GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 is much more than just another BCAA supplement. You could call GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 the next evolutionary stage of the BCAA supplementary category. GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 offers all the benefits of your regular BCAA supplement including increased protein synthesis, anticatabolic muscle protection during any fat loss diet, increased exercise performance and accelerated post-workout regeneration, but we would not be GN Laboratories if we had stopped at this point.
The first thing we did was to modify the leucine:isoleucine:valine ratio of our BCAA blend according to the latest scientific studies, to maximize your muscle protein synthesis. Recent scientific studies have clearly shown that leucine is the branched-chain amino acid that is responsible for triggering and maximizing your muscle protein synthesis via an activation of the mTOR pathway. Because of this, we use a novel and innovative 8:1:1 BCAA ratio, which contains eight times more leucine than isoleucine and valine. This will provide your muscles with full 5 grams of leucine per serving, which is exactly the amount that caused a maximum increase of muscle protein synthesis during clinical studies. More than 5 grams will not lead to better results.
We have combined this innovative BCAA blend with citrulline and glut. amino acids to further increase muscle growth, exercise performance and post-workout recovery. Citrulline and these amino acids will also promote your muscle protein synthesis and thus increase the effects of leucine. But this is not the only benefit of these two amino acids.
Citrulline increases blood flow to your hard working muscles by increasing the production of nitric oxide (NO). This results in a maximum supply of oxygen, important nutrients and anabolic hormones to your muscles and accelerates the removal of toxic metabolic waste products that lead to muscle fatigue. More nutrients and more oxygen in combination with reduced levels of harmful toxins will lead to an increased exercise performance and a faster post workout recovery. Glut. amino acids are also known for promoting and accelerating post workout recovery.
An increased performance because of BCAAs and citrulline in combination with a delayed onset of fatigue means that you can perform more repetitions per set and more sets per workout. It is not really necessary to mention that a more intense and tougher workout will inevitably lead to greater gains in strength and muscle mass.
A faster post-workout recovery supported by GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 means that your body will begin to grow new muscle sooner after your workout and you will need less recovery time before you can work out again. If you can exercise more frequently and more intensively, you can provide a stronger stimulus for increases of muscle mass and strength, which ultimately will result in significantly faster and better gains.
To make this unique combination of BCAAs, citrulline and glut. amino acids even more effective, we have added the probiotic bacterium Bifidobacterium Bifidum to GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1 1. Probiotic bacteria can increase bioavailability and uptake of amino acids by up to 20%, and it would be a pity if only one gram of this innovative blend of ingredients were wasted...
As an additional bonus this probiotic bacterium and glut. amino acids will promote the immune function. This is particularly interesting for hard-working athletes because hard and intensive workouts can temporarily reduce the immune function for several hours after a workout and this can lead to an increased susceptibility for infectious diseases. Do not risk time off due to a cold or flu because of a reduced immune function - with GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 you will always be on the safe side.
To maximize muscle growth, post-workout recovery and exercise performance, we have created a matrix of synergistically interacting ingredients that mutually reinforce each other. We have focused exclusively on ingredients with scientifically proven effects, but see for yourself:
The branched-chain amino acids, also known as BCAAs, include the three essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. BCAAs are very popular with athletes and bodybuilders in particular, because amongst other things these amino acids are capable of activating and stimulating the muscle protein synthesis, resulting in increased gains of fat free muscle mass and an effective protection against any diet-induced muscle loss.
According to recent scientific findings, the branched chain amino acid leucine is primarily responsible for the activation of the muscle protein synthesis by BCAAs. Leucine activates an enzyme called mTOR, which triggers a cascade of processes that ultimately activate and increase your muscle protein synthesis. The extremely important role of leucine for the activation of muscle protein synthesis is the reason why we use an innovative 8:1:1 BCAA ratio that provides maximum amounts of leucine, instead of using the classical 2:1:1 ratio of the amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine.
Scientific studies have shown that a leucine serving of 4 to 5 grams causes a maximum stimulation of the muscle protein synthesis and that larger amounts do not have additional benefits. Since we do not want to leave anything to chance, each serving of GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 contains exactly this maximum effective amount of 5 grams of leucine.
In addition, BCAAs can reduce exercise- or diet-induced elevated catabolic cortisol levels, and according to recent findings may also increase the body's testosterone levels. This will further increase your gains and effectively counteract losses of muscle mass during a strict fat loss diet or contest preparation.
In addition to maximizing your muscle gains, BCAAs can also significantly increase your exercise performance during aerobic and anaerobic workouts. This is because BCAAs are the only amino acids that can directly be used by your muscles as a source of energy when your muscle glycogen stores are running low. At the same time BCAAs can effectively counteract an acidification of your hard working muscles. This will allow you to perform additional repetitions during your sets and to increase your endurance during intense aerobic activities
But that is not all. BCAAs also play an important role during your post-workout recovery. An intensive weight training session leads to a catabolic environment in your body that will be turned into an anabolic environment during the post-workout recovery process. During an intensive workout, your body "consumes" larger amounts of BCAAs, resulting in low BCAA levels within your muscle tissue and the aforementioned catabolic environment. Without a BCAA consumption soon after your workout, it may take several hours before the BCAA levels within your muscles finally return to their normal levels and an anabolic environment can be created.
