MHP - BCAA 3300 - 120 Tablets
Powered by twice the LEUCINE! Make your body an ANABOLIC POWERHOUSE! MHP's BCAA 3300 sets a new standard in strength-building sports supplementation by providing the most highly anabolic branched chain amino acid complex in a timed release formula. BCAA 3300 is the first and only supplement to deliver a highly anabolic 4:1:1 BCAA ratio, making it far superior to all other BCAA products on the market that use a 2:1:1 ratio.
The newest scientific research reports that the amino acid leucine is the anabolic powerhouse due to its major role in activating protein synthesis and simulating a higher rate of muscle growth and repair via the mTOR anabolic pathway. This makes leucine the most critical BCAA for promoting overall protein synthesis for peak muscle building. BCAA 3300 utilizes a highly anabolic 4:1:1 branched chain amino acids ratio that contains four times the amount of the leucine to isoleucine and valine. The unique timed release delivery system provides a steady supply of these key BCAAs. This allows for a continual supply and maximum absorption and utilization of these critical aminos for superior strength and muscle building, anti-catabolic muscle protection, energy production and recovery over conventional BCAA formulas.

- Reduce Fat, Increase Strength and Mass
Ingestion of a supplement containing BCAAs while following an 8-week resistance training program resulted in greater decrease in body fat, an increase in lean mass and 10-RM strength gains on the bench press and squad versus ingestion of a whey supplement or a sports drink. (Jim Stoppani, et al., Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, 2009.)
- Leucine Critical For mTor Signal for Protein Synthesis
After exercise, recovery of muscle protein synthesis requires dietary protein or BCAAs to increase tissue levels of leucine in order to release the inhibition of the initiation factor 4 complex through the activation of the protein kinase mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR). Leucine's effect on mTOR is synergistic with insulin via the phosphoinositol 3-kinase signaling pathway. Together, insulin and leucine allow skeletal muscle to coordinate protein synthesis with physiological state and dietary intake. (Layne Norton and Donald Layman, Journal of Nutrition, 2006.)
- BCAAs and Leucine Improve Recovery and Reduce Soreness
Exercise may increase BCAA requirement, and BCAA supplementation before exercise attenuates the breakdown of muscle proteins during exercise. Leucine strongly promotes protein synthesis in skeletal muscle, suggesting that a BCAA supplement may attenuate muscle damage induced by exercise and promote recovery from the damage. Findings also suggest that BCAAs may be useful for muscle recovery following intense exercise, as BCAA supplementation before training decreased delayed-onset muscle soreness after squatting exercise. (Yoshiharu Shimomura, et al., Journal of Nutrition, 2006.)
- BCAAs Increase Endurance Exercise Capacity
Supplementation with BCAAs was shown to increase the lactate threshold before exhaustion in high-intensity exercise on a cycle ergometer. Subjects using BCAAs had noticeably higher plasma BCAA concentrations than the non-supplemented group, in addition to higher respiratory exchange ratio and both VO2 max and VO2 workload levels. These results suggest that BCAA supplementation may be effective to increase endurance exercise capacity. (Keitaro Matsumoto, et al., Journal of Nutritional Science Vitaminol, 2009.)
- Supplementation Prevents Catabolsim BCAA
Exercise is known to deplete serum BCAA levels via oxidation. BCAA supplementation before and after intense exercise has beneficial effects for decreasing exercise-induced muscle damage and promoting muscle protein synthesis. This suggests that BCAAs are a useful supplement in relation to exercise and sports. (Yoshiharu Shimomura, et al., Journal of Nutrition, 2004.)
- Leucine and MuscleProtein Metabolism
Studies indicate that meals supplemented with leucine can both acutely and over a longer period of time beneficially affect muscle protein anabolism. In elderly adults, even small amounts of ingested leucine can acutely improve muscle protein retention. The anabolic effect of extra leucine on muscle protein was observed in the elderly and the response of muscle protein synthesis following ingestion of small amounts of amino acids was greatly enhanced by additional leucine supplementation. (Christos Katsanos, et al., American Journal of Physiological and Endocrinological Metabolism, 2006.)
About Maximum Human Performance (MHP)
Like every other workout fanatic out there, you spend countless hours pumping iron to increase strength, add muscle mass and improve performance. Yet you also understand that to succeed in bodybuilding, powerlifting or sports, there is one requirement that is not to be handled haphazardly - supplementation. And when it comes to supplements, one brand stands out as the strongest in the industry: MHP!
MHP is the creation of former top-level bodybuilder Gerard Dente. When he was competing, Gerard constantly researched the best training techniques, diet strategies and other performance enhancement methods needed to gain a competitive edge. Yet it was his genius with supplementation that fueled him to be one of the biggest and strongest competitors of his day. In fact, Gerard was using ingredients like high doses of leucine, KIC, tribulus and arginine long before they became popular. He was convinced that athletes deserved better and decided to take some action by founding MHP.
Since its inception, MHP's corporate mission has been to develop premier science-based, research-driven sports supplements to help athletes achieve their greatest physical potential. Over the years, MHP has introduced many innovations and breakthroughs in sports nutrition. For instance, MHP was the first company to introduce arginine for nitric oxide production to the bodybuilding world way back in early 1999 (via ADNO - arginine derived nitric oxide), when the company launched the creatine/NO product TRAC. In addition, the patented 12-hour sustained release protein formula in Probolic-SR has been an unmatched industry standard since it was released in 2004. MHP was the first company to introduce the incredible blood-boosting power of EPO in 2008 with Dark Rage. And with new highly advanced GlycoCarn/KNO3 Nitrite-NO Technology now available in NO-BOMB, MHP continues to provide new and exclusive innovations in performance enhancing supplementation.
Because of its dedicated research and development, innovative formulations, clinically researched ingredients and cutting edge products, MHP has become the most trusted brand and industry leader among world-class athletes, pro bodybuilders, powerlifters, strongmen and fitness enthusiasts alike. The numerous world records that MHP athletes hold in powerlifting and strongman, plus the many top titles in bodybuilding, fitness and figure, signify how much our supplements are capable of helping athletes achieve. In addition, countless top lifting coaches and trainers also use and recommend MHP products.
"All of the elite athletes I work with use nutritional supplements," says Joe Carini, a former powerlifting champion who trains many top NFL stars and strongmen at Carini's House of Iron. "Because of my years of experience as a competitive powerlifter and supplement user, I recommend only MHP products to my athletes."
