BCAA Optima

Turn Your Pains Into Gains: Reduce muscle inflammation and soreness, burn more fat, and recover faster*

While BCAAs alone are a great way to prevent muscle catabolism, increase strength, prioritize fat utilization, and enhance your ability to recover1,2, NutraKey’s Optima formula enhances these properties with the protective ingredient of taurine and the quick recovery effects of glutamine.

This means that not only will your body have the essential building blocks it needs to create lean mass (BCAAs), but that you’ll be minimizing the muscle damage and stress that takes place during all of your workouts.2,3

Are you sore two days after your workouts?

Known as “delayed onset muscle soreness” (DOMS), microscopic tears in your muscles and connective tissues inflame the surrounding tissue and make nerves much more sensitive than they would normally be. 5,6

While the tears in your muscles resulting from workouts do promote hypertrophy (expanding of muscle cell size) and hyperplasia (growth in the number of muscle cells), the resulting pain and inflammation behind your soreness are believed to significantly decrease both short-term strength and endurance.7

While certainly not permanent, the results of these short-term losses can diminish the productiveness of workouts over the following days and weeks – increasing the chance of net strength and muscle loss.7

This effect is even more pronounced due to dieting, intense workouts, or inadequate nutrition – times when we either have lower dietary levels of BCAAs or have used much of our BCAA and glutamine reserves.4,5,7

Promote Muscle Growth & Recovery, Not Muscle Inflammation*

While BCAAs and glutamine are thought to boost recovery by flooding your body with the key building blocks of protein and muscle, taurine has been shown in recent studies to protect and inhibit the cytokines that directly cause the damage and inflammation in muscle cells.6,8

When supplemented together, your muscles are still able benefit from the muscle tears they need to grow, but the negative side effects that slow growth and reduce comfort can be drastically diminished.8

As an added bonus, some studies show that BCAA supplementation may even activate the primary muscle growth pathway in your muscle tissue and while increasing protein synthesis.3

A High Potency Formula

NutraKey’s BCAA Optima is a high potency formula with a specific ratio of BCAAs, taurine, and glutamine that have been dosed to maximize absorption and muscle availability. Each serving of NutraKey ultra-micronized BCAA Optima provides the three free form branched chain amino acids; l-luecine, l-valine and l-isoleucine in the proper 2:1:1 ratio, along with 1.9 grams of taurine and 2.6 grams of glutamine.

In short, adding BCAA Optima to your supplement and nutrition regimen may help ensure that you the muscle and lean body mass that you’ve worked so hard for keeps on performing at the highest levels.5

L-Carnitine 3000

Turn Fat into Fuel: Optimize your body’s ability to convert fat into energy while enhancing performance and recovery*

Closely related to B vitamins and naturally found alongside healthy fats in avocadoes, dairy products, and red meat, L-Carnitine has been used extensively since the 1980s to promote fat-loss, increase energy levels, and protect the brain from free radical damage.*1

Primarily found in our muscle and brain tissues, L-Carnitine is essential in the process of transporting long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of our cells. Mitochondria (the energy creators of our bodies), is then able to oxidize this fat into adenosine triphosphate (ATP) or the essential fuel that our bodies need to contract muscles and do just about anything else.1

Without L-Carnitine, it’s difficult for fats to be burned as fuel, so our body resorts to other sources of energy like muscle protein and sugar (glycogen). The result is diminished muscle strength, slow growth, and most notably, stubborn fat reserves that may be extremely difficult to remove.1,5,6

By assisting your body to transform long-chain fatty acids into energy, L-Carnitine is used both as a dieting tool and as a pre-workout supplement.*8 Since L-Carnitine promotes fat as the primary source of energy, often greater amounts of glycogen are available in your muscles – allowing you to workout harder while ensuring that greater amounts of energy come from fat instead of muscle.*4

L-Carnitine also assists the body by preventing lactic acid from accumulating in your muscles (lactic acid creates the burning feeling when you’re near exhaustion), which means you’ll be able to workout longer and recover more quickly.*5,6

For Bulking, Dieting, and More

In short, since L-Carnitine can help limit the amount of new fat storage, it’s perfect for bulking or when trying to gain new, lean muscle. Since L-Carnitine also helps mobilize your body’s fat stores and turn them into energy for your workouts, it’s an essential supplement for anyone dieting or trying to lose weight while preserving lean muscle.*1

UK researchers found that subjects taking L-Carnitine burned 55% less muscle glycogen, while increasing fat burning by 55%. They also found that subjects taking L-Carnitine could consume an extra 640 calories of fast-digesting carbs a day without gaining any additional body fat.*7

Protect Your Brain and Body

In addition to these proposed fat and lactic acid fighting capabilities, L-Carnitine is also thought to be a potent antioxidant – supporting and protecting both brain and muscle functioning at the highest levels.*2 By reducing free radical damage in the brain, it’s thought that L-Carnitine may even enhance cognition, reduce depressive symptoms, and improve sleep.*2

L-Carnitine only works if it’s absorbed

NutraKey’s Carnitine provides maximum absorption and bioavailability in a delicious tasting liquid formula. Unlike some other forms of L-Carnitine, NutraKey has specially developed their L-Carnitine formula for maximum absorption and bioavailability – meaning that your body will get more out of each and every bottle.