Consuming a serving of GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 right after your workout can minimize this catabolic period and accelerate your post-workout recovery significantly. If you consume GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 before or during your workout, you may even prevent this catabolic environment!
Citrulline is one of the most effective supplements for increasing the body's nitric oxide (NO) production and citrulline is far more effective than all arginine-based nitric oxide boosters. At the same time, citrulline is completely safe since citrulline is a naturally occurring amino acid that is involved in many processes inside the human body.
Citrulline causes an increase in nitric oxide production via the so-called l-arginine -nitric oxide synthase - nitric oxide pathway that converts arginine into nitric oxide by means of the enzyme endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS). Although arginine is the active substance responsible for this process, the usage of citrulline to stimulate a greater nitric oxide production is much more effective, since orally ingested arginine is almost completely broken down by the liver, before it can reach the bloodstream, while citrulline is converted into arginine in the kidneys after passing the liver. Because of this, orally ingested citrulline increases the arginine levels in the body to a greater extend than orally ingested arginine.
Nitric oxide produced in the endothelial cells of the blood vessels relaxes the smooth muscles of the veins, resulting in an expansion of the blood vessels and an increased supply of blood to your muscles, as more blood can flow through a dilated vein within a shorter period of time.
This increased blood flow leads to a tremendously increased of your muscle pump during your workout, but is by far not all. Even more important than the muscle pump - as great as it may feel - is the fact that an increased blood supply to your hard working muscles results in a significantly improved supply with oxygen, important nutrients and anabolic hormones. This is particularly important during exercise, as your hard-working muscles require increased amounts of nutrients and oxygen for a maximum performance. At the same time, the increased supply of oxygen and nutrients in combination with a better removal of toxic metabolic waste products that are inevitably produced during every intensive workout, leads to a significant delay of the onset of exhaustion, resulting in more muscle and strength building repetitions per set. And as if this were not enough, nitric oxide also improves the contractile function of your skeletal muscles.
This increased blood supply to your muscles is, however, not only beneficial during exercise. After your workout an increased supply of important nutrients and anabolic hormones will markedly accelerate your post workout recovery. As an added bonus, nitric oxide accelerates the activation of satellite cells and increases the levels of myotrophic, muscle growth-promoting substances post workout, while it simultaneously increases the glucose uptake into your muscles, what will lead to a faster replenishment of your muscle glycogen stores that were depleted during your workout.
However, citrulline can do more than increasing your nitric oxide production, accelerating your post workout recovery and increasing your gains of fat free muscle mass. Citrulline can also increase your energy by increasing the ATP production during your workout and therefore reduce and postpone muscle fatigue. Furthermore, citrulline is the limiting factor for the breakdown of toxic ammonia produced during exercise. Higher ammonia levels in your muscles will reduce your muscle performance and accelerate the onset of muscle fatigue. A citrulline supplementation can accelerate the breakdown of toxic ammonia and thereby improve your exercise performance.
Furthermore it has been shown that citrulline can reduce muscle soreness after your workout, while at the same time increasing your muscle protein synthesis to promote gains of fat free muscle mass and post-workout recovery.
Bifidobacterium Bifidum is a healthy probiotic bacterium that supplies the cells of the intestinal with energy can promote the function of the immune system. The primary reason for adding Bifidobacterium Bifidum to the formula of GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 was another one: Scientific studies have shown that probiotic bacteria can increase bioavailability and absorption of amino acids in the gut by up to 20%. The primary ingredients of our formula are different amino acids, which means that by the addition of the probiotic bacteria Bifidobacterium Bifidum the effect of GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 can be significantly increased so you will need less powder to achieve maximum results.
GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 is a highly versatile product you can use as a pre-, intra-, and post-workout supplement and between meals.
Before and during your workout, GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 can increase your exercise performance, increase your muscle pump, delay the onset of exhaustion, and counteract an exercise-induced catabolic environment in your muscle tissue.
After your workout, GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 can accelerate your post-workout recovery by quickly replenishing the BCAA levels of your muscles while simultaneously lowering catabolic cortisol levels. BCAAs increase your muscle protein synthesis and turn an exercise-induced catabolic environment into an anabolic environment that promotes a muscle growth.
Between meals, GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 can stimulate your muscle protein synthesis for an increased muscle growth and provide you with a powerful anabolic boost.
During diet and contest preparation, GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 can counteract an otherwise almost inevitable diet-induced catabolic muscle loss and effectively protect your hard-worked muscle mass. As an added bonus, GN Laboratories BCAA XTEND 8:1:1 can also curb your hunger and appetite by stabilizing your blood glucose levels and can therefore make any fat loss diet easier to endure.
