BioSteel BCAA Plus Citrus Twist
BioSteel BCAA Plus Citrus Twist has been designed to optimize muscle recovery and reduce fatigue by providing maximum support for lean muscle tissue, supporting your body's ability to recover from high-intensity exercise. BioSteel BCAA Plus Citrus Twist also aids in reducing post-workout soreness by naturally enhancing the production of human growth hormone after exercise. The formula not only contains a scientifically validated dose of leucine, but it also includes a full spectrum of BCAAs, which are the building blocks for critical metabolic enzymes and structural proteins found within muscles.
BioSteel's BCAA Plus Citrus Twist Supplement Facts
- BCAAs + Vitamins + Amino Acids = BioSteel's unique BCAA product provides you with essential nutrients for your active lifestyle.
- Branched Chain Amino Acids (Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine) in a 3:1:1 ratio means that there is more leucine in the product than Isoleucine and Valine combined.
- Citrus Bioflavonoids + Vitamin C = As an antioxidant, Citrus Bioflavonoids may help reduce inflammatory markers after intense exercise. The Vitamin C content supports your immune system while promoting tissue growth/repair within muscles to reduce fatigue during periods of intense training.
- No artificial flavours or sweeteners. No preservatives or fillers.

BCAA, or branched-chain amino acids, are the building blocks of protein and may help reduce fatigue. They consist of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Supplementation with BCAAs has been shown to increase metabolism while decreasing body fat, which enhances recovery. L-Leucine, in particular, is recognized for its ability to raise blood levels of HGH, which aids in muscle recovery. Your body uses HGH more efficiently after intense exercise when supplemented with BCAA's like BioSteel's BCAA Plus Citrus Twist.
Are chemical compounds which are responsible for the unique smell/taste of citrus fruits. They also act as an antioxidant by providing support against free radicals, which are molecules derived from oxygen that promote ageing effects within your cells. Inflammatory markers can result after intense exercise and can be reduced with Citrus Bioflavonoids.
It is known as the "main" amino acid - it directly stimulates protein synthesis, which is crucial in maintaining and building lean muscle mass. Supplementation with L-Leucine has been shown to lead to increased levels of HGH.
It is one of the two branched-chain amino acids - this means that its molecules are configured similarly to leucine. Supplementation with BCAA's like BioSteel's BCAA plus Citrus Twist has been shown to increase protein synthesis, enhancing recovery time after exercise by reducing the amount of time needed for muscles to repair themselves (hence why post-workout supplementation is so popular).
It is one of the two branched-chain amino acids. Like leucine, it has a structure that provides many benefits to athletes and those trying to gain muscle or lose weight. Supplementation with BCAA's like BioSteel's BCAA Plus Citrus Twist has been shown to enhance protein synthesis, improving recovery time after exercise by reducing the amount of time needed for muscles to repair themselves (hence why post-workout supplementation is so popular).
It is a non-essential amino acid, which means that it can be synthesized in your body from another amino acid known as L-Ornithine. Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid found within human muscle cells. Glutamine supplementation has been shown to significantly reduce cortisol levels and prevent immune suppression - both of which may occur during periods of high stress, such as when training intensely for sports.
