Our bodies contain thousands of protein which are made up by 20 different amino acids. I know, these amino acids must have some very strong bonds. Nine out of 20 amino acids are essential amino acids that are only obtained through your diet and not created by your body. Three out of the nine essential amino acids are the Branched-chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) i.e. leucine, valine, and isoleucine. These ones should probably be called a-mean-o acids because these BCAAs are found in protein-rich foods such as dairy, meat, and eggs and they are quite popular as workout supplements. So we sifted through some BCAA's and wondered what would be classed as a great BCAA product based purely on ingredients .... And we found Brute BCAA.
Brute BCAA is a premium intra workout supplement from Killer Labz, designed to supply valuable essential amino acids. Brute BCAA comes with different flavors, and the ingredients used to create it are BCAAs (leucine, valine, and isoleucine), taurine, L-Alanine, L-Glutamine, (-)-Epicatechin, 5a-hydroxy-laxogenin, and black pepper extract. Here are all the benefits you get from Brute BCAA by Killer Labz.
- BCAAs (Leucine, valine, and isoleucine)
BCAAs, together with all the other amino acids, increase muscle protein synthesis which is important for building muscles. It is therefore important to ensure that you eat a balanced diet along with your Brute BCAA to ensure that you get optimum muscle protein synthesis after brutal workouts.
BCAAs also reduce after workout muscle soreness. This is because they decrease protein breakdown during workouts and reduce levels of creatine kinase. This reduces the level of damage to the muscles and in turn, the level of severity of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). Your only problem at the gym will be choosing which treadmill to hop on instead of wondering how you’ll go down the steps.
BCAAs also prevent muscle breakdown which occurs when protein breakdown is more than muscle protein synthesis. When you replace the BCAAs lost during workout sessions, you slow down muscle breakdown significantly.
Taurine is an essential agent in metabolism and digestion. It assists the liver to create bile salts which are crucial for breaking down cholesterol and fatty acids in the intestines, thus promoting healthy metabolism.
As the most powerful amino acid in the retina of the eye, it also protects your eyes against retinal degradation and other eye disorders such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy We thought UV glasses were a great hack, turns out we just needed amino acids this whole time.
Taurine also prevents muscle damage and improves muscle function, and improves exercise performance.
L-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that plays a huge role in sugar and acid metabolism. It improves immunity; and provides energy for muscle tissue, brain, and the central nervous system. This is helpful in reducing the symptoms of fatigue and mild stress, and it might help get rid of the ugly face most of us make when we’re trying to bench 85lb.
It also enhances the intake of glutamine, and assists in muscle protein synthesis thus supporting muscle development.
L-Glutamine promotes muscle protein synthesis by maintaining a high nitrogen balance in the muscles. This prevents muscle breakdown and promotes body-fat reduction. It also boosts your immunity and enhances your digestive health.
(-)-Epicatechin improves exercise endurance capacity by improving muscle blood flow and vascular conductance. It also decreases arterial pressure thus improving cardiovascular function. Finally, Brute BCAA has revealed why gym rats are the friendliest people you’ll meet. A healthy heart must be it.
It also decreases myostatin and lowers cholesterol due to its natural antioxidant properties.
It is a natural muscle-building compound that promotes muscle protein synthesis. It also decreases cortisol (a stress hormone) thus allowing your body to recover faster. 5a-hydroxy-laxogenin also reduces muscle breakdown.
- Black Pepper Extract
I was as surprised as you are to find a spice listed on the Brute BCAA as an ingredient and not a condiment. But black pepper extract contains antioxidants which prevent damage from free radicals. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which reduce inflammation. Black pepper extract also improves the uptake and utilization of amino acids.
Brute BCAA by Killer Labz is designed to improve your workout performance and get the most from it. It ensures that you gain lean muscle mass, recover faster, get muscles that are more defined and toned, and acquire more strength and power. Here’s a kind reminder, resisting to work on your body does not count as resistance training.
