Why choose Nutrimuscle BCAA Resistance?

Nutrimuscle produces high-quality BCAAs at a competitive price, while notably avoiding amino acids from human hair, pig hair, or transgenic soy fermentation (GMO).
Nutrimuscle's BCAAs have not undergone any ionising radiation treatments and are guaranteed by the 2 leading producers on the market: Fufeng and Shine Star.

  • The amino acid L-Leucine is obtained from hydrolysed, filtered, and centrifuged goose feathers. The feathers come from birds intended for use in the food industry. 
  • L-Isoleucine and L-Valine are made from bacteria produced by the fermentation of a mixture of guaranteed-non-transgenic corn syrup and dextrose.

What are Resistance BCAAs?

BCAAs (branched chain amino acids: Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) belong to the essential amino acids family. The human body does not have the necessary enzymes to produce them, and only your diet and/or supplementation can provide the BCAAs needed to keep you healthy and support your muscles.
Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance is designed to help resist the catabolism, loss of strength, and fatigue that occurs during training.
Nutrimuscle BCAA Resistance supplements are packed with a high dose of Leucine and Valine.
These BCAAs are the most concentrated in leucine-valine, with:

  • 2 measures of leucine
  • 2 measures of valine 
  • 1 measure of isoleucine

The smaller dose of isoleucine is there as a support for the leucine and valine.

What are the benefits of BCAA Resistance?

Improved resistance
For trained athletes, taking BCAAs 30 minutes before exertion immediately boosts performance by 6%. This improved resistance comes thanks to a 12% increase in VO2 max.
Less fatigue
When taken before and during physical exertion, Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance helps limit falls in blood valine levels and combats fatigue. The level of valine in the muscles increases sharply (+ 35%) during a training session. This explains the drop in valine in the blood, which is where this amino acid produces its anti-fatigue effect.

Usage tips

Who is Nutrimuscle BCAA Resistance for?

Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance is for:

  • Athletes, to improve their sports performance strength and endurance sports.
  • Inactive people, to replenish energy levels if their high-calorie diet leads to significant fatigue.

When should I take Nutrimuscle BCAA Resistance?

Athletes can take 5 g of BCAA orally to increase BCAA levels in the blood in under 15 minutes. The peak increase occurs 60 minutes after consumption, after which point levels will begin to decrease. This maximum increase is delayed by 50% when BCAAs are used during a workout (6). This delay helps us understand why it is necessary to start taking BCAAs ahead of a workout rather than only during the session.

Before a training session

Taking 5 to 10 g of Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance 30 minutes ahead of exertion increases the level of leucine in the blood and muscles, which in turn fights catabolism and increases strength and muscle resistance.

During a training session

Take 1 g of Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance every 10 to 15 minutes with your (maltodextrin and/or dextrose) carbohydrate drink throughout your workout in order to prevent fatigue and catabolism and to increase muscle congestion tenfold.

For a cardio workout

Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance can be used before and during a cardio workout to increase energy expenditure and fat oxidation.

How do I take Nutrimuscle BCAA Resistance supplements?

Take Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance diluted in your bottle of sweetened room temperature mineral water.

Interactions with other Nutrimuscle products

Synergies between supplements

Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance supplements improve the assimilation of L-leucine, carnitine and creatine.

Adverse reactions between supplements

Caution should be taken when using Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance alongside Potassium bicarbonate.

High-quality BCAA 2.1.2

What is important to us is the quality of the raw materials that we consume on a daily basis and in the long term. 

At Nutrimuscle, none of our products are chemically or genetically modified.

The amino acid L-Leucine is obtained from hydrolysed, filtered, and centrifuged goose feathers. The feathers come from birds intended for use in the food industry. Therefore, it is not derived from human hair, pig hair, or transgenic soy fermentation (GMOs), and it has not been treated with ionising radiation.

The raw materials used for the manufacture of L-Isoleucine and L-Valine are bacteria derived from the fermentation of a mixture of guaranteed non-transgenic corn syrup and dextrose. 

These qualities are essential for amino acids such as Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance and Nutrimuscle BCAA 4.1.1 CONSTRUCTORS, which are for frequent consumption (every day or even several times a day) in large quantities.

Benefits of Nutrimuscle BCAA Resistance in more detail

Improved resistance

During physical exertion, your muscles produce lactic acid. This acid lowers the blood pH to an abnormally low level. This acidification process releases the blood tryptophan from the proteins that normally trap this amino acid. The level of free tryptophan increases, which facilitates its journey into the brain. Tryptophan then invades the neurons and transforms into serotonin, a neurotransmitter that causes fatigue. Performance levels collapse. Some people start to feel sleepy, while others develop headaches.

There is a way to block these adverse effects of tryptophan and serotonin: valine acts in synergy with leucine (2). Their intake, through a kind of competition, prevents the transformation of tryptophan into serotonin, which delays the arrival of fatigue. For trained athletes, taking BCAAs 30 minutes before exertion immediately boosts performance by 6% compared to those taking a placebo. This improved resistance is due to a 12% increase in VO2 max (3). Abnormally low levels of valine are found in athletes suffering as a result of over-training and chronic fatigue (4).

BCAAs during training sessions

During weight training, blood BCAA levels decrease by 20%. Without supplementation, this level remains low, right at the time that it is important to boost BCAA concentrations. Ninety minutes after training, this decrease still hits 16%. Leucine is the most affected of the three BCAAs, with a 21% drop (5).

Unlike other amino acids, the level of valine in the muscles increases sharply (+ 35%). This explains the drop in valine in the blood, which is where this amino acid has its anti-fatigue effect. This counter-productive performance crossover highlights the importance of BCAA 2.1.2 Nutrimuscle Resistance before and during exercise.

BCAAs and dieting

If your low-calorie diet causes severe fatigue, Nutrimuscle BCAA 2.1.2 Resistance will help you regain energy while fighting catabolism. BCAAs increase the level of hormones that stimulate fat loss (growth hormones) and decrease your appetite (GLP-1). At the same time, they inhibit the activity of the enzymes responsible for adipose development (1).

For example, for 19 days, athletes followed 1800-calorie diets containing varying levels of BCAAs (1).
With an unsupplemented diet, they lost 1.9 kg. With the same diet supplemented with BCAAs, they eliminated 4 kg. Fat loss was 50% greater around the stomach area and waist, and muscle wasting was reduced by 30%. Thanks to BCAAs, the body draws more calories from adipose tissue and less from muscle.
