NTBCAA120

BCAA 8:1:1

BCAA's or Branched-Chain Amino Acids are essential nutrients that the body obtains from proteins found in food. The three essential BCAAs, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, are amino acids that the body cannot synthesize on its own and therefore must get through dietary sources.

Even though there are about 20 amino acids that the muscles use for growth, the BCAA's comprise roughly a third of the amino acids within muscle tissue. So if muscle growth is your goal, BCAA’s are a must. These amino acids also speed up muscle recovery.

Available in a pot of 120 (30 servings) and 300 capsules (75 servings).

  • High Leucine
  • Ratio 8-1-1
  • Increases protein synthesis
  • Increases muscle strength
  • Anti-catabolic
  • Speeds up recovery
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Increases endurance
  • 800mg leucine + 100mg iso-leucine + 100mg valine = 1 capsule

 


  • 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.

  • L-Leucine, capsule: gelatine (colorant: titanium chloride), L-Isoleucine, L-Valine.

    Allergen information

    Allergen-free. Manufactured in a facility that processes milk, soy, shellfish, egg, tree nuts and wheat.

    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.
