BOOM is a recovery and growth supplement containing three branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s): Leucine, isoleucine and valine.
BCAA supplementation, can promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth over time. It can also be used to prevent fatigue in athletes.
Leucine plays an important role in muscle protein synthesis, while isoleucine induces glucose uptake into cells. 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.
BCAAs are important to ingest on a daily basis.
