Description
Formulated with 2 Powerful Ingredients:

HICA (Alpha-Hydroxyisocaproic Acid):
  • Support Lean Muscle Mass*
  • Train Harder and Longer*
  • Less Soreness Between Workouts*
Alpha KIC (Alpha Ketoisocaproate):
  • Muscle Cells Recovery
  • Increase Muscle Strength
  • Reduce Muscle Damage During Workouts.*
Sequenced 2:1:1 Ratio for Maximum Performance.
2 - Leucine, 1 - Isoleucine, 1 – Valine.
Ratio offering an effective path to stimulate protein synthesis.

PMD's BCAA offers essential amino acids that your body can't synthesize from other compounds, and that must be obtained thru diet. Branched chain amino acids have a strong and potent history of providing the means necessary to accelerate recovery times, support lean muscle mass, enhance endurance, and increase performance.* Coupled with vitamin B-6 and B-12, PMD's BCAA helps boost your natural energy levels so you can maximize your potential.*

Supplement Facts

FOR PRE-WORKOUT: For activity less than 1 hour in duration, mix 1 scoop of PMD’s BCAA with 8–10 oz. of cold water 30 minutes before exercise/training to maximize your performance and endurance.

FOR INTRA-WORKOUT: For activity lasting more than 1 hour, mix 1 scoop of PMD’s BCAA with 8–10 oz. of cold water during your exercise/training (ie. Running, Cycling, Swimming, etc...) and drink throughout.

FOR POST-WORKOUT: Mix 1 scoop of PMD’s BCAA with 8–10 oz. of cold water and use immediately following your exercise/training to maximize recovery and fight fatigue.

To be used as part of a physical conditioning program. Contents may settle. Moisture and humidity can cause clumping and discoloration. Discard after expiration date.

Stack PMD’s BCAA with any pre-workout supplement (Cardio Cuts®, ACG3®, Pump Fuel® v.2, or Pump Fuel® INSANITY) to enhance workout performance. You can also add PMD’s BCAA to your favorite protein (like Amplify® Smoothies or Amplify® XL) immediately following exercise for greater recovery.*

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.
