PhD Nutrition Intra BCAA+ is an Intra workout product designed to help limit the breakdown of muscle tissue (catabolism) and maintain adequate hydration levels; as the name suggests, theyre best consumed during (and/or just prior to) your training session. This product contains carefully selected ingredients, offering nutritional support to all active individuals. Also features the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine and valine in a 4:1:1 ratio. These play an important role in muscle protein synthesis especially when training in a fasted state, first thing in the morning. It also contains a host of non-essential aminos derived from premium grade, hydrolysed whey protein. Glutamine, a conditionally essential amino acid is found abundantly in skeletal muscle; it also aids the healthy function of the immune system and gut.
