THE ULTIMATE ANABOLIC WEAPON

BCAA Strong

Train Like an Animal in Every Workout!

FIGHT FATIGUE AND BUILD MUSCLE
You hit the gym with a determination to move heavy weights and build size, but some days you feel like you were run over by a Mack truck and your energy goes out the window. Working out can cause many physiological changes, and optimal supplementation can help ensure you get the greatest benefits from your training. What we all need is something that drives anabolism and fights fatigue so we can train harder and longer. That ultimate anabolic weapon is BCAA Strong™, which raises the bar in BCAA supplementation with its revolutionary formula that activates anabolic muscle building while turning off catabolism, and combats the harmful buildup of ammonia and fights muscle fatigue.

10:1:1 LEUCINE LOAD – 4 GRAMS OF LEUCINE FOR MOTOR ACTIVATION AND PROTEIN SYNTHESIS
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a very beneficial supplement to support muscle growth and recovery. They also prevent catabolism (the breakdown of muscle tissue) caused during training if taken before and/or during training. To help support muscle growth and prevent catabolism, BCAA Strong™ contains a leucine-loaded 10:1:1 ratio. The reason for this is all the latest research shows that leucine is the key anabolic driver for stimulating mTOR and protein synthesis. Research shows that a dose of over 3 grams of leucine is needed for mTOR activation and protein synthesis. Most BCAA formulas using a 2:1:1 or other lower ratio fall short of this. MHP’s BCAA Strong™ potent
10:1:1 ratio delivers over 4 grams of leucine to trigger protein synthesis to optimize muscle building and recovery.

COMBAT AMMONIA AND MUSCLE FATIGUE
Taking BCAAs pre-workout or during your workout is beneficial to prevent catabolism and promote muscle building. As previously mentioned, working out causes the breakdown of muscle tissue. This breakdown of muscle tissue causes the accumulation of ammonia, or hyperammonemia. But what most athletes don’t know is that BCAAs during exercise can further elevate your ammonia concentrations, and this buildup of ammonia can cause muscle fatigue.

So, if you ever wondered why you feel burnt out or “hit the wall” during your workout, now you know why. Research shows this common buildup of ammonia can greatly reduce muscle performance. BCAA supplementation, while good for helping to o set catabolism, actually further increases the buildup of ammonia.

The breakthrough formula in BCAA Strong™ contains alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG) to reduce ammonia concentration through a recycling process known as the alpha-keto acid-BCAA cycle. The “ammonia scavenging” alpha-keto acid-BCAA recycling technology in BCAA Strong™ is a major scientific development in BCAA technology, as this Keto acid has been shown in clinical studies to lower ammonia and reduce muscle fatigue.

WHY BCAA STRONG™ IS THE NEXT-GENERATION BCAA FORMULA
AKG Delays Muscle Fatigue and Increases Training Volume

The inclusion of alphaketoglutarate (AKG) makes BCAA Strong™ the next-generation branched-chain amino acid formula. AKG has been clinically studied for its effects on lowering ammonia blood levels to reduce hyperammonemia, and has been shown to help delay muscle fatigue and increase training volume. MHP researchers formulated BCAA Strong™ to combat both protein breakdown and the accumulation of ammonia by adding a potent 1.5 grams of AKG.

Increases workout capacity
Supplementing with AKG has been shown to increase workout capaci and muscle performance. Researchers in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition noted that with alpha-keto acid supplementation, “subjects could bear a higher training
volume and reach a higher power output and peak muscle torque, accompanied by a be er stress recovery state.” Regarding the subjects who supplemented with alpha-keto acid, the researchers concluded: “We found that their training volume, maximum power output and maximum
muscle torque, as well as their performance, were all significantly increased.”

Stimulates protein synthesis and promotes muscle growth
AKG promotes skeletal muscle hypertrophy and protein synthesis through the Akt-mTOR signaling pathway (Nature, Scientific Reports,
May 26, 2016). mTOR plays a major role in promoting protein synthesis and muscle growth.

AKG is a glutamine precursor, anti-catabolic and an ammonia scavenger, detoxifing ammonia into glutamine and decreasing muscle protein breakdown. AKG supplements can also increase blood levels of growth hormones and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1).  Additionally, AKG can spare glutamine and activate the mTORsignaling pathway and stimulate protein synthesis.

Improves exercise performance
Researchers in China and Germany submitted a randomized, double blinded, placebo-controlled study examining the effects of alphaketo
acid supplementation on high-intensity exercise tolerance and recovery. The study demonstrated that alpha-keto acid supplementation, including AKG and BCKAs at 0.2 grams per kilogram of bodyweight twice per day, produced significant improvements in exercise performance at three and four weeks of supplementation.
