BCAA + Glutamine BCAA + Glutamine

BCAA + GLUTAMINE  by Scitec Nutrition is a liquid formula of high doses of amino acids in the form of shots. The ratio of branched-chain amino acids in this supplement which include leucine, isoleucine and valine is 2:1:1.  The addition of a high dose of glutamine enhances an anticatabolic effect of the supplement which also improves post-workout recovery and promotes muscle anabolism.

BCAAsamino acids which have a branched side chain. It is necessary to provide them with food and supplements because our body is not able to synthesise them itself. It is a group of three amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine which show a positive impact on muscle anabolism.

Along with other protein amino acids, they are an important building block for muscle proteins. This means that they are necessary for building muscle tissue in athletes.

Apart from this function, BCAAs inhibit also catabolic processes in the body. A dietary deficiency in amino acids forces the body to break down its own proteins to obtain them (catabolic process). Making up BCAA levels inhibits the utilisation of body proteins and improves anabolic processes.

During hard training sessions, the body uses up much leucine, isoleucine and valine. Because of that, it is vital to supplement these nutrients after a workout. In addition, BCAAs suppresses the activity of enzymes responsible for breaking down muscle proteins.

During physical activity, branched-chain amino acids may be used as an energy substrate when glycogen levels are seriously depleted. Low glycogen levels stimulates the enzyme BCAA transaminase which converts branched-chain amino acids into succinyl-CoA. It is an important substrate used in the Krebs cycle for energy production. BCAAs are a natural substitute for muscle glycogen.

A decrease in BCAA levels in the body is followed by the release of tryptophan into the brain. It is an amino acid which is a precursor of melatonin and serotonin production. The first compound is a hormone which synchronises the biological clock, helps fall asleep and improves the overall sleep quality. Serotonin is in turn a “happiness hormone”. However, when it is produced in a large amount after physical activity, it promotes sleepiness. This is another reason to take branched-chain amino acids after training. Changing the BCAA:tryptophan ratio in favour of this specific group of amino acids helps fight fatigue and post-workout sleepiness.

Leucin, which belongs to BCAA complex, is an important factor in promoting protein synthesis. Consuming 4 g of this amino acid helps reach the so-called leucine threshold.  This is the minimum amount which activates the mTOR kinase in the body. It promotes protein synthesis in the body. When it is combined with strength training, it encourages strongly muscle development.

The second amino acid from this group is isoleucine. Unlike leucine, it does not stimulate directly protein synthesis. Nonetheless, it protects muscles from catabolism which is due to the fact that it improves glucose uptake by muscle cells. This helps replenish glycogen levels quickly and effectively. Adequate levels of this polysaccharide in muscles inhibit breakdown processes of proteins which would be otherwise used in gluconeogenesis.

Valine is the last branched-chain amino acid. It is used in the body mainly as a substrate to replenish glycogen levels. Owing to that, it inhibits muscle catabolic processes and promotes post-workout recovery.

Glutamine is a vital protein amino acid which is responsible for normal homeostasis of muscle tissue. This arises from the fact that it has an anticatabolic effect. A deficiency of this amino acid can affect individuals on a reducing diet, vegans and vegetarians.

Normal glutamine levels reduce considerably leucine oxidation. This helps use it maximally. An anticatabolic impact is shown by the fact that the body does not need to break down its own proteins to meet the demand for leucine.

The body aims at maintaining stable glutamine levels. Because of that it converts other amino acids into glutamine in the case of its deficiency. It obtains them also by breaking down its own proteins.

In addition, glutamine aids in the regulation of blood sugar levels. It is a factor which prevents an increase in insulin resistance. Adequate glutamine intake reduces a leap in postprandial blood glucose levels and consequently inhibits excessive insulin secretion. 

Proper glutamine supplementation allows you to maintain healthy intestines. It facilitates the synthesis of proteins lining the walls of this organ. It improves intestinal function and is critical to normal absorption of nutrients and water. This contributes to improved recovery and body hydration and inhibits catabolic processes caused by nutrient deficiencies.

The supplement BCAA + GLUTAMINE is a quickly absorbed form of essential amino acids which helps replenish their levels fast after a workout. Adequate levels of these amino acids encourage muscle anabolism, inhibit catabolic processes and contribute to efficient post-workout recovery. The supplement is designed for individuals who want to quickly make up levels of branched-chain amino acids. What is more, it allows you to train more efficiently for a longer time because it delays the body’s fatigue.

BCAA

Information

BCAA are three essential amino acids having a side branched aliphatic chain (isoleucine, leucine, and valine) and a similar course of metabolic processes, occurring in the muscle tissue. In its natural form, they are found in high-protein animal foods (i.e. beef, milk proteins). BCAA have the anti-catabolic and anabolic potential. They support energy carriers during the energy crisis and affect the functioning of the nervous system (eliminate stress, reduce fatigue), hormone activity and kinases, which are responsible for the metabolism of proteins. In the sports supplementation they are used as supporting elements of exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and post-workout recovery; also as anti-catabolic and catalyst of anabolic changes. Taking BCAA after exercise almost immediately restores the levels of these amino acids in the blood (excluding liver) and supplies the muscle tissue. Leucine activates of mTOR kinases (starting anabolism of muscle proteins) and has the intensified effect with insulin, which acts on the PI3-kinase and protein kinase B. Branched amino acids chain BCAA, willingly used by strength, strength-endurance and endurance athletes, they are available in the form of single-component supplements, and advanced amino acid supplements, creatine, pre- and post- training stacks, and isotonic drinks.
Dosage: usually 1-2 grams of BCAA per 10 kg of body weight per day. Mainly before and after 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.


 

Isoleucine

Information

Isoleucine is an essential branched amino acid (BCAA), leucine-isomer. It has anti-catabolic action ( protects muscle against decay), glucogenic (an alternative energy source when the level of glucose after exercise decreases, helps for the regulation of blood glucose levels, reduces the deficiency of fatty acids), anti-catabolic (muscle protects against decay), reduces stress. It participates in the synthesis of proteins (including the synthesis of hemoglobin). It is an essential part of the regeneration of damaged tissues of the body, and after intense training. It occurs in products containing animal protein (meat and dairy products, eggs, dairy products) and plant (almonds, walnuts) and dietary supplements.
Isoleucine is applied with other branched chain amino acids: leucine, valine, and in the supplement complex type of BCAA, in the proportions: leucine: isoleucine: valine = 2: 1: 1. The supplements used in competitive sports requiring increased strength, the bigger share of isoleucine is used.
Dosage: No standard daily use. Frequently applied directly after the workout during the decrease of the glucose level of or at fatty acid deficiency.


 

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.


 

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.
