Branched-Chain Amino Acids exert an anticatabolic effect by reducing the breakdown of protein, thereby protecting muscle tissue. Combined with L-Glutamine and vitamins B for optimized protein synthesis, BCAA provides robust musculoskeletal fortification when your body needs it the most. The BCAA formulation provide maximum efficacy for a quick and sustainable result in muscle tissue growth.*

Contains a High-Dosage Blend of L-Leucine, L-Glutamine and All Other Essential Amino Acids Known to Provide a Quick Muscle Tissue Growth Effect*;

    -Reinforced with Vitamins and Zinc that Facilitate Quicker Amino Acid Absorption and their Subsequent Metabolism into Muscle Tissue*;
   - Slows Down Muscle Fiber Catabolism Associated with Muscle Weight Training*;
     Soy- and Gluten-Free, Vegetarian Capsule, Field-Tested by the Military, Manufactured at a US cGMP certified facility

Directions
Take One (1) to Four (4) capsules thirty (30) - sixty (60) minutes before workout or expected high-intensity physical and/or mental activities. This product can also be used after your last workout of the day to facilitate quicker recovery*. 

Product Description
BCAA by Military Grade takes muscle recovery, sustainability, and growth to a whole new unprecedented level with this unique BCAA blend: Incorporation of L-Leucine together with L-Glutamine provides a synergistic multiple anabolic effect for muscle growth (L-Leucine is known to stimulate muscle protein synthesis through the mTORC1 regulatory pathway. mTORC1 is the nutrient/energy sensor that controls protein synthesis and, importantly, L-Leucine is virtually the only amino acid that can activate mTORC1) [1,2]; Recently it was also discovered that L-Glutamine also activates mTORC1 [3,4]; L-Isoleucine together with L-Leucine are potent stimulators of muscle glucose uptake [5, 6]; L-Glutamine and L-Leucine promotes muscle fiber volumization which in turn stimulates protein synthesis [7]; B12 provides maximum efficacy by intensifying the speed and impact of neurowaves on muscle tissue [8]; B12 is poorly absorbed by the body. In order to overcome this setback
 Biotin was added in order to increase B12's absorption and retention rate in the body [9]; Biotin is responsible for BCAAs' energy production in mitochondria, i.e. BCAAs cannot be used by skeletal muscle for purposes of producing ATP without the aid of Biotin [10]; B12 in combination with BCAAs speed-up muscle tissue repair time [8].(See references in the above)
