Maximize your muscle gains with Okygen Sports BCAA 4:1:1
BCAA 4:1:1, by Okygen Sports, combines the three branched chain amino acids – leucine, isoleucine and valine – in the ideal proportions to maximize muscle hypertrophy. BCAA 4:1:1 is the recommended supplement for demanding athletes looking to have more energy during trainings, increase their muscle mass, and accelerate post-workout recovery.
Why BCAAs are important
BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) are among the most studied supplements in sports nutrition. Among the advantages associated to BCAA supplementation, those that stand out are prevention of catabolism, contribution to muscle gains, reduction of post-workout muscle soreness and increased athletic performance.
BCAAs represent between 35 and 40% of all the essential amino acids present in bodily proteins, as well as 14 to 18% of the amino acids present in muscle tissue. This awesome threesome of amino acids has the unique ability to trigger the muscle protein synthesis process in the body, leading to the creation of new proteins in the body as well as repair of muscle tissue.
Leucine – The strongest link
In all teams, there is that one player that makes the difference, and this also applies to BCAAs. Naturally, all three amino acids are important, but according to scientific literature, most of the advantages offered by BCAAs can be attributed to leucine.
Leucine works as a potent regulator of mTOR , a signaling pathway that activates muscle protein synthesis. Similar to a light switch, the presence of leucine in the blood stream determines whether anabolic or catabolic processes are activated in the organism.
BCAA 4:1:1 – The proportion that really works
When studying the market, Okygen Sports researchers discovered that the majority of BCAA supplements does not contain sufficient leucine. Several of them don't even come in the minimally acceptable 2:1:1 ratio, i.e. containing twice as much leucine as isoleucine or valine.
How can an athlete obtain any results if the ingredient that is the main responsible for the product's efficacy is only present in too small amounts? With that question in mind, the Okygen Sports research team was instructed to create a BCAA supplement that would stand out among its competitors of questionable quality.
