VitaCore BCAA + HICA
*DISCLAIMER NOT AVAILABLE FOR IN-STORE PICKUP*
Core BCAA + HICA™ floods your body with efficacious amounts of instantized branched chain amino acids, glutamine, taurine, and a full 500mg of HICA. These ingredients work in perfect synergy to help muscles repair, recover and rebuild from strenuous training sessions. When the body is working hard, it is at risk of moving into a negative nitrogen balance, or catabolic (muscle breakdown) state. Consuming amino acids, specifically BCAAs, before or after exercise prevents and even reverses this effect…. helping to push your performance to the next level. HICA is the end result of leucine metabolism in human tissues and primarily functions to reduce muscle breakdown. Studies have shown that HICA can enhance anaerobic and aerobic performance as well as help to promote optimal gains in muscle mass and muscle fiber size. However, the biggest benefit of HICA can be the reduction of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Core BCAA + HICA™ is perfect combination of amino acids to reduce muscle breakdown, accelerate recovery, and support an increase in lean body mass.
- 5000mg BCAAs in a 3:1:1 ratio – Shown to promote muscle growth, recovery, and reduce training related soreness. BCAAs have also been shown to increase energy and blunt fatigue during exercise.
- 3000mg Taurine – Improves time to exhaustion, VO2 max, and maximal workload.
- 1000mg L-Glutamine – Glutamine is used in numerous bodily processes, including muscle anabolism, gluconeogenesis, nutrient absorption, and immunity.
- 500mg HICA – Shown to increase whole lean body mass and reduce muscle soreness by 23% over a 4-week period compared to placebo.
- 299mg Electrolytes – Helps maintain fluid balance in the muscle, facilitate motor neuron function and aid in recovery.
