What Is It: This is Optimum Nutrition's best BCAA formula to date. They first came out with Amino Energy, and now they've come out with this stimulant free BCAA formula+ in PRO BCAA. This has the highest quality ingredients for the PRO in all of us.
How It Works: The Branched Chain Amino Acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are valued for their anabolic and anti-catabolic properties. Used in the 2:1:1 ratio before and/or after endurance exercise they may help spare muscle tissue. Used after strength training, BCAAs help kick-start protein synthesis which plays an important role in muscle growth. We included 5 grams of L-Glutamine because this conditionally essential amino acid may help support recovery after intense exercise.
Use: Mix 2 scoops of PRO BCAA™ in 10-12 oz of cold water or your favorite beverage and consume before, during or after exercise.
