Blackstone Labs BCAA Resurgence & Nootropics When your primary concern is building muscle, there’s a few
things you need to focus on each day -- eating ample calories, training intensely
by following the principles of progressive overload, and getting enough rest.
But sometimes that’s not enough. Sometimes your body is missing those key
nutrients it needs throughout the day to repair, replenish and rebuild your
mind and muscles.
BCAA Resurgence is your all day, every day muscle-building
insurance policy that provides the essential amino acids, vitamins, and
minerals to promote optimal muscle growth and recovery.
Say goodbye to soreness, achiness, lethargy, and lackluster
gains once and for all with BCAA Resurgence!
What's in Blackstone Labs BCAA Resurgence?
HICA Scientifically known as
Alpha-Hydroxy-Isocaproic-Acid, or Leucic Acid, HICA is a metabolite of Leucine
that works in conjunction with other active amino acids present in BCAA
Resurgence to stimulate muscle growth and accelerate recovery.
Theobromine A relative of caffeine, theobromine is a
xanthine-like molecule that stimulates the CNS similar to caffeine but energy
surge is much smoother and longer-lasting. Additionally, theobromine also
enhances vasodilation, promoting superior cerebral blood flow for greater focus
CDP-Choline Choline is an essential nutrient that
plays a critical role in gene expression, cell membrane signaling, lipid
transport, metabolism, and brain development. CDP-Choline is a highly
bioavailable form of supplemental choline that increases synthesis of
acetylcholine (a.k.a. “The learning neurotransmitter"). Higher levels of
acetylcholine promote greater focus, concentration, and the ever-important
mind-muscle connection during exercise.
L-Leucine (2g) Dubbed the “king” of all amino acids,
Leucine is one of the three branched-chain amino acids, along with Isoleucine
and Valine, that play a key role in muscle growth. Leucine is the primary
stimulator of muscle protein synthesis by activating the mTOR pathway which
flips the switch in your body to build muscle.
L-Isoleucine (1g) Another one of the BCAAs that can
stimulate muscle protein synthesis, but to a lesser extent than leucine.
However, isoleucine does play a significant role in glucose uptake and
utilization during exercise, resulting in greater energy production and
performance. Isoleucine may also play a role in fat loss, as some research
indicates the amino acid inhibits fat storage and increases fat burning.
L-Valine (1g) The third BCAA, Valine supports greater
endurance and reduced fatigue while training. Valine competes with tryptophan
(another amino acid) for uptake into the brain (and wins!), leading to
decreased serotonin production. The brain interprets serotonin as an indicator
of fatigue, so with less serotonin, you’ll be able to push harder for longer
during your lifting sessions.
L-Lysine (1g) supports the production of carnitine, a
compound that helps convert fatty acids into useable energy. Lysine also
enhances calcium absorption, and works in conjunction with L-arginine to
increase growth hormone (GH) production.
L-Taurine (1g) A conditionally essential amino acid,
taurine exerts a number of beneficial effects in the body. Taurine enhances
cellular hydration, promoting greater endurance and stamina, and also improves
mood and focus due to large concentrations of the amino being present in the
Threonine (950mg) supports optimal functioning of the
cardiovascular, liver, central nervous, and immune systems of the body.
Research notes that Threonine also helps maintain the protein balance in the
body and accelerate recovery from an injury.
L-Alanine (500mg) plays a crucial role in protein
synthesis, even though it’s classified as a nonessential amino acid.
Additionally, alanine can also convert to pyruvate, a compound essential for
glucose production and blood sugar regulation.
Methionine (300mg) vital to the production of
creatine and carnitine in the body. As a result, this essential amino acid aids
energy production, athletic performance, cellular hydration, and most
importantly, lean mass gains..
Phenylalanine (150mg) As a precursor to tyrosine,
phenylalanine increases production of three key neurotransmitters -- dopamine,
epinephrine, and adrenaline. These three neurotransmitters enhance alertness
and mood, and serve a critical role in muscle activation.
