Description Directions For Usage Product Label Information
The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine. So-named because of their branching molecular structure, the three BCAAs comprise an astonishing 70 percent of your muscles' protein composition. All three of these workhorses are essential aminos, meaning that your body cannot fabricate them from other aminos. They must be supplied in abundance in your diet. They are the aminos that are most rapidly processed by your body because they're critically needed in all of your body's muscle building, recovery and repair processes. In the three hours following a meal, they account for 50 to 90 percent of the total amino acid uptake by your muscles. Your dietary BCAAs, and particularly L-leucine, help increase work capacity by participating in the production of insulin. Insulin, as you know, is the "key" to opening up your muscle cells to glucose uptake. And, glucose uptake is critical for energy production. There is much research indicating that the BCAAs have powerful anabolic properties. This means that they both prevent muscle protein breakdown as well as stimulating muscle protein synthesis. Moreover, up to 15 percent or more of your high intensity workout energy is derived from the breakdown of the BCAAs.

Here are some of the critical factors that must be accounted for when taking BCAA supplements:
  • Since they are synergistic (they work as a team), they must all be ingested at the same time;
  • BCAAs should be in abundance in all of your daily meals, particularly your pre-workout meal;
  • Supplemental BCAAs should be taken before, during and after intense training;
  • By promoting anti-catabolism in this fashion, you have succeeded in indirectly amplifying your post- workout anabolic processes provided by ample use of your ProPower BCAAs supplements;
Anabolism is a word which means muscle building. ...and isn't that the point?
