BCAA-Pro 5000 contains a precise and scientifically documented 2:1:1 ratio of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) plus the carnosine boosting supplement Beta Alanine. BCAA-Pro 5000 increases protein synthesis, stimulates nitrogen retention and most importantly, protects lean muscle tissue from catabolic stress of heavy training and intense exercise. BCAA-Pro 5000 features Beta Alanine which is a direct precursor to Carnosine. Carnosine is extremely effective in buffering hydrogen ions, which are generally elevated in exercising athletes. In essence, the addition of Beta Alanine (and subsequently Carnosine) in BCAA-Pro 5000 prevents your working muscles from becoming too acidic during times of stress. Vitamin B6 has been added to enhance amino acid utilization directly into the muscle tissue.
