BCAA HMB by Bodyscience
Combat the tissue ravaging effects of catabolism allowing you to build lean muscle faster. BSc BCAAHMB complex has been developed to provide athletes with cutting edge anti-catabolic muscle tissue support. BCAAHMB is a precise blend of the three branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) –Leucine, Valine and Isoleucine combined with Hydroxy-β-Methylbutyrate (HMB), providing you with the essential nutrients to spare muscle amino acid reserves and develop lean muscle.
The anti-catabolic properties of this formulation are particularly beneficial in maintaining muscle tissue during times of physical stress. Supplementation with BCAA’s and HMB can enhance muscle gain and exercise performance.
The branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) leucine acts as both a ‘trigger' for the initiation of protein synthesis, and as a substrate for newly synthesized protein.
- As a BCAA, leucine can be metabolized within skeletal muscle, leaving open the possibility that leucine metabolites might possess anabolic properties.
- One metabolite in particular, β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (HMB), has shown positive effects on lean body mass and strength following exercise, and in disease-related muscle wasting, yet its impact on acute human muscle protein turnover is undefined.
- We report here that HMB stimulates muscle protein synthesis to a similar extent to leucine. HMB was also found to decrease muscle protein breakdown.
- Our observation that HMB enhances muscle protein anabolism may partly (or wholly) underlie its pre-defined anabolic/anti-catabolic supplemental efficacy in humans.
What are BCAA’s and why combine it with HMB?
BCAA's are the essential aminos Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. The combination of these three amino acids makes up approximately 1/3 of skeletal muscle tissue in the human body. BCAAs play a very important role in protein synthesis (the production of proteins in cells from amino acids to build muscle). HMB is a metabolite of the branched chain amino acid, Leucine, and plays a role in protein synthesis. It is naturally produced in the human body in low levels, but as a dietary supplement it’s said to promote muscle mass and give support to muscle recovery. By combining BCAA’s and HMB, BSc have formulated the ultimate anti-catabolic formula for athletes to improve lean muscle mass and strength.
Why Supplement with BCAA HMB?
Generally, after a session of resistance training the body is in a catabolic state (the breaking down of muscle tissue) with a protein synthesis deficit. This is because post exercise the MAPK signalling pathway (the body’s own way to signal muscle growth) is activated. When adequate amounts of BCAAs and HMB are ingested post workout, the body is placed in a greater state of hypertrophy with a positive amount of protein synthesis. This is extremely important for athletes because it will decrease recovery time, as it increases the rate at which lean body mass is gained.
BCAA HMB from Bodyscience is great for anyone who works out frequently and wants to preserve lean muscle while preventing catabolism. BCAAHMB would also be suitable to anyone recovering from an injury or post surgery to help maintain muscle mass and improve immunity
2-4 Capsules 20 minutes before your workout, or / and an additional serve of 2 capsules during the day where you feel the need to replenish Amino Stores - For example after long periods without food or during morning fasted cardio. As usual please refer to the bottle for reccomended dosages and consult a health care professional should you have any concerns upon or before consumption.
