BC2A by Equine Sports Performance is a patented branched chain amino acid formulation for enhancing muscle adaptation to exercise training in the horse. A pioneer in bringing the first equine paste of pre-digested branched chains to the horse market to support decreases in lactic acid build up, heart rates, better muscle tone, and recovery in the equine athlete. This product is a natural, safe and effective oral paste that when given 30-60 minutes prior to exercise allows for a readily available circulating pool of branched chain amino acids.
Branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These amino acids play crucial roles in protein synthesis and muscle metabolism. While BCAAs are commonly associated with human fitness and athletic performance, they can also be relevant for horses.
In equine nutrition, BCAAs are recognized for their potential benefits in supporting muscle development, repair, and recovery. Horses engaged in intense exercise or undergoing muscle rehabilitation may benefit from BCAA supplementation. BCAAs can help reduce muscle protein breakdown, promote protein synthesis, and aid in the recovery process after strenuous exercise or muscle damage.
Furthermore, BCAAs can serve as an energy source during prolonged exercise. As the body's glycogen stores become depleted, BCAAs can be metabolized in the muscles to produce energy. This can be particularly relevant for endurance horses or those participating in prolonged competitions.
Adding BC2A oral paste formula 30-60 minutes prior to exercise supplies a premium circulating reservoir of branch chain amino acids used for supporting the demands of working muscles at the time of exercise.
