THE POWER

Branch Chained Amino Acids (BCAAs) have been a go–to supplement for athletes and serious trainees for quite some time. Comprised of three of the eight essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine AALPHA features that crucial 2:1:1 ratio that’s been proven to deliver results.

No longer just for bodybuilders, research shows that the three amino acids found in AALPHA are the most important in building lean muscle tissue. They’re a crucial supplement for anyone looking to build muscle while staying lean or even more importantly while trying to get lean.

THE SCIENCE

BCAA supplementation can promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth over time, particularly when taken consistently during intense training cycles. It can also be used to prevent fatigue during longer duration activities allowing you to maintain the intensity required to yield results.

Supplementing with AALPHA can prevent a serum decline in BCAAs, which occurs during exercise. A decreased concentration in the blood would normally cause a tryptophan influx into the brain, followed by serotonin production resulting in fatigue. This is where BCAA’s come in, out competing the serotonin uptake into the brain resulting in prolonged endurance.

BCAAs are important to ingest on a daily basis, and while some may argue that diet alone can provide sufficient BCAA, serious athletes rely on the convenience of supplementing with BCAA’s to ensure there’s no deficiency. Athletes following rigorous training schedules while maintaining or striving for a low body fat are highly encouraged to supplement with BCAA’s.

THE FACTS

Immunity

Intense training without a serious dedication to recovery leads to over-training, plateaued gains, and an increased susceptibility to illness. BCAAs can set up a roadblock on this physical road to ruin by increasing the lymphocyte responsiveness necessary to support immune function.

Amino Acid Deficiency

Essential amino acids are called essential because our body needs them and we cannot produce them on our own. While BCAA’s can be gotten through proper nutrition, when athletes are training hard while trying to stay lean the amount of essential amino acids they’re taking in can drop well below the amount needed to sustain the lean muscle gains they’re working towards. This is especially true when athletes are dieting down for competition, cutting weight or just trying to get their abs to show. When calories get restricted it’s crucial to stay out of that catabolic state. BCAA’s have been shown to be especially helpful in those situations by helping trainees not only hold on to the muscle mass they have but also assisting in building lean muscle.

THE RESULTS

Anyone who knows me knows that I like to stay lean. I started upping my intake of RX3 during a particular busy travel schedule. I noticed that I was starting to see better gains in size during that period. That lead me to look into the specific ingredients. The amount of BCAA’s that I was taking get these results would have yielded an unpalatable taste so I decided to put them into pill form. The best schedule for taking the BCAA’s is 1 serving twice a day before and after training.

ATHLEAN RX AALPHA

L-LEUCINE
CLINICALLY EFFECTIVE  DOSAGE: 2-7g

PER DAILY SERVING OF AALPHA: 4g

CLINICAL STUDIES

Declining leucine levels signal mTOR that there's a lack of dietary protein present to synthesize new skeletal muscle protein, therefore disabling mTOR. Upon ingesting increased concentrations of leucine, the elevated amino acid then signals mTOR that sufficient dietary protein exists, and switches on overall protein synthesis. An increase in mTOR activity results in an increase in protein-building and more growth!

  • Maximizes protein synthesis
  • Prevents protein oxidation

 

L-Isoleucine
CLINICALLY EFFECTIVE  DOSAGE: 2 - 4.9g

PER DAILY SERVING OF AALPHA: 2g

CLINICAL STUDIES

Isoleucine can be seen as the BCAA which mediates glucose uptake (into a cell) and breakdown (into energy) to a larger degree than other amino acids and may serve a role as a hypoglycemic (in diabetics) or as a performance enhancer (if taken preworkout in a carbohydrate replete state).

 

L-Valine
CLINICALLY EFFECTIVE  DOSAGE: 2-3g

PER DAILY SERVING OF AALPHA: 2g

CLINICAL STUDIES

Valine helps prevent the breakdown of muscle by supplying the muscles with extra glucose for energy production during intense physical activity. Valine also helps remove potentially toxic excess nitrogen from the liver, and is able to transport nitrogen to other tissues in the body as needed. Valine may help treat liver and gallbladder disease, as well as damage to these organs caused by alcoholism and drug abuse. Valine may help treat or even reverse hepatic encephalopathy, or alcohol-related brain damage.

  • Maximizes protein synthesis
  • Prevents protein oxidation

 

Taurine
CLINICALLY EFFECTIVE  DOSAGE: .5g - 2g

PER DAILY SERVING OF AALPHA: 2g

CLINICAL STUDIES

Brand new studies suggest that Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in the body (above glutamine), particularly in the power generating type II fibers. Through supplementation it is possible to maintain peak stores of this important nutrient to enable more consistent force production without energy dropoff. Long term, taurine has been shown to be a cell volumizer that boosts internal muscle hydration…resulting in higher rates of muscle growth and function.

  • Supports greater muscle growth and function
  • Helps support cardiovascular function
  • Helps temporarily restore mental alertness
  • Assists in periods of increased mental and physical exertion
