 ISS Complete BCAA Power

Description


ISS' Complete BCAA Power provides a potent blend of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) for maximum muscle regeneration, immunity and performance. This high potency formula contains naturally occurring BCAAs leucine, valine and isoleucine as well as immune-supporting vitamin C and amino-supporting vitamin B6. BCAAs are essential amino acid that can only be derived from protein foods (such as red meat and dairy products) or dietary supplements.


Muscle fibers are made up of branched chain amino acids. BCAAs provide muscle energy and repair muscle tissue. They also play an important role in mental and physical performance. Vitamin B6 supports BCAA production and breakdown in the muscle tissue. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that neutralizes harmful free radicals (toxic molecules that cause damage to cells) associated with the development of degenerative diseases, heart disease, cancer and aging. This water-soluble vitamin helps keep the immune system functioning optimally.


Independent studies suggest that BCAAs can help athletes improve strength, endurance and immunity during training. In one study, researchers gave elite athletes either 6 grams of BCAA daily or a placebo (inactive pill) for one month before competing, then 3 grams daily for one week following the day of competition. They found that BCAAs restored depleted amino acid levels (including glutamine) and immune cofactors that commonly occur in athletes following intense training. There was also a 30 percent decrease in symptoms of infection during the time of supplementation.


Taking a maximum strength BCAA supplement such as Dymatize's Super Amino 4800 delivers the nutrients you need for optimum muscle regeneration, immunity and mental and athletic performance.



Pros


ISS' Complete BCAA Power is one of highest potency BCAA supplements on the market. ISS provides 3,000 mg of BCAAs per serving, along with an effective blend of vitamins C and B6. Since the body can't produce its own BCAAs, athletes, body builders and fitness enthusiasts will find BCAA supplementation to be especially beneficial.


Studies have found that the nutrients in Complete BCAA Power have numerous benefits including:

  • Promotes muscle regeneration and growth
  • Restores depleted amino acid levels following exercise
  • Boosts immunity
  • Supports mental performance
  • Enhances physical performance

Cons


At supplemental and dietary levels, vitamin C and vitamin B6 are nontoxic. However, neurological side effects can occur with a vitamin B6 dosage higher than 200 mg. Vitamin C may produce a laxative effect and stomach upset in certain people.


People with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), depression, Reye's Syndrome, heart, kidney or liver disease should not supplement with amino acids without consulting a physician.
