We made it VERY clear to our R & D team – USPlabs Modern BCAA™ MUST be developed under these strict rules: BCAA Ratio formulation with mTOR activation in mind Ultra-Micronized Mix Clean No Artificial Colors Natural, refreshing taste No L-Glutamine Little Known Anabolic Pathway -mTOR If you've never heard of mTOR (and even if you have), listen up and listen good as this is one of THE most under-rated anabolic & protein synthesis pathways known to man And chances are you're not even coming close to maximizing its enormous potential. mTOR (Mammalian Target of Rapamycin) is a large proline-directed serine-threonine protein kinase that's responsible for a wide range of physiologic and metabolic functions in several cell types, including both adipocytes (fat cells) and myocytes (muscle cells) Among its many roles, mTOR is responsible for hypertrophic growth (an increase in muscle cell size, for example), protein synthesis and tissue morphogenesis As a result, compounds which target the regulatory pathways of mTOR have been highly sought out for quite some time A wide range of data have suggested that amino acids are capable of directly regulating mTOR signaling pathways in skeletal muscle (1, 2, 3, 4), including the possibility that they activate some of the cell signaling elements upstream from mTOR in the insulin/growth factor signaling pathway Leucine IS the StarBUT In other words, leucine is the star, but it also must be mentioned that the other two BCAA's, isoleucine & valine, need to be present in order to maximize results 8-1-1 BCAA Ratio With the above in mind, we've formulated USPlabs Modern BCAA™ with an 8-1-1 leucine-isoleucine-valine ratio In terms of the leucine, the reasoning here is that, from a strictly technical standpoint, the data displays that only leucine and those other amino acids structurally related to leucine are responsible for the increase in mTOR commonly associated with BCAA supplementation. Results & Value As you know, many people are doubling, tripling, even quadrupling their dosage of BCAAs with a 2:1:1 & 4:1:1 bias in order to achieve better results Given the fact that leucine is most likely the amino acid responsible for this effect, particularly in skeletal muscle, having a formula with an 8:1:1 ratio eliminates the need for such increased dosing. Effectively creating an enormous value in addition to the other benefits.
