WHAT IS EFFERVESCENT BCAA?
EFFERVESCENT BCAA contains pure branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) in a effervescent tablet form, making this the ideal BCAA supplement for on-the-go and traveling. Simply drop the tablet into a glass of water or shaker bottle and it will turn it into a delicious bubbling orange BCAA drink. EFFERVESCENT BCAA contains pure BCAAs in an evidence-based ratio of 2:1:1, with 500 mg of L-leucine and 250 mg each of L-isoleucine and L-valine per tablet.
Benefits of EFFERVESCENT BCAA
BCAAs have a myriad of benefits since they are free-form essential amino acids that rapidly enter the bloodstream and activate muscle protein synthesis. This makes BCAAs ideal immediately before, during, and/or after strenuous exercise, especially resistance training.
Research-backed benefits of BCAAs include:
● Enhance muscle protein synthesis and inhibit muscle protein breakdown1,2
● Promote recovery during and after your workout3
● Support fat loss while protecting lean body mass4
● Reduce fatigue and lactic acid buildup during exercise3
While most proteins contain BCAAs, the body has to digest and breakdown the peptide bonds so that it can actually utilize the individual amino acids. Thus, supplementing with free-form BCAAs means the body absorbs these essential amino acids virtually instantly with minimal digestion required. This is generally why gym-goers and athletes prefer BCAAs over protein during training since the latter can be a bit tough to digest when you’re trying to work out.
What Makes HS Labs EFFERVESCENT BCAA Better than Other BCAA Tablets?
While BCAA tablets can be useful in some scenarios, EFFERVESCENT BCAA gives you the benefits of both worlds by being simple to carry with you and easy to mix in virtually any liquid, even a bottle of water. This makes EFFERVESCENT BCAA perfect for active individuals who want quick access to muscle-building BCAAs while they are on-the-go or traveling (when carrying a bottle of pills or BCAA powder isn’t viable).
Moreover, EFFERVESCENT BCAA is manufactured in the EU in a cGMP facility and is completely free from acesulfame-K and aspartame.
