Maxi-BCAA represents the most comprehensive preworkout/recovery product on the market today.*
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.
Maxi-BCAA has a 4:1:1 ratio of BCAA’s, this formula boasts 4 g of glutamine, 1 g of L-Citrulline and an electrolyte profile all in a great tasting raspberry lemonade powdered drink mix. 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.*
