We demand a lot from our bodies when we exercise. Whether we’re running on the treadmill or slingin’ heavy dumbbells, our muscles have to produce more and more energy to keep us going strong and hard. That energy expenditure inevitably causes some muscle damage. Not to worry. Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), which are made up of the essential amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, are here to help!
BCAAs are arguably one of the most popular and widely used supplements in the entire fitness industry today. BCAAs are considered essential because, unlike non-essential amino acids, your body cannot produce them; therefore, it is essential to ingest them through diet or supplementation.
BCAA COMPLEX™ by Stance Supplements contains 5 grams of Instantized BCAAs per serving at a ratio of 2:1:1 (“2” for Leucine and “1” for Isoleucine and “1” for Valine). Why is that important?
Scientists have conducted numerous studies on BCAAs and their ability to help muscles both during and after exercise. Research supports a ratio of 2:1:1 because the body needs twice as much Leucine as Isoleucine and Valine. Most experts recommend 4-5 grams of BCAAs per serving.
An added benefit of drinking BCAA COMPLEX™ is it is formulated with key electrolytes to help keep you hydrated throughout your workout, as well as other important aminos like L-Citrulline and L-Glutamine. Plus, the flavors are out-of-this-world delicious (we’re looking at you, Peach Gummy and Strawberry Sour Belts!)
BCAA COMPLEX™ can be enjoyed before, during and after exercise. You decide! And no, you don’t have to be a serious athlete to use this product. All fitness levels, from first-time gym goers to seasoned veterans, can benefit. As always, for best results, use BCAA COMPLEX™ in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program.
