What Are Protected BCAA Capsules?

Protected BCAA is a revolutionary branched chain amino acid (BCAA) supplement, which is designed to ensure that the absolute maximum level of BCAA’s are absorbed by the muscles with each and every serving. Protected BCAA from THE PROTEIN WORKS™ contains a blend of the branched chain amino acids, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, in an optimal 2:1:1 ratio. These amino acids are metabolised in the muscles themselves and are contained within a unique, delayed release capsule. TPW™ have formulated Protected BCAA for those athletes who are truly dedicated to their training, who require a BCAA supplement which delivers maximum benefits each and every time.

Every capsule of Protected BCAA contains 600mg of the branched chain amino amino acids L Leucine, L Isoleucine and L Valine. TPW™ have designed Protected BCAA especially for those serious about their training, who are looking for a ground-breaking BCAA supplement to ensure that their muscles receive the maximum level of branched chain amino acids with each serving.

Protected BCAA- Delayed Release Capsule Technology

Protected BCAA is the result of months of extensive research in the lab at here at TPW™ HQ. At THE PROTEIN WORKS™, we are committed to changing the game when it comes to sports nutrition, and bringing the highest quality supplements to our loyal TPW™ faithful. Protected BCAA is completely unique in the world of sports nutrition the as the amino acid blend is protected by a ground-breaking, acid resistant capsule which is designed to ensure a delayed release of the BCAA’s within. This means that the BCAA’s are only released once they reach the intestines, which means a huge increase in the bioavailability and absorption, ensuring a higher percentage of the BCAA’s can be absorbed by the muscles.

Why are BCAA’s important?

Amino acids are the “building blocks” of protein. Each capsule of Protected BCAA contains the three branched chain amino acids: Leucine, Valine and Isoleucine. As we all know, it is scientifically proven that protein provides a wide range of benefits, including the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Therefore, consuming a diet which is high in quality protein will ensure the body receives a good source of these BCAA’s. However, studies conducted by sports scientists have shown the difficulty in reaching the optimal dosages and ratio of BCAA’s through regular food alone. It’s for this reason that Protected BCAA was created, to maximise the levels of these branched chain amino acids absorbed by the muscles from every capsule.

How Often Should I Take TPW™ Protected BCAA Capsules?

We recommend that you take 3 capsules of Protected BCAA, between 2 and 4 times per day, depending on your training needs and requirements. As each 3 capsule serving contains 1800mg of branched chain amino acids, this will ensure that your daily dose will be between 3600mg and 7200mg of BCAA’s, depending on the number of servings you take.

How are Protected BCAA Capsules Packaged?

Protected BCAA comes in our unique letter-box friendly container which is foil sealed for ultimate freshness. Due to its innovative dimensions and packaging style, this ensures that your TPW™ pill order will be waiting on your door mat, even if you’re not home at the time of delivery. Just to note, larger sizes may be supplied in small multi-packs to ensure the maximum freshness of your larger order.
