Branch chain amino acids (BCAA’s), valine, leucine, and isoleucine, make up approximately 1/3 of muscle protein.. BCAA’s reduce muscle fatigue, speed recovery, decrease the loss of other amino acids from muscle during exercise and help the body absorb protein.
ELLAKAI BCAA is an amino acid supplement that utilizing SPF technology (SPEED POWER and FLOW) . This is a bonded chain of 3 key amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine which act as a better delivery system for faster absorption. For you, this means a faster & more efficient recovery. ELLAKAI’s BCAA supports the decrease of protein catabolism, or breakdown of protein, for preserving lean muscle mass. Keeping you surfing longer surfing stronger.
The branched chain amino acids found in ELLAKAI’s BCAA (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) cannot be produced naturally in the body – therefore we have to supplement with them in order to enhance protein synthesis, increase muscle growth and muscle repair/recovery over time. The SPF technology (SPEED POWER and FLOW) takes the 3 amino acids, concentrates them, and bonds them together to maximize muscle recovery, lean muscle building, and enhanced onset time (which means it kicks in faster!).
BCAAs have even more positive benefits than reduced breakdown and increased protein synthesis. They might also help improve workout intensity! BCAAs compete with the amino acid tryptophan for entry into the brain, where tryptophan can be converted to the neurotransmitter serotonin.
During exercise, serotonin levels rise and can (among other things) increase the perception of fatigue—that means a less intense/focused surf/training for you.
BCAA supplementation reduces the amount of tryptophan that enters the brain, and therefore reduces the amount of serotonin produced. This might allow you to surf/train harder, longer.
Branched Chain Amino Acids are among the most beneficial and effective supplements in any sports nutrition program.
Branch Chain Amino Acids are the “Building Blocks” of the body. They make up 35% of your muscle mass and must be present for molecular growth and development to take place. Eight are essential (cannot be manufactured by the body) the rest are non-essential (can be manufactured by the body with proper nutrition).
