BCAAs how do they work?


We’ve all seen it, people in the gym sipping away on some kind of coloured water while they workout. Well as many of you already know, there’s a very high likelihood that they are drinking BCAAs, but what exactly are they and what do they have to do with you achieving your fitness goals?

BCAA’s are branched chain amino acids, more specifically the amino acids are Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. These amino acids are essential amino acids, which means that your body must get them from food sources (other amino acids can actually be produced by your body). These branched chain amino acids are derived from protein and one gram of protein equals one gram of amino acids. One gram of protein will usually have about 20 different kinds of amino acids. However not all of these amino acids are specifically useful for maintaining, repairing and building muscle tissue. Furthermore your body will take about three hours to extract amino acids from regular food protein sources. This is where the primary reason for supplementing with BCAAs during training is revealed:

1)       Contains only the most useful amino acids for muscle tissue repair

2)       Unlike regular protein, BCAAs take just 10-15 minutes to be utilised

Now that we know what BCAAs are and what their advantages are over regular food protein or other protein supplements, let’s take a look at exactly what’s in Cyborg Fusion and how it can help your training. Fusion contains:

  • L-Leucine – 3500mg
  • L-Valine – 1750mg
  • L-Isoleucine – 1750mg
  • L-Glutamine – 2500mg
  • L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate – 1000mg

The Benefits of BCAAs:

  • Stops muscle catabolisation (metabolising muscle during training)
  • Improves recovery time and decreases muscular soreness
  • BCAA’s trigger protein synthesis (the assimilation of amino acids into muscle tissue)

The Benefits of L-Glutamine:

  • Stops muscle catabolisation
  • Increases growth hormone levels
  • Assists in fat metabolism

The Benefits of L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate:

  • Assists in fat metabolism
  • Increases high intensity work capacity
  • Improves recovery from intense exercise

Cyborg Fusion BCAAs are an easy way to ensure that you are providing your body with the optimal nutrition that it requires to get the muscle building, recovery and fat burning from your hard work in the gym.
