Anabolic and anti-catabolic support- the branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine are valued for their anabolic and anti-catabolic properties. Used in the 2:1:1 ratio before and during endurance exercise they may help spare muscle tissue. Used after strength training, BCAAs help kick-start protein synthesis which plays an important role in muscle growth. We included 5 grams of L-Glutamine because this conditionally essential amino acid may help support recovery after intense exercise. Beyond the basics-8 grams of BCAAs, 5 grams of L-Glutamine and 230 mg of vitamin C per serving. Available flavored and unflavored for stacking, at just 5 calories per serving.
