AST BCAA is an anabolic amino formula that is designed to promote increased muscle strength, enhanced endurance, reduced fatigue, and speedy recovery.*

BCAA is short for Branched Chain Amino Acid. The BCAAs are leucine, isoleucine and valine. These are 3 of the 9 essential amino acids in the human body. Essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body. You must get them through your diet. These 3 unique amino acids make up over 40% of your daily required essential amino acid intake. BCAAs are unique in many ways but one extraordinary aspect of these 3 amino acids is that they bypass liver metabolism and are transported and metabolized directly in muscle. They are the primary building blocks of muscle tissue proteins. They also are carbon and nitrogen precursors for the synthesis of alanine, glutamate, and glutamine.

BCAAs are the most extensively researched amino acids. When it comes to turning on anabolic activity in muscle tissue while turning off anti-catabolic activity, no other amino acids have show shown such direct effect.
