized as the signal to the body to stop protein syntheses in the muscles, especially during times of stress. Acacia™ BCAA Ignition Series™ stops this signal and allows protein synthesis to continue onward hence ensuring that you grow muscles after each workout session.
• BCAAs prevent Fatigue by sacrificing themselves and preserving Adenosine Triphosphate (ATPs- The primary source of energy).
• With each Workout session, your muscles are degraded and then recovered. This degradation of muscles for use as source of energy is known as Catabolism. BCAAs prevent catabolism and preserve muscles.
• BCAAs also help in faster recovery and ensure that you achieve your maximum potential during each workout session
• BCAAs have been known to improve concentration and mental agility
