The Body Attack BCAA capsules constitute the amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine. They help the body in the formation of specific tissues, hormones, enzymes, and neurotransmitters. They are also the building blocks of endogenous proteins and are involved in the build-up and maintenance of muscle mass. Therefore, the BCAA Capsules from Body Attack are well-suited to be a supplement to a high-protein diet or also usual protein shake before and after physical exertion.
A capsule contains 300 mg L-Leucine, 150 mg L-Isoleucine and 150 mg L-Valine.
In extreme situations in which the energy storehouse is exhausted, like fasting or during a marathon, the amino acids are involved in the glutamine and energy production. This means the body can use these amino acids for gluconeogenesis in emergency situations and safeguard the normal sugar-dependent metabolic processes at the same time. The largest suppliers of BCAA can be found mainly in meat, which can deliver up to 25 percent of these essential amino acids. In a low-meat diet or in case of dislike of animal foods, the BCAA capsules can be a useful supplement.
What are the other active substances in the Body Attack BCAA?
The Body Attack BCAA capsules also contain various B6 vitamins, which can contribute to smooth running of normal protein and sugar metabolism and ensure the same. For strength athletes, these vitamins are particularly interesting because the body needs them for normal synthesis and the normal metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters. The hormones, vitamin D and vitamin B 6 are partly responsible for build-up and maintenance of muscle mass.
The BCAA capsules from Body Attack are also suitable for marathon runners or endurance athletes, as the energy metabolism is greatly increased during physical exertion.
The B vitamins contained are even involved in the normal synthesis of red blood cells, which are destroyed during the stress of running for a long duration due to the impact of the feet on the ground. The BCAA Capsules from Body Attack and the B vitamins are ideal for athletes, who want to promote the normal energy metabolism.
1. Worth knowing: Why are BCAAs readily available?
All non-essential amino acids reach the liver after intake. There, they will be either synthesised for formation of new body proteins or converted to other energy-rich compounds. Since the liver does not have enough of these enzymes, the BCAAs cannot be utilized in the liver. Therefore, 70 percent of the amino acids in the blood stream result from BCAA after a high protein meal.
Which products can the Body Attack BCCA capsules be combined with best?
Before and after workout, in combination with the Body Attack Extreme Whey Deluxe, a multicomponent whey protein, which can help preserve and build up muscle mass.
