BCAA+ G is a powder dietary supplement with sweetener, and a glutamine, BCAA and B vitamin base. Glutamine is an amino acid that is naturally abundant in the muscle tissue. Leucine, valine and isoleucine are branched chain amino acids that are particularly suitable to supplement the diet of athletes who practice intense and prolonged physical excercise.
Branched chain amino acids, or BCAA, are three essential amino acids. They must be introduced into the body as part of a diet because our organism cannot produce them. BCAAs have plastic functions, thanks to their aliphatic portion they can be catabolized to produce energy (gluconeogenesis). They must not be metabolized by the liver but, after being absorbed in the small intestine, they are absorbed directly by the muscles, where they can be used to repair damaged protein structures or for energy purposes. The use of BCAAs for energy is tied to the body energy sources (lipids and carbohydrates); the more they are reduced, the greater carbon skeleton oxidation of the of the amino acids will be. The muscular activity required for endurance sports, if particularly long-lasting, is characterized by reduced protein synthesis caused by fewer amino acids being available because used as an energy source. This degradation extends even during the ﬁrst recovery phase to resupply the damaged muscular ﬁbers. Branched amino acids also play an essential role in protein synthesis, and as such they are indicated for power sports and bodybuilding to increase muscular mass.
BCAA+ G thanks to its B vitamins, this product favors energy metabolism and reduces feelings of tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin B6 also supports the metabolism of protein and glycogen, a glucose polymer, which acts as an energy reserve for the organism.
