SSN’s BCAA powder is a potent and precisely balanced blend of the Branched Chain Amino Acids – L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine, which are important building blocks of lean muscle tissue. In addition to their lean muscle building properties, BCAA’s are metabolized directly in the muscle, and may thereby improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acids for repair and rebuilding. Clinical studies show that BCAA’s taken prior to exercise spares muscle BCAA reserves thereby providing an effective anti-catabolic (tissue sparing) effect, whilst BCAA’s taken post-exercise with a carbohydrate and protein shake, supports muscle building and recovery efforts.

To maximise the BCAA’s anabolic / anti-catabolic properties, consider adding our micronised

to your supplement plan as well as increasing your daily protein intake by way of a high quality pure protein supplement such as our

SSN Anabolic Muscle Builder

This advanced muscle building formulation contains a scientifically formulated protein-carbohydrate blend, designed to stimulate the anabolic hormone insulin whilst simultaneously providing an array of anabolic and anti-catabolic nutrients, which synergistically support lean muscle growth, enhance protein synthesis and speed post workout recovery.


SSN 100% Whey Protein

BCAA’s are essential amino acids that are abundant in muscle tissue and provide anti-catabolic support, by reducing the amount of protein breakdown during exercise, as well as assisting with post exercise recovery. Glutamine serves as fuel for the immune system, provides anti-catabolic support and is important in maximising protein synthesis which is key to recovery and lean muscle growth.
