- 8:1:1 BCAA Ratio
- 15g of Amino Acid per Serving
- Intended to Activate mTOR
Modern BCAA+ from USP Labs has been developed to strict conditions including… BCAA Ratio formulation with mTOR activation in mind ,Ultra-Micronized, Must Mix Clean, No Artificial Colors and No Artificial Flavors.
mTOR (Mammalian Target of Rapamycin) is a large proline-directed serine-threonine protein kinase that’s responsible for a wide range of physiologic and metabolic functions in several cell types, including both adipocytes (fat cells) and myocytes (muscle cells)… Among its many roles, mTOR is responsible for hypertrophic growth (an increase in muscle cell size) for example, protein synthesis and tissue morphogenesis. A wide range of data have suggested that amino acids are capable of directly regulating mTOR signaling pathways in skeletal muscle, including the possibility that they activate some of the cell signaling elements upstream from mTOR in the insulin/growth factor signaling pathway.
In particular, the amino acid leucine is indicated as being primarily responsible for the branched chain amino-acid induced activation of mTOR signaling pathways, and therefore mTOR’s effect on protein turnover and synthesis. As a result, USP Labs have created Modern BCAA+ with an 8:1:1 Ratio in favour of Leucine.
