ProSupps HydroBCAA is here to change the way that you think about amino acid supplementation. For years, BCAA supplements reigned as king and rightfully so with strong research data supporting the key role they play. However, these supplements utilizing BCAAs alone are missing something essential. Literally speaking, they fail to include EAA as well in the formula which can actually cause more harm than good! With research comes innovation and with innovation comes HydroBCAA, the complete amino acid matrix formula that utilizes the power of both a research validated 2:1:1 ratio branched chain amino acids (BCAA) and essential amino acids (EAA) to deliver the comprehensive solution for preventing muscle breakdown and speeding exercise recovery.†
- Comprehensive Formula Features 7g BCAA + 3g EAA/serving
- Promotes Maximal Protein Synthesis & Lean Muscle Support†
- ZERO Sugars, Carbs or Artificial Flavors; Ideal for Any Fitness Goal
HydroBCAA: The Science
The complete amino acid matrix of HydroBCAA contains both BCAA and EAA, a crucial aspect of formulation that ensures you are maximizing protein synthesis, supporting lean muscle, improving glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity, decreasing post-training soreness and preventing muscle breakdown.†
BCAA include the amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. Individually, they each play a powerful role in the body upon ingestion:
Often considered the ‘king’ of all the amino acids, Leucine is one of the most beneficial amino acids all around, by itself it can stimulate muscle protein synthesis which is the process responsible for muscle growth and recovery.
Stimulates protein synthesis to a lesser degree than leucine, its primary role is that it significantly increases glucose uptake and the usage of glucose during exercise, leading to greater energy production. There is also evidence that isoleucine may prevent fat storage by stimulating the receptors that inhibit fat storage and increase fat burning.
This BCAA is known for its effects in promoting muscular endurance and decreasing fatigue during exercise. The mechanism of action is through valine competing with and winning against tryptophan for entry into the brain. Tryptophan converts to serotonin which signals to the body that it is fatigued, therefore leading to decreases in muscle endurance and strength, so by preventing tryptophan from entering the brain, valine prevents fatigue.
Essential amino acids, more commonly known in short as EAA include the 8 amino acids Methionine, Lysine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan as well as the 3 BCAA Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine. They are all considered ‘essential’ as the body can’t produce them on its own and are responsible for a variety of functions. Included in such is stimulating the production of cellular energy and promotion of cellular repair, initiation of the creation of the critical enzymes necessary for healthy (and complete) digestion, preventing muscle breakdown during periods of intense physical stress, and the enhancement and protection of the mitochondria.
Is your BCAA supplement doing more harm than good?
Yes, you read that correctly: Recent studies have shown that ingesting supplements with only the 3 BCAA can actually be detrimental to your progress! You see, EAA (including BCAA) must be consumed from your diet or supplementation and when creating proteins in the body including the protein that makes up lean muscle, all 9 must be present… not just the 3 BCAA. As a result, without EAA, the body will terminate the production of new protein due to the lack of materials or worse yet, the body will start to break down pre-existing muscle protein in order to get the required amino acids.

BCAA+EAA – Superior Results
As you and probably tell by now, BCAA alone can only go so far. Even without the recent studies highlighting the possibility that BCAA without the rest of the EAA present can terminate new protein production, it has been shown in research that a combo of BCAA+EAA can elevate protein kinase levels way higher than BCAA alone. A kinase is simply a enzyme that modifies other proteins by chemically adding a phosphate group, resulting in the creation of a functional change to the target protein, meaning your protein can do the job your body is calling it to do… rebuild, recover and refuel!
HydroBCAA: The COMPLETE Amino Acid Matrix
Don’t JUST use any BCAA product. Ensure that you’re getting the most out of your training and recovery by incorporating
ProSupps HydroBCAA. Going beyond just BCAA,
HydroBCAAis powered by 7g of the research validated 2:1:1 ratio of BCAA + 3g EAA, a hydration matrix and absolutely ZERO sugars, carbs or artificial flavors. The difference is clear:
HydroBCAAis the evolution of complete amino acid supplementation.
- WHAT IS HYDROBCAA?
HydroBCAA is the complete amino acid matrix formula that utilizes the power of both a research validated 2:1:1 ratio branched chain amino acids (BCAA) and essential amino acids (EAA) to deliver the comprehensive solution for preventing muscle breakdown and speeding exercise recovery, all in a sugar-free formula.
- WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING HYDROBCAA?
HydroBCAA contains both BCAA and EAA, a crucial aspect of formulation that ensures you are maximizing protein synthesis, supporting lean muscle, improving glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity, decreasing post-training soreness and preventing muscle breakdown.
- WHAT MAKES HYDROBCAA UNIQUE?
HydroBCAA is a revolutionary product as it not only features BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acid) but a full EAA (Essential Amino Acid) profile. This is crucial as recent studies have shown that ingesting supplements with only the 3 BCAA can actually be detrimental to your progress! EAA (including BCAA) must be consumed from your diet or supplementation and when creating proteins in the body including the protein that makes up lean muscle, all 9 must be present…not just the 3 BCAA. As a result, without EAA, the body will terminate the production of new protein due to the lack of materials or worse yet, the body will start to break down pre-existing muscle protein in order to get the required amino acids.
- WHY A 2:1:1 BCAA RATIO?
There have been numerous studies conducted on BCAA in a clinical setting proving their effectiveness, and the fact of the matter is that a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine:Isoleucine:Valine is the only ratio supported in scientific literature. While you may have seen other ratios of BCAA on the market such as 4:1:1 or even 8:1:1, more isn’t always better. Stick with the scientifically proven 2:1:1 BCAA ratio of HydroBCAA.
- WHY 7G OF BCAA?
It has been demonstrated that 3.5g of Leucine is the ideal amount of leucine for maximizing muscle protein synthesis (repair and building of muscle tissue). In each full serving of HydroBCAA you’re provided 7g of BCAA at a 2:1:1 ratio, meaning you are getting the clinically proven 3.5g of Leucine with the correct ratio of the other BCAA in each serving for maximizing your results.
- IS HYDROBCAA SUGARFREE?
Yes, we formulated HydroBCAA to have a premium, refreshing taste while remaining completely sugar free!
- WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO USE HYDROBCAA?
The ideal time to take HydroBCAA is in the peri-workout period of training, meaning before, during and after training. This crucial time frame helps prevent muscle breakdown, stimulate protein synthesis and help reduce muscle fatigue among a variety of other research validated benefits.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
As a dietary supplement mix 1 scoop (14.5g) of HydroBCAA ™ with 8-10 fluid oz. (240-300 ml) of cold water. HydroBCAA can be consumed prior to training, during training and after training for maximum efficacy.
