Higher Power BCAA 1000
The product claims that BCAAs (L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-Isoleusine) make up one third of muscle protein. They explain that during intense exercise the BCAAs are expended from muscle tissue at a rapid rate, leading to increased muscle tissue breakdown. Thus, they recommend taking 2-4 capsules 30 minutes prior to training and 2-4 capsules immediately after training. This, in theory, should limit muscle tissue breakdown since, unlike other amino acids, BCAAs can be used as energy by the muscles and thus the body would not need to breakdown muscle tissue to receive these essential amino acids. Also, taking BCAAs after a workout would help to increase protein-synthesis and thus muscle growth.
Due to these reasons I decided to try out this product. I took 4 capsules before my workout and 4 capsules after my workout. Honestly, it was difficult to tell if this product was working. I can't really say I noticed any strength or size gains. However, this does not mean that the product does not work. I think for $9.99 a bottle it is a worthwhile supplement to take. I think it is especially beneficial to those who have a hard time eating enough protein, and thus amino acids, from food sources or from shakes. Personally, I am not a big fan of drinking protein shakes. I find that most of them are hard for me to digest, and also cause my breath to smell a bit. Taking these BCAAs didn't cause me these side effects. Also, taking a protein shake before or after your workout would not have the same effect as taking direct BCAAs. The protein would not be absorbed and used by the muscles as quickly since it would need to be digested before the body can use the BCAAs as an energy source. Due to these reasons, I would definitely purchase this supplement again. However, next time I will up the dose a bit and use it for a longer duration. I feel that the affordable price of the product makes this possible.
