PhD BCAA's 195 Caps

Only £16.49 RRP £19.99

BCAA’s are Branched Chain Amino Acids consisting of 3 essential amino acids leucine, iso-leucine, and valine. They are considered essential amino acids because human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet.

Together they comprise approximately 1/3 of human muscle tissue. Studies have shown that BCAA's help to stimulate protein synthesis and inhibit its breakdown, so BCAA's have powerful anabolic and anti-catabolic effects on the body.

PhD Nutrition BCAA’s, the exciting first product in their brand new “Recovery range” have been designed to the specific 2:1:1 ratio required to optimise the effects of Leucine, the most important of the three BCAA’s.

PhD BCAA’s are vital to protein synthesis (the ability to build muscle) and also vital in reducing muscle damage. Vitally, when we workout strenuously with weights, we oxidise amino acids (use them to fuel our training). BCAA oxidisation is rapidly promoted by exercise, so when we train hard, we use BCAA’s.

If we do not replace or keep topping these BCAA’s up before, during and after exercise, we run the risk of increasing muscle damage indicators Creatine Kinease (CK) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and missing the opportunity of recovering in the optimum time. Slow recovery means slow progression, fast recovery equals faster progression, it’s a simple equation.
