Researched and developed by world-renowned strength and conditioning specialists, professional athletes, and bodybuilders, MASF RECOVERY BCAAs are an ideal supplement for any athlete or individual participating in regular exercise or physical labor. MASF Recovery BCAAs are especially helpful for individuals experiencing muscle wasting, due to disease or aging. They are most effective if taken with proper dosage and consistency. We use the BCAAs 2:1:1, “Gold standard” ratio combined with L-Glutamine for a full synergistic effect in building muscle and immune support.
The main benefit of BCAAs are their positive effects on your muscles. It has been suggested that BCAAs, especially leucine, can increase muscle protein synthesis (the process your body goes through when it builds muscle mass) when paired with resistance training. This means that supplementing with BCAAs will help to turn on the muscle-building engine and increase your gains after a tough session at the gym.
When you go several hours without eating, especially without protein-rich foods, your muscles start to break down in a process called muscle protein breakdown (this can also occur during prolonged exercise). If you are looking to increase or maintain your muscle mass, you want to avoid this as much as possible. A meal high in protein after exercise will alleviate this. In addition, BCAAs can also be used to defend against muscle breakdown.
Protein in general plays an important role in muscle growth, but more recent research shows that BCAAs are especially good at maintaining muscle mass in athletes. This is because BCAAs help in reducing muscle catabolism (the breakdown of muscle tissue). If you’re trying to gain muscle mass, or prevent muscle breakdown after a strenuous training session the supplementation of BCAAs would be a welcomed addition to a well-rounded athletic diet.
