Gold Standard BCAA is enhancing the recovery process. With 5mg BCAAs, 250mg of Wellmune, and 200mg of Rhodiola, this BCAA product makes for a potent recovery drink, with ingredients geared toward not only faster muscle recovery, but increased immunity and endurance as well. Designed to be taken intra-workout, Gold Standard BCAA allows you to train longer and harder than before, while also giving you the ingredients needed to protect your body’s immune system to create for a healthy workout, and of course the BCAAs geared toward protein synthesis and enhanced recovery.
5mg BCAAs(2:1:1 ratio): Branched Chain Amino Acids made up of valine, leucine, and isoleucine create for increased protein synthesis. These three amino acids, when taken properly, can greatly improve the overall success you have in the weight room. The combination of these three amino acids increases your protein synthesis, reduces recovery time, and allows you to get to your next workout faster.
250 mg Wellmune: A natural ingredient that is proven to strengthen the body’s key immune defenses; by adding this ingredient, Optimum has added another dimension to the traditional BCAA product. How does it work? This ingredient activates our body's innate immune defenses that aid in defending the body by priming human immune defenses. Wellmune strengthens the function of key immune cells, maintains energy, vitality, and mental clarity, and activates cells that fight effects of stress.
Rhodiola: Thought to strengthen the nervous system and fight depression, enhance immunity, aid endurance, and improve energy levels among other things, along with increasing muscle recovery. Adding rhodiola allows athletes to train harder and longer in the gym, and makes for the perfect pair when put alongside BCAAs - now athletes can train harder and longer, while still reaping the benefits of decreased recovery times.
I wanted to like this so badly, it had the makings of greatness. Perfect flavor combo, hitting all the good ingredient marks, conveniently multipurpose, but sadly that was just too good to be true.
I choked it down out, and you should have seen the violent face reactions. So sad. It's just not tasty.
