When your primary concern is building muscle, thereâ€™s a few things you need to focus on each day -- eating ample calories, training intensely by following the principles of progressive overload, and getting enough rest. But sometimes thatâ€™s not enough. Sometimes your body is missing those key nutrients it needs throughout the day to repair, replenish and rebuild your mind and muscles.
BCAA Resurgence is your all day, every day muscle-building insurance policy that provides the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to promote optimal muscle growth and recovery.Â
L-Leucine (2.5g)Â Dubbed the â€œkingâ€ of all amino acids, Leucine is one of the three branched-chain amino acids, along with Isoleucine and Valine, that play a key role in muscle growth. Leucine is the primary stimulator of muscle protein synthesis by activating the mTOR pathway which flips the switch in your body to build muscle.
Iso-Leucine (1.25g)Â Another one of the BCAAs that can stimulate muscle protein synthesis, but to a lesser extent than leucine. However, isoleucine does play a significant role in glucose uptake and utilization during exercise, resulting in greater energy production and performance. Isoleucine may also play a role in fat loss, as some research indicates the amino acid inhibits fat storage and increases fat burning.
L-Valine (1.25g)Â The third BCAA, Valine supports greater endurance and reduced fatigue while training. Valine competes with tryptophan (another amino acid) for uptake into the brain (and wins!), leading to decreased serotonin production. The brain interprets serotonin as an indicator of fatigue, so with less serotonin, youâ€™ll be able to push harder for longer during your lifting sessions.Â
HICA Scientifically known as Alpha-Hydroxy-Isocaproic-Acid, or Leucic Acid, HICA is a metabolite of Leucine that
works in conjunction with other active amino acids present in BCAA Resurgence to stimulate muscle growth and
Theobromine A relative of caffeine, theobromine is a xanthine-like molecule that stimulatesÂ the CNS similar to caffeine but energy surge is much smoother and longer-lasting. Additionally, theobromine alsoÂ enhances vasodilation, promoting superior cerebral blood flow for greater focus and concentration.
Choline is an essential nutrient that plays a critical role in gene expression, cell membrane signaling, lipid
transport, metabolism, and brain development. CDP-Choline is a highly bioavailable form of supplemental choline that increases synthesis of acetylcholine (a.k.a. â€œThe learning neurotransmitter"). Higher levels of acetylcholineÂ promote greater focus, concentration, and the ever-important mind-muscle connection during exercise.
For an amino acid boost, take one (1) scoop first thing in the morning.
For pre-workout energy, take one (1) to two (2) scoops 30 minutes before training.
For post-workout recovery, take one (1) to two (2) scoops immediately after training.
