Most marketing companies hype some different ratios of BCAA’s or mix in inferior amino acids to make you feel like you are getting “more aminos.” APS Nutrition utilizes the scientifically-proven 2:1:1 ratio but stands out from the crowd significantly in two ways –
(1) Chain’d-Reaction® is an ultra-concentrated BCAA formula that delivers a “proprietary” tripeptide and ultra-micronization BCAA. Chain’d-Reaction® also contains in a time releasing matrix of L-Leucine to the muscles faster and for longer periods of time than typical BCAA products. APS Nutrition always known for its innovation has “turned the BCAA category on its head!”
(2) Chain’d-Reaction® utilizes the transport of peptides into cells, that is a well-documented biological phenomenon, which is accomplished by specific energy-dependent transporters found in a number of organisms such as amino acids. The amino acid/peptide transporter family of proteins was uncovered by sequence analysis of a number of recently discovered peptide transport proteins. The protein shows a distinct preference for tripeptides composed of L-amino acids, and discriminates dipeptides on the basis of the position of charges within the substrate.
