A vegan-friendly essential amino acid supplement, containing an optimal 2:1:1 ratio of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These can’t be produced by your body so they must come from your diet.
Most Vegan protein does not come with added BCAA’s blended with them, as a result adding unflavoured Body Ripped – BCAA’s with your favourite Vegan Protein may assist in recovery and muscle repair.
What is it?
BCAAs are the most popular amino acid supplement, with good reason. The 3 branched chain amnio’s - Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine - comprise 35% of muscle tissue. BCAAs (particularly Leucine) are heavily metabolised for energy during intense training, and need to be replaced to prevent muscle loss.
They are also crucial to muscle growth and recovery, acting as modulators of protein synthesis. Athletes in all sports are now using BCAAs before, during, and after training to reduce muscle breakdown, and to speed up recovery.
Some bodybuilders and other athletes on a high protein diet also add BCAAs to protein meals, to improve protein quality, thereby increasing protein synthesis and muscle growth.
What do they do?
Leucine an essential amino acid. Of all the Branched Chain Amino Acids Leucine is the most abundant and most important. Research has shown that Leucine’s major role is as a protein synthesis regulator and if you add Leucine to a high protein meal you can increase protein synthesis by up to 40%.
can be used in conjunction with meals that are already high in protein to help accelerate the recovery of muscles. Many athletes add extra Leucine to their diet to help reduce the breakdown of muscles during training and to reduce the soreness of muscles after training.
Isolecuine is essential for a number of fundamental processes in the body and may enhance insulin sensitivity in the body thereby increasing the efficacy of essential and non-essential amino acid absorption.
It is also incredibly beneficial for protecting muscle tissue (particularly whilst dieting or performing high volume style training) and for repairing lean tissue which is subjected to microdamage from weight training.
Isoleucine is a separate amino acid to leucine and has a different chemical structure. The two are derived from different sources and need different enzymes to be synthesised by the body. Isoleucine is manufactured by plants and some microorganisms and needs the metabolic compounds pyruvic acid and alpha-ketoglutaric acid to be created. Both of these compounds promote better aerobic respiration in the body's cells.
Valine promotes optimal nitrogen balance in the body which supports protein synthesis (Protein absorption) and muscle hypertrophy (muscle gain).
Valine is also an incredibly efficient source of energy for your muscle tissue and this is why it’s considered one of the best workout support supplements to take during exercise

Take BEFORE EXERCISE and/orduring exercise
For Increased Muscle Growth
Take anytime, or with meals
