Product Information

Description

XR Series™ BCAA Advance XR™
  • Advanced BCAA System to Spare Muscle Breakdown & Preserve Glycogen*
  • Immediate & Sustained 6 Hour Extended Release Anabolic Leucine
  • OT2™ Technology for Advanced Muscle Protein Synthesis*
THE BENEFITS OF BCAA Advance XR™
GNC's superior Pro Performance® XR Series™ BCAA Advance XR™ is uniquely formulated to help athletes receive immediate release of muscle fueling Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA), plus a longer lasting supply of anabolic Leucine. Leucine is the key BCAA shown to impact muscle protein synthesis.* This anabolic bulking block is now Optimal Timing Technology - OT2™ - enhanced to provide a sustained release of Leucine for six hours.

OT2™ - THE EXCLUSIVE GNC ADVANTAGE
OT2™ is GNC's intelligent nutrient delivery system engineered to help release key ingredients during crucial times when you need them most! These breakthrough products are designed to deliver immediate and sustained release of ingredients to help maintain benefits throughout your workout, day or night. OT2™ ingredients are coated with a special technology that controls when they are released.

These special actives may be seen in the product- now that's a real technology you can see and feel! It goes without stating that protein is critical for stimulating muscle synthesis and preserving muscle glycogen stores. Leucine, a key branched chain amino acid, is one of the primary nutrients in protein responsible for these benefits. With the introduction of the unique, sustained-release technology, now muscle fueling leucine is released for up to six hours!

NITRO-FACTOR™ - MAXIMIZE MUSCLE BUILDING
The full muscle building potential of a GNC product is based on its total nitrogen content- so the more nitrogen a product has, the stronger it will perform. Nitrogen needs increase during training, and if nitrogen levels are low, your body pulls from muscle stores which can result in catabolism, poor performance and longer recovery. To fuel performance and anabolism, Pro Performance® XR Series™ BCAA Advance XR™ is loaded with 5 grams of nitrogen-boosting ingredients.

Branched-Chain Amino Acids for Sports & Fitness

Branched-Chain Amino Acids

Why Do Athletes Use It?*

Some athletes say that branched-chain amino acids helps improve strength-training and endurance results.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

A good deal of research has been done on branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) in athletes, but results are quite mixed. BCAAs do not seem to enhance training benefits or exercise performance in most situations. Some athletes, however, may experience increased mental clarity during exercise or may be less susceptible to infections caused by the stress of exercise. Performance under extreme conditions, such as high altitude or heat, may also be improved with BCAAs.

How Much Is Usually Taken by Athletes?

Some research has shown that supplemental BCAAs (typically 10 to 20 grams per day) do not result in meaningful changes in body composition,1 nor do they improve exercise performance or enhance the effects of physical training.2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 However, BCAA supplementation may be useful in special situations, such as preventing muscle loss at high altitudes and prolonging endurance performance in the heat.8, 9 One controlled study gave triathletes 6 grams per day of BCAA for one month before a competition, then 3 grams per day from the day of competition until a week following. Compared with a placebo, BCAAs restored depleted glutamine stores and immune factors that occur in elite athletes, and led to a reported one-third fewer symptoms of infection during the period of supplementation.10 Studies by one group of researchers suggest that BCAA supplementation may also improve exercise-induced declines in some aspects of mental functioning.11, 12, 13
