In the right ratios, BCAAS can improve endurance, strength and overall body composition. Inner Armour’s BCAA Peak rocks a leucine-loaded 12:1:1 formula that just plain works.
While you may agonize over which supplements to budget for each month, it’s important to note that there may be no better nutrients for creating muscle than BCAAS. If you’re a serious athlete or even just serious about improving body composition, BCAAS should be a critical part of your daily routine. But as Inner Armour’s BCAA Peak shows, not all formulas are created equal.
An often undervalued member of the supps family, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAS) include three crucial aminos for feeding your physique: leucine, isoleucine and valine. Our bodies would fail without these essential nutrients because we cannot make them ourselves.
BCAAS are good for general health but are especially valuable for those concerned with sports performance or physique improvement. Isoleucine increases the uptake of energy by muscles during exercise, allowing for a longer workout before a muscle starts to “feel the burn.” Valine helps to build muscle, too, and studies show that leucine is especially good at stimulating protein synthesis. Leucine supplementation actually increases the total concentration of BCAAS in the body, facilitating an increase in both output and muscle growth, which is why BCAA Peak uses a scienti�ically backed, leucine-heavy ratio of 12:1:1 (leucine, isoleucine and valine). It also includes glutamine, because studies show that when an adequate amount of glutamine is ingested, the body increases the rate of protein synthesis and recovery as well as the rate at which lean body mass is gained while also improving immune function.
BCAAS aren’t just valuable for recovery. They’re a potent intraworkout source of fuel that can help you train longer and harder. Research has shown that taking BCAAS before a workout can delay time to fatigue, making it ideal to keep with you in a shaker cup while you train. If that weren’t enough, BCAA ingestion has been shown to increase postworkout levels of growth hormone (GH).
Adding Inner Armour’s BCAA Peak to your routine can help you train harder, speed healing and leave you feeling less like a rusted machine, faster. BCAA Peak can be taken before, during and/or after workouts and contains an elite 12:1:1 ratio of branched-chain aminos, including 6.2 grams of leucine plus 2.5 grams of L-glutamine per serving. BCAA Peak is sugar-free and gluten-free, and contains no dyes.
