1. L-LEUCINE AND L-VALINE
Valine and leucine, the BCAA (Branched-chain amino acids) constitute about 1/3rd of muscle protein. On investigation, leucine was found to stimulate protein synthesis and it is also associated with the release of alanine, a gluconeogenic precursor. Supplementation of BCAA has shown to help in preferential and significant loss of visceral adipose tissue. It also helps maintain the performance level by increasing strength. 
Prolonged exercise and heavy training decrease glutamine concentration in the body which leads to immune impairment thereby increasing the susceptibility to infection. Recent studies reveal that acute intake of about 20 – 30 gram of glutamine does not have any ill effects and did not result in abnormal levels of plasma ammonia. 
Also, in another study, participants supplemented with l-glutamine showed a lower concentration of blood phosphorous than the placebo group. This suggests a positive outcome on fatigue reduction. The study concluded that supplementation of glutamine might be useful to enhance the immune function and defensive inflammatory reaction post workout. 
3. L-CITRULLINE AND DL-MALATE
Studies carried out to investigate the effects of citrulline malate shows that it helps improve anaerobic performance and decrease muscle soreness post exercise. In the randomised, double-blind study, 41 men performed two consecutive sessions of pectoral training. They were given 8-grams of citrulline in the first training session and a placebo in the 2nd session. A significant reduction in muscle soreness was seen after the training session. Thus, the study concluded that citrulline might help athletes who undergo intensive training. 
A study was conducted to investigate the effects of Alanine on physically active adults. The experimental group consisting of 16 healthy adults were supplemented with 5 gram of alanine and 1 gram of resistant starch while the control group was on 6 gram of only resistant starch for twenty-three days. Both the groups participated in 10 km run a trial and were assessed. Alanine supplementation seemed to help in improving the running time and reducing lactate concentration. . Another study showed that alanine supplementation appeared to enhance physical performance and executive function in middle aged participants after endurance exercise. 
A study was carried out on triathletes to investigate the effects of taurine on protein metabolism and oxidative stress. The results indicated that supplementation may be effective in reducing oxidative stress. Oxidative stress and free radicals might compromise the performance of an athlete. Taurine is also considered to be a potent antioxidant. It is believed to help in improving recovery after exercise. 
6. CAFFEINE ANHYDROUS
Coffee and caffeine are used by many to enhance their performance. A study was carried out to compare the effects of caffeine anhydrous (CAF) and coffee (COF) intake on sprint performance and strength. Fifty-four men participated in the study and they were evaluated on several parameters. The study concluded that CAF and CIF may be considered as pre-exercise caffeine sources in case of high-intensity workouts. 
1. WHO SHOULD USE MUSCLEXP BCAA ENERGY WITH ELECTROLYTE BLEND?
The product can be used by any healthy individual who wants to burn fat, increase muscle mass and enhance their performance and strength and also to recover after intense training.
2. WHAT’S IN THE MUSCLEXP ENERGY FORMULA?
MuscleXP Energy formula uses proven ratio of leucine, valine and isoleucine to support synthesis of muscle protein, and glutamine in the product may help fight muscle breakdown.
3. BCAA VS. FOOD – WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Amino acids in whey protein or food must be broken down first by liver and gut, which takes a longer time while BCAA is absorbed by the bloodstream directly and acts exclusively on the muscle cells.
