Description
Precise 2/1/1 ratio (Leucine/Iso leucine/Valine)
BCAA’s are branched chain amino acids consisting of 3 essential amino acids Leucine, Iso-Leucine, and Valine. They are considered essential amino acids because human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet. Together they comprise approximately 1/3 of human muscle tissue.

All top quality protein sources will supply all 9 essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which has been shown to increase lean muscle mass. BCAA’s have long been popular with athletes from a variety of sectors, involving strength and power, along with endurance and stamina. BCAA supplements are convenient to use and should be taken around the training window for maximum effect. PhD recommends using BCAA’s before, during and after intense exercise.

"Im a fitness instructor and ive, been using PhD BCAAs for two weeks now, seen increased workload, and prolonged definition after weights session. Havnt been taking during session just before and after, but would be good to use before fat burning cardio first thing in morning to prevent a catabolic state."

Q&A
Q Hi, I'm currently using PhD Diet Whey and I'm thinking whether or not to use BCAA's or not. First of all, can you stack any sort of BCAA's with whey protein? and secondly is there any sort of major difference between using protein shakes and BCAA's.. Also, if it would benefit stacking the two, which BCAA's would you suggest for use ? Thanks a lot!
A

Yes, you can stack BCAA or Whey together or with just about everything else. Whey contains ALL of the aminos you require in your diet. BCAAs are 3 aminos (one of which is leucine, the most important for muscle-building). So basically the BCAAs give you more of the most important aminos on top of what the whey supplies. Any quality BCAA product will work well (they're pretty much the same).

Q Between the BCAA and the Pharma HMB from PhD, which one would be more successful in helping with recovery time and/or fat loss? Thanks in advance
A

Both of these products are designed for different purposes, you can use them in conjunction with each other. BCAA's are essential for post-workout muscle recovery as Leucine, one of the three BCAA's is known for it's muscle building and recovery properties. HMB is known for it's natural testosterone boosting properties, which is essential for faster recovery whilst you sleep.

Q Can i use this product as well as phd synergy?
A

Absolutely, you can use both of these products with just about anything.

Q Hi, I am already taking PHD Diet Whey as my post workout drink along with some Weetabix to add some fast carbohydrates. I would like to understand if there is any extra benefit of adding extra BCAA? I follow intermittent diet and go for 14hours fasting and so looking to fill something in between. Do you also have any BCAA in powder format that I can take in the morning during my fast period and before training. Thanks
A

Hello, Yes - certainly, adding BCAAs will definitely be of additional benefit to that which you have outlined above. They facilitate muscular repair and development, and since they are essential amino acids, can be beneficial for those reducing their caloric intake (including intermittently), and wanting to ensure they are receiving an adequate intake of said nutrients.

Q What is the difference between These Amino Acids and Whey Protein powder which contains these Aminos anyway nutritionally is there really any difference?
A

BCAA's, L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine, are probably the most essential amino acids for athletes in training and the body demands more of these amino's than any other amino. BCAA's have been shown to increase energy and helps speed up recovery after exercise. Studies also show that free aminos increase the muscle-building process more than proteins when taken before exercise. This probably has to do with the protein needing to be digested first.

Q are the gelatin capsules you use from pork?
A

They are either from pork or bovine/cow. PhD do not specify to us the source. I'll try and find out and get back to you.
