You're holding the newest supplement technology!
Any serious bodybuilding athlete knows about the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine, and valine. But never before have they been "super-changed" by combining them in a 3:1 ratio with glutamine and compressed into a bioavailable yet candy-like format so small you can fit two dozen of them in your hand. That's new Chewies BCAA Micros, created in Betancourt's own 140,000-square-foot cGMP manufacturing facility.
To build lots of muscle, your muscle cells must synthesize lots of protein. The BCAAs are building blocks in protein synthesis. But they do more than this. They also regulate it. For instance, supplementation with BCAAs has been shown to activate some of the same enzymes believed to be responsible for the muscle-building effects of resistance exercise (1). Other studies suggest that BCAA supplementation may exercise-induced muscle damage and soreness (2) and reduce levels of perceived exertion (3) so that working out doesn't feel as tough. To make new Chewies BCAA Micros even more powerful, we combined leucine, isoleucine and valine with glutamine. Supplementation with glutamine may spare the BCAAs from premature degradation.
Even the pros get cravings for candy. Now you can satisfy them with a nutrient-dense, "physique-friendly" supplement that is slated to become the world's favorite "Muscle Candy", new Chewies Micros!

Muscle protein synthesis is a 24/7 process. So you can supplement with Chewies BCAA Micros any time of day. However, if your goal is to protect your muscles from exercise-induced damage or soreness, or enhance exercise-induced increases in muscle protein synthesis, then take 1-2 servings (1-2 scoops) of chewies BCAA Micros before and/or after exercise. Chew each table thoroughly before swallowing with water.
