Beyond Just Another BCAA
We live in a day and age in which optimizing performance, recovery, and results are integral to every meal we eat and supplement we consume. We don’t just consume post-workout protein and call it a day…we’ve learned from science that taking separate, free-form amino acids can give you an extra edge to take your progress to the next level.
Amino IV: A BCAA product with added benefits to take it beyond just another BCAA.
You spend all the time and money working hard and eating right…why sell yourself short on your essential supplements?
Leucine Loaded - The King BCAA
How much leucine does your amino product contain?
Amino IV packs 5 grams of leucine per serving, putting it in the top 1% of amino acid products on the market. In fact you would have to double-dose most BCAA/Amino products in order to get the same leucine content.
Countless research has shown that leucine is the key amino acid for activating muscle protein synthesis. Amounts as low as 1.8g (in combination with EAAs) have shown to be effective, with more commonly researched amounts around 2.5g (in combination with BCAAs), and the high amounts in the 3.6g range (alone, and in combination with EAAs).
We don’t mess around with Amino IV -- 5 grams of leucine per serving, and 30 servings per bottle makes Amino IV a cost effective leucine source, before we even get into the perks of the rest of the formula!
BCAAs are key ingredients to consume no matter what type of athlete you are. But the majority of the BCAA products on the market are just that...BCAAs, not a whole lot else. There are a few industry-funded BCAA studies out there with good results, but these products are missing something essential...literally!
The body requires 9 essential amino acids. These are amino acids that your body cannot make on its own, so they must be consumed via diet. When your body goes to make new protein, like the protein that make up your muscles, it requires that all 9 essential amino acids be present, not just the 3 BCAAs.
Your body starts by making muscle protein to build muscle mass. It incorporates the BCAAs into the growing protein chains, and then your genetic code calls for an essential amino acid. So what happens if you don’t have EAAs present? The new protein is terminated. You simply do not benefit.
Now most of us should have sufficient EAAs if we are on high protein diets, but if you are going to be taking a supplement with leucine or BCAAs, why just assume you have sufficient amounts already in your body? We created a product that provides each essential amino acid in every serving.
