ULTIMATE POST-WORKOUT FORMULA
  • L-LEUCINE ETHYL ESTER HCL
  • L-ISOLEUCINE ETHYL ESTER HCL
  • L-VALINE ETHYL ESTER HCL
  • L-Glutamine Ethyl Ester HCL

WHAT ARE BCAA’S?

Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are referred to as Branch ChainAmino Acids (BCAA) and are a part of the Essential Amino Acid family. BCAA’s are important for muscle recuperation, muscle energy and muscle growth.*
HOW DOES BCAA BLAST™ WORK?

BCAA’s can not be produced by the body and must be suppliedthrough your diet. BCAA’s enter your bloodstream and attach directly to muscle where they repair damaged muscle tissue. This process helps ensure maximum muscle recovery and growth!*
WHAT ELSE DOES BCAA BLAST™ CONTAIN?

BCAA Blast™ contains Glutamine Ethyl Ester HCL, an aminoacid that delivers muscles with the necessary proteins requiredto recover from excessive training. BCAA BLAST™ also contains Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and Bioperine®. This combination of Vitamins aid in bioavailablity, while Bioperine® ensuresmaximum absorption of the primary BCAA ingredients.*

Health Notes

Branched-Chain Amino Acids

Branched-Chain Amino Acids
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Athletic Performance and Mental Decline During Exercise at Extreme Temperature
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Some research has shown that branched-chain amino acids help prevent muscle loss at high altitudes, prolong endurance performance in the heat, and improve exercise-induced declines in mental functioning. (more)
Athletic Performance and Post-Exercise Infection at Extreme Temperature
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Some research has shown that branched-chain amino acids may support immune fuction and improve infection at high altitudes and prolong endurance performance in the heat. (more)
Kidney Failure
Dose: Refer to label instructions
(more)
Athletic Performance and Mental Decline During Exercise at Extreme Temperature
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Some research has shown that supplemental branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) (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, BCAA 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

Kidney Failure
Dose: Refer to label instructions

The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAAs are considered essential amino acids because human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet.

    Comments about SNI 1012169 SNI™ BCAA BLAST - Watermelon:

    I have been using SNI's BCAA Blast for about 6 weeks now. I use it 3 or 4 times a week after my workouts, and I have to say I really like it. Since I started using it I feel like I have more enrgy, less soreness, and less fatigue after working out. In my experience the one thing other than effectivenes that will get me to use a product or not is taste! The taste is awesome, and I am not even a big watermelon fan, but it mixes well with water and tastes like Kool Aid. Definitely worth a try.
