Muscle breakdown is a direct result of weight lifting, high intensity interval training, or any other sort of extreme physical activity. If you’re trying to gain mass and build muscle, the last thing you want is muscle breakdown.
What you need to halt muscle protein breakdown is something that provides a strong boost to muscle protein synthesis and supports lean mass gains. Sure, you could have some protein, but wouldn’t you benefit from something that gets to your muscles even faster than waiting for protein to be digested?
Of course you would!
That’s why if you’re wanting to build muscle and stop catabolism, you want BCAAs!
MuscleMaxx BCAA Apocalypse provides the ideal dose of BCAAs and recovery agents you need to maximize muscle growth following the havoc you just wrecked in the gym!
Benefits of BCAA Apocalypse
Stimulates muscle protein synthesis
Supports lean mass gains
Prevents catabolism (muscle wasting)
Enhances stamina and endurance
Enhances nutrient delivery to skeletal muscle tissue
BCAA Apocalypse Ingredients
BCAA 2:1:1 (5g)
Leading the charge on BCAA Apocalypse is the research backed ratio of 2:1:1 BCAAs. That means, each serving of BCAA Apocalypse delivers 2.5g of Leucine, 1.25g of Isoleucine, and 1.25g of Valine to your needy muscles.
Leucine is the “king” of the amino acids since it’s primarily responsible for stimulating the mTOR pathway in the body, which fuels muscle protein synthesis. 2.5g is a high enough dose to keep you in pure “muscle building” mode during your training session and helps stave off catabolism.
Isoleucine, Leucine’s weaker “younger brother, also stimulates protein synthesis in the body, but not quite to the degree that Leucine dose. However, where isoleucine really shines is its ability to enhance glucose utilization during training, which makes for better stamina and energy production.
Valine is the last of the BCAAs, and is well known to enhance glycogen synthesis in skeletal muscle, thereby preventing catabolism.
Additionally, BCAAs provide an excellent source of energy for your muscles during training (especially if you train fasted), resulting in greater endurance and stamina. Plus, BCAAs also help prevent delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and speed recovery!
Glutamine is the most plentiful amino acid in the body, but during times of extreme stress or intense training, the body’s stock of glutamine starts to dwindle, which makes replenishing your glutamine stores essential!
As a hard training athlete, you’ll almost always be sore and at risk for muscle breakdown. That’s where glutamine comes in! It has been shown to enhance recovery, delay onset of fatigue, and prevent muscle protein breakdown. In short, glutamine is the perfect complement to the 5g of BCAAs in Apocalypse!
Similar to Glutamine, taurine is another conditionally essential amino acid in the body that becomes absolutely essential the harder you exercise. Taurine supports hydration by encouraging your muscles to store extra water, which enhances cell volumization. This means you’re body is more hydrated and has better endurance throughout your entire training session.
On top of that, taurine is also an excellent mental energy and focus booster since vast amounts of the amino are stored in the brain.
