Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are the 3 amino acids called Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.
When dosed at the correct 2:1:1 ratio, supplementing with BCAAs has been proven to help preserve lean muscle mass, reduce fatigue, and reduce post workout soreness (DOMS – delayed onset muscle soreness).
Leucine has been called the “anabolic switch” as it activates a protein called “mTOR” which in turn induces muscle protein synthesis via S6K.
But what does this all mean?
It means more gains! Gains in muscle, gains in strength, improved recovery, and increased fat burning.
But as always, not all BCAAs are the same – unfortunately most BCAAs currently on the market are extracted from bird feathers, human hair, and hog fur using harsh chemicals.
Bird feathers? Hog fur? We think that’s BS – that’s why all Pitbull Labs® BCAAs are made from vegan plant sources.
Pitbull Labs® BCAA includes 1g of L-carnitine Tartrate, which has been shown to help shuttle long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane, essentially making fat available to burn for energy!
Pitbull Labs® BCAA also has 2.5g of L-Glutamine to further support recovery and 2g of L-Citrulline to increase Nitric Oxide (N.O.) levels in the blood and improve performance.
Finally, we added freeze dried coconut water powder and a premium blend of electrolytes to ensure optimal hydration.
This makes Pitbull Labs® BCAA ideal to take any time during the day or while you train to crush your workout!
