BCAA Complex BCAA Complex

Scitec BCAA Complex is a dietary supplement containing BCAA branched amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine) with the addition of L-alanine, L-glutamine and vitamin B6. Taking the preparation accelerates the post-workout recovery process and enables building the muscle mass more effectively.

The athletes are constantly looking for better ways to improve their performance, and branched-chain amino acid supplementation (BCAA) brings potential benefits in this matter. Based on many studies, it has been found that taking BCAA can lead to increase in the rate of the muscle protein synthesis and the lean body mass, reduction of the body proteins breakdown, the fatigue and post-workout muscle pain, which can allow to recover faster to optimize sports results.

The BCAA includes 3 exogenous amino acids, including leucine, valine and isoleucine. They are characterized by a specific structure and a different metabolism occurring not in the liver, but in the muscle tissue. In case of an energy deficit, the body uses them to produce glucose. Numerous studies confirm that the increase in BCAA in the blood can protect the muscle protein from a breakdown.

Muscle fiber synthesis (MPS) is regulated by the mTOR pathway, which is the main mechanism responsible for the muscle growth. The dysfunction of this pathway causes a decrease in MPS impeding the growth of muscle tissue. Studies which analyze the molecular mechanisms regulating the MPS in response to a BCAA supplementation and a resistance exercise provide an evidence that the BCAA consumption, in contrast to placebo, increases the mTOR kinase activity and thus contributes to an increased muscle fiber synthesis.

To develop, the athletes need to obey the regularity and frequency of the training, and when performing the intensive exercises very often describe the sensation of the muscle pain or fatigue after their completion. It is a natural part of recovery, but it can be a problem for everyone who would like to accelerate the pace of adaptation. Many studies describe the beneficial effects of BCAA on the muscle regeneration. BCAA supplementation during an exercise can limit the post-workout muscle pain and reduce the fatigue.

L-alanine is an important substrate in the gluconeogenesis process and plays an important role in the glucose-alanine cycle which is the process where nitrogen is transferred between the liver and the muscle tissue. Proper availability of alanine positively affects the course of the energy processes, especially during a physical exertion, which influences the process of a tissue regeneration and reconstruction.

L-glutamine supports the development and maintenance of the muscle tissue in the case of intense periods of training and disorders that cause wasting of the body, including the muscle atrophy. In addition, it acts as the main source of the energy for enterocytes - small intestinal cells, in the case of a low glucose availability, it can be a spare fuel for the brain and supports the body in removing ammonia which is a byproduct of the protein breakdown.

Vitamin B6 is involved in glycogenesis and glycogenolysis, has a positive effect on normal muscle contractions, is required in the formation of hemoglobin, is responsible for the proper functioning of the nervous system and participates in the formation of antibodies what increases the body's immunity.

In summary, Scitec BCAA Complex is a preparation that is a perfect supplement to the diet of all physically active people and professional athletes. A regular intake of the product promotes the building of the muscle tissue, improves the regeneration and adds energy during a hard, long training.

Leucine

Information

Leucine is an essential amino acid, one of the three branched chain amino acids, ketogenic, its isomer is isoleucine. It affects the secretion of anabolic hormones (insulin, combined carbohydrates), acts on enzymes (mTOR) starting the process of muscle protein synthesis and controlling its course. Protein synthesis by leucine is affecting the development of bones, muscles and skin. It reduces the fat tissue. Without the availability of leucine, protein synthesis is impossible. It naturally occurs in animal products (such as eggs, meat, dairy and fish), plant origin, and as a post-training supplements, BCAA, EAA, no-boosters, creatine stacks, carbohydrate supplements. Ir is also in the form of mono-preparation supplements. It is one of the most important amino acids for the athlete's body, basically in every sports discipline.
Dosage: The demand is 5-10 g / 24h, dosage pre- and post-workout and in the morning after waking up.


 

Valine

Information

Valine – is a branched essential amino acid, indispensible for the functioning of the nervous system (receiving of sensory information), involved in muscle protein synthesis and energy generation. Administration of additional doses of valine before exercise (or immediately after) has anti-catabolic effect, protecting the proteins and allowing them to rebuild. It is slightly stimulatory (delays symptoms of fatigue during workout), affecting the level and relations of neurotransmitters. It helps to protect the liver. It stimulates an increase in strength and muscle mass, participates in the reduction of body fat. BCAA, EAA, and other mixtures of amino acid supplementation, protein and protein supplements and carbohydrate-stacks, brings positive results in strength and endurance sports.
Valine deficiency can occur in case of increased energy needs of the body,
as the result of stress and too much stress load.


 

Alanine

Information


Alanine is an endogenous amino acid (i.e. having the ability to synthesize the human body other amino acids and pyruvate), building up protein. It has a key role in the transport of nitrogen between the muscles and the liver (i.e. Cahill cycle). It allows to transform glucose in non-sugar compounds. During prolonged exercise it enhances metabolism. It occurs in products of animal origin (meat, dairy, eggs) and vegetable origins (legumes, peas). It is used in the form of amino acid supplements in pre- and post-workout preparations. It complements the BCAA. Increased use of supplements with alanine is required in athletic training when high strength and endurance is required (e.g. weights lifting athletes marathon runners etc.).

 

L-glutamine

Information

L-glutamine - amino acid building endogenous proteins, glutamic acid amide. In the human body it is responsible for the synthesis of proteins, acid-base balance and removing ammonia outside of the organism. With the shortage of energy taken from the muscle tissue, glutamine with alanine participate in the process of gluconeogenesis, and participate in the production of glucose substrate. L-glutamine has a direct impact on the proper functioning of the digestive system and immunity of the organism. Participates in the synthesis of one of the most powerful antioxidant - glutathione. It has anti-catabolic potential. It is found naturally in foods of animal and vegetable origin and high protein supplements. Used as mono-preparation or multi-component amino-acid supplements and supplements enhancing biological recovery after exercises, often in combination with BCAA.
Dosage: 5-20 g per day (portioned during the day, and after training and waking up). The minimum dose used in supplementation is 2-15g per 1 serving.


 

Vitamin B6

Information

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
