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).
WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE
ELLAKAI’s exclusive PADDLE, PADDLE, PADDLE!!!! Protein Isolate is designed to help you build lean efficient muscle, recover faster, and surf/train stronger and longer.
Whey protein isolates are the purest form of whey and the main ingredient in ELLAKAI Protein. Each serving provides essential amounts rapidly digesting whey protein isolate with low levels of fat, cholesterol, lactose and other stuff you cant do without when looking to increase your strength performance focus and recovery.
When most people think of whey protein powder, they instantly think of muscle building. After all, in order to generate more muscle mass in the body, protein is the biggest requirement.
If you fail to get in all the protein you need, you are not going to be successful with the goal of building more lean effective muscle mass .
While you don’t need hundreds of grams of protein a day like some people believe to build muscle, you definitely do need to get in enough.
Something that often gets overlooked however is all the other benefits that whey protein powder has to offer.
Whey protein isolate contains the greatest protein concentration coming in at 90-95%, while the rest of the whey protein powders range from 25-89% total protein content.
Whey protein isolate also contains the lowest level of lactose, so anyone who is currently lactose intolerant will definitely benefit from this factor. It tends to be lowest in fat as well, so really one of the best well rounded proteins available.
One advantage to including whey protein in your surf/training plan is the support for a healthy immune system. Immunoglobulin is an antibody that is found in whey protein powder in concentrations of as much as 10-15%
