6g of Beta-Hydroxybutyrate Salts
As mentioned above, BHB Salts are the "primer" or signaling catalyst to initiate the body to begin to use ketones as fuel. Coupled with a low-carb diet, once this initial fuel source of exogenous ketones is exhausted, your body then uses the next source of ketones: body fat. By including 6g of BHB Salts, Keto BCAA is able to put your body in the state of nutritional ketosis to help accelerate fat burning while you train. BHB Salts also provide energy for the body and mind, giving you a cognitive boost to dominate your workout.
5g of BCAA’s
BCAA’s, or Branch Chained Amino Acids, are made up of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. BCAA’s, most notably Leucine, have been shown in studies to initiate protein synthesis by activating a pathway called mTOR. This activation of the mTOR pathway is what signals the body to build muscle.
BCAA’s are also anti-catabolic. This means that they also they prevent muscle breakdown, which dramatically helps improve muscle recovery from exercise. Another interesting benefit about BCAA’s is there ability to delay fatigue from exercise. In one study, BCAAs one hour prior to exercise showed that BCAA supplementation was able to preserve reaction time after exercise. With an increase in endurance from the next ingredient we will cover, PeakO2™, this delay in fatigue fits perfectly with Keto BCAA’s main goal: To maximize your training.
2g of PeakO2™
PeakO2™ is a combination of six different mushrooms that are powerful adaptogens , which allow athletes to “adapt” to and overcome physical and mental stress. Controlling both physical and mental stress will give you the extra edge you want to take your training to the next level.
PeakO2™ has numerous benefits to aid athletes:
- Increased workout duration & time to exhaustion
- Maximum power output
- Improved Peak strength
- Enhanced Anaerobic peak power
- Increased ability to uptake oxygen & exercise capacity
These benefits make PeakO2™ an extremely versatile ingredient. Dosed pre-workout, intra-workout, or post-workout, Keto BCAA takes full advantage of these benefits that PeakO2™ has to offer.
2g of L-Glutamine
Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid well known for its ability to aid muscle recovery. It has great synergy with BCAA’s, especially leucine, since some studies have shown that it may enhance the post-workout anabolic response when coupled with Leucine. This is due to the fact that Glutamine, when combined with Leucine, reduces the rate of Leucine oxidation. Leucine is then allowed to do what it does best: Maximize muscle protein synthesis.
Glutamine also increases one’s endurance and performance via a reduction in ammonia (talk about great synergy with PeakO2™!)!. Supplementing with Glutamine has been shown to be directly anti-catabolic, especially when one has a deficiency in L-Glutamine levels. In one study with patients with elevated Cortisol levels, a state where muscle catabolism is very high, the Glutamine group experienced less of a catabolic state via reducing essential amino acid conversion into glutamine, and less of a leucine expenditure.
Muscle recovery, growth and endurance. Three things Keto BCAA hammers on and ultimately exceeds through thoroughly backed scientific research. With muscle building and sparing BCAA’s (at a clinical dosage and scientifically validated 2:1:1 ratio) combined with high-quality anti-catabolic L-Glutamine, your muscle tissue will be protected and you can recover faster from intense training sessions. The anabolic boosting effects of L-Leucine will not only protect muscle tissue, but can also directly aid in adding lean muscle mass as well. One of the most crucial factors in adding lean muscle mass, however, is creating a stimulus for muscle growth. With PeakO2™, your training will reach a new level.
Carefully crafted to maximize your intra-workout and post-workout nutrition, Keto BCAA is the ultimate amino acid drink for athletes who are serious about taking their training to the next level.
