BioTech USA Flash Zero BCAA (Branched-chain amino acid)
When I talk to people there are a lot of them that do not understand why BCAAs are important to use when training. I am going to try and explain it in a way, I feel, that is simple as possible for everyone to understand. This is to me, is one of my MUST have supplements.
Like my coach Ian Cornell explained to me, BCAA is a supplement that you can’t feel the effect of immediately, but you will feel it when you do not use it.
So to break it down, in the human body, there are 20 different amino acids that makeup thousands of different proteins. There are 9 essential amino acids out of the 20 that your body can not produce and you need to get it through diet or supplements. Three of the 9 amino acids are known as BCAAs (branched-chain amino acid) and it’s usually found in protein-rich food. So yes, you can get your amino acids from food, but BCAAs will get into your blood plasma faster than protein-rich food, and that will aid in speeding up recovery and feed your body with the needed amino acids.
The thing I like most about BioTech USA Flash Zero BCAA is the AMAZING taste, I’ve tried the Cola flavour, Peach Ice tea flavour and soon will be going to try the Apple as well. The taste is spot on and makes for a very refreshing drink. I train with heavy weights I need to recover fast to hit the gym again the next day again, hence why I find BCAAs a must. When I’m training legs I like to take my BCAAs with me into the gym to give me an energy and recovery Drink that is all-in-one. On days I train upper body I will drink it as a post workout or sip on it during the day that keeps me hydrated and keeps me in an anabolic state. When I get those “something sweet” cravings, I find that sipping on BioTech USA Flash Zero BCAA takes away that craving

Benefits of using BCAA supplement
My personal favourite- Muscle growth
If I am either busy training or even after training (depending on what my schedule looks like) I like to sip on my BCAA, because it contains essential amino acids which help boost the needed protein that my body needs and it aids in increasing protein synthesis in the muscles. Quick and easy way to get it in when you are on the run like me. Have better workouts
When you train your cortisol levels to rise that leave you feeling fatigued and you wouldn’t be able to train as hard as you planned to. BCAA reduces the amount of cortisol produced by your body and allows you to train longer, and harder, to get the results you want to achieve. Quick recovery
If you had a great workout you just know you are going to feel it the next day, this feeling can last up to 72 hours depending on how you train. Muscles get damaged during training, but BCAA will decrease muscle damage by speeding up your recovery time. Improves breathing
BCAAs decreases your blood CO2 concentration, these levels usually increase with exercise. Because it also increases your ventilator response your body will process and receive more oxygen at higher rates.
If you want to get a result there is no better way than by using a good recovery and BCAA will give you exactly what you need for those results. It is definitely a supplement that you can feel is beneficial when you don't use it.
