ALRI Chain'd Out Engineered BCAA Berry Banana - 900 Grams (32oz.) (90 Servings)
ALRI Chain'd Out Engineered BCAA Berry Banana sets a standard for optimal performance supplementation. ALRI Chain'd Out Engineered BCAA Berry Banana allows everyone to enjoy supraphysiological and aesthetic results with Non-Hormonal Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s).The true value of ALRI Chain'd Out Engineered BCAA Berry Banana supplementation is finally well established both in literature and in real world application: Anabolic (muscle building) stimuliis their true value rather than wasting good proteins to catabolism (muscle wasting) and more money landing in your toilet.
What Are BCAA’s?
BCAA’s are the branch chain amino acids leucine, valine and isoleucine. Also note that all amino acids are derived from the assimilation of proteins. BCAA’s are not only 3 of the paramount 18-22 amino acids (as in your body cannot make them and needs them to live), they alone also make up about 70% of your muscle cellular pool and cellular structure. Unfortunately, BCAAs are lost (...muscle loss) at a rapid rate during training and during calorie deficient diets. The result is less muscle and the need to replenish these muscle mainstays…or better yet, trigger an anabolic environment that fosters nutrient super-over-compensation where we need it- for accelerated muscular growth. Why else do we train?
Benefits of Chain’d Out:

Frequently Asked Questions
Q:I use another brand of BCAA’s, what makes Chain’d Out so special?
A:Other than ALR Industries winning best tasting formula and #1 BCAA matrix in both Australia and New Zealand? Well, all BCAA products have value. Most are simply energy substrates during catabolic or caloric restricted periods. If you are losing 50-66% of your BCAA supplementation, it is not only non-cost effective and weak in anti-catabolic support but it is also not anabolic. Chain’d Out is without a doubt the only time release anabolic and anticatabolic formula available. Gain lean mass now!
Q:Don’t I Get Enough BCAA’S In My Protein Shake? I Thought My Protein gave me all the Amino Acids I needed.
A:That depends upon how hard you train and how much lean mass you want. BCAAs are about 70% of total muscle protein cell weight. When you train, your body often dips into these muscle cells to steal BCAAs as a source of energy to keep the muscles working. When this happens you lose lean mass and much of your hard work is lost. Any BCAA product will help, but the goal is not just to decrease the amount of lean mass/ BCAAs lost from training and stress. The goal is to get the anabolic (growth) pay off you’re working for. This requires properly protected BCAAs and a time-release delivery such as we have created with our unique alphahydroxy-ester technology. Get all you pay for, not just a few % and start seeing and felling the diff erence today.
Q: Do I use Chain’d Out Before I Train or After?
A: In all honesty all three: Before, during and after training. Not only does Chain’d Out taste amazing and have a refreshing pro-recover affect you feel, it assures proper hydration and the strongest anabolic and anti-catabolic environment. We have had amazing positive mental and physiological results reported from mixing 1-3 servings of Chain’d Out to the appropriate amount of cold water and drinking between meals. This of course includes while training or in the middle of the night. However, if you only have one chance to enjoy a serving of your favorite flavor of Chain’d Out, then drink it 15 minute prior to training.
Q: Do I Take it with My Protein Shake or Meal?
A: All proteins break down into amino acids and some compete for muscle receptor sites and/or enzymes. The result is something good may get kicked out, like BCAAs. Since Chain’d Out passes through the GI rather quickly, you simply need to be sure you have not consumed proteins for 2 hours prior or 20-30 minutes after ingestion. Pretty simple, huh?
Q:I Noticed you didn’t add any form of Glutamine to Chain’d Out. Why?
A:As mentioned prior, amino acids can compete for muscle cell receptors. They can also compete for GI uptake and digestion. Some studies support glutamine and BCAAs are examples but there is far more to the issue.
Metabolism of oral/dietary amino acids by the gut and liver has a major impact on the amino acid profile reaching systemic (whole body) circulation. Specific examples include removal of nearly 100% of dietary glutamine and glutamate, 60% of threonine, and 40% of phenylalanine during the absorption process largely by oxidative degradation (degradation to carbon/ glucose, ammonia and uric acid). The top exceptions to this pattern of modifi cations are the BCAAs. Over 80% of dietary content of leucine, valine, and isoleucine directly makes their way to blood circulation. Unfortunately, once they make it to muscle cells and the brain (other organs as well) they are easily converted into glucose and glycogen (sugar) due to several physiological action/reaction factors. Unless, of course, they are in a protected time-release anti-catabolic/anabolic matrix.
- 1) Hyperammonemia is an over-abundance of ammonia in the body resulting from the breakdown of amino acids to ammonia and glucose (gluconeogenesis for energy) which in turn increases the utilization of branched-chain amino acids in muscle. This is especially prominant when ketoglutarate is low, and is further enhanced by glutamine depletion. Sounds like more glutamine would be cool then, huh? (At the right time… it is)Unfortunately not only is glutamine the most abundant amino acid, it’s also the most abundant gluconeogenic amino acid in the human body. In fact its conversion to glucose is about equal to that of alanine. The kidneys alone produce about 25% of whole body glucose production… from glutamine. Now ponder the additional amount converted to glucose in muscles and other organs then consider just how much circulatory and muscle bound ammonia waste results. Now think about reconsidering the first paragraph again: More ammonia (hyperammonemia) means more BCAAs utilized for energy in/by muscle resulting in lean mass loss. Therefore, a signifi cant increase in blood glutamine concentration can signal hyperammonemia and thus increased BCAA/lean muscle loss. You know that ammonia smell you run into all over the gym? Yup, that is the smell of muscle loss. Is it you?
