- 100% Fermented BCAAs Formula
- 7g 2:1:1 Pharmaceutical-grade Fermented BCAAs
- 3g Pharmaceutical-grade Fermented Glutamine
- 1g Coconut Water Extract for electrolyte replacement
LABRADA BCAA POWER is a delicious BCAA powdered drink mix made using highest quality, pharmaceutical grade, fermented BCAA amino acids, fermented L-glutamine, plus electrolytes. The 2:1:1 ratio BCAA blend (2 leucine: 1 isoleucine: 1 valine) contained in BCAA POWER has been shown to be the optimum ratio in providing both amino acids as building blocks AND taking advantage of leucine's role as an anabolic signal in the muscle cell. Taking this BCAA combination immediately prior to, or during exercise will prime your muscles to respond to your training.
Not Just BCAAs?
Labrada Nutrition believes that high-quality and taste are critical components of a BCAA supplement, and we believe that we lead the industry in these two areas. But, as important as these components are, it's not enough.
BCAA POWER was formulated with the athlete in mind, and as a result, it also contains an effective serving of L-glutamine to help jumpstart recovery from exercise and support immune function, along with coconut water extract to replenish your electrolytes lost while training.
An Overview of BCAA Power Each serving contains:
7g 2:1:1 Pharmaceutical-grade Fermented BCAAs
BCAA or Branched Chain Amino Acids refers to the essential amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine.
BCAAs are unique because they are metabolized directly in the muscles instead of the liver like other amino acids. Muscle tissue is composed of over 30% BCAAs. The BCAAs, in particular leucine, stimulates protein synthesis in the body, reduces catabolism, and reduces fatigue during your workouts.
The BCAAs in BCAA Power spike blood amino acid levels to a much greater and faster extent than branched chain aminos obtained from other protein sources. This is because they are in free form (not part of a protein) and require little to no digestion and are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream.
3g Pharmaceutical-grade Fermented Glutamine
Glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body- about 60% in muscle tissue- and is important for muscle recovery and growth.
Research suggests that supplementing with glutamine allows subjects to recover faster between workouts.
Glutamine is critical for optimal immune system function. Repetitive, intense training sessions take their toll on the immune system, which if ran down enough can allow you to get sick and hamper your progress. Glutamine supplementation can combat these effects, keeping you healthy and training to your maximum potential.
1g Coconut Water Extract for electrolyte replacement
During intense exercise, your body excretes and/or uses several trace minerals, or electrolytes, to perform various functions in your skeletal muscle system. When you have exercised intensely enough, or have been sweating for long periods of time, your body needs these electrolytes replaced in order to remain capable of performing at peak capacity. If your body does not get adequate electrolytes, you can experience decreased athletic performance.
Why FERMENTED Aminos? Not All BCAAs are Created Equal
Did you know that not all BCAA (branched chain amino acids) supplements are created equal? Not from the ratio, or additional ingredient standpoint... but from the actual QUALITY of the aminos themselves. There are a several different ways to produce amino acids, and the most common method is a very harsh acid extraction of animal products including duck feathers and human hair. This process, which involves hydrolysis for several hours using high heat and strong acids, creates amino acid hydrolysates that must then be filtered, dried, and refined to make them fit for human consumption. This is the most popular way to produce amino acids due to the abundance of raw materials, lower cost and ease of manufacturing. This process may produce a product that is contaminated with allergens.
The other, less common, and more expensive method of production of amino acids is accomplished through the fermentation of cultures in a pharmaceutical lab. Through this process, no animal products are used as starting materials; and no harsh chemicals or high heat treatments are used to manufacture the aminos. The result is a higher quality, allergen-free, and more efficacious amino acid product.
Labrada proudly uses fermented BCAAs and L-glutamine in BCAA POWER, to ensure you are getting the highest quality and value for your dollar, while protecting you from contaminants found in lower quality amino acids.
Mix 1 scoop of BCAA Power in 8 oz of cold water or your favorite beverage, before or after training. On Non-Training days, mix 1 scoop of BCAA Power with 8 oz of water or your favorite beverage, any time of day.
