BCAA's (Branched Chain Amino Acids) + Glutamine
What is AMMO™?
AMMO™ Is a scientific blend containing the proven, most effective ratio of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) and Glutamine. It is formulated to enhance energy, improve recovery, delay fatigue and decrease muscle loss. The BCAA’s (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine), make up over 35% of the amino acids in skeletal muscle and are directly metabolized in muscle tissue during exercise. BCAA’s along with Glutamine are the main amino acids involved in regulating protein synthesis.
BCAA’s and Glutamine are amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks that form body and dietary proteins. There are 22 different amino acids that occur in nature. They are typically grouped into two categories, essential and non-essential. Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body and must be provided by diet or supplements. Non-essential amino acids can be made by the liver from other amino acids. The BCAA’s (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine) are “Essential” and must be provided in our diet or though supplementation. Glutamine has traditionally been considered a non-essential amino acid, but current research suggests that it may be "conditionally essential" under certain metabolic conditions and stresses, as well as exercise. Conditionally essential means that in certain instances (when the body is under extreme stress, such as during exercise) the body may demand so much glutamine that it cannot produce enough to meet its needs. At times like these it would become essential, and must be taken into the body through your diet or glutamine supplements.
Why use BCAA’s & Glutamine?
If your goal is to gain muscle, increase strength, power, peak performance, growth hormone levels, prevent muscle loss while dieting, or just improve your overall physical fitness, then supplementing with BCAA’s and Glutamine can help. Because of the important role that they play in all of these processes, it is essential to keep your BCAA’s and Glutamine levels elevated. Intense exercise, dieting, stress or disease can significantly decrease Glutamine levels and deplete the muscles of their valuable BCAA’s. This can lead to decreased performance and muscle loss. Supplementing with BCAA’s and Glutamine while dieting or during intense training (aerobic and anaerobic), can help dramatically. BCAA’s and Glutamine have anabolic and anti-catabolic (muscle protein sparing) effects, promote nitrogen retention, and enhances muscle glycogen synthesis. Enhance your training and nutrition program with BCAA’s and Glutamine!
