GoodVibes Lab BCAA is the best intra/post-workout recovery product on the market today.* We combined a 4:1:1 ratio of BCAA’s, with 4 g of glutamine, & 1 g of L-Citrulline and an electrolyte profile to promote lasting hydration all in a great tasting powdered drink mix.
At zero grams of sugar and zero artificial flavors, GVL BCAA works wonders during a fasted state. This can help prevent the body from catabolizing muscle tissue while keeping you in an ultimate fat burning state.*
BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine, and valine), in particular leucine, have the potential to produce anabolic effects on protein metabolism by increasing the rate of protein synthesis and simultaneously decreasing the rate of protein degradation in skeletal muscle tissue. The ratio of BCAA’s can vary from formula to formula and in this case the emphasis was placed on leucine primarily due to its role in providing metabolic support for insulin sensitivity.*
Many studies have indicated that exercise-induced blood ammonia elevation and blood lactate increments have been supported by L-citrulline supplementation. Further, citrulline may support the detoxification of ammonia via the urea cycle and also support healthy levels of additional glycolysis needed during exercise.*
L-glutamine is a mainstay in many workout products, specifically because of the role this amino acid plays in muscle recovery. The most notable mechanism is the
impact it has on nitrogen balance, which is vital to building muscle mass and perhaps more importantly, muscle repair.*
