BCAAs and a fasted state — it works!

 

“Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA; leucine, isoleucine, and valine), and in particular leucine, have anabolic effects on protein metabolism by increasing the rate of protein synthesis and decreasing the rate of protein degradation in resting human skeletal muscle”

The research was done on fasted groups, to see what happens when you take BCAAs after an overnight fast. They found that it stimulates phosphorylation of p70 S6k. 

The second article helps to explain what that means, but basically, this process results in more muscle tissue. Combine that with being in a fasted state where you are gunning for hard to reach fat! ERO has the most BCAAs and the best quality BCAAs on the market combined with vitamins and electrolytes that will make you feel great while building up your body.
