Active BCAA Description

Steadfast's Active BCAA is  an advanced formula for muscle repair and growth. It contains  three of the most essential amino acids: L-leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine in the ideal 2:1:1 ratio, making it the perfect supplement for muscle growth and recovery. The presence of muscle maximiser and fatigue reducer, L-Arginine; Muscle Maintaining  Amino Acid, L-Glutamine; and low Glycemic Index  fruit-based carbohydrate fructose, make  Active BCAA the intra workout supplement essential for every sport.

Each 15 g serving sachet of Active BCAA provides:

BCAAs 5000 mg
(L-Leucine 2500 mg, L-Isoleucine 1250 mg and L-Valine 1250 mg)
L-Glutamine 1000 mg
L-Arginine 500 mg

Why Active BCAA?

Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine are three essential amino acids grouped as Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). These amino acids play a role in stimulating muscle protein synthesis, muscle soreness, and fatigue.

1. Muscle Growth 

Active BCAA promotes muscle growth by providing leucine, which acts as an activator of the muscle synthesis pathway in our body.

2. Enhances Recovery 

BCAAs enhance muscle recovery when consumed after an intense workout session. Athletes and active people prefer taking it during a workout as it quickly gets absorbed by the body and aids in muscle repair. The presence of glutamine further assists BCAAs in expediting  muscle recovery.

3. Delays Muscle Soreness 

BCAAs are also effective in reducing muscle soreness. Vigorous exercise often results in soreness called DOMS (Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness). Active BCAA helps reduce the length and intensity of DOMS, provides strength and  stamina that allows the body to perform for a longer duration.

4. Reduces Fatigue 

Almost every athlete experiences exercise-induced fatigue caused by the decline in levels of BCAAs and other nutrients and an increase in the level of tryptophan. Active BCAA fills this gap. It is a powerful stress and fatigue buster that improves mental alertness and allows greater concentration, thereby improving performance.

5. Increased Nutrient Supply 

Active BCAA contains L-Arginine, which acts as a precursor of nitric oxide (NO). Arginine increases nitric oxide activity in the body resulting in vasodilation. Improved blood flow, enhanced and constant supply of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles empowers athletic performance and increase tenacity.

6. Increased Endurance 

Active BCAA is an ideal intra-workout for improving endurance. During long-duration matches or training, it reduces muscle fatigue, muscle breakdown and acts as an intra-muscular fuel when glucose or glycogen levels are depleted.

7. Boosts Immunity 

The presence of BCAA and L-Glutamine acts together in the body in boosting immune health. Active BCAA is excellent for fighting against infections, inflammation and protecting our body from foreign pathogens because it provides glutamine necessary for the synthesis of immune cells.

8. Promotes Lean Mass 

Active BCAA promotes lean muscle gain by boosting metabolism, enabling fat loss, and preventing fat gain. When BCAA is combined with an intense exercise session, it promotes the use of fat for energy and builds lean muscle mass.

9. Boosts Athletic Performance 

Active BCAA provides three of the most essential amino acids along with L-Arginine and L-Glutamine to prevent catabolism and promote anabolism. It increases the availability of nutrients during a workout or intense training session to prevent an athlete from “hitting the wall”. It simultaneously works on recovery, repairing of muscles, and inflates your stamina to boost the overall athletic performance.

What does Active BCAA constitute?

Amino Acid Mix (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine, L- Glutamine, L-Arginine HCl), Fructose, Acidity Regulator (INS 330), Emulsifier {INS 322 (i)}, Sweeteners (INS 950, INS 955 and INS 960).

Who can take Active BCAA?

1. Strength Athletes 

Active BCAA is a perfect intra-workout drink for strength athletes like bodybuilders, weightlifters, powerlifters, etc. It comes with three vital amino acids in an ideal ratio to work on the repair and recovery of muscles during a workout. The beauty of BCAAs is that it aids in recovery after a workout as well. The presence of L-Arginine and L-Glutamine provides additional support to BCAA by improving the blood flow, better absorption of amino acids and other needed nutrients. A sachet of Active BCAA is recommended for strength athletes per day.

2. Endurance Athletes 

Endurance athletes like cyclists, runners, and swimmers can make use of Active BCAA in enhancing their performance during training sessions and event days. It assists in carbohydrate metabolism and works to ensure a continual supply of energy. If you prefer taking an energy drink during your training then Active BCAA can easily be mixed and taken along with the same. A balanced proportion of carbohydrates and amino acids will prevent depletion of glycogen stores and muscle damage. A sachet of Active BCAA is recommended for endurance athletes per day.

When to take Active BCAA?

Active BCAA can be consumed at any time during the day, preferably during your workout.

How to take Active BCAA?

Mix one sachet (15 g) in 300 ml of water or juice. Consume one serving daily by adults.
