Your Guide to BCAAs


BCAAs supplements have been one of our most HIGHLY REQUESTED products by our #NHgang and we are beyond excited to introduce our first ever BCAA + Hydration range. 

Are you skeptical about BCAAs? Then this blog is for you! Keeping reading to get to know BCAAs supplements. 


So, what are BCAAs? 

BCAAs stand for Branched Chain Amino Acids - a group of three essential amino acids (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine & L-Valine) responsible for the building of proteins, and synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters within your body. Essential, means that these amino acids cannot be naturally produced by your body and therefore must be consumed through foods and supplements. 

Amino acids are a vital building block of a healthy, functioning body, so that’s why we created our very own natural BCAA + Hydration range, made using only the highest quality functional ingredients to help you optimise your workout and day. 

Do they actually work?

When used as an intra-workout supplement (consumed throughout physical activity) studies have shown that BCAAs supplements are effective in boosting muscle growth and are even able to enhance muscle recovery and restoration. 

Studies also show that BCAAs can help reduce fatigue after intense exercise.
What does all that mean? Well, by incorporating a BCAAs supplement into your exercise routine, you should be able to workout harder and longer, with fewer recovery days! 

What are the benefits of our BCAA’s + Hydration range? 

Our BCAA + Hydration blend isn’t your average BCAA supplement. Our functional blend of amino acids in particular has been formulated to help you RESTORE, HYDRATE and RECOVER. Not only are you getting a more potent source of amino acids per serve than other BCAAs supplements, but you’re also getting the HIGHEST grade quality amino acids available to further enhance muscle recovery, reduce workout fatigue and boost muscle growth.   

You may have also noticed that the key difference in our BCAA + Hydration range lies in our  HYDRATION benefits. The main point of difference with our blend is that we have created a formula that contains intense hydration properties from coconut water and mineral salts, to keep you hydrated throughout exercise and training. These two ingredients are bursting with electrolytes and are effective in maintaining your body’s electrolyte balance.


What’s inside our blend?

It’s time to get technical. At NH HQ, we pride ourselves in using only the highest grade quality ingredients. Check it out: 

Branched Chain Amino Acid Blend: A group of 3 essential amino acids (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine) that must be obtained through foods and supplements, as our body does not naturally produce these amino acids on its own! With protein anabolic properties, our amino acid blends may help assist in faster muscle recovery and restoration, meaning you may be able to workout longer and harder.

L-Glutamine: An amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. Scientific studies have also shown that glutamine may also promote digestive health, brain health and boost exercise performance.

Sodium Chloride: This mineral salt is an essential ingredient in maintaining the electrolyte balance of our body’s fluids, and therefore assists in keeping our body properly hydrated.

Coconut Water: Coconut water contains natural electrolytes that our body uses to restore and maintain optimal hydration. 


    Are our BCAA’s natural?

    Yes! Our BCAAs + Hydration blend contains nothing artificial, no synthetic ingredients, no refined sugars and no caffeine! Unlike other BCAAs supplements, our range is also VEGAN friendly, gluten free and dairy free.
