What separates Fortagen from BCAA products with similar amino acid ingredients?
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, but there are over 200 of them! This means that some are toxic, while others are essential for human life. By way of example, only 21 of the 200+ existing amino acids are actually required for protein synthesis in human tissue, including for repair and the growth of the musculature. Access to the right amino acids and protein is therefore critical for health.
BCAAs contain both essential and nonessential amino acids. Fortagen contains a proprietary blend of only the essential amino acids, which are the amino acids that the body uses to synthesize protein, but is unable to produce on its own. The ratios in Fortagen are optimized for anabolic utility by the body. In order for protein synthesis to occur, all 8 essential amino acids must be present at the same time and in the correct ratio to one another.
The more the ratio of the 8 essential amino acids changes from the optimal pattern, the less the body utilizes the protein. Fortagen has the most optimized amino acid ratios to maximize muscle growth. You get the highest protein nutritional value in the world at nearly 100% usage.
