Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are known to stimulate protein synthesis, and can be crucial in both building and preserving muscle. The body can become catabolic during a caloric deficit, meaning muscle breakdown is more likely to occur. BCAAs Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine promote a more anabolic (muscle building) environment. Gym Vixen BCAA is formulated with all 3 BCAAs in the optimal 2:1:1 ratio as found in muscle tissue, along with Casein, HICA, and a Hydration Complex to give you the best chance to fuel your recovery and workouts.
Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine are the three amino acids that make up BCAAs. Supplementing with these prevents a serum decline in BCAAs, which occurs during exercise. A reduction in BCAA circulation is correlated with tryptophan uptake in the brain, which triggers serotonin production and causes fatigue. Essentially, consuming BCAAs before or after workout may stave off exercise induced fatigue. Leucine is the amino acid that plays a key role in protein synthesis. Leucine works in synergy with insulin to activate the mTOR pathway to stimulate protein production.
Casein Hydrolysate and HICA are also included in the mix. Casein Hydrolysate accelerates protein digestion and absorption, enhances amino acid availability, and tends to increase the incorporation rate of dietary amino acids into skeletal muscle protein. It works in synergy with the BCAAs found in Gym Vixen BCAA to ensure faster absorption and usage. HICA, or alfa-hydroxyisocaproic acid, is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine, and may be effective in binding the waste buildup that occurs during protein breakdown post exercise. By removing waste, it allows muscle function to be working at optimal capacity to aid in the highest recovery possible.
The Hydration Complex consists of Coconut Water and essential minerals pyridoxine hydrochloride, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium. Electrolyte balance is crucial to maintain neuromuscular function, and electrolytes are often lost during physical exertion. Gym Vixen BCAA not only replenishes these electrolytes, but provides quality BCAAs, Casein and HICA to maximize your anabolic potential.

Mix 1 scoop in 12-16 ounces of water, and consume prior, during, or post workout.
May not be suitable for those who are pregnant, or nursing. Do not exceed recommended dose. Consult your physician with any questions or concerns.
Leucine -Leucine is an amino acid that stimulates protein synthesis via the mTHOR pathway.
IsoLeucine – Isoleucine is another amino acid, and is utilized in the glucose uptake in muscle cells.
HICA – HICA, or alfa-hydroxyisocaproic acid, is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine, and may be effective in binding the waste buildup that occurs during protein breakdown post exercise.
Q.When Should I Take Gym Vixen BCAA?
A. Research indicates that BCAAs are best taken around exercise, and can be beneficial when taken prior to working out, or may be consumed during or post exercise.
Q.What Are The Benefits Of Gym Vixen BCAA?
A. BCAAs enhances muscle preservation and growth during periods of catabolic events, such as exercise or eating at a caloric deficit. Continued use with a proper diet and exercise regimen will aid in the building of lean muscle mass.*
