Pre workout, post workout, recovery
BCAAs are a staple in the lives of many athletes and active individuals, accounting for nearly 1/3 of the amino acids in muscle protein. They play key roles in the repair and growth of muscle tissue. FitMiss® BCAA is the perfect combination of BCAAs to increase lean body mass and even aid with fat loss.
- Promotes muscle development and maintenance
- Supports lean muscle growth
- Reduces muscle breakdown
- Optimizes recovery
- Convenient powder form
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING BCAA:
Individuals who want the benefits of a BCAA blend in a convenient powder form and who are looking to support lean muscle growth, recover faster, and decrease muscle breakdown.
KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN BCAA:
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 helps create the energy (glucose) your body burns for energy.[3,4]
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]
As a dietary supplement, consume one serving (1 scoop) of FitMiss BCAA mixed into 6-8 oz. of cold water, one to three times daily. For optimal use: take between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, during workouts, and/or immediately after workouts.
