The biggest problem with building muscle is making sure that your body has what it need to build new lean muscle. That's where Surge BCAA steps in and takes the reins. BCAA are the branch chain amino acids that are responsible for building new lean muscle. They include leucine, isoleucine & valine. BCAA supplementation, for people with low dietary protein intake, can promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth over time. It can also be used to prevent fatigue in novice athletes. Leucine plays an important role in muscle protein synthesis, while isoleucine induces glucose uptake into cells. Further research is needed to determine valine’s role in a BCAA supplement. Supplementing BCAAs prevents a serum decline in BCAAs, which occurs during exercise. A serum decline would normally cause a tryptophan influx into the brain, followed by serotonin production, which causes fatigue.

BCAA dosages are based on goals. The standard dosage for isoleucine is 48-72mg/kg (assuming a non-obese person). The standard leucine dosage is between 2-10g. A combination dose is 6g of combined BCAAs, with a balanced ratio of leucine and isoleucine. Isoleucine is used for increasing glucose uptake into cells, while leucine is used to improve muscle protein synthesis. Leucic acid (synonymous with the term α-hydroxyisocaproic acid and the latter's acronym HICA) is a metabolite of the Branched Chain Amino Acids known as Leucine; leucine initially goes into one of two metabolic pathways (KIC or HMB) and then some of the KIC is further converted into HICA.
