Olimp BCAA Xplode is a dietary supplement containing branched chain amino-acids (BCAA) enriched with L-glutamine and vitamin B6. The preparation is designed to support physical activity by stimulating anabolism and improving the regenerative processes of the body.
Turnover of muscle proteins and protein intake in the diet
Muscle proteins are in a constant movement, which means that the synthesis of new proteins occurs while other proteins are degraded. Muscle anabolism with regards to training does not have a specific definition but generally refers to the circumstances in which the rate of muscle protein synthesis exceeds the rate of their breakdown, resulting in muscle mass gain. It is also officially believed that muscle fiber anabolism occurs as a result of the increase in muscle protein synthesis, but it can actually also arise from the inhibition of muscle protein breakdown.
Muscle proteins are composed of twenty different amino acids, nine of which are exogenous amino acids (EAA). Since they can not be produced by the body in physiologically significant amounts, they should be key ingredients of a balanced diet. The EAA consists of BCAAs, or branched-chain amino acids containing leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
Purpose of BCAA
It is believed that BCAA supplementation before, after and during an exercise exerts a beneficial effect on reducing muscle damage induced by a physical effort and promoting muscle protein synthesis. Muscle damage causes the delayed appearance of muscular pain, which occurs 24-48 hours after an intense physical activity and may inhibit sports progress.
In the light of the latest scientific reports, BCAA supplementation restores plasma glutamine concentration and proliferation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells after an intense physical exercise. In addition, it may affect post-workout cytokine production leading to a change in the immune response of lymphocytes. According to these findings, BCAAs may be considered as a supplement favorably regulating the body's immunity and muscle recovery in response to sporting events.
Leucine is not only a precursor to muscle protein synthesis, but it can also play the role of regulator of intracellular signaling pathways involved in protein synthesis. One would, therefore, expect that leucine alone would be more effective than the combination of all the amino acids contained in BCAAs. However, that is not the case because there are significant limitations resulting from the supplementation of leucine alone.
The result of taking leucine alone is the reduction of the stimulation range of proteins due to the lack of availability of other key amino acids, including valine and isoleucine. In addition, elevation of plasma leucine alone activates the pathway that metabolizes both valine and isoleucine, resulting in a reduction in their plasma concentration. In conclusion, the low availability of valine and isoleucine limits the rate of muscle protein synthesis.
The mechanisms discussed above exhaust the topic of superiority of the BCAA blend over leucine alone. The formulation contains the best proportion of ingredients in the ratio of 2:1:1 in favor of leucine, which ensures the effective action of the preparation.
L-glutamine supplementation has a beneficial effect on the body's immunity and generates a positive nitrogen balance, and the need for this amino acid significantly increases in periods of intense physical activity.
Vitamin B6 is involved in the transformation of amino acids and maintaining proper energy metabolism. In addition, it supports the proper functioning of the nervous system, normalizes hormonal activity and supports the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
In conclusion, Olimp BCAA Xplode is a preparation intended for use by physically active people as to their training effectiveness. The product stimulates the anabolism of muscle tissue and increases the regenerative capacity of the body contributing to the improvement of sports results.
BCAA supplementation is aimed at people systematically practicing sports, both recreationally and professionally. BCAA preparations are used in every kind of sport, starting with bodybuilding and resistance sports, through endurance, speed and team disciplines, ending with gymnastics. Effective doses used by competitors range from 7 to 20 g per day. The best time to take BCAA is before or after a workout and in the morning on an empty stomach.
