PRODUCT ONLY AVAILABLE IN:
Exclusive formula of branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) whose main function is to make up a large part of skeletal muscle. That is why it is recommended that athletes and very physically active people, supplement their diet with these amino acids.
Its formula can help:
Reduce the symptoms of post-workout muscle soreness.
Reduce the risk of muscle catabolism (muscle loss).
Optimize physical performance during activities.
Promote the development of muscle mass.

The key to well-defined muscles
Exclusive formula of branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) whose main function is to make up a large part of skeletal muscle. That is why it is recommended that athletes and very physically active people, supplement their diet with these amino acids. BCAA’s can not be produced naturally by the body, so its consumption is vital to have an adequate protein synthesis and recover faster at the end of physical activities. SO2SPORT BCAA’s offer an 8:1:1 ratio.
These are the only amino acids that muscles use as fuel, so if we want to avoid catabolism (muscle loss) we must always include BCAA’s in our diet. When BCAA’s are taken, an anti-catabolic effect is obtained, due to the fact that these amino acids preserve the muscular tissue during hard exercise routines. Best of all, they do not provide you with sugar or carbohydrates, so taking them is ideal for those who restrict the consumption of high-calorie foods.
Unlike other supplements to gain muscle mass, BCAA’s will not cause the body to take on a “bloated” appearance, but will greatly support the muscles to tone up and get a better appearance.
The BCAA’s not only help to conserve muscle mass, but they also provide the whole organism with an anabolic hormonal environment, providing energy to the tissues, helping to build lean fat and reducing post-workout recovery processes.
These amino acids can also support with weight loss but without reducing the muscle mass you already have.
Continuous intake of BCAA’s has been shown to have a positive effect on mood and mental function in high performance athletes. Some studies have shown that BCAAs may help decrease the amount of serotonin in the brain, a hormone that is linked to feelings of tiredness. Therefore, by reducing it we can enjoy better mental clarity and reduced mental fatigue.
Leucine is considered the most important branched amino acid because it is a nutrient that must always be present in our body to ensure that the elements consumed will be used in its entirety. This amino acid can greatly help to promote insulin secretion by stimulating the pancreas.
It is an ingredient that also allows the creation of clean, dense and solid muscle mass, given its prominent role in the activation of protein synthesis. An adequate intake of leucine together with regular sports practice can help to strengthen and increase the size of the muscles. Leucine is also linked to weight loss because it increases metabolic rate during exercise sessions. If you have blood sugar problems, leucine is ideal for keeping it under control. This amino acid is able to substitute glucose during periods of fasting, a property that the other 2 amino acids do not have. Similarly, leucine has been linked to increased production of human growth hormone.
One of its main functions is the production of energy. Our body breaks down amino acids into a molecule called acetyl CoA, once this molecule is formed, it is burned in order to produce energy. In this case, isoleucine can contribute to the cells having enough energy to perform all their functions, even when you are not getting a good amount of carbohydrates from your diet.
Isoleucine also supports muscle development and early recovery after exercise routines. It is an isomer of leucine. It is important for blood glucose regulation, as well as being involved in blood clotting processes.
Other of its most well-known benefits are:
-Control of blood sugar levels
-Increased hemoglobin production
-Blocking of vitamin B3 elimination through the kidneys
Necessary to increase muscle volume as it supports the formation of different types of tissues. It plays a necessary role in the nervous system and cognitive function. It produces a strong improvement in the treatment of insomnia as well as nervousness, and certain disorders related to muscular tissues. When you have injuries, valine helps in the proper healing process.
In some cases, valine has been shown to help in the treatment of some diseases , and disorders of both the liver and gallbladder.
By ingesting this essential amino acid, a proper functioning of the immune system is ensured. We can find valine in various foods of animal and vegetable origin, however, sometimes the food has gone through certain processes that make the food does not have enough nutrients, so it is always recommended to take supplements that give us what we are looking for.
Are BCAA’s a medicine
No, BCAA’s SO2SPORT is not a drug. Because it is a dietary supplement, it works according to the body’s priorities and starts working where the body needs it most. SO2SPORT is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
What is the shelf life of BCAA’s?
By FDA (Food and Drug Administration) requirements we must establish a date that indicates the expiration date of the supplement. Once you have purchased the supplement, you should consume it over a period of no more than 3 years. However, the benefits of BCAA’s can still be obtained even after the date on the package has passed.
What is the main benefit of BCAA’s?
The benefits of BCAAs or branched chain amino acids are numerous, these are the best known:
– Promote protein synthesis and prevent muscle catabolism (muscle loss).
– They help preserve glycogen, as the branched amino acids themselves can easily be used as fuel.
– Improve performance in aerobic and anaerobic activities
– Reduce post-workout muscle soreness symptoms
– They support the immune system, increasing for example the endogenous production of glutamine, an important non-essential amino acid and the most abundant in muscle.
If I take BCAA’s will my muscles grow very drastically?
No, simply by taking SO2SPORT BCAA’s your muscles will not grow disproportionately. As with other supplements, nutrition and physical activity play an important role in transforming your body. BCAA’s are an additional element that can help you in the process of increasing muscle mass, however, they should always be combined with a high protein diet and routines focused on the muscles we want to increase/tonify.
How should I take BCAA’s?
It is recommended to take BCAA’s after you have finished your workout to help your muscles recover faster.
On non-exercise days, it should be taken in the morning and between meals.
Mix two measures (10g) with water. Consume one serving per day during and after physical training.
