BCAA's make a great energy source for working muscles because of their unique metabolism. This can have a positive impact on performance. Athletes use BCAAs to improve exercise performance and reduce protein and muscle breakdown during intense exercise.
BCAAs are not only used as energy source, but they also increase fat oxidation in glycogen. This allows athletes to train harder without fatigue due to higher energy consumption. This goes for both high intensity training as well as endurance training.
Another way that BCAA's can enhance performance is through their ability to spare glycogen during training. Found as stored carbohydrates within muscle tissue and the liver, glycogen is the favored fuel source for working muscles engaged in high intensity exercise. This makes glycogen availability and preservation vitally important if you wish to continue to train hard for longer periods of time.

Food supplements cannot replace a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed the daily recommended amount. Keep out of the reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place. Always keep tightly sealed.
The ideal time to take BCAA is during workouts, both pre-workout or post-workout, to fuel your body and repair your muscles. For best results, we recommend taking 2 tablets with 200 ml of water 2 times a day, before and after your training session.
