Among the most beneficial and effective supplements in any sports nutrition programme are Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). These are the essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. The combination of these three essential amino acids makes up approximately 1/3 of skeletal muscle in the human body, and plays an important role in protein synthesis, and thus muscle growth and repair. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in the human body and is arguably the most important in the process of building muscle and gaining strength. Citrulline malate again may enhance natural arginine levels and promote aerobic energy production as well as post-training recovery – a reduction in the sensation of fatigue has been shown, with reduced levels of lactic acid and ammonia quite evident. Beta-alanine promotes this reduction in fatigue and increase in aerobic energy to an even greater extent, whilst also increasing anaerobic energy, muscular strength and power output.
The patented Vitargo® and a High-Molecular-Weight Waxy Maize Starch have been added to the carbohydrate blend to drastically accelerate glycogen refuelling during and after training and events. Simply put, the refreshing USN BCAA Vitargo will allow active individuals to train harder for longer while assisting recovery!
