About 7g pure amino acids, of which: 6g BCAA With vitamin B6 that helps the healthy metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins (amino acids) Sugar-free Easy to dispense No preservatives Aspartame-free Wide range of packaging sizes and flavours MUSCLE BUILDING AND ENERGISING BioTechUSA’s flavoured BCAA Zero amino acid powder contains 2:1:1 ratio of leucine, isoleucine and valine amino acids that greatly enhance each other’s effect on building muscles and energising, and they have a natural, specific proportion in muscles. We have also added vitamin B6 to the product, which contributes to normal protein and glycogen metabolism, as well as to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. WHEN WE SAY ZERO WE MEAN ZERO BCAA Zero is an amino acid product in powder form, suitable for any form of training, in which we simply phased out everything that was unnecessary: it’s free of gluten, lactose, aspartame, preservatives or sugar. Per serving (9 g): 3,000 mg L-leucine 1,500 mg L-isoleucine 1,500 mg L-valine 700 mg L-glutamine 2 mg vitamin B6 Who is BCAA Zero recommended to? both men and women all kinds of training for quick and low-calorie pre-workout amino acid supply for retaining muscles during prolonged training for people on a diet for (fitness) competition preparation WHY DO YOU NEED AMINO ACIDS? Amino acids are the building blocks of one of our fundamental nutrients, proteins, commonly found everywhere in human body. There are some amino acids that the human body can produce (non-essential amino acids), whereas the amino acids that belong to the other group (essential amino acids) are taken in with food. From all the different amino acids, only 20 contribute to the shaping of the structure of proteins. Amino acids are vital to all bodily functions such as digestion, liver function or wound healing. Amino acids maintain skin, ligaments, muscles, tendons, internal organs, glands, hair and nails. They also contribute to the production of hormones, neurotransmission compounds and enzymes. Besides, they also serve as a source of energy, as well as a carbohydrate and lipid-producing nutrient. The richest source of basic amino acids are foods of animal origin, and plant-derived foods often do not contain all the amino acids. BRANCHED-CHAIN AMINO ACIDS BCAAs, that is, branched-chain amino acids, consist of three amino acids: valine, isoleucine and leucine, all of which are especially important for building muscles. Valine is a source of energy for the muscles, and it also greatly contributes to cell metabolism. Isoleucine is an amino acid required for hemoglobin production, and it also contributes to recovery. Leucine contributes to the recovery of bones, skin and muscles, and it is also capable of increasing protein absorption in itself. The three amino acids constituting BCAAs greatly enhance each other’s effect on building muscles and energising, and they have a natural, specific proportion in muscles. Like all BioTechUSA products, BCAA Zero consists of safe and carefully selected ingredients.
