Resetting the Standard with Great taste and an incredible formula! Northern’s Lifestyle BCAA delivers the perfect balance of amino acids to help build, repair, and maintain lean muscle mass.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) refers to three amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
BCAA supplementation can promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth over time. Supplementation 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. 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. Supplementing with Northern’s BCAA’s can drastically reduce fatigue during workouts. Properly dosed BCAA’s have also been shown to accelerate recovery, spare any muscle loss, and help ensure no delayed onset muscular soreness.
This amino acid is essential for recovery and the successful transport of other amino acids, electrolytes, and nutrients across the intestinal barrier. When hydration is a premium during training glutamine helps ensure nutrients carried in water get absorbed properly.
This osmolyte has been proven to assist in endurance performance by maintaining proper water balance and neurotransmission in working muscles. It has also been shown to assist electrolytes in and out of the muscle while training as well and is an essential component to our BCAA formula.
L-Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid found in the diet. It is a dietary supplement used mostly by athletic people because it is the amino acid that directly produces nitric oxide via the nitric oxide synthase enzymes.
All Northern Supplements are pharmaceutical grade manufactured in Canada. They are also tested for purity, potency, and accuracy.
