BCAA Revolution is a leucine-loaded and glutamine-fortified amino acid powerhouse! At a 10:1:1 ratio, the most important amino acid necessary for muscle growth, leucine, is packed into each scoop to optimize the anabolic environment of your muscles!
Add in the most ubiquitously used amino acid, glutamine, and you’ll be able to recover from even the most intense training sessions.
- 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.
- HICA-DL – Hydroxyisocaproic acid, a leucine metabolite. Leucine is so powerful, it keeps working even after being broken down to HICA. HICA primarily functions to reduce muscle breakdown.
- Electrolyte Replenishment Matrix – Electrolytes are essential for energy production and preventing muscle cramps by promoting hydration.
When the body is working hard, it is at risk of losing muscle. Taking in some amino acids, specifically BCAAs, near or during exercise prevents and even reverses this effect. Not only is it functional, but it tastes great!
BCAA Revolution is set to take your workouts to the next level.

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 present 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.
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 the initial rate of power production compared to placebo.
HICA (alpha-hydroxyisocaproic acid) is a metabolite of leucine. Similar to leucine, HICA aids in the resistance of muscle damage and breakdown.
- Just 4 weeks of HICA supplementation has been found to increase lean body mass and reduce delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) by tipping the scales in favor of anabolism (Mero et al., 2010).
Q:How should I take BCAA Revolution?
A: As a dietary supplement, mix one scoop (15 grams) with approximately 10-12 oz. of water during and immediately following your workout.
For optimal results, mix 2 scoops (30 grams) with 20-24 oz. of water and sip regularly throughout the day.
Q: What are BCAAs?
A: The branched-chain amino acids are collectively made up of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. They are essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body and can only be obtained through diet or supplementation.
The BCAAs are the primary drivers behind muscle protein synthesis; arguably the most important physiological process for maximal muscle growth and recovery.
Q: What other MuscleSport products can I stack with BCAA Revolution?
Q: When is the best time to take BCAA Revolution?
A: Pre, intra, and post workout as well as in between meals in order to maximally stimulate muscle protein synthesis throughout the day.
