Description

Building muscle is like building a house. Obviously, time and effort play a big role but so do materials. You can’t build a mansion from a wagon full of bricks, and you can’t have epic mass without a substantial amount of muscle building blocks – amino acids. The branched-chain amino acids are unique because they are both the material and the signal for building muscle, and the high levels of BCAAs in BCAA Revolution NRG maximally stimulate protein synthesis while the other ingredients make this amino formula the best on the market!

Branched Chain Amino Acids – The BCAAs are the functional components of protein – the reason protein builds muscle. Isolating them gives you all the anabolic power without the calories while reducing gastrointestinal stress.
Glutamine Peptides – Glutamine is used in numerous bodily processes, including muscle anabolism, gluconeogenesis, nutrient absorption, and immunity.
Beta-Alanine – Buffers blood acids to squeeze out more reps and enhance endurance.
L-Carnitine Tartrate and Glycocarn – Without Carnitine, fats cannot be metabolized. With two different forms, fat metabolism is enhanced while simultaneously reducing muscle damage and promoting recovery!
Caffeine Anhydrous – Enhances focus, boosts aerobic capacity, and promotes fat-burning!

If you want to get big, you need to get some BCAAs. BCAA Revolution NRG gives you all that and more. Keep your body in an anabolic state, and keep pushing your limits in the gym. Recovery, energy, and performance – BCAA Revolution NRG does it all!

Ingredient Profile

MUSCLE PRESERVATION MATRIX

10:1:1 Instantiated Branch Chain Amino Acid Complex (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine):

This ratio refers to the amount of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine that are in each scoop of BCAA Revolution.

  • A 10:1:1 ratio is a Leucine loaded matrix with 10x the amount of Leucine as compared to the Isoleucine and Valine.
  • Leucine is the most vital building block of your muscles in the BCAA complex.
  • A study done in 2009 found that subjects who supplemented with BCAAs while following an 8-week resistance training program had a greater decrease in body fat, an increase in lean mass, and greater strength gains on the bench press and squat compared to the non-BCAA group.

L-Taurine:

Taurine, has a myriad of benefits. From helping the body to metabolize fat, improving insulin sensitivity, raising testosterone levels, as an antioxidant, higher performance and quicker recovery during athletic training and increasing cardiovascular health… it goes without saying that Taurine is a great ingredient to have in your wheelhouse

  • Zhang et al. (2004) found that individuals who supplemented with taurine for 1 week before an exhaustive exercise bout significantly improved time to exhaustion, VO2 max, and maximal workload. It also decreased exercise induced DNA damage.

Glutamine and Glutamine Peptides:

L-glutamine is the most prevalent free amino acid in plasma and one of the most prevalent found in muscle tissue.

  • L-Glutamine stimulates muscle protein synthesis and is effective at replenishing energy for muscles (glycogen) after exhaustive exercise which may lead to quicker recovery.
  • L-Glutamine may also increase cell volumization (hydration) and lead to increases in muscle hypertrophy.
  • L-Glutamine may also reduce protein breakdown and support immune function.
  • Lehmkuhl et al. (2003) found individual supplementing with glutamine and creatine monohydrate for 8 weeks increased body mass, lean body mass and initial rate of power production compared to placebo.

ENERGY REPLENISHMENT MATRIX

Beta-Alanine:

Beta Alanine is an amino acid that is used to enhance muscular endurance. Reports of increased rep range are common. Also, the benefit is highly noticeable in moderate to high intensity cardio.

  • Beta-Alanine’s effectiveness comes through boosting the synthesis of carnosine. Carnosine acts as an intra muscular buffer to keep the pH from dipping too low during a workout. To keep muscular strength through a workout, you need to have your pH levels optimal. If they drop too low, you have significantly less strength and fatigue quicker.
  • Beta-Alanine synthesizes to carnosine which helps keep your pH levels in check by absorbing positive hydrogen molecules (H+) that are produced during periods of heavy exercise. By absorbing the H+ produced by strenuous exercise, your muscular pH levels are kept at an optimal level which will allow you to train harder and longer!
  • A recent meta-analysis confirmed the ergogenic effect of beta-alanine, showing a 2.85% increase in exercise performance compared to placebo when dosed at ~2/grams daily.

L-Carnitine Tartrate:

L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is derived from lysine and methionine and is essential for transporting long-chain fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria for subsequent fat breakdown and energy production.

  • L-Carnitine has also been shown to reduce exercise-induced muscle damage, muscular fatigue, and reduce soreness.
  • A study conducted by Volek et al. (2002) found that supplementation with L-Carnitine daily for one week in healthy resistance trained men was able to reduce markers of muscle damage after weight lifting. It was also discovered that biomarkers of oxidative damage reduced to baseline sooner than placebo.
  • Ho et al. (2010) discovered that middle aged males and females who supplemented with L-Carnitine over a 24-day period experienced less muscle damage and soreness following exercise and had less oxidative markers in serum after exercise.

GlycoCarn® (Glycine Propionyl-L-Carnitine HCL):

Glycocarn is a highly bioavailable form of Carnitine. Carnitine is crucial in muscle function by regulating energy flow across the cell membranes during strenuous activity.

  • Glycocarn can help increase nitric oxide levels. Increasing Nitric Oxide helps blood flow to organs and muscles and optimizes oxygen and nutrient delivery to the muscles.
  • All this can help to increase aerobic power, stamina, endurance, and recovery.
  • Jacobs et al. (2009) discovered that resistance trained males who supplemented with Glycocarn 90 minutes before exercise were able to increase peak power production (2-15%) and decrease lactic acid accumulation (15-17%).

Caffeine Anhydrous:

Caffeine Anhydrous is simply caffeine with no water (around .05%). This has been shown to make caffeine anhydrous more potent because the body will absorb it more readily.

  • Although caffeine can affect a wide variety of motor and mental functions it is most commonly used to improve endurance exercise, focus and cognitive performance, and improve energy levels.
  • Caffeine has also been shown to have a thermogenic effect (heating/calorie burning) at rest and may increase the use of fats for fuel during exercise.
  • According to the research higher doses of caffeine, in the 250-450mg range, are needed to provide an ergogenic benefit.
  • In a study conducted by Astorino et al. (2010), active men given caffeine before resistance training were able to increase maximal torque, power, and volume by 5-8%.
FAQs

Q: What is the best way to take BCAA NRG REVOLUTION?
A: As a dietary supplement, mix one scoop (15grams) with approximately 10-12 oz. of water during and immediately following your workout. For optimal results, mix 2 scoops (30grams) with 20-24 oz. of water and sip regularly throughout the day.

Q: Can I use BCAA NRG REVOLUTION in place of my usual pre-workout when I don’t need as much of a “kick”?
A: Absolutely. BCAA NRG REVOLUTION contains ergogenic ingredients such as beta alanine, BCAAs, caffeine, and glycocarn which can boost workout performance and provide a “less intense” experience compared to a traditional pre-workout.

Q: What other MuscleSport products would you recommend stacking with BCAA NRG REVOLUTION?
A: For optimal performance and recovery we recommend stacking BCAA NRG REVOLUTION with our protein powders, creatine products, and pump formulas.
