ALLMAX Nutrition BCAA Unflavored -- 14.1 oz

Science • Innovation • Quality • Results. 100% Branched Chain Amino Acid. Pure Micronized 2:1:1 Ration. Increases Lean Muscle mass. Decreases Muscle Loss. Reduces Muscle Soreness. Unflavored / Pharmaceutical Grade. ALLMAX 100% BCAA 2:1:1. ALLMAX NUTRITION® brings you pure Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) powder in a 2:1:1 ratio. Unlike other aminos BCAAs are unique in that they are taken up by the muscles directly whereas other aminos are processed by the liver. BCAAs are critical to building muscle fast. BCAAs are widely known to increase the rate of muscle growth in response to training in fact research indicates that as much as 14% of muscle tissue is comprised of BCAAs. BCAAs are highly Anti-Catabolic. Since muscle tissue absorbs BCAAs directly your muscle tissue has the fuel it needs and dramatically limits muscle tissue break down. For competitive athletes looking to increase strength and muscle size BCAAs are the "must-have" supplement. L-LEUCINE - provides support to lean muscle tissue and provides energy specifically when training intensely and helps to maintain a positive nitrogen balance within the body. leucine is referred to as a "limiting nutrient"; meaning the body needs to be supplied by a specific amount in relation to other aminos to assimilate protein in the body. Leucine activates a major pathway called the mTOR pathway which stimulates muscle protein synthesis. L-VALINE - plays a role in glucose metabolism protein synthesis and provides immune support. It provides extra glucose for energy during times of  hardcore training making it a valuable addition for any athlete. It is also involved in the detoxification of excess nitrogen in the liver. L-ISOLEUCINE - provides muscle recovery post-workout and has been found to be helpful to assist in supporting blood sugar levels already within normal range. ISOLEUCINE plays a role in hemoglobin formation and can increase energy levels and extend endurance.  . ALLMAX 100% BCAA 2:1:1 is a pure formulation absolutely nothing else added. The BCAAs are 100% fermentaion-derived Japanese-grade and are the highest quality BCAAs you can buy.

Helpful protein source but ...

"It doesn't dissolve in water, and it is very bitter that way. Great in eggs and other cooked dishes. But it's hard to take in a glass of water or juice. I'm still giving it 5 stars because it's pure BCAA, no carbs, sweeteners, or flavors added."
