The milk protein source in the Body Attack BCAA Shots naturally provides a high proportion of the branched chain amino acids such as L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine, which are also known as BCAA. The body cannot synthesise the BCAA endogenously, because of their structure. Therefore, it relies on its uptake through the daily diet. The same also applies to the other 5 essential amino acids, namely L-Methionine, L-Phenylalanine, L-Threonine, L-Tryptophan and L-Lysine, which are contained in the BCAA Shots. These occur mainly in protein-rich foods like fish, meat, vegetables and egg.
A varied, balanced diet should easily be able to meet the daily demand of BCAA. However, high physical exertion through sports cause the body´s demand to increase sharply. Thus, Body Attack BCAA Shots can be a useful supplement. The Body Attack Shot delivers a quantity of 1.8 g BCAA and 2 g essential amino acids.
Moreover, the shot contains only 0.9 g lactose, and is thus well tolerated in case of slight lactose intolerance. The hydrolysed whey proteins are rendered a fruity flavour and mixed with sweeteners, so as to avoid the typical bitter taste in the mouth.
1. What are the other effects of the BCAA Shots?
The body especially needs vitamin B6 to maintain the metabolic balance. Vitamin B6 plays a key role in protein metabolism and may contribute to the regulation of hormonal activity. Therefore, the water-soluble vitamin B 6 should not be absent in the hydrolysed whey proteins in the Body Attack BCAA Shot. The combination of vitamin B6 and the hydrolysed whey proteins contribute to the build-up and maintenance of muscle mass. Therefore, the strength athletes preferably take the BCAA Shots of Body Attack in preparation for a competition. On the contrary, the endurance athletes, such as marathon runners take it before and after extreme physical exertion.
2. Worth knowing: What is the whey protein hydrolysate?
Whey protein is a by-product of cheese production and can be processed to whey protein hydrolysate using a special manufacturing process.
This provides an easy-to-digest dietary protein. This is because the whey proteins occur already in small fragments, in the so-called peptide form. These are short-chain amino acids, which are composed of 2 to 10 amino acids. The decomposition of the protein-splitting enzymes which lasts longer with other sources of protein such as meat, fish, eggs and nuts, is taken over in the body by the gastrointestinal tract.
