Whether you just enjoy a daily run after work, or you’re heading for the marathon, it might be worth considering BCAA’s before you next throw on your running shoes. BCAA’s which can be found in food but also products such as NOCCO BCAA functional drinks (www.nocco.com), which are sugar free and available in six delicious flavours; Pear, Peach, Citrus/Elderflower, Tropical, Orange and Red Berries.
Nocco has also launched a limited summer edition – with a taste of exotic fruits. It has the same popular functionality of the beverage enriched with BCAA – now with an extra summer fresh flavour.
Like other products in the NOCCO BCAA-range, the summer edition is sugar free and contains 3000 mg of BCAA (branched chain amino acids), 180 mg of caffeine and six different vitamins. It also contains L-carnitine, green tea with EGCG, caffeine and six different vitamins.
BCAA’s such as NOCCO BCAA assist with recovery of muscle tissue, which during two or more hours of exercise, your body breaks down and your muscle protein supply starts to dwindle. Taking a BCAA drink can help your body replenish the amino acids lost during training.
