  • Grenade Defend BCAA (390g)

    7 potent grams of BCAA’s at a 2:1:1 ratio – the perfect mix to fuel your sport and ambitions.

     In simple terms when you train hard you use your muscles more and to ensure your muscles recover, grow and work hard you need to make sure that more amino acids are entering the muscle tissue throughout the day than are leaving it. To achieve this you need the right balance, and luckily for you Grenade have formulated it for you.

    Features:

    • BCAA - 2:1:1 Ratio
    • 1g of Glutamine
    • 500mg of Powdered Coconut Water (rich in minerals and electrolytes) and Electrolyte Blend

    RESEARCH
    Several key, powerful and cutting-edge ingredients have been added to Defend, including: High-Dosage Leucine is probably the single most important amino acid for bodybuilders and strength and power athletes. This BCAA, even at modest levels, can literally “turn on” muscle-building activity. No other single amino acid is known to do this to any significant extent on its own. Also, studies suggest that adding additional leucine to Protein can increase the magnitude of protein synthesis (the process that builds muscle).Defend contains both peptide-bound and freeform leucine [1]. Astragin Astragin®, a patented combination of Astragalus and Panax Notoginseng has been added to Defend to support optimum absorption. Impressive results have been obtained using this ingredient from scientific studies into its activity in Human intestinal Caco-2 cells, which have the responsibility for nutrient absorption from the gut. L-Citrulline DL-Malate Of all of the amino acids, citrulline has been found to increase nitric oxide and blood flow the most, more than arginine and other amino acids
    High nitric oxide levels and improved blood flow have been associated with increased weight training performance, increased muscle protein synthesis, increased Protein content in muscle, reduced fatigue, increased energy production and increased creatine phosphate production [2,3,4].

    Alpha lipoic acid has been demonstrated in scientific studies to have a positive impact on insulin function in the body and effects on supporting creatine uptake and retention in the muscle cells.

    Glutamine peptides have long been recognised as a stable form of glutamine by bodybuilders and other strength athletes who use them for their purported cell-volumising and anticatabolic effect synthesis, increased protein content in muscle, reduced fatigue, increased energy production and increased creatine phosphate production [2,3,4].
