BCAA 3:1:2 SUMMARY:

MusclePharm BCAA 3:1:2 offers a unique patent-pending ratio — 3 Leucine, 1 Isoleucine, 2 Valine — that is specifically tuned to deliver the ideal amounts of these three proteins (amino acids) during all phases of muscle development and maintenance. Through this formulation, amino acids are released both before and after a workout. MP BCAA minimizes muscle damage, while supporting increased lean body mass.

BCAA 3:1:2 BENEFITS:
  • Promote muscle development and maintenance
  • Patent-pending 3:1:2 BCAA ratio
  • Supports lean mass growth
  • Reduces muscle breakdown
  • Convenient powder form
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING BCAA 3:1:2:

Individuals who want the benefits of a patented BCAA blend in a convenient powder form and who are looking to gain muscle mass, recover faster, and decrease muscle breakdown.

KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN BCAA 3:1:2:

3:1:2 BCAA ratio (leucine, isoleucine, valine):

This patented ratio of BCAAs is based on the most abundant amino acids found in certain complete proteins such as whey, beef, and egg.

Leucine:

Leucine is one of the essential amino acids that helps induce muscle growth. Leucine has the capacity to stimulate muscle growth (protein synthesis) and has been suggested to slow muscle damage after intense training.[1,2]

Isoleucine:

Isoleucine helps create the energy (glucose) your body burns for energy.[3,4]

Valine:

Like leucine and isoleucine, valine encourages muscle tissue growth while providing energy from energy (glucose) creation. It also acts as a facilitator for normal growth and a reparative agent for various tissues in the body.[5,6,7]

PRODUCT USAGE:

Take one (1) serving (2 scoops) of BCAA 3:1:2™ mixed into 10-12 oz. of cold water. Consume 1 serving one to three times daily. For optimal use, take between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, and/or immediately after workouts.