- 2) Tyrosine, which increases levels of dopamine and norepinephrine, is also one of our substrates for glutamine. Tyrosine competes with BCAAs absorption into the brain and low tyrosine can cause loss of energy, fatigue and depression. Since glutamine is a substrate of tyrosine, ingesting BCAAs and glutamine together potentially hinders performance as well resulting in lower intensity and less productive training or performances.
- 3) An interesting study on BCAAs aff ects upon fatigue was conducted in Japan: First Department of Internal Medicine, Okayama University Medical School, 5-1, 2-chome, Shikata-cho, 700 Okayama, Japan.
The molar ratio of excitatory amino acid neurotransmitters (glutamate and aspartate) to inhibitory amino acid neurotransmitters (raminobutyric acid, GABA, and glycine) in the brain was diminished in acute hepatic failure rats with hyperammonemia, brain edema, and abnormal electroencephalograms. The ratio was further decreased with a marked elevation of arterial and brain ammonia levels 30 min after ammonium acetate was administered i.p. to hepatic failure rats. A continuous infusion of a branched chain amino acid (BCAA) solution before and after the ammonia loading eff ectively reversed the ammoniainduced lowering of this ratio; high ammonia contents in the brain were concomitantly decreased. Infusing glutamate instead of the BCAA solution failed to produce similar eff ects probably because of limited entry of glutamate into the brain. The above results suggest that excitatory and inhibitory amino acid neurotransmitter ratios (glutamate, aspartate, and GABA) are positively aff ected by BCAAs. In short, BCAA supplementation reduced brain/physical fatigue. So more muscle and better performance if we simply don’t mix glutamine with BCAAs.Glutamine is paramount to health and recovery, but timing is everything.
Q: Does Chain’d Out Contain Any Sugars? I’m on a Keto Diet.
A: No, and more importantly it’s far more difficult for alpha-hydroxy-ester protected BCAAs to convert by way of gluconeogenesis to glucose resulting in greater fat stores being used as energy substrates. By adding anti-stress and anti-cortisol compounds to the Chain’d Out matrix the normal triggers of gluconeogenesis are reduced thus allowing for increased anabolism. Kind of cool, huh? Many who have added a serving of Chain’d Out to their morning cardio have noted the obvious increase in fat loss yet commented on increased lean mass.
About ALR Industries
Welcome to the ALR Industries website. As you look around, you will notice that their corporate philosophy is “Adapt, Migrate or Die.” Upon being diagnosed with CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease), ALR Industry's founder faced the choice of “Adapt, Migrate or Die” because his life was at stake after years of a high stress life, full- contact sports and high dose intake of whey protein. He chose to “Adapt” and in doing so, sought to create a group of unique products that would help him and others avoid the damaging effects of Whey and Soy protein.
He began working with top scientists and chemists for over 10 years to formulate and perfect the highest level of human utilization of a whole protein matrix formula. This formula, with co-factors took into account precise and exact enzymatic conversions, and utilizations rates, for all amino acids that the human body needed for optimum health and performance edge. He succeeded in developing HumaPro, a unique formula that consisted of exact ratios of pharmaceutical essential amino acids and co-factors that helps aid health in many ways:
- Significant reduction in physiological toxins
- Increased lean muscle mass
- Decreased fat mass
- Decreased stress hormones production
- Pre-digested nutrients for far greater assimilation and utilization

CEO & Founder
Entrepreneur or Legend? Author L. Rea has accomplished in a few short years than what most people will in their entire lifetime. His focused attitude of “Adapt, Migrate or Die” is what drives his success and the global accomplishments of ALR Industries.
As a young boy in Palo Alto, California, Author discovered his love of health and fitness through multiple martial arts. He quickly rose through the ranks to achieve 2 coveted Black Belts. In his teens as he progressed in karate, kendo and ju-jitsu, Author began weight training to increase his speed, strength and muscle size. He soon began competing in different fitness competitions from martial arts tournaments and cage fighting to bodybuilding and powerlifting. Other competitors recognized his growing knowledge base resulted in increasing success. Shortly thereafter he began coaching elite athletes like Mr. Universe, Milos Sarcev and Ironman Pro, Toney Freeman. He also began working with other top sports coaches Charles Poliquin and Nelson Ayotte, as well as many others. Author combined his love of coaching with his thirst for knowledge and began to advance his journey to study, research and validate as much as he could about the human body’s nutritional needs. His goals was to provide significant physiological health and performance enhancement through working with (rather than against) the human body.
Author was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease in his 30s, which he attributes primarily to years of full contact sports and burning the candle at both ends for nearly two decades, along with the added stress of upon his kidneys from the excessive by-product waste of high dose intakes of whey proteins. Upon learning his diagnosis, Author began leveraging his previous intense study of Physiology, Chemistry Bio-Science, Kinesiology, Pharmacology and Biological Kinetics to create a group of unique products that would help him and others avoid the damaging effects of Whey and Soy protein. Author worked with top scientists and chemists over 10 years to formulate and perfect the highest level of human utilization of a whole protein matrix formula. This formula, with co-factors took into account precise and exact enzymatic conversions, and utilizations rates, for all amino acids that the human body needed for optimum health and performance edge. He succeeded by developing HumaPro.
