  • Produce 250 percent greater muscle growth than regular BCAA.*
  • Provide enhanced bioavailability.*
  • Absorb faster and are better utilized by the body.*
  • Are ultra-pure and highly concentrated.*

Leucine: The Anabolic Spike

BCAA Structured Peptides includes 1175 mg of leucine, by far the most important amino acid for lifters and athletes. Leucine has a 10 times greater impact on protein synthesis than any other amino acid.*

Leucine essentially "turns on" muscle protein synthesis which stimulates muscle growth. Leucine is unique in its ability to stimulate skeletal muscle protein synthesis.*

3 Steps to Superior BCAA

Biotest Structured Peptides are produced from peptide enhanced whey-protein isolate, utilizing a three-step process:

Whey-protein isolate is hydrolyzed into very small peptide forms using selective enzymes to break apart targeted leucine peptide and BCAA-peptide bonds.*

Afterward, small peptide formations are extracted from the hydrolyzed whey by passing the mixture through a series of filters, ending with nanofiltration.*

Next, the nano-mixture undergoes a final reaction phase to further enhance its total leucine and BCAA content.*

The end result is a highly refined mixture of leucine and BCAA di- and tripeptides that provides the body with the greatest effects from leucine/BCAA supplementation.*

Di- and Tripeptide Science

Unlike regular free-form amino acids, the uptake of di- and tripeptides is achieved through a very specific, high-capacity intestinal transporter (PEPT-1), which can lead to a larger and more rapid spike in blood levels of these crucial anabolic signals.*

How to Use BCAA Structured Peptides

There are several effective usage protocols to choose from:

Consume one scoop (5 grams) with meals.

Consume between meals for accelerated recovery and enhanced protein synthesis.*

Add to any protein shake to "spike" the anabolic effects.*

Consume one serving before bed to facilitate recovery from training.*

Take one serving before and after workouts to support an anabolic stimulus and reduce perceived effort and mental fatigue during prolonged exercise.*

Use during strict fat-loss diets to prevent muscle loss (catabolism) and metabolism slowdown.*
