BCAA 5000 Powder by Optimum Nutrition

The main goal of each athlete’s training is to build muscle. Volumes are growing thanks to essential amino acids - leucine, valine, isoleucine. They are not produced in the human body, but come from outside. It is simply impossible to completely cover the need of a training person for essential amino acids from ordinary food, because the products contain these compounds in a minimal amount. To obtain the necessary concentration of substances required for muscle growth, athletes take various sports supplements. Very popular among athletes is such a complex as BCAA 5000 Powder, manufactured by Optimum Nutrition - one of the most famous manufacturers of sports nutrition.

The supplement contains three essential amino acids. Isoleucine, valine, and leucine account for thirty-five percent of the total number of amino acids contained in muscle fibers. They are directly involved in blocking catabolic and anabolic processes. The complex is absolutely safe for humans, but it can significantly increase the athletic performance of trainees. The product improves the quality of recovery and has a positive effect on human health in general.
