Olimp BCAA Mega Caps is a dietary supplement containing branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) which is a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. BCAA supplements are widely consumed to accelerate muscle growth and improve exercise performance. They can also help in losing weight and reduce fatigue after exercise. The product was enriched with the addition of vitamin B6.
BCAAs are essential amino acids, because unlike endogenous amino acids, the body can not produce them and that is why it is so important supply them with the diet. They constitute a large part of the total amino acid pool of the body, which is about 35-40% of all essential amino acids present in the body and about 14-18% of those present in the muscles. Of these, leucine has the greatest impact on the body's ability to build muscle proteins, and isoleucine and valine appear to be more effective at producing energy and regulating blood sugar levels.
Unlike other amino acids, BCAA metabolism occurs mainly in the muscles, not in the liver. For this reason, they are believed to play a key role in energy production during the exercise. The body can use them as a building block for protein and muscle, they can also take part in regulating blood sugar levels by keeping sugar stores in the liver and muscles and stimulating cells to take sugar from the bloodstream. What is more, BCAAs can help reduce the feeling of tiredness during exercise.
Increase in muscle mass
Studies show that BCAA, mainly leucine, activates the enzymes responsible for building muscle. The anabolic effect of leucine is possible via the mTOR pathway, the aim of which is to induce the synthesis of muscle proteins. In addition, proteins involved in the breakdown of muscle tissue appear to be suppressed after an intake of BCAAs, which may be an indirect mechanism that allows the growth of muscle mass.
Taking BCAA can help reduce physical and mental fatigue. Studies in humans have shown that people who received BCAA during exercise (in contrast to the placebo group) were less tired and could exercise much longer. It is worth mentioning that BCAAs are more effective in reducing exercise fatigue in less-trained people.
Reduction of muscle soreness
The results of scientific research indicate that taking BCAA causes a decrease in the concentration of intramuscular enzymes produced as a result of prolonged physical activity, mainly lactate dehydrogenase, the presence of which indicates muscle damage. This observation suggests that BCAA supplementation can reduce muscle damage associated with endurance exercise and support the reduction of muscle pain after exertion.
Vitamin B6 participates in the maintenance of normal energy metabolism and in the transformation of amino acids. What is more, its addition in the preparation is caused by the properties supporting the proper functioning of the nervous system, regulating the hormonal balance and limiting fatigue.
In summary, Olimp BCAA Mega Caps is a dietary supplement that can act as an ideal supplement to any diet for all physically active people and professional athletes. Regular supplementation with the preparation promotes the formation of muscle tissue, improves recovery, reduces muscle ache and fatigue and adds energy during long and intense workouts.
