What BCAAs can do for you
BCAAs help increase muscle size and strength, protect hard-earned muscle from breakdown, reduce muscle soreness and fatigue, increase athletic endurance and enhance recovery.*
Help build muscle size and strength
A study of experienced bodybuilders who took BCAAs 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after a workout showed greater weight gains than the placebo group. They increased muscle mass in the legs and arms while the placebo group showed no gains in those areas. The BCAA group also showed strength gains in the squat and bench press.*
May activate muscle-building
New research shows that L-leucine may act as a switch that turns on the muscle-building process.*
Protect against muscle breakdown
BCAAs are unique in that they can be burned by the body for energy and potentially preserve hard-earned muscle, which is important for those who are dieting or restricting calories.*
Help reduce muscle soreness
A study of men and women who took 5 grams of BCAAs 15 minutes before a series of squat exercises (7 sets of 20 per set) showed they experienced significantly less muscle soreness and fatigue during the 4 days post-workout compared to placebo.*
The one-time ingestion of 5g of BCAAs taken 15 minutes before exercise reduced muscle soreness and muscle fatigue in men and women for several days after exercise.* Study participants used the same 2:1:1 BCAA ratio found in Fitness Labs BCAAFit 5000. Exercise consisted of 7 sets of 20 squats per set, with 3-minute intervals between sets designed to induce a state of overtraining.
Enhance endurance and recovery
Another study of individuals undergoing 4 weeks of high-intensity resistance training designed to induce a state of overtraining resulted in no performance declines and lower markers of muscle damage in the BCAA group, while the placebo group experienced a significant decline in performance.*
Choose BCAAFit capsules or powder!
Both have the same 2:1:1 ratio of BCAAs (L-Leucine : L-Isoleucine : L-Valine).
BCAAFit 2000 capsules provide 500 mg of BCAAs per capsule or 2 grams (2,000 mg) per 4 capsules. This form is super convenient when heading to the gym straight from work and when you don't have time to mix up our powder version. There's also the advantage of avoiding the naturally bitter taste of BCAAs.
On the other hand, our BCAAFit 5000 powder is slightly more economical since there's no encapsulation involved. The powder is straight, unflavored, unsweetened BCAAs, but it's instantized with a small amount of lecithin so it mixes well. Many people will mix it right into their preworkout drink or mix it into a small amount of juice to mask the somewhat bitter taste. A scoop is enclosed that accurately weighs out 5 grams (5,000 mg) of BCAAs to make it easy to measure out the right dose. Each container (340 grams) provides 62 servings.
