The 8:1:1 ratio-containing Modern BCAA™ has been the standard of excellence since its release‚ but a new standard has arrived – Modern BCAA+™ – and it is loaded with 50% more aminos per serving!*
With Modern BCAA+ you’ll get a colossal 450 grams of aminos in each 30 serving tub for a whopping 15 grams in each serving!
50% More Aminos Per Serving + Key Aminos
Modern BCAA is the choice BCAA supplement for anyone serious about training‚ but innovation is the name of this game and USPlabs® is always looking for ways to improve our products and improve your results…Enter Modern BCAA+.
Not only did we give you MORE AMINOS‚ we gave you NEW AMINOS - new key exercise aminos that have been shown to do all kinds of things that will make you want them:
Glycine: Supplementing with this amino around exercise is very important because muscles release more Glycine during fasted exercise than any other amino‚ which can create a catabolic state.
Alanine: Also released at very high rates during fasted exercise‚ making supplementation important to preventing a catabolic state.
Taurine: The most abundant amino acid in skeletal muscle. A recent animal study demonstrated that when muscles are low in Taurine‚ muscle function and performance were significantly reduced.
Lysine: This essential amino acid has been shown to preserve Leucine in an extreme protein starved state.
More Aminos‚ New Aminos‚ and It TASTES GREAT Too
We all want the best results from the best products‚ but no one wants to sip on a bitter bottle full of floaties in between crushing sets.
Thanks to our new Advanced Micronization Process‚ the days when the nastiest tasting product worked the best are long gone.
Modern BCAA+ tastes great‚ mixes well‚ and comes in three refreshing flavors – Watermelon‚ Fruit Punch‚ and Blue Raspberry.
You Want Leucine and We’ve Got It – The Coveted 8:1:1 BCAA Ratio
You want Leucine and most BCAA products just don’t have that much of it.
Measly 2:1:1 and 4:1:1 ratio-containing products are causing people to double‚ triple‚ or even quadruple their servings to achieve better results‚ drastically decreasing how long the product lasts.
Don’t waste your hard earned money; get all the Leucine you need with Modern BCAA+ and its coveted 8:1:1 Leucine:Valine:Isoleucine ratio! Simply mix one serving of Modern BCAA+ with water and enjoy all the Leucine your amino-deprived muscles desire!
Leucine’s Big Effects on One Little Known‚ but Powerful Anabolic Pathway
Mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) is one of THE most under-rated anabolic & protein synthesis pathways known to man and you're probably not even coming close to maximizing its enormous potential.
Among its many roles‚ mTOR is responsible for hypertrophic growth (an increase in muscle cell size‚ for example‚ protein synthesis and tissue morphogenesis). A wide range of data have suggested that amino acids are capable of directly regulating mTOR signaling pathways in skeletal muscle (1‚ 2‚ 3‚ 4)‚ including the possibility that they activate some of the cell-signaling elements upstream from mTOR in the insulin/growth factor signaling pathway.
This same data suggests that the amino acid-induced activation of mTOR signaling pathways is not uniform. There is evidence that the mechanism of mTOR activation may be both tissue and amino acid specific (5‚ 6). In particular‚ the amino acid Leucine is indicated as being primarily responsible for the branched chain amino acid-induced activation of mTOR signaling pathways‚ and therefore mTOR's effect on protein turnover and synthesis (1 – 6).
This hypothesis has come about as studies have shown that most of the effects of amino acids on mTOR signaling are abolished by lowering the concentration of Leucine‚ or increased by adding Leucine and‚ to a lesser extent‚ the other branched-chained amino acids.
In other words‚ Leucine is the star‚ but it also must be mentioned that the other two BCAA‚ Valine & Isoleucine‚ need to be present in order to maximize results.
Getting the Right Amounts of Valine and Isoleucine
Your body can only transport so much BCAA and all three BCAA compete for the same transport system. You need Valine and Isoleucine to maximize results‚ but too much of these two BCAA may actually lower intracellular levels of the “star amino” Leucine.
This is NOT what you want!
Additionally‚ once ingested‚ Leucine first fulfills other structural roles unrelated to protein metabolism prior to activating mTOR signaling pathways. You need a lot of Leucine and you don’t want unnecessarily high levels of Valine and Isoleucine further reducing intracellular Leucine levels.
The result is that BCAA products with a 2:1:1 or 4:1:1 ratio may actually counteract the anabolic effects from the product‚ as these substrates are pitted against one another to compete for metabolism.
