Maintenance support of muscle mass
BCAA Perform is the latest addition to the SIS range, offering a convenient way to support the maintenance of muscle mass. It contains 6g of BCAAs (3 g leucine, 1.5 g isoleucine and 1.5 g valine) in a 2:1:1 ratio, with an additional 5g of L-Glutamine and 1.5g of L-Arginine. B-vitamins may help to support the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, making this product the ideal drink to consume before, during or after exercise.
Helps to contribute to the growth of muscle mass
Flavoured Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) powder with additional L-Glutamine and L-Arginine. BCAAs are three essential amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) meaning that they must be obtained through the diet. The BCAAs are especially important as they activate (especially leucine) the process of muscle protein synthesis as well as contributing as the building blocks of new proteins formed in the recovery period after exercise. As such, they compromise around a third of the protein within our muscles and therefore help to contribute to the growth of muscle mass. In addition, the BCAAs are also used as energy source during endurance exercise, especially during high-intensity and carbohydrate restricted exercise (i.e. low carb training). L-Glutamine is the most abundant non-essential amino acid found in muscle tissue. During periods of prolonged and intense exercise, both blood and muscle stores of glutamine can become depleted in the post-exercise recovery period. Glutamine supplementation before and after exercise may therefore improve muscle, immune and gut function. L-Arginine is a non-essential amino acid that may help increase muscle blood flow to allow the greater delivery of nutrients to the working muscles.
Informed Sport Tested
BCAA Perform is tested under the Informed Sport Certification program. This approach involves testing every single batch of SIS finished product, which leaves the Company’s factory, screened against the 2017 World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) list. Banned substances including steroids are tested to the level of 10 Nanograms per gram, and stimulants to 100 Nanograms per gram. Batches (sampled at the beginning, during and end of each product batch) receive the recognised and respected Informed Sport* certificate and SIS provides the documentation to athletes on request.
