Solgar BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acid) - 100 Vegetarian Capsules
Solgar BCAA are Branched Chain Amino Acid. Solgar BCAA are suitable for vegetarians. Solgar BCAA are sugar, salt and starch free. Solgar BCAA Plus supplies the three essential branched chain amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine in their pure, crystalline free forms. Long chains of molecularly bonded individual amino acids form protein. The body must first break these molecular (peptide) bonds for amino acid absorption to take place. Solgar BCAA free form amino acids are already in their simplest form (no peptide bonds) and can be readily absorbed into the bloodstream. Solgar BCAA Plus Vegicaps are free of corn, yeast, wheat, soy and dairy products and are formulated without the use of preservatives, artificial flavors or colors.
The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAAs are considered essential amino acids because human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet.

The Solgar Gold Standard
Solgar has been manufacturing fine quality nutritional supplements for over 60 years in an industry that is constantly evolving. Throughout these changes, they have never lost sight of their original mission - to provide consumers with the highest quality nutritional products and information to help promote optimal health. Their attention to detail from manufacturing through distribution has enabled us to set, maintain, and continually raise the Gold Standard for quality nutritional supplements, education, and service.
Researched, Science-Based Products. Solgar is known globally for producing innovative, science-based, efficacious products. All Solgar products have been thoroughly researched by their R & D department. They have a team of experts dedicated exclusively to research.
State-of-the-Art Manufacturing. Solgar's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility meets the highest standard for machinery, procedures, and quality control. This enables them to provide customers with the best quality products possible. With their own manufacturing, laboratory, and distribution facilities, Solgar ensures quality throughout the entire process.
Quality Control. Solgar has high standards for quality. They have a rigorous quality control system in place to test products at multiple stages – from raw material to finished product. All materials coming into their facility are subject to stringent tests to ensure they are the highest quality; any that don't meet their standards are rejected and sent back to suppliers. Solgar has its own on-site Quality Laboratory that ensures that each product leaving the door meets their Gold Standard for excellence. They don't just do one test on their products. They do many.
USP Water Purification System. Solgar invested over $1 million in a state-of-the-art USP reverse osmosis water purification system – widely considered the finest type of filtration available. This isn't required by Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), but the Solgar Gold Standard requires that they have the best system possible.
HEPA Air Filtration System. Air that circulates through the Solgar facility passes through a bank of HEPA filters that remove 99.9% of airborne particulates. Both air and water samples are routinely tested in Solgar's in-house laboratory.
Cleanliness. Solgar uses food-grade cleaners to sanitize our equipment between batches. They disassemble and clean all of their machinery after each formula change. In some cases, the equipment is broken down into hundreds of parts and may take up to eight hours to clean and reassemble. Walls, floors, and other surfaces are also cleaned before a manufacturing suite is used for another formula.
Gluten Free. Most Solgar products are gluten free.
Kosher Certified. Solgar selected KOF-K Kosher Supervision, an international organization that follows the strictest laws of the kosher observance, to certify their products.
Halal Certified. Solgar chose the Halal Food Authority (HFA), a U.K.-based organization that adheres to the strictest laws of Halal, to certify their products.
Aqueous Coated Tablets. Solgar was one of the first in the natural products industry to integrate a natural, water-based coating for all of their coated-tablet products as an alternative to using the more common solvent-based coating agent shellac (also known as pharmaceutical glaze). This natural coating improves disintegration and dissolution, providing better absorption of the nutrients.
Recyclable Amber Glass Bottles. Their recyclable glass bottles are non-leaching, non-porous, and odorless. Although these "old style" medicine bottles cost more, Solgar uses them because they protect against heat, light, and moisture.
Exclusive Distribution. Their specialty market demands innovative products that are unique and available in brands exclusive to their class of trade. Solgar is committed to distributing their products through fine health food retailers across the globe where customers can find the best products along with the best nutritional advice about them. Solgar's finished products are distributed from our own global distribution centers.
This is another way they ensure the integrity of their products.
Globally Recognized. Solgar is distributed throughout the world in over 60 different countries, with affiliate offices in the U.K., Spain, South Africa, and New Zealand.
