Special nutritional supplement, that satisfy body needs after intense physical effort.

Supplement that delivers branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) in perfect 2:1:1 ratio.
Leuine, isoleuina and valine are three branched-chain amino acid form essential amino acids family, meaning that body cannot produce them and they must be delivered with food. Other essential amino acids are phenylalanine, methionine, tryptophan, threonine and lysine, but leucine, isoleucine and valine satisfy about 40% of body needs for essential amino acids. It is recommended to consume 40 mg per kg of body weight per day of leucine and 10-30 mg per kg of body weight per day of isoleucine and valine. To satisfy the needs of your body FA Engineered Nutrition® created new BCAA formula called Xtreme BCAA 5000.
Xtreme BCAA 5000 is a new amino acid product in form of powder intended to prepare a drink containing 5 g of the highest quality branched- chain amino acids (BCAA – leucine, isoleuine and valine) in the perfect ratio 2:1:1.
Branched-chain amino acids are crucial for muscle tissue during the workout, they increase anabolic activity, inhibit catabolism and serve as a fuel for working muscles. During the intense workout and to perform everyday activities as well, body uses ATP molecules as an energy source. ATP is produced in process called glucose oxidation. When glycogen storages in muscles are being used, ATP level also drops. After all of glycogen is used, body tries to support ATP level by BCAA degradation and breakdown of fatty acids. Depending on workout intensity, BAA can deliver 3 – 18% of energy. Because most of amino acids in the muscles are bonded, the amount of free amino acids, that can be used as a source of energy is very limited. BCAA stands for 35% of muscle mass and they are the main source of energy during prolonged and intensive physical effort. The longer and more intense the workout is, the more of leucine, isoleucine and valine is used. Leucine can be oxidized for energy or converted into glutamine and alanine, which can be used to produce glucose as an energy source in the bloodstream. Isoleucine and leucine can be converted with dehydrogenase into oxo-keto acids that can be later used in Krebs cycle, leading to ATP production. But BCAAs do not only inhibit catabolism. They also stimulate anabolism by increasing muscle protein synthesis. High level of leucine stimulates releasing of potent anabolic hormone insulin, which leads to increased BCAA absorption and decreasing muscle catabolism. Also, BCAA reduce lactic acid accumulation, which allows your body to efficiently regenerate after heavy workouts. Moreover, BCAAs inhibits tryptophan accumulation in nervous tissue, which is beneficial, because tryptophan increases level of serotonin, which is connected to fatigue level. With serotonin release inhibited, you can train longer without feeling fatigued.
Bearing all that in mind, Xtreme BCAA 5000 supplementation, that delivers 5 g of free amino acids in every serving – amino acids that don’t need to be digested and are quickly absorbed and delivered to working muscles – inhibits muscle catabolism and support your goal of increasing lean muscle mass. Wide spectrum of Xtreme BCAA 5000 applications makes it perfect BCAA supplement for professional athletes and recreational trainers.
BCAA – what is it? BCAA are branched-chain amino acids that are common used in mass gainers. BCAA abbreviation means the group of essential amino acids: valine, leucine and isoleucine. BCAA is dedicated mainly to active people that practise sports and gym training. These amino acids have the value spectrum of usage in bodybuilding. We need to deliver BCAA with meals - otherwise, organism won’t be able to synthesize them.
BCAA appear in various forms: powder, pills, capsules or liquids. You can buy them at professional sports nutrition shops - we recommend our BCAA shop.
BCAA nutrients – how they work? It connects with valine, leucine and isoleucine activity.
How to dosage BCAA? Experts, dietetics and personal trainers recommend from 0,5 g to 1 g powder per 10 kg weight as a daily dose. If you weigh 80 kg, you should take from 4 g to 8 g BCAA. Remember not to exceed the dosage!
BCAA dosage – to what pay attention? Consider the type of physical activity and its intensity. If you practice extremely hard, take the higher dose of BCAA - the more you practice, the higher dose you should take. Remember not to exceed the recommended amount of amino acids (from 0,5 g to 1 g powder per 10 kg weight).
BCAA is best to take around one hour before and a quarter after training.
BCAA dosage – how about no-training days? Then take BCAA in the morning on an empty stomach and before sleep.
