The ultimate workout buddy - our simple formula contains a powerful blend of L-Glutamine, Branch-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), and B6.
To help understand more here is a basic equation for muscle mass:
muscle mass = rate of protein synthesis - rate of protein breakdown.
And... working out compounds the metabolic effects of dieting. The leaner one becomes, the more lethargic one can become... Decreased energy intake and decreased glycogen storage can make for some rough training sessions! So how do you defend against this three-headed monster of muscle loss? Attack all three heads!
It is well-established that BCAAs (particularly leucine) stimulate protein synthesis, and might do so to a greater extent than a normal protein on its own. BCAAs also increase synthesis of the cellular machinery responsible for carrying out the process of protein synthesis. Thus, BCAAs not only increase the rate of protein synthesis, but they also increase the cell's capacity for protein synthesis! Yep, you read that right.
BCAAs also work in your favor by reducing the rate of protein breakdown. They do this (primarily) by decreasing the activity of the components of the protein breakdown pathway, and by decreasing the expression of several complexes involved in protein breakdown.
If we revisit our original equation for muscle mass, it's plain to see that increasing synthesis and decreasing breakdown equates to muscle gain/maintenance. And that, my friends, is how we fight the Cerberus of muscle loss!
